WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD!
If you haven’t seen the Season 4 finale of ‘Grimm,’ then you may want to watch that first (or read our recap) then head back here!
Still with us? Okay…
Last Saturday in Ballroom 20 of San Diego Comic-Con 2015, ‘Grimm‘ fans were crushed when they found out that Bitsie Tulloch’s Juliette Silverton would not be returning from the dead. When asked point blank if she would return, executive producers David Greenwalt, Norberto Barba, and Jim Kouf all answered quite simply with “no.” There was more throughout the panel on how Season Four ended and what to expect from Season Five as well. Joining the EP’s on stage were stars David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bree Turner, and Claire Coffee
Prior to the cast and crew walking on stage, a video recap of Detective Nick Burkhardt through the first four seasons of the series that included a minute of Juliette’s funeral at the very end. You can see the video without the funeral scene below.
It was brought up again later where Grennwalt replied that “Anything could happen … but no.” So yes folks, unless this is all an elaborate trick, she is gone for good.
It isn’t all bad news as one thing that will get fans excited for is that on the show’s 100th episode they will finally be revealing what “those damn keys” are for! Of course he quickly followed that up with “We still don’t know what they do, but we’re gonna explain it.”
Talk about a long awaited reveal.
The actors themselves didn’t know much about what was coming but the producers let it spell that Hornsby’s Hank is going to have a love interest and Turner’s Rosalee will have her old addiction issues coming back up.
It looks like we’ll be in for some major changes in our lead characters in the upcoming season of ‘Grimm’!
