Grimm s06e05 Episode Script

The Seven Year Itch

1 Previously on "Grimm" There are patterns on this cloth.
- I've seen them before.
- I can see it.
Can you draw what you're seeing? I've never seen anything like this.
[gunshot.]
You chose the wrong side, Sean.
- No, you're dead.
- Does that really matter? - Get the hell out of here.
- I'm not gonna make it that easy for you.
You have a baby in you.
- More than one.
- What? Oh, God.
[dramatic music.]
[rustling.]
[slurping.]
Ugh, we're gonna do this again.
No, this isn't good for either of us.
Helen, could you listen? Good boy.
[tense music.]
[ominous music.]
[grunting.]
[gunshot.]
[gasps.]
[sighs.]
[exhaling shakily.]
[suspenseful music.]
[footsteps approaching, heavy breathing.]
[gasps.]
- I'm sorry, I didn't mean to scare you.
- It's okay.
I just I don't know, I, um I thought I heard something.
It's probably nothing.
Must be strange being back here after everything that happened.
It's a lot better than when I came back and found - you and Kelly gone.
- You know I never would have I know.
Let's go back to bed.
I'm trying to tell you you made the right choice.
No, I'm sorry, I can't do that.
Ah! I Helen, there's a weird guy.
Let me call you back.
Are you okay? Hungry.
Need something to eat.
Look, I don't have any food.
Uh, I'm gonna call 911 for you.
- 'Cause you look really bad.
- [phone beeps.]
- [phone line trilling.]
- 911, what's your emergency? Hi, look, I'm in Stillman Park right now and there's this guy on the ground and he's filthy.
Um, I have no idea who he is, but you need to send somebody here because I think he's, like, - starving to death.
- Are you near him? Yes, I'm right by him.
Uh, yeah, yeah, he's not here.
Um, I'm sorry.
I'm not sure what happened.
[grunts.]
[thud.]
[pained grunts.]
[tense music.]
[light music.]
[sighs.]
You gonna follow me everywhere? I like your new place, Sean.
But I'm not following you.
I'm haunting you.
There is a difference.
Well, it's annoying in either case.
You know, it's been a long time since I've seen her.
- Seen who? - Diana.
I was there when she was born.
It's quite an experience.
I'm not really used to bringing life into the world.
Is that what this is about? You want some thanks for being there when I couldn't be? Well, thank you, really.
Thank you for being there.
I really appreciate everything that you've done for Diana and me.
It's too bad you didn't think of that before, you know, that betrayal thing.
[laughs.]
Now is this gonna be a regular treat with you? You're gonna keep showing up here and making me feel sorry? Because I don't do sorry very well.
- Do I look shocked? - Look, we had some good times together and I really appreciate everything that you've done for all of us.
For Diana, for Adalind, and me.
Did I leave anybody out? Because I would really like to be done with this, - once and for all.
- I'm not sure I can commit to a half-assed haunting, Sean.
I mean, you wouldn't respect me if I were to take a cheap thank you and drifted off into whatever awaits me.
I think we have some real issues to work through.
I'm tired.
I just wanna get some sleep.
I'd love it if you got the hell out of my room.
Well, there's the problem.
Am I in your room or am I just in your mind? Now that's awesome.
Am I even here? Okay, fine.
You take the bedroom.
[panting.]
Now we're getting somewhere.
I've heard the only way to battle your demons is to take a trip to their hell.
- [gunshot.]
- [grunts.]
[gunshots.]
[grunts.]
[gunshots.]
[grunts.]
[water splashing.]
[sighs.]
[eerie music.]
We have one strong heartbeat, that's for sure.
- How's it look? - It's healthy? Yes, exactly as it should at this point in the pregnancy.
- Just the one? - One's not enough? No, no.
One's great.
- It's just, we thought - We thought - maybe there was more.
- Yeah.
[hearts beating.]
- What's wrong? - I think Well, there is a second heartbeat.
