TIME-LAPSE ESTABLISHING.

INT. WILL GRAHAM’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - NIGHT 1 2 2

The PACK OF DOGS are gathered around the heat lamp in the fireplace. CAMERA FINDS WILL GRAHAM sleeping fitfully in his bed, drenched with sweat. His fevered brow beads and runs.

MATCH CUT TO:

A GLASS OF WATER

Sweating as it distorts the flickering flame of a FIREPLACE.

CAMERA FINDS HANNIBAL.

HANNIBAL

Someone who already doubts their own identity can be more susceptible to manipulation.

We are --

INT. HANNIBAL’S HOME - DINING ROOM - NIGHT 1 3 3

Hannibal ENTERS carrying KUDAL, an Indian curry of sheep intestines, lovingly displayed in a sculpted banana leaf.

HANNIBAL

Dr. Gideon is a psychopath.

Psychopaths are narcissists. They rarely doubt who they are.

DR. CHILTON

Tried to appeal to his narcissism.

HANNIBAL

By convincing him he was the

Chesapeake Ripper.

Dr. Chilton realizes he’s gotten himself into trouble.

DR. CHILTON

If only I had been more curious about the common mind.

(CONTINUED)HANNIBAL

I have no interest in understanding sheep. Only eating them.

(re: platter)

Kudal. A South Indian curry. Made from sheep, of course. In a coconut-coriander-chili sauce.

Hannibal serves Dr. Chilton a morsel from the platter.

DR. CHILTON

Feels like a last supper.

HANNIBAL

You’re not the only psychiatrist a patient has accused of making them kill. Poke around a psychopath’s mind, bound to get poked back.

DR. CHILTON

What would you do in my position?

HANNIBAL

Deny everything.

DR. CHILTON

I thought psychic driving would have been more effective in breaking down his personality.

HANNIBAL

Psychic driving fails because its methods are too obvious.

DR. CHILTON

Sensory deprivation. Psychic disorientation. Curare.

HANNIBAL

You were trying too hard, Fredrick.

If force is used, the subject will only surrender temporarily.

Hannibal and Dr. Chilton enjoy the beautifully prepared meal.

HANNIBAL

Once a patient is exposed to the method of the manipulation, it becomes much less effective.
