Don’t look now, but the second season premiere of Grimm is less than a week away. When last we left the NBC hit, Nick’s mother had finally come out of the shadows after years of being presumed dead, Juliette became the latest victim of Adalind’s witchcraft and fell into a coma (of sorts), Hank’s trauma from being exposed to the Wesen world had left him increasingly paranoid, and the noose around Nick’s neck was slowly being tightened by the Wesen royals, including Captain Renard. The action, drama, and supernatural had all been ratcheted up in the final few episodes of the season, leading to a major cliffhanger and a predicament that not even the most vicious Grimm could get out of unscathed.
But what happens next?
Listed below are the dates/times, episode names, and episode descriptions for the first two episodes of the second season of Grimm.
