"I'd like to resume my therapy."
With those words, NBC's Hannibal reverted back to the familiar Season 1 dynamic between troubled FBI consultant Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and cannibalistic serial killer/psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). But nothing is the same as the last time these two men sat across from one another in Hannibal's well-appointed office.

After Will was locked up for Hannibal's crimes in the Season 1 finale, he spent the first part of the season trying to prove his innocence from inside the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. When those efforts failed (and led to the death of former colleague Beverly Katz), Will took a new approach: He tried to have Hannibal killed.

It all started with a regurgitated ear.
As Hannibal proved again and again in its first season, it's more capable than almost any other TV show of taking horrifying, gruesome images and turning them into something beautiful and interesting. In the case of the ear, that stomach-turning moment became much more powerful when Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) was revealed to be using it (and a serious case of encephalitis) to frame FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) for the series of murders Hannibal committed over the course of the first season.

Unfortunately for Will, he put together the pieces too slowly and, in a great reversal from the Thomas Harris books and the films they inspired, took Hannibal's place on the other side of the prison bars at the Baltimore Hospital for the Criminally Insane. As Season 2 begins...

"I never feel guilty eating anything," purrs Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) as he serves up another portion of some erotically charged exotic delicacy. NBC's Hannibal (Friday, 10/9c), in its second season, is a feast of macabre freakishness, going beyond the realm of guilty pleasure in a sustained nightmare of horrific yet elegantly hypnotic design.

Is it fall yet? I need to know what happens between Rayna and Deacon on Nashville! — Michelle
ADAM: They'll make it out of their finale car accident with only bumps and bruises, but the emotional injuries will be far more serious. "They are never going to have [a] smooth-sailing relationship," creator Callie Khouri tells us, pointing to Deacon's discovery that he's Maddie's father. "[Season 2] is not going to look like Father Knows Best. I don't think Deacon ever thought of himself as father material. We'll see him grapple with... whether or not he's right." Worse, given Deacon's dangerous bender, Rayna will feel even more justified in her decision to lie. "She was kind of right not to tell him," Khouri says. "He couldn't handle it."
