“Ah! It was colder than ice; it penetrated to his very heart.”
Monroe and Rosalee find out that Juliette is now an Hexenbiest, while she tries to kill Adalind. And things get even worse for Captain Renard…
Read on for our recap of the new Grimm episode, “Hibernaculum”.
As soon as Renard comes back home after his first encounter with the new Prince Kenneth, he finds Juliette waiting for him, with a news: she’s going to kill Adalind. As if he didn’t have already a lot problems. And then, they kiss…
When Renard wakes up the next day, his scars are bleeding again. Then he has a vision: an intense light, and two horrible monster hands that try to grab him. The he faints.
Our weekly investigation involves the death of a woman, Esther.
While she was on the phone with her daughter, someone broke into the house. The only thing missing is her car. Her body was found frozen, even though the temperature inside the house is far from being low. She has a bite on her neck. Wu is quick to suggest something else from the “regular” home invasion.
Shortly after, the police track down a suspect. Nick, Hank and Wu chase him. The man who’s hiding from them is actually a wesen, and the woge seems to happen when he feels in danger, or angry. Nick manages to stop him. He’s scared and looks like he’s freezing, when he takes his human form back again.
His name is Knute, and he has no criminal records. Just when Nick and Hank are about to go investigate which kind of wesen they are dealing with, Wu tells them that Knute was found dead in his holding cell. Frozen. Nick and Hank check out his car, that broke down. They find traces that indicate that other two people were with him in that car.
Later that day, a nurse tries to help a man who looks like he’s freezing to death. He tries to attack her, telling her that he needed her. The nurse manages to escape. Meanwhile Hank and Nick try to find out which kind of wesen they’re dealing with, but this time it looks like his aunt’s books can’t give them any answer. They decide to go talking with Monroe and Rosalee. And they have the answer: Varme Tyv, Norwegian for “heat thief”.
They steal body heat from other people. Rosalee thinks that the three wesen in the car were heading to their hibernaculum, a place where they hibernate during Winter.
In the meantime, Wu calls them. Another man was found dead, frozen, and it’s the man who tried to attack the nurse. They find out that he was Knute’s brother.
The third man Nick, Hank, Wu and Monroe are looking for is now in Portland and attacks a cab driver.
The four of them find the hibernaculum, where a lot of of Varme Tyv are trying to survive the winter.
They manage to save the other innocent Varme Tyv, and they leave them to their hibernaculum, while the third suspect dies, frozen.
Monroe is still very upset about everything that happened to him. He still feels scared. Rosalee tries to reassure him that everything’s fine now, that time has gone.
Juliette follows Adalind while she’s out for some shopping and tries to kill her, without success.
After that, she goes to talk to Rosalee and Monroe at their shop, needing help. Nick and Hank are in the shop. Juliette shows to Monroe and Rosalee how she can woge and become an Hexenbiest, much to their shock. She leaves then, telling them it was a mistake to seek for their help.
