Loved the season finale. The final scene & closeup of Will when face to face with Hannibal in " familiar surroundings " gave me chills, and dying to see where they will really turn the heat up next season.
The dynamic between Will and Hannibal is beginning to percolate.
Casting Mads as Lector was genius, and I'm starting to sway to his portrayal as my favorite incarnation
I didn't even realize til half way through the season that main writer / executive producer is the same guy that created Pushing Daisies- one of my favorite shows that unjustly had a short life & is brilliant.
Do a Google seatch on him and read about how all his show creations exist in the same universe. Every show he's done has characters, references, and whatnot show up in his other series. In fact there have already been a number of them pop up in Hannibal that others have pointed out that have greater familiarity with all of his other series creations.
It may be just a novel little idea but I think it's pretty cool and like the idea that you may find something else about a character from series already over or even catch a glimpse into what has been going on with them since the show they were a primary character on ended.
