- Here’s a first-look at Grimm Season 2′s first monster, “Mauvais Dentes” (via EW) — this vicious saber-toothed creature is “the worst thing that’s ever come; he can kill a whole village,” according to EP David Greenwalt, who adds: “And he acts like a cat, so he likes to rope you in and play with you a little bit and observe you. He’ll never be predictable.” In addition, fellow EP Jim Kouf says the Season 2 monsters will be more proactive in their pursuit of Nick, saying: “It’s more focused on Nick now,” he says. “Before, it was catch what [monsters] came across his desk. These are more directed toward him.”

Olsson will play Benny, “a dark and dangerous vampire who helps Dean escape from purgatory.” The character, who will debut in the Oct. 3 premiere, was teased during the show’s Comic-Con panel last weekend with Jensen Ackles saying:
“It’s like, ‘I need you and you need me.’ And of course, he’s not a good guy. That character stands to pose a bit of an issue for Dean because maybe there are things that Dean has hidden that he doesn’t want to tell Sam that happened in purgatory.”
