Exactly how Cathey’s character fits into NBC’s Portland-based fairytale is unclear; we do know his Baron Samedi is a “curious stranger” who’ll be around for the final two episodes of Season 2.

Cathey’s TV credits include Oz, Law & Order: SVU and the Netflix original series House of Cards.

Might Baron Samedi be an actual baron… as in royalty? As in the Royals? As in… Capt. Renard better get his stuff together, and fast? UPDATE: Thanks to a voodoo-versed commenter, we now know that Baron Samedi is a legend of Loa lore. Regardless, hit the comments with your thoughts!

    I wonder if he’ll play someone with connection to the Royal Family that has a connection to Renard?

    • Ashley says:

      maybe or he could be another grimm ……wonder if he knows nick’s mom anyhow i’ve seen the wire that show was really good on HBO welcome to the grimm world!

  2. Baron Samedi is a being from voodoo lore.

    • What Michael said. He’s the Loa of the dead and is commonly associated with both the “Grim Reaper” like role of voudoun or, because he is also a giver of life, healing wounds and disease. He also makes sure that the dead stay dead and don’t come back as zombies.

      Expect the show’s budget for top hats to go up a bit for this one.

    Seriously!?! Are we already talking about the season ending? Grimm just started back up! It should be on all year!.

    • alex says:

      actually it’s just come back from a mid season break, this isn’t a new season but the remainder of the current season, the finale isn’t that far away. The new season will likely be in september.

      • Mel says:

        I know, I know – as a huge Grimm fan, I DID watch it starting last fall, but the break was sooo long it “seems” like a new season. Why is everyone so literal??? It was just a commentary on the fact we just got it back. Sheesh…

    • I agree with you Mel. Grimm DID just come back on. I cannot wait until Friday nights to watch it. I always record the Friday night episode and watch it again one night during the week. I also wish it was on all year.
