Detective Nick Burkhardt thought he was ready for the grim reality of working homicide in Portland, Oregon. That is, until he started to see things... things he couldn't quite explain. Like a gorgeous woman suddenly transforming into a hideous hag, or an average Joe turning into a vicious troll. Then, after a panicked visit from his only living relative, Nick discovers the truth about his visions: he's not like everyone else, he's a descendant of an elite group of hunters known as "Grimms" who are charged with stopping the proliferation of supernatural creatures in the world. And so begins his new life journey - albeit a reluctant one at first - as he solves crimes with his partner who knows something about Nick has radically changed but can't quite put his finger on it. Along the way, Nick finds himself unexpectedly getting help on some of the more difficult cases from Monroe, a guy who seems normal at first but is soon revealed to be what you might call a "big bad wolf." Literally!

[Nick enters the hospital room where his aunt Marie is being treated for wounds suffered after they were both attacked by a hulda]
MARIE: You saw him, didn't you? You saw who Hulda really was ...
NICK: I don't know what I saw, or how you did that ... What's going on?
MARIE: We have the ability to see what no one else can. When they lose control, they can't hide, and we see them for what they really are.
NICK: Look, you need some rest--
MARIE: This is no fairy tale. The stories are real. What they wrote about really happened. You are one of the last Grimms.
NICK: [stares blankly]
MARIE: I know it's a lot, and I wish I had more time, but everything's in my trailer ... Sweetie, there's so much you still don't know.
NICK: Look, what you said about my parents ...
MARIE: You're vulnerable now. You need to be careful. Don't ever lose what I gave to you.
[a young female doctor enters the room]
DR. ROSE: I'm sorry, Mister Burkhardt. You can see her again tomorrow.

Nick makes his way to the kitchen and finds the elderly woman there: his aunt, Marie Kessler. Juliette is there preparing supper and Marie apologizes for the short notice. As they hug, Marie whispers to Nick that they need to talk.

As they walk outside in the street, Marie tells Nick that she has cancer and no one can tell how long she has. When he wonders why she didn't come sooner, Marie says that she couldn't and that there are things he needs to know about his family. She asks if he's been seeing strange things that he can't explain, and Nick admits that he has. Marie says that the misfortune of their family is passing to Nick and he has to break off his engagement to Juliette. Before she can explain further, Marie sees a man in a nearby car and says that Hulda is there, and draws a knife from her cane. Another man-beast leaps out of the bushes and attacks Marie. Nick tries to help but Hulda stabs Marie with his scythe, knocking her down. When he comes after Nick, Nick manages to shoot him and then watches as the creature reverts to a normal human appearance.

Nick runs to Marie, who apologizes for leading Hulda to her nephew and warns that they're after her. She gives Nick her necklace with an amulet on it and tells him never to lose it. Just as she passes out, Marie tells Nick that his parents didn't die in a crash, but were murdered.

Later, Nick calls in the police and tells Hank what happened. His partner tells him to go to the hospital to get checked up while he handles things at the crime scene. At the hospital, Nick draws a sketch of Hulda in his beast form. Dr. Rose tells him that Marie has recovered consciousness and Nick goes to see his aunt. She explains that their family has the ability to see the creatures for what they really are when they lose control, and the creatures from fairy tales are real. Nick tells her to get some rest, but Marie tells him that he is one of the last Grimms and everything he needs is in her trailer. She warns him that he's vulnerable now and needs to be careful, and to never lose the necklace.

As Nick leaves the hospital, he examines the amulet and realizes that it conceals a key. He goes to the station and examines Hulda's scythe, which has Latin writing on it. Hank comes in and Nick explains that the inscription means "Reapers of the Grimms." His partner has learned that Hulda's prints were found at several violent crime scenes across the county. Sgt. Wu tells the partners that Captain Renard wants to see Nick. Renard tells Nick that he shot the right guy and asks how he's doing given it was his first shooting. Nick says he's fine but the captain says that he'll need to see the police psychologist and advises him to get some rest.

That night, Nick has a nightmare of Hulda chasing Juliette through the woods. He goes to Marie's trailer and finds a cabinet filled with medieval weaponry. A book on the desk contains photos and sketches of various monstrous creatures, including the woman that Nick saw earlier. Juliette comes in, startling him, and he quickly ushers her out. As they go back to the house, Nick explains that Marie was like a mother to him since he was 12 when his parents died. A cat yowls, startling Nick, but Juliette insists that it's nothing. As they go inside, something watches them from the trees.


Dr. Rose: Did you know about the scars?
Nick: What scars?
Dr. Rose: A lot of them look like knife wounds. They're all over her body. What line of work was she in?
Nick: She was a librarian.
