Nurturing your pig before the kill!
29 December 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A rather degraded episode of the series, pretty disappointing as it is just the 4th episode. Also the fact of the supposed "child killing" was pretty hard to digest seeing the accuracy the murders were conducted with.

Families are being murdered in their houses. Meanwhile a debate as to Abigail's place of stay has arisen. With Abigail and Hannibal sharing on a little secret she easily agrees to move in with Hannibal. (We all know what's coming!).

A less philosophical and more of a simple plotted episode as one might argue. Also the introduction of one more serial killer just degrades the purpose of the series. Even if they have to introduce one, a better one could have been introduced. Also the episode was a little low on the trademark "gore imagery". Hannibal's taking in Abigail and conducting various experiments on her seems like feeding your pray to it's full before the kill. Anyways I don't suppose he is going to eat her anywhere soon as it might give him away. While its obvious he will eat her in the future. Will on the other hand seems to be having personality disorders as he was afraid. While he is still conscious about his being, but he is afraid he might give in and turn completely. Freddy looks for a direct approach which is a little "unrealistic" as you can't just threat a supposed FBI Agent just like that.

Direction: Average.

Screenplay/Story: Average.

Acting: Dancy Mads and Kacey are good, child artists are nice rest are just fine.

Music: Good.

Overall a lesser episode, still watchable.
