Here’s everything you need to know about Clarice Season 1 Episode 5. This psychological horror series is an adaptation of Thomas Harris’s best-selling novel “The Silence of the Lambs”. Apart from that, it is also a direct sequel to the 1991 film of the same title as the novel. The series follows Clarice Starling’s life one year after the events of the film.

Following events in 1993, the series tells the personal story of Clarice after she gained fame for the Buffalo Bill case, during which she consulted Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

What Happens in Episode 4?
The title of the episode is “You Can’t Rule Me” and aired on March 4, 2021. Chloe Domont is directing this episode which is written by Gabriel Ho and Lydia Tefera. This is everything that happened in last week’s episode.
In the previous episode, we saw Clarice Starling and the VICAP unit where she worked at Deputy Assistant Attorney General Paul Krendler being investigated for common offenses. This happened because a witness was dying on their watch.
While Anthony Herman is at the bureau investigating a suspect’s death, Murray tells Anthony not to mind it. However, because Anthony is Krendler’s rival, he slanders the latter in front of Clarice. Anthony hopes to be on Clarice’s side and tell her the bureau is proud of him and he wants her to work for him. Anthony also wants to know what he thinks of Krendler’s behavior, which could benefit him in the investigation.
Later, Clarice tells Ardelia about her conversation with Anthony. Clarice also tells her that she doesn’t know if she can trust him. However, Ardelia was annoyed by this and said that she made a compromise because she was investigating the case with Anthony.
After that, we see Clarice and Shaan investigating the boss Rebecca Sherman. Meanwhile, Krendler is sitting in his office with Anthony and they discuss an old case. They discuss how Anthony got promoted because of the case and how Krendler did the dirty work for him.
Later, Clarice returns to her office and after some investigation, finds out that Dr. Felker was retracted five years ago. Clarice gets a call from Marilyn’s sister, Louanne, who asks if Marilyn is okay and why Clarice is looking for her. After Shaan and Clarice meet Louanne, the latter informs them that even though they are twins, she hasn’t spoken to her sister in years. Louanne also asked them to let them know if they had any clues about Marilyn’s whereabouts.
Tomas, Shaan and Clarice arrive armed at Marilyn’s residence and search the apartment. However, they couldn’t find it there. Besides, Clarice saw the picture on the wall, but she got suspicious because it was bent. After she took a picture from the wall, she saw a sheet of paper with all the names of the women Welling had murdered. In addition, Shaan finds another important piece of evidence, namely the chemical poison used to kill Welling. In the middle of their search, Shaan gets a call that they have to return as VICAP is about to close.
Later, Anthony tells Krendler how Krendler corrupted the evidence after Welling’s death. Later, Anthony gets a call and learns that Welling died of a stroke. After VICAP escaped, Murray asked Krendler if someone changed the coroner’s report. However, Krendler replies that he is not behind this but that other people are there. Clarice later learns that Marilyn booked tickets to Buenos Aires, but never flew.
After that, Clarice went to see Louanne and saw Louanne treating several patients. Clarice asks why Marilyn wants to go to Buenos Aires. However, just at that moment, the bell rings and Louanne leaves and says she needs to check the IV. Later, Clarice sees a woman lying on one of the beds and suspects it is Marilyn. The episode ends with Louanne rushing behind Clarice and stabbing her neck with a needle.
