Grimm s02e10 Episode Script

The Hour of Death

Donna Reynolds? Yeah, I've known her for six years.
Please, you have to find her.
She's our only child.
She never would have been involved in anything like that.
- Last call from her cell was made at 7:27.
She called me yesterday.
I left before she did.
I don't know what time she left.
She would not just disappear.
No one reported seeing her after she left.
If I think of anything else, I'll call you.
Something's happened to her.
You have to find her.
Aah! Wake up.
You were dreaming.
Yeah.
What time did you get in last night? Uh, after 3:00.
We've got this missing girl and not a lot to go on.
I just Keep running it over and over in my head, trying to figure out if I'm missing something.
Maybe you should try to get some more sleep.
Not on this couch.
Okay, well, I made you some coffee.
It's in the kitchen.
I'm going to work.
- I'm sorry.
- Why? Because I'm trying not to be sick and tired of sleeping on this couch.
Okay.
Can we talk about this later? 'Cause I have to be in early.
Yeah.
Richard, calm down.
It's just one more day.
Trust me, he's bringing the money tomorrow.
I showed him the photos of her, and he was practically drooling.
So we have to feed her one more time.
It's no big deal.
I'll do it myself.
We're making a lot of money on this.
She's got to be in perfect shape.
I gotta call you back.
- Adrian Zayne? - Yeah? Detectives Burkhardt and Griffin, Portland police.
May we come in? Am I in some kind of trouble? No, sir.
Do you know her? I don't know.
Should I? Well, you work maintenance in the Dekum building downtown.
She works in the same building.
We're doing a routine check on everybody working in the building the day she disappeared.
She disappeared? What do you mean? Well, she went to work, left to go home, and hasn't been heard from since.
Now, according to the super, you were repairing an air conditioning unit on her floor.
When did you finish the repair? - Uh, I don't know.
I-I guess about 5:00? But if there's any way I can be helpful he's burning photos of Donna Reynolds.
Where is she? Nick, enough.
Is he a Wesen? Yeah.
They were photographs of my ex-girlfriend.
And why were you burning them? Because she's my ex.
Who took the photographs? - She did.
- What's her name? - Jennifer.
- Jennifer what? - Benson.
- Where does she live? I don't know.
We broke up.
That's why she's my ex.
Got a minute? Forensics has been all over his house, hasn't found any evidence tying him to Donna Reynolds.
What about his car? His car's been in the garage for a week.
He's been riding his motorcycle.
And the only thing they can tell from the ash in the fire is that it's photo paper.
You've got nothing to hold this guy.
Look, I know what I saw in his stove.
Well, unless you can introduce it as evidence, we have to let him go.
Otherwise, D.
A.
will throw it right back at us.
Maybe you're wrong this time, Nick.
Maybe it was his ex-girlfriend in the photo.
I mean, we were looking at photos of Donna Reynolds all the time.
Just because he's a Wesen doesn't mean he's guilty, right? He could've run from you because he knew you were a Grimm.
I don't know.
Maybe.
Get up.
Why, so you can hit me again? We're releasing you.
If I find out you had anything to do don't threaten me.
He's threatening me.
Just be quiet.
Get that down to the techs.
Give it to John and only John.
So let's review.
Who are you giving it to? - John.
- Anybody but John? - No, sergeant.
- But what do you need first? Detective Griffin's signature.
You're going to go far.
Oh, uh, Detective Griffin.
Can I can I get your signature on this? All yours, Nick.
Well, I hope you're telling the truth.
'Cause it's one thing to lie to a cop.
It's another to lie to someone like me.
Get him away from me! I didn't do anything.
He's threatening me.
He's threatening to kill me.
Just calm down.
You've been released.
You can leave.
If anything happens to me, he did it.
Okay.
Sir, let's go.
What was that all about? I told him it's one thing to lie to a cop and another to lie to me.
What the hell are you trying to do? We got a missing girl, Hank, and this guy knows more than he's telling.
If he's guilty and we push him, he could kill that girl, dump her body, and then we'd never find her.
He could do that anyway.
He knows I know.
