Grimm's Sasha Roiz Previews Capt. Renard's Baby Revelation, Tees Up Season 3′s Big Bad

Nov 15 2013, 9:10am CST | by TV Line

Grimm‘s Sasha Roiz has a theory about how his character, Capt. Sean Renard, fits in the myriad duties of running the Portland police department and his affairs as a half-Hexenbiest royal bastard in exile.

“I often imagine he’s a character that just never sleeps,” Roiz tells TVLine, laughing. “When would you have time? He just worries. It’s a huge responsibility.”

Those worries look like they’re about to increase exponentially: In this Friday’s episode (NBC, 9/8c), per the official synopsis, “Captain Renard makes a startling realization about the possible identities of the royal baby’s parents.”

“You see it quickly play out in his mind, the sheer panic of it all,” Roiz says. “Once he receives the information, things start to move much quicker. He springs to action.”

Enter Adalind, Renard’s newly re-Hexenbiested possible baby mama, whom Roiz notes that his “masochistic” character could have killed on several occasions – “and I chose not to.”

He continues: “The more of a thorn in [Renard's] side that she is, the more that she plays this chess game, the more excited he gets.”

But given the royal power vacuum that his half-brother Eric’s death created, Sean won’t have much time for romance – even a twisted one – anytime soon. Lest we forget, Angel alum Alexis Denisof is poised to begin a multi-episode arc as Viktor Albert Wilhelm George Beckendorf, a royal cousin whom Roiz deems “the Big Bad this year.”

Might Viktor offer the out-for-himself exile a way back into the royals’ good graces? And if so, would he take it?

The royals “definitely understand that that’s very alluring to him,” the actor notes. “It’s one thing that’s missing from his life… that idea of belonging and having that sense of family, which was stripped away from him. They know how to play that and manipulate that.”

In the meantime, Renard’s closest ally appears to be Nick – that icy interaction in the last episode notwithstanding.

“I think we’re like, what do you call it? Enablers,” Roiz says, chuckling. “There’s a tacit understanding that we are not going to get very far without one another. So let’s just grin and bear it. Sometimes it’s good, and we actually have some levity, and other times it’s very adversarial.”

Nick’s moving-out party at Monroe’s, for instance. After all of the teamwork in the season’s first two episode, Roiz watched the episode and felt a pang at his absence from the scene.

“For a second, I was like, ‘Oh.’ I was a little hurt by that” he jokes. “I was like, ‘Is it so hard to invite the captain? It would be such a big deal to send the guy a text, maybe just make him feel included?!”
