Scary. Creepy. Mysterious. Gory. Intense. Chilling. Masterful. The second episode of Hannibal Season 3 directed by Vincenzo Natali does not disappoint. We get Will Graham picking up from the end scene of Season 2 reminding us of the ferocity and horror of that show. We get more Abigail than we could ever have imagined. We are introduced to Inspector Rinaldo Pazzi who shares an interesting past with Hannibal Lecter. But it is the wendi-gore creature the sprouts from the humanoid heart sculpture that steals the show. The stuff of nightmares.
