Still remember him from Silence of the Lambs.
Ahhhyup. Vile Dr. Chilton, who would one day become the main course. XD
Molina the Merciless and Ving seem to be the Ones Who Cannot Be Touched so far on the show, so I will be interested to see either one of them deal with conflict that takes them out of their comfort zone.
I will have to take a look again at the episode guide re: Hooten, but Gato definitely has a personal crisis on the way. They seem to be taking a storyline from the book and reshaping it for the show, but it could still give him some real meat to chew on.
I winced when he let slip the whole "publishing this in a journal" thing in front of the ex-wife and Michelle.
Same here! Crrringe! And I am glad you pointed this out, because I thought it did bring something interesting to the mix. Between that moment and the "we're cutters" response, it occurred to me that even though Ty's mission with regard to his career (much more clear if you have read the book, the show has only hinted at this so far) is to be the best he can be for the sake of his patients, to connect with them in a way he was denied once... he isn't necessarily a whiz at it. Namely, he's great when he saves a life in urgent peril and the family is just so grateful, but if you throw in a compllication like the one that happened with this guy, he fumbles to a certain extent. In part, perhaps because in his peronal life he's something of a loner and perhaps not as practiced at relating to others in very complex, tricky emotional situations; in any case, Michelle though somewhat blunt in her approach really got in there and did the heavy lifting preparing the family.
I'm wondering if he's sneaking some pharmaceutical uppers to keep him sharp. He always looks like he's about to break, reach over and strangle someone.
Now wouldnt THAT be an interesting twist. I'm not sure he isn't just high strung as all get out, but maybe!
BTW, no dancing babies. EVER. *hiss!* ;)
