Grimm: Once We Were Gods

"But we were gods once...!"

This isn't the first time we've seen Egyptian mythology in Grimm, but it is the first time it has been extensively woven into the mythos. It seems there is a race of Anubis Wesen that were once worshipped as gods and immortalised in hieroglyphs.

Before we get to that, though, Woo is still in the asylum with his fate uncertain. Nick and Hank are still undecided about whether to tell him. by the time of his release at the end of the episode, it would seem that have blown their chance. I can't help but think that this decision will have consequences.

Adalind is experiencing her first few hours of motherhood, but there seems to be some confusion. Has she had twins? Or is the baby simply in more than one place? This is, obviously, no ordinary baby. And the resistance are on the trail.

Back to the main plot, we get first class Egyptian-style thriller, complete with a curse on the sarcophagus and, of course, a mummy, plus a skeptical scientist to boot. This is another quality installment in another quality season.
