Bitsie Tulloch dishes on a highly anticipated showdown

Fans of NBC’s Grimm have a lot to be excited about. Season four has served up some incredible storylines, one being Juliette’s (Bitsie Tulloch) unexpected transformation into a Hexenbiest. Juliette’s decision to confide in Capt. Sean Renard and keep her beau, Nick, in the dark about her new “identity” is a hot topic among fans of the show.

We got the chance to chat with Tulloch about Juliette’s reason for keeping her secret from Nick and a highly anticipated upcoming showdown between Juliette and a certain blond Hexenbiest.

BITSIE TULLOCH: I think it makes sense. I think her gut reaction is, she knows Nick’s mortal enemy is the Hexenbiest, and he’s a Grimm and now she’s a Hexenbiest. She doesn’t even want to look at him because she can’t control it. She doesn’t know what’s going on; she doesn’t know when she’s going to morph. So she needed to go to somebody who had the same affliction, so to speak—and the only person who really understood her is Sean Renard. And they have a little bit of a history because of everything that happened in season two with the love triangle, and they’re close enough that she would go to him.

Also, she wanted to go to him anyway, because she’s sort of blaming him indirectly because it was his mother who set the ball rolling on this whole issue with the Hexenbiest. [Renard’s mom] is the one who did the spell, and she had warned Juliette and everybody else that there might be side effects. But obviously Juliette would never have ever done this if she had known she was going to turn into a Hexenbiest. She did it because she thought her lover, Nick, would be happier getting his powers back, and she also did it more immediately because Rosalee and Monroe were being threatened. But at the end of the day, it just completely uprooted her entire existence. She doesn’t even know who she is anymore. So she goes to Sean being like, “Your mom did this, call her and have her fix this.”

    There is no GOOD reason for Juliette to go to Sean before going to Nick. This is kindergarten mentality. As with illness, financial issues, relationship challenges…you always go to your partner first. Nick didn’t tell Juliette about his Grimmness, which lead to a domino effect of negative repercussions for many cast members….Juliette included. To go to Sean first when Nick doesn’t fully trust him, when Juliette may be subject to his royal decrees (he certainly lorded it over the other Hexenbiests, Wesen, and Reapers) and to the Wesen Council isn’t believable, not if the writers want to keep Nick and Juliette together. The writers were pretty clumsy here…as they have been with a lot of the relationships on the show. I’d also like to see the writers do something wonderful with the humans on the show to show you don’t have to have special powers to be special or make a difference. In fantasy and sci-fi, humans are either depicted as weak and in need of a hero, as part of a mob, or as expendable. Do something really creative, Grimm writers, and develop strong human characters on this show.

      The problem with your opinion IZZY is that after everything Juliette as sacrificed for Nick he never should have walked out. He didn’t even say I love you on his voice message to her. That’s kind of jerkish on Nick’s part. She should stay a Hexenbiest. I hope the writers don’t turn her back!

    Why doesn’t Nick cure Juliette by simply giving her some of his blood? After all, that’s how he removed the hexenbiest from Adalind. Also, Nick hasn’t even considered killing Renard, just because he is a hexenbiest. So, why all the drama about killing Juliette? Renard has proven to be an asset as a half-hexenbiest – so shouldn’t Juliette prove to be doubly so?
