here's a press release for the Grimm episode 2.01:

A FOREIGN AGENDA TO HUNT DOWN NICK IS REVEALED AS THE BODY COUNT IN PORTLAND RISES --BRIAN TEE, JAMES FRAIN AND MARY ELIZABETH MASTRANTONIO GUEST STAR -- After their face-off with Kimura (guest star Brian Tee), Nick (David Giuntoli) finds himself trying to come to grips with the return of his mother, Kelly Burkhardt (guest star Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio). A trail of brutal murders unveils a foreign conspiracy to hunt down Nick, leading to several revelations about his past. Meanwhile, Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) still lies in her mysteriously-induced coma as Rosalee (Bree Turner) and Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) work tirelessly to bring her out of it safely. Elsewhere, Hank (Russell Hornsby) struggles with the shocking truths he’s recently seen and Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz) deals with unexpected family issues when his estranged brother (guest star James Frain) comes back into his life. Reggie Lee also stars.
my thought on this:
Now, why is this a conspiracy? Because Nick didn't know about it? Well, if that's the reason, then who could have told him?
* Monroe's a pretty reliable source thus far, with contacts out the wazoo at times.
* About now, I think Adalind's actually told Nick more about Wesen and Grimms than the Captain has.
* And dear Aunt Marie did her best, given the time limit she was operating under (though not even a cryptic "beware the Verrat"?)
* Rosalee's been a fountain of information, even more-so than Monroe.
