'Grimm' fan recap: It takes two

Season 4 | Episode 15 | “Double Date” | Aired Mar 27, 2015

Season four of NBC’s Grimm is in its final stretch, and our Scoobies are in for some big trouble. With Juliette shutting out Nick and turning to his boss instead (awkward!), we can only imagine the drama that’s about to go down. In our recent interview with David Giuntoli (Nick), he stated that fans should expect three major cliffhangers at the end of this season. Giuntoli also shared that in the last few episodes, something monumental will happen that changes Nick forever. We have a feeling that things between Adalind, Nick, Renard, and Juliette are about to get dicey.

In this week’s episode, “Double Date,” an odd case helps keep Nick’s mind off of his relationship troubles while Juliette turns to Renard for a place to stay.

Wesen of the week. The case of the week centers around a pair of “big-ass snail” wesen—Hank’s words, not ours—who con their victims for cash. The female (Stacy) lures men in and brings them back to “her place”—where the male (Linus) then shows up, acts like the angry husband, and takes their money. Things go wrong when a victim gets angry and grabs Stacy, causing her to woge and rub her slime on him, burning some of his face off and killing him.

Hank, Nick, and Wu are on the case! After some investigating, they figure out the wesen is called a Huntha Lami Muuaji. Fun fact: The Huntha Lami Muuaji is a worm-like wesen whose epidermis releases enzymes that feed on their host’s skin. They are always found in pairs—one man and one woman. Decapitation is the most effective method for killing them.

Time for a takedown. The gang come up with a brilliant plan: Use Monroe as bait!

Monroe and Rosalee Grimm Double Date

With Rosalee’s blessing, they have Monroe sit at a local bar, listen to Stacy’s sob story, and let her take him back to her place. Monroe’s rightfully freaking out while Wu, Nick, and Hank lurk outside waiting for Linus to go inside the building. Before we know it, though, Linus shows up inside the room and pulls a gun on Monroe. How did he make it inside without Nick and Co. seeing him? Plot twist: Linus is Stacy, and Stacy is Linus. They are one. What we’re trying to say is, the Huntha is both male and female and when they woge, they can switch back and forth. So when Stacy stepped into the bathroom and told Monroe to wait, she was really woging and becoming Linus. Our minds are blown.

Linus/Stacy gets away, but now that the gang knows the truth, they’re ready to capture the Huntha. Rosalee concocts a strong batch of hormones for Nick to shoot into the Huntha. If they can successfully inject it with the hormone-infused darts, it should suppress Stacy and make Linus come out. Linus is the one with the rap sheet, so they need the Huntha in Linus form so they can arrest it. After confronting Stacy on the street, they shoot her up and take down Linus. Case closed.

Grimm Nick Double Date

We give the Grimm writers an A+ for this wesen of the week. It was a fantastic storyline with an unexpected twist, and we actually felt a little bad for Linus in the end when he cried over the thought of living the rest of his life without Stacy. Hunthas need love too!

Juliette turns to Renard. Renard is having some issues with his wounds again. He wakes up after a nightmare to find his chest covered in blood. His shirtless doctor’s visit reveals that his wounds look just fine, so hoping to find answers, he heads to the Spice Shop to ask for the spell book Adalind used when she cursed Nick. There’s a catch, though—it’s been locked with his mother’s blood and only the blood of another Hexenbiest can unlock it.

Renard’s in luck, because who shows up at his door later that day but Juliette. She starts going off about how she refuses to sleep in her car again tonight (because a responsible adult with a full-time job can’t afford one night at the Super 8) and asks to stay with him. We completely get Juliette being scared and wanting help from someone who understands her and her powers, but shacking up with Renard is going to cause nothing but drama. Listen, we love Juliette, but she hasn’t even given Nick a chance. He’s reaching out to her and promising to help her figure things out because he loves her, and she’s pushing him away out of fear.

The last scene of the episode shows Nick drowning his sorrows in a drink, thinking about Juliette, and tearing up. We take everything we said back about wanting to see Juliette be a badass Hexenbiest forever. Now all we care about is someone finding a cure so we don’t have to see Nick sad ever again. It’s heartbreaking!

Is there any chance for a cure, or is Juliette destined to be a Hexenbiest forever? Maybe the book Juliette opened with her blood will hold answers. What’s going to happen when Nick finds out she’s staying with Renard? Better yet, what’s going to happen when Nick and Juliette find out that Adalind is pregnant with Nick’s baby?

Sound off with your thoughts and predictions! Until next time … #FangsOut.
