Hell ya man. As popular as the show is, it definitely does not receive nearly enough praise. That season finale was every bit (probably more) shocking than anything shows like Game of Thrones or Walking Dead have shown us...as much as I love GoT.
You should pop into Random Thought of the Day Thread. I had no idea there was another Hannibal fan among the site, other than myself and hunter. It's truly a spectacular work of art, I was singing some pretty high praises about the finale back when it aired (at Random Thought)...am absolutely stoked for Season 3.
