An ‘undead’ Nick is ‘going to the dark side’ in Season 3 of ‘Grimm’
Some Grimms are better off ‘undead’ . . . at least according to a promo for the Season 3 premiere of “Grimm.”
As “Grimmsters” will recall, at the end of the Season 2 finale, our beloved Nick Burkhardt was captured by Capt. Renard’s brother Eric and Baron Samedi and sprayed with green goo from the Cracher-Mortel, beginning his transformation into a zombie.
He was then lowered into a coffin as Eric said to him, “Goodnight, sweet Grimm.”
When Season 3 kicks off tonight at 9 p.m. ET on CTV with an episode titled “The Ungrateful Dead,” we’ll find out what this really means for Nick.
“Something is going to happen to Nick in that box, and he is going to be very different,” co-creator David Greenwalt told SciFiNow. “It will change his life and his relationships. He is definitely going to the dark side.”
Even though Eric and Baron Samedi have plans to take him on a “long flight” to Europe, the Scooby gang of Monroe, Rosalee and Juliette won’t give up without a fight.
“I can’t believe they took Nick,” says Monroe in the preview, as Rosalee is shown concocting a yellow-hued potion at the spice shop.
Juliette, who reunited with Nick in the Season 2 finale, will stop at nothing to get him back, slapping her former obsession Capt. Renard in the face as she says, “Your family is responsible for this. You better get him back.”
But not all hope is lost. At the end of the preview, Nick is shown jumping out of the coffin, red eyes blazing, as he lunges at Baron Samedi.
“There’s going to be a lot of fighting in the first episode back,” David Giuntoli, who plays Nick, said in an interview with SciFiNow. “It’s very nice to get to be angry.”

The Season 3 premiere of “Grimm” airs Friday, Oct. 25 at 9 p.m. ET on CTV. Full episodes will also be available online at CTV.ca.
