What To Watch Tonight: ‘Hannibal’: Mukozuke (3/28/14)

“Hannibal” – “Mukozuke” – When one of the team’s own is found in a grotesque tableau, Will (Hugh Dancy) volunteers to assist with the profile and informs Jack (Laurence Fishburne) that it’s the work of the Chesapeake Ripper and the Copycat Killer… the two are one and the same. Dr. Able Gideon (Eddie Izzard) is brought back to the asylum to help confirm Will’s claims of the Ripper’s true identity (Hannibal Lecter), but instead suggests to Will the idea of putting an end to the Ripper once and for all.

Confined behind bars, Will enlists the help of Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki (Lara Jean Chorostecki) to contact his murderous admirer through her website. Once he has the killer’s attention, Will asks for help dealing with Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen). Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) becomes suspicious of Will’s intentions after reading Freddie’s article, and Gideon confirms her suspicions, sending Alana and Jack rushing to find Hannibal before it’s too late. Also starring Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson.

About “Hannibal”
The dark and haunting series “Hannibal” returns for a second season, with more shocking revelations and games of psychological cat and mouse. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is locked in a mental asylum accused of Hannibal Lecter’s crimes (Mads Mikkelsen). Now that Will sees Hannibal for what he truly is, he faces a fight to prove his own sanity and convince those closest to him he is innocent of murder. Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) is dealing with his own feelings about Will, and whether his protégé is in fact a cold-blooded killer.

Looking for answers, Jack turns to Hannibal, a man he has come to trust. With Will locked up, Hannibal becomes Jack’s new consultant on cases. Hannibal is torn between self-preservation and his desire to keep Will close to him, despite advice from his psychiatrist, Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson), to stay away. The deadly dance between these characters continues to turn in startling and unexpected ways, in a season that will show nothing can ever be the same again.
