Wow, it's hard to see how they can go even one more season, let alone two. Deb already busted him, so that plot point is done. For the last couple seasons he's been going through the motions in the serial killing thing. Maybe if Yvonne LastnameIhavenoideahowtospell gets naked it would help I guess.

It would be fun to see a side story of the CIA putting "bad people" in Dexter's path for him to "take care of".

"I was on a bus and it was the middle of the night. And I had a box of crackers and a can of Easy Cheese. But it was the middle of the night, so I could not see. I could not see how much Easy Cheese I was applying to each cracker. So each bite into the cracker was a surprise as to how much Easy Cheese I had applied. Which makes me believe they should have a glow in the dark version of Easy Cheese. It's not like the product has any integrity to begin with. If you buy a room temperature cheese that you squeeze out of a can, you probably won't get mad if it glows in the dark too." - Mitch Hedberg

Sadly, I think Dexter is in a worse situation than they would be if they had jumped the shark - they're in a steady decline with no clear, teachable moment to point to where it began. I only hope they have the decency to end it before it becomes unwatchable rubbish. But if it's making them money, they'll provbably keep making it long after it becomes utter garbage - just look at Weeds

The only way I will watch Season 9 is if 1. more hot female nudity 2. more Deb nudity.

Or if I have to, you know, watch it for work.

Please just let it die. Season seven was painful to get through. It had moments of greatness, but even the occasional speck of light couldn't counter the mass of dreary blah that made up the season, and it is obvious that the writers are struggling to keep moving the story forward. The large number of flashbacks fillers in the last few episodes were a clear testament of this. Time to end it all.

Dexter's writers use surveillance camera footage whenever they want it to make plot twists.

Season 9 arc: Ray Romano plays an FBI profiler investigating the serial killer phenomenon in Miami. It's the perfect disguise for a serial killer who knows what to do to not get caught. Dexter can't match wits with him, and Debra falls for him. SPOILER: right before Ray kills Dexter with his sister watching, he says "I'M SAHRY DEBRA"

Dexter is getting hard to watch after Breaking Bad. On BB, the writers and producers pay so much attention to detail it's ridiculous wherein only the biggest nerds cant suspend their disbelief. Dexter's writers have gotten really lazy and Dexter isnt as careful and methodical with his kills and it becomes hard to believe that no one is onto the evidence tampering or Dexter's omission of data in his reports. Are there really no set work hours? It seems like Dexter can just come and go to work as he pleases. That grinds me the most. That along with the fact that they had to write the nanny in to free up Dexter. He never spends anytime with Harrison, yet Harrison asks about Hannah. Good season, not great like season 4.
 
2013-01-02 12:00:28 PM
Dexter is amazing, in that it has the absolute WORST "B" storylines of any major series, and still picks up viewers. Once Dexter himself leaves the frame, what comes next is almost certainly forgettable and irrelevant.
 
2013-01-02 12:06:02 PM
I love me some Dexter as much as the next person: But for the love of GOD it can't continue past the 8th season - it shouldn't have gotten two more, but I digress.

It's just stretched into so much farce - Dexter having conversations about his activities visiting inmates in jail - the numerous times he's made calls from his cell phone without regard to who he's calling, etc. The acting is great, and I have MAD love for MCH - but the story telling is getting so sloppy it's just not fun to watch any more.

Dexter - please see Sopranos - it's OK to end at the top - for reals.

Hell, Go 11 seasons:

Season 8: Dexter gets executed.
Season 9: Dexter returns from the grave as an undead vigilante who wears a hockey mask and can't be killed.
Season 10: Dexter's immortality put to the test as his head is removed from his body which is blended into a soup and poured into Bay Harbor. Closing scene of the finale is just a slow fade out of his pickled decapitated head in a jar on a table with a large butcher knife sitting in front of it. Screen goes black...then flashes back to the jar to show Dexter's eyes open.
Season 11: Dexter's re-animated head is sewn onto a cyborg body and he is shot into space to do battle with a new technical monstrosity created by the US government: TRINITYBOT.

