One of the synopsises available for Grimm Season 6 Episode 1 titled “The Fugitive’ reads
Following the massacre in Nick’s (David Giuntoli) loft, Capt. Renard (Sasha Roiz) is hell bent on eliminating him once and for all. Hank (Russell Hornsby) and Wu (Reggie Lee) head back to the precinct to keep an eye on the Captain and help give the gang the upper hand. Meanwhile, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) grapple with staying in Portland now that their family will be expanding. Elsewhere, Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) suffers the side effects of the mysterious stick’s healing power.
An interesting piece of trivia revolving around this episode is that ‘The Fugitive’was the first season premiere to not be the first episode filmed for its season, as “Oh Captain, My Captain” was first for season 6.

Grossante, a formidable and driven “military-type” cop, is also slated to make an appearance in the episode after his casting involvement for Season 6 was announced back in July 2016.
