Meanwhile, Nick, Greg, and Hodges celebrate Henry's birthday ("Appendicitement") as Catherine comes face to face with Rascal Flatts ("Unshockable"), and Langston begins to investigate a series of murders committed by Dr. Jekyll ("Sin City Blue"), which may lead to his own brutal end ("Meat Jekyll").