I'd like for Quinn to get his own spin-off show where he does every thing that a cop is definitely not supposed to do, somehow never getting in trouble but also never solving any cases or catching anyone, banging all the female suspects and witnesses and either accidentally or intentionally killing the male ones, constantly misplacing his gun and/or badge, or both, falling asleep during interrogations, in a drunken daze the entire time. And every episode his well meaning partner can say something like "you gotta straighten out man, I can only cover for you so long" but nothing ever happens. Maybe he could somehow cause the death of his partner at the end of every season and just keep getting new ones. It could be called "Worst Detective" and it would have a laugh track.

I still enjoy Dexter a lot. Season 6 was a low point but I thought Season 7 was better. That being said, they need to end it before they ruin it.

MCH has been eager to move on to other projects and there were apparently some intense negotiations required to get him to commit to Season 7 and 8, with one of the stipulations being that 8 would be the last season for sure. This article does nothing to suggest that Season 8 will not be last either, only pointing out that Season 7 had the highest ratings yet. There's no new developments to speak of, just a lazy writer speculating about a topic that has been debated for years (should a popular show go out on top or stick around until nobody cares anymore?)

This season was definitely better than the last two, but dear lord does it need to end. There just isn't a reasonable explanation- even within the show's own rules- for why Dexter hasn't been put in jail at least once. It's textbook lazy writing. It's sort of like HIMYM for me in that I've invested too much time to stop watching altogether, but it's a shadow of what it used to be*.

*With the exception of Ray and Yvonne from this year- great actors and great characters that the writers ultimately stumbled with.

in season 7, Dexter explained through internal monologue that he used to have to fake human emotions, but they have been made real by the experience of fatherhood, i.e. seeing his son once a day on his way to or from the beach or pool with his lithe and presumably flexible nanny, who is always taking Harrison to either the beach or pool because this allows her to spend the majority of her on-screen time in a bikini.

In season 8, Harrison will be played by one of those yellow plastic child-shaped cutouts that go in school crosswalks.
 
2013-01-02 01:10:03 PM
I do wish Dexter and Quinn wouldn't wear the same shirts. They have the same build and same basic haircut, but when they're playing "can I borrow the pink shirt", things get kind of quirky from afar. You expect it to be Dexter but, ugh, Quinn or vice versa. And that blue striped one.
 
2013-01-02 01:11:09 PM
Dexter was great when he was hunting, killing, or masking because he remained a psychopath who was the protagonist only as long as he killed villains, because his intention was not to be a vigilante but sate a lust without being hunted himself. Gradually, he has garnered a life and therefore reasons which have spiraled out of control but are still grounded in something intelligible to the rest of us which is not losing his family. The kills this season are not motivated by anything somewhat grotesque but rather revenge, family, love, self-defense, and self-preservation. Dexter no longer has to make himself appear to be concerned about the welfare of others because he actually is. As well, the code has gone from choosing targets to avoid investigation to a concern over innocence for the sake of innocence.

Season eight needs to be something of a reboot, following the same story arc from season seven but cutting the fatherly, brotherly, vigilante Dexter out. Season seven was dramatically better than the last two, however, so still looking forward to the next, which is why the next will probably have lower quality, anyway.

The problem with Dexter is it has nudity, but it is always background nudity, some low class stripper with implants dancing in the background as scenery. What it really needs is some Game of Thrones style on camera semi main cast nudity, then it would be baller.

There need to be less sub plots next season. The past couple seasons have had Dexter get involved in so many sub plots for killing people that the story basically become how he deals with life with all these sub plots. It was ok for one season, but now every season is hectic and you would think Dexter would learn to tone things down.

If they go back early season format where there is one very definite killer or story, it should do fine. Obviously, they will have to resolve what happens in the long term for Dexter since this is the final season and no one likes open ended endings. He'll either die, kill Deb and run away with that random chick from last season, sent to jail, or hook up with Deb and live happily ever after.
 
