Here's the full official video (it's an hour and a half, so I haven't watched the whole thing yet), but here are a few quick highlights:
@NBCHannibal: Let the Fannibal Meetup BEGIN!
@NBCHannibal: aaaaand @BryanFuller is wearing another fan's flower crown. This is becoming a thing and we love it.
@NBCHannibal: Flower crown evidence. #Hannibal #SDCC pic.twitter.com/QR9G3jcUYU
(Follow-up to yesterday: a concrete answer to the perennial WTF Flower Crowns question.)
@NBCHannibal: "It's weird when you have to leave your hands inside dead bodies" [direct quote, we swear] - @MrAaronAbrams
@NBCHannibal: Round of applause for Hugh to be in a scene with @GillianA. AGREED!
@NBCHannibal: "My favorite part of the blooper reel is watching @ScottThompson_ react to Laurence yelling because he's terrified." - Hugh
@NBCHannibal: "There were a loooooot of mushroom jokes that hit the cutting room floor" *curses the sky* - @BryanFuller
@NBCHannibal: @DAVID_A_SLADE said his favorite insider reference to the books was "Perception is a tool that's pointed at both ends."
@NBCHannibal: HUGH IS WEARING THE FLOWER CROWN. I REPEAT, HUGH IS WEARING THE FLOWER CROWN.
@NBCHannibal: Hugh wearing the flower crown. We can all go home now. pic.twitter.com/81Y1ChacCo

Then, this morning, I got a message on Tumblr:
aerisaquata asked you: by the way, i'm friends and enabler to the person who gave hugh dancy the flower crown (astrakiseki on tumblr)
there is symbolism~
it's made out of red and white poppies and white daisies, which represents dreams and oblivion! she really wanted to get rhodendrons (beware, i am dangerous) but couldn't find any.
(More on the symbolism at astrakiseki's tumblr.) And here I’d thought it was just an exceptionally attractive floral arrangement. Four for you, Glen Coco! (And none for Hannibal Lecter.)
@NBCHannibal: So we just learned that #Hannibal will be serving people sushi in Episode 1 of Season 2. #KONICHIWA
"Pierced body," eh?
@NBCHannibal: There is a request for Hugh to say "This is my design" in Will Graham's voice. This is happening, people!
@NBCHannibal: "I got to chase @ScottThompson_ around with those balls." - @MrAaronAbrams [presented without context]
Gondor wishes it had no context.
@NBCHannibal: @DAVID_A_SLADE "Hashtag JiggleJiggle" #Hannibal #SDCC #JiggleJiggle
Meanwhile, Bryan Fuller, trolling in the deep.
@NBCHannibal: Hugh just got asked about San Diego's airport carpet. Hat tip to the Fannibal that just asked that.
@Ceilidhann: All the flower crowns to the carpet airport question girl.
@cleolinda: I still don't understand that question, what am I missing? (I also haven't listened to that part yet)
@Ceilidhann: Hugh's admitted he's obsessed with airport carpets. He & his wife contribute to this site: carpetsforairports.com
@Ceilidhann: He was once almost arrested on suspicion of terrorism because he spent so long photographing a carpet.
@Ceilidhann: The couple who document airport carpets together stays together.
In December 2007, the 83 crew and passengers of EasyFlight 147 were lost somewhere between Gates 3 and 4 of the main terminal of EDI. Despite extensive searches in the airport's washrooms, restaurants and duty-free shops, no trace was found of them. In January 2009, three survivors of the lost flight staggered out into the airport's main corridor from behind a decorative pot plant. They were clearly in shock, and violently refused to walk upon EDI's carpet, claiming it was a portal that had thrust them into a horrifying parallel universe from which only three of them had managed to escape.
Seriously, check Dublin, Edinburgh, and Isle of Man. I looked no further than that, but it was a nice addendum to The Day of Helpless Laughter.
@NBCHannibal: A fannibal just gave Hugh a "Save Will Graham" needlepoint. ALL THE AWARDS
@NBCHannibal: Hugh was just offered cookies by a Fannibal. We have no proof these are people-free.
@NBCHannibal: @Tattle_Crime is asking a question over the phone into the mic. Dedication #SDCC #Hannibal
@Tattle_Crime: Just asked Agent Graham, via Hugh Dancy, if I could break him out of jail and go on a 'roadtrip for justice".
@Tattle_Crime: Will, via Hugh, answered that "Yes, he wants to know what that will entail, he is curious." ROADTRIP TIME!
Guys, this actually happened. Skip to a little before 1:14:00. I was talking to Freddie on Thursday night; I can confirm that this is her voice.
The cherry on top, Aaron Abrams: "I'M RIGHT HERE."
You'll have to tell me if you saw anything else awesome/fun in the video (or if you were, you know, there), because I was slain after that.
@NBCHannibal: You can see more pictures from the meetup on our instagram! instagram.com/nbchannibal
@NBCHannibal: Without further ado, we present the complete [Thursday night] #Pannibal for your viewing pleasure: ow.ly/n9yBl
And then our correspondent ppyajunebug won a signed copy of the finale script! So that went well, I think. If I have time tomorrow, I'll round up a few links for the SDCC panels that were about, you know, anything else.
