This is what I get for watching all 11 episodes that’re out of Hannibal in a 2 day period:
I had a dream that the reason Hannibal was insistent they not tell Will about his encephalitis was so that when it got really bad, he would be the one to operate on him (I think he did it in the dining room in a chair, parallel to the Hannibal movie?), surgically remove the right hemisphere of his brain, and eat it.
So he did it, and it was all kinda creepy because Will was, of course, out of it, slumped in the chair, and Hannibal was like… stroking his hair as he was doing it. Then afterward, he wrapped up the inflamed brain with brown paper and put it aside, and said something like ‘Let’s see how well you’ll be off now’ and carefully put back the left hemisphere of his brain.
And when Will came to – he had no idea what had happened because of all the hallucinations and stuff, he just realized he was in Hannibal’s dining room. Hannibal asked him how he felt, and he stood and was walking forward and he mentioned his head actually felt better. But then he got this weird expression, and noticed he was kinda dragging his right leg, and he started to panic and turned and was like ‘My right side went numb..’ and saw the blood and the ‘meat’ poking out of the paper.
The insert a weird segment of my dream where Will put the cops onto Hannibal – it wasn’t Lecter’s house, though, they did it at? – because they were trying to ID him, but Will wouldn’t say his name, just that, ‘Your killer’s in there, just – just trust me’ as they were about to raid the place.
Another fuzzy dream segment about how there was another man – hired ‘help’ – that was a complete idiot and that Hannibal obviously believed was an idiot as well. There was something with a miniature soldering iron and alcohol being used as a modified flame thrower – except when Will came in first, Hannibal refused to attack him (which was.. weirdly sweet?).
Eventually Hannibal got cornered and Will was freaking out, so he calmly explained that he had been lied to, that he was diagnosed with encephalitis, that he had to perform the surgery or he would’ve died. Will didn’t at first believe him, but he continued to tell him that the reason they did it was to protect him somehow? Because it was already so bad that it was inoperable? I’m.. not sure what his reasoning was – and to confirm it with the other doctor guy who did the MRI. And Will kinda fumbled, and lowered the gun he had pointed out because he WANTED to trust Hannibal, and started to kinda.. doubt his accusations, and said something like, “… If that’s true, then… I guess I owe you a thank you with my apology’.
And then they started walking out of the building (as the raid was still going on, LOL. Hannibal just cruised out out of there calmly next to Will and since he wasn’t identified and has always ‘been around’, no one noticed it being out of the ordinary), and Hannibal asked him if he still felt okay. And Will replied something similar to, ‘Yes, but it’d still be nice to have, I don’t know, my BRAIN back’.
… Yeah. Well. I’m sure this was more entertaining in my head. If nothing makes sense, it’s because it’s 2:15am, and I LITERALLY just woke up from that dream, had an ‘oh shit’ moment, and decided to write it down.