2013-01-02 01:30:07 PM
I'd like to go into Season 8 knowing things will wrap up, but after some big series finale disappointments in the past (Lost, X-Files, Sopranos) I'm wary of what will happen.  Will the writers decide to let Dexter live happily ever after?  Will Deb and Dexter both go down?  Was Season 7 all a dream?  My money is on Lumen coming back to take care of the Hannah issue, Deb and Quinn hooking up, and the four of them (Dex/Lumen/Deb/Quinn) ending up in Argentina raising Harrison.

Season 8 should be the last.  It should deal with the fallout of Deb becoming a murderer and the void that Laguerta's death leaves at Miami Metro.  It should also further deal with Dexter's realization that he's become "human", i.e. loving his son, caring more about the victims of the murderers he kills, his life being "real" to him now, falling in love, etc. and the impact that all of this is having on his killing impulse.

Also Michael C Hall wants and should move on.  He's been in two long-running series back-to-back:  Six Feet Under (4 years) and Dexter (soon to be 8 years).  That's twelve years.  He was thirty years old when he started Six Feet Under and he'll be forty-two when the 8th season of Dexter ends.  Time to move on.
 
2013-01-02 01:45:16 PM
Here is how it should end. Dexter holding Harrison goes into a liquor store to buy some wine. A robber comes in and holds up the liquor store and locks the front door. Something goes wrong and the clerk and Dexter get killed and the robber flees out the back. Harrison sits crying in a pool of his fathers blood for hours until someone notices blood seeping from the front door of the locked liquor store and calls the cops. Cops come in and see Harrison pick him up and call Debra Morigan to the scene. Dexter's death is in all the papers and they all say the how he was a pilar of the community, a good guy, good father. Debra raises Harrison and it ends with a flash forward twenty years to Harrison graduating from the police academy with Debra in the audience watching him graduate.
 
2013-01-02 01:50:47 PM
Deb calling about La Guerta's location the night she was murdered is going to come around and bite her in the ass next season. And ratings trumps all. Besides, the only way they wouldn't be able to keep the story going is if the writers were hacks that couldn't think beyond the original premise of the series.

2013-01-02 02:03:09 PM
For me there were two key moments that ruined the show for me. The first was killing of Doakes, especially the way he was killed. He was the show's most interesting character and the only one with a real eye on dexter. He was effectively the antagonist without ever really being able to fully explore that. His death alone wasn't so bad, it was the introduction of Quinn after in exactly the same role as Doakes.

The good, tough ass cop who was immediately suspicious of Dexter. Of course his role changed over the next few seasons to move away from that, but it helped to bring my attention to the second key moment: The moment I realized that each season was following the same pattern as the one before. This happened at about the first episode of season 4. Everyone loved this season. I hated it. I hated it because it was the same season we'd already watched 3 times before. The first season was great, and the second one was pretty good as well (Doakes' death notwithstanding). The third wasn't as good but at this point we're invested in the characters, and the role played by Jimmy Smits was great, and intense enough to grab me. But by season four I recognized the pattern, and all drama, tension and interest in the show immediately drained from me. Here's the pattern:

1) Dexter is sad because he has a dark passenger that he doesn't understand and no one understands him because of it
2) Each season introduces a new 'big bad'
3) Dexter gets, or tries to get close to the big bad to learn from them how they deal with their own 'dark passenger'
4) Dexter finds he can't and kills them at the end of the last episode of the season.
5) (optional) there may be some collateral damage on the way.

For me this removed the tension. In season four, I was never worried that the Trinity killer would harm Dexter, or that Dexter would kill Trinity. Because it wasn't the last episode yet!

By having a big bad in each season, we know how each season is going to play out. This made me see the fourth season as predictable. I even predicted Rita would die at the end (although I had thought that maybe Dexter would kill her himself). Deb should have discovered he was a killer at the end of season four, and then seasons 5 and 6 should have been the last two, with an overaching storyline. The one-season, one-badguy pattern really needs to go.

DemoKnite: On BB, the writers and producers pay so much attention to detail it's ridiculous wherein only the biggest nerds cant suspend their disbelief


True Story: I found Breaking Bad so ridiculously tiresome because I cannot suspend my disbelief that there are human beings who might act like anyone on that show acts. Most of the characters are paper-thin caricatures that exist to make Malcolm's dad look good. I do not understand why or how anyone could like it.

