More of the Resistance
The cast is really excited about the Resistance storyline, and they believe fans feel the same way — especially when it comes to “hottie patottie” Meisner (Damien Puckler).
“I like the stuff with the Resistance actually. It adds an interesting element of bringing them over from Europe and seeing how they may be able to help him out in Portland maybe,” Bitsie Tulloch says. “I think that’s a storyline that people have really responded to, and our showrunners to date have proven that they are really responsive and amenable to the fans.”
Bree Turner also says she would love to see Rosalee explore more her connection to the Resistance and the Wesen Council.
“The domestic thing is really fun and it adds another seasoning, a very unique thing,” Silas Weir Mitchell adds. “But on the other hand it would be nice, I think, to maybe get more into either the crime-fighting element, the legal side of things with Nick, or with a Verrat and the resistance side of things.”
Conflict within the Scooby Squad
“Maybe it might be nice, now that we’re all so cozy and all in bed together, that we start to have more conflict about our association with the Grimm and our loyalty to [him],” Turner suggests.
Mitchell adds, “I think they should resurrect that a little bit. The same way they brought back the scene where we come up with the sunglasses idea, I think that would be good because it might be too easy now. … People ask me, ‘What do you think would be interesting to explore?’ And just the idea of real anger or sadness or betrayal, because things have been pretty hunky dory.”
He notes, “It’s important to maintain the authenticity of the idea that these alliances are brand new. They’re not tenuous because they’re established; there’s trust, but as far as the rest of the world is concerned, they’re very, very unaccepted, and that can manifest in conflict between the two players.”
“I think it’s more interesting for him to go right up to the line and then deal with that. I think that’s a lot more fun and seeing him be wowed by all that’s going on around him versus him being included into the knowledge of all of these creatures,” Russell Hornsby admits. “For storytelling, I think it’s just more exciting that the doesn’t know. That’s conflict. That’s a lot more interesting.”
“Grimm” Season 4 will premiere on NBC in fall 2014.
