After their fall, the little yellow house Hannibal brings them to is a charmed space. It’s easy to forget there, when Will is in the mood for forgetting.
In the Pennsylvanian woods, it’s easy as breathing to ignore the life he left behind. Simple to pretend they’re the last men on earth. Molly and Jack, the murder victims and the FBI seem farther away in the sea of tall, sweet grass—an echo from someone else’s dreams. That’s their life now: Will wants to forget, and Hannibal wants to let him.
But reality has a way of asserting itself. No one can ignore it forever.
- Part 1 of Rabbit Hair
Will and Hannibal's love has a habit of leaving human carnage in its wake. Molly Graham intends to be more than collateral damage. She rebuilds her life in the wake of destruction, and she does it alone. It's a simple fact of life—Will has space to fall apart; Molly doesn't.
But when Hannibal Lecter begins calling and offering therapy, she doesn't refuse and she doesn't call Jack Crawford. Maybe she just wants everyone to leave her alone. Maybe she’s afraid he’d come after Wally if she did.
Maybe she just wants to see what happens next.
