#Grimm starts in Germany and Felix answers the phone at his antique shop. The woman caller says she found an old book he should look at. She asks if he can come to Prague. He says he’ll be there at noon. In Prague, Felix meets her and she says the owner died recently.
They go to the attic and she says the chest is 200 years old. She shows him books hidden under garments. They look like Grimm books. She asks what he thinks. He says he must take him back to his shop. She says of course.
In Portland, Hank, Wu, Monroe and Rosalee come to Nick’s new house. Rosalee has a house warming basket. Monroe calls it steampunk post-apocalyptic chic. Nick opens the door and says to pull the cars in. Adalind greets them to the “fome” which she says is fortress and home.
Monroe asks if they have a turret. Rosalee has a basket for her and Wu says he hasn’t met Kelly. They go see the baby and Hank opens the wine. Nick takes Monroe to the roof to check out the view. He asks Nick how it’s going with Adalind and he says she’s great.
Nick says who would think she’d be such a wonderful mother. Monroe asks how she feels about him and he says he doesn’t know, they don’t talk about it. Nick admits he’s not sure how he’s supposed to feel. He says he hated her for a long time and now they have a family and it’s strange and normal.
Monroe says Adalind is a completely different person as far as he can see. Nick says Eve is too. Monroe wonders if Eve remembers everything. Nick says she talks about Juliette like she’s another person. Monroe says this is weird that he slept with both of them when they were each other.
The woman in Prague is approached by men at the house and they demand the books. She says they are all gone to Germany and says let me go. They woge and attack her as she screams. In Germany, Felix pulls up floorboards and pulls out a crossbow. He pulls out a phone book and calls Monroe.
It’s Monroe’s uncle! He says he can’t think in German this late. Felix says his mom told him he has a Grimm friend. He says he has something his friend will want. He says look at the photos, don’t forward then delete when you’re done. He emailed them.
Monroe tells her what his uncle said about Nick. She says that’s great. She asks about the photos and insists they look at them now. He opens his email on his phone. They see Grimm book photos. They wonder where he got it. She says call Nick.
Next day, Monroe pulls out some old photo albums and shows her his German family. Nick shows up and he shows him pics of his Uncle Felix. He tells him to come look at the pics. Monroe says some of these are Wesen he’s never even heard of.
Monroe says most people don’t talk about relationships with Grimms, particularly in the old country. Monroe says it looks amazing and Rosalee says after all he lost, this is a big deal. The men from Black Claw smash up Felix’s shop as the phone rings.
Monroe calls and the guy answers and offers to leave a message. They keep smashing the shop. A newspaper headline mentions the dead estate agent they just killed. Hank looks at some more Black Claw wanted photos and Nick says at least they have one resource.
He asks Hank how much a Grimm book is worse and tells him about Monroe’s uncle. He says Monroe’s mother told the uncle about him. Hank says just make sure the guy didn’t kill a Grimm to get the books. Eve levitates off the floor doing magic pushups.
Trubel comes to see her. She says they need to set some things straight. She tells her she wasn’t trying to kill her at Nick’s house. Trubel asks how she feels about Nick, Adalind and the kid. Eve says Juliette is dead. Trubel says she knows but would Eve hurt them.
Eve says she would not and owes Juliette nothing. Trubel says she does because Juliette helped her. Eve says J would have killed her too. The Portland Mayor’s race is heating up and Renard sits in on the session about Gallagher, the opponent.
He says you can make him look dirty really easily. Renard says he found ties to Gallagher doing dirty stuff but it was covered up due to influence. Rachel says it will come from the press not them when their candidate hesitates.
Rosalee wonders why Felix hasn’t called back. Felix is there at their house and stuns them. He says there is no time – and says call the Grimm now. He says he had to leave Leipzig in a hurry. He says call him right now. Monroe does.
Nick asks Adalind if she’s okay and she says it would have been her mom’s birthday and she’s trying not to think about. She says sorry and he says it’s okay. She says they don’t even know each other’s birthday – but turns out he does know hers.
He tells her his then takes the call. Monroe says his uncle is there and needs to see him right now. Monroe tells him he brought one of the books and Nick says he’s on the way. Trubel and Meisner look at the story about the dead estate agent and the attack at the shop.
Eve is there too and they wonder what Black Claw is looking for. Nick calls Trubel for backup. Felix says that book is from around 1390. Nick is there and Monroe lets him in with Trubel alongside. Felix starts to freak and Felix asks why she’s there. He woges and snarls and Trubel starts to go for him but Nick hold her back.
Monroe tells them to calm down and Felix backs down and Trubel apologizes. He says he is too. Nick asks to see the book. He tells Nick not to touch it with his bare hands and he says there are 20 books. Trubel is stunned. He says he brought them with him.
Nick says this was a Grimm book then asks if he killed him. Felix says they came from an old man in Prague who died of natural causes and he was brought in to assess the books. He says they were hidden in the attic of the house.
He says it’s a miracle they exist and he probably should have destroyed them but they are too rare. He says he can’t take the written word from the world when his life is about books. He offers the books for $100k and Trubel is stunned.
He says keep that book and I’ll get back to you in a day. He says he has to go on the run and it’s the best he can do. Nick says he can’t get that money that fast. They worry that they’ll be destroyed if Black Claw gets them. Trubel says she read this and says HW was alerted.
