Grimm’s Bad Luck Recap

GRIMM header

After its month long break, Grimm has finally returned with a fresh new episode entitled Bad Luck last Friday. The episode was mainly about Nick, Hank and Sgt. Wu (Reggie Lee) chasing down clues linked to an evil Wesen, Vulpesmyrca, who makes good business chopping the feet off rabbit like Wesen, Willahara and then selling them to couples who are trying to conceive.

According to to OregonLive, below is a list of the things we learned from the latest episode of Grimm:

  1. Hexenbiests have powerful seductive powers: When Nick, feeling guilty about Juliette becoming a Hexenbiest as a side effect of their efforts to restore his Grimm powers, visits Henrietta (Garcelle Beauvais), he gets a demonstration of just what a Hexenbiest can do. After telling Nick that the blood-of-a-Grimm cure won’t work on Juliette, Henrietta advises Nick to either kill his sweetie, or learn to accept her just as she accepted Nick being a Grimm. Then, stroking his face, Henrietta comes closer, moving in for a kiss. He came in angry, and here he is almost smooching a Hexenbiest. “See how easy that was?” Henrietta says. Maybe Juliette being a Hexenbiest isn’t so bad, after all.
  2. Except, maybe it is so bad, after all: At the end, Nick tells Juliette that they’ll find some way to fix this whole Hexenbiest problem. But then Juliette woges, and asks Nick to kiss her. Not only does he find that proposal repulsive, Juliette adds, “You can’t even look at me.” It does seem like a challenge for Nick to warm up to Juliette in her woged state, since she looks like one of “The Walking Dead.”
  3. Sgt. Wu can’t quit the jokes: He may be gung-ho about learning about Grimm and Wesen lore, but that doesn’t mean Wu has lost his taste for wisecracks. At the scene of poor Peter’s one-foot demise, Wu observes, “Hell of a foot fetish.”
  4. Adalind has a way with Captain Renard: It seems those Hexenbiest seductive powers work best when the resting witch face is absent. Sporting a chic white coat (cut to help disguise Claire Coffee’s real-life pregnancy), sunglasses and red lipstick, Adalind almost makes Renard (Sasha Roiz) believe it when she says they need to work as a team to get their baby, Diana, back. “Damn, you’re good,” he says, giving her an admiring look. “I really do want to believe you.”
  5. Monroe and Rosalee may be thinking of adding to the family: Doing their undercover work at the Wesen fertility clinic, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) spends time in the waiting room reading about babies. Rosalee (Bree Turner) gives him a loving look, and says “You’d make a great father.” I suspect this isn’t the last we’ll hear on this subject.
  6. The Palms Motel looks good on camera: Portlanders who have driven down North Interstate Avenue are familiar with the eye-catching vintage neon sign advertising the “Palms Motor Hotel.” It’s where, in the episode, Peter’s mother and sister hole up when fleeing the foxy bad guy. Unfortunately, the sister gets taken by the bad guy, but hey, check out that cool retro sign!
  7. Nick and Hank are lead-footed drivers: How else to explain them being able to get from the Wesen fertility clinic at West Burnside and 23rd Avenue, all the way out to the woods off Highway 22 in the blink of an eye? Oh well, they may have broken the speed limit, but they got there in time to save Chloe, so all’s well that ends well.
  8. Adalind is pregnant: And it sure looks like Nick’s the father. We don’t know his reaction yet, but hers was: “Nooooooooooooo!” As if things weren’t stressful enough between Nick and Juliette already, how is this news flash going to go over? My guess: not well.
