Honestly, the highlight for me of Grimm tonight was to see Mark Pellegrino back on TV after his stint on Supernatural two seasons ago. I love that man.
Anyway, Hank is losing it and quickly. He thinks that he’s going crazy – seeing things that aren’t there, people changing from creatures to real people right in front of his eyes, etc. Then to make matters worse, his old friend Jarold (Pellegrino) appears and tells him that his daughter (Hank’s Goddaughter) has gone missing.
It’s up to Nick and Hank to step in and find the missing girl, and Nick immedietly can see that Jarold is not really a human, but a creature. With the help of Monroe, they discover that Jarold is actually a coyotl. Coyotl’s are basically wolves that travel in a pack, and to leave your pack means death. When his wife died, Jarold managed to leave behind her crazy family and took their daughter to live a normal life.
Well, the relatives are back, and now that Carly is 17 years old, she’s ready to produce more coytl cubs. With her relatives. Ew.
Monroe schools Nick and explains that coytls introduce the female to the pack through their fertility ceremony which is done on the full moon after the woman’s 17th year. Now that Nick knows where to look, he and Hank set out with Jarold in tow to visit Hayden, Carly’s uncle.
Long story short, the trio finds Hayden and gang in an abandoned farmhouse with Carly. She’s terrified, and when Nick and Hank pull her from her hiding spot, she freaks and recognizes Nick as a Grimm. This causes her to turn into her coytl form, and Hank takes aim at his Goddaughter.
It’s a good thing Nick is there to defuse the situation, and he explains to Hank that he’s not losing his mind, that Nick can see the creatures just like Hank can. This calms his partner down, and it’s back to saving the girl and getting rid of the coytls.
Poor Hank. The guy is just having a rough time with everything in life right now!
While Nick is battling with real life monsters, he also has to deal with his personal issues – mainly Juliette and the fact that she has no memory of who the heck he is. It turns out that she remembers everything else under the sun, but she has no memory at all of Nick. Even pictures of the two of them don’t jar her memory, and Nick is left trying to be patient while his finance doesn’t even remember that they live together.
I have a theory that when Juliette sees Renard, she’s going to think he’s the one that she’s in love with. Some sort of side effect from the potion that he took. Hopefully that will be explained in new episodes of Grimm fairly soon! As much as I don’t care for Juliette, she’s sort of growing on me and Nick just seems really sad without her.
Although, I will say that Nick is much more kick ass this season than he was last! He’s all about taking care of business, and I hope this trend continues. I enjoy bad ass Nick!
