Cut up to Juliette… she’s on the phone with Adalind’s past employer trying to locate her. (Remember, in last week’s episode Bette Midler from Hocus Pocus told Juliette that the person tried to purposefully harm her with a sick cat.) The employer says she doesn’t know where Adalind is. Now, as an aside… Juliette had said she had to be at work early (she’s a vet)… but now she’s clearly at home and it hasn’t been a full day yet, because a lot more sht happens… so again, I can’t stand her for being so btchy that morning.
Why doesn’t my match.com profile get any “winks”?
After she hangs up, she gets a call from Renard, who’s playing like he’s all worried about Nick and wants to talk about it with Juliette. Okay, Renard plays the innocent school boy about as well as I play a hot model. He says he’d rather not talk about it on the phone, so he suggests coffee the next day at 2pm. Sure… why not… doesn’t every vet have 2pm free for coffee?
I’m under a spell, I’ll wink at you.
Thank goodness, my first “wink”.
Nick goes to the Grimmobile and looks at the cache of weapons and he picks out the doppelarmbrust (that’s German for double-arrow crossbow). He takes it to Monroe’s apothecary. (Is Monroe’s clock business failing? Is Rosalee ever coming back? Do I care? No… I’m glad Monroe actually has a more involved role in the show.) Anyway, Nick wants Monroe to whip up a Serum Exomologesis… it’s a truth serum for dogs. So, I’m assuming that a Schkal is a dog-like Wesen. Nick wants to plant cupid’s little arrow in his ass so he’ll come clean about the kidnapping.
This crossbow should keep Juliette asleep. Forever.
I don’t have a potion for boring. But I do have one for lameness.
When Nick gets to Adrian’s house, he finds no one home until he gets to the basement, where we find that Adrian has been hung by his arms and tortured. While Nick is still absorbing what he’s seeing, Hank shows up and draws his gun on Nick and Nick draws his doppelarmbrust on Hank. (It’s like The Gift of the Magi, only with murder weapons. Not really, but it’s what came to mind.) Anyway, Hank thinks that Nick did this to Adrian, but Nick explains that Adrian was like this when he arrived. He explains that the doppelarmbrust wasn’t even used yet. Hank accepts this as fact, even though I’d be a little WTF if my partner was at a crime scene with a crossbow that he claims is covered in truth serum. But I’m assuming Hank is getting v used to just going along with it all. Great line when Nick asks Hank why he’s there and Hank says “because I was worried that my partner might be here doing something stupid like shooting someone with a crossbow.” (Totally took liberties on that quote… didn’t feel like rewinding again.)
