WHAT THE HELL IS THAT STETER SCENE
I’M GOING TO HAVE TO START WATCHING THIS SEASON DON’T I
I lied. Wasn’t working on my fic at all, I barely opened the document. Spent my time making Hannibal gifs. Oh well.
Aah fuck. Was watching the newest Hannibal episode and then my brother came upstairs to play a video game. So now I’m just annoyed that I can’t continue to watch it.
Thoughts so far though -
Shiiit that scene between Hannibal and Dr. Du Maurier was intense. Seems I was right - she saw enough of the real him to be rightfully terrified.
I don’t really know what to think about Will’s sudden turnaround. In Kaiseki he was absolutely convinced of Hannibal’s guilt and found that memory, and suddenly he’s asking him for help and saying he needs to trust him… it all came off feeling like his conviction hasn’t wavered but that he’s trying to get Hannibal to trust that he trusts him again. Will’s playing a different angle now - he’s no longer confronting him, because that didn’t and wouldn’t work. Will’s trying to manipulate Hannibal into believing him, believe that he’s starting to face his own guilt. Because Hannibal wants Will to believe the lies he’s told him.
So this all seems very obvious to me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want Will to actually fall for Hannibal’s lies. I want him to be honest when he asks Hannibal to help him, because he needs his help. I want him to put his soul and trust into the hands of the man who’s already completely destroyed him. I want him to slowly descend into darkness, and willingly let it happen.
Today has been a mixture of good and meh things (mostly good) and even if something happened tonight that might have ruined my mood any other time…
Ian’s tweet had already made my day. Goddamn that man is so fucking perfect.
