And behold, the Great Red Dragon  
First look at Hannibal: Season 3 that, yes, includes a quick glimpse at Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde.

!!!!

So, I've found my excitement--and am actually intrigued by the first half of the season with Hannibal and Bedelia than I've ever been--but I remain cautiously optimistic. I'm never going to be entirely thrilled that we're only getting six episodes of Red Dragon AND the fact that Hannibal will still eat up that time in order to appeal to the core fanbase. (I'm guessing; I hope Hannibal will be used sparingly in the back-end of the season.)

Anyway, two more weeks, Fannibals. Two. More. Weeks.

*runs around shrieking*

Oh, wow, this is not a drill. This is actually happening, and it looks GREAT! Excited (and terrified) though I am for Dolarhyde (love poor Armitage's reaction to everybody's shock and horror), I'm really, really excited to watch things unfold in Europe with Hannibal and Bedelia, too. Cannot wait.

Do you have any speculations or predictions for what might happen?

LOL Like I said, for the first time I'm excited about the first-half of the season. But nothing trumps my excitement (and worry) for the Red Dragon storyline.

I did laugh at Armitage not knowing ANYTHING about Dolarhyde/the Red Dragon but everyone else around him knowing the character the reactions. I'M SO FUCKING PUMPED. I just hope the first-half doesn't kill my excitement.

Not really, other than the obvious: Will is going to be heading to Italy to capture Hannibal, Hannibal's going to jail, and then Dolarhyde's coming in (with my baby girl Reba). I feel like S3 is so open, that anything could happen, you know? At least with S1 going into S2 we had a clearer idea that Will's arc was trying to prove his innocence and convincing everyone else that Hannibal was a serial killer. But, the Red Dragon stuff looks like it's ripped straight from the book.

Although [Spoiler (click to open)]
it looks like Alana is hooking up with Margot. . . which, ugh, I'm not here for. Once again Alana is being slotted into the love interest role or she's once again going to be metaphorically used as a sexual proxy. And, look, I'm all for lesbian and bi- representation but it feels very crow-bar-y to me that Alana is bi-/pan/whatever is going on there. PLUS there's the whole sub-plot of Margot and her girlfriend stealing Mason's sperm so they can have a Verger kid from the book Hannibal. . . so, if Alana is that GF then. . . UGGGGGHHHHHH. If, in fact, that's what is going on. Which I think it is. Which, I'm side-eyeing you, Fuller. SO. FREAKING. HARD.

Yup yup yup. Oh, it will be so fun to compare Armitage's Dragon interpretation to Voldemort's Fiennes'.

What. The. Crap. That makes no sense whatsoever, especially since it seems Alana can't get a break. I really, really want Alana to stand on her own, and just get her crap together, without any more drama. What's wrong with introducing a new character? We've had plenty new, briefly explored characters in previous seasons. *sigh* Guess we're all going to start side-eyeing.
