“If a man of pure heart were to fall in love with her, that would bring her back to life.”
As of last week, the Mauvais Dentes leaped on Nick – he managed to avoid a killing strike and punched it, giving him chance to reach for his gun. The Mauvais Dentes runs and hides in the large, dark lumber mill and he, Nick and Nick’s mother all play cat and mouse through the shadows (running across the mangled bodies of the FBI agents in the process). Until Nick and the Mauvais Dentes run into each other, Nick loses his gun and we get the epic fight scene – and either Mauvais Dentes have been seriously over-egged as “village killers” or Grimms are super-duper dangerous because they’re pretty even. Then Mummy Grimm shows up and they take times pounding it gloriously from both sides. Mummy Grimm holds him at knife point to asks questions (and gives far too much away in the processes) but the Mauvais Dentes breaks free – but gets a knife in the neck in the process which eventually kills him (after some dramatic staggering).
Mummy Grimm takes a nice fat roll of money off the Mauvais Dentes body and wants to find out who sent him – but Nick is running out the door, he has to get to Juliet
At the hospital, Rosalie and Eddie are worried, they have the potion for Juliet that will stop her degradation but Nick isn’t there – he only arrives within minutes of potion needing to be remade. They quickly run to Juliette’s room, a nurse protests but Mummy Grimm is there and she’s having none of it (oh I hope this character hangs around). The doctor also tries to stop Nick giving Juliette the eye-drops and runs straight into Mummy Grimm who sends him scurrying off to find security (damn I hope she hangs around).
Leaving the hospital Nick gets a call to a murder from Hank – at the lumber mill – 3 dead bodies including 2 FBI. Nick asks Eddie and Rosalie to give his mother a lift home (which is hilariously awkward). When they arrive, Rosalie makes a point of explaining to Mummy Grimm that Nick trusted Eddie enough to have him Wolge to Juliette so she could understand the full truth. Mummy Grimm says she doesn’t understand the relationship between Rosalie, Eddie and Nick – but maybe she doesn’t have to. Rosalie decides it’s hugging time, which Mummy Grimm endures – I don’t think she’s a hugger.
At the crime scene Sergeant Wu notices Nick’s extra injuries, but Nick puts it down to always looking force the next day. Hank also notices it but they brush it off. Looking through the scene they see the bodies have either been stabbed or almost chewed on – but Wu finds a 9mm bullet, presumably from Nick’s gun. And Nick realises when the Mauvais Dentes knocked his gun away he never got it back – it’s still in the Lumber Mill. The FBI are on the way since it was FBI agents who were killed – so they’re just taking prints and photos, the FBI will be collecting the evidence. Nick grabs his gun just before the FBI arrive.
He hasn’t covered all his tracks though, as one of the FBI agents uses the dead agent’s phone to call the last person she called – and gets Nick’s phone. Later, Nick throws his gun into the ocean.
At the office, Nick and Hank track the finger print from the dead Mauvais Dentes and match it to the slaughter on the ship – putting him as the killer and building a theory about he and the FBI agents confronting each other. Renard thinks there’s someone else though, since the killer changed into one of the FBI agent’s clothes (as the Mauvais Dentes did to pose as the dead FBI agent) which suggested he was expecting someone else. As Hank and Nick try to leave, the FBI agents confront Nick bout the call he received but he just says she asked for more information on the ship case, he said they gave her everything and no, she didn’t say where she was (Nick points out the FBI isn’t in the habit of telling them anything). Jurisdictional antler tussling begins as Renard tells them about the prints and the FBI responds with “Rawwwr, our case” and Renard pushes back “rawwr, our city.” Honestly, it’s kind of sad to watch and my only hope is it’s completely fictional. The FBI wants Nick’s gun because… I have no real idea but Nick says he wasn’t wearing one (which makes Hank blink) and Renard steps forward again to make the FBI back off (should set Mummy Grimm on them). Nick does have to leave a DNA swab though.
In the car park, Hank asks Nick about the call from the FBI agent and also makes it clear he knows Nick has been fighting again, he can tell. Hank says Nick doesn’t have to tell Hank anything because Hank trusts him – just don’t hang him out to dry. Perhaps time for Hank to be more formally introduced to the Grimm world?
