In this May 2013 interview, Grimm’s executive producers David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf talked to TVLine about the Season 1 finale episode 1×22 “Woman in Black” , including Nick’s mother being alive, Juliette finding out the truth about Nick, Hank’s sanity, and what’s ahead for Nick in Season 2.

Take a sneak peek at the TVLine article.
TVLINE | That was quite a cliffhanger! Will Season 2 pick right up after the big reveal, or will there be a time jump?
JIM KOUF | Moments later! We’re picking it up right from that scene.
TVLINE | Did you always intend for Nick’s mom to be alive? Or did the identity of the Woman in Black evolve throughout the course of the season?
KOUF | That was something we talked about when we were doing the pilot, before we even had a series. It was one of the first things we came up with.
TVLINE | With Akira Kimura dead and his mother alive, what is Nick’s next step?
DAVID GREENWALT | He’ll have to be dealing with his mother, Juliette, Hank and all kinds of people and things. There will be bigger and badder enemies coming for him, and everything will be sort of on a larger scale.
KOUF | As you saw in the finale, his life is becoming a little more unraveled by all of this, and it’s going to continue to do so in the first few episodes of Season 2 — he’s going to be forced to deal with some more issues.
