Fans of NBC's 'Hannibal' might be going off the deep end in anticipation of a season 2 pickup, but it's nothing compared to what's happening to the show's protagonist Will Graham (Hugh Dancy). The latest preview for Thursday's upcoming "Trou Normand" sees Will reaching a breaking point over his gift for empathizing with serial killers, but will Hannibal help him cope, or encourage Will's darker tendencies? Check out a preview of the next 'Hannibal' to find out!
After Hannibal himself became a target in this past week's "Fromage," Will Graham will return to the spotlight with deepening issues in Thursday's all-new episode "Trou Normand." The latest clip from Thursday's episode comes to us courtesy of HitFix, and highlights that Will's method of uncovering killers appears to have taken a toll on him, causing blackouts and hallucinations with each new crime scene.
From NBC's official press release for "Trou Normand":
A SERIAL KILLER’S MACABRE TROPHY RAISES QUESTIONS AND CLUES TO MOTIVES AS WELL AS SECRETS - The BAU team hunts a serial killer who digs up his victims, creating a totem pole of their bodies as a macabre trophy. When Nick Boyle's (Mark Rendall) body is found, Jack (Laurence Fishburne) & Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) question Abigail (Kacey Rohl) about his death.
The resurrection of Nick's body enlightens Will (Hugh Dancy) to some of Abigail's secrets and Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) convinces Will to keep some of his own. Attempting to assert independence, Abigail agrees to write a book with Freddy Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) and in the process, reveals her biggest secret to Hannibal.