Also, Dexter was actually good until maybe the end of season 2 and acceptable but somewhat ridiculous until the end of whatever season had John Lithgow.
 
2013-01-02 02:09:58 PM
I personally hope in the middle of this next (final) season, Dexter comes forth with the truth about everything, and the rest of the season shows the utter shock and disbelief of the department and those who were close to Dexter. I think it would be freaking epic.

The producers quit following Jeff Lindsay's books and went out on their own path after the first season. Season 2 had similarities to book 2, Dearly Devoted Dexter, but since then the stories don't track at all. For instance, Laguerta was killed off early on and Doakes is still alive. Also, Quinn doesn't exist in the books and Deb has known about Dexter's hobby for quite some time.

I hear ya, but this season did actually break that mold and throw some twists our way.

*spoilers*

I personally expected Louis to be the "big bad" in kind of the same vein as the Ice Truck Killer (cat-and-mouse)... but Issak disposed of him. Then we thought Isaak would be the big bad... until he starts working with Dexter as quasi-equals. So then, it's gotta be Isaak's killer, right? Nope, Quinn takes care of him. The Phantom Arsonist? Not developed as a character and quickly done away with. That leaves Hannah... who survives. And you can't really consider LaGuerta the big bad, even if she was the final kill.

The certainly changed it up, which was probably necessary after Deb discovered his secret.

/oh, and his Dark Passenger is dead too, which could almost be the metaphorical "big bad" kill... now Dexter doesn't even need to follow The Code.
 
2013-01-02 02:42:51 PM
There are a few things that have killed the show for me:

1) One of the reasons I liked this show at the beginning was because as outlandish as the premise was, it was also believable because of how diligent Dexter was to maintain certain rules to keep from getting caught. These rules have completely been shredded, especially after showrunner changed after season 4. In season 3 Dexter refused to kill a person with Jimmy Smitts simply because someone else who knew JS was in the same building. Fast forward to now..... yeah all that's out the window.

2) Rita's Kids: The storyline to get rid of them is completely unbelievable, especially after he made such a huge effort to stay in their lives in season 2 when he and Rita broke up.

3) The silliness of the side stories and complete gullibility of all supporting characters. Especially that 23 yr old Nanny that seems to never give a shiat that her employer keeps her working late/24 hours constantly (preventing her from having a life of her own) and mysteriously disappears all the time. Her character is a massive plot crutch and is totally unbelievable.

4) The total irredeemability of Deb by the end of this last season.

I kind of only half-watched this season while my wife did. I would usually watch while doing something else. My interest had just fallen off. I did appreciate that this season went off the pattern a little bit, but by now it was just too late for my tastes. I think if this season had been in place of season 4, it would have been rejuvenating. YMMV of course.

2013-01-02 03:08:46 PM
Quinn's story this season was so hilariously bad that it went back around to good and became the only thing I really even liked.

He's off by himself away from the rest of the cast making terrible decisions, then he shoots a guy and covers it up terribly (which of course works completely because Miami Metro has terrible detectives), his stripper girlfriend dies on the way back to her home planet (or whatever), and next time we see him he's staring vacantly off into space at An-hell's New Year's party. He's become more anorexic than Debra and his hair will probably get a "special guest star" credit next season.
 
2013-01-02 03:16:58 PM
I'd actually like there to be one more "big bad"...

Have Dexter and Debra get out of this LaGuerta jam they've gotten themselves into.

Have whatever time passes, pass.

Then have them go after/hunt down this new terrifying serial killer/terrorist type.

Have it be real good, lots of spooky/secret interactions...cat and mouse coming from both sides.

But then...at the very end...
HAVE THE NEW BIG BAD KILL DEXTER AND DEBRA TOGETHER.
Make Dexter watch Debra die...
Then have the big bad kill Dexter.

That would be an awesome end and a telling message, murdrers don't live happily ever after, yadayadayada.

I've seen the show only fleetingly after season 4. Season 1 was okay. Season 2 was actually pretty good, but mostly because of Lila. Season 3 sucked horrible. Season 4 was spectacular. I watched the first 4 episodes of Season 5 and did not give a shiat. I watched a few episodes of Season 6, and with the exception of Edward James Olmos, that sucked, too. I have no reason to go much further with the show.

