Grimm wraps up its sophomore season tonight with a continuation of the undead-tastic storyline that started in last week’s episode: The Grimm version of zombies are spreading mayhem in Portland.
Reg E. Cathey (The Wire, House of Cards) returns as the pufferfish-like Wesen character based on Haitian Voodoo’s Baron Samedi, and we haven’t seen the last of his infectious green spit that is turning Portlanders into zombie-like creatures.
“There’s a massive gathering coming, and [Baron Samedi] is getting a lot of people — or former people — to do his bidding,” executive producer David Greenwalt teased.
While last year’s finale ended with the reveal of Nick’s mother, tonight’s season-ender will feature a cliffhanger that has “bigger, more global” implications, Greenwalt said. “Last year[‘s finale] had a very personal tone, and this is a big, bad conspiracy tone.”
Things come to a head for the tense alliance between Adalind and Frau Pech in Austria. And though Nick and Juliette appear to be patching things up, don’t expect anything remotely like a ride off into the sunset for these two. Executive producer Jim Kouf told EW that though there’s some resolution for the couple now that Juliette’s memories have returned, “it’s very nice [for Nick and Juliette] until all hell breaks loose.”
The season 2 finale of Grimm – which nods to Hamlet with its title, “Goodnight, Sweet Grimm” – airs at 10 p.m. PT/ET tonight on NBC.
