HANNIBAL Season Finale 2x13 Promo Stills + Spoilers!

Hannibal season 2 is nearing the end as the season finale is set for May 23. Episode 13 of the season is titled “Mizumono.” It will include the end of the brutal fight scene between Hannibal and FBI’s Jack Crawford that began as a flash-forward in the season’s beginning.

“We only showed that big reveal [of the Jack-Hannibal scrum] because we knew we had a whole bunch of other ones in our back pocket!” showrunner Bryan Fuller told us. “The audience will be going, ‘There’s that moment and that moment and that moment — and then there’s the ending! Good God!’”

Director David Slade returned to film the finale after shooting the pilot, putting a touch there that reflects the central characters coming full circle ”in a symmetrical way that’ll be satisfying and disturbing for the audience,” Fuller said. He also noted that there will be several cliffhangers the season ends on.

“The finale is all about forgiveness,” he said.

“We don’t choose forgiveness, it just appears one day in our hearts and in our consciousness. When you think about all the acts of duplicity and betrayal that have been woven through this second season, it feels like an appropriate concept to explore.”

NBC officially renewed Hannibal for a season 3 recently.

The official description for the finale is as follows:

“Hannibal prepares for his imminent departure with, he believes, Will. Will prepares for a departure of another sort, tying up loose ends, not sure if he’ll survive the trap he’s set for Hannibal. Both men feel that Jack (Laurence Fishburne) deserves the truth, but what is that truth? Loyalties will be tested and forgiveness will be asked … and the inevitable battle between Hannibal and Jack is upon them.”

How close does Mason Verger from here resemble the film character?
lightwillguide 19th-May-2014 04:57 pm (UTC)
Do you mean when he's all chopped up? This is very different, but I think not having all the prosthetics around the eyes will help Michael Pitt emote a bit more. The Gary Oldman makeup in Hannibal was striking and quite close to the books, so I kind of like that they took this a bit differently.
darkwarrior 19th-May-2014 04:59 pm (UTC)
Less restrained, film Verger was, from memory, just a bitter, psychopathic, sadist. TV Verger is more anarchistic and fearless, it's no coincidence that many people drew allusions to TDK's Joker.

he's jollier than the first day of spring.

up until the last ep, this was the pre-face mutilation mason verger that the films haven't yet explored. so if you're asking about that, their destruction looks nothing alike, film!verger looked like an eel with waxy skin mixed with old potato. tvshow!verger's bottom half of the face was sliced off in thin layers like bacon, there's only two rows of white teeth and then red bleeding flesh that makes him look a like two-face.

I love how Hannibal is packed for France, waiting for Will, and it's not going to happen lol

Can't wait for next season!!! This one has been amazing.

Lmao. Aww poor Hannibal.
etoile_amore 19th-May-2014 04:57 pm (UTC)
Watching the previous episode now! I fucking love Michael Pitt; Mason's so ridiculous.

Did Will actually explain everything to Freddie and then she believed it?
darkwarrior 19th-May-2014 04:57 pm (UTC)
That second image looks like a massive spoiler, it's a person with Hannibals hair in an orange suit that Hannibal wouldn't eat someone in.
alfendi 19th-May-2014 05:04 pm (UTC)
Lmao oh man. I thought that was Cynthia Nixon's character at first glance.
schoolin 19th-May-2014 05:04 pm (UTC)
it's not Hannibal
darkwarrior 19th-May-2014 05:14 pm (UTC)
Ah fair enough. I knew Hannibal was too stylish for that.
ophiodeiros 19th-May-2014 05:22 pm (UTC)
looks like the shitty writing of s2!alana continues, her characterisation has been off the rails the entire season.

so, more emotional office yelling at her bosses? so innovative, fuller is outdoing himself

i don't want it to be the finale this week...i'm gonna miss this weird ass show :(
theladyflash 19th-May-2014 06:07 pm (UTC)
same :(
miwa201 19th-May-2014 05:06 pm (UTC)
Freddie looks flawless. I really hope Jack doesn't die.

Can't believe the finale is almost upon us; where the hell did this series go?!

Oh shit Fishburne gets axed?!
bluejeanbaby78 19th-May-2014 07:38 pm (UTC)
It just now occurred to me...if the show can really take off and they do get their 7-season arc, what do they do with Hugh Dancy after the designated Red-Dragon-Season-4? I mean it's called Hannibal but Will is the protagonist of the show. And I am now wondering if they're going to kill off Jack and have Will take on a similar role which would put him as Clarice's mentor in the future seasons, to keep the familiar face around. I can't decide if I hope I'm wrong or right.
ophiodeiros 19th-May-2014 10:18 pm (UTC)
They don't have rights for Clarice which probably means they'll either come up with a female OC that'll resemble her or expand Will's role, which seems likely. They're already borrowing book dialogues that happen between Clarice and Lecter for tv show Will/Hannibal scenes.
spankmypirate 19th-May-2014 05:18 pm (UTC)
Ugh I'm excited and sad at the same time. Do not want this season to end.

