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

The basis for this episode and the opening quote come from "The Queen Bee." See more »


Juliette tells Hank and Nick that a scout bee will return to the hive and signal others to follow, bringing the others with it back to the source of food. In fact, scouts are capable of giving "directions" well enough that the scout bee need never return to the food source for the other bees to find it. 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...
