Who is Hannibal Lector?
The secret origin of Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) devil is something that hasn’t been explored deeply in the show’s past, rather, the intricate details have been left to the linger in the shadows our dear doctor loves so deeply. But as Will Graham looks to gain traction over the man who left him and others for dead, it seems that no stone will go unturned in the hunt to gain any upper hand against Hannibal – even if that means that Will resorts to less than noble tactics to obtain that advantage.
Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is dead. Long live Will Graham.
After diving into the whys and wherefores of Hannibal’s (Mads Mikkelsen) European departure, Hannibal 3.2 “Primavera” focuses on some of the ones left behind the wake of his brutality. The show spends a time recapping the surgical provisional in which Will and Abigail were dispatched in the Season 2 finale – a sequence that was already particularly nasty – and then throws Carrie-levels of blood at it. Never has the term blood bath been more applicable than it is here. Memory plays a key role in “Primavera,” as it’s presence lingers over this episode like the high ceilings of the Florentine chapel where Hannibal places his ‘heart.’
