Did You Know?


Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) tells Will (Hugh Dancy) that he and the other doctor were together at 'Hopkins'. Referencing John Hopkins University. Anthony Hopkins was the actor that played Hannibal previously in the three following films: The Silence of the Lambs (1991), Hannibal (2001) & Red Dragon (2002). Also Mads played Hannibal for 3 seasons where Anthony played him for 3 movies. See more »


When drawing the clockface for Hannibal, Will displays what the neurologist calls "spatial neglect," more commonly known as "left neglect." This can occur when the right hemisphere of the brain is damaged - the individual does not perceive items in the left field of vision and it is not due to lack of sensation. However, Will can perceive the left side of a clock or a watch, as is shown when he looks at his watch and tells the time. It would be an exceedingly rare occurrence for left neglect to be confined to expressive domains (as in Will's drawing the clockface) and not affect receptive ones, as well. This would be particularly true if, as the neurologist stated, the encephalitis encompassed nearly all of the right cerebral hemisphere. See more »


Jack Crawford: [Talking at the Dr. Sutcliffe murder scene] Georgia Madchen followed you here, and while you're ticking away in the MRI, she does this to your doctor... Why him?
Will Graham: She can't see faces. Maybe she thought he was me.
Jack Crawford: All right, while we're at it, why you?
Will Graham: I don't know... I have a habit of collecting strays... I-I-I told her, tried to tell her the night I saw her, I tried to tell her she was alive. Maybe she heard me... Maybe that hadn't occurred to her in a while.

The scariest of them all!
2 January 2014 | by A_VoiceSee all my reviews

Dr. Hannibal's plans for will are getting cleared and clearer. One thing is for sure, he certainly does not plan to help Will in any way. This episode was probably the scariest of all the 10 episodes. By scary I don't mean gory, it has comparatively lower gory content than the previous episodes, rather its pure Horror.

As Will's condition worsens, Dr. Lector is able to diagnose it as a neurological condition rather than a psychological one, hence he refers Graham to a supposed friend of him, Dr. Sutcliffe, a neurologist. Where as another violent murder takes place in the town.

Dr. Lector obviously knows and understand the threat Will poses to to him. That's why he is either trying to prove him insane, not just in the minds of other, but his own min as well or he is preparing as a pig for slaughter. By driving Will insane and making him believe that he is insane he can make it sure that no one believes him when he does suspect Hannibal. Also it can be speculated that as the lines between Garret Jacob Hobbs and Will Graham divulge, he can be framed for the copycat killers murders, or he might actually end up murdering some one, which seems highly likely. The point is, Hannibal can make Will believe that he is actually Garret Jacob Hobbs, just as Chilton made Gideon believe that he is the Chesapeake Ripper.

The mystery of the killer in this episode is a gripping one until its revealed who was the culprit. The scenes regarding the culprit were very intense and scary, especially the last few minutes. The makeup artists did a pretty good job, and so did the cinematographers. Editing was top notch. It had a look like a movie to it.

Direction: Top notch.

Story/Screenplay: Great.

Acting: Mads and Dancy were great. Others were just fine, fitting their character requirements.

Music: Great and creepy at times.

Overall a nice episode.
