“Hannibal” Season 2 has ended and the waiting time has begun for the highly anticipated “Hannibal” Season 3. Good thing for recaps to reminisce about the last few episodes of “Hannibal” Season 2. Read on for MNG’s “Hannibal” recap of Season 2 Episode 10 “Naka-Choko.”
In “Hannibal” Season 2 Episode 10 “Naka-Choko,” Randall died. His remains were found in the Museum of Natural History. The BAU stepped in to investigate.
Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) interviewed Will (Hugh Dancy) in her motel room. Freddie was trying to write a book about the Chesapeake Ripper. She openly told Will about her suspicions of Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen). Oh, Freddie, be careful!
Margot (Katharine Isabelle) resumed her unconventional therapy with Hannibal. Hannibal scolded her for not having killed her brother yet. In the barn, Mason (Michael Pitt) was waiting for his sister to arrive. When she finally came, Mason was excited to show her his pigs. Now what was so special about these pigs? We will get into that later. The assistant lowered the chunk of meat which was shaped into a person. Not only that, it was dressed in Margot’s suit and smelled nice because it was sprayed with perfume. The awkward, we mean goose bumps, part was when Mason played a sound of people screaming.
Now let us get back to the question: What was so special about these pigs? Hannibal finally met Mason. Mason, perhaps feeling honored, offered the doctor some pigs. These pigs were extraordinary because they were trained to eat human flesh. Hannibal then served its meat to Will and Alana (Caroline Dhavernas).
Meanwhile, Margot, upon seeing what her brother did to the pigs, met Will for some comfort. They made love and while in bed, Will was having thoughts of Alana, who was doing the same with Hannibal. Then the Wendigo, the half-Hannibal half-stag creature, came into the picture.
The BAU was called to investigate about the murder of Randall Tier (Mark O’Brien). His remains were found in the Museum of National History. Randall’s face was seen in the cave bear’s skeleton. It turned out that his face was peeled and put on the bear’s. The animal’s limbs were replaced with his parts. Jack (Laurence Fishburne) discussed the case with Hannibal and Will. Will told Jack that Randall knew his killer.
During the dinner at Hannibal’s, Alana mentioned that Freddie talked to her and revealed that Freddie was digging about Will and Hannibal’s relationship. While Hannibal, in his murder suit, was waiting for Freddie to arrive at her motel room, she was busy prying on Will’s stuff. She saw Randall’s cave bear outfit. However, indifferent about Randall’s fate, she took a photo anyway. Then she opened the freezer only to find different kinds of meat. It would not be so surprising until she found a human jawbone. Upon closing the lid, voila! Will was there. He tried explaining to Freddie. But when you see a human jawbone on someone’s fridge, would you care to listen?
In response, Freddie pulled a gun and aimed it at Will. They had a struggle. When Freddie managed to run through her car, Will smashed the window and dragged her to the barn. Good thing, Freddie dialed a number on her phone while trying to get to her car. You see, her phone was connected to Jack’s. For sure, he received her screams in his voicemail.
Later, we see the FBI tracking her phone near Will’s farm. Will played ignorant and told the FBI that they were supposed to meet, but Freddie was a no show.
So what’s cooking at Hannibal’s kitchen? As Will referred to it, “a slim and delicate pig.” The men talked about how the meat fared in their respective tastes.
