The rush through the great red dragon

Hannibal Season 3, Ep 8 The Great Red Dragon,. Francis Dolarhyde watching his handiwork (Click image for source)

One more episode of the season gone, thankfully with a new story line. I really can’t say enough how glad i am to see the back of Verger and the pigs. Talk about all too many images i wish i hadn’t seen and could forget…

But at least i stuck with it for consistency sake and it also allows to sift through the process, the weekly business of the show and actually pick out the changes inserted with the new story line.

The music is more diverse or slightly more complex than it has been recently where sole percussion was predominant. It makes for a slightly less constrictive sound universe which is good, particularly with the reduced dialogue. But it does keep us firmly in the same atmosphere. It’s got more colours but it doesn’t sound fresh or different as far as i’m concerned. But it is one of the aspects i like most, it appeals to my ears and i wouldn’t want anything else to replace it.

I am getting a bit tired of the greys through… It seems to always be late autumn and winter in this show, always twilight. In the first images i really felt like saying: ‘really just a bit more light, i can’t even see his face or tell his expressions really well’. I really think they went a shade too dark. Dolarhyde is supposed to be in a public environment, in daylight. I wouldn’t change the lighting at his house, but i think a bit of contrast between the two would have been beneficial. This way it just dragged the grey into my eyes and the uniformity of the colour pallete started bothering me. Of course not helped by the fact that we no longer have Hannibal’s colourful suits to break the monotony. He’s now stuck in a grey onesie, Dolarhyde wears, if anything 😉 variations of greys and kakis and nobody else really brings any colour into the place. With Hannibal out of the picture temporarily and Bedelia  (but also Margot) gone it was dark and grey. Or more like aged photography kind of faded to be fair or more true to the actual colour palette. The thing about it though is that the beauty of the image has always disturbed me given the content of the story… And it is only interesting for so long; too often, this season particularly, i have been bored with everything and looked at it almost as one looks at a design and decoration magazine. And Bedelia was such a splendid decoration 🙂 As was Margot to be fair and her fabulous clothes!

Sorry, i still don’t care a jot about Alana. I liked her more with longer hair and less conservative clothing. Other than giving Hannibal a knife to free himself i still don’t see the point of her in this series and that knife could have been brought along by anybody else. Including Hannibal’s long lost relative who i thought made for a much more compelling female character. Both her and Chilton seem to have fallen into the mundane and boring, maybe Hannibal free really did make them up their game before? The dialogue was certainly nothing to write home about and i just zoomed out and looked at the decoration in the room instead.

The double entendre jokes were a bit more icky than sexy this time, the last time i laughed i think is still with Bedelia and her oysters 🙂 The last bit of writing that i liked or thought finally clever again was actually in Digestivo where in a separation of sorts Will say to Hannibal he would no longer think of him, he would not consider where he was, he would simply banish him from his thoughts. Weird though it sounds that gave me satisfaction, as i felt i had a bit of Will from the beginnings back, who was trying to fight back and trying to extricate himself from the dark morass Hannibal had dragged him into. All the more poignant then when Jack came to find Hannibal and it turns out the latter didn’t flee but states he is right there, ready to be taken in and that they will always know where he is 🙂 In the spirit of the show i thought that was a clever response to Will’s declaration. And it did close the circle in a way as Will had been pursuing Hannibal all the way to Florence and now when he was ready to let go, Hannibal refuses to do so. Finally that bit of writing felt like it came back to the interesting dynamics in season 2 without the pretentious snorkly dialogue it had fallen into lately.

Anyway, i felt that was not a bad way to end that part of the season.

Where we pick up with the usuals is not that great. As already mentioned i don’t find the switch between Alana and Chilton interesting or effective, we’ll see what happens. I don’t understand how Hannibal would get to publish in professional journals while he has been declared insane and so escaped the death sentence or life sentence (thus sitting in this psychiatric institution). Too far fetched and so is the idea of Chilton’s book about a new killer.. not likely to happen during active investigations i would think.

