"Hannibal" TV series NBC Episode 3 "Potage" review

And what a tasty pot of soup it was, tonight.
Are the script writers trying to equate deer hunters with serial killers? This will piss off the N.R.A..
Why did all the female characters (Abigail, Marissa from next door, her mum, Dr Bloom) look the same (long brown hair, wearing teal colours). We know Hobbs had a thing for this look. But why teal - did he shoot ducks too?
Virginal Abigail (Kacey Rohl) looks like Lindsay Lohan (circa "Mean Girls", not now).
Loved the scene in the lecture theatre when Graham and Lecter share looks as Will talks about the copycat's phone call to Hobbs. Does he know? We know Abigail does.
Blogger Freddie Lounds (played by Phillip Seymour Hoffman in "Red Dragon", now played by Lara Jean Chorostecki) seems to breeze into any situation. Can't she be arrested for obstruction of justice? The F.B.I. have been incredibly lenient with the pest. Slagging off unstableWill in earshot of everyone. Hope she is main course soon.
Not much nifty profiler magic by Will this week - I like when he is transported, trance-like, reconstructing the murders.
Shared madness seems to be a recurring theme in this series. Poor Abigail, getting into a pact with Lecter. This won't end well. Hope she has another hunting knife handy.
