Open discussion: Hannibal 2x05 "Mukozuke"
dire ravenstag gunmettle, dire ravenstag, dire ravenstag 04
I'm making good time on "Takiawase"--it's just that "Hassun" ran (extra) late because of another project I had to do, so now this is also running late. At some point I'm going to get out from under the backlog, but today is not that day. However, some of y'all in the "Hassun" comments asked if we could have an open discussion thread for the episode currently airing, so: here we are. I'm going to have to be on Twitter to pitch in for the ratings and collect east and west coast tweets for the Storify, but LJ is definitely better for threaded conversations; I'll try to drop in between broadcasts. And if it turns out people are interested in a discussion post like this, we'll keep doing them. To state the obvious: there will be spoilers in the comments. Try to keep it to spoilers through this episode, though, in case people don't want to know about ~the future~ yet.

While we're here, we have two Aromaleigh colors this week:

I mean, all the colors will be there for a good long while, but these are the two newest. I haven't seen them in person yet, but they both have some color-shifting business going on--Lure is meant to be Abigail's multicolored sweater, and Murder Tie has to have some stealth red in it, of course--so it'll be an adventure trying to take pictures of them. Still working on the Tattler swatches--I've found a couple of lighter colors that blend well with it, so that it looks kind of like a sunset. But I'll get back to that after I'm done with "Takiawase."

By the way, here's the preview for tonight--and NBC Hannibal's Tumblr tags:

#Hannibal #NBC #Television #Previews #So last Friday was like the first JFC episode #This Friday is THE REAL GD DEAL #There's not even a part of the episode that we can call out to be ready for #IT'S JUST THE WHOLE THING

Buckle up.

Apparently there're going to be more flashing lights this episode, so anyone else with seizures: this is your warning.

Yeah that would be no good for them.. :D

on today's episode of "Very Clever Cannibal Puns"-


He did that all in ONE NIGHT?

Mmmmm....Tastes like Beverly...

How will she be served?

that;s a different take on kidney pie I haven't seen before. and I've read alot of recipes for odd cuts.

"Like soap to a baby's eyes"?

Yeah, I... didn't quite get where that was going.

Is Hannibal dining on Sashimi tonight?

It's a very dandy tie, indeed. When Hannibal is wearing the murder tie, it's time to hit the floor.

Because I suppose they couldn't say, "it's the motherfucking MURDER TIE" in their description.

Heh. We discussed it, though. :D

Bryan Fuller has referenced the Body Worlds exhibits when describing what was done to Beverly's body, and other folks have invoked Damien Hirst and Tarsem's THE CELL. Me, I thought of person-sized microscope slides. Appropriate, no?

Re: Bev's presentation

Hee, that too. What I love is that the Body Worlds exhibit was used in... Casino Royale.

Poor Hannibal. I don't think he liked getting a taste of his own medicine like that. I have to say I LOVE how all this ties in with the animus between Will and Hannibal in Red Dragon. Very clever, show.

I am kind of !!! about all the parallels they drew between events in this episode, but didn't even think about how much of a call forward that was.

Ok, I'm going to need the oddly specific knowledge that I'm sure somebody here can provide. Can you even saw a human body into pieces that way, frozen or otherwise? And how would you display cross-sections like that without them just falling apart? And I think the timeframe's meant to be that this was the next day, maybe the day after? Could you do that in a night and/or a night and a day?

I'm sure somebody here will admit to being able to answer these questions.

I don't know, but I'll be looking into it. (The attention to detail you have come to expect from Cleolinda Industries, etc)

Watching it now. Thought I'd probably handle it okay, then sobbed through pretty much the entire first half. ;_; Hold meeeee.

I'm still hesistant to watch it ... I'm not squeamish but damn I'm like not ready for it. But I'll be happy to do some holding, I feel like I might need a lot of that when I finally watch ...

Next week on Hannibal, everyone is very disappoint in Will.

Somewhere in the future, Jack Crawford will give someone permission to smack him upside the head.

Interestingly, I noticed that Hannibal looked really tired at breakfast with Jack which now makes sense as a conscious script note facilitated by le lighting and make-up departments.

All I noticed was his super adorable cable knit sweater. It was two thumbholes away from tempting me to put all that bothersome cannibal nonsense behind us.
