Hey Gasmii! I am SUPER excited to be covering Grimm because it is hands down my favorite television show. The last few episodes weren’t recapped on here so I’ll do a quick catch up so we are all on the same page. There are only 2 episodes left to this season but don’t worry you guys, we got renewed for a second season with 22 episodes!
Episode 14 - Plumed Serpent
“Said the dragon, ‘Many knights have left their lives here, I shall soon have an end for you, too,’ and he breathed fire out of seven jaws.”
The episode starts with two guys attempting to steal copper from an abandoned building…except they aren’t the only ones there trying to get some copper. Turns out a Daemonfeuer beat them to the location and has already stolen all the copper. The Daemonfeuer torches the two men and escapes but is seen by a man driving by. Nick and Hank meet the witness later and learn that the suspect is a homeless man with a daughter, Ariel, that Nick tracks down to a local bar where she performs as a fire dancer. He spots Monroe who explains that Daemonfeuer are basically dragons who also like to loot and steal. Ariel flirts with Nick as he questions her and later pounces on him and kisses him when he follows her home for more information. Ariel later lures Nick to her home but she isn’t there when he arrives with Hank. As he heads into bed that night he is surprised to find not Juliette but Ariel in his bed. Ariel kidnaps Juliette in an attempt to bring Nick to help her father who is dying in an old train tunnel. With Monroe’s help, Nick is able to defeat the dragon and rescue Juliette before Ariel sets the tunnel on fire resulting in killing herself. Juliette isn’t sure she wants to continue with their relationship but doesn’t break up with him.
Episode 15 – Island of Dreams
“Soon he was so in love with the witch’s daughter that he could think of nothing else. He lived by the light of her eyes and gladly did whatever she asked.”
Adalind is back! Captain Renard tells Adalind that she needs to speed up her plans in order to make Hank fall in love with her but she doesn’t understand why they aren’t going after Nick directly. Captain reminds her that the way to a man is through his best friend and gives her a vial. A couple of Skalengecks are getting high and end up robbing the Fuchsbau shop owner and murdering him in the process. Nick and Hank arrive to investigate and believe that the owner might have been dealing illegally under the table so they start searching for answers. Nick tracks down the next of kin and interviews her to find out what she might know only to discover that she is also a Fuchsbau. She reluctantly agrees to help Nick search through her brother’s stash to find a motive for his murder. Adalind gives Hank some special cookies and tells him not to give them away which we find out is because they are part of a spell which makes Hank go completely creeper style over Adalind following her and constantly calling her. The robbers return to the shop while Rosalie is going through her brother’s things. She manages to escape and insists that Monroe stay with her for protection. Wu ends up eating one of the cookies which causes an ill effect on him but luckily he was at the shop with Rosalie and Monroe who reverse his effects and take him home to recover with Nick…except the effect of the potion leaves him eating weird shit. The gang realizes that the robbers were after J, a drug that Rosalie was once addicted to, so she shows Nick where to buy some which leads him to the robbers. Monroe ends up closer to Rosalie who decides to stay in town longer than she expected under the guise of getting her brother’s shop in order but really it was because you can’t resist Monroe’s charms.
