I really like your comments - they're so well worded and clear. I think the reason that some fans are pushing for a romance and other fans aren't is because Heller and company are encouraging just that. They're deliberately creating ambiguity in Jane and Lisbon's relationship, and have been for a little while. The show certainly started with them being strictly platonic (and I agree, that was great and wonderfully refreshing), but I think they've deliberately made things ambiguous lately to give themselves the opening to go either way if they please. The fans that are rooting for a romance aren't making something out of nothing - there's enough to make one wonder. I don't think it's fair to assume that the fans who want romance for the two of them just want to see them lay each other (I certainly don't). I think that given how much Jane and Lisbon love each other as friends, people just want to see them make each other happy. Is that possible? Remains to be seen. Likewise, the fans who are on the opposite end of the spectrum are also correct. They don't need to be romantic simply because they love each other as friends. And you're all right - Jane doesn't even quite know who he is, much less for knowing how to love Lisbon the way she deserves. I think there's room in the fandom for both theories. The ambiguity is what I'm liking most about this season, and I'm willing to go with wherever the writing takes us.

Normally I don't like spoilers, but I'm glad I saw this. It allows me to mentally prepare myself for all possible outcomes and for an end that will possibly disappoint me LOL

Hannibal Review: By Design

I seriously love your reviews. Freakin' brilliant. Also, Graham was already adorable with the messy hair, but when he walked into Lecter's office? Hello. Fuller's not kidding with the guillotine - that's three characters gone! Katz, Chilton and Gideon. The story is great, but I'm really going to miss Raul Esparza. I enjoyed his work on the show. I think Will and Hannibal have been exchanging the lead for quite some time. I think there was a point where Will was a bit ahead and Hannibal was truly frazzled, but Hannibal collected himself and overtook will with the Miriam Lass/Chilton gambit. I'm looking forward to seeing what Will's plans are now.

Hannibal Review: By Design

It's an adaptation, not a reconstruction. Beverly Katz is also a character alive and well in the novel Red Dragon, but has been killed off in this series which precedes the novel. It's not uncommon with adaptations of novels to small or big screen.

Jane didn't explain, but the answer is she has daddy issues - that clued Jane in on how far she would go to hold on to the father-figure-lover she was having an affair with.

LONGNECKS!! That was the word I couldn't make out. Thanks so much! You're absolutely right...what Pam actually said was "Mike Ducockless" :-D

Hannibal Review: Dominance

They sort of had that talk...It was more Alana saying that and Will resigning himself to it.

Hannibal Review: Dominance

Izzard was amazing, but my favourite had to be Chilton. He walked an amazingly thin line between arrogance and intelligence in this episode, and did it so, so well. Also, he hilariously represented all of the Hannibal fandom - called out the puns AND the rhyme.

Hannibal Review: Dominance

That's a great point on the imagery. That's what Will does, right? Uses empathy to see the design of killers. He missed Hannibal before because he was too close and he was sick, but it's possible that now that he's seeing him clearly, he's able to see Hannibal's design. (sigh) So awesome.

Grimm Review: Coming Home

McHatton, between this and Hannibal, you're on fire this week. Awesome parallels drawn between the destinies of Adalind's daughter and Nick. That's what makes Team Grimm unique, no? They've all chosen paths that's unlike what they're expected to go. Monroe as the vegan Blutbad, Rosalee and Monroe getting married despite Wesen tradition and hanging out with a Grimm, Renard being a royal on the side of the resistance, Hank and Juliette being normal humans but fully immersed in the Grimm/Wesen world. However, it's this uniqueness that makes me think there's no single character that could allow that baby grow up in a normal enough environment. Monroe and Rosalee would be the closest, but they're far too immersed in Nick's world. I could be totally wrong on this, but the only way I see that baby being protected is by pulling an X-Files...the baby is given up to random strangers who are living a normal life. On a different note, since when is Adalind so sure that Renard's the daddy? She slept with both royals within a day or two. I think she's playing him. Also, I'm REALLY going to miss Meissner. Dude was awesome.
