Grimm Season 2: Kristina Anapau Falls for Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
A smart thing for shows of the supernatural genre, like Grimm, is to look at similar shows when casting. True Blood has been having fun with Kristina Anapau as the fairy Maurella, but that show is almost over and Anapau will need a new gig. As I said, it’s wise for Grimm to bring in actors who have experience with the supernatural, and you can’t get more supernatural than True Blood – with Supernatural being the obvious exception. Knowing Anapau will appear on Grimm is just the first step, with the second being learning exactly what she will be playing: a dragonfly? How about a rhinoceros?
Grimm’s long list of Wesen is expanding to include the sheep-like creature, the Seelengut. Anapau will of course be playing this Seelengut, going by the name Megan Marston, a quiet, sheepish (punny) secretary at a Wesen church. The episode, the fifth of the second season, will be a play on the old fable about the wolf in sheep’s clothing, which means there will likely be a Blutbad somewhere in the episode. As it turns out, Megan will be involved in an intimate relationship with this Blutbad, who also happens to be the reverend of her church.
The episode will be called “Good Shepherd” and will air Monday, Sept. 10. Grimm will be moving back to its regular timeslot on Friday nights beginning Friday, Sept 21. So far, it’s been able to hold on to its audience in the Monday night timeslot, but we’ll see if the jarring move back to Fridays affects its numbers at all. NBC has a nasty habit of bumping shows around – they call it “testing” – but it never ends up helping anyone. When you move a show around the schedule like that, you inevitably lose viewers who can’t be bothered to adjust their own schedules. However, Grimm never really had much of a chance to begin with, but it’s survived, even thrived. It might just survive past this weird scheduling debacle.
