[WARNING: The following contains spoilers from Monday's Star-Crossed. Read at your own risk.]
Monday's Star-Crossed ended with a twist: Grayson (Grey Damon) is involved with the anti-Atrien extremists the Red Hawks, something his crush and equal rights supporter Emery (Aimee Teegarden) would never approve of. So is Grayson really just a villain in disguise?
"I think he has the potential to go both ways, which is something I really love about Grayson," Damon tells TVGuide.com. "Throughout the season we see that he has a darker side. Is he evil? No. He's a bit of an anti-hero."
Personally, Damon hopes producers continue to let Grayson get in touch with his inner baddie. "I always thought the villain was more interesting. There's just something about trying to convince the audience that your view is right, and that's a tricky thing to do. And with Grayson, if he went that route, I wouldn't be mad," Damon says.
For now, Damon says Grayson is "balanced on both sides," which might be enough to keep him in the running for Emery's heart. Although Roman (Matt Lanter) and Emery share a serendipitous connection, society isn't ready to accept an Atrian-human relationship just yet. And Grayson might be borderline villainous, but he is also extremely loyal to Emery, despite their conflicting political views.
But how does one compete with a suitor who is literally out of this world — complete with superpowers, sexy tattoos and naturally enhanced bodies? "They're from this gene pool of like, actual aliens where they're just jacked all the time so it's easy for them. It's a bit harder for me," Damon admits.
Do you think Grayson is evil?
