“The Spirit you seek in the water is only a reflection of yourself”.
Has Hank become a wesen too? And how?
Read on for our recap of the new Grimm episode, “Mishipeshu”.
In the opening scene of “Mishipeshu”, ‘two days from now’ Nick and Hank are fighting, and it looks like Hank is not himself… suddenly we see him woge into some kind of wesen.
‘Now’, Nick and Hank are invited for dinner at Monroe and Rosalee’s house. They discuss Juliette. Nick is worried and angry, because he can’t find her and she doesn’t want talk to him. Before the dinner can even start, he leaves, once again to try to find Juliette.
Rosalee says she wants to have a look at Renard’s book of spells, to see if there’s something that might help Juliette.
In the meantime, Juliette has some “fun” at a pub, where she terrifies a guy who tried to buy her a drink. It looks like her wesen side is taking over…
The next day, Renard brings the book and the hat used by his mother to Rosalee and Monroe.
Wu informs Nick that Juliette has been arrested, after what she did at the pub. When he meets her in her holding cell, she tells him that she half blames him and half loves him for what has happened to her. She likes the power she has now, and she doesn’t think they can ever be the same anymore. There aren’t any chances for a Grimm and a Hexenbiest. Nick decides not to let her out.
Rosalee calls Renard to tell him she might have found a way to reverse the spell that caused Juliette to become an Hexenbiest, but she needs the help of another Hexenbiest to obtain the correct formula. Renard tells her he might know someone who could help.
This week’s investigation involves the death of a school custodian named Lawrence. Wu, Nick and Hank meet Deputy Farris, with whom they have already worked before. She’s already at the scene, explaining that the wounds on Lawrence look like an animal attack, only the attack happened inside the school. The only incident happened at the school was a case of bullying involving a young student, named Simon, who has now left. It was believed that someone inside the school’s staff had helped the responsible of the bullying, so Nick and Hank think it might be revenge. Simon’s father died when he was just 5 years old, murdered, and Simon witnessed the attack. Simon is a Native American. Hank and Farris go to talk to the tribe with whom Simon is supposed to be. After he left the school, he wanted to know more about his heritage. Currently, they say he’s out in the woods, looking for his guardian spirit, as the tradition says.
In the meantime, another victim is found, with the same wounds found on Lawrence. Wu finds out that they knew each other. They also find out the name of a third person who knew both Lawrence and the second victim, and who might be the next victim. When Hank, Nick and Farris arrive at his house, they find him injured, and it looks like someone is still inside the house.
Nick and Hank find someone, a creature, and it looks like it is wesen, only even Hank can see it, and Farris too.
Talking with the man who’s in charge of the tribe, Hector, it looks like what they saw wasn’t wesen, but a Mishipeshu, and Simon might have been possessed by this being. They need to track him down fast, and Hector suggests a ritual to enter the dream world. During the ritual, Hank has a vision of Simon when he was a child. He sees the three men who killed Simon’s father, the same men that were attacked. Farris doesn’t feel well so Nick takes her away, but Hank can’t get out of the vision, he is still with Simon in his past, in the dream world. Hank finds Simon in the real world, and the Mishipeshu possesses Hank’s body, to kill the last of the three men who’s still alive.
Hector manages to get the Mishipeshu out of Hank’s body. The third man who killed Simon’s father is still free though, because there’s no physical evidence tying him to the crime.
Later that same night, the Mishipeshu comes back to kill the third man. After that, we see that it has possessed Farris’ body.
