You don’t play nice when global domination is your goal.

“Bonaparte will do anything to get hold of a valuable artifact—the Grimm lineage book—that’s in Nick’s possession,” says showrunner David Greenwalt. “This will give Black Claw the upper hand it needs for their revolution.” To secure the prize, Bonaparte gets inside Nick’s head, literally. “It’s an epic showdown,” Greenwalt adds. “Our fans are going to see Nick at his most vulnerable.”
