The world of NBC's "Hannibal" is rife with gruesome moments, gobs of blood and dark lighting -- so, yeah, Hugh Dancy sometimes worries that his tortured character Will Graham is drowning in the gloom.

"I do worry that Will is having a rough time with it," Dancy told The Times, playing with the idea of a lighter episode for his character, consisting of him in a meadow with the dogs just "laughing and laughing."

Dancy joined The Envelope for a live Web chat from his New York home. He touched on everything from his favorite "Hannibal" pooch (Winston, played by a dog named Heidi) and the problem with Will's ever-flowing sweat glands.

We also spoke about getting into the mindset of Will's dark and torturous mental journey this season in his quest to catch Hannibal Lecter at his game.

"The important thing for me was to be clear that Will couldn't just pull the wool over Hannibal's eyes," he said. "Will had to open himself up to go down the rabbit hole and be willing to take the consequences. That was the trick for me."

And with the help of one viewer's twistedly on-point mind, Dancy revealed what part of the human body he imagines his palate would find most delectable -- his answer would surely please Hannibal. And he teased what to expect in Friday's season finale. So watch!
