You didn't think Grimm would get to a mid-season finale without delving into Krampus, did you? The mythical beast, long part of the holiday tradition in Europe is gaining popularity (notoriety?) in the States, and NBC's Grimm is celebrating Krampus with his own episode.
Marshall and Belinda take their sone, nine year old Daniel, to a church late one night for an exorcism. An old priest (Monsignor Paul) and a young priest (seminary student Matthew) take Daniel into a back room. as the monsignor begins the rites, Daniel’s sweet boyish face changes. It grows pale and veiny, his eyes glow, and his teeth grow sharp. Matthew tries to hold the boy down but is no match for his super strength. He ties the boy to ornate bars on the edges of the table he is on, but the demon is too strong. Daniel pulls the bar free and uses it to beat the priests.
