“False Prophets” brings Cullen and Durant together in Salt Lake City to discuss the railroad with President Grant, who somehow manages to bring every topic back around to, “You know, that reminds me of the time I completely kicked Johnny Reb’s treasonous backside…” Elsewhere, the Swede puts his anti-Mormon machinations into effect.

Cam and M-Chuck land on a district attorney’s radar in “A Time to Punch,” while a neighbor and his unruly pooch land on Uncle Julius’s doody list.
SERIES FINALE, 10pm, NBC
Will orchestrates a plan to nab Dolarhyde in “The Wrath of the Lamb,” and Hannibal is right at the center of it (though, sadly, not sporting a blonde wig and screaming “WHERE IS MY DRAGON?!”). But even as Bedelia worries that the endgame may endanger everyone around him, Will realizes that he must confront his most formidable fears. (NOTE: According to Noel Kirkpatrick, you'll want to watch all the way through the end credits. I trust Noel on this stuff, and you should too.)
