Feminist Elizabethan: The Bechdel, Russo, and Race Test: Hannibal, "...And the Beast from the Sea" - Season 3, Episode 11

On Hannibal, “…And the Beast from the Sea,” the Great Red Dragon attacked Will’s family. The Great Red Dragon’s attempt to kill Will’s family, however, was thwarted as Molly realized just in the nick of time that something was amiss, and she managed to get both herself and her son away from the killer before he had a chance to kill them. That being said, Molly was injured and she did have to undergo surgery, and this, of course, pissed off Will and made him even more determined to capture the Great Red Dragon.
The Bechdel, Russo, and Race Test
“…And the Beast from the Sea” did not pass the Bechdel, Russo or race test.
“…And the Beast from the Sea” did not pass the Bechdel test because the two named women in the episode, Molly and Alana, never spoke to each other. The episode also did not pass the race test, and the episode did not pass this test because while there were a couple of non-White characters in the episode (e.g., Jack, a Black nurse and a Black driver were in “…And the Beast from the Sea”), none of these characters ever talked to each other.
As to the Russo test, depending on one’s perspective, it can both be argued that “…And the Beast from the Sea” did or did not pass the Russo test. For example, Alana, who is LGBTI, was in the episode; she was not defined by her sexual orientation (her sexual orientation wasn’t even brought up); and it can be argued that she was important to the plot of the episode as she was the one who realized that Hannibal was in contact with the Great Red Dragon. However, it can also be argued that Alana was not important to the plot of the episode and that she could have been taken out of...

In light of the tragedy in Orlando, I want to make sure that everyone in this community regardless of your sexual orientation, your religious beliefs, or your political opinions, knows that you're loved. Everyone deserves to love and be loved, to live their lives how they wish, and to feel safe being themselves. Here are a few songs of encouragement, and I hope that anyone affected (which, really, should be all Americans) find peace. Amber - Borders Stand up, fall down, up again Up against the pressure I am in Slowly but surely I begin Jumping trains ‘cause I know I can win I know there’s a plan So thick the fog but I know I can trust The feelings that I feel when the roads rough Park Jungmin - Not Alone I can believe I’m not alone Not alone now, not sad anymore and I can feel it I’m not alone Definitely not alone, never be exhausted again Song Jieun - Don't Look At Me Like That Don’t look at me like that We’re just in love, that’s all Don’t hate on us, however you’re viewing us We’re just a little different Just leave us alone Can’t we live in a world where time stands still? Why? Why not? We did nothing wrong Why? Why not? We’re so in love Ailee - Heaven You taught me love in this harsh world I am happy with you alone Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven If we're together we will never cry never never cry Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Heaven Forever, together never gonna be alone BTS - Save Me Listen to my heartbeat It calls you whenever it wants to Because within this pitch black darkness You are shining so brightly Go spread love today, and every day.
Women Are Clingy, Men Are Romantic
Why is it that when a man performs a wild, extravagant, borderline-stalker gesture, and he's SO ROMANTIC. A woman attempts to sweep a man off of his feet, and we're called crazy. Or clingy. Or obsessive. Why is it more socially acceptable for a man to overly express his emotional side but women need to play it cool when it comes to romance? Writes you letters everyday. Think of the Notebook. We're told to think that's super romantic of the guy, but if a girl did it she'd be seen as obsessed!! Throws rocks at your window. I used to fantasize about that when I was younger, hoping my crush would ride his bike over and say he loves me from the street below. But think about a girl doing that...she's probably stalking you. Shows up outside your classroom door to walk you to your next class. A guy standing outside your office or classroom door is sweet, touching, cute, but a girl might be a little obsessed with you, right? Trying to change your mind about dating them. Girls chasing after their crush telling them 'I'll treat your right!,' ' Just give me one shot,' or anything Heath Ledger said in 10 Things I Hate About You just sounds goofy to think about! Do anything annoyingly musical. Put on a performance in front of the whole school, hold up a boom box outside of your window, whatever it is, guys can do it and girls should sort of...not... Use pick up lines. Guys may get a huge eye roll for using them, but have you ever heard a girl throw out a pick up line at someone at the bar? Probably not. Ladies: Do you ever feel like you can't make any big romantic gestures? What's a romantic thing you've done? Ladies and Gentlemen: Would you be turned on or off by a girl doing a bigger romantic gesture that's usually just considered a guy thing? Personally, I'm all for everyone showing love in as many ways as they can! I'm not super into big romantic things for me personally, but I say guys and gals should be able to do whatever they want!
