Clarice Got The most Unique Ending

The cancellation of CBS' “Clarice” has left many people perplexed, since it was one of the most unusual endings to a highly-publicized series. Originally planned to move from CBS to Paramount+ after the first season, according to Deadline, discussions between ViacomCBS and co-producer MGM have come to a halt, giving little hope that “Clarice” will return anytime soon, if at all.

Episode 1

Following her traumatic encounter at the hands of the legendary serial murderer Buffalo Bill, trainee FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling has been placed on administrative leave with federally required treatment sessions, but she refuses to identify herself as one of his victims.

Her ongoing involvement with convicted cannibalistic serial killer/forensic psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who assisted her in tracking down Bill before exploiting her to flee prison, has tainted her FBI reputation and relationships with her coworkers.

Episode 2

The FBI's VICAP team is dispatched to Tennessee, where local and federal law enforcement are engaged in a tense standoff at a highly armed militia camp. After running with a little child who has slipped out of the facility, Clarice takes the lead in the discussions. He informs the group's commander, Novak (Tim Guinee), of Clarice's presence.

Novak says that he will only bargain with her. Clarice, wearing a wire, enters the complex and befriends with Novak over their common Appalachian heritage.



Episode 3

Clarice wakes up in a hospital bed, chemically paralysed from the waist down and fitted to resemble one of the inmates. Marilyn Felker confronts Clarice, who is groggy after a heavy dosage of sedatives and painkillers, and threatens to put her in a chemically induced coma and place her on a ventilator if she misbehaves; Felker then sedates Clarice with additional medications.

Concerned by Clarice's absence, Ardelia convenes a meeting with Clarice's teammates to attempt to figure out what happened to her.

Episode 4

Clarice uses hypnosis to recall the guy she saw with Marilyn Felker during her attempt to flee captivity, but her recollections are muddled up with those of her meeting with Buffalo Bill. Krendler puts her on forced leave to recover from the incident, but Clarice is adamant on identifying her assailant and goes to Attorney General Martin to request that she override Krendler.

Martin accepts on the condition that Starling come to dinner with her and Catherine. Clarice's fingernail DNA is sent to Ardelia for examination, but the findings are ambiguous. Ardelia collects the sample after being dissatisfied with the findings and discovers that it was a forgery.

Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet were engaged by CBS Studios in January 2020 to produce a sequel series to the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs. The series was one of 14 pilot episodes commissioned by CBS in February 2020, and it was quickly turned into a series in March when CBS was shut down and unable to film pilot episodes due to the COVID-19 epidemic. The series was picked up by CBS on May 8, 2020, and a launch date of February 11, 2021 was confirmed in December, along with a trailer release.

Wrapping Up

The series cannot contain or make mention to Hannibal Lecter due to intricate franchise character rights concerns between Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and the Dino de Laurentiis Company.  “I'm still trying to figure out how the rights are shared,” Kurtzman said. But it's been freeing because we had no desire to write about Hannibal—not because we didn't enjoy the films or the show, but because it had already been done so effectively by so many others that it didn't seem new to us.
