What an awesome, kick ass opening salvo to kick off Season 2. The knockdown, brutal confrontation between Jack Crawford and Hannibal was intense and it kind of took me off guard in how the episode opened up. I thought for sure I had missed an episode because it seemingly jumped from Will's incarceration to this. But when the scene ends with Jack getting stabbed in the neck by a shard of glass at the hands of Hannibal and locked in a room with no way out, I was certain this was nothing more than a 'nightmare' for Jack. Wrong. This is actually part of the narrative as it's clearly stated in the title card that follows: 12 weeks earlier.

I like the setup immensely because the rest of the season will in fact be about uncovering the truth to Hannibal's real identity. What I also like about this episode is that it basically turns Will Graham into the same role that Hannibal plays in Silence of the Lambs as the 'go to guy' in helping solve the murder cases that the FBI can't do on its own. The final shot to close out the episode gave me the creeps with what appears to be what I would call a human collage with one of the victims waking up but can't move because he has been crazy-glued in place.

As with Season 1, this has some crazy, way-out-there imagery. I said it before and I'll say it again, I gotta give props for NBC not flinching when it comes to the gore of the series. My biggest concern when I first heard about this coming to TV was that the show would fail because it would no doubt be watered down. I couldn't have been further off the mark on that assumption.

The opening scene was brutal to watch. Even I was squirming in my seat as the guy literally tore himself apart from the human mural he was glued too. Painful. I was happy that he had gotten out and was pulling for him to escape. It looked promising and that he would do just that. So, when he miscalculated the jump and hit the side of the cliff on the way down to the river below, I was deflated. Sigh. Overall, another fantastic episode. The writing just keeps getting better and better. I knew Gillian Anderson's character wouldn't be around for much longer given the fact that she has another show (Crisis) on NBC set to debut. I am however surprised that she made it through the episode unscathed. I figured that Hannibal would silence her rather than let a loose end walk freely. Maybe she will be coming back in a future episode if her new show doesn't pan out.

Nasty. I'm still stunned that what the series is showing on the screen is making its way onto Broadcast TV airwaves. I can only imagine that parents across the country are throwing a hissy fit, even if the show is aired late at night. The "hanging" Judge scene, with his head cut open, his brain and heart on the scale may have gone too far. But I haven't heard any rumblings about it though. So, maybe it flew under the radar or people are just jaded now that they don't even notice anymore. Whatever the case may be, NBC is still sticking to its plan to have the best looking series on TV, albeit gory. It was great to see Dr. Chilton on the stand, "testifying" in court against Will. Raśl Esparza portrayal of Chilton is great. You can't help but go back to Silence and make the comparisons. He is painting a more vivid image of the character to great effect.

Takiawase




A lot of great....and very creepy things about Takiawase. Amanda Plummer as the 'Honeycomb' killer (my name I'm giving her since she wasn't given one in the episode) in particular gave me the heebie jeebies. Gina Torries "death" was poetic in what she was giving her Husband Jack (sparing him the anguish of a long goodbye) and herself (peace). I, along with everyone else that watched this thought she was gone. When Hannibal saved her from her suicide, I thought he was doing it so that he could kill her himself. He didn't. Really not sure he did save her. Did her save her so that Jack could have that long goodbye or did he save her because he wants to see her suffer? Something to ponder. But it's the ending that made this episode a must-see when Beverly (Hettienne Park) finally gets the proof she needs regarding Hannibal. The only problem is that she finds it in his lair in the basement. Gun shots ring out. Fade to black. To be continued.....

It's not going to end well for her based on who and what he is. The only way I see her surviving is that he keeps her alive (but held in captivity) until the last episode of this season and I just don't see that happening. I like the character and don't want to see her go. But, it was bound to him as soon as Will got her involved in looking for evidence that would exonerate him and implicate Hannibal. It was cool to see Eddie Izzard and Kacey Rohl return in their respective characters via dream sequences. Stellar episode.

These episodes are like mini-movies. Amazing writing, acting, production. Everything. I can't sing high enough praise for what we get on a weekly basis on basic cable. Yes, I've already said as much before. Just telling you guys that you need to be watching this. Anyway, just as I knew how it would play out, Beverly wasn't lucky enough to survive. But it's the manner in which she is 'displayed' in this episode is really pushing the envelope. To see her sliced and separated into thin pieces, encased in glass was very unsettling. We finally get some insight into the 'Nurse' at the psychiatric hospital where Will is currently incarcerated. I suspected that he was some kind of killer. I just didn't have a clue that he was the one that killed the bailiff.

Another stellar episode that proved to be Epic by the end. I'm amazed that the writers are very consistent with top shelf stories and this one is no different. A couple of stomach churning moments that will make you want to vomit. One is obvious, the other...not so much. Alana sleeping with Hannibal is at the top. It defies logic that she would end up sleeping with him of all people. We know that he slept with her to use her as his alibi. But what reason does she have, other than "funeral sex". She seems to be falling for him, which is just odd given the fact that she hears nothing but him being the Ripper. The other gag inducing moment is of course Gideon literally eating his own leg. Unlike Ray Liotta's character in the movie Hannibal, in which he was drugged and impaired and not aware that he was eating his own brain, Gideon wasn't going to let himself go to waste. How does one top this? How about having Jack Crawford finding Miriam Lass (Anna Chlumsky) who we all thought long gone as another victim of the Ripper.
