Beth LeBeau is found murdered, having drowned in her own blood as a result of her face being cut into a Glasgow smile. Graham's mental state continues to sharply decline; he loses hours at a time and when a vivid hallucination causes Graham to contaminate the crime scene, Lecter refers him to a neurologist, an old residency colleague, Dr. Sutcliffe.

When drawing the clockface for Hannibal, Will displays what the neurologist calls "spatial neglect," more commonly known as "left neglect." This can occur when the right hemisphere of the brain is damaged - the individual does not perceive items in the left field of vision and it is not due to lack of sensation. However, Will can perceive the left side of a clock or a watch, as is shown when he looks at his watch and tells the time. It would be an exceedingly rare occurrence for left neglect to be confined to expressive domains (as in Will's drawing the clockface) and not affect receptive ones, as well. This would be particularly true if, as the neurologist stated, the encephalitis encompassed nearly all of the right cerebral hemisphere. See more