So what do you want to do? Look, whatever I decide to do, I'm going to do it alone.
I don't want you getting tagged for this.
Her name is Adalind Schade.
I am the vet that she brought her cat to, and I got scratched, and anyway, that's not important.
But I found out that she's a lawyer, and she works at your firm.
Sorry, Ms.
Schade is no longer here.
I really need to talk to her.
She resigned two months ago and left no contact information.
I wish I could be of more help.
- Good luck.
- All right.
Thank you.
Hello? Juliette? Hi, it's, uh, Sean Renard.
Hi.
I was just wondering, is Nick there? No, not yet.
I'm not sure where he is.
Oh, okay.
Well, you know, um this is probably none of my business, but I'm a little concerned about him.
He, uh he's kind of been on edge recently.
Yeah, I know.
You know, sometimes it helps to just talk about these things.
What, has he has he said something to you? No, no, he no, he hasn't.
It's, uh you know, cops usually don't talk about these things.
They, um they kind of keep things inside until something happens.
Yeah, um, I don't know.
I guess, you know, things things really haven't been that easy.
You know, it's probably best we don't talk about this on the phone.
I could always, um, meet you tomorrow for coffee.
How about cafe Nell? Yeah, maybe that's a good idea.
- Does 2:30 work? - Sure, yeah.
Okay.
Yeah, great.
Well, uh, I'll see you there.
Yeah, I think I can find it.
I'm actually getting pretty familiar with these books.
Ah, here it is.
Serum exomologesis canaria.
It's specifically for canines.
It's close enough.
Will it work? Well, it is a "confess your sins" serum, so it's worth a shot, I guess.
But, you know, some of these recipes are, like, 600, 700 years old.
Looks like this one was developed by a priest.
Of course, right? Add a little of this to the local water supply, you'd have your confessional full every day of the week.
Think of the donations.
It's probably how they paid for notre dame, actually.
So how are you planning on getting it into him? Crossbow.
How long would it take to mix it? Uh, well, I think I have everything here.
Looks like it.
Let's get a couple of these empty vials, grab this stirrer, and fire up the burner.
If I'm lucky, I don't know, a half hour.
Nick, what have you done? Hank.
I didn't do this.
I just got here.
What's that for? Oh, it's a kind of truth serum I was going to use on him.
Monroe helped me mix it.
Call him.
I just left the shop.
I haven't even fired this thing yet.
Okay, but this doesn't look so good after what he said at the precinct.
What are those marks on him? Looks like he's been burned.
I think he's been branded.
That's the same symbol.
Did you call for backup? No.
Did you? You might want to get rid of that.
I sure hope you were guilty.
What are you doing here? I was just going to ask you the same thing.
We got a 911 call from your guy, confessed to everything, even where he had the girl.
Units are on their way to that location now.
How'd you get him to confess? We didn't.
We got here after.
After what? No wonder he confessed.
I'd be confessing to all kinds of things.
Let's get this area secured and get C.
S.
U.
out here.
Griffin.
No, Captain, Nick's with me.
We're at the suspect's house.
Hold on.
Let me put you on speaker.
We've got Donna Reynolds.
She appears to be all right.
Have you got the suspect in custody? Uh, sir, the suspect appears to have been tortured, and he's dead.
Nick and I just got on scene.
- Captain.
- Yeah? The press is here.
How do you want to handle it? Tell them this is an active crime scene, there will be a press conference later.
Meet me back at the precinct.
Donna, I'm Captain Renard.
We've notified your parents.
They're going to meet us back at the hospital.
Now we've got the guy who did this, okay? Everything's going to be all right, I promise.
Thank you.
Her name is Donna Reynolds.
I kidnapped her.
Sir, are you reporting a crime? Yes.
Sir, are you all right? It was me.
I took Donna Reynolds.
I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
You'll have to speak up, sir.
Donna Reynolds.
Do you want to report information regarding the Donna Reynolds case? You can find her You can find her at K.
G.
Storage.
Unit 210.
Please stop.
Please stop! That's it.
According to the 911 log, the call came in at 9:36 P.
M.
