To say that Dr. Lecter and Will Graham parted on bad terms last year would be a bit of an understatement. You know, unless you consider being gutted (and I don't mean emotionally) a symbolic gesture of everlasting friendship. Because, in that case, all is well. Seriously, though, that had to be the worst dinner party in dinner party history, right? It's even making me reevaluate my participation in social functions. So where can these two characters possibly go from here? Luckily, NBC seeks to answer that very question, which is why the network has just released a brand new Hannibal Season 3 trailer that shows Will (alive and well!) doing everything he can to track down his cannibalistic comrade.
And while a ton of faces — both new and old — flash before our eyes in what's already looking to be another suspenseful and thrilling ride, it's what happens at the very end of the video that's left me utterly perplexed. As Will plays a game of catch and mouse with Hannibal in what appears to be a dark, underground tunnel, the former patient softly whispers to his former therapist three very puzzling words: "I forgive you." Umm… WHAT?! This guy figuratively stabbed you in the back and physically stabbed you in the stomach. Not to mention the fact that he's killed people you care about and completely messed with your mind. Oh, and did I mention that he also EATS PEOPLE?!
Right now it's unclear if Will actually means what he says or if this is just another mind game attempt to try and lure Lecter back into arm's reach. (I'm rooting for the latter.) But enough of my ranting. Let's go ahead and dissect what we've learned.

Seriously, this lady is gorgeous and may or may not be getting younger looking by the day. And given this little should tap, I'd say Hannibal approves.
