    Nah, I think she will be the nuisance that sticks through the show to maybe its entirety.

    Episode 12: Well, there was the twist. Interesting spin on the original story.
    Still not sure if a death occurred. I'm not sure which would be worse, to be honest.

    I think next week is the finale.

    Armitage continues to be excellent, especially his work in episode 12. He's terrifying.

    And they finally came out and said what we've all already known, in Will's conversation with Bedelia... where she speculates on what is going on.


    The interesting part to me about the series is, while the buildup to this story line was a bit too long, it casts everything in a whole new light and provides unexpected depth/insights into the more straightforward plot of Red Dragon. There are so many resonances and nuances being brought out, due to the context of the prior seasons.

    Just watched episode 12.


    Holy shit. I've read the book, I'm a fan of Manhunter: I knew what was coming. I think that went just a little too far for TV, and for good taste. Full credit to Richard Armitage for being absolutely terrifying and Raul Esparza for being absolutely terrified; you might as well just give Armitage an Emmy now rather than drag it out until the award ceremony. But that was just fucking crazy. That episode may very well be the reason NBC had enough.

    I think it was due to the dropped ratings to be honest, and I felt like I've actually seen worse on this show....I'm surprised NBC lasted this long with it on that scale of measurement. But it was definitely an OMG episode, especially if you read the book and had an idea of what was coming . Or hell, even if you had no clue.

    At least most of the previous deaths portrayed on the show were very, very theatrical. This was just gruesome. And I know it's more or less verbatim from the book.

    I guess you could say there were elements of artistry to much of the violence in the series so far, where this was probably one of the most visceral bits of violence in the series. (It's not much different than what I see on Walking Dead all the time, honestly; last night I saw a woman chewing off one guy's face in the first few minutes of the show; but then again, that's AMC, not a major network for general audiences.)



    The whole thing was just so wrong; I would have been scared shitless.

    Dolarhyde clambering over the furniture =

    Sexist as it may be I think that they absolutely could not have done this to a female Lounds. I feel like torturing a petite woman in the same manner wouldn't have made it to air.

    I'll give you that.

    As long as it's a petite homme, everyone is cool(er) with it.

    I feel that a petite femme being victimized in this way would have crossed a "torture porn" line that couldn't be shown on TV. Even then, even with a petit homme, I feel like this crossed a line. At least Manhunter and Red Dragon (the film) left some of this to the imagination...
