Lecter's patient Franklin Froideveaux worries that his friend Tobias may be a psychopath, but Franklin's growing obsession with Lecter is what concerns the latter more. Graham investigates the murder of a Baltimore musician who had his throat opened and a cello neck inserted through his mouth. Graham, with Lecter's guidance, interprets this as one killer serenading another. Graham's mental stability deteriorates further when he begins having auditory hallucinations of animals in pain and when his romantic feelings for Alana Bloom are rejected. Written by wiki

Did You Know?


Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) plays J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations on the harpsichord in his office. This piece of music was first associated with the on-screen character of Hannibal (Anthony Hopkins) during the escape sequence in The Silence of the Lambs (1991). See more »


Contrary to what is shown and discussed the vocal cords run horizontally not vertically in the throat. They are on average only 3/4" to 1" in length. Thus it would be impossible to treat and play them like strings. See more »


Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier: It's nice when someone sees us, Hannibal. Or has the ability to see us. It requires trust. Trust is difficult for you.

The Duel !
1 January 2014 | by A_VoiceSee all my reviews

An interesting episode, though not as good as the previous one. I missed Jack whining to get to the Chesapeake Ripper, but it was well compensated with a thrilling story and a nice duel.

Franklyn who is obsessed by Dr. Lector suspects his friend for the recent murder discovered by Jack and Co. Whereas, Will's condition is deteriorating day by day. As expected sparks of love are kindled between Graham and Bloom.

Graham is now hearing animals whale and scream. With every case he takes up his condition is worsening day by day. On the other hand, Hannibal finds himself frustrated by a patient of his who is obsessing over him. The story leads up to a gripping climax, likes of which were yet to be seen in the series, especially Dr. Lector in action. The psychopath killer featured in this episode was more of a scientific one than a philosophical one. Also it's strange to see someone smart enough as Dr. Lector. Apart from the awesome sound and music, the cinematography was likely the best out of the 8 episodes.

Direction: Nice.

Story/Screenplay: Strong.

Acting: Mads was great, so were Dancy and Anderson. Caroline Dhavernas and Demore Barnes were fine too.

Music: Awesome.

Overall a nice action packed episode with some good cinematography and sound and an unfinished dinner. Dr. Lector won't like that, will he!?
