'Grimm' Premiere Leaves Juliette's Life In The Balance (VIDEO)

Hoping to ride the good waves of ratings from their coverage of the Olympics, NBC gave a very early premiere to their supernatural crime drama "Grimm" (Mon., 10 p.m. ET). For the first three episodes of the new season, "Grimm" will air on Mondays where the network hopes it can find a bigger audience to take back to Fridays, where it was already doing relatively well.

The premiere picked up almost exactly where the finale left off, with Nick finding out that his mother didn't die in that car accident. Instead, she was alive and well and a Grimm who could probably take him down while barely breaking a sweat.

Meanwhile, Hank is still grappling with having seen the mythological creatures Nick fights. Nick opened up to Juliette, but she's not likely to remember as the coma induced by Adalind erases memories. Rosalee and Monroe developed an antidote, but they only have 45 minutes to administer it as it's very unstable.

The problem with that is that Nick is more than a little busy with the most dangerous killer creature he's yet faced. And with the creature leaping for the kill, this season premiere was "to be continued."

Tune in next Monday at 10 p.m. ET on NBC to see how "Grimm" gets out of this one.
