Hannibal Postmortem: Where Do Will and Hannibal Go From Here?

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Friday's episode of Hannibal. Read at  your own risk.]

"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.

Weekend TV: Dream Builders, Resurrection, Girls Finale

In what initially comes off as a Habitat for Inhumanity — fueled by reality-competition juices that upstage the do-gooder impulse of neighborhood home renovation — NBC's derivative American Dream Builders takes its visual cues from Extreme Makeover Home Edition (airing in that show's old time period, Sundays at 8/7c), complete with an elaborate weekly reveal, although the only bus here is the one the contestants repeatedly throw each other under. Dream Builders' emotional dynamic is more attuned to Celebrity Apprentice in its nightmare blueprint of clashing egos getting in the way of a job well done.

Hannibal Season 2: Can Will Beat Hannibal At His Own Game?

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...read more

Weekend Review: Hannibal, Binging (Or Not to Binge) on Cards, Oscars

"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.
