Grimm’s Claire Coffee Talks Complicated Relationship with Nick, Provides Diana Update

“She Wants to be a Good Person.”

With two episodes into Grimm‘s fifth season, we’ve learned that Adalind Schade birthed a healthy baby boy, which she named Kelly, after Nick’s late mother. We also learned that while Adalind doesn’t expect her baby daddy to be there for Kelly, there are no signs of Nick abandoning the two.

OMFGTV recently participated in a conference call with Adalind herself, Claire Coffee, where she previewed a little about what the former Hexenbiest is up to in the first half of the season.

Her relationship with Nick is also something that is ever changing for the first half of the season. It gets complicated is the only thing I can say.”

Along with her relationship with Nick, she’s also relying on him for protection, especially when the new threats that arrive in Portland bring a “fear that [Kelly is also] going to get taken away from them.”

It’s been quite a while since Adalind last saw her first child, Diana. At the time of our interview, the cast and crew were working on episode 11 and Claire reveals that she still hasn’t gotten her daughter back yet.

Another element that we might not see for a while is Adalind joining the Scooby Squad, but she does help them “a little bit.”

“[Nick] probes her for some knowledge more about the darker side of the Wesen world and from the kind of folklore perspective. She proves to be helpful in a few ways, [but] she’s not trekking through the forest in the nighttime.”

Grimm airs Fridays at 9pm on NBC.

    I wish Adalind would go back to being bad. She’s boring this way:(

    I´m not agree. We have seen EVERYTHING of her being a villain. Now she should stay as a good character. She has a lot of knowledge of Wesen Universe.

    Adalind will want come back to work, and have a normal life, would be the better. After 4 longs years of being the villain, she deserves a life more normal. If the relationship with Nick will grown up more complicated will be because the feelings will start to blossom sooner or later maybe.
