Grimm (NBC, Fridays, 9/8C) has kicked off its third season with a threat that looks to be darker and more dangerous than anything Grimm Nick Burkhardt has ever faced before, but this week’s episode is pretty much a standalone with only one really disturbing moment building that arc.
The rest of the ep is (mostly) a unique take on Peter Pan and the Lost Boys – a very Grimm take, indeed.
Grimm’s (NBC, Fridays, 9/8C) fifth season gets underway this evening and things have changed quite a bit over the years. For instance, the evil Adalind we know and love to hate took on the appearance of Nick’s fiancée and slept with him – getting pregnant in the process. Then she was used and betrayed by the Royals.
Finally, with her Hexenbiest powers suppressed and with nowhere else to turn, she came to Nick for help. With everything in Nick’s life rapidly going to hell in the proverbial handcart, their baby might be the only good thing going on in his life right now. So he and his allies – Bud, Hank, Monroe and Rosalee – agreed to help her out.
On Thursday, Claire Coffee took some time out of her busy schedule to talk with a group of bloggers/journalists about the new, improved Adalind, the baby and how she and Adalind differ in their parenting styles.
Grimm (NBC, Fridays, 9/8C) got pretty dark in season four and it doesn’t look like things are going to change any time soon.
The season four finale ended with Nick discovering his mother’s head in a box moments before his fiancée, Juliette, tried to kill him – thwarted at the last moment by fellow Grimm, Teresa Rubel (Trubel) saving his life… by killing her. When a horde of masked invaders drugs Nick and kidnaps Trouble, it sets Nick off in a way that has everyone he knows thinking he’s gone way off the deep end – which is an achievement when you consider the weirdness that’s a part of the Grimm’s everyday life.
Can it be that Nick’s dire new circumstances are even more troubling than his zombie days? Or that those new circumstances can even steal Munroe and Rosalee’s wedding’s thunder? Follow the jump to find out as Silas Weir Mitchell and Bree Turner and the their fellow Grimm cast members talk about the season finale (NBC, tonight, 10/9C).