Really? Yeah, I guess you know your body pretty well.
Congratulations.
- You're gonna have - Twins.
- It's just twins.
- Well, maybe not.
Well, this is a surprise.
There is a third heartbeat.
- Three? - Mm-hmm.
[sighs.]
I love you and we can do this.
I'm pretty sure I was dead.
Well, you were there.
You should know.
I was shot.
Look, I know you think you were shot, but maybe it was something else.
I felt the bullets, Hank.
I I went down.
I knew I was dying.
I could feel it.
[sighs.]
And then I wasn't.
I mean, you saw what happened with Eve.
I can't explain anything that's been going on.
I keep thinking I need to be carrying that stick.
- Are you? - No.
But it's like you get used to carrying your weapon, and when you don't have it, you feel like you're missing - a piece of yourself.
- I know, but we have a license for that.
I try to stop thinking about it, but it's not working out so well.
Where is it? I put it back in the tunnel.
Don't you think you should put it someplace a little further out? No, I wanna understand what happened.
I wanna know where it came from.
I wanna know why the men who found it buried it and I wanna know what's written on that cloth that's wrapped around it.
Sometimes we can want too much.
And what if we found out and wish we hadn't? Maybe that's why it's buried.
Then why didn't they just destroy it? Maybe they tried and they couldn't.
We are dealing with stuff that may not have an explanation we can understand.
[cell phone rings.]
It's Wu.
Where are we supposed to be? Stillman Square Park.
We're 15 away.
I do not like dead bodies on an empty stomach.
Okay, I'm ready.
- Is Daddy coming down? - I don't know.
He's in the bedroom.
I think he was having bad dreams last night.
Oh.
Well, that's too bad.
Hey.
How long you been here? About 15 minutes.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I overslept.
Did everything go okay last night? Oh, yeah.
No, we had a great time, didn't we? Uh-huh.
Okay, well, we'll call you later.
- Okay.
- I like the new place.
- Thanks.
- Me too.
Hey, Adalind? Yeah? Have you ever dealt with a What? Never mind.
Hey, call me later.
Okay.
[door closes.]
[indistinct radio chatter.]
So I'm guessing no ID.
I think what you see is what you get.
We did a search for clothes, but besides a kid's dirty t-shirt, a pile of rags and a catcher's mitt Which I suppose could have covered his essentials This is it.
We also didn't find a wallet or keys - or a cell phone.
- Who found him? Jogger found him around 6:45.
Thought he was asleep on the first lap, At mile three, he stopped for a closer look and had a mild freak out when he realized this guy was done.
Where's this pile of rags? Over here.
Stuffed under some bushes, but I think they've been here for quite a while.
Smell good, too.
- You want me to get them out? - No, leave it for CSU just in case.
And run the vic's prints.
Check to see if there were any reports of a naked man in a park some time last night.
Uh, this is Portland.
I might have to narrow that down.
So he either came to the park fully clothed and was robbed of everything he had, or he came to the park with no clothes and was killed for no personal gain.
Might have just been some sadistic sexual encounter gone bad.
- Really? - No.
It's Wesen.
[beeping.]
He may not have a future, but he's got just enough of a past.
Jeremy Tauberg.
Arrested for disorderly conduct last year and a DUI three years ago.
Local address in the South West.
Let's take it from that address.
[woman screaming.]
- [whimpering.]
- Please help me, he fell in.
I can't get him out.
He was just playing in the dirt.
- [whimpering.]
- His foot's stuck on something.
It's gotta be a root.
- [grunting.]
- Oh, my God.
[screams.]
- Oh, my God! - [crying.]
Definitely been down there a while.
With that many roots, I'd say at least a couple years.
Evidence of clothing, pretty rotted.
I'll know more when I get the post-mortem interval.
Pieces of that clothing on the corpse look a lot like the one stuffed in the bushes.
That's exactly what I was thinking.
