Grimm Recap: Ep. 21, “Headache”

GrimmWe join this week’s episode in the middle of turmoil as Nick is pointing a gun at Monroe because Juliette is making him using her hexenbiest powers. Nick, Monroe, Rosalee, and Hank had tried to help calm the hexenbiest within Juliette with the help of Adalind using a potion they concocted, but Juliette was having none of that. Rosalee screams at Nick to put the gun down but he is unable to as Juliette is completely controlling him and his pleading with her is falling on deaf ears. She makes him fire the gun, just as Hank charges over and knocks Monroe out of the way, both narrowly missing the bullet. Juliette shrugs it off and thanks them for doing the hard work for her by getting rid of Adalind’s powers. Almost killing someone who used to be one of her best friends appears not to have had an impact on her at all. Juliette takes off and Rosalee, Monroe, and Hank all say she is no longer the person they knew and they are done trying to help her. Nick agrees and goes to call Renard to warn him of how dangerous Juliette is, but when he does, a different voice answers the phone. It is the same voice as our murderer from last week, Jack. He tells Nick that Renard is unavailable, that they had a rough night, and Captain Renard can’t come to the phone. Realizing the Captain may be in danger, Nick and Hank head out to his house to check on him and call Wu to meet them there.

Wu arrives at Renard’s house just as Nick and Hank pull up and they spread out to surround the house, Wu taking the back and Nick and Hank taking the front, battering ram in hand. Turns out they don’t need the battering ram as Renard’s door is unlocked. They quietly head inside and upstairs where they find Renard confused as to why they are there. He is unharmed and tells them he was just asleep. They ask where his phone is and he states he has left it downstairs so they all head down and Wu checks the phone. Sure enough, Nick was the last one to call him. Nick points out that his door was open and Renard says that it shouldn’t have been. After they tell him that when Nick called Jack had answered, Renard tells them he had been visiting Henrietta’s and then came home and took a nap.

They all go to Henrietta’s but find her dead, sprawled out on the floor. Hank pulls Nick aside and reminds him that Jack said WE had a rough night when Nick called Renard and maybe they are looking at it wrong. Renard insists the guy must have followed him after a press conference and Nick calling scared him off. Nick instructs Wu to escort Renard home and keep a round-the-cock watch on his residence. It seems like they are questioning Renard’s involvement in all this, but still make it clear they don’t think he is even aware of what is going on.

A guy pulls into a garage on a motorcycle and quickly grabbed by two men. At another house, a couple of men break in and tackle a couple and we see they are Kenneth’s men. The couple are Nick’s neighbors and Kenneth’s guys are overtaking their houses in order to keep an eye on Nick’s. Of course Juliette is helping them and she and Kenneth break into Nick’s house where she notices he’s taken down all their photos together. They head upstairs as she tells Kenneth about the different enter and exit points of the house before coming to Nick’s bedroom. The bed is nicely made and Kenneth remarks about how it is where he and Adalind got pregnant. This in turn upsets Juliette and she pushes Kenneth onto the bed and climbs on top of him, telling him she wants him to be clear on just how valuable she can be before kissing him…and then some.

At Renard’s house, Nick asks him why he visited Henrietta and Renard says he was having some issues. He tells Nick about his recurring dreams of being shot, about waking up in strange places and about his scars bleeding. Renard is worried Jack may be framing him or drugging him so Nick and Hank instruct him to keep his phone with him and to try and get some rest. Once outside, Hank asks Nick if something is off and Nick suggests something may be controlling Renard. They tell the officer outside to notify them if anyone goes in or out as Renard watches them leave from his window.

Nick goes home and heads upstairs and notices the nicely made bed is now pulled apart. He draws his gun and checks the bathroom but there is nothing there, either. He recalls being in the bed with Adalind and calls Hank to say that she may know what’s going on with the Captain.

Renard dreams about being shot again, but this time he wakes up quickly. He goes to the bathroom and looks into the mirror and the scars are still there. He wonders aloud what the hell is going on and then you see a change throughout his body and his mannerisms. Jack’s voice comes out of Renard just before his body changes again and it is still Renard, only now his scabs are bleeding from all the shifting and Renard keels over in pain on the bathroom floor.

