A Taste of Hannibal: Ep. 206 Futamono (4/4/14)

Here's a taste of what to expect from the next episode of Hannibal, airing April 4 at 10/9c.

The rich banquet that is this season of Hannibal continues Friday with the all-new episode titled "Futamono." Like the elaborate Japanese meal that serves as a metaphor for this season, there's something new to take in at every turn. Futamono refers to a dish served in a lidded pot, often a soup. And those of you looking for a steaming, piquant slurp won't be disappointed this week.

With the murder and ultimate vivisection of Beverly (the dearly departed Hettienne Park) rocking the Behavioral Analysis Unit to its core, Jack (Laurence Fishburne) is now willing to consider almost any possibility. As he considers the evidence yet again, the Chesapeake Killer makes a political statement. There may be an axiom that you can't fight city hall, but apparently the Ripper doesn't understand the rules. Look for a city councilman with a serious hang-up.

If Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) is in shock over the continued killings, he certainly isn't going to let it get in the way of throwing a splendid dinner party. Will (Hugh Dancy) corners an already suspicious Jack and plants an incriminating thought: exactly who is on the menu?

Fearing that Hannibal is falling victim to a witch-hunt, Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) becomes an even stauncher defender of the doctor. There's must be something about that ultra-refined palate and those tailored suits that excite Dr. Bloom's sense of justice.

And this being Hannibal, you simply must watch through to the end of the episode - when a familiar young face appears in a shocking resurrection. It's said there's nothing certain but death and taxes, but the long reach of the IRS may be all you can count on this week.
