Here's a taste of what to expect from the next episode of Hannibal, airing March 28 at 10/9c.
This episode, penned by Ayanna A. Floyd, Steve Lightfoot and creator Bryan Fuller, is titled "Mukozuke." In the high cuisine Japanese feast known as Kaiseki, mukozuke is a contrasting side dish, typically sashimi. And the banquet that is this week's episode is filled with delicious contrasts indeed.
After Chilton's mind-bending drug therapy, Will found many of the missing pieces falling into place. All he needed to free himself was someone to believe in him. Jack, too distracted by the suicide attempt of his terminally ill wife, was simply too pre-occupied to give Will another hearing.
Poor Beverly Katz, hot on Hannibal's trail after meeting with Will, becomes a victim herself. Who but Hannibal could have murdered her?
Will is more determined than ever to see Dr. Lecter pay for his sins. But exacting justice on a renowned psychiatrist from behind bars won't be so easy.
Fortunately for Will, he's got a few able-bodied allies to commit to his cause, though they may not be fully aware of the dealing they're doing. Look for our old friend Dr. Gideon (Eddie Izzard) to offer some encouragement and crime newshound Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) to provide a nefarious entrée.
Despite being in grave danger from an unknown threat, Hannibal seems to be enjoying his cat and mouse game more than ever. For Will however, it's no game, but a quest for justice and revenge.
