"No man chooses evil because it is evil;
he only mistakes it for happiness."
It's clear to me that Grimm is going to drag out every last moment of this finale series before giving us a hopefully satisfying conclusion. I guess that it was too much to ask that after six years of doling out the meta slower than molasses that the writers would change their style now.
The Son Also Rises, begins with an official meeting of the scoobies at the spice shop. They are still trying to figure out the glyphs Eve drew on the walls of the tunnel. The only thing they know right now is that something is coming but they have no idea what. It's been a long day and Nick wants to return home but Eve, having experienced first hand how awkward it is to share a space with your ex and their new partner declines to accompany Nick. Rosealee and Monroe offer to allow Eve to crash at their place but she decides to crash at the spice shop because Rosealee and Monroe need their space right now.
Finally, alone, Eve turns introspective and tries to get a handle on who she is now. Eve picks up the mirror and the face appears again and so she breaks the mirror. Eve then turns to grab a boom to sweep up the mess but the mirror reassembles itself. When Eve looks into the mirror a second time (why would you even do that), a hand comes through the mirror and begins choking her. Eve struggles but manages to woge and then bites the hand. The hand retaliates by throwing her into a bookcase, knocking her unconscious. Monroe and Rosalee find Eve the next day, lying on the ground unconscious next to the mirror.
Nick is with Hank and Wu, investing the murder of Dr. Deidre Hampton, when he gets the call about Eve. Nick tells the guys that Juliette is hurt and that he has to leave. That's right, he said Juliette. Damn it Grimm, stop with the love triangles. When Nick arrives at the hospital, Monroe and Rosalee give him the details of Eve's injury and Nick finally has the good sense to tell them about the monster he saw in the mirror. I particularly liked Monroe reading Nick the riot act a little bit about his failure to share information.
Monroe and Rosealee head home and the first thing they do is lock up the damn mirror, though they determine that the issue is probably Eve and not the mirror. Monroe is completely cute about not letting Rosealee touch the mirror. At the hospital, Nick settles down to begin his bedside vigil.
Now that Nick has gone off to sit at Eve's bedside, Wu and Hank must investigate the case on their own. They decide to see Sanji, the last person that Deidre spoke to on the phone. Sanji gives Wu and Hank, some song and dance about what he and Deidre spoke about but given that the call only lasted 30 seconds, the cops smell the b.s. in the air. When Hank and Wu discover that the fingerprints at the crime scene are from someone who's already dead, they become even more suspicious.
It turns out that Sanji works with degenerative tissue, Deidre with stem cells and together, they work with Victor Shelly and Julian Levy. That's right, the writers decided to do a Grimm version of Frankenstein. This is confirmed when Grimm's monster sees a missing poster with his face on it, partially woges and then freaks the hell out calling himself a monster. We all know that in the original, the monster wanted revenge against its creator, so it's no surprise that this monster does as well.
That night, Monroe has a dream about be awoken by Rosealee, who is now in labour. Of course, it's far to early but Rosealee points out that there's nothing normal about them. Monroe gives a sigh of relief after the first baby until Rosealee reminds him that she's having triplets. When Rosealee has given birth to three babies, Monroe thinks it's all over except Rosealee tells him that there's more. Rosealee keeps giving birth to babies and Monroe starts to beg her to stop. In the end, Rosealee wakes Monroe from his dream saying that he was screaming in his sleep. It seems that Monroe, despite keeping it all together for Rosealee, is scared out of his mind about becoming a father to multiple babies at once.
In this version of Frankenstein, Hank and Wu discover that a mortuary has been selling bodies that it was supposed to cremate. It seems that the mortician figured that since the deceased had no family to speak of and were criminals that no one would care what happened to their bodies. Yes, I am officially creeped the fuck out by that. Harold explains that a man paid one thousand dollars for each body and that he claimed the income on his taxes. Is that supposed to absolve this creepy ass dude? When the Hank agree to let him go, the creepy mortician assures Hank that he learned a lesson.
Feeling the pressure after Deidre's death, Sanji gets busy shredding his files. As he works Sanki and Dr. Levy discuss what to do with a video of their nefarious activities. When Dr. Levy leaves to clean up his own pile of evidence, Sanji is attacked from behind by the monster we saw earlier.