So a body gets buried underground, it starts to rot, it gets smaller.
Leaving a hole where the body was, right? - Yeah.
- Kid starts playing, ground collapses, kid falls in the hole.
- I'm following.
- Doesn't this hole seem a little big for one body? Oh, could be a big body.
Yeah, but the mother said the kid was playing in the dirt.
I don't see any dirt in this park.
- It's all grass.
- All right, so if everything is grass, how did the dirt get dug up before the kid fell in? Somebody did some digging before the kid started playing.
But why would somebody start digging right where a body was buried, unless they knew the body - was buried right here? - So it's either a complete coincidence or the killer was the digger.
Hey, we believe in a lot of things but not coincidence.
You see any signs of a pick or a shovel? I do not.
But I do see some dirt from the hole scattered in the direction of our other body.
There was more than one body in that hole.
And one of the bodies got out.
Wearing some nasty-ass clothes.
Which is why Mr.
Tauberg is lying naked and dead in the park.
I'm so glad this world makes sense.
- More coffee? - Yeah.
And more steak.
[chuckles.]
Seriously? And this time make it rare.
When was the last time you ate? Been a while.
That's the thing.
You can never tell.
They always look bigger than they are.
But this last one she didn't last anywhere near as long as I thought she would.
She was pretty.
That's why.
I was distracted by her face.
[laughs.]
Won't make that mistake again.
Oh.
And why don't you bring me a couple Bloody Marys? 'Cause I feel like it is gonna be a beautiful day.
[phone line trilling.]
- Steiger.
- It's Renard.
- Been a long time, Sean.
- Yeah, I know.
Look, I need to see you.
- When? - Tonight.
- I can't wait.
- [phone beeps.]
Tauberg, wearing a sport coat with no tie, had drinks at Flannigan's with a few friends after work.
Walked home about 11:00.
Co-workers said he always walked through the park 'cause he lived on the other side.
His address is on Sycamore.
A few blocks on the other side.
So was Tauberg a target because he was convenient or because of his clothes? - Tauberg was 6'1, 170.
- That narrows it down a little.
Got a hit on Tauberg's credit card.
Used this morning at Sunnyside Diner.
It's about a mile from the park.
You wanna check it out? Or you want me to - Can you describe him? - Uh, normal looking, I guess.
Brown hair.
Maybe six foot tall.
Not heavy.
Just, you know, regular.
Except for what he said.
- That was not regular.
- What did he say? I don't remember his exact words, but something like whatever he ate was bigger than he thought it was.
But then he said that "she" wasn't as big as he thought "she" was.
And something about her having a pretty face and he was distracted by that.
I don't know, I mean, the way it sounded was like he had just chowed down on some babe.
- It just weirded me out a little.
- [cell phone rings.]
Do you think you can give a description - to a police sketch artist? - Sure.
What'd he do, anyway? He's a person of interest in a murder investigation.
Burkhardt.
Yeah.
We can be there in 20 minutes.
Uh, wait.
Is the vic female? Thank you.
M.
E.
is ready.
The vic was female.
Had a feeling.
Victim was mid-30s.
Despite skin covering much of the corpse, there was very little decompositional fluid.
An unembalmed adult normally takes anywhere from eight to twelve years to skeletonize.
After seven, there should be far less skin present than there is here.
Any idea how long she was buried? Uh, longer than five years.
Maybe more.
We'll know more when we get the bugs back.
But some of her skin was somehow preserved and hardened into a waxy shell.
I took subcutaneous samples and found traces of an enzyme - I've never seen before.
- Similar to anything? Digestive.
But that's not all.
See this cut? That was made either before she died or right after.
And there wasn't a trace of organ tissue left inside.
Her organs were removed.
Yeah, but there were no cut marks on the bones, which you'd get if someone was using a knife.
However, there are marks on the bones that are indicative of teeth.
Notice the indentations.
Pretty much all over the place.
Looks like someone gnawed on it.
They're all like that.
