I just died a bit
only a bit
I forgot to plug my earphones in and I played this. Needless to say I have scared many people in the library.
I DONT KNOW WHAT I EXPECTED BUT THIS WAS NOT EXPECTED
Just so everyone knows—since I’m seeing it speculated about—this is straight from the book, not something Bryan Fuller made up. Will wanted to save Dolarhyde. He was willing to risk dying to do that, once he believed Molly had gone.
Filtering this desire to save Dolarhyde from himself through the knowledge that Hannibal is unsavable is not a matter of Bryan Fuller trying to do some kind of Hannigram fanservice: it’s a natural extrapolation of part of why this might be important to Will given his and Hannibal’s past in this iteration of the story, and, not incidentally, might also be why Dolarhyde would be important to Hannibal. As they are the two main characters in a non-ensemble cast, this is the way everything in the story has to be told. Period.
People who think the relationship between Hannibal and Will, as it appears in the show, is an example of Bryan Fuller pandering to fans are forgetting that Bryan Fuller was one to decide that this is the story he would be telling, long before fans had any voice or involvement. If you don’t think every aspect of S1 was about Hannibal and Will in some way, you need to go back and rewatch it. And while you’re at it, take a look at Bryan’s and Hugh’s and Mads’s answers to questions last year at this time.
Season 2 had to get hyperfocused on Hannibal and Will at some point because that’s the way stories are told: the confrontation always comes down to the two main players on the board, with everyone else swept aside at that point. Others might be present and affecting the outcome, but for that period of climax, the story belongs to the mains, and it is theirs alone. The first half of the season showed us that Will had nothing to fight with but himself, the second half showed us him doing that—and whether they love each other or not, they are adversaries and have been so at least since the climax of S1 in the Hobbs’s kitchen, if not from the moment they first met.
Of course the show can’t and won’t stay hyperfocused on them forever—obviously—and so the story will broaden back up again and then narrow back down again, periodically, as fits the narrative.
And when it focuses in, it’s not a matter of fanservice. It’s the way the story has been constructed from day one.
While being interviewed, Brendon Urie was asked if he’s still in close contact with Ryan Ross and if there was a song dedicated to him on the new album. (x)
"yeah no I haven’t talked to them in a while"
"no, there’s no song dedicated to any of our old band members"
"that’s a funny rumour though I guess that’s interesting.."
