Bitsie Tulloch's character Juliette in NBC’s police procedural fantasy television drama Grimm is truly dead and her boyfriend/co-star David Giuntoli knows it all.
We saw Juliette becoming an extremely powerful Hexenbiest followed by series of events and dangerous spells last season. The event brought a tremendous change in her personality and turned her into an antagonist with sympathy for her friends. She starts finding joy in her power and brews hatred against Nick and his allies in her heart. Her revenge and lack of empathy leads to Nick’s mother’s death and she is later shot by Trubel in the Season 4 finale.
After watching Juliette being shot, several of the audiences and die-hard fans of Bitsie were shocked and most of them believed that her character would surely survive and would be revived in the new and fifth season of the series. There was speculation about what would happen further with Juliette in Season 5. And everybody thought that an important character like hers would surely be brought back with a twist. After all, Grimm is popular for its fairy tale element. But all hopes have been shattered into pieces.
Bitsie’s real life boyfriend and co-star David Giuntoli recently revealed that Juliette is actually dead in the series and she won’t be coming back to the show. The season five has stated already and the story picked up from where it ended last time; David’s character Nick Burkhardt’s mother’s beheading and Juliette’s (David’s love interest) death.
After the death of Juliette, everybody thought that her boyfriend Nick would kill Trubel, who shot her. But he didn’t, because he knew that she was a sort of a zombie and there was no other option than to kill her. So now, the story will continue without our dear Bitsie and new drama and twists are on our way.
With his mother and lover’s death, Nick would be seeking revenge with the bad forces, but Juliette would always be in his heart. Her death has ruined him and he has turned to a darker path.
“I think he is off the rails, more than seeking emotional support at this point, I think he is seeking revenge more than anything else,” Giuntoli told. “He has to get over this trauma before he can even really start working with them again.”
Nick revealed that he has more responsibilities coming his way as he has become a dad to Adalind’s son Kelly.
“The new baby is in tremendous danger,” Giuntoli told “Nick, basically, wants to take it into a bunker with him and Adalind. And you will see that maybe we do. I want to get out of the house. My priority is I want to keep this baby safe. And the best way to do that is to pack up and leave. Get the hell out of Dodge.”
Nick’s effort to save his son might hint at the chance of romance between him and his former enemy/mother of his child, Adalind. And if they indeed fall for each other, will Juliette’s memories simply fade away?
Now that Juliette is dead and Adalind has become normal, there is indeed a greater chance of these two hooking up. But we hope the love between Bitsie and David in real life remains as strong as ever. They started dating each other after they met each other on the set of Grimm.
