The good thing about Grimm, its getting better with every episode. The chemistry between the characters gets better every day and by the time Nick lands with Monroe in the battle pit of the ritualistic fight club in episode 12, I was completely hooked. Since this is my first blog about the series, here’s some basic info: Silas Weir Mitchell plays Monroe, the vegetarian blutbad and David Giuntoli plays the lead role of Nick Burkhardt aka Grimm and does a fabulous job as the homicide detective going through a life changing situation. Bitsie Tulloch plays the sweet and lovable Juliette Silverton and Russell Hornsby plays Hank Grifin, Nick’s partner.
Now, before the hiatus, we witnessed Hank get deeper into the claws of Adalind while Nick takes Juliette to a weekend getaway which turns out not be such a festive occasion after all, thanks to the presence of a new breed of wessen. Sergeant Wu is also acting strange since his cookie debacle, and Rosalie also made a come back as an apothecary to help Monroe and Nick save a woman in trouble. Unfortunately though, when Nick proposes to Juliette she says she cannot marry him because she feels he is hiding something from her and until he can be with her as he was before his aunt arrived, she cannot say yes.
This time around, we see Hank getting deeper under Adaleide’s spell and looks like nothing is going to stop him from self destruction. Nick finds out about the spell when he discusses Sergeant Wu’s condition with Monroe and Rosalie. Sgt Wu gets into serious trouble when he tries to eat random objects and has to be taken to the hospital. Rosalie tells Nick that the last time, she could only give Wu a cure for the symptoms but the underlying problems still persists for which they have to find an antidote. Nick also learns that if the cure works on Wu it would also work on Hank.
Meanwhile, Captain Sean Renard has a confrontation with some foreign mooks, one of whom calls himself his cousin. They want Sean to give them the key that Nick has but the Captain says he needs more time. The altercation becomes violent and the Captain ends up killing both of them, and then sets the crime scene up to look like the two murdered one another. When Nick and Hank get to the scene they retrieve a cell phone which they cannot get into and want the lab to fix it. But when Sgt Wu faints, the Captain uses this time to take the mobile phone and change its Sim card.
When the lab sends back the phone, there is nothing on it. Still Nicks presents a theory to the Captain that he suspects three people were in this fight. The Captain tells him that unless he finds solid evidence, the bodies are going to have to go back to their native countries because their families are politically influential and don’t want anyone to get involved in their family matters. Nick goes back to Rosalie who has finally found the antidote, and they administer it to Sgt Wu who is in bad shape back at his house. Wu is cured so they head towards Hank to get the antidote to him.
But when the three of them get to Adelaide’s house, where Hank is lying unconscious on the bed, Rosalie tells them that this is a different kind of spell than before and the only way the spell can wear off is if they could have the spell-doer’s blood. Nick says he can kill her, but Rosalie says that only a Grimm who gives her a drop of his blood can break her hold on Hank. Nick finalizes a meeting place with Adelaide, who asks him to bring the key. They have a very violent confrontation.
So who wins the title fight?
