    Same here. Ended with
    Juliet getting a strange phone call and her asking "who is this?".
    I hope someone makes an episode thread so I can find out.

    BIH, NBC Bastages.

    After she asks "Who is this?", the droning music continues to build.

    The sparks zip around her bed. She looks over the edge of the bed and find that the bed is now suspended in the same type of dark pit as shown earlier in the episode.

    She then retreats back to the center of the bed and gathers the blankets around herself.

    A highly distorted voice then says in the background:

    "I just want you to know the truth. I just want you to know the truth."

    I just padded my Grimm SP, which is the first time I can remember having to do that for a regular network show.

    I also had this issue with Grimm - if you want to watch it is available on Hulu after it starts you can jump to the end to see the last min or so that was cut off.

    The voice became less distored and, to my ear, sounded quite a bit like Nick by the end.

    I think those gaping pits are visual representations of the holes in her memory and she's starting to remember; this time she's starting to remember the conversation where Nick told her about the Grimms and Wessen

    Yes, that is exactly what I think is happening. The fact that

    she could walk over the pit and it self healed would represent the memories getting restored.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk, but this has been happening on many shows for a very long time. That's a major reason I got a Premiere 4.. so I could pad as many shows as possible.

    AFAIK, NBC was the one who started this, at least for the broadcast networks.. (with 'er' in the mid-late 90s.. started a minute or more early, and the schedule didn't show it). All shows on various networks (History, Discovery, E!) have to be padded one minute late, or you miss the very ending, which goes a small fraction of a minute over the hour.

    Wow, I suspect you're either lucky, or don't watch much regular network TV… esp NBC on Thursdays.

    No, I watch tons of network TV. But (at least in this market) the shows generally start and stop like a metronome. Until Grimm the past couple of weeks.

    There have been times in the past when people have complained about shows getting cut off and I haven't had the same problem. I suspect my local network affiliates are just really good at keeping things exactly on schedule.

    But this seems to be a much wider problem.

    I am well aware of this. I have to pad the beginning of The Simpsons, and the end of Modern Family.
    But Grimm has not needed padding until now.
    You have to agree that this sort of thing is irritating when it happens where it didn't happen before, right?

    That explanation makes a lot of sense.

    The electricity sparks could be her synapses regenerating themselves

    Indeed, that was my thought too.

    Yes, I definitely agree, that's why I default to having padding until I "prove" it doesn't need it or I have a conflict.. though it can start needing padding again like in this case.

    Wow, just watched the VERY ending on nbc.com (hey, they only made me "watch" (mute computer) two sets of commercials, not one for every 'break' I try to skip like some sites), and wow, I did miss an important bit.. I had thought it ended with the main dude (I'm bad with names) on the floor.

    This happen on my cable DVR also, so it was not the TiVo. I now pad Grimm. It starting to reach the point where everything need to be padded. :p
