'Grimm' fan finale recap: Action, revenge, and a major loss

Season 4 | Episode 22 | “Cry Havoc” | Aired May 15, 2015

The season four finale of NBC’s Grimm comes to a bloody conclusion in “Cry Havoc,” with plenty of twists and one particularly emotional scene. The show finishes off an impressive season with a powerful and action-packed episode. After last week’s episode, Nick is furious and on the path for revenge in the wake of finding his mother’s (Kelly Burkhardt) head in a box in his living room. It doesn’t take the gang long to realize that the Royals are to blame for her murder and that Juliette lured Kelly into town with a false sense of security. The Scooby Gang rush to stop Juliette from leaving for Vienna, save Diana, and bring Kenneth to justice.

The Royals.
Kenneth brings Diana to a rental mansion to meet King Frederick, who’s ecstatic to see his granddaughter. He fawns over Juliette, as well, telling her the Royals will take good care of her in Vienna because they appreciate her power. The way Frederick gawks over Juliette’s power is giving us major “I want to keep you in a glass display case in my dungeon full of treasures” vibes. But, of course, Juliette looks like she believes him. We’re curious why she’s so easily placing her trust in strangers lately. Lonely much?

Kenneth is forced to deal with the “Grimm situation,” but unfortunately for him, Nick gets the upper hand. Using the head of the man Trubel decapitated in the previous episode, they set Kenneth up as the killer. Adalind puts the head in the penthouse Kenneth was staying at and calls the police. Kenneth gets arrested, and Wu does the honors of driving him to an abandoned building for a showdown with Nick. The rage burning in Nick is enough for him to best Kenneth, and he stabs him in the neck with a blade. Adios, Kenneth.

The timing of Kenneth’s dead couldn’t be more perfect. The gang decides to pin the Jack the Ripper murders on him since he fit the description the cops had of the killer. Yay! Renard is now off the hook.

Mission: Save Diana.
Nick, Trubel, Wu, Hank, and Monroe get the location of the mansion (thanks to Wu triangulating Juliette’s cellphone like the genius he is) and suit up to rescue Diana and keep Juliette from leaving town. They manage to take out most of Frederick’s men, but then Nick spies Frederick, Diana, and Juliette fleeing to a helicopter to make their escape.

Nick takes off to stop them, but he’s too late. The helicopter has already taken off, and Nick’s been slacking on his Plyometrics. Not to fret. While midair, Diana’s eyes glow purple and one of the pilots gets up and pushes Frederick out of the helicopter. When the pilot takes his off his mask, we see that it’s Resistance member Martin Meisner. It appears Diana actually remembers him. So, Diana is safe, and Juliette is left with nothing to do but make more poor life choices.

A tragic ending.
Juliette shows up at Nick’s house, and unsurprisingly, he starts strangling her. She tells him to do it, and she doesn’t fight back. Could Juliette have come to her senses? No, not quite. When Nick lets her go (because let’s be honest, he doesn’t have it in him to kill her), she tells him she might still love him, but she can’t keep herself form wanting to kill him. She woges and starts throwing him around the house … before Trubel appears and lands an arrow in her heart. NO!

Nick holds Juliette in his arms as she dies (we think). We know many fans were rooting for Juliette’s demise, and we understand that she probably deserved it, but we still hated to see it. Yes, she did some absolutely unforgivable things, but her anger was coming from a place of confusion and stemmed from powers that she had no idea how to control. We certainly hope the beginning of season five starts with the gang performing a resurrection spell of some sort. We can’t imagine a Juliette-less Grimm. If she’s truly gone, next season will most likely feature a broody Nick trying to come to grips with the loss of his lover. If she returns (as a human and not a raging Biest), the question would not only be if her friends could ever forgive her, but if she could live with herself.

In the last few seconds of the episode, we see some black SUVs roll up outside of Nick’s house. Who steps out, but Agent Chavez—the wesen FBI agent who tried to recruit Trubel into her wesen crime-fighting group at the beginning of the season. Whatever she’s planning on doing, now is really not the time.

Let us know what you thought of the season-four finale of Grimm and whether or not you think Juliette is gone for good. Now, we’re going to go try to process that episode and the fact we have to wait until the Fall for new episodes.

Until next time … #FangsOut.
