As the “Hannibal” Season 3 premiere inches closer – though a date has yet to be announced – more and more details are emerging to whet fans’ appetites. NBC has released the titles for a few of the episodes, including one that promises to be one of the series' most shocking.
The names of the first three episodes of the series will be (in order) “Antipasto,” “Primavera” and “Secondo.” The Italian-inspired titles make sense considering what fans already know about the show.
When “Hannibal” Season 2 left off, Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) had stabbed Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and left him for dead before fleeing the country with Dr. Bedelia Di Maurier (Gillian Anderson). When Season 3 picks up, Lecter will be hiding out in Italy with Bedelia under a fake name and identity. However, Graham will be trailing him to the country and -- with a little help from Inspector Rinaldo Pazzi (Fortunato Cerlino) -- tracking the killer down.
There was one more episode title released for Season 3 -- episode 7, “Digestivo.” Though no plot description was revealed, the provocative title apparently will be accompanied by one of the show’s most shocking episodes yet. Referring to a gruesome Season 2 scene where a body was found in the carcass of a horse with a dead bird inside, “Hannibal” creator and executive producer Bryan Fuller tweeted that there are even stranger things to come in Season 3.

What will happen in the uber-odd episode 7? And will Graham be able to track down Lecter? Fans will have to wait for the show's return to find out.
“Hannibal” Season 3 is set to premiere in late spring to early summer of 2015.
