MANHUNTER reference? Check.

X-FILES reference? Check.

Have you been reading my thoughts?

Haha, great minds, as they say. :) I missed the reference to Hannibal Rising in the opening dream scene. Haven't read that book or seen the movie.

I knew from the previews last week, that it was a guy in a "suit" right away, since I think they flashed a clear image of him in it in preview.   I will say, he was a little too agile and quiet jumping up on that semi wearing his suit.  However, I forgive a good show a lot of small logic gaps like that.

Overall this ep was just ok to me, I don't think it was bad but it didn't stand out from some of the others.  

I'm going to have to revise my thoughts from the last episode.   I guess Will really was going to shoot the social worker last week without premeditations of "baiting" Hannibal at all.   It makes me wonder if Will's extreme empathy and proximity to Hannibal is what is escalating his "darker" thoughts.    If Hannibal was removed as an influence would he stop having murderous thoughts?

I'm also ready for an update on Chilton and Miriam Lass.   I know Chilton appears dead, but the fact that they haven't mentioned him nor was he dead in the books, makes me wonder.

Oh and what's odd, is that my biggest worry in the episode was that the animal suit killer was going to kill all of Will's dogs.   People getting killed, par for the course on the show, but the dogs get threatened and I get nervous.

isgrimner, I was thinking the same thing about the dogs.  People, F@ck 'em!  Dogs, oh hell no!

Not since Bonnie and Clyde has murder been so romantic.

In this week's episode: We start out with Will having a really kinky SM/BD fantasy dream about Hannibal where those two profess their undying love to each other (murder husbands, just sayin'). I wouldn't be surprised if Hannibal is having a similar fantasy dream. Will wakes with a start and he is so turned on, he is gripping the sheets.

Jack eats more people, but this time we just think he's stupid for not realizing its people. I'm thinking he does know, but it's so damn delicious that he doesn't want to stop. Hmm? Kind of like how Will is starting to feel about murder?

Then later we think that Hannibal is cheating on Will because he is molding another serial killer who isn't even nearly as pretty as Will and we're a little peeved. Until we realize, Hannibal is actually sending Randy to be killed by Will. Yes, they make it seem like Hannibal sent the guy to kill Will to get back at him for Will trying to kill him, but it is clear to me that Hannibal knows Will is going to kill Randy and sent him there so that Will can experience his first (well, second) kill; one of Hannibal's most thrilling sexual fantasies, for sure.

Hannibal is having as much fun with this as we are. The people in his life are like the pieces on a chessboard and he is the master chess player moving everybody around to do what he wants them to do and then enjoying watching how they interact with one another and what results from that. This man knows what he's doing at every turn.

Thank you Brian Fuller for not killing Buster, as we really would have hated you for that.

Margot is hot and we hope she's going to get it on with Will.

Later, at Hannibal's office, Hannibal guides Will to talk dirty to him and Will talks real dirty, because Will is such a little slut.

Hannibal is like: BONER BONER BONER, close up BONER

Will Graham, can you get any sluttier?

If anything else happened that didn't have to do with Hannigram, I didn't notice it.
The entire Hannigram fandom had a collective orgasm when we watched the preview.

Next week: Hannibal sweeps the stuff off the top of his desk in one motion and throws down on Will's sweet ass.

And OMG! Can we talk about Hanni's hat? What the god damn holy hell, Hannibal?
Never mind. Let's not talk about Hanni's hat.

My prediction for the upcoming sex scene in episode 10:

It will involve Hannibal and Alana getting in on, Margot and her brother getting in on, and Will using his empathy to tune into both of these pairs simultaneously and getting on with himself.

But it could just as easily be Will getting it on with Margot but then I’m not sure who the fifth person would be.

Another scenario (less likely): Hannibal / Alana / Freddie Will / Margot

Your thoughts?

 I love this: it comes from ShallowGraves, which is a.org (apparently Mania doesn't let me include links in comments)

"Over at a dark and remote truck stop, a truck driver hears a strange noise when some creature leaps on top of his rig. Like Chilton before him, he decides to investigate because he’s never seen a horror movie in his entire life."   -Marena
