We’re thrilled to meet Mason Verger, played by Michael Pitt, as our story kicks over into end game and mini-series blasts its way toward the fight conclusion. This episode offers one of the most unnerving tableaus in the sabertooth Randal Tier display, and a thrilling climax that involves Will cutting the ginger.
A treat of an episode filled with guest stars Katherine Isabelle, Jeremy Davies, and Chris Diamantopoulos. We spend the first ten minutes discussing the character of Margot Verger and the differences between the books, movies, and this series, and Bryan Fuller’s versions of a character that was a bit of a stereotype in Thomas Harris’ work. Beyond that we get the strangest killer of the week scenario involving a horse and womb.
