Hello! Have you all met Francis Dolarhyde yet, then? Episode 8 was finally aired this week in Britain afaik, and Canada has already moved on to episode 9. I saw the second episode of the Red Dragon story line already, and – no spoilers – I can tell you that the story continues to be suspenseful. Armitage is nicely propelling the plot forward. A couple of gripes, but well, that will have to wait until Sunday or Monday. I don’t want to spoil anything yet.
Talking of spoilers – I am working from the premise now, that episode 8 has been published and therefore the contents of the episode is common knowledge. Therefore my list of links will contain references/gifs/images from episode 8. If you have not seen episode 8 yet, and do not want to be spoilt, do not click the links in the first part of today’s round-up that mention Dolarhyde and/or the Red Dragon. Stuff that refers to episode 9 (and is therefore yet unseen by the US-American audience at the time of publishing), has been collected under the separate spoiler warning marked red.

- Asleep/unconscious – and I leave out the “dead” – Guy by ilariaeugealtomasini. He’s NOT dead. Not dead. No no no no no

Enough? Rhetorical question. Never enough! And we are so spoilt now. This is the first time in my fandom experience that I am getting to see new material *week after week*. And guess what – I am tied up with visitors. Noooooooooooo! So I don’t even know whether I can live-tweet tonight, or write my commentary, or even finish my episode 9 RAPS in time… But I trust that you will all have lots of fun with ep 3×09. Enjoy! And have a nice weekend!
