'Grimm's' David Giuntoli warns major cliffhangers ahead

NBC’s Grimm has been on what we like to call a hellatus, but the wait is almost over! The show returns this Friday night with the episode “Bad Luck,” which focuses on a case where a man’s foot has been cut off.

This disturbing case will play on the superstition of the lucky rabbit’s foot, with Rosalee and Monroe going undercover to help solve it. The episode picks up right where the last one left off—with Nick stunned by the revelation that Juliette is a Hexenbiest. We had the pleasure of chatting with David Giuntoli (Nick Burkhardt) about the future of Nick and Juliette’s relationship, Friday’s twisted spin on an old tale, and the final episodes of the season that will change Nick forever.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY COMMUNITY: At the end of the last episode, Nick found out that Juliette is now a Hexenbiest. What kind of reaction should we expect from Nick after learning that his love is now his mortal enemy?

DAVID GIUNTOLI: It’s kind of devastating news. Her being a Hexenbiest is really just a side effect of what we had to put her through. And it’s like the worst STD a person can get—being a Hexenbiest—and it’s a side effect of when she became Adalind. [Nick] feels terrible and I think Nick is definitely going to try to work it out with her; whether she can work it out with Nick is another story. But Nick’s going to try to figure out a way to make it all work.

Nick had to be a little proud of Juliette for kicking Adalind’s ass though, right?

It was rad. Nick can’t say it. It’s like when your kid beats up the bully in school, you can’t really say you’re proud because you can’t condone fighting, but inside [Nick’s] really thinking, “that’s [my] girl.”

Juliette as a Hexenbiest could make an awesome addition to the wesen crime-fighting gang. Would Nick, Wu, and Hank be down with that?

She’d be great. She’s the most powerful Hexenbiest there is. She’d be a great addition if only we could harness her power and keep her from going to the dark side every now and again. But right now, she’s too much of a wild card.

Should we expect to see Nick angry with Juliette for turning to Renard before him?

That’s minor in the scheme of things. You’ll see some reasons he’s going to get really angry with her coming up.

Friday‘s wesen case centers around the tale of the lucky rabbit’s foot. How does Grimm put a spin on this classic superstition?

It’s very macabre. We have creatures in the world that are actually wesen, human, creature, wesen-oids. And when you saw a foot off a live rabbit … it’s a bad scene. Our writers are taking it to a dismal, dark, horrible place.

Give us all the juicy spoilers for the second half of the season that you can!

The last, I think, seven episodes, you get to see Nick’s mom, you get to see Trubel, and things change in Nick’s life that’ll never be the same. I’d say the events that take place in Nick’s life, in probably the last five episodes, are as momentous as him finding out that he’s a Grimm. These are the biggest cliffhangers we will have ever had on the show, and there’s going to be about three of them.

Don’t miss the return of Grimm this Friday, March 20, at 8/7C on NBC.
