did you notice how in both scene of Will looking into a shattered mirror the piece over his right eye fell off? foreshadowing for the RD attack, you think? it would fit in nicely with the s1 theme they created with the whole "see, see" thing.
I don’t have the episode in front of me so can’t quote precisely, but there was also that very upsetting line of Hannibal’s to Jack about how our faces are made up of nothing but our scars. (Was it a Hitler quote? I may be misremembering seeing as I watched this episode at 1am while being absolutely beside myself – but did Hannibal seriously quote Hitler there?) But anyway, that line, plus the broken mirror imagery, was very, very foreshadowy. I’m back to feeling convinced Will’s facial disfigurement is gonna be a thing.
In the RD arc, the show is dealing with issues of identity. Our face is what we present to the world, but does it reflect what’s inside of us? Is Will’s facade–his new life, his new self–an accurate reflection of who he is at heart? Clearly Will already has his doubts.
