For five seasons, Reggie Lee’s Sgt. Wu has provided heart, humor and humanity to the NBC creature drama. Now it seems, he’s about to start showing some teeth.
In the March 25 episode entitled “Lycanthropia,” the gang are on the scent of a suspicious businessman who seems to disappear whenever there’s a full moon — leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. The episode does a solid job of toying with your expectations, and the werewolf-like Lycanthropes might just end up haunting your dreams tonight.
As it turns out, the hairy, homicidal monster is just the beginning. Read on for some spoiler-heavy details about the mother of a problem that Wu now finds himself in.
As Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) take the lead with the investigation, they are immediately suspicious of the curt businessman who claims to have been attacked by a dog. In a “Psycho”-like aside, he seems pretty obsessed with his mother — especially when it comes to them both being indoors after dark.
Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) is convinced that they are dealing with Lycanthropia, which is a werewolf-like infection among Wesen. But as the gang eventually figure out, they’ve spent all this time examining the wrong person — because it’s his mother who has been transforming and feasting after dark.
In the action that follows, poor Wu takes some damage. At the end of the episode, in a big tease that will leave “Grimm” fans breathless until the next episode, we can see that Wu was scratched during the confrontation. As a full moon lingers overhead, we can see Wu in bed, sweating profusely and looking as though he’s about to turn into a … wait for it … Wuwolf?
Whatever happens next, it will be fun to watch the beloved Reggie Lee get a plotline central to him. Without a doubt, “Grimm” fans will be eager to watch, as things are getting increasingly hairy.
