    I agree with his comments on Izzard and Esparza.

    And all the interplay with Chilton and Lecter just cracks me up more, when I recall the movie version of SotL. Gawd. It just gives so much more depth to it, and especially the long-running feud/disdain between the two... and especially the whole cat and mouse thing about Chilton scurrying about trying to hide himself, and Lecter merely awaiting that one moment where he can pounce and maximize the terror and pain of his particular prey. (That's really how Hopkins played it at the movie's end, quietly stalking the oblivious Chilton like a panther stalks a small animal.)

    Yeah, I missed the analogy on first pass (mostly because I didn't see what the name of the episode was), but what a play on words. Everything is so carefully thought out.

    Also, the discovery of Miriam is obviously yet another scheme by you-know-who.... He's so meticulous, he wouldn't miss something like that bark. It was all planned for some reason.

    I'm still wondering when the season's opening scene syncs up with the flashback plot that we've essentially been watching for so many episodes now.

    I really liked this quote "I find it almost a redundant task to try to explain how Hannibal is one of the best television series on, since the evidence is all there."

    Will graham brings him down. They were friends, but he recognizes wound patterns on the victims match The Wound Man chart, lecter realizes he knows and comes at him from behind with a knife and cuts him up badly, then Crawford shows up? Something like that.

    I kinda remember when that happened to Edward Norton. And it seems like the exact same (close enough) thing happened to Miriam. I guess my point is it's NOT a mistake for Hannibal to lead Crawford to the cabin, but it is a mistake to leave his books lying around bookmarked at "How to Prepare Human Flesh for Friends and Neighbors."

    Oh, Jennifer, you've reminded me of another wonderful thing about this show. SCOTT EFFING THOMPSON IS ON IT.

    I don't think Hannibal and Will were ever friends in the books. In the books, Will went to talk to Hannibal about a victim of the rippers who he treated when he was working in the ER. Will only saw Hannibal twice and was attacked when he discovered the wound man diagram Hannibal accidently left out.

    you might be right, and I don't even know why I wrote they were friends as I reread my answer. I don't even remember writing it, I must have been rushing through it or thinking of other things at the time.

    Anyway, all the stuff in the TV show is obviously manufactured outside the book, none of the relational stuff and incidents and connections are present in the book. Red Dragon (which features Will) is after lecter has been in custody for some time, Will has healed from his gutting by Lecter, and doesn't even really want to be involved with the new serial killer case, he had retired. But Crawford begs him.
