'Grimm' Recap: Death by Dating

This week on Grimm, the death of a woman may be connected to a serial rapist. Somewhere in between, frogs are swallowed whole and ears are cut off. All in a day's episode. What I can't figure out is which Grimm tale this is related to. Anyone have any idea? My best guess is Three Billy Goats Gruff.

It's based off Bluebeard (or Fitcher's Bird, I think), which is the story of this guy who married a woman, then, to test how obedient she was, would go off on a trip, give her a key that opened every room in the house and an egg, and the instructions to do whatever she wanted except go in one room in the house. Every single wife would go into the room and see all his previous wives with their heads chopped off, preserved in the room. She'd drop the egg in shock and it would get blood on it, which wouldn't come off. When Bluebeard came home and saw the egg with the blood on it, he'd kill her, too.
