We know from the Hannibal move that Verger had a history of pedophilia (he tells Clarice on her visit to his house that he used to work at a summer camp funded by his fathers money, and that there were a bunch of cast off little children who would do “anything” for a candy bar, and that he took advantage of that). We also know from the book (although I’m unable to find the exact dialogue) that, according to Margot, when they were children he raped her, presumably many times. It seems that Verger finds pleasure in watching or causing children to suffer, and since becoming disfigured and bedridden (or at least wheelchair bound) the only way he can interact with the suffering of children is by drinking their tears. The disgusting fuck. Anyone who thinks Hannibal Lecter is the villain (at least of the canon book/movie series, disregarding NBC Hannibal) hasn’t been paying attention. But I digress.
that was Ralph Mandy’s body, the other man who tried to date her.
because verger is a scary guy/because he’s coming back for revenge and he thinks that should scare hannibal. mostly because verger underestimates hannibal.
The two of us actually have had very similar thoughts on it really throughout the whole process. When it was first announced we were very skeptical, but as more info came out we got more excited about seeing it. For the first few episodes we were still pretty engaged despite the fact that it diverges from the canon in pretty serious ways. As the series went on, however, it became harder and harder for either of us to stay invested. At this point, neither of us feels that it does the canon justice at all. The characterization of Will and Hannibal and especially the way their relationship is treated in the show is not at all true to Harris’s work.
Personally, I think the show is very interesting and intelligent and I would love to appreciate it as a work separate from the canon, but I think right now I’m too frustrated with the liberties it’s taken to be able to enjoy it at all.
like rich as balls. the guy owns acres and acres of land and has several mercenaries in his employ and is also paying off multiple politicians and administrators in the FBI. we don’t get a specific number for his net worth or anything but it’s safe to say that he’s really, really rich.
Well, Paul was kind of a douchehole who made little effort to conceal the fact that he was ruining Clarice’s career largely because she refused to sleep with him, so given that Hannibal usually keeps an eye on her it’s not a stretch to imagine that he would know about it.
He most likely picked the lock. As far as I know he didn’t steal anything, he simply found the address for Krendler’s lake house.
Hm. That would be interesting, wouldn’t it. But given that Hannibal is set seven years after Silence of the Lambs, I doubt it.
Yes. He killed both the attendant and the driver and then drive the ambulance himself.
I feel like, at that point, there would only be so much that doctors could do. His face was pretty well gone.
There’s also the idea that he might have wanted Hannibal to see his face before he died.
Are you in search of Lecter lols? Then we're probably Hannibros.
