Hey there internet cupcakes, I reckon it’s time for a livestream! For this one, we will either be playing Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, which is the sequel to the acclaimed lantern oil scavenger hunt Amnesia: The Dark Descent, or Ride to Hell: Retribution, which is about riding a motorcycle…
You don’t know how hard this made me laugh.
One of two moments that genuinely made me laugh in this movie.
Imagine if Sirius could have raised Harry and when he sent a howler to him in his second year for driving the car to school.
"I’M NOT EVEN MAD, I’M ACTUALLY IMPRESSED. MERLIN’S BLOODY BALLS I’M PROUD."
And Remus in the background “SIRIUS NO.”
During this scene I was struck by her standing almost perfectly between the curtains. It took me a second to place it, specifically where it seemed familiar. Then I realized that it looked familiar because she looks a lot like The High Priestess of the Major Arcana in tarot.
In most decks, the artwork that is given to the High Priestess follows three themes - a woman sitting on a throne (or standing) between two curtains or pillars, with stars above her. In Bedelia’s case, she is standing between two curtains which are making… pillars of light.
Another part of the episode, her conversation with Jack, has her sitting straight and firm in the chair she’s in - something often shown in High Priestess imagery.
In Tarot the High Priestess usually is connected to the following - Intuition, higher Powers, mystery, and the subconcious mind. Even reversed it fits what Bedelia shows in the episode. A hidden agenda, the need to listen to an inner voice. Bedelia is cutting ties with all of the people associated with Hannibal, but isn’t telling them why. She knows that Hannibal is dangrous, and that being around him will result in her death. (If Hannibal is to be compared to The Devil, either of Christianity or Tarot, she could be seen as ‘breaking free of his chains’.)
She is also a therapist - she works with the mind, often the subconcious mind. Another connection to the card.
To take it one step further. Looking up her name on Behind The Name brings you to Bridget - ‘Exalted One’. It’s possible to argue that, by her leaving Hannibal behind, she’s symbolically ascending and leaving his reach.
This is, of course, only scratching the surface of the Tarot card, a cliff notes version. Even with that in mind, it’s possible that the symbolism was intentionally put there.
