‘Hannibal’ Weekly Wrap Up – “Contorno”
By Lynn Sorel
Synopsis: Jack and Will along with Chiyoh arrive in Florence with different agendas for Hannibal while Detective Pazzi gets close.
Our Thoughts: “Contorno” begins with Will traveling with Chiyoh to look for Hannibal. Meanwhile the “Fells” enjoy some snails, while Hannibal lies in wait for Will to come for him.
We see more of Mason being a scumbag, which left a bad taste in my mouth. However, Alana’s participation is even worse, and I am finding myself really hating her.
Pazzi gets dangerously close to Hannibal when he asks him a few too many questions. Despite Pazzi being well aware of Hannibal’s past, he greatly underestimates him.
We learn a bit more about Chiyoh as she has some intimate conversations with Will as they travel. However, she throws a wrench into Will’s plans in a shocking turn.
One of my favorite scenes from the ‘Hannibal’ book plays out on screen tonight, as Hannibal makes good use of his knife. Unexpectedly, the scene leads to another bloody and brutal fight scene between Jack and Hannibal.
As the episode closes, the deck is clearly stacked against Hannibal. Who will get to Hannibal first? Who will live and who will die? See you for “Dolce” next week, Fannibals!
