Robin, I didn't realise you were a girl. Thought you were a guy. lol. Good review, but I am unclear about something. Did Pazzi compare himself to Will Graham and say they have the same powers of observation? I missed that. I do disagree with you that this was a mediocre episode bar the last few minutes although you did highlight the best scenes of the night, both with Jack Crawford, and I agree. But the scene with Will being thrown off the train was a good one too. What about Hannibal playing that piano? Is that man talented or what? I liked the discussion scene with Hannibal and Pazzi when Hannibal was telling him about his family. I agree with you that Pazzi must be crazy to not realise that Hannibal knew he was on to him. He had returned too soon after his previous visit - seems like it was the same day. And how stupid was Pazzi to try and pick up the knife? Did he really think that Hannibal would not have missed the knife? Hannibal was prepared as he already had cloroform ready and waiting. He knew what he was going to do although he did tell Bedelia that he knew what Pazzi was going to do. The man is so smart. But the fight scene was awesome. It reminds me of the fight last season between the same two persons but this time Jack was as you say, wiping the floor with Hannibal. I cannot believe Hannibal walked away from that. Can't wait to see what happens next. Why are they cancelling this show? If it keeps up like this, this is what the people want. Please let us have it. Don't cancel.

LOL....yes, I am indeed a woman. Though I do realize that I look like a fifteen-year-old boy in my profile picture, wearing a Batman shirt and standing with a Batmobile ;-) In Primavera (episode 2 this season), when Pazzi first met Will, he was able to hold Will's attention when he mentioned that he has the same gift that Will does. They bonded over having that same ability to "know". Hannibal left the knife there on purpose. If there's one thing we know about Hannibal Lecter, he's not careless. Later, when he had Pazzi, he mentioned that he had called Verger's hotline to find out the score. Even if he didn't talk to Verger face to face, this is Hannibal we're talking about, and he probably figured that Verger would have wanted some sort of biological verification before dishing out a giant bounty. I think I found the episode mediocre because Will and Chiyo sucked the life out of it. Until Will got thrown off the train, I just was not interested. I actively dread Chiyo's screentime because she bores me to tears.

Before I read the review I'm going to say, best, best episode of this season 3. OMG! It was fantastic. First of all - Will - poor Will. I'm wondering if this is a dream with him or it's real. Then the disembowelment of Inspector Pazzi. Who saw that coming. I was hoping he wouldn't be killed, but alas, how can you turn your back on a man like Hannibal? Last but not least, that awesome fight between Hannibal and Jack. OMG. I think because it was shown in slow motion, that I kept getting anxious, thinking that Hannibal was going to get the better of Jack, and I was literally screaming, closing my eyes, opening them again and was frightened for Jack. Then I re-watched it. I realised that if it was shown in real time you would see that Jack was moving fast and not giving Hannibal time to recuperate and get up and fight, but in slow motion it was not looking like that and I kept thinking Jack's giving Hannibal too much time to rest to fight with him. It wasn't so. What a fight. What an episode. How can they cancel this show? Anyhow, on to read the review and other comments now.

"Then the disembowelment of Inspector Pazzi. Who saw that coming." I did. But then I had read the 3rd book in the series (Hannibal) which is the basis of most of the plot so far this season (aside from the Will, Jack, and Bedelia plot-lines). He was just as dumb/greedy in the book and also tried to go for the reward. And the set-up with Hannibal telling him about the death of his ancestor was right out of the novel.

Mr. Robot Season 1 Episode 2 Review: ones-and-zer0es.mpeg

Is anyone else getting a feeling that Mr. Robot might actually be Elliot. I'm smelling a dual personality thing here. His drugs abuse might actually be causing it.

There are some definite Fight Club vibes going on.

That flag was a symbol of rebellion in that show along with the fact that Hazzard County was somewhere in the South. It had nothing to do with slaves. I don't even remember seeing any black people in that show. I imagine if there ever were any, they were treated exactly the same as the white people.

This is totally ridiculous. That show is 35 years old, I loved it as a kid. Going to rename Daisy Dukes because of their relationship to a 35 year old TV show with a car that had the Confederate flag on it next?

Despite the missing guests, this by far was the best tv wedding of all time!! The vows were wonderful, especially Brennan's. I've wondered what she wrote, while buried. It's about time they got married, and was so well done & memorable; it was worth the wait!!

Providence would have been a better choice than a cartoon. Bones could have been a great choice for our nation's Capitol. Criminal Minds would have been a good choice for taking place all over the USA! I enjoyed reading this!

Sorry that John was killed. I liked him--and Goran Visnjic the actor who plays him is gorgeous. Don't like Mamie Gummer's Julie at all. This series is too out there for me.