Speaking of which, i don’t like Jack as much as i used to. However, this is not a massive surprise as, if they keep close to the novel in that respect, i am going to like him even less going forward. Having said that i can see why Will goes with Jack as there is a much more chemistry there with him than in his household. Unwanted, disturbing and uncomfortable, the connection is there, whereas i’m afraid the happy marriage story they spun around Will was totally unconvincing. There was more care between Will and his dogs than Will and his wife… I didn’t see in her reaction any concern about somebody you love and know will suffer. Even if it is the right thing to do, it felt almost like a neighbour was talking and not a wife. Looks like they just didn’t spend enough time on those scenes or managed to build any rapport. Maybe there will be more but this was very disappointing. In the book there is much more of a sense of struggle, of importance in his current life.

Will/Dancy is as good as ever and i was happy to see doubt about going back to what his head does, even if we know it is inevitable. At least it didn’t feel like the pull of a drug anymore. For my own i am sure temporary comfort, i am happy Will is not playing with the dark side for now. Not talking here about his reconstructions, but about how he came to justify and rationalise murder and instigate it even.

Generally, after a few episodes which had been increasingly hard on my stomach and my nerves this was light relief. Digestivo was much worse than the ending of season 2 and i was very close to dropping it as it turned very true horror and once again confirmed that when the series goes true to genre i just can’t stand it.

But ep.8. was a bit deceptively light, i suspect mainly because they had to go through a lot of restating all relationships given the time span. They still managed to ruin another dish for me and this time they took on hot chocolate. When i saw milk flowing i knew it was too good to be true and sure enough, soon the blood started dripping, ew. The irony of plastic spoons was not lost on me but i hate them for ruining melted chocolate for me 😦 It made me nearly vomit every time Chilton licked his spoon. At least i can ignore Alana to the point where i can almost blink out her complaint about drinking a piece of somebody in her beer… yuk! And there goes my hope of being free of any culinary tortures for 1 episode… At least there was no sausage in sight, thank G-d for small mercies! The reference to those in the last episode was not even funny.

And then we had all the ‘fun’ of Will’s reconstruction of Dolarhyde’s murder, including blood gushing all over the house, etc. (I didn’t much blink, which tells the sad story of how a gruesome series such as this dulls even the most acute instincts 😦  )

Accompanied once again by censorship of human form when it is non-violent and non-crime related.. siiiiighhhh. No, let me say that again SIIIIIIGH!!!! I still have to put down my thoughts about censorship and how it seems to work these days, including in this show where it is a bit on and off, probably according to the time the censors have to dedicate to an individual episode. I just don’t get it and i never will.

But, usual business aside i was eagerly anticipating the new content and the start of the new story line. Imagine my disappointment when it turned out they had actually given it all away in the trailer and in the few images of the episode made available publicly before the show was aired. Add to that the interview content and there was almost nothing left, bar a small scene. They built it up so much that i really thought the trailer would only be a tiny preview of what the episode would actually contain and not only this episode but the also next ones.

I understand that they are trying to keep the show alive, find it a new home, a new format etc, but i can’t help but feel frustrated when in their process of marketing they screw the viewing pleasure/interest for me. I almost felt like shouting ‘hey! i am still watching!’. The issue arises mostly because this is not a plot strong show, at least not this season. The show is for me almost 70% visuals, and this includes character interaction which is very visually driven and 30% dialogues, plot etc. With the Red Dragon story, the plot isn’t even an issue since once one has read the book there is little unknown about the ‘plot’ element. Since the musical universe is also sort of familiar, the strongest element of novelty are the images. Ok, it is partially my fault as well for watching the trailers, looking at the images, reading the interviews. Still, it remains unusual for so much of the actual scenes in the episode to be given away. It created false expectations for me as i was hoping to see more of how these things tied together but all we got in the end were those shreds.

I have no issue with the balance of split of plots, i never expected anything else and they made it plenty clear that the show would still mainly be about Hannibal & Will and the Red Dragon story line would just be integrated in the overall story. But really, if the time they spend developing that story line amounts to 10 min an episode as it was in this first one the total on offer will be far less than any of the feature films which have addressed it before, quite contrary to what has been discussed. Just sayin’…. I really hope there will be more in future episodes, especially of the back-story we were promised.

I was so pleasantly surprised by what i saw in the trailer and excited about it that i was really craving more.

However, based on what episode 8 showed i am not joining the pity party quite yet 🙂  Before you call me a cold-hearted b***h, hear me out 😉 A TV series has an obligation to tell a story, to draw us in, to capture our imagination. The series, the stuff on screen… NOT the interviews of cast and producers/directors, not the books and other material they are based upon. We should not be told what it is about and how to feel about it in interviews, we should actually feel it when we watch it.

