— Brett Arnold, Business Insider
- Adam Bryant: I was shocked by how bad I did feel for Hannibal. He looked so heartbroken.
- Fuller: When he smells Freddie Lounds on Will Graham, Mads' performance is so struck in that moment because Hannibal was convinced. Will's plan succeeded; he absolutely seduced Hannibal Lecter. That's part of it for Hannibal. "You tricked me, and I allowed myself to be tricked." The other part was just the devastating loss of the friendship.
- Adam Bryant: You said next season will be different. Does that mean you're shifting the point of view to be more squarely about Hannibal?
- Fuller: Season 3 is going to be a lot of fun because it's going to be taking a lot of disparate elements from the novel Hannibal Rising and the novel Hannibal and mashing them up together as part of the thrust of the season. It's going to be fun to bastardize two novels into one sort of Frankenstein season. I will brace everybody right now: We're significantly changing the Hannibal origin story from Hannibal Rising.
HANNIBAL: All our destinies flying and swimming in blood and emptiness.
No episode of Hannibal more closely resembles the beautiful senseless carnage of a tragedy. “Mizumono" is about life and death, fire and water, flesh and blood, family and enemy, the deepest love and the most profound betrayal.
[N.B. spoilers for all episodes; gore, mentions of abuse.]
A flawless analysis of the season 2 finale, I must say.
