Good episode, dr. Lecter is creepier and creepier and the same time more and more intriguing! And dare I say it... charming.
Finally we saw Gillian Anderson's character, hope to see more of her!
PS I don't even get what you are talking about when you say you don't understand Mikkelsen. I understand him perfectly well, and English is not my first language (neither is Danish if that matters).
