Carvings symbolizing the Great Red Dragon are retrieved from crime scenes, casting light on Francis Dolarhyde's warped psyche. Meanwhile, both Dolarhyde and Will seek the wisdom of Hannibal Lecter.
Did You Know?
Dollarhyde (Richard Armitage
) has focused his life and delusions around one piece of art by poet and visual artist William Blake (the ink-and-watercolor work "The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun," created circa 1803-1805). But the scene in this episode in which Dollarhyde takes Reba (Rutina Wesley
) to interact with a (sedated) tiger is a reference to a different Blake work, the 1794 poem "The Tyger." This poem, which starts, "Tyger Tyger, burning bright," was further referenced in the episode by the special effects used to enhance and exaggerate the colors of the tiger as Reba touches it.

As Reba touches the fake tiger, you can see through its ear flap. The ear flap is practically transparent. See more