Now, forget for a moment about the book and the back-story… because you haven’t seen anything of the back-story yet!

What have we seen? We’ve seen murders, of families no less, with horrible handiwork and strange obsessions (mirrors and body parts…). We know the killer’s name and how the press has called him. And we have met the killer.

We see him as an intense, physically very strong man with image issues. Image issues that seem to be concentrated more around his face and a perceived deformity (much greater than the actual visible one). We get a strong sense of obsession and isolation. He appears to be always alone, doesn’t interact with anyone. He’s extremely neat and buttoned up, tight and almost uncomfortable in a skin that feels too tight. It looks as if he is trying to contain very forcefully with order the chaos within. And there seems to be something within as we glimpse when we see him alone in his house, liberated from clothes and human constraints. There is a sense of achievement or striving for something that he idealises and a defeat as soon as he looks into the mirror and the image he sees tells him a different story of reality.

Of the previously un-seen images i liked the broken mirror aspect more, which – as we clearly see in his almost desperately frustrated eyes – still doesn’t manage to hide the faults he sees within himself.

I really liked some choices they made here, not sure if intentional or not. In the scene where we probably see the only vulnerable moment in this episode we watch him dressed in a very soft, open necked sweater and trying to pronounce sounds. It gives a much softer appearance than the buttoned up darker shirt and even the shorts he exercises in. Whereas in the other instances there is a sense of power and aggression there, it is lacking here. For me it was maybe the tiny glimpse that there is more weakness there than the acts we are told about and shown might indicate. But we are simultaneously shown how deep the aggression and the violence runs when, frustrated with his inability to speak as he wishes, he violently attacks himself. It’s startling and unsettling and you are suddenly reminded of who this person is, that he is everything but ‘normal’.

Of course the image is only enhanced by the tattoo and the strange teeth he buys and as we later find out also uses. But up until we see his internal struggle we could very well assume that it is just a crazy idea, some aspiration triggered externally. As we the viewers can ‘see’ nothing wrong with him at first glance, quite the contrary. It’s not until that moment that we understand he’s not just aspiring to become super-human in some fanatical delusion triggered by a painting, but trying to mend and change something he perceives as broken, damaged.

And while we clearly feel the sense of conflict, i would say at this stage it is more frightening than anything else. He’s obviously not achieving what he desires, in spite of tattoo and teeth; the killings are obviously not making him feel more complete and he seems to be getting more imbalanced and frustrated. Essentially i get the sense of somebody who is increasingly loosing control – not gaining some – which makes him very very dangerous. It’s clear that the mockery he sees in the papers will only escalate him.

He’s close to unhinged, not to be pitied, but to be feared.

I am not sure the scene with the film is not too early. As you may have guessed from the title it felt very rushed to me in this episode. He practically goes from the Times mag to a full body tattoo in the blink of an eye, teeth get thrown in, films get thrown in, broken mirrors, etc. It’s all a bit jumbled at times, but mostly a bit rushed. For background and empathy i think it needs to slow down some.

Unless i completely missed it, i don’t think we were told about the filming and we see him there, in home-cinema mode pretty much in the buff and we get a sense of even greater frustration, but i didn’t get a clear sense of what he was watching and certainly not about why he was unhappy with it.  I also find the discussion about this in interviews confusing. The book on one hand is pretty clear, Dolarhyde is not horrified by what he sees, he is frustrated and unsatisfied with his own performance, essentially it is not good enough, it is not majestic as he expected it to be. I am not sure where the series wanted to go with the scene. It certainly went from disturbed to disturbing as he entangled himself in the bits of film with his head almost transforming into a camera itself. Visually quite a stunning metaphor for what is going on inside him and we do end up wondering which was scarier or more nightmarish, the images on the film or the ones in his head. Or would he like them to have only happened in his head? Mr A seems to indicate in interviews that Dolarhyde is disturbed  by the images of himself he discovers and almost doesn’t recognise… I am not sure based on the moment this happened in the series that i am entirely convinced by that alternative idea…

While we are at the visuals i really like the environment they have created in the Dolarhyde household, or shall we call it cave? It’s filled with all kinds of clutter, feels certainly older than the rest of buildings we see from the inside and is certainly as un-glamorous as it gets, a nice contrast to the offices in the psychiatric hospital. Will’s house is successfully somewhere in the middle, spelling normality in subtle messages. (As i’ve already said, I swear it makes me feel sometimes i am watching a design show rather than a crime/horror series 😉 )

