Workers make a grisly discovery--bodies discarded in a river, creating a soupy crime scene for the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) to decipher. Hannibal Lecter assumes Will Graham's FBI duties, assisting on the case, while Will sits in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane awaiting trial for the very murders he investigated.

Dr. Alana Bloom: Declaring Hannibal's guilt is more important to Will than establishing his own defense.
Jack Crawford: Hannibal's not guilty.
Dr. Alana Bloom: Neither is Will. But he's clinging to the hope Hannibal did this so he doesn't have to face what he did.

'Hannibal' Returns and thats a damn good thing!
1 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Without spoiling anything... This was a great episode, the amazing writing and acting has continued making me excited to watch the remaining 12 episodes of Hannibal. The thing that a love about this series is that is makes me want to watch the next episode very badly which is rare for me as 'Breaking Bad' has finished. The pacing is very good, it is becoming to be one of the best TV shows. I was worried about the start of this series because Will's situation, i didn't know where they would take it and i still don 't but I'm not worried. I'm intrigued. This episode 'Kaiseki' was more eerie than usual for this series, i like it, i like the horror essence of the show and they should show it more. I cannot really write much more as its spoiler free but i encourage you to watch this episode or if you haven't watched Hannibal yet, watch it!
