A Taste of Hannibal: Ep. 210 "Naka-Choko" airdate May 2 at 10/9c.
The next mouthwatering course is ready to come out of the macabre kitchen that is this season. The episode's title, "Naka-Choko," refers to another dish in a prototypical Japanese feast, a course intended to once again cleanse the palate. But in the case of Friday's new episode, don't be disappointed if you're left with a rather unsettling aftertaste.
That uncomfortable feeling will likely come as you realize Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is sinking deeper and deeper into Hannibal's abyss. Our man-beast (Mark O'Brien) and his deadly exoskeleton remains on the prowl; Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) and his patient/protege, Will, just can't stand to watch the animal cruelty continue. The SPCA could conceivably be proud of their efforts at justice, even if Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) is rightfully suspicious of Hannibal and Will suddenly becoming birds of a feather.
And there's more terror down on the farm. Mason Verger (guest star Michael Pitt) has an animal act in the works that could turn even a committed carnivore into a vegetarian. His sister Margot (Katharine Isabelle) has every right to share her family fears with her therapist, Dr. Lecter.
Look for Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) to come lurking around this week too, on the prowl for any kind of connection to Will Graham that could help her land a juicy story. As usual, she's got the curiosity of a cat; let's just hope she hasn't used up her nine lives.
