I thought Hannibal
kept getting better as the season progressed and that the finale was the best episode of the season. I'm still trying to figure out whether Dr. Du Maurier is aware of Hannibal's predilections. The end of this episode was the mirror image of the aftermath of Will having discovered that Hannibal was a serial killer in Red Dragon
. In that one, although Hannibal was captured and incarcerated in a mental hospital, it wasn't until after he had almost killed Will. In the TV show, Hannibal has convinced the authorities that Will is a serial killer and it's Will who is in mental institution, while Hannibal is still free as a bird. That's an interesting twist, to say the least.Hannibal
has a really strong cast. Both of its stars, Hugh Dancy as Will Graham and Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lecter, have been great. I have also been very impressed with the performances of all of the supporting players. There hasn't been a weak link in the bunch. In this connection, I hope that Dr. Du Maurier, played by the beautiful and talented Gillian Anderson continues to be a part of the show. Bring on Season 2!
