Ok so here we see Will Graham succinctly telling Peter Bernadone that he doesn’t hate Hannibal right? He’s basically elucidating the fact that he is entirely conflicted by what he feels. If he had a definitive feeling towards Hannibal, it would be easier to kill him. Whether that’s by confronting love or hate; it would allow him to make a concrete decision.
In the following episode, the first scene we see is a dream sequence involving Hannibal tied to a tree. At first, we see Will facing Hannibal talking about the proceeding events being an answer to his problem. But it’s only when Hannibal begins talking about loving Will that we see Will advance on Hannibal and put the events in motion that result in Hannibal’s death. When Will wakes up, he is visible tense, like he has just been shocked into rigidity. That is because he has subconsciously confronted his own feelings for Hannibal. These feelings, summed up by Hannibal in the dream, aren’t rooted in hate at all but were definitive enough for Will to act.
This is something that is repeated in the Wrath of the Lamb, only Will confronts his love for Hannibal on a conscious level. He is therefore able to take them over the cliff because he has confronted a definitive feeling; one that propels him to take his own life as well as Hannibal’s.
Well. He attempts to. Bc we all know they ain’t dead.
WE WILL CATCH UP TO THEM SOON.
