They go down a hallway (we’ll call it the Green Mile in honor of Michael Duncan Clark, who would have been a bad ass Wesen), and find Stanton going bonkers in an office.
RIP Michael Duncan Clark
They tell him not to do it, so you know he does it, and BAM, shots fired and he’s down. Before he dies, he turns into a Reinigen which is a rat-like creature. Hank doesn’t like rats.
Hey Hank, BOO!!!
Then the show intro kicks in, and I was so happy to see the original intro without the lame voiceover. Thanks for listening NBC.
Back outside, Ranger Rick is acting normalish, but as he gets his police report, he randomly hits on the policewoman, and she’s all like “um, no thanks, Ranger Rick”. And he’s all “you don’t know what you’re missing”. (Yes, she does… and it’s not much.)
You’re not hot, and my hair isn’t long enough for a ponytail. Deal with it.
RENARD SCENE ALERT… Nick and Hank review the case with him, and while Capt. Renard does, unfortunately, keep his shirt on for the entire scene, Sgt. Wu interrupts them with some more info on Stanton. Nick tells Hank to go get some sleep, that he’ll do the report and Hanks all “You don’t have to twist my arm” and is out of there. Something about Hank’s comment this week and last week when he was like “I could use a nap”, tells me that I’d be the Hank in a Nick and Hank relationship… I’m always ready to volunteer for a nap or just to leave early. We can’t all be heroes. (Oddly, now I feel like a sub… I’m hungry. “Hey Hank, are you busy?)
Yes Hank, it’s nap time.
Renard is at his desk and gets a call from the French Royal, but it’s not his brother, looks more like a butler of some sort. And he appears to be trying to help Renard keep things in line. He says the Families have sent another one and that he should be getting to Portland soon. They sent a Nuckelavee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuckelavee) to come for the key.
Renard, the Royal Family is not pleased that you are trending #shirtlessrage.
Renard stares pensively out the window. I should do that more, maybe I’d have more productive days.
<<I hope the audience thinks I look deep in thought. Focus, Renard, focus.>>
Monroe is at his house calling Nick, while Nick is on Monroe’s doorstep calling him. It’s so cute. You go first, no you go first, no you, no you… SHUT UP… Nick tells Monroe that he’s been telling Hank about being a Grimm and some other things. Monroe gets a bit upset, but Nick says he hasn’t told him that Monroe is a Wesen. I guess I’m not sure why it matters so much to Monroe. I mean, he’s a good guy, but I guess Wesens are a private bunch… unless they’re pissed. Monroe suggests a coming out party.
