CastingEdit

Rodriguez returned as Chavez in the episode "The Grimm Identity", as she revealed on her instagram account.[4] In late August, Carlson Young was cast as Selina Golias, a character forced to hide the survivor of an attack that resulted in her boyfriend's death, resulting in Selina becoming the target of a Wesen "Rat King" who doesn't mind if she becomes collateral damage in a never-ending Wesen feud.[5] In early September, Madeline Brewer was cast as Billie Trump for episodes 6 and 7 of the season. Billie is a Skalengeck described as "a fierce lieutenant in an up-and-coming Wesen street gang who is raising hell in Portland."[6] It was announced in November that Bailey Chase had been cast as Lucien Petrovich, "the leader of a Wesen revolutionary group." The news was broken by Deadline.[7]

After Renard is declared mayor, Hank is arrested when two bodies are found in his house. Nick realizes this was set-up by Black Claw and, with Monroe's help, learns Hank's location from Tony. Nick, Trubel, and Eve go to rescue Hank, only to find out this was a trap to get them away from the Hadrian's Wall headquarters. They return to find everyone dead, including Meisner. Unable to control himself, Nick attacks Renard at the police station and Renard has him arrested for assault.
Black Claw starts to make their move when they learn of Nick's arrest. Wu calls the others when the station is bombarded with 911 calls, leaving it almost empty. While Monroe and Rosalee hide the Grimm books and weapons, the other hurry to the station, but find Nick has already been taken by Black Claw. They manage to rescue him, but Eve is injured by Conrad Bonaparte, a Zauberbiest and leader of Black Claw. Nick tries to heal Eve with the stick, only to realize Bonaparte knows their location. Nick stays and fights while the others escape in the tunnels. With the stick constantly healing him, Nick kills all the attackers. Bonaparte and Renard then appear. Just as Bonaparte attempts to kill Nick, Diana – in retaliation for painfully coercing Adalind to reveal Nick's location – takes control of Renard's body long enough to kill Bonaparte.

Opening quote (Part 1): "It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees."
