I can't decide what to think of the season finale. Having Will, Jack, and Alana all at death's door as the show ended was dramatic indeed but came perilously close to shark jumping. So what though? Hannibal is a Big 4 network show so what else should I have expected? I did love seeing Hannibal, now cleaned up and well dressed again sitting in first class on, I assume, some sort of international flight, accompanied by of all people, Dr. Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson). I liked that because Anderson has invested Dr. Du Maurier with a certain chilly untrustworthiness, which fits well with her decision to hook up with Hannibal.
Where did Abigail come from? I could have sworn she was shown rather definitively to have died in an earlier episode. Obviously I missed something, or, as another poster suggested, the whole blood bath in Hannibal's house was a dream. With this show, one never knows?
Despite its not infrequent over the top storytelling, Hannibal is so stylish and brilliantly acted, I forgive it. I'll be there with bated breath when Season 3 begins.
