This was the episode I've been waiting for. The episode where you don't really know what's real and what's a hallucination from Will. My most common reactions to the episode were 'Oh god,' 'oh shit,' and 'oh no.' The eerie factor in this episode is ramped up to 11, especially with the case that this episode features. This is the first time since the first case where the case itself is actually important and connected to the action and subtext of the show. I think that this was a brilliant way for Will's empathy to nearly get the best of him; for a while I was not sure if Will actually had killed someone. I really loved the ending, it was creepier than the normal for Hannibal, and I'm waiting to see why he killed the doctor and what the fallout is going to be with Will's condition. What exactly is Hannibal up to? I also have decided that I hate Fishbourne's characters,I love the character at the same time, the same way I hate Tywin Lannister but love him as well, he plays a great asshole in charge that you want to smack when he smiles. I look forward to seeing the developing relationship between Hannibal and Crawford in the future.
Also some more great news is the renewal of Hannibal for a second season, it will only be 13 episodes like this season is planned to be, but I think that's perfect, we can get all the tension and eerie relationship patterns without the possibility of things getting stretched too thin in a 20-24 episode season.
