Hannibal infects Will with the Wendigo-Virus, which brings hunger for meat and blood. Will, unknowing of his condition, slowly descends into madness, his dogs don’t want to get near him and he finds himself in the guidance of his psychiatrist, which suggest to go on a hunting trip together in the woods, far from any civilization.

And Hannibal is proud to see that he isn’t the only one with an appetite for meat.
