I have to admit I am getting a little worried. Me and Empty spent the last week debating the existence of this other killer, and now it seems he finally won on that bet. I feel like this guy is coming from left field, assuming all of Hannibal's framing murders as his own, all just to bail out this guy he has never met. Meanwhile Hannibal's world is getting smaller, he feels a form of remorse and wants Will out, all the while still smirking over his intellectual superiority. I figure it would make much more sense if Hannibal was the one taking claim for his own kills, in a somewhat irrational attempt to free Will. As evident in the court scene, he wants a reality in which he and Will can be friends, but as his testimony was erased from records, as was that reality when he put Will there. When the prosecutor said that Will was probably the smartest person in the room, it cut to Hannibal smirking. If Hannibal takes pride in his intellectual superiority, wouldn't his magnum opus be not only framing a man, but convincing him otherwise and secretly coercing the courts into changing their minds as well? A prestige to a rather brutal trick. At least he would hope for such, but as I said before, this attempt would be irrational. Will seems to still know it was Hannibal that put him there, but recognizes that saying it now will get him nowhere. I would of loved to see this elaborate plan of Hannibal be his downfall.

Quote:
Will Graham: I thought you might enjoy the challenge. Find out if you're smarter than the person I'm looking for.

Hannibal Lecter: Then, by implication, you think you're smarter than I am, since it was you who caught me.

Will Graham: No, I know I'm not smarter than you.

Hannibal Lecter: Then how did you catch me?


Will Graham: You had... disadvantages.

Hannibal Lecter: What disadvantages?


Will Graham: You're insane.
I give the show the benefit of the doubt, and my misunderstanding won't get in the way of me enjoying it. But still, Dexter happened.

THANK FUCK

What an episode.

Salvage operation is completely off the table now though, but the betrayal he must feel will surely drive him to recklessness in some form.

EDIT: The episode literally shook LA.

EDIT: Motherfucker takes the culinary arts on a literal level.

I like him but I still get the feeling that he was kinda forced into the show. With that being said, Bryan Fuller and the team seems to be great weaving it in regardless, and to great effect. This is definitely a more intimate season, making these psychos of the week seem a little out of place. I still feel like I have to hope this show won't end up with shades of Dexter, but I think it gets somewhat hard to avoid when you also have to manage week by week appeal.

Red Dragon/Movie spoilers (forgot to mention that in my other post..). I've only watched The Silence of the Lambs, as far as Hannibal movies go, but from what I've read this is true:
