Life within death.
Physalis alkekengi, or the Chinese/Japanese Lantern, blooms during Winter and dries during Spring. Once it is dried, the bright red fruit is seen. The outer cover is a thin mesh that held the flower petals, seen in golden brown colour.
This is beyond beautiful
Does anyone else see a pattern with these three questions sitting in my drafts right now? Because I do.
First off, these are all fabulous questions, my very favorite kinds of questions to get, and I’m going to take time to answer each one of them in depth, although I can almost guarantee that all three of them won’t be done before the next episode airs: I have three long days of work in front of me, and these kinds of questions take a lot of time because they’re asking me to discuss arcs that occur over the course of half the season, or what amounts to a mini-season of television, anyway.
The one about Will is less direct about it, but the parenthetical comment tends to imply the same basic questions as the other two: what has been going on with this character’s characterization this year? Why has he or she felt so distant? There’s been some ongoing discussion in the fandom already as regards Will and Alana especially, but I’m not surprised to see it about Hannibal at this point also.
In addition to the question about why these characters are all feeling so distant, I want to discuss whether this is indicative of a flaw in the storytelling.
dr-lecter-fannibal-for-life asked: Of course I think Chilton lives. Before Season 2 started we were told that there was a death in episode 5 and a sex scene in episode 10. Was Katz a canon character yes but you know what She didn't do anything in Red Dragon that Price or Zeller couldn't do without causing a scene. For Chilton to die here and now We'd need to introduce a new Chilton-like character for Season 4 and Season 5. It would ring false, He is too beautiful to die here, this will only make him bitter
He IS too beautiful to die and the futility of bitterness would be the only real result of his death- YES this makes so much emotional sense!

AVC: Chilton, correct me if I’m wrong, is the first character from the literature that you’ve killed who’s still alive in later books. Do you feel that shakes things up, or do you worry about not having that character to play later?
BF: [Frank] Serpico survived a bullet to the face.
The tragedy is not to die, but to be wasted.
The tables are turning. PREVIEW: Su-zakana
What I love about episode seven and Raúl’s performance is that he’s comic relief. And Raúl is aware that coming into this world, [his] purpose is comic relief. How he navigated that and the scene where he’s saying, “I’ve got a partially eaten man in my guest room and corpses on the property, and you threw up an ear,” is sort of embracing the absurdity of the situation and winking at the audience and saying, “We know. It’s over the top. We’re having fun. Come with us.” (x)
