He's not just getting suspicious — he's getting pretty damn pushy. The launch of Grimm's fourth season finds wiseass Sgt. Drew Wu (Reggie Lee) determined to find out why Det. Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) keeps diaries filled with creepy monsters tucked away in his home. And why has Nick been harboring that machete-wielding killer? Can Wu handle the truth? Here's the lowdown from Lee.
TV Guide Magazine: Wu is the only major character who doesn't know Nick is a Grimm and that Portland is loaded with Wesen. Is he about to get the full 411?
Reggie Lee: Wu is pissed! He doesn't understand why Nick and Hank [Russell Hornsby], his two closest cohorts in the precinct, are holding out on him. He's feeling betrayed. His old sarcastic playfulness is giving way to real gravitas. Wu will openly confront Nick, and it's going to get crazy — really out there!
TV Guide Magazine: What are the pros and cons of Wu being in the loop? Can he be trusted to clam up?
Lee: Hard to say. It wouldn't be easy for him to be part of the Scooby gang. But, if he's not, he's a threat. Wu wants to move up. He wants to be captain one day. And all he knows is that Nick has this young girl, Trubel [Jacqueline Toboni], living at his house and that she lopped off a guy's head. Who does that? This is looking like police corruption.
TV Guide Magazine: Last season, Wu saw an Aswang — a creature he'd heard about in Filipino fairy tales — and ended up in a mental hospital. What's to say that won't happen again?
Lee: I don't know that Wu's mind could come to grips with what's really going on in the world. When he discovered Nick's Grimm books, I said to [cocreator] Jim Kouf, "You could go so many ways with this." And he said, "Oh, my friend, there's only one way to go from here." I was like, "Holy s--t, what does that mean?"
Grimm returns Friday, Oct. 24 at 9/8c on NBC.