GrimmNick calls Bud who is napping in his living room chair with a baseball bat and asks to talk to Adalind. Bud tells him she is asleep and Nick says it’s unnecessary to wake her then hangs up. Just then, there is a knock at the door and Bud woges, clearly startled, as is typical since he’s usually a mouse. He goes to check who it is and Nick calls from behind the door that it is him so Bud lets him and Hank in. Nick goes to the bedroom to wake Adalind himself and Hank notices how jumpy Bud is, not that he isn’t usually jumpy, but now even more so. Hank asks Bud if he has been sleeping and Bud says yes, then quickly admits he has not. Bud tells Hank he doesn’t know how they do this every day with all the tension, and Hank just says they have a lot more than a baseball bat.

Adalind wakes up to Nick standing by her bed and is immediately on the defensive. She just knows Juliette drank the potion and is back to normal and now Nick is there to kill her since she is of no use to him anymore. Nick assures her he is not there to hurt her, and tells her that Juliette didn’t drink the potion but she destroyed it, preferring to be the person she is now. Nick goes on to tell her that something is wrong with Renard, that he keeps dreaming he has been shot and waking up bleeding. She asks if Renard is having blackouts and if he was pronounced dead when he was shot. Nick isn’t sure if he was pronounced dead but he is having blackouts and Renard’s mother was there at the hospital with him. Adalind says that he must have been dead then and something traveled back with him, spirit possession. She asks if Renard knows but Nick says he doesn’t remember anything. Adalind tells Nick things will only get worse and the thing that hitched a ride could completely take over. Hank walks in and, overhearing part of the conversation, asks how to get the spirit out of Renard. Adalind tells them they can’t, they have to kill him to open the portal again for the thing to leave.

At Rosalee and Monroe’s house, Hank and Nick fill them in on the dilemma with Renard. GrimmHank suggests using the Dead Faint potion like they had to do on Monroe so it appears that Renard has died. Rosalee wants to be certain Renard is involved before they attempt something so dangerous and Hank tells her they haven’t been able to tie Renard to any crime scenes yet, but they’ll check the footage and see if there is something they missed. Just then, Nick gets a call telling him Renard is on his way back into the station. Hank and Nick leave to beat him there and Rosalee says they will start working on the potion.

Someone dressed in black enters the burned out trailer and walk around, stopping to pick through the scorched items that are left for a moment, but we never see their face.

Hank and Nick go through the street surveillance footage and when Nick pulls up footage on Alder Street he recognizes a black SUV. He tells Hank he’s found something and when they zoom in, it’s Captain Renard, putting him in the area around the same time as the first murder. Just then, Renard arrives and asks to see both of them privately and Hank and Nick are unsure of who or what they will be talking to.

Renard tells them he is very concerned and explains about how he was dreaming, woke up and that he heard a voice when he was looking in the mirror. He doesn’t remember much else and Hank tells him he must have blacked out again. They ask if he remembers being near the first killing when it happened but he says it’s impossible because he was at home in bed. Hank tells him he blacked out and that’s why he doesn’t remember, and Nick tells him everything Adalind told them about spirit possession, leaving out the “having to kill him” part. Hank tells Renard that Rosalee and Monroe are working on something that may help and when they ask that he turn over his gun, he does. Renard assures them that whatever is going on, it isn’t really him and he needs to be watched by someone that understands. Nick and Hank ask Wu to watch the Captain and Jack take over Renard’s body as he watches Wu, saying this should be a jolly good romp.

GrimmWu drives Renard home and notifies Nick he is there. Nick tells him they will meet up with him soon as Rosalee and Monroe finish up the Dead Faint potion. Rosalee says that the Captain can’t know what it is because Jack may know everything Renard knows, so they’ll have to tell him it is just a memory potion instead. The spirit of Jack has to believe Renard is dying in order for him to leave and Nick suggests they may have to shoot Renard.

At Renard’s house, his wounds start bleeding again and he freaks out and draws in blood on the bathroom mirror but it is not him that is controlling his hand. Renard goes running outside, yelling to Wu that “it’s inside” and when Wu gets out and asks where, Jack responds that it’s inside him and knocks Wu out. They’re going to have a bloody good time.

Juliette was dropped off at Nick’s house to wait for Kelly Burkhart and we later see that Grimmthe person in black approaches Nick’s door. Kenneth calls Juliette and tells her someone is on the porch but they don’t know yet if it is Kelly and note that there is no child with her. As they watch the person turn and leave, Kenneth tells Juliette it was just some kid and they end the call. Kenneth has one of his men follow the person, who loses them down an alley. As he looks for them, the person in black comes up from behind and cuts Kenneth’s man’s head off, and we see that the person in black is Trubel.

