Mads Mikkelsen in "Hannibal"Photo: NBC Wait... so she really did throw him from the trainc The fifth episode of this third season of "Hannibal", titled "Contorno", was a weird one for me. For one I appreciate the fact we're all caught up, but at the same time I don't feel as if aspects of what we're dealing with entirely work. That said, once Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) gets rolling it's impossible to say anything negative about this show, as you'd much rather just sit back and watch. This week's episode begins with Will (Hugh Dancy) and Chiyo (Tao Okamoto) heading to Florence to hunt Hannibal. Their scenes are overly dramatic and begin spelling things out we are already more than aware of. Chiyo says to Will, "If you don't kill him, you are worried you are going to become him." Is anyone not clear on this yetc In fact, scratch that, »

If last week's episode of Hannibal Season 3 was a funereal contemplation of loss and unresolved anger, "Contorno" features what will surely be only the first bloody torrent of vengeance in the wake of Hannibal's trip to Florence. As Will and Chiyo make their way from Lithuania to Italy, Inspector Pazzi (Fortunato Cerlino) began to set a trap for his would-be prey, one ultimately done at the behest of Mason Verger (Joe Anderson). Rather than simply call his colleagues and take in the "monster of Florence," Pazzi looks to cash-in on Hannibal's capture, and "Contorno" felt distinctly aware of the dangers of ignoring one's past or, conversely, allowing it to slow you down. When Pazzi and his monster meet again, their conversation about the history of the inspector's family, their depictions in art and myth, slyly telegraphs his brutal end.

Hannibal, Season 3, Episode 4, “Aperitivo”
Directed by Marc Jobst
Airs Thursdays at 10pm (Et) on NBC
Four episodes into season three, the reverberations of the season two finale are still being felt. Given the monumental nature of “Mizumono”, that feels appropriate, and the first trio of episodes of season three have dealt primarily with the Red Dinner’s emotional and psychological fallout for Hannibal and Will. These episodes have been full of dream imagery and projections, exploring the psychology of these characters and meditating upon their decisions and pasts through recurring visual motifs and stylish directorial flourishes more than dialogue or plot. With “Aperitivo”, that changes, giving audiences a much more concrete look at the fallout of season two for the characters left in Baltimore.
“Aperitivo” takes viewers through Hannibal’s victims one by one, starting with Chilton and Mason before moving on to Will, »

Ricky Church reviews the fourth episode of Hannibal season 3…
While ‘Aperitivo’ was another relatively quiet episode, it provided a lot of forward momentum on the big threat of the season and everyone else’s story. That’s saying something considering this episode was an extended flashback dealing with the fallout of Season 2’s finale, finally revealing the fates of all involved in the bloodbath and how they got to where they currently are now.
The whole format of the episode was actually typical of a regular premiere. This is most likely the episode many people expected to get at the start of Season 3 as it revealed what happened to everyone in the months following Hannibal’s escape. Its interesting then that this was saved for the fourth episode, letting the audience focus on Hannibal’s free reign in Europe while questioning what had become of everyone else.

“Bella’s dead. That should change the view from these windows. It’s not right if the view stays the same.”
‘Aperitivo’ was an hour of small stories, a step back from the formless horror of Hannibal’s solo adventures in Europe and the protracted seance of Will’s pursuit. Il Mostro himself makes only a few momentary appearances, mostly in flashback and voice-over. The episode follows Will, Alana, Dr. Chilton, Jack, and Mason Verger(recast, not that it’s easy to tell, as a viciously dry Joe Anderson) as they contemplate what Hannibal has made of their lives. Each thread plays out as its own vignette, each one cutting to black at its conclusion like a series of films in miniature.
Chilton, the episode’s self-deprecating door to door salesman, begins an understated hour that takes what could have been a mess and transforms it into a living, breathing »

Gina Torres and Lawrence Fishburne in "Hannibal"Photo: Brooke Palmer / NBC It felt like tonight's episode of "Hannibal" would have been better served as the first or second episode in the season, not the fourth as most everything it covered was pretty much well established to this point. It wasn't a bad episode by any means, it merely seemed to stop the season in its tracks. Perhaps, however, that's a good thing, offering anyone that wasn't up-to-date a chance to play catch up while offering fans (or #Fannibals as has become the popular Twitter hashtag following the show's cancellation at NBC) an emotionally charged episode as Jack (Lawrence Fishburne) finally must say goodbye to Bella (Gina Torres) and Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) makes a strong first appearance in this third season. Serving as a prequel to everything that's taken place so far this year, the fourth episode of this third season, »