3825968: The only way I will watch Season 9 is if 1. more hot female nudity 2. more Deb nudity.

Or if I have to, you know, watch it for work.


I am not knocking your desires as everyone has different opinions but that girl has always been kinda gross to me. Even in White Chicks she just scared the hell out of me especially in her semi-nude scene.

Hoboclown: Quinn's story this season was so hilariously bad that it went back around to good and became the only thing I really even liked.

He's off by himself away from the rest of the cast making terrible decisions, then he shoots a guy and covers it up terribly (which of course works completely because Miami Metro has terrible detectives), his stripper girlfriend dies on the way back to her home planet (or whatever), and next time we see him he's staring vacantly off into space at An-hell's New Year's party. He's become more anorexic than Debra and his hair will probably get a "special guest star" credit next season.


I was distracted by just how laughably bad Quinn's role, decisions, plot lines (whatever you want to call it) morphed into this season. That and having Dexter making really poor personal decisions that go against his well-formed code kind of signaled an end for me.

Bottom line - I'd be happy to have it end next year. But am hoping that they'll end it well - I almost like the idea of Dexter getting cornered and skipping town (like Hannibal Lecter) They probably won't do that because of his scripted love for his kid (booo!)
 
2013-01-02 03:52:44 PM

lasercannon: Here is how it should end. Dexter holding Harrison goes into a liquor store to buy some wine. A robber comes in and holds up the liquor store and locks the front door. Something goes wrong and the clerk and Dexter get killed and the robber flees out the back. Harrison sits crying in a pool of his fathers blood for hours until someone notices blood seeping from the front door of the locked liquor store and calls the cops. Cops come in and see Harrison pick him up and call Debra Morigan to the scene. Dexter's death is in all the papers and they all say the how he was a pilar of the community, a good guy, good father. Debra raises Harrison and it ends with a flash forward twenty years to Harrison graduating from the police academy with Debra in the audience watching him graduate.


^^This^^
 
2013-01-02 04:04:36 PM
It needs to end with Dexter finding out that all of the cops are doing the same thing he is, but for other types of crimes. Masuka is raping rapists, Quinn is stealing from burglars, and Batista is pissing in the food of restaurant owners who get away with health violations. There would be a big scene where they all end up walking into the same house at the same time to kill/rape/rob/crap-onto-the-sushi of a guy who stole the purse of his secretary, after having sex with her dead body, which had choked on a cockroach, that he had put in her salad. They could all look at each other, have a big "You too? Me too!" moment, and realize the music was actually coming from inside the frakking ship!

Yeah. He gets more and more gaunt every season. It's actually distracting when he's on screen. Too much nose candy or is it his lack of appetite when he reads the nonsense his character is up to in the scripts? Either way, I hope he's alright. He's a pretty decent actor.

I think that book was only written because Lindsay needed to complete his contract with his publisher. With the success of the show, he got a new contract and the later books dropped the super natural crizap.

The show is awesome but in this last season, it wasn't just the fact that Dexter took too many liberties and was way careless, it was that the writers forcing the LeGuerta character into a role that that character isn't realistically able to assume.
 
2013-01-02 06:13:20 PM
The producers want it to end, the actors want it to end, the story is essentially being written to end at season 8.

While I'm sure people want to roll in the dough in the network, it's not gonna happen.

/Course, I said the same thing about HIMYM and... well... they're returning for a season 9 I never thought in a million years would happen.

ActionJoe: There need to be less sub plots next season. The past couple seasons have had Dexter get involved in so many sub plots for killing people that the story basically become how he deals with life with all these sub plots. It was ok for one season, but now every season is hectic and you would think Dexter would learn to tone things down.


I was concerned about the subplots this season. To its credit, i think the show juggled the subplots rather well... until the Sirko plot ended. The last 3 episodes or so just felt out of place now that a very (unintentinally?) dominating storyline ended.

