NBC is giving Hannibal fans a chance to feast on the show’s fourth episode, which was pulled from the schedule ahead of this week’s airing in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.
The network is incorporating footage from the lost hour into a series of ”cannibalized” webisodes that will serve as a narrative bridge between Episode 3 and this Thursday’s Episode 5 (NBC, 10/9c) — and TVLine has an exclusive first look at the debut installment (featuring an introduction from exec producer Bryan Fuller).
As Fuller explains, Ep 4 “details the relationship between Hannibal Lecter and Abigail Hobbs, played by Kacey Rohl,” explains Fuller. “As the series goes on, this relationship gets much more complicated and becomes a load-bearing element of our storytelling. So we wanted to make sure that you have all the scenes to follow the story along.”
In the first part below — more clips will debut on NBC.com — Dr. Lecter has a therapy session with Will Graham, and then secretly inspects the profiler’s home before getting a taste of blood.
We’re only three episodes into the addictive first season of “Hannibal,” but it’s already become clear that being able to empathize with the twisted thought process of a serial killer isn’t a particularly enviable talent, and being out in the field is definitely not easy for FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy).
In this week’s episode, “Coquilles,” Will and the rest of the Behavioral Science Unit are on the trail of a particularly sadistic killer whose bloody ritual includes cutting the victims’ back flesh and stretching it to look like angel wings. In The Huffington Post’s exclusive clip above, it becomes apparent just how much of a toll each case is taking on Will, much to the concern of his supervisor, Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne).
Elsewhere in the hour, Hannibal (Mads Miikkelsen) tries to drive a wedge between Will and Jack, while Jack’s wife Bella (Gina Torres) pulls away from him and begins seeing Hannibal as her therapist.
“Hannibal” airs on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

NBC has pulled next Thursday’s grislier-than-usual episode of Hannibal in the wake of this week’s Boston Marathon bombings, Variety reports.
The decision came after exec producer Bryan Fuller phoned the network to express his concern about the content of the episode, this season’s fourth, which involves children-on-children murder.
NBC will instead jump ahead to Episode 5. Viewers shouldn’t expect any continuity issues, per Variety.
As a result of the move, Hannibal‘s season finale will now air one week earlier on June 20

What’s the first information you consume in the morning?
I like The Guardian online because I feel like I’m getting a sense of what’s going on back home. I’m trying to get out of the habit of waking up and immediately turning on my phone and opening up The Guardian, but I have that slightly morbid desire to know if anything awful has happened in the world while I’m asleep.
What occupies your mind in the car or on the subway?
I’m kind of a news junkie, so on the subway, I find myself waiting until I get to a station that has 3G and then refreshing The Guardian to see if any news item has come up.
How do you listen to music?
Usually just iTunes. Listen, I’m a child of the ’70s and grew up in the ‘80s, and at this point, I think it’s just a little set in stone.
Anything good you’ve been listening to lately?
Plenty. Sbtrkt—that’s been rattling around in my head for a while now.
