So from this post-finale interview:
And then Abigail also was a surprise for Will, though not in the way Hannibal originally intended.
Fuller: It’s so romantic! It’s such a romantic gesture. [Laughs]
Gutting Will and slicing Abagail’s throat was decidedly less romantic, however. Did he just want to hurt Will as much as possible?
Fuller: Absolutely. [He’s saying,] “This is the world that we could’ve had together and it was going to be beautiful. And you ruined everything.”
So yeah, a part of me adores this show because I loved the source material– but another part of me is massively jealous because Bryan Fuller is being paid produce slash fan-fiction. So much love from me, so much envy!!!
No you say? He’s taken the characters of another author, and put them in a homoerotic story, for the pleasure of those characters fans.
Thank you, have a good night.