Jack has taken Wu hostage and is driving with him, gloating about being back, when Nick and Hank show up and Renard’s house. They see Wu’s car is gone and his gun is on the ground so Nick calls in to have the car tracked, then tries to call Wu but Jack ignores the call. Inside, they see the blood on the mirror that reads “Welcome back Jack.” Hank gets notification on Wu’s car’s location, so they take off to catch up.Grimm Jack pulls off to the side on a street and spots a blonde hooker. Wu tries to talk some sense in him but it’s no use. Jack leaves Wu in the car and goes over to the hooker. She and Jack walk off together as Wu is screaming in the back of the patrol car and trying to kick out the windows to stop him. Nick and Hank show up and Wu tells them what direction the Jack and the woman went. Nick uses his Grimm sense and hears Jack whispering to the hooker and is able to grab Jack’s hand just as he is about to slit the woman’s throat. He tells her to run and she does as he takes Jack down. Just then, Renard returns to his senses and has no idea what is going on. Nick, Hank, and Wu take Renard to the spice shop and explain they have something that will bring back his memories. Renard asks what they’ll do if he remembers killing all those women and Nick assures him that they know he wasn’t responsible. Renard takes the potion and Rosalee suggests he lie down. Renard complies and soon he is out.

GrimmA vehicle pulls up the Nick’s house and a woman gets out. Kenneth calls Juliette again and confirms it is Kelly and she has the child. Kelly and the little girl go up to the house and go inside while Juliette waits upstairs in the bedroom. Kelly calls out to Juliette and Juliette hears a struggle downstairs as someone screams, followed by growling, then a man saying “take it outside.” Juliette then hears a child crying and goes downstairs to find Diana sitting alone on the floor. She picks her up as Kenneth comes in with blood on his face that is not his and tells Juliette they got Kelly. Kenneth approaches and admires Diana as Juliette looks a little remorseful.

Rosalee checks Renard’s pulse and tells everyone it is slowing down. As it gets almost to a stop, Jack wakes up and quickly grabs her by the throat. He threatens to break her neck and Wu, Nick, and Hank all pull their guns on him. Rosalee woges and bites Jack’s hand and when he releases her Nick, Hank, and Wu open fire on Jack. He is hit several times by rubber bullets knocking him back and down. As they watch some black smoke leave Renard’s body, Rosalee gives him a shot to revive him. Renard chokes back to life and asks why he feels like he got hit by a truck. They ask what he remembers and it’s not much. His chest begins to hurt again and when he opens his shirt we see the wound scars disappear. He is cured of what was possessing him. There is a knock at the door and it’s Trubel. She tells them they have to go now, that there are a lot of people at Nick’s house and she just had to kill a hundjager that was following her, and something is going down.

Juliette, Kenneth, and Diana drive away from Nick’s house and Kenneth says it’s been a very successful night.

Everyone from the spice shop arrives at Nick’s house to find there has been a struggle in his living room. On the floor is a box with blood seeping out of the bottom (what’s in the booox). When Nick opens the box, he finds his mother’s severed head and is horrified and furious. Trubel looks inside as Nick screams “NO NO NO…”

Grimm: EP 17: Hibernaculum

GrimmThis week the episode opens with Juliette and Renard in his home after his fight with Kenneth, all beaten and bloody. She undresses and they kiss after agreeing killing Adalind is a great idea, we can assume things happen. I’m less than excited to even include the parts that involve Juliette and I kinda want her to disappear… or die. You know.

Anyways, the case opens with a man driving down the road and his car breaks down. He sets out on foot to find help and happens across a quaint house with an older lady inside who is on the phone with her daughter. He knocks and the woman’s daughter advises her mother not to open the door. The man outside is turning blueGrimm from cold and pleads with her to help him. When she refuses, he busts into the house, woges into a reptile type wesen and bites her, apparently draining all the heat from her as she is frozen solid when he finishes. He then takes off in her car. Hank and Nick arrive to investigate and decide to start searching for his previous car he must have left behind.

Monroe is at home, working on a clock when he begins shaking and having flashbacks from when we was kidnapped, seems he is suffering from some PTSD. Rosalee comes home and it startles Monroe who woges, which in turn startles her. He brushes off her inquiries into what is wrong by stating he was just thinking about time, and how you never know how much you have left.

