Lecter's patient Franklin Froideveaux worries that his friend Tobias may be a psychopath, but Franklin's growing obsession with Lecter is what concerns the latter more. Graham investigates the murder of a Baltimore musician who had his throat opened and a cello neck inserted through his mouth. Graham, with Lecter's guidance, interprets this as one killer serenading another. Graham's mental stability deteriorates further when he begins having auditory hallucinations of animals in pain and when his romantic feelings for Alana Bloom are rejected. Written by wiki

Fromage: French for Cheese See more »


Contrary to what is shown and discussed the vocal cords run horizontally not vertically in the throat. They are on average only 3/4" to 1" in length. Thus it would be impossible to treat and play them like strings. See more »


Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier: You spend a lot of time building walls, Hannibal. It's natural to see if someone is clever enough to climb over them.

Goldberg Variations
8 February 2014 | by mockturtleSee all my reviews

More action than previous, nice fight sequence. At the end, the song Hannibal begins to play is the first of the Goldberg Variations (Bach).

This is notable because the best part of Ridley Scott's film of "Hannibal" (which was pretty awful) was the opening sequence of surveillance tape of Hannibal set to the Goldberg Variations. Boom.

Apparently I have to throw in a few more lines here so I will just note how weird an assertion it is that this takes place in the same universe as the other Bryan Fuller TV shows.

First of all, the piemaker would make some seriously Titus Andronicus pies here; second of all, he could just wake someone up and they'd say Hannibal! Although if that means we will get a Jewel Staite (Wonderfalls) sighting then I'm in.
