It’s been quite a second half of the season since “Grimm” returned, with Nick (David Giuntoli) discovering that it is Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz) who is the other man in Juliette’s (Bitsie Tulloch) life, Adalind (Claire Coffee) up to some new — and old — tricks, and everyone eagerly waiting to find out if Rosalee’s (Bree Turner) potions will break the obsessive bond between Juliette and Renard.

The action continues on tonight’s all-new “Grimm,” when we meet a never-before-seen Wesen, who blinds the innocent and feeds off its victim’s tears. When Nick becomes a casualty, the clock is ticking as Rosalee struggles to find the cure and save his life.

Catch Up on the Most Recent Episode of “Grimm”:

In keeping the XFINITY Watchathon Week in mind, we  checked in with the stars of “Grimm” to find out some of their favorite episodes — ones that just might be worth re-watching or watching for the first time:

David Giuntoli: We’ve been blessed with a lot of wonderful guest stars and any of my favorite episodes usually involve a lot of our cast in the same scene with scenes that are extended. Because when you’re doing TV, you’re chopping it in parts. You do the last scene the first day and it’s all out of order. It’s really great when you get to be on set with a group of people you know and enjoy working with. It feels kind of like you’re doing a little piece of a play.

Bitsie Tulloch: From Season 1, I really like the episode “Game Ogre” just because that was sort of the first time Juliette was inadvertently drawn into the fray in a sort of physical way. I think it was Episode 8.

And I also liked from Season 1, “The Thing with Feathers,” which is the one where Nick and Juliette go away for the weekend to that romantic cabin and all hell breaks loose. And again, I think, one of the reasons I like it is because she ends up having to hunt down and save Nick. Then there’s been a lot of great stuff from Season 2, but I would say from Season 2 so far my favorite episode is “Face Off.”

Sasha Roiz: Yes, I would agree, that “Face Off” is pretty amazing. It’s got something for every character, so, I think, that is really what appeals to me is when everybody’s kind of featured and there’s such high stakes.

I think from Season 1 is “Three Coins in a Fuchsbau,” because it was the first time we get a sense or a glimpse into the Captain, some of his personal life and some of his ambitions. So that was a lot of fun for me.

Preview XFINITY Watchathon Week:

Silas Weir Mitchell: When the show started and established itself, you have two people scenes, but then once the story starts to broaden, you have scenes with more and more people. For example, when Hank became in the know about what’s going on with Grimm dude, [who is also] his partner, then you could have scenes with me, Nick and Hank, instead of just scenes with Nick with me and Nick with Hank.

One scene that I really enjoyed was when I was drinking with Hank over some scotch and he got a little loose and was like, “What is this thing that’s going on with you guys?” And I morphed for him and that was really fun because it felt like a sort of out-of-the-box moment.

The “Mr. Sandman” episode of “Grimm” airs tonight at 9/8c on NBC.
