Season 3 Spoilers: David Giuntoli Talks His Character’s After-Zombie Effects and More

One of the wishes I have for Season 3 of “Grimm” is for Juliette to get much more involved in the action. In fact, I even hoped for her to get a chance to save Nick. While the latter of the two wishes may not come true, it seems I will get the first one.

“Juliette’s role becomes so much better in Season 3,” David Giuntoli said in a recent interview with “We just filmed an episode where she absolutely takes charge and goes crazy violent on these horrible perpetrators. She gets to be so much more active. She knows what’s going on. She’s in on the secret, and she uses her veterinary skills and moxie to really help out Team Grimm.”

Juliette may have to save Nick, not from Wesen, but eventually from himself. Nick is currently still in some sort of Zombie state. His heart rate won’t go up even when he’s increasing his exercise. For some reason, Juliette seems to be more concerned about Nick’s health than he is.

“What is going on there? You can never fully undo the undead zombie portion of your past. It comes back every now and again,” Giuntoli tells TVLine. “There are some side effects. You can’t just completely wipe it out. I kind of go dead every now and again. Maybe it’s going to be one of my super powers. It’s not unlike the possum: I just go dead in moments of fear. I’m collecting small, maybe they’re super powers? Some would see them as weaknesses. But Grimms use them to their advantage.”

According to the preview for Friday’s episode, Team Grimm is going to go up against a mermaid who may have the ability to turn men into scary looking fish people. (Sounds fun.) How will she be stopped?

“Grimm” airs Fridays at 9/8c on NBC. Check out Giuntoli’s full interview with TVLine here.

Season 3 Spoilers: Sharon Leal Cast as Hank’s Potential Love Interest

NBC series “Grimm” has added another character to its supernatural cast of characters.

Sharon Leal has been cast as a physical therapist and a potential love interest for Hank (Russell Hornsby), TVLine confirms.

Leal will appear in multiple episodes in season three as the therapist, who goes by the name of Zuri Ellis. When the season opens, Ellis will have spent two months helping Hank heal his broken ankle. Her character is described as “smart, beautiful and mysterious,” meaning Hank may want to have more than a strictly professional relationship with the healthcare pro.

The big question remains: will she be Wesen? Series co-creators David Greenwalt and James Kouf told TVLine that Hank would get involved with a fairytale creature in season three. But Greenwalt said, “There’ll be some kind of romantic thing with Hank. We’re not sure if it’s going to be a Wesen girlfriend or not.”

Leal portrayed Michelle in the 2006 movie adaptation of “Dreamgirls.” She has also appeared on “Guiding Light,” “Boston Public,” “Hellcats” and “Private Practice.” She also acted with Hornsby in a 2011 episode of “Suits.”

Grimm” will also feature new monsters and more monster feuds in its third season.

Kouf and Greenwalt told TVLine that upcoming episodes will feature “alligators in the sewer” and “a reemergence of the Bauerschwein-Blutbad feud.” In one episode, Sergeant Wu (Reggie Lee) will collide with the Wesen world, in what is to be one of the most frightening scenes yet.

The creature he encounters is “something so creepy that the last thing that creepy was the fly episode,” Greenwalt revealed. “This is right on par with that.”

TVLine also confirms that Greenwalt has recruited Alexis Denisof to join the show’s third season. Greenwalt worked with Denisof on the show “Angel.” Denisof will join the fairytale thriller to play Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf, Renard’s (James Frain) astute first cousin.

Manny Montana of “Graceland” is also joining the series to guest star as David Florez, a hotheaded ex-Marine who served in Afghanistan. Montana’s Florez suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, an ailment suffered by many vets.

TVLine also reports that Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) will be getting hitched in season three. Viewer’s saw the pair’s romance simmer in season two. Yet, it will be difficult for the pair to explain the impending nuptials to their families, seeing as they are two very different creatures. (Monroe is a wolf-like Blutbad and Rosalee is a fox-like Fuchsbau).

Greenwalt and Kouf said that Nick’s (David Giuntoli) zombie-like stay in the box, which was shown in the season two finale, will make him “dangerous.” So when Nick wakes up, he will be in a very different frame of mind.

Grimm‘s third season premieres on October 25 on NBC.

Bitsie Tulloch Talks Romance, Zombies & Shirtless Rage

Actress Bitsie Tulloch dished on spoilers for Season 3 of her series “Grimm” Thursday night in a podcast interview with me on The Queen of Scream. What can fans expect in the season to come, which starts October 25?

Well, let’s take inventory: Juliette won’t end up the show strumpet with any more cast hook-ups, the Scooby gang is complete, and we can expect more “shirtless rage,” but not necessarily from Capt. Renard.

Tulloch confirmed that we probably shouldn’t expect any more love triangles or dalliances from Juliette, who merely acted out of the effects of the love potion she was under last season. So it looks like Nick and Juliette will have different battles to face this time around, starting with where we left off at the end of last season with a zombie apocalypse. And Nick being turned into a zombie.

Yeah, I think that’s enough trouble for now for the two.

But she’s definitely excited about getting a chance to be part of the “Scooby gang”… obviously filling the Daphne role.

“I’ve been really excited to be part of the Scooby squad and I’ve been having a blast with David just shooting scenes where our characters can actually finally talk about Wesen, and it’s, for her, learning this new dialogue and kind of a dictionary of various creatures.”

Tulloch also commented on how close the cast has become, going out to movies as a group and even working out together. The working out part was pretty apparent last season during a rather notorious scene when Capt. Renard (Sasha Roiz) drank a purification potion that induced a rage… a rage that made him just rip his shirt off.

Aforementioned incident has now become known as “shirtless rage.” And the demographics showed a surge in female viewership. Can we expect more beefcake this season?

“The showrunners are aware of how much the fans loved the ‘shirtless rage’ scene, so I’m sure we’ll probably see more of that , but then also you might see a little shirtless rage in other characters!”

As a woman, I can only hope she means David Giuntoli or Russell Hornsby, and not herself or Bree Turner.
