    Santa's evil twin kidnaps naughty teenagers, thrashes them, puts them in his sack and hangs them in a big bauble at the top of the tallest tree on the tallest hill, then on the winter solstice he plans to eat them. Awesome Christmas episode!
  • Merry Christmas.

    So according to Monroe the Krampus is real and every Christmas this Santa kidnaps kids who have been naughty and hangs them from the highest tree until winter solstice which is December 21st. So tonight is when Krampus is going to eat the children and this only happens once a year, so nobody ever really see's Krampus or what he looks like the rest of the year. Meanwhile back in Vienna Renard pays a visit to Adalind and finds out she is being watched by hidden camera's, so Renard leaves a note for Adalind to meet her at a cafe. Back to Krampus, Bud turns up at Monroe's place as well, but he doesn't believe Krampus is real until they tell him he is real and Bud actually tells them where the tallest tree is. They rescue the kids and arrest Krampus in human form and hand him over to the Wesen Council and let them deal with it. With a few hiccups Monroe and Rosalee celebrate a wonderful Christmas together. Fantastic Episode. I Enjoyed It.moreless

    Well this was most definitely a seasonal episode, kind of like Bad Santa only worse. The mythology behind the Krampus was somewhat accurate and he is not a Wessen. But he is bad, especially if you are a naughty little boy or girl. But in the end Nick and gang figure this creature out and take care of him although leaving his ultimate fate up to the Wessen council. On the side we had an interesting story involving Rosalee, Monroe, and Christmas which turned out nicely. And there is also the continuing story of Adalind and Renard which is part of the big story arc and interesting in its' own right. Now it's time for a winter break.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Tavitian pulls up to the accident site, the police car behind the wrecked car extends well beyond the wrecked car, blocking the road. But in the overhead shots, the police car is further back, almost entirely behind the wrecked car.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Tavitian: So you are the Royal bastard.
      Renard: Well, I am Royal. I can be a bastard.
      Tavitian: I can be, too.

    • Monroe: You know, I've got a lot going on today. Gotta get those jobs out before Christmas, because you know, clock repairs. Need to be timely.
      Rosalee: Is that a clock joke?
      Monroe: Just a very tiny one. Sorry. I heard it second-hand.
      Rosalee: Yikes. I'm leaving before you can think of anymore.

    • Wu: Don't worry, I'm not going to give you crap about arresting Santa Claus in front of a bunch of children. But I wouldn't expect anything under the tree this year.

    • Hank: You picking anything up?
      Monroe: I got nothing. Except the smell of fear. On Bud.
      Bud: Hey! I want to save those kids just as much as the rest of you. I'm just not entirely comfortable with the idea that we might encounter the most hideous beast nobody's ever seen.
