You know, I’m really trying to keep from turning these articles into a weekly installment of insane hyperbole about this show, but it’s just hard to come up with much else.
Bryan Fuller had said that the fourth episode of this season was where things really got cooking, and he wasn’t lying even a little bit. “Takiawase” makes a strong contender for best episode so far; it manages to be beautiful, terrifying, funny, depressing, and straight-up cool with plenty to spare. After a bit of a “moving pieces around” lull last week, the Hannibal storm has whipped up to full force. Let’s dive in.
(I’m also going to start being a little freer with spoilers in here, so I hope you’re caught up.)
