Most thrilling episode of the entire series.
16 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Hannibal show at its finest , this episode was extremely well made it was the finest hour of television , the creativity used in this episode was top notch special thanks to Michael Rymer. The first 20 minutes of the episode was downright creepy it was such thrilling that i was jumping out of my seats at that moment and shouting no Francis no but due the great presence of mind Molly saved herself and his son but who could be saved totally from the wrath of the Dragon so she was hurt but she lived which was very satisfying.

Next 20 minutes was about the Will's reaction to the events occurred,then about Dolharyde breakdown as he failed to kill Will's family and then about the breakup between Reba and Dolharyde. First about Dolharyde breakdown , the physical torture was so well interpreted that you would feel sorry for him and hats up to Richard for the truly exceptional acting, he is the best Dolharyde among any adaptation for me. Then the interaction between Will and molly was so beautiful and the acting of Nina Arianda was outstanding , ten occurred the breakdown between Dolharyde and Reba in a deemed red lightning surrounding which was just perfect and was so heartbreaking as Reba thought she is a burden is the reason for the breakup without knowing the real reason that Dolhayde is sacrificing her love so that she is not consumed by the Dragon. And last but not the least the confrontation between Will and Hannibal was so intense and satisfying that is beyond words to explain and it was such a funny moment when will said Hannibal and his accomplice as the crazy sons of bitches and it was downright creepy when Hannibal said about giving will's address to Dolharyde .

But the last i forgot to mention was Hannibal behind mask , the scene made me relived the moment of Hopkins scene in the silence of the lamb. In overall this episode was excellent and the most thrilling episode of not only this season but of the entire series.
