How far would you go for your child?
That's a recurring theme in this week's episode of Grimm as Nick investigates a bereaved scientist whose colleagues are dropping like flies, while Monroe finds fatherhood thrust upon him all too suddenly, and Renard faces an uncomfortable truth about his daughter Diana.
In "The Son Also Rises" Nick (David Giuntoli) Hank (Russell Hornsby) and Wu (Reggie Lee) find themselves stumped by a series of impossible clues during an investigation unlike any they have had before.
Meanwhile, as the research continues into the origins of the cloth, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) learn that Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) is still feeling the after effects of the death grip.
And Renard (Sasha Roiz) secretly reaches out to an old friend to get answers to the origins of the symbols drawn by Diana.
We've seen the episode a little early, thanks to our friends at NBC, and have a collection of tidbits and teasers to share with you below. As always, we avoid outright plot point reveals and spoilers that would ruin your enjoyment of the episode. However, we urge you to take caution nonetheless, as who's to say exactly what constitutes a spoiler, and who are these ScreenSpy people anyway?
Remember last week how a hideous skull creature with glowing yellow eyes peered out of Nick’s bathroom mirror at Eve? If that ever happened to us, we’d cover up every mirror within a five mile radius and wear a sack cloth over our heads just in case. Not Eve, who this week takes a moment while alone in the dark to pick up a mirror and gaze into it long enough to be considered officially looking for trouble.
When trouble finds her, and Eve lands in the hospital with concussion, it’s Nick who drops his current case and rushes to her bedside, telling the others “Juliette is hurt!”
Wait. Did he just say Juliette?
Prepare to see some Nick and Juliette flashbacks as Nick settles in for a long dark teatime of the soul by Eve’s bedside. The thing is, most of these flashbacks are a little on the unpleasant side, and include Juliette’s betrayal and Nick discovering his mother’s head in a box.
Um, we’re not sure what the writers are aiming for here.
