Margot Verger, Hannibal
Margot Verger (Katharine Isabelle)
On psychological thriller–horror series Hannibal, Margot Verger was introduced in Season 2 as one of Hannibal Lecter’s patients. She had suffered years of abuse at the hands of her demented twin brother, Mason, leaving her psychologically scarred and infertile. In Season 2, she visited Will Grahams house and seduced him, though it was later revealed she only slept with him in an effort to become pregnant, though this was unsuccessful.
Regarding the choice to show Margot, a lesbian, sleeping with a man, creator and showrunner Bryan Fuller commented
In the third season, though Mason was paralyzed he still continued to psychologically torture Margot, and she found solace in the arms of her therapist, Dr. Alana Bloom. 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.