The roadblock they set up works and the suspect makes a harsh u-turn to avoid it, only to have Nick, Hank, and Wu coming toward him the other Grimmway, boxing him in. He has no choice but to stop and he takes off into the woods on foot. Nick uses him super Grimm sense to follow him through the trees. The suspect is hiding but becoming increasingly colder, which causes him to attack Nick who subdues him and arrests him. Back at the station they discover his name is Knute Gunderson, from North Dakota. While they are discussing what type of wesen he could be, they find him frozen solid in his cell. They manage to find his other car and discover fast food containers, enough for three people. Which means he was not alone when the car broke down. When the trailer has no answers, they go meet up with Monroe and Rosalee at the shop and they tell him it sounds like a Varme Tyv, a wesen that has to steal the heat of a person to survive since they are cold-blooded. Usually they are fairly docile, but during the winter they go to a hibernaculum, which is a secluded place they can hibernate together and feed off each others heat until the winter ends.

Adalind goes to Kenneth and states she needs new clothes because nothing fits with her much more Grimmprotruding baby bump. He agrees and sends her off with a bodyguard to shop. While outside a store, Juliette is across the street and uses her new powers to slide a gargoyle off the roof of the shop towards Adalind. The bodyguard sees it just in time and manages to get her out of the way. Adalind is livid when she goes back to the hotel and tells Kenneth he needs to kill Juliette before Juliette kills her. He is intrigued by Juliette being a hexenbiest and thinks she may be willing to help them locate Nick’s mother, and the baby.

While Nick and Hank are at the spice shop Juliette shows up and there’s a big dramatic confrontation between her and Nick, she woges, and shows Monroe and Rosalee that she is a hexenbiest. Rosalee tries to be positive about it and is quickly shot down by Juliette, who then storms out after blaming all of them for what has happened to her (waa waa waa waa.) Monroe, Nick, and Hank take off after hearing from Wu that another frozen body was found. It is Gunderson’s brother they find, he froze to death after failing at stealing a nurse’s heat who had stopped to try and help him get to the hospital. Meanwhile another man attacks a cab driver, freezes him with a bite and steals his cab. It is the last Gunderson brother and they find a relative in Portland and head to the house.

Grimm Once they get to the house, they go in and find a hidden door on thr floor under a rug. They head down speculating they had found the hibernaculum and find a pile of people sleeping, with the third Gunderson brother, Sven, in the mix. They try to move everyone off him to pull him out, but this wakes all of them and they chase them down. Hank, Monroe, Wu and Nick take off back upstairs and outside, seeking shelter in a nearby barn. Sven and another man manage to break in first, as Nick and Hank try and fight them off. Eventually the entire swarm of people break through, but quickly begin falling down from being too cold. They then decide to move all the people back into the cellar in the house to finish out their hibernation, and Sven is left in the barn to freeze to death. To cover up everything that went down,Grimm they place him back in the stolen cab and leave it in town to be discovered and called in by a woman looking for a cab ride.

We end with Nick at home, staring at a picture of him and Juliette, remembering what his Aunt had told him about the curse of being a Grimm and how he would lose those that were important to him.

Grimm: EP 15: Double Date

This week’s episode begins with Renard having nightmares of when he was shot and died, only to wake up covered in blood. There are no wounds, just the blood, and a lot of it. He is very troubled by waking up to a blood soaked chest with his wounds still scarred over.

Cut to a bar where a man sits drinking as a distraught woman comes in, and sits next to him. He lends an ear to her tales of woe, that her husband lied and left her. He offers a compliment, and she eagerly goes for it. Next thing you know they are headed to her condo and into the bedroom. She draws the curtains, and tells him she will be right back as she heads into the bathroom. While she is in there, he begins to undress and get ready Grimmfor the night ahead, when a man busts through the bedroom door, threatening him with a gun. He accuses him of being with his wife and that he should kill him for it, so the guy offers the woman’s husband all the money in his wallet, five hundred dollars. The husband takes it as the guy high-tails it out of there. Once outside he pauses to catch his breath, just as the woman exits the condo. He confronts her about her husband and demands his phone, which he dropped in the bedroom, and his money back. She fights with him, and when you think he has the upper hand, she woges and becomes very slimy. She then rubs it on his face and it eats through him like acid.

GrimmPolice find the man the next morning, and Nick and Hank are called onto the scene. From his wallet, they determine he is from out of state and in town on business. Wu informs them the man died from being exposed to necrotizing fasciitis, which is similar to toxins emitted by certain slugs, bugs, and plants like the venus fly trap. They conclude it must be wesen, but are not sure which one. They note his cell phone is missing, so Wu starts pinging it. This leads to the nearby condo where they find it is virtually spotless inside, except for the guy’s phone and a single fingerprint. The manager that let them into the condo tell them the guy that owns it is out of town and rents it out. She relays that it was just rented by a very pretty woman.
Back at the station they run the fingerprint, and it comes back to a man named Linus Baluzian, a con man with a record and wonder if he is working with the woman. They run the card used to rent the condo to see if anywhere else had been rented using the card.

