(Cue fingersnaps and Dolarhyde getting ready to rumble with some Sharks)
SPOILERS UP TO (and including) HANNIBAL 3x12 and RED DRAGON (Book, Movie, whaddaya got), SILENT HILL (Movies and games), SPAWN (Todd MacFarlane gives good cape), SINISTER, SINISTER 2 (No real spoilers, just that it's terrible)
In this episode:
- CHILTON'S LIPS FOR THE LOVE OF THE NINE BLOODPISSING HELLS
- So, that happened.
- Chilton has layers in this adaptation. Get out your Shrek jokes now.
- All the love to Raul Esparza
- Nah, but for real, we spend a lot of time talking about the Dolarhyde/Chilton scene so... you know... strap in for that.
- Bedelia has moved into a very sinister, alien place in the Hannibal mythos
- Also, I didn't think we were gonna compare Bedelia to Scully at all, but whatever, here we are, everything's Hannibal and everything Hurts.
- We also talk about the origins of the Bedelia character as we know her.
- Will's character progression and how his somewhat-regression-y-motions during this episode are super really important.
- How certain are we that Will's responsible for Chilton's predicament and how conscious was he about this happening?
- The fact that Armitage has managed to make his performance so distinct from Fiennes while walking a lot of the same ground is frankly astonishing.
- Our (super-vague, unsatisfying) predictions for the way the finale is going to shake out.
- How exactly do you read the last scene between Dolarhyde and Reba?
- We're running lean this week this folks, so no real notes from timestamps to speak of, which is a shame, we know you love our sloppy excuse for wit.
- Lots of thanks to @princess_starr for reminding us how cruel Bryan Fuller can be and to @munin_and_hugin for pointing out the staples (to me at least).
- Ian delivers "I was lying... on yOUR BEHALF!" really well, if anybody's looking to audition voice actors, give him a ring.
- Ian mentions Bedelia talking about being Hannibal's bride, but I'm pretty sure she's making a Bluebeard reference in that scene.
- Just poking you with this one, Ian.
