TV Review - Hannibal Season 2, Episode 8 'Su-zakana'
Doctor Lecter picks up Will's therapy sessions where they left off and also gains a new (and somewhat familiar to Hannibal fans) patient along the way. Meanwhile on the outskirts of Baltimore someone is 'horsing around' with a dead body. Equine enthusiasts look away now...
So with last week's relatively serial killer free episode (excluding Hannibal) over and done with, this week we have a new potential inmate for the Baltimore Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Seriously that place is going to be needing an expansion pretty soon, oh yes and a new administrator come to think of it.
After the body of a dead woman is found sewn inside the uterus of a horse with a live starling (ho ho, a starling, we see what you did there Bryan Fuller) zipped up inside her ribcage to mimic a heartbeat, Will and Jack end up meeting a brain-damaged former stable-hand Peter who knows more about the murder than he is letting on.
|Well I'm not an obstetrician, but I'm pretty sure this isn't where babies come from|
|Thank you, Dr Lecter, but I'm well aware that I left my clothes hanger in my jacket.|
|That moment when you emerge from being sewn inside a dead horse's uterus by a crazy person |
to find an even crazier one standing behind you...
|Don't shoot him, he's covered in horse goo, and I just had this suit cleaned...|
As perfectly tailored as one of Hannibal's suits.
