colour study | alana bloom + blue
Blue associates Alana with a much more professional side of herself compared to when she wears red. Whereas she still allows herself to voice her opinions on a situation, she is perhaps almost unknowingly led in that direction by Hannibal.
In the first season, blue is used in an interesting way where she unconsciously shifts between two agendas with Abigail. Compared to when she wears red and showing maternal protectiveness for Abigail, when Alana wears blue, she chooses to approach Abigail to observe her behavior, which she then reports back with her own opinion to Hannibal and Jack. She also wears blue in scenes where Hannibal’s manipulation is obvious, such as when he knocks her out to help Abigail hide Nicholas Boyle’s body, when she is discussing Will’s increasingly unstable state of mind with Jack and Hannibal, and when she and Jack chase down Will to stop him from killing Hannibal.
Alana wears blue when she is working with Hannibal or rather, when she is not on Will’s side. In Trou Normand, when she tells him she cannot pursue a relationship with him because he is unstable, and in Rôti when Will rebuffs her playful flirtations because of being well aware what she thinks of him. This emotional distancing is more obvious after Mukozuke when she stops wearing red altogether in favour of blue. Compared to when she still had lingering hope for Will in early episodes of Season 2, she steps over to Hannibal’s side and walks away from Will’s for good.
