While Nick and Hank investigate the murder of an accountant (who is a Lamb creature named Seelengut) and who is also embezzling from his church, but they realize that there is a pattern with a slew of similar cases that revolve around embezzlement of churches and a shady Reverend (that is a Blutbad). The funny bit is that the Blutbad is a Reverend that is the leader of a church filled with Seelengut. So they turn to Monroe for some guidance and undercover work. Monroe starts to fall for the Reverend’s spiel.
Kristina Anapau (Maurella from True Blood) portrays a church secretary who is embroiled in a love affair with the Reverend and in cahoots with him, but then she finds out that the love of her life is just a Blutbad in Seelnegut clothing and turns his flock against him.Who knew sheep could be so deadly.
While this is happening, the Nuckelavee gets closer and closer to Nick and those that he cares for, as he prepares to make his move against Nick, but Nick takes care of him and realizes that he is after the “key.”
Nick is also trying to rectify the current status of his relationship with his true love, Juliet. After speaking to her friends, she decides to give Nick a chance.
The scary thing about this episode is that I can now identify Blutbads without being told of what they are.
It was a great episode that shows us that Nick is a walking target, Hank and Monroe are accepting of the task of backing Nick up as he handles both crime in the human world and the not so human world and that Juliet is letting Nick in. Of course, when things fall in place for Nick, inevitable the other shoe drops.
