Grimm's Sasha Roiz Previews Capt. Renard's Baby Revelation, Tees Up Season 3's Big Bad

Grimm Season 3 Spoilers Sasha RoizGrimm‘s Sasha Roiz has a theory about how his character, Capt. Sean Renard, fits in the myriad duties of running the Portland police department and his affairs as a half-Hexenbiest royal bastard in exile.

“I often imagine he’s a character that just never sleeps,” Roiz tells TVLine, laughing. “When would you have time? He just worries. It’s a huge responsibility.”

Those worries look like they’re about to increase exponentially: In this Friday’s episode (NBC, 9/8c), per the official synopsis, “Captain Renard makes a startling realization about the possible identities of the royal baby’s parents.”

“You see it quickly play out in his mind, the sheer panic of it all,” Roiz says. “Once he receives the information, things start to move much quicker. He springs to action.”

Enter Adalind, Renard’s newly re-Hexenbiested possible baby mama, whom Roiz notes that his “masochistic” character could have killed on several occasions – “and I chose not to.”

He continues: “The more of a thorn in [Renard’s] side that she is, the more that she plays this chess game, the more excited he gets.”

But given the royal power vacuum that his half-brother Eric’s death created, Sean won’t have much time for romance – even a twisted one – anytime soon. Lest we forget, Angel alum Alexis Denisof is poised to begin a multi-episode arc as Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf, a royal cousin whom Roiz deems “the Big Bad this year.”

Might Viktor offer the out-for-himself exile a way back into the royals’ good graces? And if so, would he take it?

The royals “definitely understand that that’s very alluring to him,” the actor notes. “It’s one thing that’s missing from his life… that idea of belonging and having that sense of family, which was stripped away from him. They know how to play that and manipulate that.”

In the meantime, Renard’s closest ally appears to be Nick – that icy interaction in the last episode notwithstanding.

“I think we’re like, what do you call it? Enablers,” Roiz says, chuckling. “There’s a tacit understanding that we are not going to get very far without one another. So let’s just grin and bear it. Sometimes it’s good, and we actually have some levity, and other times it’s very adversarial.”

Nick’s moving-out party at Monroe’s, for instance. After all of the teamwork in the season’s first two episode, Roiz watched the episode and felt a pang at his absence from the scene.

“For a second, I was like, ‘Oh.’ I was a little hurt by that” he jokes. “I was like, ‘Is it so hard to invite the captain? It would be such a big deal to send the guy a text, maybe just make him feel included?!”

    I think its fitting: the one Royal that doesn’t belong to the family and the Grimm that doesn’t quite belong. In a way, they validate one another within their own structure in the police department. The wesen community is aware of them, most Portland detectives are aware of them and now the family is also aware of them.

  2. TvPeong says:

    I wondered why captain wasn’t at the moving out party. They had all formed a sort of alliance that included the captain.

    • Aimee says:

      Yes but alliance does not equal friendship. Just because you agree to work with someone doesn’t mean you like them or trust them. Right now the Captain is a necessary evil that Nick must work with but he certainly doesn’t have to invite him to any parties.

      • KCC says:

        Poor Captain! The gang kinda bonded with him over keeping the Nick-killing-a-guy secret, but I guess it’s not enough. He’s so lonely.

    • Linda says:

      Why in the world would the Captain be invited to the party? I think it’s pretty safe to say that nobody in that group really trusts him. They are working with him because they have to not because they want to. And let’s not forget the whole reason Nick had to move out in the first place is because of what happened between Juliette and the Captain. Yes, I know it wasn’t his fault but it still happened and….you know, awkward!

  3. Alex says:

    I’m sure the Captain has a lot of schemes going on right now. While it may be lower down on the list right now I’m pretty sure he has plans for dealing with a certain Grimm in the future. Nick better watch out if Renard ever gets back with the Royal Family.

  4. Liz says:

    Grimm was never better than when the whole team was working together and Juliette & Rosalee were able to contribute to the goal.
    That said, I’m really excited to see Roiz and Denisof chew some scenery together. Hopefully it will be delightfully wicked

  5. sarah says:

    i love the whole group working together, hope the captin works more with them this year
