Someone on Hannibal will be taking a permanent dirt nap before the end of season 2.
Okay, okay, a lot of people will be knocked off courtesy of the series' various serial killers, but fans will also have to say goodbye to at least one major recurring character.
A well-known female character will kick the bucket by time the credits roll on episode 10, according to E!. Considering Hannibal's plethora of supporting roles, who should fans be afraid for? Browse through out list of new and returning characters and tell us what you think in the poll below.
Fredricka "Freddie" Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) - a writer for the crime blog TattleCrime.com, Lounds spent part of season 1 attempting to write a book on the Minnesota Shrike case. Abel Gideon (Eddie Izzard) later kidnaps her in an effort to attract the Chesapeake Ripper and then makes her assist him as he tortured Dr. Chilton (Raúl Esparza).
Kade Prurnell (Cynthia Nixon) - a new character in season 2, Prurnell is investigating Jack Crawford's (Laurence Fishburne) potential responsibility for Will Graham's (Hugh Dancy) actions
Mrs. Komeda (Leslie Bibb) - A novelist who often dines with Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen)
Phyllis 'Bella' Crawford (Gina Torres) - Jack's wife who is currently suffering from lung cancer. She is also another patient of Dr. Lecter.
Bedelia Du Maurier (Gilian Anderson) - Dr. Lecter's psychologist who may or may not know of his cannibalistic tendencies.
If the death does in fact involve a recurring character and not a series regular, Dr. Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) and Beverly Katz (Hettienne Park) should be safe.
