At the end of last season, Nick was having a horrible, no good, very bad day:
- he found his dead mother’s head in a box on his dining room table;
- Juliette had gone full-on Hexenbeist, burned down his trailer of Grimm artifacts, and tried to kill him, embracing the feud with all Grimms;
- Trubel shot Juliette with a crossbow to save Nick; and,
- Nick held Juliette in his arms as she died.
