A “Secondo” is a formal Italian meal’s second true course, and usually has a meat or fish dish. Think something like turkey, salmon, steak, or lamb. And fittingly, it’s in this episode that we get our first real mentions of lambs, a nice homage to Silence of the Lambs.
While last week gave us a pretty meditative and surreal episode, this week is much more plot-heavy. Hannibal and Bedelia get up to their usual shenanigans in Italy (murder and psychoanalyzing murderers), Will Graham travels to Hannibal’s childhood home in Lithuania, and Jack comes to Italy searching for Will.
Spoilers and the usual Hannibal trigger warnings below (gore, cannibalism, lots of snails, artsy crime scenes, you know the drill).
