** Lecter claimed he was calling his lawyer. As insane as he is, he's still entitled to privacy for this communication.



* SexierAlterEgo: Zig-Zagged. Dolarhyde believes the Red Dragon to be this but since it's all in his head it obviously doesn't change his harelip. However, in his efforts to "transform" he has taken up bodybuilding, which has made him very attractive to his female co-works in spite of his face. Also, his transformation is what gave him the confidence to approach Reba and find his first genuine human affection.

** To be fair [[spoiler:Dolarhyde was just playing her to make the investigation think he's dead and earn enough time to take his revenge on Will. He never seriously intended to shoot her in the face.]]

In 2013, Creator/BryanFuller premiered the TV series ''Film/{{Hannibal}}'', a major league AdaptationExpansion focusing on the relationship between Will Graham (Creator/HughDancy) and Lecter (Creator/MadsMikkelsen). The first two seasons draw from the book's flashbacks and Gothic tone to create an extended back story between the two characters before the latter was found out and imprisoned. The series doesn't actually get into the events of ''Red Dragon'' until the second half of Season 3, where Dolarhyde is played by Creator/RichardArmitage. Go to the show's page for more details.
