Storyline

Nick investigates the death of popular Seattle private prep school music teacher, who was seemingly bitten to death by rats in his car. The popular crowd suggest the only feasible suspect is recently suspended outsider Roddy Geiger, a gifted violinist but son of ruffian junk yard keeper Ephram. Near the fatal car are found cages used by Roddy to keep his pet rodents. As Nick recognizes the knave as feral rat, Monroe tries to give 'fatherly' guidance. However when his father is falsely arrested and abused in jail, the boy snaps and sets a trap for the rich kids who constantly abuse and sometimes bully him. In his anonymous feline DJ mask, he lures them to an underground rave, where his biting army is ready for the kill. Written by KGF Vissers

So Far, the Best Episode
26 March 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

At the Von Hamelin Music Institute, music teacher Paul Lawson is directing a string quartet formed by Sarah Jennings, Carter Brimley, Trey Harrison and Marvin. After the practicing, Lawson enters in his car and is eaten alive by the rodents.

Nick and Hank investigate the case and the police find cages in the bushes tagged Geiger Pest Control. They seek out the students and they learn that the student Roddy Geiger was suspended a couple of days ago. Nick and Hank discover that Roddy is the popular DJ Retchid Kat that was in a rave at the same time. When the coroner finds fibers in the rat stomach, Nick and Hank decide to investigate the students.

"Danse Macabre" is so far the best episode of Grimm. Good story associated to an excellent soundtrack with Camille Saint-Saëns's Danse Macabre. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Melodia Macabra" ("Macabre Melody")
