This was definitely one of the stranger episodes, strange in that it was off-putting to see Bailey in such a state. All of the characters on this show are really strong, and they’ve all overcome a lot over the years, but Bailey is one of those people who doesn’t show weakness. In this episode, she doesn’t speak to anyone.
Everyone thinks she’s mad at them for calling the CDC, but in fact, she’s just overwhelmed being back at work and terrified that the virus she had might come back. She feels so responsible for the deaths of her patients, and it’s difficult for her to understand how this could happen. Fortunately, Weber calls her husband and he helps her deal with what she’s going through.
Cristina has been watching Owen over the past few episodes as Owen gets closer to the kid whose parents were in that car accident. She continues to try to help the father wake up from his coma, but Owen has been trying to keep the kid’s spirits up, even after his mother died. This episode, she finally asks him the blunt question–does he still want children? And Owen finally comes through on this one–he tells her he wants HER, whatever that may hold.
Alex is trying to give Jo her space, but when he runs into her again, he realizes she’s in trouble. She’s been crying, and when she lifts her head, he can see the damage done to her face. She’s been beaten–I’ve seen worse, but not on this show. Alex’s reaction reminded me of James Caan in The Godfather–when he realizes Carlo’s been hitting his sister, biting his knuckles, wishing he could put a hole in the wall.
This was right at the end of the episode, so we don’t know exactly what Alex is going to do about it yet, but Karev isn’t a man afraid of getting his hands dirty. Derek and Mark and Burke and a lot of the other surgeons were always so worried about getting their hands damaged, afraid they could operate again, but Alex allows his emotions to run him sometimes, and if someone deserves to get punched in the face, he’s never been one to hesitate.
Anyway, it seems Jo’s ex, the baby doc, is the one who did this, and if that’s true, I’m a little surprised. A guy who’s so good with moms and delivering babies, and then he goes and does this?
When M (Moran) decides to fess up to some of his other “jobs”, he will only talk to Sherlock, so Holmes has to go down to the prison in person. This puts him on the trail of another contract killer that Moriarty liked to use, one partial to “accidental” deaths, and a man who was once contracted to kill Sherlock, before the job was canceled.
But, Sherlock doesn’t know that Moriarty is playing a game of his own, and he used Sherlock as a pawn to get Moran to try to kill himself in prison.
Milo tries to break up with Molly, but finds it difficult to do so in a way that still leaves him looking like a “good guy.” But, everything keeps getting in his way as he tries to solidify the break-up.
The first time through, he wasn’t clear that it was a break-up. The second time, she breaks her ankle at a bar. And then he waits 6-8 weeks for her to heal before trying again–making him look even worse, cowardly, for not doing it sooner, broken ankle or not.
Meanwhile, Neal has to fire a guy at work, and he’s not sure he can do it. With a little encouragement, and some weird phrasing, he manages to almost pull it off, but the guy quits before he gets a chance.
The last couple weeks have been a bit gaudy in terms of graphic violence and crime scenes, and this one was too, but it made up for it in giving us a little insight into the history of Hannibal, and one of the murders he committed linking him directly to Jack Crawford. Crawford continues coming to Hannibal, hoping he’ll share some news of his wife, who’s still trying to deal with her cancer diagnosis.
Crawford also is confronted by someone from his past, a trainee Miriam Lass (played by Anna Chlumsky), who was helping him search for the Chesapeake Ripper, i.e. Lector. She gets too close, going directly to Lector’s office, and finds a drawing of one of the murders. So, Lector does what any killer would do if they’re about to be found out–he kills her too.
But, they never found a body, and when another killer (Eddie Izzard), in an institution for two years, starts taking credit for the other murders, Lector has to come out and prove to Crawford that the real killer is still out there, taunting him with Miriam’s murder.
Another entertaining piece of this episode was the first look at the illustrious Dr. Chilton, the obnoxious and phony shrink from Silence of the Lambs who gets a crush on anything that moves. At this time, he’s young, bearded, and quite good-looking, while the guy from SOTL was old, overweight, and not good-looking at all. Polished, but not attractive.
The young Chilton is just as obnoxious, just as pompous, and just as full of himself as he is in later years, but I was very impressed as how well Raul Esparza captured Anthony Heald’s Chilton. The physical resemblance is nonexistent, but the personality and mannerisms are spot on.
A young Dr. Chilton: Casting dept, #WIN
I very much hope we get into the psychology of Lector, Graham, and even Crawford as the show moves forward rather than focusing on the dastardliness and ugliness of the murders they solve.
The psychology is why I loved Silence of the Lambs, and the writers have been inexplicably underutilizing it in this show, despite the fact that it’s supposed to be about profiling, not crime scenes and criminal pursuit. A little more Jung, a little less CSI.
