Forget the evisceration, the ‘Colombian necktie’, the blood packs, the fucking Christmas tree of organs…this is probably one of the better horror scenes we’ve seen on the show. And I think it’ll stand out as one of the better horror moments in genre television from our era. We were pulled through this quick-paced violence and gore last night, but then Hannibal asked Will to smile and this happened. Everything paused and came together in this quietly ghastly exchange. This is where the show’s true heart exists, in moments like this.
