  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this episode of Grimm, and it was exciting that Juliette was in on the action as a Spanish-speaking interpreter! I love that even though at times my life seems to be disorganized, I can always count on my Hopper’s Primetime Anytime feature to record and organize all the primetime shows from the four major networks. I was so busy this weekend with Halloween parties that I didn’t get a chance to watch La Llorona until this morning. One of the guys I work with at DISH was asking me all kinds of questions about La Llorona yesterday morning, and now I think I know why. It was fun to reminisce of the tales of La Llorona that my grandpa used to tell me, and I think it was a clever way for the writers of Grimm to introduce the exciting new blue character, Valentina!

    1. Yes, I’m so glad just like you for others to learn about this famous tale we all loved or be scared of. I remember my mother used to scare us with this story. When I heard it was showing on GRIMM I was excited. Thanks to NBC to introducing it to other all around the world.
