I'm catching up on episodes now. I had put my watching on hold, pending news of a 2nd season or not.
I have to say that the clock face test Will takes for Hannibal was really eerie. Just the way they film it where he sees it as perfectly normal and then blank-face Hannibal sees a totally screwed up clock. Just...disturbing.
I can't get Hannibal's endgame here. He seems to be telling Scully that he likes Will, but he is purposefully screwing with Will in the biggest way possible. Holding back encephalitis information? Couldn't that kill Will? Or at least drive him totally over the edge? Does Hannibal want him to fall over the edge because he thinks Will will understand him at that point?
It's been a long time since I read Red Dragon...so, I forget exactly what Hannibal wants/needs from Will. I do remember his relationship with Clarice was always one of mentor/mentee...Will is more of an equal but opposite.
I'm not sure...curious to see how they continue to escalate this. I still have 1 or 2 episodes of this season to dive into.