Maybe that is why the silences didn’t bother or surprise me as much. Much has been made of Dolarhyde not speaking but it didn’t feel strange at all. And really, bar Alana and Chilton who are utter chatterboxes the rest of the characters in the show are not great talkers. And both Will and H are almost more successful in communicating non-verbally. The dialogues lately have not been as exciting i felt or as clever, but in some cases fewer words were said to greater impact. But especially with Dancy and beyond the shadow of a doubt with Armitage one only needs the visuals and the background music  to set the scene and then let their faces and bodies do the talking. So the silences i didn’t think were that unusual. But they were appropriate and very effective. Which is why again it felt almost as if the director was trying to rush through them at times for fear we’d get bored. Not at all! As what was communicated in those scenes was infinitely more meaningful than in the rest.

I know the exercise scenes – if we can call them that- have been much discussed, but i’m happy to say they didn’t feel gratuitous. For my part i have to say i wish the censorship would not be at work and they would have been able to film them as described in the book. But they even had to stick the man in uncomfortably tight pants to keep anything from showing too overtly  – all tucked in, ouch! Shrugs… as my gran used to say: ‘the naughty thoughts are in the minds of the viewers, not in the story told’ on screen. The censors i bet have a pretty active imagination.

For my part i was more impressed with the details given by the technical crew about the filming of the scene at night, after the crimes had been committed. As the Germans say ‘Hut ab!’ for dedication and also the detail in that scene, i really really hope the fake blood was the sugar syrup type thing usually used for stage as at least that wouldn’t have tasted as awful. i think doing that in the freezing night took guts and determination. Hopefully he didn’t freeze the tips of his ears off 😉

So, the episode itself was a bit hit and miss for me and i am holding them to the promise of giving us much more not just this teaser. Well done Mr A for transforming into something so utterly different from yourself from the tips of your lashes to the tips of your toes. I almost feel like i need a massage after watching you wound so tightly…

Off to watch that film /camera scene again to try and make up my mind about what Fuller wanted to say there… And then to watch ep 9.. unspoiled! (no interviews, no trailers, no photos, no more of Mr A’s ramblings, nada, nothing!)

PS I had a good giggle at Hannibal having to use cheap plastic spoons to eat that disgusting goo… revenge is.. sweet? 😉 Except i would have gone much further and would have taken away his fancy charcoal pencil and given him crayola instead, in orange and yellow! and lined paper.. see how you get on with that Mr H 😀

  1. I’m an episode ahead of you, but I’ll keep that to myself. We feel the same about the other characters, and particularly all the talking. Alana ( and Abigail) have always been my least favorite characters. I’m begin to agree that I don’t like Jack as much, anymore. It’s true, they “rushed” through the beginning of the becoming, but I thought it was effective. I also agree, and in the next episode, also ( not a spoiler) that some scenes are just too darkly lit to be enjoyed.
    Finally, I agree that the show runners are giving us too much information ahead of time. Crikey – I can think for myself. I’m anxious to hear what you have to say about 9.

    • right behind you 🙂 i’ll need to see it properly on TV, long wait until Wed but much much better as an ep as a whole i would say. Still some eye rolling stuff in there and you were right, frustrating with the darkness when all you want to see is his face and the expression in his eyes.

  2. After the way series 2 ended I couldn’t make myself watch the first half of series 3 and I tried several times. But I find myself completely uninterested in any of the regulars except Will, and I found myself wondering today (watching episode 9) why I am still interested in *him*. I’ve never liked Alana, and the double entendre is so obvious it’s getting dreary.

    re: feared vs. pitied — I think he was more frightening in the movie projector scene than elsewhere … there was such a contrast in the physical training scene between the sheer physical power of what he was doing and his own perception of failure. I think I would have been more frightened by the scene in the snow if he hadn’t looked so tortured. In the end i had a huge (and counter-intuitive) impression of vulnerability.