Every bone in her body.
- Mommy.
- What? Do you know Meisner? - How do you know that name? - Daddy said his name a lot of times last night.
- Why? - I don't know.
Sometimes he said it really loud like he was mad at him.
- Do you know him? - Meisner? Uh, yeah.
Or I did know him.
He died, honey.
Oh, that's sad.
What happened to him? He got into a very bad fight with some very bad men.
Was Daddy one of them? [sighs.]
Are you ready for lunch? I know Meisner.
Mm, well, you met him once a really long time ago.
But you were so small.
I don't think you'd remember that.
I do remember.
He was in a helicopter with me.
Oh, right.
That.
What do you remember about him? - He was nice.
- Yeah.
- He was nice.
- He wanted the King to fly.
I am the King! No! I don't think he did.
I wanna see Meisner again.
Uh, well, that will be a little difficult, 'cause like I said, he died.
I know.
But I'd like to see him anyway.
Oh.
And Eve is here.
What? Where? In the wall.
She doesn't feel good.
She was drawing, too.
Honey, I'm gonna go down there.
If Kelly makes any noises, you just let me know, okay? Okay.
Eve? Oh, my God! Eve! Can you hear me? Okay.
What are you doing down here? I gotta get you out of here.
You gotta get up.
You gotta stand up.
All right.
You're gonna have to go first.
Come on.
[grunts.]
Okay, I'm right behind you.
[grunts.]
You got it? Ohh.
Okay.
Okay, okay, okay.
I got you.
Right over here.
I got you.
Will you get me a glass of water? Okay, just lay back, lay back.
- Okay.
- [water running.]
Is she gonna live in my bed now? No, sweetie, She's just resting.
Is she gonna die? I hope not.
But I think she's got a fever.
I'm gonna go get her a washcloth, okay? Diana? Diana? [scoffs.]
[sighs.]
Diana? Diana? Oh, I really don't think it's a good idea for you to be down here.
[ominous music.]
Yeah, I think I got something.
- Eh, pretty close.
- [door opens.]
Nick, that better be you down there.
Yeah, it's me and Hank.
- We thought you would be here.
- We had a prenatal exam.
- Everything okay? - Okay, okay, and okay.
- What? Three? - Apparently, yes.
- Well, congratulations! - Thanks.
- Really happy for you guys.
- Oh, boy.
What are you guys looking for? - This.
- Ataktos Fuse.
Look at you, reading Greek.
I think there's a translation here.
- In Latin.
- Oh, let's find out what it means.
So what, does your victim look like that? One of them.
Uh-oh.
There more than one? Yeah, we think he's responsible for two very different crimes.
We just haven't been able to connect them.
Ataktos Fuse, or Bestia Festiva, loosely translated means "party animal.
" - Party animal? Really? - Yeah, that's what it says.
Yeah, right here.
"Ab ista Bestia Festiva Dionysus principium ducit.
" Which translates to "Your party animal was the inspiration for Dionysus.
" Good old Dionysus.
God of wine and orgies.
Wait, this can't be right.
It says the Ataktos Fuse is immortal.
Well, that's obviously a metaphor.
No, it says it resurrects from the earth for one day - every seven years.
- Seven years.
Sounds like he's in the ballpark for another victim.
And he only comes above ground for 24 hours? - According to this.
- If I was up for one day every seven years, I'd be a party animal.
Although in those 24 hours, it needs to find a food source to take underground and feed on.
And by food source, you mean Somebody big enough to sustain them underground.
So this guy might be looking for his next - plus-size stockpile.
- [cell phone vibrates.]
Wu just sent a facial composite of the guy from the diner.
So that's our Ataktos Fuse.
Wait a minute.
I've seen this face before.
- I think I know this guy.
- How could you know him if he's only above ground for one day every seven years? No, it was more recent than that.
Then it can't be the same guy.
No, I'm telling you, it's the same guy.
I've seen this face somewhere.
