A ruthless and sophisticated new Wesen is heading to Portland when NBC’s “Grimm” returns this fall for its fourth season. Have a look at Octo-Man, who puts a target on Trubel’s back and by all accounts is quite the slimy fellow!
Per TV Guide, the GedÃ¤chtnis Esser (aka Octo-Man) is a nefarious new Wesen who can attach his tentacles to your head and steal all your memories, leaving you either dead or with severe amnesia.
“This guy is… a high-tech spy who is involved with some highly placed military intelligence personnel,” says series co-creator David Greenwalt. Though Octo-Man will claim many victims, he specifically targets the feisty new Grimm in town, Trubel (Jacqueline Toboni), and that, notes Greenwalt, “will leave her in a very dire state.”
As you may recall, the Season 3 finale ended with Det. Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) losing his superpowers. When the show returns (on Friday, October 24th), how will he and girlfriend Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) be coping with things?
“For Juliette, it’s been no fun being in love with a Grimm â€” in fact, it’s nonstop stress and constant risk,” notes co-creator Jim Kouf. “Would it be so bad if Nick didn’t get his powers back? It’s like asking Superman, ‘If you had the choice, would you stop being a superhero, marry Lois Lane, and live normally â€” and happily ever after â€” in Kansas?'”
We’re pretty sure that won’t be the case for Nick; otherwise, there’s be no show! Rest assured we’ll have more for you following the “Grimm” panel on Saturday, July 26th:
