Synopsis: Rosalee is kidnapped by a group of Wesen children and Monroe races to find her. Nick, Adalind, and Kelly move into a new house. Sean gets surprising news.
It seems Nick has made the difficult decision to finally sell the house that he has shared with Juliet for over 6 years. Nick appears to be coping with Juliette’s death as best as can be as he bitter sweetly leaves the house and those memories behind.
For this week’s supernatural case, Grimm ventures into Peter Pan territory and tackles the story of the Lost Boys, weaving a new tale of lost Wesen children in search of a mother. Deep within the woods outside of Portland, a disheveled woman frantically flees from a group of young Wesen children who are calling her “mother”. When the woman falls and dies accidentally, the children are determined to find a new mother.
In true awkward fashion, Nick drives Juliet and Kelly to their new home, which happens to be inside an abandoned paint factory. What a way to up the charm factor. While Nick insists it’s extremely safe, even I think he’s being a bit paranoid. That’s no environment for a child to grow up in. Before the two can settle in to their new digs, Nick is called out to investigate the body of the young woman out in the woods.
Back at the station, one of Sean’s royal contacts pays him a visit to let him know that the king is dead and that his daughter, Diana, is safe. Apparently Viktor struck a deal with the resistance to get rid of the current king, leaving Viktor in charge. While Sean still cannot see Diana right now, he mulls over the news of the change in leadership.
One of the children, Lily, is clearly sick and two of her brothers, Peter and John, head into town to attempt to find medicine for her. After not having any luck stealing cough syrup from a local convenience store, the boys enter Rosalee’s spice shop instead, hoping to get lucky. When one of the boys attempts to steal some herbs from Rosalee, she catches him but she eventually lets him go with some herbs when he shares that his sister is sick and that he has neither money nor parents.
The kids later return to her spice shop after believing that Rosalee must care for them and would make a good mother. Unfortunately, all four kids don’t have much trouble abducting her. Peter, who is in charge, promises not to hurt Rosalee but will do so if necessary. Monroe, who was on the phone with Rosalee when she was taken, races to the shop in desperation and phones Nick for help. With Rosalee officially missing, Nick and Hank begin investigating, and using security cameras in the area they are able to tie Rosalee’s abduction with the cold case of the murdered woman Nick and Hank were called to investigate hours before. The three race to the woods and Monroe, using his Blutbad abilities, is able to pick up and track the deceased woman’s trail, hoping it may lead them to Rosalee.
Back out in the woods, Rosalee is forced to play “mother” to the kids, including telling them a bed time story. When the kids briefly dose off, Rosalee makes a break for it but inevitably falls into the children’s many pitted traps surrounding their isolated camp. When the kids awake and find Rosalee in their trap, they are none too pleased and change into their respective Wesen forms. To their utter surprise, Rosalee changes as well and discovers Lily is a Fuchsbau like her. Before the kids can respond, Monroe, Nick and Hank arrive, having successfully followed the trail. The kids are apprehended and Monroe and Rosalee joyfully reunite.
Back at the station, Rosalee attempts to soothe the mislead children, but the children, knowing they are being put back into the foster system, refuse to talk to her. Monroe insists she did everything she could but some things she cannot change.
Meanwhile, Adalind attempts to find some normalcy with her new situation. While out shopping for food and necessitites with Kelly, she runs into an old co-worker of hers, who is surprised to see her. Despite his surprise, he tells her that she should look into returning to her old job and that she would be welcomed back. Later that evening, Adalind asks Nick if he would sleep with her and Kelly in the same room, rather than be separated and forced to sleep on a small cot. This whole situation is incredibly awkward but Nick surprises her by agreeing to do so.
In the near future, the three “lost boys” are called before their new foster coordinator, who of course goes by a variation of “Hook”. Hook shows the boys that he himself is Wesen and orders the boys to change before him as well. To their surprise, Hook promises them that will have a new family, one where they can use their Wesen abilities and forms.
