Adalind takes a cab to a house and Renard greets her at the door. He's surprised that she brought Kelly, and admits that he didn't know what Adalind would do. When Adalind realizes that Diana isn't there, Renard says that Black Claw will bring her now that they're sure Adalind came alone. He warns her that they don't have complete control, and says that he'll deal with Nick once the Grimm realizes that he is involved. Adalind insists that nothing happens to Kelly, and isn't convinced when Renard says that he'll treat the baby as his own. He says that they're a family whether they like it or not, and assures Adalind that she made the right decision.

At home, Monroe is working on a watch while Rosalee watches mayoral results come in. As they go to bed, there's a knock on the door. It's Nick, who explains that Adalind left with Kelly.

At the HW base, Trubel meets with the trio and tells them that they have a Portland location from the place where Black Claw was originally keeping Diana. They go to the command center and Meisner confirms that Black Claw is moving a lot of people around the northwest U.S. He shows the others the organization chart HW has created of the Black Claw structure, and Renard is now near the top.

Adalind warns that they have no idea how powerful Diana is, and Renard says that they have to make it work. He tells Adalind to get with the program, and asks if she fell in love with Adalind. Adalind refuses to answer, and Renard says that he'll take what he can get. She telekinetically throws a vase at him and says that's what he's going to get, and orders him out of her room. Renard has no choice but to go.
Trubel meets Nick at the bunker and says she'll help Nick however he can. He says that Adalind told him that she loves him, and Trubel says that she knows.

As the police take Tony away, Hank tells Zuri that something doesn't feel right about the guy. He figures the guy was there for him, and he has to find out if Tony knows him. As Zuri goes inside, Franco tells Hank that they found the Wesen's car down the street. There's no registration and the reports were reported stolen. Hank takes the laptop and tells Franco to impound the car.
Back at the bunker, Nick tells Trubel what happened. He tells her that he recovered something in Germany and goes into the tunnel to get the stick.
At the station, Hank checks the laptop but is unable to bypass the password. Franco identifies Tony from his fingerprints and determines that he used to be with a criminal hacker group.
Nick shows the stick to Trubel and explains that it apparently has healing powers. They suspect that it might prove that God exists, and Nick shows her where he hid it. He insists that HW and Black Claw can't know about it, and confirms that he didn't tell Adalind.
Trubel returns to the HW base and tells Meisner and Eve what happened. As she collects her weapons, Eve figures that Trubel is angry.

Trubel wonders what Juliette would think, and Eve says that she doesn't go there because it's too dangerous.
The next morning, Nick arrives at the station and Hank tells him what happened. Nick brings his partner up to speed on what happened, and Hank offers to deal with Renard. The Grimm passes for the moment and says that for now, they have to figure out if Tony is connected to Black Claw. They figure that if they pressure Tony and he doesn't woge, it means that he knows Nick is a Grimm.
In the interrogation room, Tony refuses to tell them anything. Nick points out that Tony woged in front of Hank and invites him to do it again. Tony plays dumb and Nick slams his head into the table, but Tony doesn't woge. Outside, Nick figures that they shouldn't do anything until they figure out what kind of Wesen Tony is. Wu arrives and says that he's feeling good, and tells them that he's getting a handle on his infection. Hank gives him the laptop to crack.
At the spice shop, Hank goes through the Grimm journals with Monroe and Rosalee. They identify Tony as a Kackenthopt. When Hank mentions Tony's name, Rosalee realizes that it's her Tony. Wu calls Nick and tells the team that Tony downloaded everything on Hank's phone. Hank points out that there was no signs of forced entry at Zuri's, and Nick suggests that she let Tony in. His partner agrees that she could have, and Monroe wonders if Zuri got involved with Hank again for just that reason. Hank figures that they'll have to force Zuri to admit if she's Black Claw.

He asks where Nick is, and Adalind refuses to tell him.
Nick goes to Zuri's and asks to come in. He looks around nervously and tells her that Hank is getting a safehouse ready for her.

She woges and attacks him, and Hank knocks her out.
Later, Zuri wakes up in an HW interrogation cell. Meisner, Eve, and Trubel are there, and Zuri recites the Black Claw slogan. Meisner leaves Eve to her work, and Eve seals over Zuri's mouth as Trubel warns that it doesn't get better.
Nick and Hank arrive in the base as the reporters announce that Renard has won the election. They show Renard arriving with Rachel and Jeremiah nearby to make his victory speech. Bonaparte, Adalind, Kelly, and Diana are off-stage watching, and Diana glares at Rachel. Renard calls Adalind and the children up, and Adalind reluctantly goes up. As Renard holds Kelly, Nick stares at his son in shock. Meanwhile, Bonaparte receives a call that Zuri has been taken. Black Claw knows where she is, so they know where HW is as well.