, the land line registered from Adrian Zayne, and lasted 49 seconds.
Whoever's torturing him never speaks, so all we have is Zayne's voice.
What time did you arrive at the suspect's house? Can I get you guys anything else? Uh, no.
Thanks, Ryan.
But, uh, stick around.
You might learn something.
Pull up the crime scene photos.
- Oh, God.
- Yep.
Just make sure you want to get into this line of work before you get into this line of work.
Anybody know what that symbol means? We're running it through the system right now but nothing so far.
Any theories who might have done this? Our best guess is, he knew someone who knew Zayne, knew what he was up to.
Or it could be a revenge killing, someone related to Donna Reynolds.
The press is going to take the vigilante angle and run with it.
How much you want to give them? I say give it all.
If somebody knows what this symbol means, maybe they'll come forward.
Hospital just called.
They're releasing Donna Reynolds in 20 minutes.
They're asking when you're going to make a statement.
On my way.
Push in on that symbol.
The kidnapping victim, Donna Reynolds, was rescued this evening at 9:47 by police officers from the third precinct after a 911 call.
She has been released from the hospital in good health and has been safely reunited with her family in seclusion.
The suspect, Adrian Zayne, has been confirmed as the kidnapper.
He was found murdered in his home this evening.
It appears that Mr.
Zayne was tortured before he gave his confession admitting to his guilt and confirming the location of Donna Reynolds.
Now, I cannot share with you she'll be here on Wednesday.
Do we really have to have her come and stay for three weeks? That's like 14 years with anyone else.
Are you going to tell my mother that? - Released to all media.
- Are you? If anyone has any information in regards to this symbol or the killing of Mr.
Zayne Bud! Please contact the Portland police bureau Bud, are you listening to me? Again, this is an active investigation, and so any information would be greatly appreciated.
I now turn over all of your questions to our esteemed Mayor, Sam Adams.
Mr.
Mayor.
Thank you, Captain.
And thank you to the Portland police bureau, for returning Donna Reynolds to her friends and family.
So how do you want to write this one up? You mean, how do we explain why we were there? Well You went to Zayne's house to shoot him with a crossbow.
I went there to make sure you weren't doing something like shoot him with a crossbow.
So if you got any suggestions here, I'm open.
That bell's not going to save you forever.
Monroe, I'm glad you called.
Nick, you gotta get over here right away.
I know what that symbol is.
Griffin.
Yeah, he's here.
He's on the other line.
Can I help you? Nick, it's a guy named Bud Wurstner.
Says it's an emergency.
He'll only talk to you.
I'm on my way.
Bud, what is it? Nick, oh, my God, oh, my God, did you see what was on TV? What am I saying? Of course you did.
It's coming from you guys.
The thing about the girl who was kidnapped and the guy who was killed who kidnapped her.
I mean, that was really awful, but there's even something worse.
Not that there's something worse than kidnapping a girl Bud, what is it? It's it's about the symbol.
All right, Bud.
Just take it easy.
I'm on it.
And I'll call you when I know something.
Oh, good, good, good.
That's all I needed to know.
Thanks, Nick.
Bud, what's going on in there? Uh, nothing, honey.
Everything's fine.
Unless it's the end of the world.
Oh boy, do we have trouble right here? Come on in.
You know what this symbol is? Heck, yeah, I know what that is.
I grew up having nightmares about that thing.
- Then what is it? - It's an ancient German "G.
" Or "geh," to be precise, from the old, old, old country.
- "G" for what? - Him.
- Me? - Yeah.
Grimm.
"G" ist fur Grimm.
It's how we learned the alphabet.
I mean, not a Grimm like you, obviously, but okay, look.
When I was a kid, my parents and grandparents used to tell stories, albtraume fur Wesen kinder.
They're cautionary tales passed down to Wesen children, warning them against the worst of the worst.
The Grimms with, like, no compassion or or conscience whatsoever.
I mean, these guys killed men, women, children, pets, you name it.
They were known as Endezeichen-Grimms.
Some of their stories are in this book.
What is this, some kind of Wesen fairy tale book? Hey, you got yours, we got ours.
