Did You Know?


Hannibal remarks to Will about his aftershave. The dialogue mimics that of Red Dragon where Hannibal tells him he still smells of the after shave with the ship on the bottle. See more »


Size of wings made by human skin doesn't match the size of skinned area on victims. Skin wings are too big compared to skinned areas. See more »


Will Graham: Did you just smell me?
Dr. Hannibal Lecter: Difficult to avoid. I really must introduce you to a finer aftershave. That smells like something with a ship on the bottle.
Will Graham: Well, I keep getting it for Christmas.

The blurring lines.
30 December 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The lines between a serial killers mind and that of a profiler, specifically Will are blurring more and more as the time progresses. He is slowly losing control over his body resulting into sleepwalking.

With Will unable to sleep properly (mainly sleepwalking and bad nightmares), he reconsiders his decision to carry out his job. Meanwhile a suppose angel maker is on the lose.

An improvement from previous episode. Also a better and more philosophical serial killer. I don't like the concept of introducing a serial killer every episode but I'm beginning to accept it now. This episode fulfills the gory imagery missing from the previous episode, but still falls behind the mushrooms one (IMO). The killer in this episode is revealed before the action takes place, which negates the mystery element of as to "who the killer might be?", which is actually good for a change. Only the usual "why?"(reason for the actions) is prevalent and is fascinating and deep. It also has some usual Hannibal philosophical conversation scenes, and to the viewers delight, over a dinner table.

The back story of the psychopath killer strikes an element of interest, concern and realization for Jack Crawford. Which brings out some top notch acting from Lawrence, which he was potentially capable of but wasn't able to bring it up due to lack of character development in the previous episodes. This episode also has an emotional front which wasn't present up-till now in the series.

Direction: Strong.

Story/Screenplay: Well written and strong.

Acting: Lawrence may not be as good as Dancy and Mads, but is certainly excellent. Previously his character didn't require much of extraordinary acting.

Music: Excellent.

Overall a good episode, but not to be watched on a dinner table.
