Will As Classic Hannibal

In the final frames of the season finale, Will was trapped behind bars as Hannibal gloatingly stood before him. The imagery was very familiar, as Hannibal was first introduced in Silence of the Lambs in a similar fashion. It’d be great to see the comparison stretched even further. As Hannibal takes Will’s role as Jack’s right hand man, Will should assume the role of knowing, devious, and brilliant prisoner who is often looked to for advice. After seeing a full season of Will falling to pieces, it would be a fantastic change of pace to see him take some power back from Hannibal. Even if he has to do it from behind bars.
