In this episode, we really wanted to play with the notion of having another Grimm coming into the picture, even if it was just an imposter. The concept initially revolved around a self-loathing Wesen, and from there, we simply expanded by adding a little bit of hero worship. It was really important for us to have the imposter Wesen posing as a Grimm to be someone that was familiar but not a dead give away. We achieved that by introducing the seemingly innocent intern Ryan Smulson, played by the talented Michael Grant Terry, two episodes prior. It was a lot of fun for us to drop into our mythology the bit about Wesen having their own cautionary fairy tales, much like that of Nick's notorious ancestors, the Grimms. The Endezichen Grimm legend has proven to be one of our favorite creations to date.
