Hannibal Review: Collapse

in his office because he wanted an excuse to bring up the fact that he was seeing a psychiatrist. He wanted Will to know about her because he wants to use her as an "alibi" or perhaps character witness would be a better thing to say.
Hannibal doesn't need or want therapy for himself. He only wants to use her. But why her? Why has Hannibal been seeing her and why would he not change psychiatrists after she retired? She said that she was attacked. Maybe Hannibal was responsible for the attack against her and he wants to monitor her just like he monitors Hobbs and likely will monitor the girl in the pressure chamber. I believe that he has been monitoring her for years and now sees a way to use her to protect himself from any fallout that may occur with something happening with Will.

Hannibal Review: Collapse

I would like to start out by saying that I haven't read the books, but I love the show.
I don't believe that Hannibal actually wants to be Will's friend. I think that is just something that he says to his psychiatrist in order to keep protecting himself. He wants to continue hiding his true self and saying that he wants to be Will's friend is sort of like creating an alibi for himself. If Jack questions Hannibal's intentions with Will then his psychiatrist can defend him by saying that Hannibal only wanted to be Will's friend. How will Jack know that Hannibal sees a psychiatrist? From Will of course! Do you remember when Will went to see Hannibal and Hannibal told him that he was having a glass of wine with his psychiatrist? Hannibal was in his psychiatrists office and NOT his own office! There should not be a reason for the glass of pink wine to be sitting in Hannibal's office when he was drinking the wine with his psychiatrist in HER office!!! I believe Hannibal lied about the wine
