A cannibalistic Masterchef!
31 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

The Chesapeake Ripper a.k.a Dr. Hannibal Lector is still at large to Jack Crawford's dismay, as revealed in the previous episode. This episode is probably the best episode thus far, surpassing the previous episode for its brilliance, elegance and character development, particularly Dr. Lector.

The story picks up where it left last week with Jack being haunted by the guilt of Miriam's death, and for the first time he doubts himself for sending Will after the Ripper. We see Dr. Lector re stock his food supply and prepare an exquisite cuisine.

The best element of the episode was probably the elegant editing and the background score. With Dr. lector preparing his dishes in a MasterChef-ish manner with his usual ingredients to some great opera music and Will and Companies' preparation of "list of missing organs", to some wonderful psychiatrist - patient conversations, every thing was awesome. The writer continues to tease the viewer with some tongue in cheek witty one liners. "A feast presents itself", "Someone with short bowels or he is using them to prepare sausages", "Spleen!?" and "Nothing here is vegetarian - Bon Appétit!". I was pleased to see the story being concentrated on the character after whom the series is named and not some serial killer or Will Graham. The episode enjoyed the best level of character development thus far. And also a special mention for commendable Cinematography.

Direction: Strong.

Story/Screenplay: Extremely teasing and gripping.

Acting: Due to excellent acting by Mads, I'm getting used to see him as Hannibal. Lawrence and Dancy are good too. Gillian Anderson and Dan Fogler were commendable.

Music: Superbly edited music score, the best thus far.

A mouth watering episode, plunging deeper and deeper into the mind of our favourite Cannibal.
