Some new photos from the upcoming episode “Red Menace,” courtesy of TVLine, reveal the new lady who has captured Hank’s eye. Played by “Hellcats” alum Sharon Leal, the new character named Zuri is a physical therapist who helps Hank.
“He gets involved in something that involves a loved one of hers very dearly, and they sure look like they’re falling for one another, but you never know,” series co-creator James Kouf teases to the site. Co-creator David Greenwalt adds, “Yeah, she’s the one who helps him get back him on his foot.”
“Grimm” returns at 9 p.m. ET Friday (Jan. 3) on NBC. The synopsis for “Red Menace” reads, “Nick and Hank investigate a Wesen ‘healer’ whose ability holds risks that far outweigh its rewards. Meanwhile, Juliette takes in a friend when domestic issues escalate and Hank makes a move on his physical therapist Zuri. Elsewhere, Captain Renard finally tracks down Adalind and has a stern warning for her. Silas Weir Mitchell, Bree Turner and Reggie Lee also star.”
