You know, there was a particular peculiarity to Freddie Lounds’ relationship with Abigail Hobbs. I don’t know if I would’ve called it ‘maternal’ but it certainly seemed 'big sister’-like in a sort of way and I think that’s pretty remarkable.
AU meme: Hannibal as a happy show (requested by anonymous)
In which Hannibal Lecter is an eccentric psychiatrist with culinary talent and a taste in lame daddy humour. Tends to become infatuated with everyone around him, be it his dorky therapist Bedelia Du Maurier, neurotic best friend Will Graham, or Alana Bloom, a beautiful woman with anger management issues. Together with Will Graham they adopt an outcast girl Abigail Hobbs and collect stray puppies. No food is people.
Kill - Hannibal Lecter (Copycat Killer) - Girl on the Stag Head
This piece is entirely for Will Graham, it allows Will to put the pieces together to find Garret Jacob Hobbs’ “Golden Ticket.” The violence on display here shows a complete lack of care for the well being of this woman. Showing how much Hobbs’ loved the girls he killed and therefore by extension the love for the Golden Ticket or his daughter. It is from this kill onwards that Will works out the Golden Ticket is the killers daughter.
Hannibal staged the kill in a field. Making Will feel “at home” as he is most at home around nature. Hannibal Lecter killing for himself would probably never stage a body in a field. Not his style. Shows how well he already knows Will though. Will feels most safe in the fields outside his house. (episode 4)
