In a special Thursday episode of Grimm, the rats will be swarming. Thanks to a magical, musical influence, these rodents will cause a whole lot of trouble before Nick and his friends can stop the fairy tale problem. Keep reading to watch videos featuring the disgusting bits of gore we will see in "Danse Macabre."WARNING: These videos contain a whole bunch of spoilers about the "Danse Macabre" episode of Grimm. They also contain a rather disgusting dead body. And rats. If any of those things bother you, don't watch the videos. You won't enjoy them much.
This episode follows the investigation of a music teacher's murder. The man is found in his car, essentially gnawed to death by rats. As it turns out, one of the man's former students is a violin prodigy from the wrong side of the tracks and with an odd influence on rodents. Could the student somehow be sending the rats to exact revenge? Or is something else at work in this Pied Piper tale?
The first video of the bunch, entitled "Death by Rats," deals with just that. Nick and Hank arrive at a murder scene to find a grisly body.
Even in a show that deals with the strange and borderline inexplicable, a rat-chewed corpse counts as weird.
Apparently, however, it's not quite so weird to Grimm
's medical examiner. This matter-of-fact woman seems barely phased by the eaten body on her table.
You've got to love a tough detective who has no trouble with a mangled human corpse but almost pukes at the sight of a couple of dead rats...
While those two videos comprise the only footage of the "Danse Macabre" episode of Grimm
, you can learn a whole lot more about the episode from some interview videos. The first, with Russell Hornsby, proves that the actor himself is the source of Hank's rat phobia.
Silas Weir Mitchell (Monroe, the reformed Big Bad Wolf) doesn't give away nearly as much about the episode, but he does explain more about his own character and his relationship to Nick, the Grimm.
The next video features an interview with Barney Burman, the special effects wizard responsible for that rat-chewed body.
He's an Oscar winner? That's pretty cool.
The final video is an interview with Grimm
star David Giuntoli. In addition to many expressions of disgust over the rats' work, he gives us a few more spoilers.
He is very excited (or possibly just terrified) by the dead body. Want to know more about this Grimm episode? Click here for BuddyTV's own interviews, direct from the set of "Danse Macabre!
