Episode Summary


Nick's mother Kelly brings Adalind from Europe and teams up with her son to protect the Hexenbeist... unaware that Viktor has sent someone to bring Adalind's child back to him.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Prepare for an angry Hexenbeist

    Nick and Renard decide it's gonna be a whole lot of fun to be on an angry Hexenbeists hit list. They let her think they've stole her baby and handed it over to the royals but later they secretly kidnap it and give it to the resistance. Even if she finds out the truth, they stole her baby and she's gonna be mad as hell. Stupid episode really, as they could have sent her to where the baby is and protected them both.moreless
  • Great episode moving the big story along nicely

    This was simply a great Grimm episode. It continued the story line concerning Adalind's Wessen child perfectly while being extremely exciting and presenting some interesting plot turns. First off we have another episode with Nick's mother which are always good. She is so cool and driven by her Grimm responsibilities. It was very interesting seeing her unconcern for everyone around her driven to take care of this child. Then the Wessen royalty arrives from Austria and threatens Renard and Nick to give him the child or suffer the consequences. Nick and the gang are harboring Adalind and the child to keep her away from the royalty. Then a plot twist is thrown in and the ultimate ending I didn't understand until the very end. The ending really was fantastic with Adalind screaming in agony after the loss of her child and Kelly driving off to who knows where to raise this child for its ultimate responsibility. I guess this big story will disappear for a while but I will certainly look forward to seeing where it is going in the future if the writers bring it back in future episodes.moreless

    • Renard: How was the birth? Was it difficult?
      Adalind: You mean, besides the "I thought I was gonna explode and die" part? What do you think?

    • Adalind: So we're back together?
      Renard: I guess so.
      Adalind: You don't seem too happy about it.
      Renard: Well, you did sleep with my brother.
      Adalind: And you slept with my mother.
      Renard: I suppose we belong together.

    • Monroe: Hey, Nick. Now, I know you're not calling this late because you don't have a problem.
      Nick: Yeah, you're right. Big one.

    • Monroe: Your mom's back?
      Rosalee: Wait a minute. Didn't your mom kill her mom?
      Nick: Yes, but Adalind does not know that.
      Kelly: For the record, she fell on a shard of glass.
      Monroe: Oh, you're... you're right there.
      Rosalee: Oh, hi.

    • Nick: The baby has some kind of power.
      Monroe: Yeah, Hexenbeist kind of powers.
      Nick: And from what I've seen... it's pretty impressive.
      Monroe: Well, thank you very much for bringing her and the Chosen One over here.

    • Renard: Don't threaten me. Not after trying to kill me. That's just bad manners.

    • Rosalee: Monroe, are you awake?
      Monroe: Are you kidding? I never was asleep in the first place. I'm too nervous we'd be killed in our sleep... to sleep.
