Silas Weir Mitchell and Bree Turner
It's not "Muskrat Love," but Grimm is staging a romance between two of its muzzled creatures.
On Monday's episode (10/9c, NBC), Wesen pals Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) will finally take their mutual admiration and gentle flirting to the next level for a romantic picnic. "Monroe finally asks her out on a date, and it's all very, very sweet," Turner tells TVGuide.com. "She feels a little shy about it and is a little overwhelmed with how amazing Monroe is and how romantic he is."

Rosalee, who is a Fuchsbau or fox-like creature, has been an important addition to Nick's (David Giuntoli) crime-fighting team, providing Wesen drug knowledge, supplies and remedies from her apothecary shop. Despite her seemingly mild-mannered nature, Rosalee will reveal another aspect of...

When you need a job done right, call on Monroe.
On Monday's Grimm (10/9c, NBC), Nick (David Giuntoli) calls on his Blutbad pal once more to see if his presence will jog Juliette's memory. When we saw her last, she had just woken from her l'esprit ailleurs-induced coma, but suffered memory loss and could not recognize her boyfriend Nick. That's a blow to a fledgling Grimm's ego!
Grimm may be inspired by beloved fairy tales, but don't expect any happily-ever-afters. In fact, life is about to get very deadly for all concerned. The hit NBC crime procedural — about a Portland homicide detective, Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli), with the power to spot supernatural creatures who masquerade as human beings—will get an early second-season return tonight, fresh from two weeks of heavy promotion during the Olympic Games. (The series airs on Mondays for five weeks, then returns to its previous Fridays-at-9 slot on September 14.) Prepare to get prehistoric.

"Ain't nobody's hands clean in what's left of this world." We probably don't need a new interloper (Terriers' terrific Michael Raymond-James) to deliver this message to the shell-shocked survivors of AMC's The Walking Dead, which resumes its second season (Sunday, 10/9c) in the immediate aftermath of the massacre of the barn zombies, which ended the fall run on a shattering note.
Silas Weir Mitchell
A reformed Blutbad, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) has cleaned up his act. So why is he still feeling the hate?
On Friday's Grimm (9/8c, NBC), titled "Of Mouse and Man," the seemingly mild-mannered Marty (guest star Fred Koehler) could be taking matters into his own hands after a history of abuse.
David Giuntoli may play homicide detective Nick Burkhardt in NBC's fairy tale-tinged crime procedural Grimm, but in real life, he's not that stoic when faced with corpses — especially the fake ones used on the series.
"I'm not usually easily disturbed, but I've walked on the set and been absolutely disgusted to my core," he tells TVGuide.com. "I'll always remember where I was when I saw this specific crime scene [in 'Danse Macabre']. There were rats crawling out of the stomach, out of the mouth of a corpse. The corpses, the prosthetics are so real that until you touch them, your brain doesn't understand that it's fake. It's terrifying. There's a lot of eating lunch in my trailer far, far away from the morgue set."
Silas Weir Mitchell
Silas Weir Mitchell thinks his wolfy Grimm character Monroe could totally take on Twilight's werewolf Jacob... but only if he didn't rely solely on brute strength.
"If you're asking if Taylor Lautner's character could kick my a--, yeah he probably could," Mitchell tells TVGuide.com. "I might have the wiles, but if he got the jump on me, I'd be dead meat. I'm older than he is, so I know some tricks, but like I said, if it were pound for pound, I'm dead."
David Giuntoli, Grimm
Is it a riff on the old Pied Piper story...or Glee gone bad? On a special Thursday episode (10/9c) of NBC's fairy-tale-inspired crime series Grimm, a teacher at a performing-arts school will die gruesomely, leaving many of the students on the suspect list Nick (David Giuntoli) must investigate. "It's a very...
It's a close encounter of the rodent kind on Grimm.
During a special Thursday airing (10/9c on NBC) of the fairytale-laced cop drama, Nick (David Giuntoli) gets called in to investigate the grisly death of a high school music teacher. At the school they encounter Roddy, an outcast with whom Nick needs help to question.
Last Man Standing, Homeland, The X Factor
So many new shows, so little time! With a handful of fall TV casualties already — RIP Charlie's Angels, Playboy Club, Free Agents, How to Be a Gentleman and H8R (and it's not looking too good for Prime Suspect or Man Up either) — it's time to assess what's worth keeping on your DVR, and what you can safely skip.
For now, we're high on American Horror Story, a spooky mash-up unlike anything else on TV, and Homeland, a twisty thriller anchored by two riveting performances. We're cautiously optimistic about Suburgatory, for those who miss Gilmore Girls, but then there are the shows we're thisclose to ditching...
