‘Hannibal’ season 3, episode 9 video: Rutina Wesley on playing Reba, connection to Dolarhyde

HannibalSince NBC is now depriving us of new “Hannibal” episodes on Thursday night, we do still want to do our part in giving you a few new teases of what to expect.

For some reason, the network is now ironically airing some video features in their “Post-Mortem” series before the episodes are even airing, but we don’t quite mind in this case given that there is nothing in this clip that is necessarily a spoiler other than learning a few new things about the character. Rutina Wesley of “True Blood” fame takes front and center here, and we have a worthy introduction to the Reba McClane character. She is a woman who forges a connection to Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage), and treats him in a very unconditional way. Meanwhile, he benefits from her presence because she makes him feel better about who she is, and does not make her think for a second that she is different because she is blind.

The biggest thing the video does give away is that the Tooth Fairy actually speaks on Saturday’s episode, but that is something that you probably assumed would come about soon enough. The guy cannot stay silent forever, right?

The large mystery still looming for this installment is how Will Graham is going to use Hannibal Lecter in order to piece together a profile on Dolarhyde, and if he can evade the darkness that will be coming for him. Will is now a man with so much more to lose than ever before, given that he has a family who cares for him to go along with those famous dogs.
