The Grimm matriarch hasn’t been seen in Portland since Season 2, but as Juliette discovered earlier this season, Mama Burkhardt has been keeping in touch with her son via email.

From what we hear, Kelly’s return will be connected to one of the series’ characters, but it won’t be Nick.

Mastrantonio played the First Lady of the United States in CBS’ recently wrapped Hostages.

    Finally! She was so awesome the first time around. I hope she stays in Portland longer.

  4. Kay says:

    YES! YES!! YES!!!

  5. JP says:

    YES… Please make her a series regular.

  6. Isobel says:

    Apparently she and Juliette start emailing each other, though that may not be the reason she returns to Portland

    Maybe she helps Adeline get out of her sticky situation

    I think she is coming back to work with the captain. She figured out that he’s colluding with the revolutionaries, and is trying to figure out what side she should take in this battle.

    Did they ever explain what the key was for? The captain was all about it in season 1 and I can’t remember if they said what it did. Didn’t all the rings together make a map?

    Man, she’s a mean lookin’ lady.

  11. charlie says:

    I was never totally convinced she is nicks mother. She could be the other woman who was supposedly killed in the car wreck with his father. Nick didnt seem to recognize her right away.
