GRIMM: 5 Things to Know About the Season 5 Premiere
Could Grimm have left fans with any more of a cliffhanger last season?
From the sudden and violent death of Nick’s mother Kelly, to the also sudden and violent death of Bitsie Tulloch’s Juliette — a series regular from the very first episode — last season’s finale served up a series of shocks that kept fans talking over the long hiatus.
Is Juliette really dead? What revenge path is Nick on this season? And where will former nemesis Adalind and her new baby fit into Nick’s life now, if at all?
The show returns in typically timely fashion on October 30 (just in time for Halloween) with “The Grimm Identity,” an episode which will pick up on those dangling threads and pull the show in a new direction this year.
We’ve seen the first couple of episodes a little early, thanks to our friends at NBC, and have a series of teasers to share with you on what’s to come.
If you’re a regular reader of these types of articles here at ScreenSpy, then you’ll know we do our best to avoid spoiling major developments and plot lines that might otherwise ruin your enjoyment of the episode (we want you to enjoy it as much as we did).
For that reason, we consider the following carefully structured and worded points to be teasers rather than outright spoilers.
However, as always, we urge you to be cautious, as one man’s teaser is another man’s spoiler.
Here then are 5 things you might like to know about Grimm’s Season 5 premiere “The Grimm Identity.”
… And Action!
Fans can expect the action to pick up exactly where we left off last season.
There’s no 6 month time jump cop out here, a la other shows. We’ll see every one of Nick’s very visceral reactions to everything that happens, as it happens.
There is however, a moment of deep surrealism in the opening moments thus far not shared in any of the sneak peek clips we’ve seen for the premiere. If you want to know more, check out our third point.
The events of this opening scene will place Nick on a war path, and at odds with Captain Renard, who will find it increasingly difficult to keep Nick’s Grimm activities under wraps over the first handful of episodes.
