'Grimm' 4x13 'Trial by Fire' Gif-Tweet-Cap: #BiestFight!

The "Trial by Fire" episode of Grimm was supposed to be all about the #BiestFight, but all we got was this lousy "devil." Actually, the phoenix-like Excandesco Wesen (appropriately named Damien) is pretty cool, and the #BiestFight, while short, has very high rewatch value. The following gifs are also available on this Tumblr post.

We start off with Deucalion from Teen Wolf (Damien, played by Gideon Emery) turns into a fire man inside a store while a couple of teens are making out. They break a window to escape, but the backdraft from the new opening leaves the two kids charred.
Meanwhile, Nick goes on about how the world is a better place without Hexenbiests while Biestiette knowingly smirks in outward agreement. All the while, a new nemesis for Nick may be in the process of being born.
The owner of the burned-out building acts surprised, and is supposedly upset to learn that a business started years ago by his grandfather is now gone -- along with two of his employees. But Hank and Nick learn that it may be an insurance play, and he had a problem with bankruptcy.
Meanwhile, Renard is on the search for Nick's mom, in a hope to find his kid before things get out of hand (although, the info goes straight to Adalind and the Royals, so we will probably be having a big Grimms vs Royals battle soon).

Wu finds that a similar fire took place at another  location, and one of Nick's early arrests as a Grimm -- before he knew much about the Wesen world -- comes back to haunt him. Orson, the Piggy Wesen cop he had arrested for murdering people who had murdered his own brothers is definitely not happy to see Nick, but he had been tracking the same fire-man before being arrested.
It has been 3 years, 27 days (he's been counting) since Orson's arrest, and a lot has happened. They let him out in order to help with the investigation, and he's miffed when he realizes that Hank and Renard know about Wesen (just imagine how he'd react to Renard's true form).
Nick's books aren't much help, as they basically say that nothing can be done to stop the fiery "devils." Orson deduces that he must have phosphorus inside him, which he uses to start fires.
They go to Rosalee for help with a chemical solution, while Monroe is gone (Orson and Monroe have a Bauerschwein piggy Wesen/Blutbad wolf Wesen feud involving lots of killing), but Monroe shows up and can't deal with it. Rosalee agrees to work with Orson in order to solve the murder, but they argue and Monroe leaves. Luckily, he returns after he screws his head back on straight.
The chemical solution is surprisingly normal -- consisting of substances regular people apply every day in regular creams. Sounds like something they could sell on Etsy once they use it to defeat the "Devil."
We soon find that the owner's son was behind the whole thing because he didn't want to be part of the whole family legacy. The killing of the two employees was an accident. But now devil-man is on a tear to eliminate everyone who knows anything about him.
He's set in motion a plan to kill the father and son, but Monroe and Rosalee bring along toy squirt guns containing their homemade Etsy product and they all shoot him with the goo as he's transforming into fire. This causes him to implode into little bits of charred meat, reminiscent of "concentrated Evil" in Time Bandits (best movie ever, in my opinion).
At the end, Adalind shows up at Juliette's doorstep, not knowing that Nick is a Grimm again, or that Juliette is a Biestiette. They have quite the epic witch-fight, causing Adalind to run off in terror. I was already LMAO at this point, and then we get a cherry on top in the next scene.
With the state of the house, Juliette has no choice but to finally break down and show Nick the new rotting-corpse-face hiding behind her skin. Nick looks as if he just puked in his mouth a little... and it's all quite hilarious.