Meanwhile we see Linus in a hotel room yelling at Stacy about how she messed up the previous night, That if she had just used the back door to leave, none of it would have happened. He tells her that she is going out again tonight, and had better not screw it up. It cuts to Stacy as she starts getting ready, and mumbling that Linus would be nothing without her.

During all this, Renard had visited a doctor who told him he could find nothing wrong, so Renard decides to visit the spice shop. He asks if they still have the spell book his mom used to help Juliette so Rosalie goes and gets it for him. His mother, however, closed the book, and they haven’t been able to open it. He tells them only the blood of a hexenbiest can open it. She asks if her knows any that would be willing to help, and of course he knows Juliette is one now, even though Rosalie and Monroe don’t know yet. Renard returns home to figure out how to ask Juliette if she will help him open the book. She has been sleeping in her car, avoiding Nick and we see her get a call from Nick which she sends to voicemail. Nick asks her to call him back and we see that not only is she in her car, but she is sitting outside of Renards house.

Hank is in the trailer when Nick comes in, visibly disturbs and tells Hank he is fine when questioned about it. Hank allows him to dismiss the inquiry and states he has found something in an old medical book. He thinks the wesen is the Huntha Lami Muuaji and that their skin secretions are deadly. It states that they always travel in pairs one male, one female, and that the females have never been caught. TheyGrimm decide to talk to Rosalie and Monroe just as Wu states he got a hit on the credit card and found a nearby apartment had been rented as well. Nick and Hank stop by the spice shop and talk Monroe into being bait at a nearby bar they believe the couple is using as their hunting grounds to scam men out of money. Monroe reluctantly agrees and heads out to the bar. Nick, Hank and Wu are all posted nearby to the apartment to make sure Monroe is safe.

As Monroe is in the bar, sure enough Stacy comes in and begins pretending to be sad again about her husband leaving her. Monroe sneaks back to tell Nick he thinks it’s her and he and Stacy head to the apartment. She pulls the same trick of heading into the bathroom once inside the apartment and Wu radios Hank and Nick to say that the apartment was empty before they went in and he hasn’t seen any sign of Linus yet. While Stacy is in the bathroom, Monroe is pacing the room in front of the window, when Linus bursts in again with a gun. Monroe tries signaling Hank and Nick who are in a car outside and when they realize what is going on they and Wu head into the apartment. When they do, GrimmMonroe woges and shoves Linus back who then manages to escape outside. Nick takes chase and Wu and Hank go to apprehend Stacy from the bathroom.

Linus manages to get far enough ahead of Nick that he takes his jacket off and woges into the worm-like thing and then into Stacy, and calmly walks off. Nick catches up and only finds Linus’ jacket and inside the pocket are Stacy’s earrings. Nick heads back to the apartment where he explains that is why the females are never found and Linus is the only one with a record, they are the same person. Linus and Stacy argue more about the events of the nights and she blames him for having picked the bar. This time she will be picking the bar.

Back at the spice shop Nick determines they need to capture Linus, not Stacy and that the only way to Grimmensure that is to use testosterone to force the wesen as Linus only. Rosalie helps by making the testosterone and Nick retrieves the small crossbow with hollow arrows, which Rosalie fills with the testosterone.

Back at Renard’s house, Juliette knocks on the door and when he lets her in she asks if she can stay with him. He is the only one that can really help her figure out what she is now. He tries describing what it is like and tells her she must be careful. He agrees to let her stay only if she helps him by cutting herself and dripping her blood on the book in order to open it. When she agrees and it opens she asks him what is in it. He tells her it contains all of Adalind’s spells and she is now very interested in reading the book also.

Later that night, Stacy is leaving a new bar with a new guy when Wu approaches and asks the guy for his ID. As he is questioning the guy, Stacy slips off and is cornered by Nick and Hank. She woges into the slimy work and nick shoots two darts into her. It doesn’t seem to affect her at first, but then she woges back into Linus. They are then able to arrest him and take him into the station. He explains that Stacy and him are in love and he cannot live without her. He signs a confession, but Nick cannot assure him if or when Stacy will be able to come back.

Adalind is timing her third pregnancy test that is also shown to be positive. She is freaking out and decides she must sleep with someone, fast so no one knows it’s Nick’s. She decides on Viktor, but when she goes to see him, she finds he has been sent away by Frederick. He informs her she will not be seeing Viktor again and someone else will be coming to keep her company.
