Hannibal, “And The Woman Clothed With the Sun” Photo Recap

Hello my dear Fannibals.

“And The Woman Clothed With the Sun” begins with Hannibal totally recognizing Will by his smell.


I’m sorry but this is all that I saw.


What even are their scenes together? Too much, that’s what they are. Hannibal asks why Will doesn’t call him by his first name.


Aww he missed you so much Will, why you gotta be so mean?

Will: Because he tried to eat my-

I know, I know. You’re gonna have to get over that sometime. Every relationship has problems, Will. Jealousy, lies, cheating, good ole brain eating, the usual. But no, Will says he’s more comfortable the less personal they are. Ouch.


Of course, after his visible initial heartbreak, Hannibal sniffs him some more. 76767 7

Will is probably used to his creepy smelling powers but Hannibal picks up on more stuff about Will’s new life.

Yup, he smells a child. And immediately reminds Will he gave him a child, if he recalls. (Is this fanfiction? It’s fabulous.) 10141516tumblr_nslpzyjMhD1s6scqao4_54011112hjjhjh

This whole scene is so emotionally charged and great to watch with their amazing acting.

“You just came here to look at me. Came here to get the old scent again. Why don’t you smell yourself?”

Wow, Hannibal. He sees right through Will. Will is deeply offended.


Then Hanni asks to see the file and reminds Will they’re family.

Then we see flashbacks with him and Abigail.


Flashback Hannibal is emotional about hurting Abigail, probably because she’s one of the Top 5 Mischa substitutes.

And poor Abigail does a great job at playing by Hannibal’s rules to survive. Then he asks if she could accept him like she accepted her father. dssdfdfdffd

She’s not sure if that’s smart but Hannibal’s like:


He says he needs to collect some flesh.


She asks (hopes) if he means a finger.


He says he can’t bear to take her fingers. “Not even one, they’re so lovely.” (This weirdo, honestly.) avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h33m59s808

Then they spray Abigail’s blood everywhere.


Back at present day Alana and Will talk a little bit and she tries to understand if he’s okay with seeing Hannibal again.


I can just hear Will saying these to himself.


Okay, the last thing he needs is more therapy.

(Yes, I’ve started to react to my own recaps instead of what actually happens on the show)

Then he asks Alana if she’s still with Margot.


#RecappersAgainstBisexualErasure (I saw an opportunity and took it)

Alana subtly warns Will to keep his distance from Hannibal the Cannibal aka his ex.


Will says he’s not letting Hannibal in but it sounds like: avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h37m55s466avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h38m01s999avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h38m06s437  avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h38m10s397avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h38m07s914avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h38m11s492dr

Later of course, Will’s facial expressions when he’s around Hannibal give away his true feelings. avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h38m35s678  avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h38m41s930avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h38m36s793avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h38m43s640

They walk in the crimes scenes inside their shared mind places.

I won’t even comment on this. Later our favorite journalist shows up.

In the meantime Alana threatens Hannibal.


She tells him, if he’s up to something, he’ll suffer the consequences. No books, drawings or even a toilet.

It made me cringe to hear Alana tell him these things but at the same time, this is the only thing she knows she can do to protect herself and Will, right? Then again, we know she can’t really control Hannibal’s actions so it’s just making me worry about her fate.


In the flashback Hannibal’s training Abigail.


I’m not even questioning this scene right now.

It just disturbed me to see this guy in a suit for some reason. All green faced and everything.

Also dead. Which is the main point.


Yeah, Hannibal, why for the love of God?


Abigail stabs her dad’s very dead neck so there’s disgusting stuff and I’m not capping it because nooope. avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h48m19s617avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h48m26s606

*Sigh* Then there is this guy. Because obviously, a sophisticated Cannibal named Hannibal isn’t enough, so we had to have a dude who thinks he’s a dragon and he’s probably on TIME’s “The 100 Creepiest Creeps to Ever Creep” list. avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h53m45s007

Honestly I’m not too interested in his storyline, at least not enough to watch him be a creep in slow motion. So I kinda fast forward his silent transformation scenes because they seriously get frustrating for me.

Back with our guys, Price and Zeller are arguing about the family’s dead cat because Price feels more compassion for it than their children. avlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h55m35s067dfdwsdreavlcsnap-2015-08-01-19h55m50s215ıod

No dog is orphaned in Will Graham’s world. He later runs into Freddie Lounds who annoys him as usual.


Freddie’s lines were gold in this episode. “I covered your junk with a black box. A big black box. You’re welcome.” I want to cry.

Also Will’s face when he says “You called us ‘Murder Husbands'”


“You did run off to Europe together.”

And guess who was caressing Will’s photos and licking his fingers. Literally. avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h01m10s971 - Kopyaavlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h01m24s553 - Kopya

Ugh, he gives me stomach cramps.

Thankfully a character I actually like, Reba shows up and I want to hug her and tell her to run, run fast. avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h01m52s797 - Kopyaavlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h01m56s057 - Kopyaavlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h02m02s337 - Kopyaavlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h02m10s171 - Kopya

That’s it. That’s the character.

Later he’s like:

avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h03m20s900 - Kopyaavlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h11m33s767 - Kopya

They bond and Reba tells him she likes that he shows her no sympathy.

