Grimm season 2 is still on a very long hiatus, but before the show returns on March 8 the cast, including David Giuntoli, Sasha Roiz, Silas Weir Mitchell, Bitsie Tulloch, Bree Turner, Reggie Lee and Claire Coffee, along with executive producers Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt, revealed some hints at TCA 2013 about what we can see the rest of this season. 

Nick Learns Renard's Secret

In the new Grimm trailer, we see that Nick will find out a lot about the Royals, Adalind and Captain Renard. Once he gets wind of the fact that Renard is the Royal in Portland, the two of them are going to go mano-a-mano in a battle that looks pretty epic. 

At the TCA's Sasha Roiz talked about the massive fight that Nick and Renard get into, "I was very excited to finally have a confrontation," adding "It's going to be a powder keg."

David Giuntoli said that the situation between the two "finally comes to a..." "Kerfuffle," Roiz added helpfully, to which Giuntoli replied. "He had a height advantage on me but I had a rage advantage." Giuntoli also said that he was starting to enjoy more of the fight scenes. "I like learning the tricks of that," but he also likes to play the "deep emotional" stuff, too.

Whoa, sounds like that's going to be one fight that fans aren't going to forget. 

Here are a few more things we know from the cast and crew:

Rosalee will be back. Bree Turner said, "[Rosalee's] aunt is fine. She's healed up and I do come back just in time in regards to Juliette's condition and all that stuff."

Adalind is going to get a lot more bitchier. Claire Coffee said, "Adalind can get much bitchier; bitchier beyond my wildest dreams." She also added, "I've been doing a lot of research on psychopaths" for the role and that Adalind will be "more focused on this supreme amount of power" she can achieve. 

It doesn't look like Wu will be finding out about monsters anytime soon. Reggie Lee said that Wu "has been so much fun for me to play." On Wu being in the dark he said, "I don't think every character can know everything all at once. If everyone knew, it wouldn't be as much fun to watch."

Juliette is going to get down and dirty with someone. Bitsie Tulloch would only hint at an upcoming sex scene, saying that it required training and stunt doubles, but she would not tell us just who Juliette would be in the sheets with. On Juliette's continued amnesia and the conflict between her, Nick and Renard she said, "It's really trippy and kind of fabulous."

Monroe will continue to battle both sides of his personality. On playing both parts of Monroe, Silas Weir Mitchell said, "As an actor it's a delight to have these two poles you can go towards at anytime. There's the hermit-like clockmaker and there's the guy who wants to run through the woods and get down with your girlfriend." He also added that, "The more difficult it is as a character, the more fun it is as an actor."

What do you think of what the new trailer and what the cast had to say about the rest of Grimm season 2? Who do you think will win in a showdown between Nick and Renard? 

Grimm returns to NBC on March 8, 2013 at 9pm.
