TV Review - Hannibal Season 2, Episode 11 'Ko No Mono'
Zoe Butcher peeks out from behind the sofa to recap the second season of Hannibal's eleventh course 'Ko No Mono'...
Alana becomes increasingly concerned that Hannibal has encouraged Will to kill Freddie Lounds. Meanwhile chez Verger, Hannibal's manipulations are taking effect. This should be fun. Well, maybe fun isn't the right word...
The now traditional 'pre-credits fucked up Will nightmare' sequence features Will being reborn via a moose uterus while the creepy Hannibal wendigo watches from the sidelines. Personally I'm looking forward to the pre-credits sequence where Will finds himself stark bollock naked in front of his work colleagues. As are the rest of the female population.
|Will: Who are we having for dinner tonight?|
Hannibal: It's just us Will.
Will: You know perfectly well that's not what I meant.
|Don't get all snotty with me, woman. You're the one boffing a cannibal.|
After dental records 'confirm' that the body is indeed Freddie, Will and Alana get to snipe at each other during her funeral. Honestly, if there's a character in the running to beat Crawford to the 'most fucking useless at their supposed job' trophy, it's going to be Alana. Grow a brain woman, seriously. This character started off as an intelligent and talented psychologist but her hookup with Hannibal this season has reduced her IQ to some sort of citrus fruit. Strong female characters - where are you?
|Darling, if I was a cannibalistic serial killer I'd tell you, I promise.|
|Mason Verger: So crazy, even Hannibal Lecter gets a migraine from talking to him|
|Look, I murder people and eat them and even I'M creeped the fuck out by you.|
|You can't kill me yet, I've got plot armour!|
Another brilliant episode from the Hannibal team. The acting is superb on all counts with special mention this week going to Michael Pitt and Mads Mikkelsen. Only two episodes left this series and the tension is building as the noose is tightening around Hannibal's neck. Or is it....