Monroe says maybe HW can pay the price. Nick says they need to take the book to Meisner. Rosalee agrees to research Josef, the guy who owned the books. Monroe goes with Trubel and Nick to HW and he freaks out. Trubel introduces Eve to Monroe.
Monroe says she looks good for someone they thought was dead and gone. He thanks her and she says he owes her nothing. She asks to see the book. He sets it down gently. Meisner says he’s seen a few Grimm books and Monroe says this is even more amazing.
Eve says this would help replace what was lost when the trailer was burned. Monroe says a lot of irreplaceable history was lost and he glares at her since she did it. Eve says Black Claw’s mission is to destroy all things Grimm. Meisner says he’ll try to get the money but isn’t sure.
Felix gets a text and then takes the call. He gives a shipment number and is told where to pick it up. He makes a note and is told after 4 pm. He checks his watch. Monroe tells Rosalee she looks like Juliette but there’s nothing connected to her with Eve.
She says she thinks maybe Eve has no conscience. He agrees. They find a reference to Josef and Monroe makes a call to Nick. He says they have 10 hours and says they found good stuff on Josef. She says his ancestors go back to the crusades and one was a Knights Templar.
Monroe says they can’t let the books get away. Rosalee says maybe they can all chip in enough to make this happen. Hank says they have a body and Monroe says he’ll try to stall for time. Wu says the victim is a 60 year old man and died inside his hotel room. The room is torn up.
It’s Felix. Nick says they must know that he has the books. The hotel room was tossed. Monroe reads to Rosalee about Josef and the Constantinople siege. They agree this sounds a lot like what’s going on. Nick calls Monroe to break the bad news to him.
He tells him his uncle was murdered and he needs his help. He says it looks like Wesen and it’s brutal. Monroe is upset but agrees to come down. Rosalee hugs him and says she’s sorry. Monroe bawls when he sees his uncle’s body. He says he has to call his mom.
Nick says it’s okay and says he’s sorry this happened. Nick says his uncle didn’t have a rental car – he came by cab and didn’t come to the hotel with the books. Monroe says he fought back and Wu encourages him.
Monroe says the guy is wounded since Felix attacked him. Hank says the wounded guy went out the window and says they’ll get good prints. Monroe says they have to find the bastard. A phone rings and they find it under the bed.
Nick gets it and answers. A man speaks German and Monroe answers him. Monroe says he went to Felix’s shop and found out it was trashed. Nick tells Wu to check every call that came to that phone. The wounded Black Claw guy refuses to go to the hospital.
Nick says they found three blood types so that means two attackers. Wu says the phone got partially damaged. They wonder if the same guys that killed the woman came there. He says that he called the shop late and some guy answers.
Nick says they need to talk to HW. Hank and Wu check hospitals. An ambulance pulls up to help the men in the car. The EMT says he has to call in the dog attack to the police. The men says they don’t know what kind of dogs they were. He woges and kills the EMT.
Monroe is impressed with HW’s Wesen database. Eve says they found the two that came to Portland after Felix. Nick gets a call from Hank who tells him about the dead paramedics. Nick says their names are Oskar and Kristjian.
Trubel finds their entrance flight and Eve says see if they rented a car. Nick gets another call – this time it’s Wu who says the last call was from a cargo company and there’s a shipment coming soon. He says it’s at an airport cargo facility.
Nick says the books were shipped and they think the bad guys stole the shipping order and are going to go steal them. Meisner tells Trubel she can’t go and says they won’t risk her over some books. Nicka dn Monroe find the bad guys’ rental car at the shipping company.
They head inside. Oskar and Kristjian are looking through the warehouse. Nick finds a dead security guard. They hear a noise and then the Black Claw guys find the crate. They try to bust it open and then Monroe is there and says you killed my uncle. He woges and says you shouldn’t have done that.
They woge too. The brawl begins. Nick is there and fights one while Monroe deals with the other. Monroe slaughters them both then unwoges and spits out a chunk of flesh. He says his uncle was a good man. Nick says they need to get the trunk out of here. They take it and go.
Monroe picks the lock carefully. They gently remove the books. Hank and Trubel are there too and then Monroe spots a loose board in the bottom of the trunk. Trubel says there’s more stuff. There are weapons and Hank says it looks like they got the trailer back.
They all check out the gear and the books. Monroe says the lock is larger than it should be. Rosalee wonders why they would kill stuff that has value only to a Grimm. Hank spots a family tree book and they see it’s following just a few people.
Nick points out Josef’s name and they flip to the end and find him there. Wu says they’re all Grimms. They look up Nick’s family – Kessler – his mother’s maiden name. His name is in the book. Trubel wonders if she’s in there too.
Hank says this book would be dangerous in the wrong hands. Monroe tinkers with the lock and finds a secret compartment. He finds a tiny little packet. His mouth drops open – he tells Nick to come see. It’s another key. Rosalee is shocked.
Nick says to go get the other keys and Rosalee runs to get them. She pulls up the carpet and finds them. She brings them down and they make the imprints. They are still missing two keys but they think they know where it is.
Monroe says it’s in the Black Forest. He says this terrain is a good match for the modern map. He points to a location. Nick says they can figure out what they buried there. Wu says they need the x to mark the spot. Monroe says they’ve got it. Nick says they have to go there.
