It's not filler, I actually thought this was a very good episode unlike some others like the initial ones, the pace was good and it fleshed out all the characters.

Also the chameleon girl is really cool.

Chameleon girl is cool. And it's cool that Blake knows her personally. And it was nice to see all four girls in one episode for a change.

... But it really does feel like this whole SEASON is filler. It might just be me! I've been known to be wrong in the past a time or two (thousand.) It just feels like the plot is inching forward at a snail's pace.
Honestly it all has to do with the way the plot was set up for this volume.

Generally, if you split characters up you have to devote time to each of them still, which slows down overall pace but allows for a more diverse story. A time skip allows for characters to have had time to grow, and the world to change a bit, meaning you need to re-establish things a bit before you can really get things back to full speed, lest you leave the audience confused as to what's happened.

In this case, both happened. Te characters are split up and there was a time skip, that means they have to re-establish what's going on around each character individually and progress them individually. Doing both of these things at once slowed things to a crawl, especially because it's 4 characters, which means 4 times as many catch-ups, and a large spread of progress over the episodes.

All in all, the story is moving very slowly because of these factors. It's not filler, since filler is just random stuff put in to kill time, and this is all very plot important. That said, I understand how it can be offputting, as I've felt the same way. Unless this volume concludes with them at least cutting this number down a bit from 4, I can't imagine the next volume doing much better. This just isn't a good situation to be in with the story, especially not when volumes tend to be only a dozen or so episodes and we're presumably nearing this year's climax already.

I doubt they're going to show us Ren and Nora on their own.

We're nearing the finale in another two or three episodes, and I'm wondering how that will go. What's you guys' theories?

I liked the episode but the screenplay was a bit confusing.

I think Ren's semblance is simply the ability to enter a state wherein he's calmed and focused. When in contact with others, he can transmit it to them as well. Since Grimm sense negative emotions it seems reasonable that if you can completely block out those emotions you'd basically be cloaked to them.

Did they announce how many episodes it'd be total or we can only guess it?

The last I heard, it was going to be 12 episodes. And we've seen 11 of them, which would make this weekend's episode the finale. I hope I'm wrong though. I hope we get closer to 15 episodes, because there are just so many story lines and loose ends that are unlikely to be tied up if the next episode is truly the finale.

But I hope I'm wrong on all of that, too, because it does nothing to advance Oscar's story line, and leaves a cliffhanger on the rest of the characters. >< RT hates us.

Finally saw the last three episodes and caught up. really like the new grimm's villian's design and wish they had used the dark fog effect on all of the nevermore grimm's designs like they did in that flashback, really improved on it.

Ren's semblence seems to just straight up be inner peace, very interesting and would explain how mellow he's been through the whole series, lol.

Also disappointed that Salem didn't cliched-style kill Tierian lol

After Season 3's ending, I don't hope for something as epic and leaving me with so many more questions.
