Hannibal: Futamono

When a city councilman's body is found in a parking lot, intertwined with a tree, the artistry and missing organs suggest the work of the Chesapeake Ripper. Jack and the team race against time to catch the Ripper while he's still on his killing spree. When Will suggests the possibility that the Ripper is filling his pantry with the victims' organs, Jack crashes Hannibal Lecter's dinner party to collect evidence and test the meat for human DNA. Jack's growing suspicions drive Alana even closer to Hannibal, believing he is the victim of a witch hunt. Meanwhile, clues from the tree man help the BAU zero in on a location they believe the Ripper used. There they discover the most shocking revelation of Jack Crawford's career Miriam Lass alive.

Hannibal writes music in his room while Jack meets with Will. He tells Will that an employee almost killed Hannibal and he was the same man suspected of killing the judge and bailiff. Will says the judge was killed by the Chesapeake Ripper but didn't ask for Hannibal to be killed. Jack listens as Will tells him why the murderer kills in quick groups of three: if Hannibal waits too long, the meat will go bad. Jack insists that it's not Hannibal but Will suggests that if the Ripper is killing, Hannibal is planning a dinner party...

Episode Quotes
(Crawford visits will and talks about The Ripper)
Will: If the ripper is killing, you can bet Hannibal Lecter is planning a dinner party. You and I have probably sipped wine while swallowing the people we were trying to give justice, Jack. (Jack stops pacing) Who does he have to kill before you open your eyes?

(Hannibal and Crawford talk about Will.)
Hannibal: He's in a dark place where the shadows move, and it's not safe to stand with him anymore.

(Abel Gideon and Will speak from their cells, knowing Dr. Chilton can hear them.)
Will: In here is exactly where he'll get you, Abel. The moment I convinced the chief of staff to put you in a cell next to me, you were stamped with an expiration date. Anyone who gets too close gets got. He's the devil.

(Dr. Chilton shows Crawford a recording of Gideon.)
Jack Crawford: Abel Gideon is a lunatic.
Dr. Chilton: (Considers it) He is psychotic, not psychic.

(Dr. Chilton and Jack Crawford discuss the things being said in the hospital.)
Jack: Then you're aware of what Will is accusing Hannibal Lecter of.
Dr. Chilton: Yes, I am aware. And I am grateful that I have trouble digesting animal proteins, as the last meals I have shared with Hannibal Lecter have all been salads.

(Hannibal serves Gideon a plate.)
Gideon: How does one politely refuse a dish in circumstances such as these?
Hannibal: One doesn't. The tragedy is not to die, you know? But to be wasted. (Takes a bite)
Gideon: (Slowly takes a bite while Hannibal watches.) My compliments to the chef.

Cultural References
When the doorbell interrupts Hannibal with Dr. Bloom he tells her that the last time someone rang his doorbell that early, it was a census taker. That is a reference to a line from "Silence of the Lambs", where Hannibal claimed to have eaten the liver of a census taker with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

When he leaves his room, Hannibal walks by a set of samurai armor. It's not the same pieces but it is a nod to the armor Hannibal had in the movie, "Hannibal Rising".
