Nick’s undead experience will leave him significantly changed. Until now, Nick has done his best to keep his moral compass pointed squarely in the direction of good, striving to limit any collateral damage or casualties within his community. But the zombie toxin may shift a few things within him.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing in the long run. “It enhances his abilities in various ways,”Kouf explains. “It makes him a little stronger, a little more effective.”
But, Greenwalt adds, “He can’t just walk away from what he did, or from what’s happened to him. You’ll see remnants of this (idea) throughout the season.”
What about Wu? The only member of Nick’s circle who remains unaware of his colleague’s secret, Sgt. Wu (Reggie Lee) has overlooked most of the oddities present in Grimm-related cases because as Greenwalt explains, “he merely thinks that lots of strange things go on in Portland because Portland is weird.” That may change in a Wu-focused episode scheduled to air in the back half of the season that brings the cop in close contact with clues and crimes reminiscent of a childhood monster myth from the Philippines. Kouf and Greenwalt say it’s their creepiest episode yet. But first, let’s see how Wu and the gang wrangle those zombies.
Get ready to meet new Wesen. The world of “Grimm” has a lot of myths and fairy tales from which to draw in order to create new adversaries for Nick. At least seven new creatures will be introduced over the 22-episode third season says Greenwalt, and possibly even more. Among them are Wesen based on the sewer alligators urban legend, which was previously announced, as well as beings Greenwalt describes as “mean, sexy mermaids” and a storyline based on the legend of the Mexican boogeyman known as El Cucuy. Season three also explores the ideas of possession and exorcism as it relates to the Grimm universe.
