This song isn’t about you, Nick.
But I’m so vain. It’s gotta be.
Nick and Hank meet up with the public defender and he plays the typical over-worked/under-staffed thing, that I’m sure is very true. He says he did everything he could, but that Craig didn’t really have a great reputation after returning home from war. Besides his wife and military buddies, no one liked the guy; but they couldn’t use the military buddies as character witnesses because they could also attest to how good Craig was with a gun. Blah, blah… the lawyer had pictures of the monster too and hands them over to the dynamic duo. He says that if the Kreski brothers were cannibals, then they must have eaten all the evidence.
Whatevs, I don’t even get Hank’s Day off.
See Hank, it’s NOT a real holiday.
SHUT UP, NICK. GET OVER IT!
Off to the Grimmobile, Nick and Hank use the sketches to try to find what Craig claims he saw. It takes about 3 seconds for Nick to find the Wendigo. Wendigo are cannibals that are known to eat their guests and then bury the bones under their homes. Hank is full-on believing Craig was telling the truth. Nick says it’s time for them to meet with Craig. (I think it’s time for some Sgt. Wu, because this episode is just playing too straight for me.)
Grimm’s have hated Hank’s Day for centuries.
They head over to the prison (which must be like two blocks away because they are getting A LOT done in one day… I’ve only managed to get myself one Diet Coke and reboot my router in over 6 hours). Inside, Nick sees that many of the prisoners are Wesen, as they woge before his eyes. But I’m thinking he should know this because he friggin’ arrests them every week. Anyway, they see Craig and he has no desire to talk to Hank. He feels that Hank is there to clear his conscience, but Hank quickly pulls out the drawing of the Wendigo and Craig chills out a bit. Nick shows Craig a different picture of a Wendigo and explains to Craig that other people have seen them and that they are trying to figure out what happened. Craig goes over the story about being at their house to fix something and when they invited him for dinner, he felt that things got creepy and he wanted to leave. This is when he claims they woged in monsters and tried to attack him, but fortunately he reached the gun in his gym bag and was able to shoot them and run. (I don’t keep a gun in my gym bag… I don’t have a gym bag… there’s no reason. But I totes wish I had a gun in my purse.) Anyway, Nick and Hank promise to try to get to the bottom of this (would that be the rump roast?) cannibalism. Craig doesn’t seem too hopeful.
