'Grimm' fan recap: Hell hath no fury like a wesen scorned

Season 4 | Episode 11 | “Death Do Us Part” | Aired Jan 30, 2015

NBC’s Grimm serves up an electrifying 11th episode with “Death Do Us Part.” After saving Monroe from the Wesenrein in the winter premiere, Nick successfully sees Rosalee and Monroe off on their honeymoon. We even get a cute little scene where Juliette and Nick FaceTime with the happy couple to prove they actually made it there. Juliette decides it’s a good idea to confide in Renard and keep Nick in the dark about her Hexenbiestiality, while Nick & Co. investigate a wesen who likes to electrocute people to death in the name of love.

Wesen of the week

The case of the week focuses on a “haunted house” where a double murder took place years ago. A trio of ghost hunters who call themselves “Ghost Seekers” spend the night in the house to investigate. Sorry, but all we could think about was Ghostfacers from Supernatural.

Turns out there is something strange in the house, but it’s not a ghost, it’s a wesen. The wesen electrocutes the Ghost Seeker’s leader, leaving him charred to a crisp. Enter Nick, Wu, and Hank to investigate the death. Luckily for the gang, they’re able to recover video footage that the Ghost Seeker took and get a look at the responsible wesen. All we can really tell from the image they captured of the wesen is that he’s green and he looks a lot like the Mask. Ssss-smokin’!

The couple that was killed in the house were Patty and Stetson Donovan. The police who worked on the case when it first happened believe that Patty’s secret lover, Theo, killed the couple in an act of revenge and passion. How Theo was able to scorch them to death in their bed without damaging any other part of the house remains a mystery. Nick, Hank, and Wu’s investigation leads them to information on Theo’s wife, Lily, who’s still alive and well.

Cut to a homeless man parking his shopping cart outside of the Donovan house and crawling onto the blackened mattress. If you’re thinking this man is just here for a night of harmless squatting, think again. Lights starts flickering and he begins to hallucinate, seeing images of Patty and Stetson dancing around the house.

Time to visit Lily! Turns out she’s a wesen, and she admits that she told Stetson about the affair between Patty and Theo, hoping that he’d help stop it. Instead, Stetson killed Patty and Theo in an act of rage. Lily offers up the name of the wesen that Stetson is: Matança Zumbido. The boys do research on this mysterious creature and learn that only way to take him down is to pierce Nick’s ear and then put paste made from the skin of a poison dart frog in it.

Obviously Nick has a vial of the dart frog skin handy in the trailer. Oh Grimm, how we love you. Nick isn’t down to pierce his ear, but he doesn’t have much of a choice. Lily and the two remaining Ghost Seekers are at the Donovan house, and as it turns out, the homeless guy is actually Stetson. Stetson is a little cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, and his hallucinations lead him to grab Lily and make her pretend she’s his wife. The Ghost Seeker guy is filming what’s going on from inside a closet (totally not weird), and he makes a sound that gets Stetson’s attention. Right before Stetson can kill him, Nick busts in and takes him down since he’s impervious to the shocks. Before Nick can arrest the guy, Lily pops a cap in Stetson’s back. Booyah! Case closed.

Hexen-Juliette is desperate for a cure

Renard thinks he can get Juliette in contact with a family friend named Henrietta, who may be able to help her out. While the two are out and about, some jerk comes dangerously close to hitting Juliette with his car. When she confronts him and he treats her like crap, the Hexenbiest within doesn’t take it too kindly. She woges in the street and accidentally blows up his car. Yes! We vote for Juliette staying a Hexenbiest forever.

When the guys roll up to the trailer to research the electro-wesen, they come upon Juliette going through books inside. They’re just like, “Oh hey, Juliette. What are you doing in the trailer?” And Juliette’s just like, “Oh hey, guys. I’m just trying to be a more integral part of the group now that Trubel’s gone but I actually have to go now that you guys interrupted me. Nothing weird going on here!” Juliette quickly and awkwardly leaves, and when Nick sits down at the table, he sees that she had been looking at the Hexenbiest book. He blows it off as curiosity about Adalind.

Juliette’s next stop? Henrietta’s house. Henrietta (Garcelle Beauvais) is 50 shades of creepy and tells Juliette to shut the door behind her before proclaiming, “I believe we have a great deal to talk about.” Something tells us this isn’t going to go well.

Renard’s open wounds

Renard heads home to end the days with a nightcap (as you should) and thinks back to the time when he was shot. All of a sudden, we see blood coming through his shirt and realize that his bullet wounds are bleeding! Then, he takes his shirt off so that we can see his sculpted abs and pecs … and his freshly opened wounds. What the heck is going on?

Let’s discuss!

  • What is it going to take for Juliette to come clean to Nick? The longer she waits, the worse it’s going to be. We’re sure she’s hoping she can get it all sorted out before he knows anything—but let’s be honest, that’s not going to happen.
  • When are Adalind and Viktor going to come into play? We haven’t seen them in a few episodes, so we’re guessing they may pop up in Portland at the worst possible time.
  • On a scale of one to 10, how happy are you that Wu is now an official part of the Scooby Gang?

Best quote of the night:

Hank: You ate her cookie.
Wu: I did?
Nick: Yeah. That’s why you ate your carpet.

Leave your thoughts and predictions, and we’ll catch you next week. Until next time … #FangsOut!
