Papa Ghede is a handsome fellow in his hat and coat of black. Papa Ghede is going to the palace! He'll eat and drink when he gets back!

In Vienna, Eric returns to his family castle with Adalind. He assures her that she's living up to his expectations and wonders what it would have been like to sleep with her when she had her powers. Adalind suggests that could still happen and starts to undress. Eric's butler interrupts to inform him that there is a call from his father. He goes to get it and Adalind goes to the door and listens in. Eric tells his father that there can be no interference once it's started, and he'll make the proposal himself. He's glad that the Families have agreed to the plan and points out that his father also slept with a Hexenbiest.

Nick and Juliette drive home and she tells him that she's been remembering a lot of what happened before her coma. She apologizes for what she said to him when she didn't remember him, and says that she doesn't want to move too fast. However, Juliette also hopes that they try again. She leans forward and kisses him and says that's how she remembers it.

The next morning, Wu and Franco are called to a domestic, unaware that a Wesen is inside, tearing apart the place. They find a woman's body and confirm that she's dead. They hear someone in the next room and go to investigate, and the Wesen attacks Franco. They struggle and Franco finally shoots and kills their attacker, whose mouth is covered in green froth.

In Vienna, Stefania comes to see Adalind at her hotel room. She tells the former Hexenbiest that there is a way to restore her powers, but it will be difficult and uncomfortable, and will require the payment of her unborn child. The Gypsy queen gives Adalind a contract to sign, but it's written in Romani. Stefania says that it will become clear once Adalind signs, and then grabs her hand and slams it down onto the contract. The magic leaves a print on the paper, and Stefania assures Adalind that the contract is binding. As she leaves, Frau Pech secretly watches from down the hallway.

Hank and Nick are called to the crime scene and discover that there's not a mark on the dead woman's body. They figure that the dead man was using drugs and orders a check on his prints. As Nick and Hank leave, an African American man in a top hat watches them from the crowd, humming quietly to himself in Creole.

At the station, Nick confirms that the woman is Lilly O'Hara, who has a long history of solicitation and drugs. She was last arrested seven weeks ago but the charges were dropped. The guy is named Richard Mulpus and has a minor arrest record for check kiting. He lives in a hotel and there's no connection between him and Lilly. Hank finds a death certificate on Mulpus dated three days ago, meaning he apparently died twice.

In Vienna, Adalind goes to a restaurant to meet with Mr. Kreiger. Frau Pech sits down next to her and warns Adalind not to betray her. She says that Adalind should take care of herself rather than try to accomplish the impossible and recover her power, and warns that she can't trust Stefania. Frau Pech says that Adalind needs someone like her who understands, warns that she may be worth more dead than alive because of the baby's royal blood, and then walks away.

Nick and Hank meet with Dr. Harper and she figures that the death certificate is a clerical accident. She assures the detectives that Mulpus is dead and that they haven't identified what drugs he was using at the time of his death. Nick takes a photo of Mulpus' face to check.

Juliette goes to see Monroe and asks him for a favor. She has remembered that Monroe was going to show her something the night that she went into her coma, and asks him to show her now. Bud is working in the next room and comes in, and Monroe tells him that Juliette came for a woge. The Eisbiber can't believe it and panics, and Juliette points out that he was the one who told her that Nick is a Grimm. Monroe is ready to woge, figuring that it's time Juliette knows the truth. Bud reluctantly agrees and suggests that they do it at the shop with Rosalee. Monroe agrees but insists that Bud come with them.

At the hospital, Nick and Hank meet with Dr. Feldman, who signed off on Mulpus' death certificate. He doesn't remember much and according to the hospital records, Mulpus is still in the morgue. The detectives go to morgue and Nick spots the man from the house, walking by. The man leaves before Nick can catch up to him, and Nick tells Hank that he saw the man at the crime scene.

Monroe and Bud bring Juliette to the shop and close the shop, and explain that Juliette wants the truth. Bud doesn't want to tell her the truth but Monroe figures that it's time to tell Juliette everything. Juliette asks them to get on with it and Monroe starts to woge. However, Rosalee says that it should be her, but first they should do a little prep. She asks Juliette if she's ever heard of a Fuchsbau.

In the hospital morgue, Nick and Hank discover that the corpse is gone.

At the station morgue, Harper begins performing the autopsy on Lilly... who sits up, gasping.

