Grimm (NBC) Full Episode & Review - "Juliexenbiest!"

Season 5 Episode 7

"Eve of Destruction"

Nick and the gang are rocked by the return of "Juliette," plus, Monroe and Rosalee turn to the Wesen Council for answers about the rising violence.

After his Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) sighting, Nick (David Giuntoli) confronts Trubel (Jacqueline Toboni) for answers and she reveals Chavez knew Juliette was a Hexenbiest and wanted to turn her into a weapon. But Trubel adds she wasn't sure if Juliette survived what Hadrian's Wall had in store for her. To make it up to Nick, Trubel meets with Meisner in secret and gets him to agree to let Nick meet Juliette, but at a time and place of his choosing.

Meanwhile, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), Rosalee (Bree Turner), the captain (Sasha Roiz) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) interrogate Xavier, who reveals the Wesen gang had its sights set on Nick and Monroe. Xavier adds that any Wesen who doesn't join them in their mission will be killed. Hank and the captain bring Xavier to the precinct and throw him in a cell until he can be placed in protective custody, but their plan is foiled when Lucien, Black Claw's leader, sends a hitman to kill Xavier. The assassin poses as a drunk and gets himself thrown in jail alongside Xavier. He Woges and kills Xavier in plain sight, causing a cop to shoot him dead before Nick, Hank, Wu (Reggie Lee) and the captain can intervene.

Monroe and Rosalee bring the situation to the Wesen Council, and Alexander informs them that an organization called Black Claw is behind the uprising, but that he cannot discuss it any further. But soon after, a Wesen Council member reveals himself to be part of Black Claw and guns down the majority of the Council during a meeting. Alexander, the only member to get away, calls Rosalee and breaks the troubling news.

Nick finally comes face-to-face with Juliette at a restaurant, where she introduces herself as Eve. She dodges most of Nick's questions, but does admit to remembering everything. Suddenly, she gets up, Woges and kills a man telekinetically. The target's bodyguards quickly pull their guns, forcing Nick to get involved and put them down. By the time the cops arrive, Nick has handled the situation - and Juliette is gone. Meisner phones Nick and explains the meeting was a setup: Hadrian's Wall needed Nick's help to take out an important Black Claw organizer. The meeting was a test and Nick passed.
