‘Grimm’ Recap: Face Off

By Freda Eang,

Grimm returns from its mid-season break with tensions high as ever, and it did not seem to get any lower by the end of the episode. With the identity of Juliette’s other man revealed to Nick to be Renard, Nick is ready to run over and kill his Captain. Fortunately, Monroe was able to reason with Nick since he was able to put together the pieces (with the help of Rosalee) and figured out why the Captain and Juliette have this crazy attraction to one another. We the audiences already know how this fiasco all started, but now our characters are on the same page and things look like they are spiraling out of control, especially after seeing the scene where Juliette and Renard had a violent make out session.

As it’s revealed later by Rosalee, Juliette and Renard need to be cured soon or else one of them will end up killing the other. Horrified at this piece of information, Nick asks if there is a way to stop it from happening and as most spells go, there is a cure. As Rosalee is preparing the purification potion for Nick to drink, Hank calls to inform Nick how he saw Renard snooping around at his desk at the station. Nick rushes over to station to confront Renard as he realizes that Renard is in possession of the “key”.

After making it to the station, Nick gets a call from Renard and the two ends up meeting in the woods. Nick immediately charges in at Renard and a small fight occurs between the two, before Renard is able to persuade Nick that he’s not the real enemy and that they should work together in order to fend off the other “Royals” and Adalind. Renard does so by giving back the “key” to Nick and returning with him to the shop in order to fix his infatuation with Juliette.

There are two steps to the cure, the first is for Nick to take the purification potion and the second for the three of them to all take another potion at the same time.

Unfortunately, we won’t know the outcome of this love triangle this week as Nick takes the potion in the last few minutes of the episode, lying on the ground in excruciating pain after taking it. Also, after Adalind and Renard’s little sleepover, it appears that Adalind may be pregnant with a Royal. Things are going to get a lot more interesting.

Grimm airs Fridays at 10pm on NBC.
