On the season premiere of Angie Tribeca, Tribeca, played by Rashida Jones, needed information on a serial killer that seemed to have a thing for rich white guys. Fresh out of leads, Tribeca fortunately knew where to turn as there was a locked up serial killer that she knew might have information, Dr. Thomas Hornbein played by Chris Pine.
Dr. Hornbein bore a striking resemblance to Dr. Hannibal Lecter of Silence of the Lambs and Pine certainly embodied Lecter in mannerism and speech, even going so far as to smell "a child" on Tribeca. When Tribeca said she was there because she needed his help, he certainly saw the irony, comparable to "the way Miss Piggy considers herself desirable."
Before Dr. Hornbein gave Tribeca any information, he had a few demands, including being transferred to a Courtyard Marriott with an indoor pool and $670,000 in cash and prizes,"No matter what I bid."
But more than money, what he really wanted to know about was the screaming of the lambs, or rather, why it's so hard for Tribeca to let people in. When she revealed it was because she didn't know who she was, he thought that was "super heavy" and that she should probably see somebody.
