Rooster Recap: ‘Hannibal’ 2.5: “Mukozuke”

Season 2 continues to be excellent. This episode sees Will almost crossing a line, and Hannibal coming even closer to an undignified end. Things are moving quickly now. We’ve still got eight episodes left in the season. We all know what’s going to happen eventually, but it’s getting harder to tell when it will. And…
