Warning: Spoilers Ahead
Monroe is safe again. And it’s beyond cool that Wu’s in on the secret. With him on board things are even better. Nick has a new ally he can count on in times of danger. And when Juliette needs to unload her own secret — the one where’s she’s becomeÂ a hexenbiest — she doesn’t turn to Nick. She heads overÂ to Renard’s place. She has to be scared. When the group rescued Monroe, she had success with getting rid of one of the bad guys…permanently. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Juliette and Renard share a scene together. There’s still some chemistry between these two.Â Are we the only ones to think that? No? Yes? Anyway, tonight on NBC, there’sÂ a brand new episode of Grimm. A Sneak Peek:
Synopsis for “Death Do Us Part”: AN ELECTRIFYING HOMICIDE HAS LOCALS THINKING A HOUSE IS HAUNTED â€“ GARCELLE BEAUVAIS GUEST STARS â€“ Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) are finally off on their honeymoon, but that doesnâ€™t mean trouble isnâ€™t stirring in Portland. Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) are called to a shocking homicide at an abandoned residence many Portland locals think is haunted, even the survivors swear a ghost committed the murder. Meanwhile, on the heels of Julietteâ€™s (Bitsie Tulloch) startling revelation Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz) seeks the help of a mystical woman (guest star Garcelle Beauvais) from his past. Silas Weir Mitchell, Reggie Lee and Bree Turner also star.
Another sneak peek:
TV Goodness recently took part in a press call that featured Captain Renard himself, Sasha Roiz. Some of the topics discussed: Juliette’s Hexenbiest-iality; what’s ahead for the royal captain; and the potential for future shirtless scenes. The forecast?Â There’s a 100% chance of this situation happening.
Clearly the fact that Juliette isÂ a Hexenbiest is going to cause trouble. “It’s definitely going to create havoc as you could imagine,” said Roiz. “Certainly already has for Juliette and now it slowly will trickle to everyone else. Sheâ€™s come to me in that kind of partnership and assistance is going to be imperative for her to try to understand who she is and how to navigate this uncharted water for her.”
Another reason it might cause friction is the quality time Juliette will be spending with Renard. The two share a complicated history (see season two). “Weâ€™re going to become a little bit closer than I think Renard is comfortable,” Roiz explained. “Far more than heâ€™s comfortable. And itâ€™s going to be interesting to see how we walk this tightrope without falling back into any residual effects of that love potion a few seasons ago. Yes, so itâ€™ll be definitely a fun story line.”
As far as he’s concerned season four has become the season of the Hexenbiest.Â “Itâ€™s a hexen-feast, as I like to call it. Thereâ€™s been my mom, thereâ€™s been myself, Juliette’s transformation, Adalind’s involvement and a lot of sort of magical developments; some good, some bad.”
Roiz feels that Wu being clued into Nick’s Grimm-ness is a good thing. “Itâ€™s really interesting. Itâ€™s nice to have him on board. I like the dynamic as itâ€™s slowly kind of evolving with Wu in the know.”
Now Wu gets to be a bigger part of the action and join the gang as they deal with the various Wesen of the Week. “Itâ€™s fun to have yet another player, and a police officer in it. Because, obviously, we need all the help. As you can see, we need all the help we can get because itâ€™s starting to become unruly and far more than we can handle at this point.”
RegardingÂ Renard’s immediate future, he’s about to face more family drama. “Iâ€™m still having a lot of trouble with members of my family and thereâ€™s a few more coming, some new ones, who are definitely going to make things even more difficult,” he said. “There is an ongoing swell of activity and characters that keep pumping in and out. So absolutely, youâ€™ll be pleasantly surprised by who appears.”
The politics that exist within this highly dysfunctional family will affect Renard’s life big time. “The politics become a lot more heated and the dynamics from the characters, obviously, with Juliette’s new foundÂ [hexenbiest]Â status, this is going to change things for everybody,” Roiz explained. “So Renard gets caught in the middle of all of that and it becomes really difficult for him as the season progresses.”
Something else will cause some complications for his character. Remember how his (very young looking) motherÂ saved his life after her sonÂ was shot? That storyline is about to make a comeback. “My life-saving experience is definitely going to kind of come back and wreakÂ a little havoc for me because itâ€™s not without its residual effects, which youâ€™ll see slowly with Renard suffering from some of those residuals.”
Don’t know what you guys think but it sounds like people should steer clear of Elizabeth’s special brand of spells. They are powerful. They are never simple. And they never work their magic and go away. They are the gift that keeps on giving.
Roiz also teased one other thing. Apparently, there are shirtless scenes on the (beautiful) horizon. Nothing like a little shallow TV alert to brighten up a Grimm fan’s day. The actorÂ talked about being considered a sex symbol.Â “It feels on the one hand very flattering. And on the other hand itâ€™s a tremendous amount of pressure,” he said. “I feel like every day, Iâ€™m like, when am I going to the gym? Like itâ€™s just all about the gym and my caloric intake and itâ€™s all these things, very pressing, much more so than perhaps I would enjoy. But itâ€™s definitely an interesting aspect of the job and Iâ€™ve come to embrace it. Itâ€™s not a bad place to be, certainly in my 40s.”
Grimm airs Fridays at 9/8c on NBC.