- Will you send me this sketch? - [cell phone rings.]
We have less than 24 hours to figure that out because if we don't find him tonight, he's gone another seven years.
Hey, Adalind.
Everything okay? Eve's here.
She's been living - in the tunnels.
- What? And she's in pretty bad shape.
I didn't know she was here.
Diana sensed her.
- Can you come home? - Yeah, I'll be there - as soon as I can.
- Thanks.
Eve has been living in the tunnels.
- For how long? - I don't know.
Adalind just found out.
I gotta get home and deal with this.
I'll drop you off and I'll head back to the precinct.
[pop music.]
Oh.
Did I order that? From the gentleman down the bar.
[chuckles.]
You know that guy? I don't think so.
Hey, what are you gonna do? Find out where my drink is.
I don't know what you think you're doing, but I'm going outside for a smoke, where if you have the nerve to show your ass, I'm gonna kick it from here to Houston.
Otherwise, you better be gone.
You got me? Loud and clear.
Uh, bartender.
If you please.
Hi.
Brought you a drink.
What are you trying to do now, pick me up? No, I just felt sorry for you since I'm picking up your girl and we'll be having a real good time and you're not.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
[sighs.]
Cheers.
[pop music.]
- Hey.
- [laughs.]
Thank you for the drink, but I think you should probably get out of here.
I don't think he was too happy about you buying me a drink.
Are you? Yeah.
I did just meet him.
[laughs.]
Then it shouldn't be too hard to forget him.
Bartender.
Round of drinks for everyone who thinks it's a great night to be alive! [cheering.]
Let's turn this music up, too.
- Get the party started, huh? - [cheering.]
We can rock all night Rock, rock we can rock all night Get your girls and your guys, we can rock - Okay, let's do this.
- Okay.
Rock, rock, rock we can rock all night Rock, rock we can rock all night Rock, rock we can rock What do you say you and me take a walk? - Sure.
- You can rock Oh, we'll be dancing We'll be dancing You are so much fun.
Gotta live for the moment.
Did you carve all that stuff in the tunnel? I'm not sure.
I think so.
I should have told you guys I was down there.
How long were you down there? Since Monroe and Rosalee's.
I don't even know how long that's been.
I wanted to leave, and then every time I tried, my body just couldn't move.
Diana knew you were down there.
[sighs.]
She knew you were drawing.
She was drawing the same thing.
A lot of them are the same.
I think it's time I told you I'm sorry for what I did to you.
[door opening.]
I told Nick you were here.
How are you feeling? Like I really shouldn't be here.
I don't think you're in any condition to go anywhere else right now.
- Who drew these? - Diana.
- I saw them, too.
- Where? In the tunnel.
[eerie music.]
You did this? Yeah, I remember.
My hands were all cut up.
They're not anymore.
Where's all this coming from? I don't know.
I think it's connected to what healed us.
Nick? - Yeah? - Hank's on the phone.
They've got another body.
It is really pretty here.
It's beautiful.
How long have you lived here? In Portland? A long time.
You know, years ago, all of this land was owned by a very distinguished young gentleman who recognized the need to preserve nature for future generations.
It's too bad we can't thank him.
I wonder what Portland was like back then.
Well, you would have been in the minority, for one thing.
In 1850, this was a frontier town.
There were five men to every woman.
[chuckles.]
I'd be happy with one good one.
[sighs.]
This is gonna make me crazy.
Maybe it's somebody you used to hunt with.
What? No.
How about one of Bud's friends? I think we kinda know all of Bud's friends.
What if it was a customer? - Yours or mine? - Either.
Maybe.
I don't know.
Ahh! Maybe his hair was different last time you saw him.
Right! Hair.
Mm, wrong.
Well, try glasses or a beard.
Yeah, glasses.
[gasps.]
No! Beard.
Oh, my God.
- I don't know this guy.
- What? You don't? - After all this? - No, I mean, I don't know him personally.
