Hannibal Season 1, Episode 10 Review

Hannibal_promopic

Episode 10 really ramps things up when a woman is murdered in her own home, her mouth slit. Will for the first time contaminates the crime scene as he doesn’t remember getting to the crime scene only seeing himself murder the girl where previously he had been gutting a fish. Jack also becomes increasingly concerned by this but when Will says he is fine he lets it drop for now.

Hannibal Season 1, Episode 9 Review

Hannibal_promopic

Episode 9 really starts to build off the doubts and insecurities that Will has in the previous episode. This really focuses on Will, Abigail and Hannibal and the secrets they are respectively trying to hide and come to terms with. This mainly applies to Hannibal and Abigail, but it does apply to Will later in the episode. This episode starts with Will being called to a crime scene, which is a human totem pole made on 17 bodies in various stages of decay apart from the crown, which is a fresh victim.

Hannibal Season 1, Episode 8 Review

Episode 8 exploded, almost literally. We are introduced to a new killer who is making a twisted version of catgut strings from humans and even kills a man to use him as an instrument. First off let me say this is the most demented episode so far and the real kicker is we have been introduced to the killer before, but we didn’t know the evil he was hiding. Hannibal is continuing to see Franklyn despite the reservations he has, and Franklyn expresses concern for a friend who is saying some dark things.

Episode 7 continues to build on the relationships from previous episodes, but some new ones are introduced. We meet Franklyn, a patient of Hannibal’s that we met in a previous episode, but he seems to have developed an unhealthy obsession with becoming Hannibal’s friend. This is the first time we see that Hannibal is truly uncomfortable around someone else who has taken an unhealthy interest in him, while he does try to maintain a professional distance, Franklyn is pushy.

After the mention of the Chesapeake Ripper in Episode 5, I was very excited to get into this episode. There are a lot of things happening in this episode so it will be a little difficult to keep track if you are watching until things come together at the end of the episode. We are introduced to the Chesapeake Ripper case which as remained unsolved for two years until Freddie Lounds publishes an article saying that the Ripper has already been caught.

Hannibal Season 1, Episode 5 Review

Hannibal_promopic

Episode 5 really start to delve into the states of mind of all the characters as they try to catch the Angel Maker. The first thing we see is a beautiful dream sequence which leads to Will waking up in the middle of the road and he realises he has started sleepwalking. During a conversation with Hannibal, he explains that this is a physical manifestation of his lack of control and Will needs to consider whether what Jack has asked of him is too much for him to cope with. However, before Will can consider this too seriously a new case needs his attention.
