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.
