Things observed in last night’s episode of Hannibal, Yakimono – the 7th of season 2 (spoilers): Hannibal is now officialy out-V-For-Vendetta-ing V himself. Not content with just manipulating every character in his orbit, he’s now gone uber-meta by setting a chain of events in motion that culminates in radically fucking over the series’ continuity.
Or maybe i’m just i’m just reading too much into his badge…
If that really was the end for Chilton, at least he went out in a more interesting way than getting eaten off-screen in Jamaica. Sorta saw that last bit with Miriam coming, when Hannibal did an uncanny imitation of the doctor, while knocking him out…this in no way lessened the intensity of the 60 minute ass-clenching exercise that was watching the episode.
Also, if Raúl Esparza is unemployed next year, between Hannibal and SVU’s uncertain futures, i hope to God something like Gotham, Constantine, or True Detective find a good use for him.
