From the Greater Manchester Museums Group:

The Devil’s Fireplace
1846

This sandstone fireplace is carved with figures of The Devil, a lawyer and a parson.  It is known as The Devil’s Fireplace and originally stood in The Abbey Inn, Oldham.

This fireplace was commissioned by the landlord of The Abbey Inn on West Street when it was rebuilt in 1846. The pub was fitted out with a medieval theme and originally contained several other carvings and stained glass windows. The fireplace came into Gallery Oldham’s collections in 1938 when Oldham Brewery modernised the building.

The carved figures of the Devil holding onto a lawyer and a parson are designed to illustrate the saying ‘The lawyer pleads for all, the parson prays for all, but the Devil takes all.’  In 1819 the Abbey Inn had been the site of a notorious inquest into the death at Peterloo of local man John Lees.  Perhaps the carving is a comment on this injustice or it may have been intended only to amuse. Whatever its origins this rather gruesome piece has long been a favourite item of Gallery Oldham’s collections.” [emphasis added]

I have always found this moment in Aperitivo compelling.  Will is unusually and painfully vulnerable with Jack.  And, as expected, in order to achieve this level of honesty with Jack, Will must avert his eyes.

Intriguingly, the moment which should lead the audience to a full understanding of Will’s confession is cut: the landing of Will’s middle-distant stare.  Had we seen Will lower his eyes, we would have inferred shame – or something like.  Had we seen him immediately return his gaze to his work, we would have understood that the confession was merely a statement of fact.  And had we seen Will turn to look at Jack, we would have seen Will looking for acceptance or even forgiveness.

As the scene stands, the camera cuts from Will’s face immediately before we see his gaze land.  It is an unrequited moment for the audience.  Not being certain of Will’s intention has always made me uncomfortable and curious, and, ultimately, envious of Bryan’s mastery of storytelling.

Francisco Guerrero (aka “El Chalequero,” “The Mexican Bluebeard,” “The Consulada River Strangler/Ripper,” and/or “The Mexican Ripper”) was born in 1840 in the Bajio region of Mexico.  His childhood was marked by poverty, maternal abuse and paternal absence.

Guerrero raped, robbed and beheaded more than twenty women – primarily prostitutes – and attacked minors in the outskirts of Mexico City between the early 1880s and 1908.  He was also known to bite his sexual victims.

After his arrest in 1888 for the murder of two women, Guerrero was compared with Jack the Ripper: both targeted prostitutes approximately 40 years of age, both left gruesome wounds, both were blamed for previously unsolved crimes, and rumor had it that both were physicians or at least educated men.

At his 1890 trial, specialists were called upon to decide if he was criminally responsible.  They concluded that he was not mentally ill, but a “born criminal.”  Guerrero’s explanation of his behavior was that his victims had wounded his “self esteem as a man.”

After his release from prison in 1906, he robbed and beheaded an old woman.  Upon interrogation for that crime, he confessed: “Yes, I killed her.  I don’t know, sir… I don’t understand  what happens in me; but every woman inspires in me a terrible desire to commit a crime.”

[W]hen one … meets with his other half, the actual half of himself, … the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy, and one will not be out of the other’s sight, … even for a moment: these are the people who pass their whole lives together, and yet they could not explain what they desire of one another. For the intense yearning which each of them has towards the other does not appear to be the desire of lover’s intercourse, but of something else which the soul of either evidently desires and cannot tell, and of which she has only a dark and doubtful presentiment. … [H]uman nature was originally one and we were a whole, and the desire and pursuit of the whole is called love.”  – Aristophane’s Speech in Plato’s,  Symposium
