Episode Info: SCP37 – Hannibal S03E03 – “Two Sides of the Same Coin” The strangely-named third episode of Hannibal’s third season brought us another episode filled with surrealism and powerful thematic elements.  The themes that bookended Secondo were, once again, forgiveness and betrayal.  Hannibal seems to be dealing with whether or not he can let go of his feelings of betrayal and forgive Will Graham, and is using Dr. Du Maurier as his therapist to work through these emotions.  While Hannibal spends time in therapy, Will is deconstructing Hannibal’s memory palace in order to find a path that will lead to Hannibal.  Jack returned in this episode and was dealing with his feelings as well.  He met Inspector Pazzi and had a very therapeutic talk-it-out session regarding how he feels he betrayed Will and what Hannibal means to both Pazzi and himself.  Everyone seems to be looking inward in this episode, leaving us, the audience, uncertain as to whether or not they will find what they are seeking. Secondo Recap Hannibal & Du Maurier Secondo opens with Hannibal and Dr. Du Maurier having a sort of therapy session discussing Hannibal’s feelings about Will Graham – specifically, Hannibal’s confusion about whether or not to forgive Will for his betrayal.  Bedelia reminds Hannibal that forgiveness requires two people, much like falling in love does.  She also warns him that if he doesn’t resolve his feelings he will get caught. Later, Hannibal and Du Maurier host Professor Sogliato for dinner.  Hannibal serves Punch Romaine, the cocktail served to first class passengers on Titanic during their last meal.  Hannibal’s use of the ice pick to make the cocktail foreshadows they way he later jams said ice pick into Sogliato’s temple.  Bedelia later pulls the ice pick from Sogliato’s head to put him out of his misery, prompting Hannibal to inform her that she technically killed him. During another dinner scene, Hannibal serves Sogliato to two patrons of the Caponni Library.  He tells them they are eating spring lamb.  Later that evening Hannibal helps Bedelia wash her hair and she asks Hannibal to talk about the first spring lamb he ate, which she then implies was his sister Misha. During the last scene of the episode, Hannibal and Du Maurier have another “session” in which they once again discuss forgiveness and betrayal.  Hannibal’s sister Misha comes up in their conversation
