A nurse at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane is brutally murdered by a patient, Dr. Abel Gideon, in a manner reminiscent of the "Chesapeake Ripper", who hasn't committed a murder in two years, the same number of years Gideon has been incarcerated. While Graham tries to discover whether Gideon truly is the Ripper, Crawford receives a phone call, apparently from the real Ripper, who plays the recorded voice of Miriam Lass, a trainee Crawford had consulting on the Chesapeake Ripper case two years previously when she suddenly disappeared.

Did You Know?


Agent Lass states that the Chesapeake Ripper took from a victim, among other things, the thymus. The thymus is a gland that is part of the immune system, and atrophies from birth. By adulthood, it's little more than a nondescript fat nodule just above the heart. There would be no point in taking it, and even identifying it would be tricky. See more »

Thr best episode thus far!
30 December 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Yes I find the interactions between Will and Hannibal more intersecting than the mysteries of serial killers. But this episode was a brilliant exception. Not only we see some commendable performances we have a nail biting mystery involving an infamous Chesapeake Ripper (We all know who that is!).

Dr. Gideon after faking his illness kills the nurse assigned to him in a similar way to another inactive serial killer known as the Chesapeake Ripper. As to if is the actual alias or not is yet to be discovered.

Just as the novels' version of Chesapeake Ripper and how he was caught, there is a certain level of similarity in the episode. The identity of Chesapeake Ripper is unchanged where as the first person to know about him has changed, although in the similar manner as it was staged in the novels. A new character is introduced namely Miriam, who is a spiting image of Clarice. The character also brings in the soft side of stone hard Jack Crawford. It was pretty humorous to see Dr. bloom, Crawford and Graham in female Freddy Lounds office.

Their is relatively a low amount of Will Graham in the episode as it generally revolves around Jack's relation with Miriam, and the Chesapeake Ripper. This episode also stages the first actual killing process being shown (barring injuring Abigail). Some brilliant piece of writing and a well intended pun in Lector's conversation, "Don't give me ideas Mr. Chilton". Also it was pretty nostalgic to see the Baltimore State Hospital and Dr. Chilton.

Direction: Excellent.

Script/Story: Witty, gripping and strong. Also something different from the usual.

Acting: A surprise to see a grown up "My Girl" Anna Chlumsky, who fits in the role perfectly. Lawrence stands out as more and more script is offered to him. Mads is awesome.

Music: Insanely beautiful.

A treat of an episode, very enjoyable.
