'Biestfight! Grimm's Bitsie Tulloch and Claire Coffee Preview Juliette and Adalind's Long-Awaited Brawl

Grimm Season 4 Spoilers Bitsie Tulloch Claire Coffee

In this corner: A bruising blonde ‘Biest with a baby on the lam and a belly full of hatred!

And in this corner: A bellicose brunette ‘Biest with uncontrollable rage and a years-long grudge simmering inside her!

And when Grimm‘s two Hexenbiestly beauties finally face off in Friday’s episode (NBC, 9/8c), “If it’s not the craziest fight we’ve done on Grimm, it’s probably one of two,” star Bitsie Tulloch says.

TVLine recently took part in a media visit to the series’ Portland set, where Tulloch and co-star Claire Coffee previewed just how monstrous Friday night’s fisticuffs will get.

Grimm Season 4 Spoilers Bitsie Tulloch Juliette“It took an entire day to shoot this one fight,” Tulloch says, sitting in a quiet part of the set that normally stands in for a posh hotel room. “And it’s something that they had to do really well and do it big, because this is something the fans have been begging for four seasons.”

Stunt doubles stood in for both actresses during shooting of the throwdown — which is probably for the best, considering Coffee is now visibly pregnant with her first child.

“I think for everybody’s sake, including the show’s insurance policy, it’s better we didn’t actually [fight],” she says, laughing during a break in filming an upcoming episode. “I’m excited, mostly just to see how it’s all cut together.”

Grimm Season 4 Preview Claire Coffee AdalindWhile watching their stand-ins (Mallory Thompson for Juliette and Helena Barrett for Adalind) go through the moves, Coffee says, she was in awe. “I was just like, ‘I can’t! These girls aren’t human!’ They’re such badasses.”

Tulloch cautions that, although Juliette’s new power is considerable, it’s also uncontrollable — at least, for the moment.

“Right now, when she’s doing stuff and making stuff fly or making stuff break or killing people, she’s not doing it on purpose. She’s just angry, and these are the side effects of what’s going on,” the actress says.

That loose-cannon nature means Dr. Silverton remains hesitant to tell the love of her life about her recent, possibly irrevocable (?) change.

“She doesn’t totally understand what’s going on, but she knows enough about this world that Hexenbiests are basically the mortal enemies of Grimms,” Tulloch adds. “She’s scared that [Nick is] either going to kill her, or she could kill him.”

Then there’s the small matter of Capt. Renard, who has a complicated, intimate connection to both of the women.

In an upcoming scene, Coffee previews, Adalind finds out that Juliette and Renard have been conferring about her new powers… and the O.H. (original hexenbiest) doesn’t like that one bit.

“That stings in that high school way of, ‘Wait a minute, you’re my captain to toy with. That’s not fair!,'” Coffee says, smiling. “I do think that she feels slighted, for sure, by that.”

So which ‘Biest will best the other? “The only thing I’ll say without giving away the outcome is that the Hexenbiests that are made, like Juliette, are more powerful than the ones that are just born that way,” Tulloch says.

Adalind, consider yourself warned.

    That episode I have to see. 2 hexenbiests fighting should be memorable!!

  2. TVPeong says:

    Captain Renard is totally to blame for Adalind. He used her to do his dirty work in the beginning and just cast her aside. Then he helped steal their baby and give it to someone else.

  3. The Kaibosh says:

    ding-ding

  4. TVPeong says:

    Juliette should tell Nick. At this point he has more Wesen friends than human (?) friends. He’ll be fine. And even if he’s not fine with it, she shouldn’t care. Juliette is only in this pickle because she had to take the potion to make Nick a Grimm again. He should be apologizing to her.

    • Brian Bauer says:

      Yeah, I don’t understand the whole “If he finds out, he’ll kill you angle”. Nick tries to be a cop first and a Grimm second. Why would he just through out that philosophy and kill someone unprovoked? Especially, the love of his life.

      • topoopon says:

        Especially because he hasn’t killed the Captain,Renard’s mother or even Adalind herself!!!!

        • Alichat says:

          This! This so much! I loathe loathe loathe this whole “if he finds out, he’ll kill me” bull. After everything they’ve been through, why would he do that to her of all people? And once he finds out, then we’ll have the whole “why didn’t you trust me? Why would you think I’d hurt you?” drama. Ugh…

          • gilof says:

            I don’t understand… They already know how to cure it by taking away her powers.. Why not just do it again and get this over with…

          • Alichat says:

            Well, Henrietta told her that there is no way to cure her. She wasn’t born hexenbiest, so taking away the powers the same way doesn’t work. At least, that is what they wanted the audience to think after she met with Henrietta. However, after last night’s episode, I don’t trust Henrietta at all, so I don’t believe it’s not reversible.

    • Lisa Anglim says:

      I can’t wait. Juliette, nick loves her her and has friends that are wesin. As long as they aren’t killing him or other people, he will understand. It might take him a while, but he’ll come around

  5. Gee says:

    Why didn’t Juliet just tell Nick? Then she could have drank his blood or whatever he did to make Adalind lose her powers before. (Unless I totally missed an explanation on the show on why this won’t work.) But that probably won’t happen now that she realizes how much power she has.

    • Rook says:

      That’s what I said, just drink his blood. But it’s an easy way out and it creates now drama, so I have a feeling Juliette will be to powerful and it won’t effect her or she decides she wants to be a hexenbeist.

    • John NYC says:

      There are apparently differences between an original and a created hexenbiest, so Juliette might not be susceptible to Nick’s blood.

  6. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    I think Juliette is going to tell Nick this time now that she’ll be facing off w/ that bitch Adalind. Juliette is gonna give her a MAJOR beat down cause it seems that she’s way more stronger and angrier time for some pay back……can’t wait!

  7. Amy says:

    So if Juliette stays a hexenbeist and she tells Nick, if they had a kid would it be an uber powerful grimm/hexenbeist combo? Is that what we are in store for? Another 2nd gen kid?

  8. uk-usa-tvaddict says:

    Looking at the pictures of Adalind and Juliette it completely explains why the didn’t make Juliette’s hair white when she is a hexenbeast. I have been thinking about it for a few weeks now. Clearly we couldn’t tell them apart if they both voged and had white hair.

  9. Tyler says:

    Why can’t Juliette drink Nicks blood, so she will become human again? Does nobody remember that’s what Nick did to Adalind back in the time to get rid of her hexenbiest powers? Anyone?

  10. kandy says:

    Juliette and Adeline showdown was great! Soooo glad Juliette kicked her butt.

  11. jazzi92 says:

    not another baby please… what are they going to do now, a new baby every season ? seriously … give it a break and wrap up the first baby plot first :P

  12. Mukasa says:

    I just saw this episode & loved it, Juliette walloped Adiland’s behind. the writers shd maintain her new powers, she’s better this way than a weak crying human.

  13. ROY PESTA says:

    Love how its going, and love woo and his cool comments when stuffs going down

  14. Veronica Rodriguez says:

    Wow possibly the best fight scene ever. I can’t wait for the next episode. Sitting on tenterhooks and can barely breathe. Please hurry Friday and get here

  15. Essie says:

    The fight between Adalind and Juliette was epic!! Can’t wait for next episode!

  16. debbie says:

    One of the best fight scenes…you couldn’t tell there were stand-ins. I absolutely loved it…this is by far one of my most favorite shows. Keep the writing coming!!!

  17. tsevca says:

    Yeah, because that would be typical Nick, he would go and kill a woman he loves, no questions. Right…

    P. S.: Claire is pregnant and they didn´t use it? That would be some revenge if they did.
