So, it turns out Hannibal's Will Graham isn't quite the psychopath he's been made out to be.

On Friday's episode, Will (Hugh Dancy) remained under suspicion, particularly by Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas), after the "body" of Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) was found charred after taking a ride in a flaming wheelchair. But when Alana pushed the issue too hard with Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), he was forced to show Alana the truth: Freddie is alive and well, and Jack and Will have been working together to trap Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen).

So, Jack knows everything?
 It was interesting over the last few episodes to be playing Jack Crawford without commitment to any one person's point of view. Now, we realize he is in fact one of the architects of this whole plan. He told Will, "If you hook him, I'll land him," and we see that Jack has gone to crazy extremes to facilitate catching Hannibal. But there are things that even Jack doesn't know. For example, I don't think Jack knows that Will ate somebody. [Laughs] I think that's something that Will may have kept to himself.

Who were Will and Hannibal dining on last week?
 That was Randall Tier. The two choices would be either Randall Tier or the donated corpse of the woman they falsified to be Freddie Lounds. And, God knows how long that body's been on the shelf! [Laughs] At least we know Randall is fresh meat.

Does Jack know that Will killed Randall Tier? Even though it was self-defense, is Jack worried about Will getting his hands too dirty in this con?
 We become increasingly aware of how much Jack knows and how much he's been in on things. Without spoiling moves that are coming up, Jack knows a tremendous amount and has really stuck his neck out. I don't think anybody can be certain which way Will is going to swing in the final moments. We see the temptation and the seduction with Will. I don't think all of it is an act; I think he is genuinely being seduced and it's genuinely dangerous territory for him to be in. He's paying a psychic price to catch a killer.