And look.
This was their symbol, which they branded into everyone they killed and onto every house in every village that had any Wesen in it.
It's basically the symbol of the Wesen pogroms, and pretty much any Wesen kid with a connection to his past knows about the Sterbestunde, the hour of death.
You've never heard of it? - No.
- You're not going to like this.
I think it started after the fourth crusade.
Basically, death squads of Grimms would roam the countryside lopping off heads, gouging out eyes, cutting off limbs, testicles, and then marking their kills with the Sterbestunde brand.
- Did you say testicles? - I did say testicles.
So you're telling me that there's another Grimm in Portland? Well, if you're not doing it, then, yeah.
If this guy's another Grimm, wouldn't he know about Nick? I don't know.
If he did, maybe he wants to clean up Nick's territory.
Or he could be like a classic samurai, you know, moving from place to place, leaving Wesen death and destruction in his wake.
To be honest, I didn't even know there were any of these guys left.
I mean, they're like dinosaurs or relics of a bygone era.
I mean, clearly not bygone enough.
The irony is, he got a confession when we couldn't and saved this girl's life.
Yeah, well, that's the old quandary, isn't it? Do the ends justify the means? Well, I'm sure they did to Donna Reynolds.
Look, Nick, all I'm saying is, whatever you're planning to do with this guy or gal or whatever, just you should do it fast, before your reputation is tarnished by this "brand first and ask questions later" behavior.
Oui.
- Are you alone? - Yes.
What do you know about the Endezeichen? Not much, except they're pretty nasty.
Why? I think we have one here in Portland.
I didn't think they still existed.
Yeah, well, neither did I.
Did the family send it? I do not know.
See what you can find out.
Burkhardt.
When you saw Adrian Zayne dead, did it make you wish you'd gotten to him first? Who is this? Someone who is doing what you should have done.
Are you saying you killed Adrian Zayne? If it had been left to you, the girl would be dead.
A lot of people take credit for things they didn't do.
You brought a crossbow.
That gave me hope.
Maybe you're not a total failure as a Grimm after all.
We'll see what happens next time.
Sir, are you reporting a crime? Yes.
Sir, are you all right? It was me.
I took Donna Reynolds.
I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
You'll have to speak up, sir.
You can find her You can find her at K.
G.
Storage.
Unit 210.
Please stop.
Please stop! What's up? You're not going to believe what went viral in the middle of the night.
You can find her You can find her at K.
G.
Storage.
Unit 210.
Please stop.
Please stop! It got pulled an hour after it posted.
Yeah, but it's out there now, with a death of its own.
Somebody's not shy about their work.
You talk to Donna Reynolds yet? Going there now.
- He called me.
- Who? The guy.
The other Grimm.
On my cell phone, last night.
He said he was there.
He saw us at Adrian Zayne's.
What does he want? He thinks I'm not doing my job.
Then he does know who you are.
That's not so good.
We realize this is an awkward question, but we need to know where both of you were last night when Adrian Zayne made his 911 call.
Do you really think that one of us had something to do with that man's death? Honestly, sir, we don't, but we have to ask.
We were at St.
Stephen's church with friends, praying for a miracle.
And we got one.
Donna, we need to ask you a few questions about the night you were abducted.
What do you remember? It was about 7:30.
I was I was getting into the elevator when somebody came up behind me, grabbed me, put something over my mouth.
When I woke up, I was tied up in the back of a van, and it was moving.
Do you remember anything about the van? The make, color, anything? I never saw the outside.
When he saw that I was awake, he shoved that cloth in my face, and I passed out again.
Zayne was in the van next to you? Yes.
Do you remember seeing a driver or hearing another voice? I never saw or heard an What makes you so sure this is our van? It's the only paneled van that left the parking structure that night.
And it left just after she was taken.
At 7:40 P.
M.
Registered to Richard Tyler Berna.
Let's find it.
- Richard Berna.
- Yeah? Turn off the van, and step out of the vehicle.
What'd I do? You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
It's you.
You have the right to an attorney.
You killed him.
