Fourth episode of the grisly serial killer drama [HANNIBAL] featured Molly Shannon’s character brainwashing kids, leading them to kill other children.

Episode four was slated to air next week. Peacock will instead move directly to episode five. While the drama is serialized, NBC claims there will be no continuity issues, noting that TV critics have seen episodes three and five, and not four.

NBC pulled the fourth episode of Hannibal scheduled to air next week. Because Molly Shannon can never apparently be forgiven for the Chechnyan cause that is Superstar: Dare to Dream.

Or, you know, because people are more comfortable censoring fictional things than actually confronting major issues.
