Grimm: Octopus Head (Recap/Review)

Grimm

“A man’s real possession is in his memory. In nothing else is he rich, in nothing else is he poor.”

The season four premiere of Grimm ended with huge cliffhanger, since Sean Renard died. However, in Octopus Head episode, the blonde woman who was standing in front of Sean’s room, sees what happened and she enters the room. After the doctor tries to stop her, she releases some black foggy thing that freezes time. This woman then takes a giant snake, which bites Sean in his chest and it looks like it has a second head, with which it bites this woman’s chest too. As the snake turns into ashes, Sean comes back from the dead and it looks like the hot blonde is actually his mother.

Meanwhile, Nick, Hank and Trubel are following the guy with the octopus head. After he checks into a hotel, Trubel follows him to his room, where he overhears a phone conversation. He obviously plans on attacking another victim, so the only Grimm that is left in town decides to keep following him. Well, despite the fact that Nick and Hank tell her to stay put, Trubel keeps walking behind this guy. However, he sees her and Trubel gets into some serious trouble when he ties her up and voges in front of her eyes, which she closes just in time. When he goes after his initial victim, Trubel attacks him and he decides to look into her head a little bit. Well, Nick and Hank come to the rescue just in time, but not before the guy with the octopus head finds out that Trubel is a Grimm and it appears that the horrific images from her head will haunt him for the rest of his life.

Before Nick goes to Trubel’s rescue, FBI Agent Chavez, who was shown to be a Wessen in previous episode, pays him a visit. She starts asking him all sorts of questions, because she apparently just wants to put the pieces of the puzzle together. However, her true agenda is revealed when she voges in front of Nick and then waits for his reaction. Well, since he is not the Grim (any more), there is no reaction and as she leaves the police station, Chavez calls someone and says that Nick is not the Grimm, but she might have some idea about who is.

After she successfully took away Nick’s powers, Adalind arrives to Vienna. She heads straight to the Royals and after some initial hesitation, Victor lets her in. He keeps lying that her baby is with them and he even tells Adalind what a lovely baby her daughter is. Victor then lures the Hexenbiest into the cellar and he imprisons her. Finally, he tells Adalind that her daughter is not with the Royals and that the Resistance stole her baby.

Agent Wu keeps digging and he soon finds out that Theresa Rubel was a suspect in a double homicide. He confronts Nick, but before Wu gets any answers, Burkhardt starts writhing from the pain in his head. Furthermore, at this same moment, Adalind also experiences a very painful headache and it appears that the two of them switch bodies for a few minutes. Nick is suddenly looking at rats in the dungeon and Adalind is looking at Juliette. They soon switch back, but it appears that they are somehow connected.

Grimm‘s second episode closes with Trubel, who goes for a bike ride and she is stopped in the middle of the street by a black van. Trubel gets kidnapped by the FBI Agent Chavez, who suspects that Trubel is the Grimm. Well, it was most certainly an unexpected twist and this means that Nick will now have to fight with Wessen without his sidekick. However, to be honest, Grimm lost its magic the moment Nick lost his powers, so hopefully, the creators will bring the magic back to the show soon.
