Alana Bloom, Hannibal
Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas)
On psychological thriller–horror Hannibal, Dr. Alana Bloom was introduced in the first season as a psychology professor, Hannibal Lecter’s former student, and Will Graham’s colleague and friend. She is romantically attracted to Will, even kissing him, but avoids having a relationship with him due to his mental instability. In the second season she begins a sexual relationship with Hannibal until she finds out the truth about him in the season finale.
Alana becomes the therapist of a woman named Margot Verger. Margot had suffered years of abuse at the hands of her demented twin brother, Mason, leaving her psychologically scarred and infertile. The two of them teamed up to steal Mason’s sperm to ensure that there was a Verger heir and retain the family fortune, before killing him in self-defense.
Though it was canon in the series that Alana and Margot met, fell in love and eventually married, they had little screen time together and most of their relationship happened off screen. However, in one episode they did share an on-screen sexual encounter.
At the end of Season 3, there was a three-year time jump and Alana, Margot and their son are seen fleeing for their lives in a helicopter, as Lecter had escaped prison and would likely make good on his threat to Alana that he would kill her family when he got out. The series was then canceled.