    • i agree about that last scene, it didn’t really frighten me either. He didn’t look in any kind of way victorious or fulfilled or so, whatever a killer is supposed to look like. Not that i really want to see FD grinning with bloody teeth showing if you know what i mean 😉 For me it just spelled ‘insanity’ in big letters. However, because it was given away in the trailer i will never know how i would feel watching it if it hand’t been given away 😦 It’s not that i am enjoying the kicks and thrills that watching creates, quite the contrary, it is a deep and unsettling level of discomfort that i have to deal with, with various degrees of intensity. But unspoiled there is a natural reaction to what it shown whereas once i have seen it my brain filters it through logic and such and it can never be the same.
      As to Dancy/Will i know why i like him or i’m interested in him. DF story aside he is still the most human character on the show. He’s got a big flaw and his own problems and the fact that we know he can slip down the path of insanity himself makes it interesting to watch as you root for him not to. I detached emotionally from him in S2 because he did go down that path, but i was still interested in the outcome or the road into it and back. I am not buying into the ‘normality’ he is displaying at the moment. I think it is more what he wants to do, the ‘right thing’ if you will, rather than what he is tempted to do inside. And also, Dancy is for me a really good actor, i like the way he managed to show vulnerability with with an edge and i love his clear and subtle diction and enunciation. It’s a sympathetic and well played character. Though i didn’t like some of the choices they made for Will in ep9.

      • Interesting — my opinion of Dancy as an actor has gone down as I’ve watched my way through the series. I find him repetitive and obvious these days — no development at all in what he is doing. I think part of it is that he doesn’t benefit from the “binge watch.” It would have bothered me less if I’d have watched 1 episode a week for two whole seasons, I think. Then again, if I hadn’t watched these in binges, I’d never have watched them (shrugs).

  3. Du hast recht, die Ausleuchtung ist ein Graus! Mir brennen dermaßen die Augen von dem Versuch, etwas mehr zu erkennen. Außerdem zieht es meinen Blick magisch zu dieser unheilvollen Hasenscharte. Unfassbar, wie erschrecken unsexy dieser Mann ist. Wobei es eigentlich pervers wäre, ihn sexy zu finden (schon klar). Aus der Sicht des Fangirls fühlt sich das tatsächlich ungewöhnlich an. Zwischen FD und dem Heartthrob liegen Galaxien.
    Die Szene, in der er sich seine Filme ansieh, hat mich auch leicht irritiert. Das hatte ich auch aus dem Buch anders in Erinnerung.
    Es kommt mir übrigens ganz entgegen, dass der Dialoganteil eher sparsam ausfällt. Und da ich an der unappetitlichen Vorgeschichte nicht sonderlich interessiert bin, reicht mir das Verfolgen der Storyline um FD vollkommen aus
    🙂
    Habe mir die nächste Episode schon zu Gemüte geführt und bin gespannt, was du dazu zu sagen hast.

    • Ach immer diese Fruhaufsteherkommentatoren 😉 Ich konnte gestern nach gewissen Bildern schwer einschlafen und musste mich mit Lesen ablengen, ich sag nur ewwww! Das mit der Dunkelheit ist so ne Sache, ich bin dran gewohnt weil ich ja alle eps gesehen habe, aber in diesem Fall ist es bisschen lastig als Fan, weil man tatsachlich nicht gut sehen kann und das ist als Fan argerlich. Ich verstehe aber wieso das so ist, der hockt ja unterm Dach, wo er arbeitet verwenden sie auch wenig Licht usw. Troztdem argerlich und es ist auch objektiv gesehen zu unvariiert, bisschen mehr und bisschen weniger wurden es auch tun.
      Mann, das mit der Hasenscharte ist so absichtlich gefilmt 😀 Habe ich schon im ep8 gedacht 🙂 Clever gemacht weil es nicht mit Holzhammer gemacht wird, es wird nicht drauf gezoomt oder so, aber die Kamera kommt mehr auf der Seite , dei Seite des Gesichts wird mehr gezeigt, auch im Profil wird er meist von recht gezeigt 🙂 Die Beleuchtung ist auch meist von rechts oben, usw usf. Das ist Absicht, damit wir ihn bisschen so sehen wie er sich sieht, ich meine DF halt. Objektiv ware er noch immer attraktiv aber wir sollen eher an den Morder erinnert werden wenn wir ihn sehen und das ist sehr gut gemacht. Ich habe ja schon immer gedacht dass er kein ‘pretty boy ist’ 😉 Schon erstaunlich wie hart und seltsam eckig sein Gesicht erscheinen kann, nicht? Als Schauspieler eine Goldmiene weil er so anders ausehen kann, nicht nur korperlich, sondern auch im Gesicht 🙂 Es ist vor allem dieser wahsinnige Blick, im Sinne von echtem Wahnsinn. Ich hatte nie wirklich Angst dass ich ihn mogen wurde, dazu habe ich zuviel von der Show gesehen aber er ist noch viel furchterlicher als ich es mir vorgestellt habe. Ich wollte gestern gegen Ende nur weglaufen.
      Ich will ja HFans nicht irritieren, aber das cleverste Schreiben ist es nicht, wenn ich an Sachen denke die zB Moffat schreibt… naturlich kann man nicht vergleichen, aber es lasst immer einen in den Bauchnabelschauengeschmack hinterher.
      Ich werde trotz allem froh sein wenn ich mir das nicht mehr ansehen muss. Ich habe nichts gegen traurig gestimmt zu werden usw aber ich mag das Fruchten nicht und dieser konstante Ekel und Schauder, uff.

