NBC is inviting fans to reflect back on the Great Red Dragon as “Hannibal” comes to a close in its Season 3 finale.
The network uploaded a “post-mortem” video to YouTube prior to the final episode of “Hannibal” hitting airwaves. In it, star Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price) interviews Richard Armitage (Francis Dolarhyde), Rutina Wesley (Reba McClane) and director Guillermo Navarro.
They discuss their favorite scenes — spoilers: One involves a tiger — and their thoughts on Dolarhyde’s rise to glory in Season 3. Navarro particularly applauds Wesley and Armitage’s portrayal of Dolarhyde and McClane’s relationship.
“It’s fantastic how you guys performed it, so in. You are there. You’re in their shoes, you’re living his anxiety, his contradictions, her fear — wanting to rescue that man that for her is the greatest man of her life,” he gushes. “She found a man she loves, and for him too. So they’re there for each other, they’re meant to be, and he can’t.”
“Hannibal’s” series finale airs Saturday, Aug. 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
