“I’m going off to a house and entering it like a snake… I will devour their babes and make their hearts ache”.
In this new episode of Grimm, called “Mommy Dearest”, Adalind is about to deliver her baby. Captain Renard’s friend is helping her. Finally the baby is born.
Meanwhile, in Portland, a pregnant woman is attacked in her house by a horrible creature.
This woman, Dana, is a friend of Sergeant Wu (Reggie Lee). He runs to help her, and she manages to whisper something to him: “Aswang”.
Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) are called to investigate the attack. Nick notices some scratches on the window, and on a tree outside the house. A witness also recalls a ticking sound coming from the window and a shadow moving, when she arrived to rescue Dana.
At the hospital, the doctor says that Dana’s baby is fine, but that her amniotic fluid was sucked out of her.
Once Dana’s husband is alone, he calls his brother in Manila. The man tells him that something like that was meant happen. Dana’s husband says that he can’t do that to his wife, and when the other man tells him there’s

Nick, Hank, Rosalee and Monroe find out in Nick’s trailer all the informations about the Aswang, but they decide not to share those informations with Wu, since he doesn’t know about Nick being a Grimm and the wesen’s
Wu though later tells them that he knows about a myth, a creature called Aswang, and he believes Dana’s husband attacked his wife and then tried to make it look like some sort of supernatural event.
Wu later goes to Dana’s house, to check that everything is fine. He sees Dana’s mother-in- law arriving to the house.
She wants to kill Dana’s baby, and she attacks her son first. Wu breaks into the house, and he sees Dana’s mother-in-law as an Aswang.
Terrified, he is attacked too. He is rescued by Nick and Hank.
