Hannibal Season 3 is finally on the horizon and, from the look of the trailers, it’s going to be INSANE. If you’ve forgotten what’s happened so far, or just want to relive the cannibalistic magic for the eightieth time, take a look at our guide to Hannibal Season 2, as told by the craziest and most shocking WTF moments. [Catch up on Hannibal Season 1 here]
DAPPER FIGHTING. BLOOD EVERYWHERE. WE’RE THREE SECONDS IN, JACK IS NEARLY DEAD AND HANNIBAL IS BUSTING THE PANTRY DOOR DOWN. WHAT THE HELL, BRYAN FULLER?
Oh, oh, okay. 12 weeks earlier. Everything is fine.
OH WAIT, NO IT’S NOT. Will gets hypnotised and remembers Hannibal forcing a bloody EAR down his THROAT.
EVERYTHING IS NOT OKAY
I REPEAT, EVERYTHING IS FUCKED TO HELL
This chappie here would rather jump off a cliff into the jaggedy rocks below than face the crazy motherfucker who put his ass in the messed up silo eye mural in the first place.
Hannibal goes and kills the silo motherfucker, and sews him into his own mural. That Hannibal, what is he like, eh?
Bedelia Du Maurier visits Will’s crazy ass in prison and tells him that she believes him. We all get goosebumps.
Will goes to trial, the prosecution paints him as an intelligent psychopath, Jack admits he might have pushed him too far, blah blah blah, and Will’s lawyer gets a GODDAMN EAR IN THE POST.
The alleged Ear-Cut Killer Andrew Sykes gets into a spot of bother.
The judge also gets into a spot of bother.
MOTHERFUCK. Are those BEES?
THIS GUY IS STILL ALIVE
Beverly Katz gets suspicious of Hannibal (about bloody time, mate) and goes for a sneak around his pad. She finds some funky shit.
HANNIBAL FINDS HER! RUN, BEVERLY! RUN! IS SHE ALIVE? DID SHE MAKE IT? WE JUST DON’T KNOW
An orderly from the prison admits he killed Ear-Cut Killer Andrew Sykes and Will tells him to kill Hannibal, dun dun duuuuun. Hannibal has his shirt off: we cry of happiness. He is also dying: we cry of sadness. We are lusty and distraught.
Jack shoots the orderly. Hannibal’s shirt is still off.
A local city councillor is SURGICALLY GRAFTED onto a TREE in a PARKING LOT. It’s really pretty but we feel a bit weird for thinking that.
Will tells Jack about the whole ‘Hannibal the Cannibal’ thing. Jack takes some samples at Hannibal’s next dinner party. Finally catching up, Mr Crawford, Jesus Christ.
HANNIBAL AND ALANA BLOOM BUMP UGLIES, OH SNAP. The Bro Code is reduced to nothing.
Hannibal kidnaps Gideon and feeds him his own leg. At this point, nothing is too fucked up any more.
MIRIAM LASS IS ALIVE, HOLY CRAP
Miriam is super positive Hannibal didn’t kidnap her.
MIRIAM GRABS JACK’S GUN AND SHOOTS DR CHILTON IN THE FACE
Will and Jack find a HUMAN SEWN INSIDE A HORSE. IT’S AWFUL.
THERE’S A LIVE BIRD IN HER CHEST CAVITY, EURGH
Apparently, there’s a bloody great animal going round attacking people.
Oh no wait, it’s just a man in a mechanical beast suit, NBD.
Will’s dog Buster is attacked by the Man Beast :’(
WILL KILLS THE MAN BEAST. No one messes with Will’s pooches.
Will sets up the Man Beast’s corpse up as a museum display. A bit weird, but okay.
This guy Mason Verger is one huge WTF moment.
Margot Verger goes to see her bro Mason and finds that he’s breeding pigs to eat people alive.
Freddie Lounds finds the Man Beast suit at Will’s house, UH-OH!
ARE WILL AND HANNIBAL EATING FREDDIE? WHAT IS GOING ON?
2.11 Kō No Mono
A burning body casually roooooolls on through the TattleCrime offices’ parking garage.
It turns out the body is Freddie Lounds.
MARGOT IS PREGNANT! WITH WILL’S CHILD!
Margot wakes up on an operating table to find Mason has made her infertile so he can be the only family heir, what a dickwad.
FREDDIE IS BLOODY ALIVE! ALIVE! WILL PUNK’D HANNIBAL’S ASS
Will dangles Mason over the piggies. He spares him and Mason suggests Hannibal should be dangled over the piggies instead. No one wants to dangle Will over the piggies.
Bedelia is always talking about how Hannibal saved her from a patient but actually it was SHE who killed the patient THIS WHOLE TIME.
Hannibal finally gets dangled over the piggies.
Hannibal escapes, captures Mason Verger and makes him inhale psychedelic drugs. Then he gets Mason to FEED HIS OWN FACE TO WILL’S DOGS
THEN MASON EATS HIS OWN NOSE WHAAAAAAAAAAAT
Jack shows up at Hannibal’s house to confront him and A WHOLE BUNCH OF SHIT GOES DOWN. IT’S FINALLY 12 WEEKS LATER
