Ch-ch-changes are coming to the second half of Hannibal‘s third season — as anyone who watched last weekend’s “Digestivo” is well aware.
After Dr. Lecter’s surrender to Jack Crawford — following Will and Hannibal’s escape from the clutches of Mason Verger — Bryan Fuller’s beautiful nightmare will flash-forward several years in this Saturday’s installment (10/9c on NBC), and we’ve got first-look images of your old faves in fresh settings, plus the show’s new Big Bad.
In Episode 8, “The Great Red Dragon,” we’ll meet Richard Armitage’s Francis Dolarhyde (aka The Tooth Fairy) (aka Red Dragon), a serial killer with a set of chompers that would make the Big Bad Wolf a little envious — and a penchant for targeting entire households for slaughter. Also introduced in the hour is Will’s wife Molly (played by Nina Arianda).
The August 1 hour — “…and The Woman Clothed With The Sun” — features the return of Lara Jean Chorostecki as Freddie Lounds and the debut of True Blood‘s Rutina Wesley, playing Reba McClane, a blind woman who becomes a love interest for the sociopathic Dolaryhde.
