Double Your 'Hannibal' Pleasure

Tonight is the fourth week of NBC's deliciously diabolical Hannibal, but the network will actually be airing episode 5 out of sensitivity to those affected by the recent bombings in Boston (episode four revolved around a woman conditioning kids to kill).
But because episode four, titled Ceuf, also progressed several season-long storylines, NBC and creator Bryan Fuller have produced a series of six webisodes, that include important story-based advancements so tonight's fifth episode makes sense to fans (check all six out below).
Tonight's episode, titled Coquilles, sees Will and the team track a serial killer whose bloody ritual includes cutting the victims' back flesh and stretching it to look like angel wings (Silence of the Lambs fans might sense an homage here). Meanwhile, Lecter tries to drive a wedge between Will and Jack, who is also struggling with his wife, who has begun to see Hannibal as her therapist in an effort to come to terms with the fact she is dying!
Check out a sneak peek as Will catches on to Hannibal's plan!
Hannibal airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
