I think it's a type of figwort, scrophularia species. Do the leaves smell quite rank when bruised? Square stem's a clue, and the flowers, even sideways, look right. Close-up of flower? A little too many flowers, and not quite dark enough for common figwort, but it could just be particularly lush plant growth.