“Aperitivo” is a gaping wound of an episode, one festering with the corrupt, merciless feelings left in the wake of Hannibal’s slaying of Jack, Alana, Will, and Abigail. Beyond that, the episode toys with the psychological augmentation that Hannibal fostered in some not-so-sly ways, and director Marc Jobst matched the mood with a lot of sickly blues and greens, like fluorescent light or the tint of light through formaldehyde. Though the episode lacked for major action sequences or big exchanges, the episode reiterated the show’s fanatical dedication to following cause and effect, detailing the tremors of Hannibal’s last spate of brutal murders before getting on a plane to Italy. [caption id="attachment_478459" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via NBC[/caption] For Jack, his brush with death has clearly made him more comfortable with death, more closely acquainted with its sudden and unrelenting power. The episode edited the entire passing of Bella (Gina Torres) into a engulfing swirl of regret, »

Hey, there was a new "Hannibal" on tonight! Last night, I spoke with Bryan Fuller about the show's potential future, or lack thereof, somewhere other than NBC, and now I have a review of tonight's episode coming up just as soon as I politely refuse your offer of chocolate... "I know what's coming for you, Will. You don't have to die on me, too." -Jack Last week's episode pushed the show's abstract style to its limit, where the "pretentious art film" approach Bryan Fuller understandably favors for this show left things feeling more inert and confusing than enticing. "Aperitive" isn't exactly the show doing a stylistic 180 and resembling an episode of "NCIS." It bounces back and forth in time, it plays with characters' appearances and how we are allowed to see them(*), and it lets other characters' imagination overtake the narrative in a way that usually only Will's does.

Recently, NBC served up the new, official synopsis/spoilers for their upcoming "Hannibal" episode 5 of season 3. The episode is entitled, "Contorno," and it turns out that we're going to see some pretty drama-filled and intriguing stuff go down as Chiyoh and Will start butting heads over what exactly it is they wish to achieve when it's all said and done, and more! In the new, 5th episode press release: The Search For Hannibal Intensifies. Press release number 2: Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and Inspector Pazzi (guest star Fortunato Cerlino) are going to search for clues that will lead them closer to Hannibal Lecter's (Mads Mikkelsen) location in Florence, but the promise of riches offered by Mason Verger (guest star Joe Anderson) will threaten to corrupt Pazzi's quest for redemption. In the meantime, Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Chiyoh (Tao Okamoto) will travel to Florence, both on a mission to find Hannibal, »

Mads Mikkelsen in "Hannibal"Photo: Brooke Palmer / NBC I can't be certain on this, but was last week's episode the first episode of "Hannibal" to not include someone's deathc I only ask because this week's episode, titled "Secondo" made up for that missing aspect of last week's episode as not one, but two characters find themselves on the wrong side of pointy objects. This marks the third episode of this third season to be directed by Vincenzo Natali and he's toned down his visual flair here, though he's still fond of reflections, be they in knives or liquid, using them to move from one scene to the next. Though, can we all agree the best scene transition was from the cutting of a bird's leg to the chopping of a human hand as Hannibal prepares the forearm of the late professor Sogliato (Rinaldo Rocco) into a delectable carpaccio(c) to »

In the meantime, Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) will entertain a different approach, »
With Hannibal Season 3 premiering tonight on NBC, we recently participated in an interview call with Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller, who teased what we can expect to see this season, including Bedelia and Hannibal's relationship and much more.
Bryan Fuller: Well, really it kind of boils down to this fabulousness of Gillian Anderson and more of her is always a good thing. And we had so much fun working together in the first two seasons and she’s such an iconic actress and brings such a specific energy to the show that it seems like a really logical next step for the series to flush out that relationship expanded and get more of the chemistry between Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson.
There is a genuine connection between Bedelia and Hannibal. »

I have already watched the season three premiere of NBC's "Hannibal" and I don't want to say too much now as I will be recapping and reviewing each episode of this third season as they air, though I will say the fans and critics that have kept this series alive won't be disappointed. In fact, how this show has managed to survive is a mystery to me as it is the most un-major network television show I've ever seen. It's dark, twisted, violent, artistic and simply toys with its audience, wrapping us in the wicked little web it weaves. Sometimes it gets a little weird, and the first season had a little too much of the windshield wiper effect for my tastes, but boy am I glad I stuck with it. Today I have for you a few pictures from the upcoming third season along with a new sneak peek trailer. »

Even more than the first two seasons the visuals are just utterly gorgeous. "Hannibal" returns on June 4th.
