Nick and Hank Edit
A car parks outside a church. The occupant takes some pills and then joins a grief counseling session while Molly Fisk is speaking about her brother. The man introduces himself as Andre and talks about how much he misses his deceased wife. After the meeting ends, Andre offers Molly a ride to her home. Once there they talk and he breathes a red mist into her eyes, She pulls away and cries, he says "that's what I want" and woges into a Jinnamuru Xunte using his tongue to lick her tears then he leaves. Molly screaming that she is unable to see pulls a bookcase down on top of herself and is crushed to death.
Nick, Monroe, Hank and Rosalee are having dinner at Monroe's house and are discussing the fact that Captain Renard is a Zauberbiest, a Royal and woke Juliette up with a kiss. They speculate as to his motivations.
Next morning Nick, Hank and Sgt Wu are at Molly's home to investigate her non-appearance at work. Nick notices that her eyes are really red and does not think that the injury was caused by the bookcase.
Andre pulls up outside another church, takes some more pills and then heads inside to join a grief support group
The Medical Examiner (Dr Harper) reports that Molly suffocated as her windpipe was crushed, but that the most interesting thing is that she was blind and that had only just happened. In her eyes was something that looked like sand but was actually some parasites that resemble those causing River Blindness which is caused through the bite of a fly. The ME doesn't know how Molly contracted the infection since it only occurs in Africa.
Meanwhile Andre is attacking Kelly, when he is interrupted by Casey. Nick, Hank and Sgt Wu respond to the call where Casey confirms the sketch of Andre is her sister's attacker. She also gives a description of his car.
Nick, Monroe and Hank find information about the Jinnamuru Xunte in the trailer and discover that it feeds on tears.
Dr Harper confirms that the worms in Kelly's eyes are the same as those found in Molly, but bigger and still living.
The car is found outside a high school where a grief support meeting is taking place. Nick, Hank and Sgt Wu see Andre and chase him back into the school. Whilst attempting to arrest him, Nick is sprayed with the red mist, and initially sees through a red filter and then is blinded. Andre carjacks a car to escape.
Hank takes Nick to Spice Shop at his request as he realizes that the hospital won't help.
Nick seems to be developing enhanced senses as he identifies Rosalee as his hearing becomes more acute.
One of the ingredients for the cure is the eye of the Jinnamuru Xunte removed with a spoon when fully woged.
Casey is crying for her sister when Andre enters her house.
Nick hears Hank receive notification that they have found the stolen car and works out that Andre will be at Casey's house.
Casey is fighting Andre (remembering to cover her eyes at the right moment) when Hank kicks down the door. Nick, Rosalee, Monroe and Hank start searching the house for Andre, while Casey grabs a kitchen knife and stays downstairs. Nick tracks Andre to the attic by noise, confronts him, fights him and knocks him out. Monroe extracts an eye and Rosalee makes the potion, puts it on a bandage and applies the bandage to Nick. Whilst this is happening Andre recovers consciousness and goes downstairs where Casey stabs and kills him.
Sometime later Nick is shown practicing hitting thrown fruit, whilst blindfold, with Monroe who says that "those little red worms may have done you some good".
Renard EditSean Renard dreams that he wakens to find Juliette Silverton in his bed. He tells her that she should not be there. She woges into an old woman and tells him to kiss her like he did before.
Juliette EditJuliette Silverton thinks she is going insane because of the things she is seeing in her home. She visits Rosalee Calvert at the Exotic Spice & Tea Shop and describes her fears. Rosalee accompanies Juliette to Juliette's home where Juliette describes what she has seen. Rosalee is unable to see the ghost-like shadow that Juliette can see. In the evening, Juliette again senses the shadow and berates it. The shadow briefly sharpens and she sees that it is Nick. The shadow wisps away.
Vienna EditFrau Pech visits Adalind Schade in Vienna. She is aware of Catherine Schade's death and of Adalind having lost her Hexenbiest spirit. She senses Adalind's pregnancy and Adalind tells her that the father was one of two half-brothers. Pech concludes that the father is a royal. Pech says that she can help with the valuable child.
