| This article has been nominated for rewriting|
Reason: Needs lots of updates and some clean up. Descriptions can be expanded to add context. Remove calendars, double check dates for episodes. Character deaths should be added. Big events from episodes can be added other than just when the episode takes place. Terms such as "we" should not go in the description of what happens on a date. Many dates for episodes need ranges for how many days the episode took place. Not just one day (either start or end day). Add events mentioned/seen in Grimm diaries, Rosalee's books, etc. History of the keys (being hidden/found)
Please remove this notice when the rewrite is completed.

Based on Wu's comment the following morning that the concert is scheduled for "Saturday" rather than "today," the November date is incorrect. Nick meets Bud.

|December 8-11, 2011||"Let Your Hair Down" occurs before Christmas, as indicated by Monroe's decorating. Monroe celebrates Thanksgiving, so this must be in December. The moon is full on the third night, which is December 10th. Bud and his friends spy on Nick's home on December 9th.|
|January-February, 2012||"Game Ogre" spans three days (night to morning). "Of Mouse and Man" spans three (night to night). "Organ Grinder" spans four days (night to night). Lack of Christmas decoration in Monroe's home indicates it's no longer December.|

|March 23-24, 2013||In "Nameless", the date in the solution to the Sudoku puzzle is March 12th at 7:15 PM, so it's after this date that the deaths occurred. Jenna Marshall acts like this was some time ago, since she can't recall the details when confronted with the puzzle. Renard's Confidant says that he is supposed to be in Venice for the weekend, so the last two weekends in March are 23-24 & 30-31. The episode ends after two nights.|
|March 25-27, 2013||The flashback reads "6 months ago" as "One Angry Fuchsbau" starts. Cut to "Today", which picks up the morning after "Nameless" ends; with Nick discussing last night's conversation with Monroe about Juliette wanting to see the trailer. The episode spans 3 full days.|
|April 19, 2013||"Volcanalis" starts. The date from the video Jill Prembrey made at Mount Hood sets the date.|

- A trailer released during the off-season indicates only six months occurred between "Pilot" and "Woman in Black".
- The intro to "Bad Teeth" indicates 8 months passed from "Pilot" to "Woman in Black".
- Dates shown on props throughout season 1 span 13 months, showing starting dates in September 2011 and ending dates in October 2012, though the dialogue and plot elements push the end date forward to a better-supported ending date in late July 2012. ("Three Coins in a Fuchsbau") ("Woman in Black") ("Bad Moon Rising")
- "Danse Macabre" shows a date in November followed by a date in September.
- "Woman in Black" shows October dates in July.
- A printed article that Woden has about Nick in "The Wild Hunt" shows that the events of "Organ Grinder" ended on December 16, 2011, but "Game Ogre" and "Of Mouse and Man" take place after Christmas.
- Renard's phone said "Fugitive" was taking place on January 6, 2017 (the day the episode aired), even though at that point the episode was taking place only hours after the end of "The Beginning of the End" which ended early on May 21, 2016.
