Meanwhile, Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), the head of Behavioural Sciences at the FBI, is dealing with his own conflicted feelings about Will – a man he pressurised into assisting with his earlier investigations, despite Will’s obviously damaged psyche. Looking for answers, Jack turns to a man he has come to trust: Hannibal Lecter.
