Reggie gives HollywoodLife.com a look into the future of ‘Grimm,’ and you Wu-n’t believe what happens!
After a harrowing three-month hiatus, NBC’s Grimm returns at 9 p.m. tonight will all-new episodes; and while most of the upcoming drama will revolve around Nick’s (David Giuntoli) hot mess of a love life, Reggie Lee assures HollywoodLife.com that everyone’s favorite slaphappy sergeant will be there to lighten the mood — and maybe, accidentally, stumble onto a major secret.
“We’re coming back with a bang — a lot of bangs, both literally and figuratively,” according to Reggie, who tells me we can expect plenty of “Wu-liners” and unpredictable moments from his character.
“He’s like the wildcard of the show, they can do whatever they want with him,” he explains. “The one-liners, I tell them to keep bringing them on. With this show, which can get a little dark and scary, you need humor. Monroe certainly carries the bulk of it, but I’d like to think that Wu also contributes to that part of the show.”
OK, let’s focus on that “dark and scary” part for a minute. Reggie admits there’s “a lot to be tied up” as we head into the second half of season two, and he was kind enough to give us a glimpse into how that’s going to happen:
The Moments We’ve All Been Waiting For
“It’s going to come to a head in the first episode back,” Reggie reveals. “The captain finds the trailer, there’s a confrontation between Nick and the Captain, and there’s a pretty heavy sex scene.”
A heavy sex scene? Now that‘s what I call a return!
“We knew it was going to happen, and it took an entire day to get shot,” Reggie says of Renard (Sasha Roiz) and Juliette’s (Bitsie Tulloch) highly anticipated roll in the hay. “We all wanted to be in the bleachers for that one. I can pretty much tell you that Wu wasn’t in it. Unless it was an orgy, he was not in it. I can tell you I’m the first person to the scene after it happens — and there are literally, and figuratively, some cracks in the wall.”
Maybe next time, Wu. Maybe next time.
Wu Stumbles On A Secret
Reggie says the comment he receives most from Grimm fans is that they “can’t wait until Wu finds out” — and it sounds like they might finally be close to getting their wish! Well, sort of.
“I don’t know how long they’re going to carry that on, but on an upcoming episode, I do see some wesen,” Reggie reveals. “And I see them in their true form!”
It’s official, I’ve got chills.
