Behind the Screens with Joshua Maloni
Royals, a shaman and zombies.
Part two of "Grimm's" season finale promises to be action-packed, as Nick (David Giuntoli), Hank (Russell Hornsby), Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), Rosalee (Bree Turner) and, yes, Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) battle new breeds of evil forces in Portland.
Turner recently spoke with BTS and friends, offering some clues on what fans can expect from tonight's episode.
"Well, seeing the finale script, it was just truly - I don't know what more they could have put in this script," she said. "I mean everyone - every storyline gets blown out and exposed, resolved, challenged, you know? And then just the level of production value in this finale - I mean, it's like feature film-quality stuff that we did in terms of effects and story and set (and) environment. I mean, it was all just, really, at the top of our game, I felt. And it was - we were all kind of chomping at the bit to start production on this last one."
This final fight is not the typical wesen-of-the-week encounter. No, when this epic battle ends, one of our heroes might not make it to season three.
"Someone's life is definitely in balance, and it's very, very, very scary to be this person, I will say," Turner said. "And I honestly don't know how we're going to resolve it in terms of storyline. It's - I'm nervous and excited about how season three is going to begin with this cliffhanger, because it's pretty major."
Undoubtedly, "Grimm" fans will analyze the season finale, ponder different resolutions for the next season, and exchange show tidbits throughout the summer. This is, after all, a sci-fi series.
Turner said she appreciates the uniqueness of this genre's admirers.
"Well, the support and love and loyalty from these - the genre fans are like nothing I've ever experienced," she said. "I've only done a few other sort of jobs in this world and - but nothing like this, I think, at the scale of 'Grimm.' And so I've been blown away with how committed and supportive and protective our fans are over the characters and the show. And it's just been really awesome."
"Grimm" airs tonight at 10 p.m., following "The Voice," on NBC.