You killed him! You murdered him, and now you're going to kill me! Hi.
Hey.
So glad you could make it.
You want something to drink? Thank you.
Um, no, I'm okay.
Thank you.
So you wanted to talk about Nick.
Yeah, yeah.
And, uh well, and you.
Do you remember anything at all about the night you woke up? No.
Mm-mm.
I vaguely remember feeling this surge, kind of like waking up from a deep sleep or something.
Uh Look, being a Detective is very demanding, and I'm sure I'm not telling you anything you don't already know.
But, uh, lately, Nick has been pretty distracted.
Because of me? Well, he's deeply concerned about you.
And I just I just thought that perhaps I could reach out and, um, help you both, any way I can.
That's really sweet of you.
I really appreciate you taking the time.
It's just, um you can tell me.
I feel so bad saying this, but he's a complete stranger to me, and I'm not to him, and he knows everything about me, and I'm just starting over with you him.
Him.
Sorry, I'm just starting over with him.
What's happened to you is not your fault.
I actually really have to get going.
We have video surveillance that ties your van to the Dekum building at the time Donna Reynolds was kidnapped.
Berna, it's time to start talking.
We have your van.
You think I'm worried about that? The techs are going through it right now.
If they find so much as one hair from Donna Reynolds what's going to keep him from killing me? It's going to be easier for you if I want to talk to a lawyer.
Let's take a break.
He thinks you killed Zayne.
Hey, forensics needs to see you now.
What's up? They found something in the van.
What do we got? Well, quite a lot, actually.
Obviously these guys didn't expect to get caught.
We got several long hair strands that match the color of the kidnap victim, fingerprints galore, a half-empty bottle of chloroform, and the cloth used to apply it.
Now, I wanted you to see this before we moved it.
My guess is, it's the victim's purse, which they just never bothered to remove.
Open it up.
Am I handing you a slam dunk on a silver platter, or what? I'm going to go out on a limb and say we book him.
Hey, guys, tough break.
I thought you had him for sure.
- What are you talking about? - Richard Berna.
We do.
We got hair samples and the victim's purse in his van.
Then why'd you cut him loose? We didn't cut him loose.
Well, he walked out of here, so somebody did.
Get sert out to the suspect's house.
we found your suspect, but somebody else found him before us.
All right, call it in, and secure the area.
Got it.
- Same symbol.
- How'd he find this guy? A lot of people knew about this guy.
All cops.
We haven't even booked him yet.
Burkhardt.
You had him, just like you had the other one.
You let him get away.
We had evidence.
He was Wesen.
That's all the evidence you need.
- You're a Grimm.
- More than you'll ever be.
Was it him? - Yeah.
- He give up anything? He thinks he's doing what I should be doing.
We think somebody in the precinct's a Grimm? I don't know, but we better find out.
This thing's getting out of control.
Yeah, tell me about it.
- Um, Detective Burkhardt? - Kind of busy right now, Ryan.
There's someone here to see you, sir, a Mr.
Wurstner.
He says it's urgent.
Okay, bring him to my desk.
This won't be long.
I'll get the security footage.
Nick, Nick, I'm so glad you're back.
Bud, take it easy.
Uh, well, that's easy for you to say.
Or maybe not, I don't know.
But I just came back from the lodge, and everybody is really worked up after seeing what was on the Internet.
I-I told them it wasn't you.
They think it was me? No, no, nobody in their right mind would think that.
But nobody's in their right mind right now.
They made me come down here just to make sure that this guy who's doing this is not, like, some kind of, you know, cousin or anything.
Look, Bud.
I don't know who did this, but I'm going to find out.
Because, Nick, we trust you.
And nobody wants to stop trusting you after all the trust that they've placed in you.
And trust me, everyone is waiting to hear from me.
So just get this guy.
Fast, please.
The sooner, the better.
The kids won't leave our bedroom.
You need to see this.
Check this out.
Somebody opened the door and let him out.
Someone who knew where the camera was.
- So then we got nothing.
- Oh, no.
We got something you're not going to believe.
Watch the reflection in the door glass.
- Ryan? - Mm-hmm.
