Recap / Hannibal S 03 E 10

Go To

Season 3, Episode 10:

...And the Woman Clothed in Sun

Hannibal Lecter speaks with the so-called "Tooth Fairy" and divines much of the killer's mind, even as he sets his own schemes in motion. Will Graham learns more about Bedelia Du Maurier, including how and why she killed one of her patients. And as Francis Dolarhyde's relationship with Reba McClane grows deeper, he takes desperate measures to control the Red Dragon.



  • Beneath the Mask: Bedelia reveals more of herself to Will.
  • The Bus Came Back: Bedelia's back.
  • Chance Meeting Between Antagonists: Dolarhyde visiting the Brooklyn Museum to see the original The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed in Sun painting? Straight out of the novel. Will Graham visiting the Museum after being tipped off to the painting's importance by Hannibal? Not so much.
  • Extreme Omnivore: When Dolarhyde is alone with the William Blake print, he tears it to pieces and eats it.
  • Fantasy Sequence: While talking to Hannibal on the phone, Dolarhyde imagines them sitting across from one another in Hannibal's office.
  • Foe Romance Subtext: Bedelia makes comments on different occasions on Will's relationship with Hannibal.
  • Once More, with Clarity!: In the flashbacks, it now appears that Neal Frank didn't attack Bedelia, but fell victim to an epileptic seizure that Hannibal had intentionally induced.

  • Shown Their Work: Even more than the source material. The object of Dolarhyde's obsession is correctly identified as William Blake's painting The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed in Sun, whereas the book misidentifies the painting as The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun.
