NBC's Grimm Gets Goldfever

Golden Eagle by Sue Warner
After Once's addition of King Midas, and his gold-creating fingers, Grimm has let leak their own gold-focused episode in the works.
TVLine got the exclusive on the news that (Lost's Titus) Welliver... will be playing Farley Holt in NBC’s supernatural procedural Grimm. Mr. Holt is described as a creature with the ability to morph into a steinadler, which according to google, is a golden eagle. Whether or not he’s a bad guy remains to be seen. We know from the reformed big-bad-wolf Monroe that not all of the creatures frequently hunted by Nick and the other Grimms are living an evil lifestyle.

Gold doesn’t just refer to the bird, either. TVLine says Welliver’s character will explain to Nick “the history behind a cache of gold coins that seem to exert an uncanny hold over whoever takes possession of them.” (The precious!)

Which fairy tale will this be based on? Any guesses*?

One idea is below - but it's a total guess. I'd be surprised if it is Snow White and Rose Red. Happily surprised, of course, but still surprised. :)

* Other than Rumpelstiltskin, which doesn't have a gold eagle The Two Brothers springs to mind but that's such a long and complex tale. Another option - and it does have an eagle - is Snow White and Rose Red (with the ungrateful dwarf and his jewel and coin hoards.

  1. Nice post about gold fever at this time Gold has been advancing for over 10 years now, from a low of $252 per ounce in 1999 to where it sits today at $1,755, which is a gain of over 595%. With gold at unprecedented levels (previous bull market high was $850/oz) is it any wonder why someone would question starting to acquire gold?
