Uh, that needs fewer spoiler tagging. Spoilering the entire example text is bad.

I'm having second thoughts about my Five-Man Band. Maybe it should be: The Hero: Will Graham The Lancer: Hannibal lecter The Smart Guy: Jimmy Price, Brian Zeller and Beverly Katz The Big Guy: Jack Crawford The Chick: Alana Bloom Maybe a better question is should there be any at all?

Will doesn't really seen to fit the The Hero trope, even though he's the main character. In fact, he seems like more of the The Big Guy, since he's always on the field and has come to physical confrontation with the killers. Jack is without a doubt The Leader of the group. But I agree that the Science Team are the The Smart Guy since they do the analyzing, and Alana is The Chick. Hannibal would be both The Lancer and The Token Evil Teammate.

Yeah. Good point. I'll add it to the main page.

Hallucinations - "we see him lecturing to his class until Alana comes in and asks if he's rehearsing"

I was under the impression that this was more of Will's 'lost time' - he was giving a class, but he 'blinked' and found himself several hours later, possibly even rehearsing, and no one thought anything of it.

EDIT: thoughts for Buffet Froid...

OOC Is Serious Business: Compare Jack's reaction to snarky Will in Coquilles...
Will: You're the head of the behavioural science unit, Jack. Why don't you come up with your own answers if you don't like mine?
...to Buffet Froid
Jack: I just want to be careful with you. We don't want to break you here. Is that what's happening? Have I broken you?
Will: Do you have anyone that does this better unbroken than I do broken?
Jack: *quietly* Fear makes you rude, Will.
He seems genuinely concerned and doesn't respond with his usual scene chewing.

I'm not sure if it count as 'ironic,' but Will's states that he has, "a habit of collecting strays," echoes Alana in an earlier episode with regards to his relationship with Abigail Hobbs. Perhaps a Call Back?

Finally, awkward heart-warming moment? When Jack hypothesises that the FBI job gives Will some 'stability' in life...
Will: Stability requires strong foundations, Jack. My moorings are built on sand-
Jack: I am not sand! I am bedrock! When you doubt yourself, you don't have to doubt me too.
It's kind of silly, but Will is definitely grateful to have a supportive boss. Jack was essentially finding an odd way to wrangle Will's metaphor into an, "I believe in you!" speech.

Could the Character sheet be rearranged a bit? We could have more specific folders to keep up with the characters:

- Main character (Will, Hannibal, Jack, Alana) - FBI (Katz, Price, Zeller, Miriam) - Criminals (Hobbs, Gideon, the murderers we're about to get) - Others (Abigail, Freddie, Bella, Chilton, Du Maurier)

Or alternatively

- FBI (Will, Jack, Katz, Price, Zeller, Miriam) - Criminals (Hannibal, Hobbs, Gideon) - Psychologist (Alana, Chilton, Du Maurier) - Others (Abigail, Freddie, Bella)

Just a suggestion; I thought this might be more pragtical, now when we're getting more and more characters. :)

Others = recurring? I'm quite in favor of your first proposed organization. :)

If nobody protests, I'll get to it next week...

Maia Maiden, no one protested, but why is it still the same? Is it okay if I go ahead and do it?
03:45:23 PM Jun 20th 2013
Argh, I simply forgot to do it! But thank you for seeing the trouble.

I think the folder "Killers" should be changed to "Notable killers" as not all of them are included. Kind of like the "Notable Unsubs" folder in the "Criminal Minds" Character sheet.

Possible addition to the Foregone Conclusion section - Hannibal is suggested to have taken various human parts and eaten them, as per the other adaptions, but we don't actually see him do anything that would definitively pin him as a murderer with the possible exception of warning a fellow killer that the FBI are onto him and a few unorthodox methods. There are definitely sinister overtones whenever he prepares or eats food, but nothing concrete. Until Episode 6, aptly called Entrée, where we see him murder someone in a flashback. The fact that the team were hunting the Chesapeake Ripper would set off alarm bells in the minds of the fans of the Hannibal stories.

How would you define lines that are lifted from later films? For example, in the Coquilles episode when Hannibal, after sniffing Graham, complains that his aftershave reminds him of those that are sold with a ship on the bottle? That line was used either in Manhunter or Silence of the Lambs, when Hannibal spoke to either Graham or Starling from his prison cell.

Why cut the Paparazzi trope? It fits Lounds quite well.

It wasn't really cut, it was just moved to the Character page.
