A woman claims a very persistent, talking wolf drove her to the point of madness when she's questioned by Nick and Hank after committing a deadly crime. Meanwhile, Nick and Juliette wonder if getting his Grimm powers back is worth the sacrifice of a normal life; at the same time, Bud hopes Trubel can help with a wesen-related issue; threats against Monroe and Rosalee intensify; and Adalind's perilous trek to retrieve her daughter continues in Austria.
Detective Nick Burkhardt thought he was ready for the grim reality of working homicide in Portland, Oregon. That is, until he started to see things... things he couldn't quite explain. Like a gorgeous woman suddenly transforming into a hideous hag, or an average Joe turning into a vicious troll. Then, after a panicked visit from his only living relative, Nick discovers the truth about his visions: he's not like everyone else, he's a descendant of an elite group of hunters known as "Grimms" who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world.
So begins his new life journey - albeit a reluctant one at first - as he solves crimes with his partner who knows something about Nick has radically changed but can't quite put his finger on it. Along the way, Nick finds himself unexpectedly getting help on some of the more difficult cases from Monroe, a guy who seems normal at first but is soon revealed to be what you might call a "big bad wolf". Literally!
Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Well, those weren't stories, they were warnings.
