The Final Battle Begins: GRIMM Season 6 Exclusive Scoop

Nick Burkhardt's troubles are only just beginning in Grimm's season 6 premiere.
Ok, let's recap for a moment. When we last checked in on Nick and his friends, he was surrounded by Black Claw operatives, and facing death at the hands of Bonaparte's men, led by captain Renard.
Knowing he was making a last stand, Nick sent Monroe, Rosalee, Hank, Wu, Eve and Trubel into the tunnels, only to lock the door against their return. (In fairness, everyone should probably have given some thought about how they were going to get out of the tunnels later, but I digress.)
While Nick fought on bravely alone, he was no match for Black Claw's numbers, and was eventually shot to death. However, still in possession of the mysterious healing stick, Nick was unexpectedly resurrected moments later and managed to turn the tide in his favor.
Enter Renard and Black Claw leader Bonaparte, and a boss fight was looking imminent. However, Renard and Adalind's daughter, Diana, pretty peeved about those bruises on her mother's neck, intervened, and using a creepy Voodoo dolly, compelled her father to kill Bonaparte instead.
So what's next for Nick, Renard and everyone stumbling around blindly in those tunnels? What about the vast numbers of dead Wesen all over Portland? Is there anyone left alive at HW? Can Nick help Adalind escape her twisted fairytale engagement? What's going on with Eve, and when can we squee over the prospect of a Monrosalee baby?
Read on for more scoop on the January 6th premiere.
The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul
There’s something about wandering around a dank maze of pitch dark tunnels that brings out the inner anguish in people.
The premiere pumps the brakes for a moment by checking in individually with each of Nick’s closest friends as they desperately search for a way out. Some will despair. Some will refuse to give up, and some will wonder if the battle for Portland is lost.
In a tense and action-filled first hour, this is perhaps the only time we’ll see these characters’ doubts and fears this closely again.
