This was finally answered in season three episode seventeen (about 12 minutes in), Synchronicity:
Monroe: It's your eyes.
Nick: My eyes?
Rosalee: It's how we know you're a Grimm after we woge.
Monroe: They turn black.
Rosalee: Not exactly black.
Monroe: No, you're right, actually. Black's too weak a word. It's more like infinite darkness. And we see ...
This is a common TV Trope known as Exiled to the Couch. The man has to sleep on an uncomfortable couch instead of a bed. Even when circumstances should allow him to sleep in another available bed.
The real life house that was used in the Pilot which Nick and Juliette supposedly live in has 4 bedrooms.
UPDATE: IN S2E21, the Season 2 Finale, when specifically asked "is Nick a Wesen" Monroe and Rosalee immediately (and vehemently) explain that he is not, that he is human.
Based on the idea that Wesen are all distinct species (or perhaps sub-species), no, Grimms are not.
Grimms are all descended from human knights that participated in the Fourth Crusade, ...
UPDATED: S02E04 has some throw-away dialog about this topic; I've updated my answer as spoiler-free as I could.
There are two different "seeing Wesen" effects going on here; one for Grimms and one for everyone else.
The "Grimm" effect: this permits Grimms like Nick to see through the Wesen's disguise automatically. This effect seems to work for Nick ...
Kehrseite seems to be their word for normal humans, and Kehrseite-Schlich-Kennen is their word for people who know about wesen.
I remembered them saying something in The Good Shepard, but it took me awhile to find the spelling. Turns out it was right there on the wiki:
http://grimm.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Human. Oh well.
There is no separate name for the varying levels of Woge, though it has been called a full-on Woge when normal humans are able to see the transformed states of Wesen.
A "lesser Woge" can only be seen by a Grimm or other Wesen. It can be a reflexive response triggered by fear or surprise. It is a split second display.
Woge can occur in different degrees, a ...
The children used a truck in the abductions.
Vehicles don’t leave a scent trail of the occupant(s), so Monroe would have been able to track Rosalee’s scent from the shop
(where she was grabbed) to where the truck was parked — not very useful.
He then would have been able to track her scent trail from the truck to the kids’ hideout —
but the truck was in ...
Well, in the cited episode Lost Boys, when Adalind asks Nick how long he has lived in the house he says:
About uh six and a half years. I never thought I'd be here forever, but I didn't know anything about being a Grimm when I bought it.
In The Good Shepherd Juliette offers to move out, which doesn't make a lot of sense if it is her home.
In Season of ...
First of all, as a German native speaker I have to say that the writers of Grimm haven't consulted a single German speaker or dictionary for that matter. Words are thrown together randomly, don't make sense or don't even exist. Having said that, I love the show. Now, "Kehrseite" has been used to define "normal humans" (though in fact it means "Butt/ Rear end"...

There is an awesome ...
Indeed, according to Wesen lore, when a Hexenbiest ingest the blood of a Grimm, they lose their powers but not their skills of Zaubertränke (potion-creation). Since it is possible for a human to become a Hexenbiest through the ingesting of the right potions, the removal of said powers should be as easily done as it was in the case of Adalind.
If a ...
I was just thinking about this watching Friday's episode, and after some deliberation I think the answer we're "supposed to" arrive at is that this special power only works on Hexenbiest. As far as an official canon answer, there has never been one, but based on the information we have, I think that's the most reasonable explanation.
I think the issue here ...
You can sometimes find it in music credits, however I found this answer when googling the search terms "grimm the waking dead music"
It is identified "Bon Soir Dame", I believe originally by Ed Ames,
However youtube also shows several recordings by folk groups such as the ...
The answer to this has now been revealed, namely, that Nick's blood cannot cure Juliette because of the connection between Nick, Juliette, and Adalind.
When Nick finds out that Juliette is a hexenbiest, he goes to visit the new hexenbiest expert that Juliette has been seeing, and he asks her this question. Her response is pretty abrupt, and lacking in ...
There are actually 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs in Nick and Juliette's home. Juliette explained this to Kenneth in Season 4. Also, TRUBLE stayed in the second bedroom during her stay with Nick and Juliette in Seasons 3 & 4.
The IMDB page for that episode lists three police officers (other than Nick, Hank and Captain Renard):
Sgt. Wu played by Reggie Lee
Sgt. Franco played by Robert Blanche
Officer #1 played by D'Emmanuel Ball
I'd have to rewatch the episode to check (which I wouldn't be able to do until later) but for now the best I can say is that it's very likely to be ...
From what I've seen, such as when Bud had accidentally Woged for Juliette (Bud seemed embarrassed at his accidental full-woge) near the end of season two, I believe that the Woge is an emotional response, and if a Wesen does not retain focus, they can be seen by anyone. Monroe also said to Hank that the two versions of Woge are
Nick's senses, including his hearing, sight and overall proprioception (awareness of his body, its position and things around him) have increased significantly.
He is stronger, a bit faster, far more formidable than he had been before transformation. I suspect the powers only manifest when he is under extreme physical duress.
Since the event, he has been ...
Perhaps this will be clarified in subsequent episodes,
but it’s been indicated that Wesen can recognize each other,
even when not woged — perhaps by scent.
The example that comes to mind is that, when Monroe’s parents met Rosalee,
they realized that she wasn’t a Blutbad as soon as they touched her.
If the foster care facility is run by a Wesen,
it’s a safe ...
Well I am a native German speaker and I love the show but when I hear these words... Okay I know they should based on the German language but nobody is saying anything like this in Germany and these words are false(grammar) ... For instance blutbaden means something like to take a bath in blood but the person who made these words wanted to say bloodbath and ...
Those names are not used in written or spoken German nor are they used in the original Grimm fairytales. They are very loosely based on the German language but it is often obvious that the person who made them up for the show was not a native German speaker.
Well, some are made up and some are based on existing folklore. Like the Krampus is bases in German paganism and the wendigo is based in Algonquian folklore. And so on. So even though many of the wesen seem to be made up, some are based on real folklore.
"Grimms are all descended from human knights that participated in the Fourth Crusade"
This does not means those knights were not Wesen. (I'm almost sure it was not said "human knights". I think what was said was "crusaders". That would mean knights but not necessarily human)
"These abilities are also genetic, but do not manifest in every descendant of a ...
We have been given a hint in 3x09, Red Menace. It's a minor part of an interrogation, so I'm not going to bother spoilering it:
The Wesen-of-the-week is surprised that Nick saw earlier what he is. So, sitting in the interrogation chair, he pauses a moment, shifts fully, then recognizes Nick as a Grimm. He however doesn't recognize that Hank is a plain ...
From what little we've seen, the Grimms aren't exactly keen or working with the Wesen Council, or vice-versa. Nick in particular has a very antagonistic relationship with them. So far, we've seen a number of indications that the two groups want nothing to do with each other:
Monroe was warned not to even tell Nick about the existence of the Wesen Council.
