You know that episode of Hannibal that got pulled last week because of sensitivity to real-world events in Boston?
Now you can see it – or at least the portions that Hannibal executive producer Bryan Fuller feels are essential. The episode “Ceuf” has been divided into six discreet webisodes, all under four minutes.
The plot line that featured guest star Molly Shannon as a teacher encouraging students to kill other students has been excised entirely.
But as Fuller explains in a forward to the first segment, the relationship between Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) and young Abigail Hobbs (Kacey Rohl) becomes so integral to the story as the season moves along, he felt fans would want to see the pertinent scenes from the fifth episode.
There are also some gripping therapy sessions in which Hannibal and Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) share parts of their damaged backgrounds.
Enjoy the footage. Or as Fuller chillingly suggests, “Thank you for watching. And bon appétit.”
