Things got personal in episode 11 of “Hannibal” Season 3. After their episode 10 confrontation at the Brooklyn Museum, Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage) set his sights on Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), paying a visit to Will’s house in a failed attempt to murder his family. On top of that, it was Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) who urged Dolarhyde to make Will his next target. Now it is Will’s turn to go on the offensive. How will it all go down in “The Number of the Beast is 666”?
According to the synopsis for the new episode, Will is planning to ambush the Great Red Dragon. With the help of Jack (Laurence Fishburne) and the FBI, Will hopes to lure Dolarhyde into a trap before he can kill again. However, some are questioning if Dolarhyde is the only dangerous killer they need to worry about.
The promo for the episode reveals that Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) believes Will has the makings of a murderer.
“I’ve interviewed enough killers to know one when I see one,” Lounds tells Jack. “I see it every time I look at Will Graham.”
Apparently, she is not alone. The synopsis reveals that Bedelia (Gillian Anderson) will try to warn Will that his empathy for Dolarhyde could be harmful to his psyche. Plus, in the promo when Will hypothesizes that someone with knowledge of Dolarhyde’s crimes and access to the investigation could be helping the killer, Hannibal quips, “Someone like you.”
In episode 11, Walter (Gabriel Browning Rodriguez) tells Will he should not catch Dolarhyde, he should kill him, and the end of the episode featured a cryptic speech from Dr. Lecter about transformation and change. Is Will transforming into someone capable of murder?
