“No one is so thoroughly superstitious as the godless man”.
Will Nick and Juliette be able to deal with the fact that she’s now a Hexenbiest? And what secret is Adalind hiding?
Read on for our recap of the new Grimm episode, “Bad Luck”.
Nick is so upset after having witnessed Juliette’s transformation, that he thinks she’s Adalind. His Juliette could never turn into a Hexenbiest.
Juliette proves him the contrary, but that doesn’t change the fact that Nick is upset, and he feels guilty. Because he wanted to be a Grimm again, Juliette is now paying a very high price.
But there is still the case of the week to solve, so Nick meets Hank and Wu at the crime scene. A 17-year-old kid, named Peter, secretly met his girlfriend nearby his house, but ended up getting his foot cut off. His mother tried to save him, but nothing could be done. Apparently the killer took the foot with him.
Nick sees that Peter’s mother is wesen.
Hank and Wu discover a similar case, and there was a suspect: a big guy wearing a long coat, and carrying an axe.
In Nick’s trailer they find out which kind of wesen Peter’s mother is: a Willehara, a rabbit-like wesen. They also find out that it was believed that a Willehara’s foot could help a couple to procreate, if placed beneath them. The wesen who chase them are called Leporem Venators.
Talking with Monroe and Rosalee, they suspect fertility clinics could be the places where couples ask for the Leporem Venators’ help. So Monroe and Rosalee decide to go undercover.
In the meantime, Peter’s mom and sister are trying to run away, but the Leporem Venator is already after them, and he manages to kidnap Peter’s sister.
Monroe and Rosalee are successful in finding who’s involved in the hunting of Willeharas, a doctor’s nurse, who provides their feet for the wesen couples.
Nick and Hank manage to track the Leporem Venator down, and they save Peter’s sister.
Nick decides to talk to Henrietta. She tells him there’s no way to help Juliette, he just have to accept her for who she is now, just like she did with him being a Grimm. Henrietta also warns Nick to keep a safe distance from Juliette. Her powers will get stronger and stronger.
Adalind talks to Renard. She tells him that once Viktor will find their daughter Diana, he will kill them both. She tells him she wants them to be on the same side, and she knows Renard is now working with Nick, even helped him being a Grimm again. Renard finds it hard to trust her.
Juliette and Nick have another confrontation, where Juliette says she’s aware that Nick can’t even look at her in the same way anymore, even if Nick claims he doesn’t want to give up on her.
Adaling talks to Henrietta, because she wants to know how Juliette learned to be so good so fast. But Henrietta has other kind of news for her: Adalind is going to have another baby. And it’s Nick’s baby… remember when Adalind turned into Juliette and slept with Nick?
Obviously, Andalind is not at all happy about it…