Rosalee assures Juliette that whatever she looks like, she's still herself. Juliette tells them to get on with it and Rosalee woges, revealing her Fuchsbau face. After a moment, Juliette turns and walks out. A few seconds later, she comes back in and figures that it's important that she saw it. Monroe admits that he's a Blutbad, not a Fuchsbau, but they suggest that Bud do it. Bud can't bring himself to do it but he panics and does it anyway. Juliette takes it in and then asks Monroe why he wanted the others to go first. He asks her to trust him and then woges, showing his wolf-like features. They then explain that Nick is a Grimm, not a Wesen, and Juliette suggests she have a drink.

At the Gypsy camp, Stefania gets a call from Adalind. She tells the Gypsy that Frau Pech threatened her and Stefania admits that she can't be trusted, but Hexenbiest are even worse. Stefania tells Adalind that she'll talk to Frau Pech and work something out, and advises Adalind to get some sleep. Once the gypsy hangs up, she tears apart her tent in a rage.

When Nick and Hank return to the station, Wu tells them that Lilly wasn't actually dead. They took Lilly to the ICU and the detectives head off to check it out.

In Vienna, Frau Pech meets with Renard's spy, unaware of who he really is, and asks for a private meeting with Eric. She says that she knows of someone carrying royal blood and suggests that the offspring will be highly valuable in seven months. Frau Pech says that royal blood on the open market could be dangerous in the wrong hands and then walks off.

At the ICU, the man in the top hat goes to Lilly's room and welcomes her back.

When Nick and Hank get to the hospital, they discover that Lilly is gone. They go to check the surveillance tapes.

Renard gets a call from his spy, who tells him about a child with royal blood. He warns that he has to tell Eric and tells Renard that he doesn't know who the mother and father are. The spy tells Renard that his source wants the value of the child as payment and asks if Renard wants to make a counter-offer. Renard agrees, figuring Eric will offer to pay the price and then steal the child.

When they check the surveillance tapes, they spot Lilly and the man in the top hat. Wu calls them with a preliminary tox report on Mulpus. There were several drugs in his body, including a hallucinogenic that can cause Lazarus syndrome. In large doses the drug causes erratic behavior. They have Wu put out an APB on Lilly and go to find the man in the top hat.

A tow truck driver gets a call from the man in the top hat, who claims his car has broken down. The driver gets in and immediately starts it up, and the owner woges into a blowfish-like Wesen, a Cracher-Mortel, and spits the green drug in his victim's face.

At the trailer, Nick finds an entry about a Grimm sent to determine if a voodoo priest was a Wesen. The Grimm noted that the priest had many names, and confirmed that it was a Cracher-Mortel. The Cracher-Mortel's spit can induce a deathlike trance, and the Grimm had to retreat. Monroe calls to ask Nick to come by the shop and tell him something important. Nick says that he'll be there with Hank as soon as he can.

The Baron boards a bus, woges, and starts spitting.

Eric arrives in Portland aboard his private jet and calls Renard. Renard is surprised to learn that his brother is in Portland, and Eric says that it's time for them to come to an understanding about the future. Eric says that he'll make arrangements to meet the next day and hangs up. Renard then calls his spy, who admits that he didn't know Eric was in Portland. The captain tells him to find out what Eric is up to, but the spy warns that Eric must have the Family's blessing. Renard tell him to check with Mesiner and advises his associate man to be careful.

The Baron and his "zombies" go to a cargo container where Lilly and his other victims are there. He tells them all to rest in preparation of their Mardi Gras. The Baron ushers them in and closes the door, sealing them in, and then strolls away.

Nick and Hank tell Renard who they're dealing with, and the captain points out that Hank is getting comfortable with the idea of Wesen. They try to work out what the Baron is up to and figure that Lilly will go berserk just like Mulpus did.

In Vienna, the spy checks Eric's desk and finds several passports and death certificates, and takes photos of everything.

At the shop, Monroe tells Nick and Hank that they showed Juliette their true faces, and that she came back because she wanted to. Rosalee assures Nick that Juliette wanted to know, and Nick figures that at least he won't have to lie anymore. His friends say that at least they'll know if Juliette can handle it or not.

In Vienna, Adalind looks at herself in the mirror and examines her stomach, looking for signs of her pregnancy.

Juliette prepares for dinner and tries not to obsess. There's a knock at the door and she goes to answer it, and Nick offers her flowers. She seems to be okay with what she saw, and they go inside.

At his hotel suite, Eric looks across Portland and there's a knock at the door. The Baron comes in and bows to Eric, and then they embrace, chuckling.
