Popular psychological thriller "Hannibal" will be back on NBC with Season 3 episode 5, titled "Contorno", this Thursday, 2 June, at 10 pm, which can be watched online here.

The upcoming sequel of the horror series will focus on Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), Rinaldo Pazzi (Fortunato Cerlino), Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Chiyoh's (Tao Okamoto) search for Dr Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and the various challenges they will face.

The official synopsis of "Contorno" states that the special agent and the Italian inspector will search for clues that will lead them closer to the cannibalistic serial killer's location in Florence. But, the promise of riches offered by Mason Verger (Joe Anderson) threatens to corrupt Pazzi's quest for redemption.

But, the greed of Cerlino's character will put him in danger as he will be killed by Lecter. One of the trailers show Lecter throwing Cerlino's body out of the window, according to a fan site.

The website also claims that Fishburne's character will encounter the forensic psychiatrist and it will be more crucial than the previous one, which was seen in Season 2 of the NBC drama.

Meanwhile, Graham and Okamoto travel to Florence, both on a mission to find the cannibalistic serial killer, but are at odds over the desired outcome. On the other hand, Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) will continue to work with Anderson's character and she grows concerned about the safety of all involved.
