The totem pole.
1 January 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Dr. Hannibal in this episode is on his manipulative best, where he successfully manipulates a mentally unstable Will Graham. That's the Dr. Hannibal we know minus the glare.

Graham's condition keeps on deteriorating whilst another serial killer makes a move and probably his last one. Whereas, Nicholas Boyle's body is discovered. Will deduces that he was indeed killed by Abigail.

First hallucination, then sleepwalking, then hearing voices and now disassociating. There isn't a mental illness that Will is not capable of pulling out his sleeve. More importantly Will reveals why he didn't quit when he had the chance. According to the writers Will does not posses any supernatural abilities, but he has an extremely powerful ability to empathize with psychopath killers. But Abigail isn't one so how does he manage to solve the mystery of Nicholas' death? It seems only natural that he can empathize with anyone and the ability does not come in a "serial killer only" manner. But then why isn't he able to break through Dr, Hannibal's well tailored person suit? I think because Dr. Lector's manipulative ability and charm is much more stronger than Wills power. When Abigail was having dinner for a second I thought she recognized the taste of human flesh, it could have been interesting to see the consequences if that was the case. The serial killer introduced in this episode seems to be a bit off and fails to impress.

Direction: Good.

Story/Screenplay: Nice.

Acting: Mads was great, Dancy was good. Kacey was Average.

Music: Nice.

Overall a good episode providing a nice build up for the events to follow. Also I suspect Will might end up doing something bad, the way his condition is fading.
