Take a sneak peek at the TVLine interview.
TVLINE | Where do we pick up with Juliette as the premiere begins?
Juliette was kind of feeling like she got Nick back, and then she loses him again when there’s this sort of zombie invasion. She’s toughened up really, really quick; she’s just like, “I’ll be damned if I’m going to lose him again. I just got him back, I just started remembering him.” [She and the gang] are pretty much dead-set on figuring out a way to rescue Nick before he either dies or turns into a zombie and it’s irreversible.
[The episode] directly picks up where the finale ended. At first, it’s Monroe and Rosalie and Juliette trying to run around the container yard and see if they can figure out what happened to him. It’s definitely high drama, it feels a little more like a movie. The first two [episodes], there’s a lot going on. We had more stunt doubles then we’d ever had, there were a lot of background zombies and the story’s just really cool… The premiere is going to have a little cliffhanger going into Episode 2, because [the gang is] running out of time.
TVLINE | Let’s talk about Adalind: As we come into the episode, we know she’s working with Stephania, she’s basically thrown over Frau Pech, and the things she has to do in these first couple episodes are truly disgusting.
Yes, it’s really gnarly, even to describe. Our special effects makeup team, run by Barney [Burman], they made an entire Frau Pech body, and so, yeah, it’s disemboweled, it’s chopped up. Her body is made into a stew, for lack of a better word… We’re using the whole Frau Pech in order to make my body prepared to get these powers back… I’m selling the baby to Stephania in order to get her knowledge and learn what to do to get those powers back.
