Several months ago, I posted my disapproving review of Netflix’s original television series, Hemlock Grove. It wasn’t so much a review as it was a means to vent after having marathoning the show with the boyfriend over the span of a few days.
In a way, I also needed to wrap my brain around what I had just watched. Had I enjoyed it to some extent? Yeah. Had it irritated the absolute bejeezus out of me? Sure bloody did.
That post has since become my most popular on my blog, and StatPress informs me that my last twenty or so search terms have all been Hemlock Grove related. So let’s beat a dead horse, and answer some questions that have popped up!
READER BEWARE: SPOILERS BEYOND

Sure was. Thanks for reminding me.
how can roman godfrey not know he is a vampire
From what I’ve gathered of the horrendous final couple of episodes, an upir is not an upir until they die by their own hand. In the case of Olivia, she sliced off her own tail and bled to death somehow? (I don’t think the writers know how tails worked.) In the case of Roman, he slices his wrists believing it’s a means of escape from Olivia.
Yeah. Not so much.

Holy crow, was it ever.
does peter romancek die
hemlock Grove how did roman know Peter was a great werewolf
I don’t believe Roman ever thought Peter was a “great” werewolf. Roman knew Peter was a werewolf initially because everyone in the school thought so. That was what I gathered, anyway.
did roman rape letha his cousin
Yes. He did. Physically, it was Roman’s body, although it was part of Olivia’s manipulations. Why did she need a baby from Roman and Letha is the better question.
One might argue Letha wasn’t raped because she believed Roman was an angel, and therefore accepted (and perhaps wanted) it. But she was having sex with him under a delusion, so yeah. Still rape.
I probably just doomed myself to have to answer twenty more search term questions in another month’s time. If you’re visiting my blog and have a question about Hemlock Grove, ask it in the comments below. I’ll respond, I promise.
