Calling it now that in fear of Hannibal being axed early Fuller’s going to be combining the Hannibal storyline involving Mason’s unorthodox attempt at revenge and the Dragon into a season to get it in. Because why else would Pazzi be mentioned?
That’s the hints he’s been dropping for a while now. I don’t know if it’s because of fear of getting axed early or what but dropping Dolarhyde in to season 3 didn’t come as a surprise to me.
A while back, Fuller stated that season 3 is divided into two chapters, the first of which is a combination of Hannibal and Hannibal Rising and lasts seven episodes. He also mentioned that he’s approaching MGM once again for the SOTL rights after season 3 to use them (in particular, Clarice Starling) for the latter half of season 4. He did also state directly that Dolarhyde would appear at some point in 3 as well. So all those things in tandem lead me to come to the conclusion that the latter half of 3 will be RD, not the entirety of season 4. I got a lot of crap for it on another site, actually, since so many people run off Fuller’s older interviews where RD is all of 4 and SOTL is 5.
Ahhhh I see. I’ll have to hang onto this for reference. Since that little bit he just released and earlier the brief discussion of how he wants to make this the best season he can and he sounded like he’s sending it off to the potential of its glorious death in some ways so I think he’s going to compress a fuck of a lot. All I gotta say is if he sixth sense’s Alana Bloom I’m gonna break every window in my house.
I’d provide you with all the links - I like to compile these things especially because I was working on that Clarice Starling essay - but not gonna lie: I’m really lazy today.
Anyway, concerning Alana: I agree with you, but unfortunately I think that may be exactly what’s happening to her. I am also unsure if we’re ever going to see Molly. Hopefully Molly gets addressed at the actual panel…
I think Fuller may be preparing to send the show off, yeah. I could see that as rationale easily.
