Hannibal just wants to help

Last night we saw that deep down Hannibal Lecter just wants to help people but they never seem to be grateful for it.  Maybe because that help always involves murder and cannibalism.

Hannibal - Season 2

The episode begins with Will Graham beginning his gambit to prove his innocence by pretending to feel guilty in front of Hannibal.  Of course Will still believes that Hannibal is the one responsible for his situation and only gets further validation by the end of the episode by none other than Hannibal’s own therapist played by Gillian Anderson.  At one point a lady from the FBI basically tries to bully Will into pleading guilty and fails, Will is going to prove his innocence even if he has to do it alone.  But he will probably not have to do it alone because it looks like he has Beverly from the FBI lab on his side even if she is not completely convinced yet.

The case of the human color palette murders continues this week and it begins with a gruesome scene of the latest victim waking up and ripping himself free of the the bodies he is attached to.  It turns out the killer was making a giant eye sculpture out of human bodies.  Hannibal is able to figure out where the killer is and pays him a visit before the FBI.  The moment when Hannibal pleasantly says hello to the other killer is kind of delightfully twisted.  In the end Hannibal helps this killer become a part of his art and transforms it from a piece about the meaninglessness of the world into a message to god and it appears that at some level this killer is genuinely grateful to Hannibal for it.

In other events Hannibal’s therapist severs ties with him and vanishes just in time because it looks like he was about come over and kill her.  Before her departure she tells Will that Hannibal probably is trying to help him in some way but that she also believes his claims that Hannibal is a killer.  I liked Gillian Anderson’s character but she is going to be on some other NBC show called Crisis so we may not see her on Hannibal again.

In this episode we also get to see Hannibal wear his evidence proof clear plastic body suit twice and I love that he still wears his regular tailored suit underneath it.

Hannibal - Season 2

From the previews it looks like Will Graham’s trial is coming up a lot sooner than I thought it would.  I am starting to wonder if maybe Hannibal is trying to orchestrate Will’s early release so that he can have his best buddy back.  I still say this is a show about friendship after all.