Oh! Oh, it's you.
Uh, you scared me there for a second, kid.
Did I forget something? Oh, jeez.
Hey, Franco.
You seen Ryan? - The intern? - Yeah.
Yeah, I saw him about five minutes ago.
He was trying to catch up with that guy you were just talking to.
- Who, Bud? - I guess so.
I don't know his name.
We need his address.
We have it in his personnel file.
What's going on? Did Ryan do something? Portland police.
Open up.
Ryan? You're not Ryan.
Who are you? I'm Detective Burkhardt, ma'am, with the Portland police.
Is your son here? - No.
Why? - Do you know where he is? What the hell you want to know for? Hey, where's he going? Look, your son might be involved in a crime, ma'am.
We need to know where he is.
Well, him and me don't get along so good, okay? Hey.
Hey, give that back.
He said he was moving out soon.
Said he had some important work to do.
He thought he was too good for this.
Said he hated who we were, as if he was any different.
Look, I don't know anything more.
Just give that back to me.
Hey, Nick.
You might want to come look at this.
Some real hero worship going on here, Nick.
We gotta find Bud.
Where are we going? Well, I hope I'm wrong, but he followed Bud out of the precinct.
And Bud's Wesen.
Ryan's the Grimm? Hank, I don't know what he is, but if he finds Bud, he's going to kill him.
I'm calling Bud's house, see if he's home.
Hey, this is Nick Burkhardt.
Is Bud there? Working late at the shop? That's all I needed.
Hey, what's what's going on? Hey, what's going on? What's going on? Oh, oh, no.
It's you.
No, what are you doing? What has to be done.
What? What do you mean? Oh, what is that? What is that? - He should have killed you.
- What? Who? The Grimm.
The Grimm? Oh, you mean Nick? No, no.
He's just a friend of mine.
He can't be a friend of yours! He can't? Well, well, just ask him.
I-I think it's working out okay.
No, no, a Grimm that doesn't kill Wesen is not a Grimm.
Look, look, I don't mean to argue with you, but you obviously, you know, have your own opinion, and I would be the last person in the world to try to all Wesen have to be killed.
Okay, okay, I have to I have to disagree with that.
Examples must be set.
Oh, no, no, no, no, I'm not a very good example.
There are many more examples better than an old Eisbiber like me.
Have you have you thought about talking this over with with Nick? No, he is not a real Grimm! I am.
He is a traitor to his kind.
Oh, God.
Oh, God.
Help! - Shut up! - No.
If you think I'm going to stop screaming while you're doing that, you're crazy.
Not that I mean to criticize.
Help! Help! Help, help! Somebody help me! Help me, somebody! - That's Bud.
- Help! Somebody, please! Help! Help, help! Stop! Oh, oh.
Oh, thank God.
What's wrong with you? You should be helping me, not stopping me.
I'm placing you under arrest.
You're not a Grimm.
You don't know what it means.
Put your hands behind your head.
I looked up to you.
I got close to you, I studied you.
I thought one day we would work together.
You killed two people.
Adrian Zayne was a shackle.
You should have killed him, but you let him go.
That's when I knew what I had to do.
Then you're not a Grimm.
I am, and I am I am better than you.
I am better than you will ever be.
I am doing what you should be doing.
I saved Donna Reynolds! I'm cleaning up your mess! No, no, no, no.
I'm not this.
I-I'm not what you see.
I'm a Grimm.
- No, you're not, Ryan.
- I am, I am.
All Wesen must die.
Kill me.
- Don't do this.
- Kill me.
Kill me.
Kill me.
That's not going to happen, Ryan.
Please.
Next time we hire an intern, I'm going to suggest they do a better psych evaluation.
Hey, I-I just gotta thank you both for saving my life.
Another couple of seconds, and I shudder to think what I would have looked like.
Call your wife, Bud.
She's worried about you.
Yeah, yeah.
You're right, right.
I'm sorry.
I-I-I just had to do that.
So is Ryan a Grimm? Not even close.
What is he? Whatever he is, it's not what he wants to be.
- Hi.
- Hi.