He's the guy from the park.
Monroe, do you know him or not? Yes! We both do! We've seen him a hundred times! - Who is it? - William Stillman.
- The statue? - He was one of Portland's earliest settlers.
The park is named after him.
Stillman Park.
Oh, my God.
That's where the bodies were found.
And the book said it was an immortal Wesen.
You're saying it's actually William Stillman.
You tell me.
- Oh, we gotta call Nick.
- Call him.
Same type of puncture wound.
But Donald Simpson here has his clothes.
So why kill him? Bartender said the victim was with a woman at the bar.
But she left with another guy who bought her a drink.
- [cell phone rings.]
- ID'd him off the composite.
It's our guy.
Monroe's FaceTiming me.
- Monroe.
- Nick, we know who it is.
That's why I'm FaceTiming you.
We have to show you.
It's William Stillman.
No, Monroe, that's the park.
No, it's William Stillman.
The guy.
I drew the beard on him.
It's the same guy! That's how I knew I had seen him.
The book said he was immortal, right? And if he really comes up out of the ground only once every seven years, and he comes up out of the park His park.
I mean, come on.
No wonder he donated the land.
That's where he's taking the girl.
- What girl? - The one he's gonna kill.
[knocking.]
[buzzer sounds, door unlocks.]
Things haven't been going so well for you.
- They haven't.
- I voted for you.
Why'd you quit? - [sighs.]
It wasn't me.
- Looked like you.
[laughs.]
You're telling me someone used Verfluchte Zwillingsschwester on you? That's not why I'm here.
I I need your help.
Well, I didn't think you came in to buy a guitar.
What's the problem? - I'm being haunted.
- Mm.
Anybody you know? - Yeah.
- Were you responsible - for the death? - In a way.
You wanna narrow that down a little? Look, I killed him to put him out of his misery.
And this is the thanks I get.
I just wanna know if it's real or if I'm losing my mind.
All right, all right, all right.
[sighs.]
This isn't gonna be simple.
What'd you bring me in order to find out? This was my father's.
And his father's before him.
[sighs.]
Hmm.
- You want this bad.
- Yeah.
How bad? All right.
Let's go find out if this ghost is real.
This way.
[ominous music.]
[grunting.]
Aspirateur d'Esprits.
A spirit vacuum.
If any spirits are attached to you, this will pull them out.
[sighs.]
What am I supposed to do? Take off your clothes and get in.
- Seriously? - You wanna find out if your haunting is real, don't you? If it's all in your head, nothing will happen.
[breathing deeply.]
What are you doing? I'm just taking it all in.
Smell that air.
Listen to those crickets.
Look at those stars.
Do you feel it? Do you feel it all? That's life.
So many people just miss living.
They don't appreciate what they've got.
Wow.
I mean, you're right.
We move too fast, don't we? I wanna kiss you.
Really? Sometimes it's okay to move fast.
Are you all right? I'm just so happy to be alive.
You know, I think we're gonna be spending a lot of time together.
I hope so.
[chuckles.]
I hear those crickets.
They sound so happy.
[grunts.]
[indistinct radio chatter.]
Let's start where the body was buried.
[grunting.]
Oh! Ah! Uh! Ahh! [roaring.]
[spits.]
You're the Grimm.
Yeah.
Thanks.
What's a girl gotta do to find the right guy in this town? - Ready? - Get it over with.
[machinery clacking.]
[electricity humming.]
Ah.
Ahh! Shouldn't be too long now.
[screams.]
[whirling.]
- [electricity crashes.]
- [screaming.]
Ahh, ahh! [sizzling.]
Ahh! Ah! Ah! No! No! Ah! No! [screams.]
- [explosion.]
- [screaming.]
So Portland's celebrated pioneer was a 200-year-old cicada Wesen.
Makes you wonder.
How many bodies are buried in this park.
Or not.
[eerie music.]
A mind is a terrible thing to lose.
