I think when that journalist gets killed one day for real the flaming wheelchair would be used again as poetic justice.
I think the next season would have hannibal being hunted down by the crazy bilionaire. It makes sense that way. The actor who plays the billionaire can't disappear for one season and come back again.
So if i am correct we would have the events taking place in the hannibal movie in the season 3 and silence of the lambs in season 4; which basically means the sequence of the movies would be changed.
And how did he manage to convince (or was it intimidate) skully's character into coming with him? Amazing. Lovely couple though.
I am a bit sad he chose to kill abigail who brought the human side of him. Now there is nothing but ironically we still like him.
