Grimm Season Finale’s Woman in Black
NBC’s Grimm Casts Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio in mysterious season 1 finale role
It’s hard to believe NBC’s Grimm, a series that brings to life classic fairy tales and fables, is heading toward its first season finale next month and will be going out using the tale of The Woman in Black. I’m assuming the episode will be borrowing its creature of the week from the 1983 horror novel (which spawned the 2012 film starring Daniel Radcliffe), but this could be just a similarly named person. Unfortunately, information on the episode is scarce at the moment, so the best we can do is speculate and come up with whatever ideas seem the most plausible.
As TVLine reported, the May 18th finale will feature Academy Award nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as this supposed Woman in Black. As I mentioned, there’s very little information to go on, with all we really know is she will be trouble for Nick and Hank. But really, when aren’t these Grimm characters trouble for the good guys? Could she be somehow working with Captain Renard? What kind of powers does a Woman in Black have? If she’s anything like the being from the novel/film, then she’ll be more like a ghost then a real creature.
The great thing about Grimm has been its surprising success on NBC, a network notoriously known for its lack of viewership. Despite airing on a Friday, Grimm manages around 5 million viewers per episode, and when DVR numbers are taken into account, Grimm is the number one new drama across main four networks (CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox), and number two overall. NBC really has a winner here and has shown faith in the series by giving it a second season order. Could this be a sign NBC might be able to pull itself out of the rut it has been in the last few years?
