‘Hannibal’ First Look: Dr. Lecter Faces the ‘Red Dragon’ From Behind Glass
NBC may have dumped the remainder of Hannibal Season 3 on Saturdays, but Dr. Lecter and co. will not go quietly, moving into full Red Dragon territory for the final six episodes of the season. Our first spoilery photos have arrived, as Hannibal finally faces life behind glass, while Francis Dolarhyde begins his reign of Tooth Fairy terror.
As teased by the recent Comic-Con trailer and revealed by the synopsis, July 25 installment “The Great Red Dragon” will leap forward through time a grand three years, to a point in which Hannibal has been incarcerated, while Will has found himself a wife in Molly (Nina Arianda). The photos also show our first photographic look at The Hobbit star Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde, while other photos catch us up with Jack and Alana as well.
So reads the official “Red Dragon” synopsis:
“THE GREAT RED DRAGON”
THE GREAT RED DRAGON RISES - RICHARD ARMITAGE GUEST STARS AS FRANCIS DOLARHYDE - NINA ARIANDA AND RAUL ESPARZA ALSO GUEST STAR
Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) has been under lock and key for three years at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane, when a new villain arises in Francis Dolarhyde (guest star Richard Armitage), also known as “The Tooth Fairy.” As the investigation unfolds Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) approaches Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) to help catch this vicious serial killer who is targeting families. Caroline Dhavernas, Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson also star.
And while the synopsis doesn’t clarify as much, future episodes will see True Blood alum Rutina Wesley portraying the blind Reba, an integral figure in Francis Dolarhyde’s story. In the meantime, stay tuned for this weeks’ “Digestivo,” check out the photos above, and prepare for the coming of “The Great Red Dragon”!
