I’ve added HQ episode stills from the next two new episodes. Hope y’all enjoy!
Let’s face it: What when it comes to “Grimm” is not twisted in one way or another? This is a show that tends to spin fairy tales and non-fairy tales into something insane, and this looks to be happening all over again with the upcoming April 3 installment entitled “Heartbreaker.” NBC, in their short tease for this episode, claims that this is a take on the classic Frog Prince story. However, let’s just say that this one has a much more tragic ending to it, and Nick and Hank are called in order to piece together what happened.
If you want to see some more news in terms of what to expect, be sure to check out the official synopsis for this episode right away:
“A cyclist’s homicide introduces Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) to a Wesen with a tragic fatal touch. Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz) and Adalind (Claire Coffee) learn the Royals have stepped up their efforts to find their child, and another member of the Royal family (guest star Nico Evers-Swindell) is introduced. Meanwhile, Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) ponders the idea of embracing what she’s become as opposed to fighting it.”
Good for Juliette! Clearly, there is no real escaping what is happening to her right now, and embracing this may be much better for her in the end than any alternative.
Ultimately, we’re perhaps most excited at the moment in seeing more of these Royals, and what they are going to ultimately mean to the end of the season. This is something that seems to be setting up for more than a few big surprises at the end of the season. We’ll just have to figure out whether or not we’re right with this.
Inside one of the vast Northwest Portland warehouse spaces used as shooting stages for “Grimm,” Sasha Roiz is in bed.
Temporary, low-rise walls create a sort of cubicle effect, as Roiz, in character as Portland Police Captain Sean Renard, is surprised by a visitor to his bedroom.
Co-star Bitsie Tulloch, who plays Juliette Silverton, and Roiz rehearse their lines. The director calls for the camera to roll, and the actors play the scene. Juliette bursts into Renard’s room, and the two have a heated exchange. They go through the scene a few more times, until the director calls cut, and Roiz and Tulloch take a break.
Onscreen life is one stressful thing after another for the “Grimm” characters, who contend with supernatural creatures, a power-mad European royal family, ancient keys, and Portland’s ever-unpredictable weather.
But on an early February visit to the “Grimm” set, the stars are all smiles. There’s no mystery about why: just the day before, the “Grimm” cast and crew got the good news that NBC renewed the set and filmed-in-Portland for a fifth season.
On this day, “Grimm” life is good.
“We’re so excited,” Tulloch says. “We didn’t expect to get the renewal announcement this early.”