Last week was so gloriously fucked up.
malidocious 19th-May-2014 05:29 pm (UTC)
Yes! I agree with this wholeheartedly.
complisult 19th-May-2014 05:18 pm (UTC)
They have a lot to wrap up with this one episode, dang. Also, I hope we at least get a mention of poor Chilton.
ophiodeiros 19th-May-2014 05:23 pm (UTC)
i think they'll leave the GP viewers to slowly forget him, so when he pops up in next season(s) the "surprise, bitch!" moment won't underwhelm.

Hannibal prepares for his imminent departure with, he believes, Will.

lmao aww
logan_lerman 19th-May-2014 05:26 pm (UTC)
i was worried for where this season was going tbh but the last ep has brought it all back around for me

can't believe we're already at the finale nooooo. at least there's no waiting game this year to see if it'll get picked up for another season

Will's basically gonna leave him at the alter, poor lamb lol.

scrolling through ontd and I thought this was a time warp post, that girl before the cut looks just like young nicole kidman hair and all
ophiodeiros 19th-May-2014 05:42 pm (UTC)
she does! i thought that all the way back in s1. this photo is especially striking with nicole's moulin rogue hair and that top

it's crazy how 2014 nicole looks nothing the 1992, her face and hair progression was subtle but over the decades of time they're 2 different people
korralin 19th-May-2014 05:56 pm (UTC)
its a shame, she had (has?) my dream body with a face carved by the angels
ophiodeiros 19th-May-2014 06:05 pm (UTC)
i think she was always a beautiful woman and her naked body in eyes wide shut was one of my first ideals when i was in primary school, still is one of them. she looked so ethereal, fragile ballet dancer body and made me love my boobs haha

i don't think she looks as bad as people say tbh. yes, she overdoes botox and her lip injections are leaning towards fish lips but her always eventually face settles (her timing for "corrections" is just off bc it's always too soon before red carpet appearances) and i think stoker proved she can still act viewers' heads off.
korralin 19th-May-2014 06:12 pm (UTC)
omg same her body in eyes wide shut changed my life for real!! and I think she's still pretty but all the crap she did was unnecessary
ophiodeiros 19th-May-2014 06:19 pm (UTC)
*wow that's the weirdest sequence of words in the 2nd paragraph there. what the hell?
rockstarsex 19th-May-2014 05:38 pm (UTC)
does Alana ever wear anything other than those v-neck tie dresses jw
kristinized 19th-May-2014 06:01 pm (UTC)
I don't think Jack is going to die in the finale, probably Hannibal will her the police coming and skedaddle and then Jack will get rushed to the hospital.

I can't believe the season is almost over, there definitely wasn't enough Freddie this year
ophiodeiros 19th-May-2014 06:59 pm (UTC)
I think Fishburne asked for fighting scenes when he got jealous over Mads' so I don't know it that means the way confrontation between Hannibal and FBI happens is only adjusted into an action scene and without it Jack's life wouldn't be in question at all or if that's been intended from the start. But either way, I don't believe they'd kill him.

Strong/well-known cast is one of the benefits of the show and they already had to reduce involvement of many characters' whose sought-after actors were overbooked on other projects (Anderson, Esparza, Torres). I doubt they'd kill Fishburne like that, everyone already has plenty of motives to catch Hannibal without another colleague dead.
theladyflash 19th-May-2014 06:11 pm (UTC)
I don't want it to end. But the last episode made me soooo squeamish WTF so hard. Even though I knew Mason's disfigurement was coming. But I thought Hannibal was drugging him to sleep to cut, eat some of his face and then Mason wake up with no face kind of thing...but the route they went was so shocking.
allodole 19th-May-2014 07:19 pm (UTC)
The fight! Finally!!!! Also yessssss to Freddie and maybe Alana having actually something to do for once.
jess_sayin 19th-May-2014 07:51 pm (UTC)
yeah we get one last cooking scene!
boo we only have one more episode left!
Hoping for a chilton update....
ophiodeiros 19th-May-2014 07:55 pm (UTC)
what makes you think it's the last, he's off to france. lol as if fuller would pass up a chance to troll us with hannibal's rendition of omelete du fromage
jess_sayin 19th-May-2014 07:58 pm (UTC)
*last cooking scene of the season.
But i'm ready for french cuisine.
ophiodeiros 19th-May-2014 08:00 pm (UTC)
it's funny they used up french cuisine themed episodes in s1. has the s3 theme been announced yet?
pastelstar 19th-May-2014 08:32 pm (UTC)
Oh god I hope Jack's giant body holds a lot of blood.

But I'm gonna lol forever when Hannibal is on the run and the man of his dreams Will chooses his puppies instead.
cekhmet 19th-May-2014 11:11 pm (UTC)
Watching this with some friends. I wanna make something cute to snack on but I can't think of anything. If I was Halloween time I'd have a lot more 'creepy' stuff to help. Ideas?
binkleywtf 20th-May-2014 03:12 am (UTC)
I saw a recipe for shortbread cookies that look like fingers. You could add red icing or food coloring. The way I bake it would turn out an unrecognizable mess, tho.
