In a very good marketing ploy NBC is kicking off Season Two of Grimm early, right after their spectacular Olympics finish, starting this Monday, August 13 at 10:00 PM with an episode called “Bad Teeth.” The show will present 2 more episodes in this time slot, finally moving to its normal schedule September 14th of Friday nights at 9:00 PM.
Last year, Grimm’s audience grew slowly, but steadily, each week despite being opposite two fan/cult favorites: Supernatural on the CW and Fringe on Fox. Supernatural is moving to Wednesday nights at 9:00 (starting October 3) and Fringe is finishing up their 5th season run with 13 episodes starting September 28.
Now is the time to give Grimm a chance.
According to the NBC press material the synopsis for “Bad Teeth” is:
A FOREIGN AGENDA TO HUNT DOWN NICK IS REVEALED AS THE BODY COUNT IN PORTLAND RISES –BRIAN TEE, JAMES FRAIN AND MARY ELIZABETH MASTRANTONIO GUEST STAR — After their face-off with Kimura (guest star Brian Tee), Nick (David Giuntoli) finds himself trying to come to grips with the return of his mother, Kelly Burkhardt (guest star Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio).