When she wants to touch his face Francis reacts like this: avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h14m08s279 - Kopya

Then Will talks to Molly on the phone, who I think is adorable beyond words. avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h14m50s250 - Kopyaavlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h14m55s766 - Kopya erer - Kopyaavlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h15m05s046 - Kopya

They seem to have a warm, supportive, wonderful relationship. And I really liked how this scene was shot. h56r

Also Will actually laughs?? Like he’s happy when he talks to her?? She makes him smile?? avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h15m17s079

But later in his dreams:


He sees that he’s killed Molly and he’s growling like an animal while covered in blood. drth

Jack visits Hanni. They talk about Will and how it will affect him to try to catch this murderer. avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h18m57s903avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h19m00s118

It really made me feel uneasy when Hannibal asked, “How much room does Will have?” regarding his scars.

In another flashback we see Will call Hannibal to warn him. Hannibal isn’t exactly happy and instead of leaving, he decides to stay and give everybody hell. Including Abigail.

avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h19m35s326  avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h20m03s464

Poor Abigail. You deserved better.

Later we see Francis has called Hannibal to thank him for his attention and tell him about his true identity. avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h20m58s405 avlcsnap-2015-08-01-20h21m31s425

Hannibal, don’t.

This is like watching a beautiful disaster. It stresses me out so much but I don’t want to stop watching. Let’s wait and see how things will turn out with the cannibal & the dragon.

  1. The only thing I can think about is #SaveAlanaBloom. Like really, my only hope is that they won`t have time to get to her death because the show is cancelled haha And also hannigram were insanely cute this episode *-* Great recap as usual 🙂

  2. Love love love your photo recap…don’t ever stop!!!!
    I’m so afraid for Molly and her son though…
    Now that Hannibal knows Will created his own family…
    He will sure try to destroy it…
    and he has the Red Dragon under his wing…
    Let’s hope the series finale is not Will losing all his family members…

  3. LMAO you made me laugh, you’re the Molly to my Will 😉

    I don’t support Hannigram but your recaps are so funny 😀

  4. I know there’s a lot of moments of Hannibal showing concern for Will’s well being *cough*tastybrains*cough* but nothing really hit me harder than when he tells Jack, Will’s boss and friend, the man who swore to protect Will from falling into the black pit of being a serial killer, that he sucks and doesn’t care about Will’s well-being. Jack replying with ‘what’s your excuse?’ is so idiotic-he really did just throw Will to the wolves the second he set foot on Will’s property in The Great Red Dragon.

    Also-you can’t get blood in your buttcrack if you don’t have one. trolololololololNBClolololollol

  5. Oh God I’m crying with laughter. Will quoting Wuthering Heights is perfect! I will happily wait forever for more brilliant Hannibal recaps from you if you ever decide to do more.

  6. I’m actually on Hannibal’s side, since the middle of season 2 through the entire season 3 and I adore Dark Will XD I love your recaps but I couldn’t disagree about Molly with you more.
    [Prepare yourself for a kind of long comment explaining my point of view and I would love to hear your response as my comment is intended for you with deep interest and non hatred 🙂 thanks :’3]

    I just didn’t care about her the whole time, like if the hole thing was just a fake, they (Will and her) escaped their past broken lives to try and compensate what was lost with the other, Will try to find some stability, and she tried to find somewhat of a father figure for her son. They didn’t loved each other, there was no passion in their eyes when they looked to one another, all I saw was comfort and yet I noticed sadness on both of them , mostly coming from Will as expected because he missed Hannibal, he knew he would never get similar feelings towards Molly, not really even close. And Molly is a smart person who takes smart decisions but choosing him was bad if she really didn’t know his past or what he had been through, she wouldn’t have let him go if she knew what Hannibal meant to him, what he had done to Will and how he had changed him…showed him who Will really was inside.
    Besides that, I’m glad you aren’t hating on Alana, though I despise her every time she insults Hannibal in anyway, I don’t blame her 🙂 the one I do blame is Chilton and Freddie, and yeah, I started to tolerate Freddie and even forgive her existence, but re-watching the first season of Hannibal didn’t do to her any good. Will why didn’t you kill her?!!
    Also I love Murder Family, and those flashbacks with Abigail are precious to me, as Abigail wasn’t as freaked as you show her, as she is indeed dark, as she said when he was hunting with his dad were the best times of her life, meaning not just regular hunting but the actual preying of those girls, and the fact that she said almost joyfully rather excited “Can I push the button?” with the blood tube thingy. She’s more mischievous than many people think, that’s why Hannibal chose her in the first place. Or at least that’s what I believe by heart.
    Nevertheless Bedelia seems more dark than everyone think she is, she’s scared, but she knows she was looking for trouble, she knew that and kept on going, when she was realizing her life might might be in danger it was too late.
    I adore her, she’s great, but I think I will miss her as she doesn’t seem to try and persuade Hannibal not to eat her or try to kill her, really she just keeps insulting Hannibal’s baes and being all sassy and daring, I hope they can make a season 4 and bring her back to make her shine a little longer! XD

    Those were my thoughts(sorry if they were long ones). I would hope for you to read and answer but idk how many comments you must get by the week so I won’t bother if you don’t do so.
    love- Me.