  4. I like what you said about the relationship between the show and the extra materials. With this kind of show, they’re always going to be compared against the book, so maybe they want to emphasize their own vision. I’ve seen that happening with Game of Thrones too.
    As to the dark cinematography: that is a pet peeve of mine. I want to be able to see. Though maybe in this one, it depends on whether the screen is full of bloody mayhem or naked Armitage.

    • I think they are trying to sell. But, hard as it may sound interviews and such stuff doesn’t sell to channels. There is a purpose as it may sell to audiences, get people watching and if the audience figures go up this helps sell the series on. But if people aren’t watching it doesn’t help. And there are always good reasons why people aren’t watching. The way to deal with it is not to say we have a great show, let’s do more marketing. The way to do it is look at the show and ask yourself the tough questions about why people are not watching. We’ve seen it in long series millions of time, you can revamp, improve design all you wish, you can make it look good, if you are not telling a good enough story people won’t watch. Always come back to that. And then you get a new writer in and bam, audience figures go up and people watch again.
      GoT has great plots, and there are many of them to keep people interested 😉 and the dialogues are usually really good. It works, even if i don’t like the level of violence.
      The dark cinematography, oh well, it is horror. I think they have good reasons for it and just yesterday i was objectively admiring the camera work and how well shot it is. In comparison to a blockbuster thing i saw in the cinema just a week ago and which drove me up the walls with the camera jumping here and there and showing me over the shoulder shots. Here it is seamlessly smooth and well done, it really is amazing. It is more of a fan problem in this case, as i always want to see his face really well 🙂 I think they could have tweaked it a bit, but if i am honest in the context of the show it makes sense the way they do it, and it keeps him from looking good and makes him look angular, which again works. I just need to rewind more often and watch again 😉 With brighter lights it would be much less scary and gloomy.

      • re: “ask yourself tough questions” — I think this is right. I think the tone from the Hannibal insiders is “they don’t understand what we’re doing and that means we should keep doing it in order to be artistic,” when it should be, “people don’t understand what we’re doing — how could we speak to them more effectively?”

  5. wow, was für eine Analyse, so detailliert, überall hingeschaut! Ja Du hast recht, das Licht entspricht der permanent düsteren Stimmung. Wir müssen aufpassen, dass wir danach nicht alle ganz trübsinnig sind. 🙂
    Und wir haben definitiv zuviel Hintergrundwissen. Ich bekomme Serie und Buch nicht mehr übereinander. Ich hätte das Buch nicht lesen sollen, der Dolly im Buch ist doch weit entfernt von Dolly in der Serie. Ich fand den zeitlichen Ablauf auch viel zu schnell. Etwas das sich über Jahre hinzieht, die Verwandlung in den Drachen, das Tatoo, die Zähne, die ja mal von der Oma stammten……. in der Serie könnte man meinen das passiert alles innerhalb ganz kurzer Zeit. Auch mit der Person von Dolly, der für mich als zurückgeblieben dargestellt wird (mit dem Finger lesen Grundschüler) passt nicht in das Bild, das man vorab durch das Buch schon hat, der Mann hat immerhin eine Ausbildung und einen Beruf! Das finde ich persönlich extrem confusing und gerade komme ich damit nicht wirklich klar. Mit der Umsetzung der Story, nicht mit der Rolle. Darin ist RA schon echt großartig !
