Hannibal Postmortem: Is Will's Transformation Into a Killer Complete?

Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen

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

Will Graham, what have you done!?

On Friday's Hannibal, it was pretty hard to tell supposed good guy Will (Hugh Dancy) from his evil, manipulative puppet master Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). In fact, the episode's creepy closing shot implied the two are now almost one in the same... read more

Weekend TV: LEGO My Simpsons, Resurrection Finale

The Simpsons

Oh, snap! After 25 seasons, Fox's The Simpsons can still seem as fresh and inventive as when we first met this merrily mutant family — especially when the show raises its game as it does for this weekend's milestone 550th (!) episode (Sunday, 8/7c), a fantastical collaboration with LEGO in which all the elements of visuals, story and jokes click into place with spectacular results.

Question: I've been enjoying the insights into the early Hannibal Lecter and Norman Bates on Hannibal and Bates Motel. I know that both shows are just based on the original works and can certainly invent stories for the characters. However, I expect the TV series to at least honor the future stories that we're so familiar with. What I mean: Bates Motel is terrific at bringing young Norman along where we can understand the Norman in Psycho and how he got that way. The taxidermy and now the blackouts are both critical, as is the relationship with Mother. However, I was very upset that they killed off Dr. Chilton in Hannibal since he is an important character in the novels. We can accept that what we see in Jack, Will, Bloom, Lounds, etc. are consistent (genders aside) with what we see later in Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs. But now, there is no place for Chilton in the future stories. Am I out of line and the only one who has complained? — Jerome

Top Moments: Real Housewives' Insane Brawl and Game of Thrones' Sibling Assault

Porsha Stewart, Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore

Our top moments of the week:

13. Worst Melodrama:
It's midway through Dancing with the Stars, and that means it's time for the annual Maks temper tantrum. Still burned by Julianne Hough's "phoning it in" comment and feeling the pressure to deliver for Meryl Davis, Maks comes thisclose to blowing a gasket, but is talked off the ledge by Meryl, who tells him to hold her hand. "It's really crazy. I must be the weakest freaking person in this ... read more

Exclusive Hannibal Video: Go Inside the Deliciously Twisted Mind of Creator Bryan Fuller

Mads Mikkelsen

Do you spend a lot of time laughing while watching Hannibal? Neither do we, but creator Bryan Fuller actually doesn't see the NBC crime drama being that far off from some of his whimsical past projects.

In our exclusive first look at the latest edition of "Post Mortem with Scott Thompson," a web series hosted by the actor who plays Hannibal's lab geek Jimmy, Fuller explains how he was lured to the project. "I was just intrigued with a gentleman cannibal," Fuller says. "There was so much fun to what he does as somebody who eats the rude — there was inherent comedy to be had... read more

Mega Buzz: 24's Reunion, a S.H.I.E.L.D. Return and a New Bones Romance

Jack is back! Please spoil the return of 24— David 
Although he's been on the lam for four years, Jack comes out of hiding to stop the assassination of the U.S. president in London. And as you might guess, he's promptly captured the minute he shows his face. But Jack's not that rusty. In fact, there's a very specific reason Jack allows himself to get caught — and it involves a familiar face. Unfortunately, Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski), a Bauer-esque CIA operative looking to prove her worth, wastes little time standing in the way of the blessed reunion. Say it with me: Dammit!

Please tell me Cobie Smulders is going to stay on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. full-time! — Cara

Scandal

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: From the moment Cyrus elected (pun intended) not to let anyone else in on the bomb threat to the final silliness of Olivia and Jake wending skyward on daddy's jet, the Scandal finale was all the usual over-the-top perfection Gladiators have come to love and expect from Shonda Rhimes when she's operating at the top of her "a little too much is not enough" game. Nice homage to the Keyser Söze reveal from The Usual Suspects at the end. Sorry Columbus Short got offed; perhaps if his character had been given a real reel life I'd miss him more, but that was one of the flaws in the mostly great/outlandish storytelling that truly bugged this fangirl. I know it was a rush from plot point to plot point, but I'm willing to accept the pregnancy as a legitimate excuse for the end-of-season, roller rink stop-and-go, punch in the face/gut action. And what a nice sendoff for Joe Morton! Now let's see how Rhimes gets Olivia back in the game. Who's she gonna play with now? This could be a signal that there are new players, yet to be named. And how in the expletive deleted are they (Ms. Rhimes and Ms. Pope) gonna top that?! — McKenzie

Question: What do you think of the "Uprising" arc in the second half of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s first season? I think it is miles better than the first half of this season, which was pretty so-so at times. [Spoilers ahead] The tie-in with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with Hydra infiltrating S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Garrett being revealed as the Clairvoyant working for Hydra, were very good plot twists, along with Agent Ward being a turncoat to work for Agent Garrett and Hydra — or could Ward be going undercover for Agent Coulson to help S.H.I.E.L.D. bring down Hydra? I really hope this show gets renewed for a second season by ABC, so that it will continue to improve and be a better show that everyone can enjoy to watch! - Chris

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

Laurence Fishburne, Hugh Dancy

[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.

Spring Preview: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

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.

Got any Scandal scoop? — Christie 
It sounds like Maya's plan to target the president with her bomb will come to fruition. In other words, expect an explosive season finale! Making matters worse, we hear the finale takes place on Election Day, which means that the lives of even more people, including campaign manager Olivia, will be in jeopardy. Anyone want to guess the victim(s)?
