Grimm will return to NBC tonight with its fifth season premiere. Nick, played by David Giuntoli, is back, and he will not be in a good place at all when the action picks up. Season five will begin right where season four ended in May.
The finale shocked fans of the series, and it was something that generated conversation all summer long. The final moments of the episode saw Trubel shoot Juliette. Fans wondered if she would live after that, and that is not likely.
Earlier in the episode, Nick found his mother’s head in a box, so in one day he has lost both his mother and the love of his life.
That Grimm finale sets up a big change for the series for season five. Nick is no longer the same man he was when the series began. He is now looking for revenge, and his fury will take the show in a new direction.
However, there is one bright spot in his life – his son. Adalind will give birth during the season five premiere, and fans will learn the baby’s name before the end of the episode.
Giuntoli teased to TV Insider that the “baby is the only thing that keeps Nick from lopping off his own head. Having a son grounds him.”
The premiere will deal with Juliette’s death and the events that followed. A group broke into Nick’s house after Juliette was shot. They knock Nick out, take Trubel, and take Juliette’s body and his mother’s head.
Juliette’s death will not be easy on any one, but Rosalee will have a lot of issues with it. She and Juliette were close after all.
As for Adalind, fans of the series will see a change in her. This time around, she wants to be a good mother to her child. She didn’t have a chance to do that with her daughter.
