    Summary

    To the outside observer, Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter seem to have nothing in common: one is a penniless migrant accused of murder, the other a wealthy doctor and a pillar of his community.

    In truth, Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter are just alike. They are killers who long to show their true face, but are held back by the same shared uncertainty: have they fallen in love with a mask, or the man hiding behind it?

    Summary

    Hannibal has to hide away from the world for a while, and does so by becomes a Priest in a Catholic church. Will is a very troubled, very beautiful young man, who comes to the church almost every day to pray. What he doesn't do, however, is confess his sins to Father Lecter, and Hannibal aches to know why.

    And then he turned his head to meet Hannibal's eyes with one of his. “I just want to be a decent, normal man.”

    The words shattered, fragile like a thin layer of solidified sugar, and Hannibal watched the man close his eyes and lower his bible, as he pressed his back against the back rest of the chair. A wounded bird.

     

    Hannibal enjoyed crushing those wounded birds. This time, however, the notion alone was enough to make him ache.

     

     “Normality is never feared,” he said, as he turned himself towards the broken angel beside him. “...nor is it celebrated.”

    Summary

    Will scoffs, pouring boiling water into the French press.

     

    "Keep the dog," he mutters, "you need something to teach you what affection really looks like."

     

    "Keep... this dog?" It's the first thing that's ruffled his veil.

     

    “Yes, that one. I think she might have some Bernese in her, she's going to be attractive when she grows up. Patient too, protective, smart. Easy to train - well, as easy as any puppy is."

     

    He sees Hannibal look down at the furry body. "These are your terms."

     

    "You can reject them, if you like," Will says archly, "but just know that if you accept them and anything happens to that dog, or Alana, I will kill you myself."

    Summary

    “What’s the premise of the show, for our viewers who may only just be hearing about it?”

    “Well,” Freddie says, putting a hand on Chilton’s arm that looks friendly, but is certainly a warning; “There are so many reality shows nowadays where the drama and tension comes from the interaction of the contestants. But there is no real depth to it. We wanted to expand on the existing formula, really get outside the box and watch it collapse.”

    Amanda laughs, brow creasing. “Sounds ambitious.”

    “Oh, it is,” Chilton says, smiling wide and slick. “The idea is this; everyone has a secret. Something they would never confess to anyone else. Modern psychology would tell us that these secrets shape how people behave. We wanted to take a group of brilliant people who are all hiding something, and see if they can remove the smoke and mirrors and really get at the essence of each other.”

    “So, it’s like a murder mystery dinner meets reality TV.”
