Dr. Miranda Grey is a supporting character in The Secret Saturdays. She is the sister of Abbey Grey and one of the surviving original members of the Secret Scientists, specializing in quantum physics. She was introduced in the episode The Kur Stone: Part One.
Miranda is a young woman of average height and build with long, orange blonde hair tied into a bun and chin-length bangs framing the sides of her face. She typically wears a light blue jumpsuit with a darker blue belt that holds her gun holster. Her shirt collar, platform boots, and gloves are white/very light-blue.
Dr. Grey is very serious and reserved. Little to nothing is known about her outside of her job, as she keeps her professional encounters professional. She is very hard-working and determined when it comes to her research, and believes in the idea of "(almost) any means necessary."
Before the Show
Miranda Grey is a renowned physicist, and one of the world's leading experts in the study of quantum physics. She is stationed in a remote base in Antarctica where she works on particle acceleration with the help of her robotic assistant, Deadbolt.
When V.V. Argost stole the legendary Kur Stone (approximately eleven years prior to the events of the series), she was one of the Secret Scientists who tracked him back to his manor, hoping to capture Argost and recover the stolen artifact. Miranda was entrusted with one of the pieces of the Kur Stone, with the other two going to Henry Cheveyo and Doc Saturday.
The piece of the Kur Stone would remain in her possession, safely hidden, until eleven years later in The Kur Stone: Part One, when it is stolen from her by Argost's henchman, Munya. She calls the Saturday family to tell them what happened and have them check on Dr. Cheveyo. She expresses disbelief at the idea that Doc and Drew would take Zak with them, but Zak hangs up on her before she can say more.
She appears again in the episode Eterno, as she is shown in the meeting with the other Secret Scientists to find a solution to the water crisis in the Middle East. Dr. Grey has no lines.
Miranda comes back with a speaking role in Paris is Melting, attempting to stop the Saturdays alongside Agent Epsilon and Arthur Beeman when it is believed that they have turned to evil. She mentions here that Abbey Grey is her sister and that she was unaware that Abbey was working for Van Rook. At the end of the episode, when Miranda apologizes for jumping to conclusions when it's shown that the Saturdays were right about the Smoke Mirror, Drew responds by saying, "You did what you thought you had to. I don't agree, but I do understand." This foreshadows Miranda's turn against the Saturdays when season two picks up.
As of Kur: Part One, she is one of the scientists attempting to capture Zak following the revelation of his identity as the reincarnation of Kur. She is on the side of freezing him in cryogenic storage until a more "permanent" solution can be found (I.E., freezing him indefinitely).
In The Thousand Eyes of Ahuizotl, she and Deadbolt try again to capture Zak on their own but are ultimately defeated. Later, the Saturdays discover that she is going to be sacrificed to the Ahuizotl, an offering so that he may take her eyes. Drew is reluctant to help, but Doc reminds her that they need to maintain a higher moral standard, especially around Zak. They do end up saving Miranda and returning Ahuizotl to his tomb, leaving Miranda tied up in the hands of villagers until they are at a safe distance. Drew mocks her for this, saying, "You'll like it here. They also believe in stopping "the monster" at any cost. Good thing not everybody does, huh?"
In The Legion of Garuda, Dr. Grey shows up alongside Dr. Beeman and Professor Talu Mizuki to capture Zak again. They nearly succeed, with Deadbolt grabbing Zak only to end up electrocuted and let him go, knocking out the other Secret Scientists in the process. Later in the episode, the Secret Scientists appear during the ceremony with the Flute of Gilgamesh. When it's revealed that the ceremony to "cleanse" Kur will actually kill Zak, Miranda immediately sides with the Saturdays, saying, "No matter our differences, we never wanted to hurt Zak. We're with you on this one." Working together, they stop the ceremony, and part with the understanding that they are back on opposite sides.
During War of the Cryptids, Miranda initially sides with Dr. Beeman, flying in his saucer with him into the fight. When he begins playing a recording of the Flute of Gilgamesh to incapacitate Zak and Argost, Miranda becomes concerned that it may kill them. When Dr. Beeman still doesn't relent, she sabotages his controls, shutting the music off in the process and very likely saving Zak's life. She is last seen at the end of the episode attending Leonidas Van Rook's funeral. It can be assumed that she is on good terms with the Saturdays again.
- It is possible that she was who learned and revealed to the others that Zak was Kur, considering that her base resides in the Antarctic continent, the place where takes place the battle between Argost and the Saturday family in Kur Rising. It's possible that she recorded or even witnessed that the naga's relic reacted with Zak, giving the hint that he was actually the true Kur.
