Hannibal: Reveles  
The penultimate episode was pretty low on the gore and pretty high on the OMGWTF!!


Shockingly, I think Abigail's life managed to suck the most out of everyone's, including Will's. First, she got saddled with a cannibal dad then she got more or less adopted by a SECOND cannibal dad. She sort of trusted Will to try and help him and got promptly thrown under the Will Graham Is NOT OKAY RIGHT NOW Bus before running into Second Cannibal Dad only to discover what he's been up to. This girl's life is (was) tragically cursed.

This seemed to be the first episode where Hannibal genuinely looked trapped. I could almost believe (and maybe I do) that he just had Operation Frame Will as a backup but then decided in this episode that he had to fully unleash it. Actually, the scene where Will told him his plan to take Abigail back to the cabin seemed to be the moment where Hannibal regretfully (?) decided that it was time.

Poor Will seemed so relieved for awhile there that he was feeling normal and clear-headed. Right before he wasn't.

And we got to see that Bedelia Du Maurier is in fact real. And clearly Hannibal killed her patient. CLEARLY. I'd be more shocked if it turned out he had nothing to do with it. I'm not sure if I'm disappointed or not that she wasn't just Hannibal's imaginary therapist. I guess I'm not disappointed. As interesting as the idea was, it felt a little TOO bizarre.

Much like Crawford, I rather missed the presence of Beverly Katz. She is one character I found annoying when the show started but got to absolutely love toward the end. She, Price, and Zeller are my favorites in many ways after Hannibal and Will. Not having her in the episode though still having the other two felt a little strange. Everyone better be present for the finale!

I was just O_O the whole episode! :D I loved it! I really liked how they can terrify us without gore!
Last weeks when Hannibal asks Will to smile and he smiles back! :S
And this time with Abigail! :S
This show is so amazing! Why isnt it a 22 or 23 episode long season? Ahhh how will I wait a whole year for next season?
I loved to see Hannibal nervous this episode. When he was pacing in front of the window at Bedelia and his fingers when Will was telling him he was thinking clearly about the copycat! :D :D :D
And how did he convince the patient attacking Bedelia to swallow his tongue during the attack? He truly is a murder wizard! :D

I found it a little disconcerting to see Hannibal nervous. But I really enjoyed how finally, FINALLY the noose was starting to tighten on him and I feel like we got a glimpse of what he'd be like once his secret gets exposed.

And how did he convince the patient attacking Bedelia to swallow his tongue during the attack?

A person can't voluntarily swallow his tongue so if Hannibal did convince him to do this, he is indeed a murder wizard. But seeing as how he also was able to enter Georgia's sealed chamber, leave a comb, and take off her grounding bracelet, all without her waking up, why should I be surprised he was able to get someone to do the impossible?
