Episode 609 “Tree People”<br>
Written by Brenna Kouf<br>

Seems the literary reference was dropped for this week. Unless we missed something, which is very possible.<p></p>
There are other stories that have walking trees. I thought of J.R.R. Tolkien's Ents. And of course we've recently seen Groot on screen. But this didn't really remind me of any of those references. There are two different tree things. One that catches people that have sinned against nature and then sacrifices them to a large tree thing that, absorbs them. I think. Our Grimm team tries to stop this ritual killing. I don't think they were successful. The last shot in that story seems to say the forest protector will live to venge another day.<p></p>
Adalind (Claire Coffee) is back this week. She didn't have a big role in this week's story, but she was back. As was most of the gang, the noticeable exception was Trubel (Jacqueline Toboni). Where oh where did HW send her off to? There are only four episodes left. Can we please have her back?
