What We Do in the Shadows

Speaking with TV Line, Harvey Guillén stated Guillermo will “finally be honest with himself” as he reconnects with his family in tonight’s episode of What We Do in the Shadows.

This season we dive into Guillermo questioning lots of things. We dive into his love interest and who that might be, and we question his family dynamic. And some of the questions that have been asked by the audience and by himself, they finally get answered this season. A lot of questions get answered this season. He’s going to finally be honest with himself and the question he asks himself in the mirror will be answered. We’re halfway through the season and if you notice, his fit has already changed, his attitude has changed, he’s a bit more sassy and doesn’t take bullshit from anyone anymore. That year in Europe, when he was in London with Nadja, really opened his eyes. He did an Eat, Pray, Love of his own. He self-discovered who he is, and he even came back with new fighting techniques that we did not know he had until the episode at the Night Market.