Girl On Couch: I was distracted by just how laughably bad Quinn's role, decisions, plot lines (whatever you want to call it) morphed into this season.


Quinn was easily the worst part of this past season. I think he may play a role next season as he used to suspect Dexter and I'm betting Laguerta's death may cause him to re-evaluate those suspicions, but this season felt like they really didn't know what to do with Quinn.

This.

So whenever you feel compelled to complain about season six or whatever other seasons of Dexter, just remember it could have been a helleva lot worse if the writers had continued to follow the books after the first season.

I think it fit Laguerta well, but much like Quinn, she's technically in the right, but they just made her character pointless and generally unlikable. Another Lundy-like character would've been better in that role.

I only read the first book. Even though it's fairly close to the first season's storyline, I found Dexter as a character extremely unlikable. I haven't read the other books, but they sound pretty terrible to the point where I don't really get how people like the books.

True Story: I found Breaking Bad so ridiculously tiresome because I cannot suspend my disbelief that there are human beings who might act like anyone on that show acts. Most of the characters are paper-thin caricatures that exist to make Malcolm's dad look good. I do not understand why or how anyone could like it.

Also, Dexter was actually good until maybe the end of season 2 and acceptable but somewhat ridiculous until the end of whatever season had John Lithgow.

Meh. To each his own.
What are you going to watch now that Jersey Shore is done? Reruns of AI and DWTS?
Maybe this season of Real Housewives of wherever will keep you from hari kari.


I feel the same way about Dexter. It started wearing thin. I'm about to start on season seven but I don't have high hopes.

Basically, you look like an ass for accusing people of liking ridiculously horrible shows because they don't like the ones you like.
 
2013-01-02 07:17:55 PM
I started watching the show in September, and was completely caught up by the time season seven started. Yeah, there were days where I could have watched up to 5 episodes. I think every season had its flaws (though I think season one was pretty flawless) and I liked this past season better than the previous two.

I was pretty interested in La Guerda's hunt for the bay harbor butcher. The subplots were bordering silly, and I didn't care for the relationship Dexter was in, but the pursuit of Dexter kept me around and interested in season eight.

I hope it ends well.
 
2013-01-02 08:07:39 PM
Too many comments for me to read right now, but ... and it's a big butt

I think season 4 was the best, and season 2 the worst so far. This show isn't great cinema, but it's entertaining none the less. Last season was good, the finale being amazing. The current season, I liked if only because one of my hobbies is orchids and it's rare to see so many plants, orchids featured in a show like this.

I'm looking forward to the ongoing story. I think fun and interesting things are in order now that Debra is more involved in the whole killing thing. Yes, there's plenty of opportunity to fark things up entirely, there's also soooooo much potential moving forward.

This show has grown from "meh" to "cool" for me since season 4. Now I can't wait to see what they do with the story. While it's not my favorite show ever, I really do enjoy it (except that the acting is often cheesy and the story is a bit too predictable). I mean, when Debra suddenly is featured drinking water while one of the main characters is known for poisoning her victims --- FAR TOO PREDICTABLE.

The season finales are usually really, really interesting. That's all I can say.

They are slight caricatures, just like every other show on TV thats not "The Wire". Ive known straight laced guys that sold drugs on the side (not cartel style like Walter). Over bearing yet supportive wives (Skyler), high school burn outs (Jesse), jock cops (Hank), Jewish attorneys (Saul). It's not all that unbelievable. Way more believable than Dexter which from the beginning was stylized and a bit cartoonish.

MrHappyRotter: season 2 the worst so far.


Season 2? really? That's easily one of the best. I don't think season 5 and 6 are nearly as bad as some have made them out to be, but they were fairly subpar coming off of the great season 4.
 
2013-01-02 09:01:35 PM
They have to end it at season 8. LaGuerta is gone. Angel Bautista downgraded to bit player and retired. Masuka is literally a joke. Doakes was gone 5 seasons ago. Rita's yin to Dexter's yang could not be replaced with Deb, or whatever hot hoe is featured that season. Quinn has been wholly unnecessary for many seasons. Dexter is increasingly sloppy.

