While Nick and Monroe go on a treasure hunt abroad, Hadrian's Wall and the Portland police deal with a Black Claw threat at home
Thanks to Uncle Felix’s chest of grimm goodies, the gang has enough keys to start their search for the treasure that was hidden by the seven grimm knights during the Crusades. Nick and Co. have the general location (the Black Forest in Germany), but they need more than just that to go on since the area is expansive. While wandering around Germany treasure hunting, sightseeing, and throwing back boots sounds great, they don’t really have time since Black Claw is trying to take over the world. After staring at Monroe’s map of the area, they zone in on a possible location – an old Catholic church with the classic “X” marked beside it.
Monroe and Nick decide the two of them will travel there alone, and when Nick tells Adalind, she expresses concern that this will just lead to death and evil. Always the optimist, Nick brushes it off and reassures her he’ll be fine. In the event that those two missing keys are leaving out a crucial part of the map and the guys will therefore be led into grave danger, Adalind doesn’t want to miss her opportunity to share her feelings. She tells Nick she loves him, they kiss, and then they do the horizontal mambo, which has honestly been a long time coming. It’s all a little weird, though. Apparently Nick thinks so too, because as he’s lying in bed with her, he starts remembering all the crappy stuff she did to him when she was in evil Hexenbiest mode. Maybe this is his subconscious telling him to run for the hills.
While Monroe and Nick are getting fake passports and traveling overseas, Hadrian’s Wall and the Portland police are dealing with a major Black Claw issue at home. Remember that mystery guy that HW said was in town — the one that committed multiple acts of terror in cities abroad? Well, he’s officially in Portland and he’s planning something big. HW gives the Portland police his photo so that they can keep an eye out as well. Teamwork!

Thanks to HW’s super fancy technology, we know that the mystery man’s name is Marwan Hanano (Joshua Satwell). Marwan pays a visit to local Black Claw leader Lucien Petrovich to pick up a sniper rifle and silencer. I’m guessing he’s not planning on hitting the shooting range with this thing. His motives become clearer when he’s seen wandering around a stage being set up for a rally for Andrew Dixon (Michael Sheets). Yes, the mayoral candidate that Renard has been publicly supporting.
While Marwan is scouting out the location, two Portland officers spot him and recognize him from his photo. They call for backup, but one of the officers decides that following Marwan is a wonderful idea. He goes so far as to walk into a dark building alone to pursue him and ends up getting attacked. How did this guy even make it through the police academy?
