Grimm’s season 5 is getting closer. TV Insider has new scoop directly from Grimm’s lead actor David Giuntoli (Nick Burkhardt), who previews the new season, including Nick’s revenge, Juliette’s death, and more.
Take a sneak peek at the TV Insider article.
What’s Nick’s mental state in the season opener?
He’s gone rogue. He no longer cares about police protocol. In fact, Nick no longer cares about his job. He starts [the season] in an extremely dark place, the exact opposite of how we met him at the start of the series, where he was 99 percent cop and 1 percent Grimm. Now he’s 99 percent Grimm and out for revenge against the Wesen world. But in our season premiere, he’ll focus that revenge on one person in particular. But first there’s Juliette’s funeral. That’s our zany season opener.
Speaking of potions, how do Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) react to Rogue Nick?
Oh, they’re dead, too. [Laughs] Juuuust kidding! Monroe and Rosalee are the worrying parents Nick never had. They always try to have his back, but now Nick is constantly giving them ulcers…but Rosalee probably has an elixir for that. The entire Scooby Gang is trying to contain Nick. Captain Renard (Sasha Ruiz) has had it with him and wants him off the force. Hank (Russell Hornsby) and Wu (Reggie Lee) think Nick has lost it and that he’s a danger to himself and to them. And they’re right. But Nick’s still on the job and getting a paycheck. He’s no fool.
