Who Is the Enemy and Who Is Coming?
21 March 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

A group of people boards a streetcar and they dance "YMCA" on the boombox of a teenager. When the flash mob leaves the streetcar, the conductor finds the body of a young woman. Nick and Hank investigate the case and the coroner tells that the victim, the lawyer Serena Dunbrook, died of anaphylactic shock due to a large quantity of caused by a large quantity of bee venom. Nick interrogates the owner of the boombox, Doug, and he finds that Doug is a Mellifer. Nick and Hank follow Doug and his friend John to an abandoned facility where they meet a woman, but they are attacked by a swarm of bees and the suspects flee. Nick reads the journals of Marie in the trailer and summons Monroe and discovers that the bee queen and her swarm are enemies of Hexebiests. But who is his enemy and who is coming?

"Beeware" is another good episode of Grimm and the mystery intrigues. The plot is a combination of "The X-Files" and "Supernatural" and now Nick has a sort of conflictive situation, protecting the woman that tried to kill his beloved aunt. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Tome Cuidado" ("Be Careful")
