‘Grimm’ Episode Guide (April 8): A Minister Uses His Unique Ability to Increase His Flock

“The Believer” (04/08/16) – An evangelical preacher (guest star William Mapother) has a tent revival unlike any other when he uses his Wesen identity to gain more believers.

Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) are called to the scene as things escalate when a group of “true believers” are hell bent on saving the preacher and his flock by any means necessary.

Meanwhile, Capt. Renard (Sasha Roiz) takes further steps to gain power in local government. Elsewhere, Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) uses Adalind’s (Claire Coffee) ol’ hat trick to gain more access to Black Claw.

“Grimm” is a drama series inspired by the classic Grimm Brothers’ Fairy Tales. After Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) discovers he’s descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as ‘Grimms,’ he increasingly finds his responsibilities as a detective at odds with his new responsibilities as a Grimm.

In the wake of his mother’s beheading and Juliette’s death, things have never been more chaotic for Nick. Having lost so much, Nick must dig deep and decide what type of person he wants to be, while also coming to grips with fathering a child with his once sworn enemy, Adalind (Claire Coffee).

On top of all this, crime in Portland continues to rise, with even more dangerous Wesen coming out of the shadows and making their way to the great Northwest. A Wesen uprising is on the horizon and everyone will need to be prepared.

“Grimm” also stars Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz, Reggie Lee and Bree Turner.

“Grimm” is a Universal Television and Hazy Mills production. The series was created by David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf and Stephen Carpenter. Sean Hayes, Todd Milliner (“Sean Saves the World,” “Hot in Cleveland”) and Norberto Barba (”The Bridge”) serve as executive producers along with Greenwalt and Kouf.
