Tonight's Hannibal season finale is a feel-good family romp filled with puppies and rainbows and unicorns dipped in glitter!

Or wait, no, it's actually one of the most shocking hours of television this season, with what executive producer Bryan Fuller calls a "huge, ‘Oh my God' cliffhanger." (We saw it, and he's not kidding.)

"Knock wood, the final course [season finale] is incredibly surprising and satisfying," Fuller tells us exclusively. "It plays on some of the iconic imagery that we've known from the Hannibal Lector movies, and delivers it in a unique way through the characters in this show. And how we subvert expectations and also propel the story forward through to season two is going to be a pretty rich meal in and of itself."

Yum? So pour yourself a nice chianti and savor these seven juicy season-finale teases:

  1. Hannibal Lector cries.
  2. Will is in dire need for some super-powered Drano for his kitchen sink. Got some? If not, could you hit up CVS? Thankssomuch.
  3. Will wears orange.
  4. Someone gets shot.
  5. Hugh Dancy (Will) appears in his underwear—Yes, that happens every episode but must be duly noted.
  6. The showstopping line "I can see you now" will make you scream at your TV.
  7. So will the final image, which is incredibly cool.

NBC has picked up season two of Fuller's genius and ever-more-addictive Hannibal, which has garnered critical acclaim and a cult following in its first season.  And when you see what goes down tonight, you fans will be relieved there will be more story to be told.

After tonight's Hannibal finale, check back here to tell us what you thought, and score some exclusive scoop on season two!
