Welcome back for your second helping of Season 3, Fannibals! I wish I could subtitle this episode “The gang’s all back!” but really it was more “Will Graham’s all back!” They are really introducing the cast piecemeal this season, but hopefully by next week we’ll round out with Jack and Alana (whom trailers tell us are still alive) and newcomer Lady Murasaki. Until then, it was nice to piece together at least a little of what happened since the finale, since last episode’s focus on Hannibal and Bedelia gave us no clue as to what befell our erstwhile companions who lay dying at Chez Hannibal in the Season 2 finale. So get ready for some answers… just not very many.
Spoilers and your typical Hannibal trigger warnings, i.e. body horror (including a particularly grotesque scene this week), mutilation, blood/gore, etc.
