Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    “The assertion that all gods demand sacrifices is not quite true, though it’s a common enough trope to not deserve excessive nitpicking”

    It definitely builds on Jack’s role in Will’s fate. Throughout the series we see that even if Hannibal wasn’t there, Will would probably end badly because Jack needs his skills.

    “See also the vast arrogance of aspiring towards being a “nemesis””

    Whereas Hannibal never grants him the privilege of a personal mutilation – that, to me, says a huge amount about how little Hannibal thinks of Chilton.

    “this intentionality is much less clearly communicated with Will”

    This is a very interesting moment in Will’s development for me. In some crucial ways he is different from Hannibal, his drive for violence motivated by a sense of justice rather than a desire to punish the rude or transform those he deems worthy of it. Him setting Chilton up in this way either moves him closer to Hannibal – Chilton is annoying, so he gets what’s coming to him – or to Jack, who is similarly willing to sacrifice people in order to get the bad guy, and in either case reveals his monstrousness. Between God and Satan, whoever wins, we lose.
