LOYD AND WIL TRAVAL GUEST STAR - The prophecy that was uncovered comes to pass when a dark force arrives in Portland with its eyes set on Diana (guest star Hannah R. Loyd).

Production NotesEdit

  • Footage from "Pilot" and "Face Off" was reused (flashbacks).
  • This episode ended with a title card reading, "To Be Continued..."



  • Zerstörer is German for "destroyer."
  • The episode title is a reference to the 1957 novel Atlas Shrugged, written by Ayn Rand. The novel depicts an oppressive and dystopian society existing in the United States with the most prominent and successful industrialists abandoning their fortunes to fight back against aggressive new regulations.
  • This episode marks the first time Jim Kouf has written an episode of Grimm with his daughter, Brenna Kouf.
  • This episode marks the first time an ending title card (and the same exact title card) has been used in back-to-back episodes.
  • Lowell Deo, who portrays Attendant Todd, also previously portrayed Mayor in "You Don't Know Jack".
  • Adam Hart, who portrays Driver, has previously been a stunt performer in various episodes of Grimm since season 4. This episode marks his first credited character role on the show.
  • Monroe's line that Diana "knows something wicked is this way coming" is a reference to Macbeth, the play by William Shakespeare. The line in Shakespeare's play specifically occurs in Act 4, scene 1, when one of the witches says, "By the pricking of my thumbs,/Something wicked this way comes."

    • I agree, because then the shock value of the character deaths decreases.
    • They should make a spin off about kelly and Diana
