Jack and Alana are contacted by a former colleague, Dr. Chilton, who believes he has The Chesapeake Ripper in custody, but then one of his patients commits a murder that matches The Ripper’s profile. The team determines the Ripper was a surgeon and is still at large when Jack’s former protégé Miriam becomes the next victim. Jack copes with her loss and the prospect of losing his wife by opening-up to Hannibal.

So sorry about the delay, but I’ve just added over 1,000 screen caps from the fifth episode of “Hannibal,” entitled “Coquilles.” (Remember: it was only the fourth to air, as episode four wasn’t broadcast in the US.) What did you think about the episode? I thought Gina Torres did an amazing, beautiful job as Jack Crawford’s wife, Bella. (Fun fact: she and Laurence Fishburne – who plays Jack – are actually married in real life.) If you make something with the caps, please don’t hesitate to share!
When Bryan Fuller was taking questions on Twitter a few weeks back, BFO actually asked who he would like to see in any upcoming “Hannibal” episodes as part of a dream cast. He mentioned that he would love David Bowie to play Hannibal Lecter’s uncle, Robert. In a recent interview, he confirmed his desires, and laid out further plans on the NBC series — which will hopefully be renewed for a second season. Choice quotes:
• “I guess my dream casting for the show would be to cast David Bowie as Hannibal Lecter’s uncle,” Fuller tells Getty Images Entertainment, courtesy of Zap2it. “If we get a second season I will reach out and see if there is any interest.”
• “NBC are saying that they’re very happy with where we are at so I hope that indicates towards a second season because I have a plan for Season 2 that I think would be very exciting,” Fuller reveals. “I actually have story arcs through Season 7. I think seven seems about right.”
• “In the first season we have this weird bromance between Will and Hannibal, season two is the nasty break up and the third season would have a fugitive angle to it, the fourth season would be ‘Red Dragon,’ the fifth season would be in the realm of ‘Silence Of The Lambs,’ the sixth season would be ‘Hannibal,’” Fuller says. “In the seventh season it would be interesting to see Will Graham and a Clarice Starling type character come together for an adventure with their nemesis, Hannibal Lecter.”
Check out the lengthy podcast interview with Geek Nation’s BloodCast and Bryan Fuller. They talk about his current NBC series (“Hannibal,” of course), remakes, and a brief dive into Bryan’s earlier career with a talk about the TV movie adaptation of the famous Stephen King story, Carrie. Ryan Turek does a great job in the podcast, knowing a tremendous amount about the horror genre (and entertainment industry) and bouncing off of Bryan’s equally knowledgable brain. At five minutes under an hour, it’s quite long, but it’s definitely worth a listen.
Will Graham and the BAU team track a serial killer whose bloody ritual includes cutting the victims’ back flesh and stretching it to look like angel wings. Returning to the field weighs heavily on Will’s psyche and Hannibal tries to drive a wedge between Will and Jack. Meanwhile, Jack Crawford’s wife Bella pulls away from him and begins seeing Hannibal as her therapist, in an effort to come to terms with the fact she is dying. Beverly tries to connect with Will on a more personal level.

Once again, I’ve added over 1,000 HD screen caps of “Hannibal” to the gallery. This time, you can check out images from the third episode, entitled “Potage.” What did you think of it? I’m absolutely loving the show, including all of the intricate details that are easy to overlook but so important to a case (such as the rock that Hannibal Lecter covered). If you make something with the caps, please don’t hesitate to share!
Jack theorizes that Abigail may have aided her father, Garret Jacob Hobbs in his serial killings. Against Dr. Alana Bloom’s advice, but at Hannibal‘s behest, Abigail is escorted back to Minnesota, where she discovers much violent hostilityagainst her and her family. Things go from bad to worse when a copycat killer murders a friend of Abigail. Hannibal suggests they hide the body to protect Abigail – but secrets come at a cost.

What’d you think of the second episode of “Hannibal,” entitled “Amuse-Bouche”? Without giving too much away, it almost makes me never want mushrooms again! (And who else caught the “Wonderfalls” Easter egg? A previous Fullerverse character makes a delightful cameo.) Anyway, I’ve added over 1,000 HD screen caps from the episode to the gallery. If you make something with them, please don’t hesitate to share!
Deadline is reporting that Bryan Fuller’s “High Moon” has been ordered to pilot. Congrats, Bryan! Hopefully it will get picked up for a series order next. For those unaware of “High Noon,” here’s a summary:
“High Moon” is described as an imaginative, out-of-this-world series exploring what happens when the countries of Earth establish colonies to mine the Moon’s resources and discover a new form of life. Chaos erupts in a genuinely emotional, humorously thrilling, and always unexpected fashion as the people of the Moon race to uncover this life form’s powerful secrets.
Co-executive producer/writer: Jim Danger Gray
Executive producer/writer: Bryan Fuller.
The pilot is written by Gray from a story by Fuller and Gray.
Despite the one-off episode of “Mockingbird Lane” getting an impressive 5.6 million viewers on a Friday evening, NBC ultimately decided not to move forward with the series. Yet, it seems as if all hope is not entirely lost, at least for Bryan Fuller. In this new interview, he mentions that the network has a tantalizing offer, stating “perhaps we’ll redevelop it.” Will we see more of the show in the future, do you think? Would you personally want to see a full series of this innovative Munsters re-imagining? I know I would! Check out the full interview below:
What about for “Mockingbird Lane”? How did that tie into the themes you’re interested in?
“Mockingbird Lane,” they were so connected as a family. And for Herman and his role in “Mockingbird Lane,” he was a guy who was sort of created. And his father-in-law made him who he is literally. And so, his connection was always about defending his family and doing what was right. Even though he was an amalgam of so many different people, he still wanted to be a father, and a husband, and was on his own kind of heroic journey of doing what was right for his son. As a parent of a special needs child, that metaphor of doing everything you can to carve a path in the world for your children to travel as easy as they can.
What I like about “Mockingbird Lane” and what I miss about “Mockingbird Lane” is that it was fun to write a functional family unit, and that these people were all connected. And it was kind of like they were disconnected from the rest of the world, but they were so connected to each other that it had this romantic quality of togetherness. As sort of the youngest child of five, it was satisfying creatively to write a family story that was coming from a completely different angle.
I miss “Mockingbird Lane.” I would have loved to have travel in that world a bit longer.
