Jack interviews Hannibal’s inept shrink (Gillian Anderson). Backstory and secrets are revealed. Jack fails to take note of all the dead people around Lecter and instead allows Hannibal to play him. This bored. Hannibal is boringly fiendishly evil and is an improbably well-resourced serial killer.
Will is coming to some realizations, too bad he is still dim. Hannibal gurns. Jack finally uncovers Abigail’s role in her father’s murder spree. Where was Abigail’s mother during all this murdering? Hannibal’s game comes towards the end and Jack just automatically accepts his lies. Will has another convenient blackout. Abigail is stupid and this was stupid.
“It’s not that I think Dr Lecter is dangerous, I don’t.”
“He’s had some pretty strange relationships with some of his patients.”
“This wasn’t supposed to be my life.”
“Whatever you’re doing with Will Graham, stop.”
“What did you tell him?”
“This is venturing into the paranoid.”
“How’s the book coming?”
“She’s got the taste for it now.”
“I was the lure.”
“Jack Crawford was right about you.”
“There is something wrong with you.”
Dr Hopper (Raphael Sbarge of ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ and ‘The Guardian’) is murdered. Regina just can’t stop being evil. Flashbacks show Charming in a pelt, Regina’s idiot doormat father being a doormat and how the awful Regina adopted the motivation and malevolent soul of her mother. They should have killed her when they had the chance. Why did Regina lock herself into Storybrooke with her victims? WTF is wrong with her and her bad acting?
Rumpy prances around lisping and playing his long game. Dr Hopper is described as kind, he wasn’t. Emma has inherited her mother’s room temperature IQ. Belle is ever useless. There are plot contortions. Regina is ungrateful and rages on about ‘her’ son. There is a plot twist and this was crap.
“Go take yourself for a walk.”
“There’s no telling what she’ll live to do.”
“Who’d want to frame her?”
“I will not let you poison Henry against me.”
“What other friends do you have?”
“This cricket will chirrup.”
Flashbacks show how a bombing nearly killed Miles as he and Monroe bonded over their fascist uniforms and love of hair gel. So Monroe avenged himself on the bomber to the objection of Miles and Nora. In the present day, Monroe has a deranged tantrum and Miles finally seems to accept that he made his BFF into a monster. Miles lets Monroe escape and the M/M sitch goes on.
Rachel and Miles apparently love each other, oh come on. Ben doesn’t seem to matter. Charlie lurks. How did Charlie grow up in the Monroe Republic and never know her Uncle Miles ran it with his BFF? Rachel is selfish, Charlie still can’t act, Aaron hangs out with the people who have lied and manipulated him for years and Rachel turns the power back on.
Which turns out to be a mistake as she was the unwitting pawn of some mouth breather with his own agenda. ICBM’s are launched, there is ranting and a final scene shows a United States colony (with wooden sailing fleet) at Guantanamo Bay. WTF? I think I’ll skip season 2.
“It’s the only reason why I followed you into any of this and you tried to kill me for it.”
“You have a borderline erotic fixation on Miles Matheson. There I said it.”
“You asked me why I tried to kill you. You’re asking the wrong question Bass. Ask me why I couldn’t. We’re still brothers.”
“When you burn down the old, new things grow.”
“It’s time to go home Mr President.”
