The tragic hubris of Inspector Pazzi comes to a head in an episode that gave us severe déjà vu from the film version of Hannibal. We lament that his story was rather brief, and a single line change from the text leads Cooper down a complaint path to Watchmen. In the mean time Will and Chiyoh take the dream train through Narnia, and Jack says goodbye to Bella in Italy. This all leads to another fantastic fight scene, the ultimate throwdown between Hannibal and Jack, who no longer has any fucks to give.
The primary storyline is building speed as Will is becoming unhinged, Dr Chilton and Dr Gideon are back, and there is no killer of the week. Ahhh. Take it in. Then stick around for a crazy discussion of our HannibalLand Theme Park idea.
And if you, for fun, wanted to buy a shirt for HannibalLand, the greatest theme park of them all, you can do it here: http://www.redbubble.com/people/swingsetlife/works/12610212-visit-hanniballand
We completely dismiss the KOW (Killer of the week) as pointless, despite an amazing tableau in the totem pole and the presence of Lance Henriksen. We also debate the ethics of good and evil in a really great episode of Hannibal.
The first killer of the week that intrigues us also leads to the most implausible and hacky ending we’ve yet seen, but an entirely metaphorical killer plot introduces so many new and interesting threads.
