My name is Dan. I'm nineteen and a student at Michigan State, and I post whatever I find interesting. Expect Star Trek and The X-Files.
The way Worf doesn’t really talk about the events of DS9 in the TNG movies has always been confusing from a Watsonian perspective (obviously the Doylist reason is ~continuity lockout~). But just imagine it:
"Oh by the way, I got married. No, you can’t meet her, she’s dead actually."
"Yeah, I was in a Jem’hedar prison camp. I’ve been fighting on the front lines. You know, for the war you people an inexplicably not involved in."
"Deanna, did I ever tell you about the time my friend Odo married your mom."
She didn’t become suddenly dense. The writers of the show didn’t suddenly forget who she was and conveniently made her incapable of critical thinking.
There’s a good reason why she doesn’t suspect Lecter : she can’t. She never could : “Any reservation I have against Abigail don’t apply to Hannibal’.
Lecter was her mentor, which means she probably learned hypnotherapy with him (she used a luminous metronome to hypnotize Graham, Lecter used another kind of luminous metronome, more agressive, but still the same device).
Which means Lecter had plenty of time to mess with her head, more time than he had with Graham, more time than he had with Lass. Years. He didn’t just gain her trust. He planted it so firmly in her brain that she would probably split in two if she even thought of him in any negative way, let alone do something about it (you all saw the preview where she stands before him, defenseless, with a gun in her hand). I’m sure she trusts him more than she trusts herself.
You are blaming someone whose eyes were gouged out for not seeing.
Don’t blame the victim. You should have compassion for her, not hate, not indifference.
This is important.
This is very important.
