Take a sneak peek at the Yahoo article.
“We knew we wanted to send Nick and Monroe out of the country on this quest together… ,” Kouf explains before Greenwalt jumps in to add, “Because they were our original two guys.” Kouf continues, “And that brought it around full circle. We had been dying to go to Germany from the get go.” (Unfortunately for them and the actors that did not translate into a location shoot as only exteriors were shot in the land of schnitzel and sausage.)
Their journey will come to a successful end in “Schwarzwald” and the tucked-away treasure will be recovered in that hole the characters fell into at the end of the last episode. “Huge surprise. It’s a Volkswagen, a really old one,” Greenwalt jokes. Kouf continues the bit, “And it morphs into Herbie.” Then Greenwalt delivers the punchline, “And everyone figures out we’ve been making a Disney show all along.”
All kidding aside, they were serious about revealing the spoils of war. “The answer is in real history,” Greenwalt says. “If you know a little bit about the Crusades and Constantinople and what was there, then you could probably figure it out. The answer has been there all along.”
And just as the legend promised, it is a biggie and its locating will have major consequences. Greenwalt teases, “The good thing is the story keeps morphing. What they discover at the end of the 100th episode opens up a lot of new doors and introduces more questions and possibilities so it actually allows us to explore a whole other universe of ideas. There is lots of chaos coming. Nobody is safe.”
