"Everyone sees what you
appear to be, few experience
what you really are."
A woman goes to a fortune teller to connect with her dead spouse. Unfortunately for her, she ends up at Wesen fortune teller and Laslo of course woges in front of her, as proof that her spouse visited her. The woman of course because that she has made contact with her husband because she saw the woge and hands over a wad of cash, as Laslo pretends to be weakened by the transformation. The moment the woman leaves, a Maréchaussée enters and woges into a manticore, killing Laslo and his partner Ava. Back to his human self, the Manticore takes a picture of his victims.
Juliet talks with Henryetta about her desire to stop being a Hexenbiest. Henryetta tries briefly to talk to Juliet into embracing who she is now but Juliet is only concerned with becoming her true self once again. Henryetta asks Juliet to woge, so that she can see what kind of Wesen Juliet is but Juliet is unsure of how to change. Henryetta tells Juliet that she needs to learn to control her woge because Juliet now has access to a primal force of nature. After Juliet admits that she hasn't told Nick, because she is afraid (okay Gimm, I am going to need some sort of context for this thus far unexplainable fear), Henryetta tells Juliet that she was wise not to because Grimms are not known to be fond of Henenbiests, adding that Nick's natural instinct would be to take Juliet's head off. So Henryetta know this how exactly? Henryetta then takes a sample of Juliet's blood and mixes it with some herbs and potions, then advises Juliet that she will contact her when she has something to share with her.
Wu, Hank and Nick arrive at fortune tellers place, where Wu advises Nick that after learning that the victims had large chest wounds and scorpion venom in their system, he went to the trailer to investigate and now believes that they are dealing with a Manticore. Nick affirms that they are indeed dealing with a Manticore, after looking at the bodies of Ava and Laslo. They find the fortune tellers appointment book and decide to visit the last person who they saw.
At the station, Reneard checks his email and gets notification that Adalind, Vikitor and Marus Rispoli have landed.
Nick and Hank go to visit the the woman that the fortune tellers spoke to the night before. She reveals that Laslo channeled a spirit and changed in front of her. The woman is adamant that she communicated with her husband the night before and expresses shock that the couple was killed.
At the Beacon motel, the Manticore - Johnathon Wilde, looks at an image of his deadly work before sending it off via email. The image of the Kurlons and a payment for services rendered is authorized by the Wesen Council. Apparently, along with the images of the Kurlongs, Johnathon also asked for permission to kill Casey Darwell, who has a bounty on him for 20,000 Euros. Johnathon's request is granted.
Rosalie and Monroe are back from their honeymoon and of course, Monroe's first question is if he should call Nick to find out if something happened while they were gone. Why is he even curious about this given that he is a newlywed and just got back from an amazing trip? Can we have Rosalie and Monroe actually have something of a life not revolving around Nick and Wesen issues? After Rosalie snarks but ultimately gives the go ahead because she is curious as well, Monroe hunts down his phone.
Back at the station, Wu reports that the widow whom the Kurlons spoke to is not a Wesen. Umm dudh. If she was a Wesen she would have not been fooled by a woge. Hank and Nick say that the widow was convinced because she saw Laslo woge, leading Hank to surmise that the Manticore had to show up just after the widow left. The cops question if the Manticore was upset at being faked out because he would have recognized the Kurlons as fake fortune tellers. It's Nick who wonders if this could potentially be a Wesen council thing. When Wu asks what Nick is talking about, Hank explains that not everything is in the books. They are interrupted when Nick gets a call from Monroe. Nick immediately asks to stop by, saying that he needs Monroe's help. When Monroe tells Rosalie that Nick and Hank are coming over, she snarks that it didn't take long. Good for Rosalie but the snark makes me wonder if she is taking over Wu's former role of the giver of snark on Grimm?
Viktor and Adalind check into their hotel room and Adalind's comes compete with a wardrobe filled with clothing which Viktor calls reconciliation but makes it clear that he has his own bedroom. Viktor affirms that they did not come this far to return to home empty handed. Back in his room, Viktor opens the door to find Renard. Renard asks about his brother's killer and Viktor says that he has not given up. Renard then asks for Adalind and when Adalind enters the room, Viktor tells them that they need to discuss the future. Viktor says that he underestimated Renard and Renard quickly declares that he does not have his daughter. When Adalind says that Renard gave the child to Nick's mother, Renard replies that he gave the baby to the one person he thought would protect her. Viktor asks what the Resistance will say when they find out that Renard betrayed them and Renard affirms that the Resistance already knows and that he told them that he has no idea where is daughter is, or how to find her. Adalind moves to attack but Viktor hold her off, saying that they are going to keep this civil at first. Viktor makes it clear that neither he or Adalind is leaving without the baby. Viktor and Renard do the back and forth about the royal family and Viktor suggests that Renard think about his relationship with the family the way it is today because those who wanted Renard dead are dead.
Nick, Hank, and Wu, arrive at Rosalie and Monroe's and report that they are dealing with another Manticore. Monroe quips that Matinticores are just about impossible to kill. Rosalie suggests that the murder of Kurlons sounds like a hit from the Wesen council because the Kurlons were woging in front of people who are not Wesen. Rosalie and Monroe then bring up a Maréchaussée (Wesen bounty hunter) and suggest that Nick stay out of this, if it is indeed Wesen Council. Nick however believes that he cannot do so because he is a cop, so Rosalie offers to see what she can find out from the council.
Juliet is cooking dinner and she decides to practice telekinesis but has to stop suddenly when Nick arrives home. Juliet has to give Nick a ridiculous explanation for how she hurt head.
Casey is walking down the street, arguing with what appears to be a prostitute. To settle the argument, Casey woges and threatens the woman, who quickly agrees to do whatever he wants. When the woman walks off, Johnathon confronts Casey, woges and quickly kills him. Johnathon then takes a picture of his handy work.
