Golem terrorizes Portland

GOLEM WATCH: 'Grimm" Season 4 Episode 4 Spoilers: Jewish Golem Made of Clay Terrorizes Portland [WATCH] (Selena Hill, Latin Post).
In the upcoming episode of "Grimm," which is entitled "Dyin' on a Prayer," an ancient evil monster made up of clay will terrorize Portland. In addition, there will be hope for Adalind to escape her present situation if she can learn to her trust strangers, reports Carter Matt.

In a preview clip, Nick and Hank take a trip to a Jewish temple where a young Rabbi tells them about the Jewish folklore of a 16th century golem made from clay. Although its remains were supposed to be stored away in the attic of synagogue, they were reported missing in 1984 by a documentary film crew. As a result, the Rabbi shows the detectives an empty jar that was supposed to store the remains.
In the photo I see rather too much influence from The Walking Dead, especially in the golem on the right.
