During a flash-mob on a bus, a lawyer is killed with a stunning overdose of bee venom, but it fits no geographical origin. Monroe and the Grim records help Nick work out it must be the work of a feral bee queen, the sworn enemy of Hexebiests like Adalind. Trailing an professor-beekeeper and the other twelve attendants of a convention, Nick and his partner Hank find them congregating and get attacked by an unnatural bee swarm. Written by KGF Vissers

Doug is wearing a shirt that has black and yellow lines on gray and white-ish base. His cell phone has a black-and-yellow shell. The queen is dressed all in black and yellow. All references to the colors of bees. See more »


The beekeeper says that it is a queen bee that lands on Grimm's hand when he is being questioned. But queen bees only leave their hives on two occasions: on their mating flights (when they get impregnated) and when a new queen takes some of the workers in a swarm to form a new hive. Neither case applies in this instance. See more »

14 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of the first three episodes, "BEEWARE" is clearly the better; providing more early X-Files type of mature mystery, blended with slight thrills, maybe even a chill, scripted and executed well.

More like an upscale SyFy (SciFi) Channel original, it's difficult to believe NBC-TV will stick with "GRIMM" to allow it to develop its audience.

So far, the Special Effects are smooth, crisp, sharp and clear, easily enhanced thanks to HiDef, blended with a Semi-Fairy Tale look and feel at varying points throughout each episode. No doubt, if NBC-TV commits to at least two years, this show will only get better...