Dexter has to die, and it should be in front of his son. Or in front of the world, in an electric chair, to the sound of real cheers, as a kind of throwback to season 1.

You give the show waaaaay too much credit to suggest it's about anything other than, "How will Dexter get away this time?" It has no deeper themes, meanings, or purpose. The few times the show has attempted to be something more than it is have come across as clumsy and ham-fisted. The idea that the show is some nuanced character study about a troubled man ... you just give it way too much credit.

This is how the show should end:

Dexter gets loaded, but runs out of booze. He takes Harrison with him to the liquor store to refuel. Dexter walks up to the counter and realizes he forgot his wallet. Instead of money, Dexter offers Harrison as payment. The clerk and Dexter get in an argument about whether small children are a valid form of payment or not.

Stressed, Dexter asks the clerk to watch Harrison for a moment while he steps outside for a smoke. The clerk, distracted by the child, doesn't notice Dexter grab a bottle of vodka on his way out. After 30 minutes Dexter doesn't return so the clerk phones the police. The police show up about an hour later because it's a bad neighborhood so response time isn't their top priority.

Shortly after the police arrive Dexter stumbles in to reclaim Harrison. The police realize who Dexter is and phone Deb to come over ASAP. The police and Dexter have an argument about whether small children are a valid form of payment or not. There is a scuffle and Dexter grabs Harrison and runs out into the night.

Exhausted and nearly blacked-out, Dexter takes a breather with Harrison in the middle of a nearby highway. Meanwhile, Deb is racing down the very same highway to come to her brother's rescue. Deb nears the liquor store doing 80+ MPH. However, in her haste she doesn't notice the two figures in the road until it's too late.

I started watching with the finale of season 6, and I must say it's been pretty entertaining. I do agree that it shouldn't go past season 8, though - it looks like they're definitely leading up to an end, and making it too drawn out would ruin the suspense.

Also, John Lithgow was one of the bad guys? Now I've definitely gotta watch the back episodes.

Indeed, and in the books Cody has his own Dark Passenger, as does Astor to a certain degree. Cody has already showed signs of being a budding serial killer (killing animals, for example) and Dexter is teaching them the Code of Harry (how to act normal).

Oh, and Brian Moser is still very much alive in the books, as is Rita.

That's the thing, I'm sure the show to some extent wants to be an exploration of Dexter's evolution, but it never really manages the trick and never really commits itself to going down that road. It has never managed to move past villain-of-the-season/will-he-get-caught, and even when they DO do something bold to advance the character -- say, killing Rita -- they get weak knees and don't commit. Taking away her kids, giving Harrison a nanny, and going back to the old routine, all this was just the show refusing to stray too far from formula. At best he has advanced from a guy who can't express emotions to a guy who loves his sister and a girlfriend or two, but that was to be expected. As the character has gotten popular, you figure they'll make him a little softer/more sympathetic.

The growth, though, hasn't been genuine, in my opinion. While the show could have been a character study, it never really gets there. That's why I'm of the opinion that saying it is gives it too much credit.

Dexter's evolution hasn't been occurring in a straight line. He's regressed, backslid, etc. But I completely disagree that the show never manages to explore Dexter evolution. I just got through watching an episode in Season 3 called Easy As Pie where Dexter's friend Camilla, who is slowly dying of cancer, asks him to assist in her suicide - a request that Dexter grants. But not like a ruthless serial killer who stabs his victims, but with the gentleness and poignancy of someone who wants to end a friend's agony (he feeds her key lime pie laced with sodium pentathlon)..

So I believe the show has done a pretty good job of showing Dexter's evolution. However although I know that falling in love with Hannah this past season was suppose to be a huge step in that evolution (It's generally accepted that Sociopaths can't love), I never could warm up to that relationship, specifically because I just couldn't stand Hannah.

I actually thought the Hannah plot was where they were going to go in season 6 following the Lumen plot of season 5, so i thought the Hannah subplot generally worked; though I'm not sure if that subplot was resolved or will be touched upon next season.

from what I can tell from some other sites, the rumors have to do with Scott Buck stating that it's not official that Dexter will end in Season 8. They're writing it as though the show is ending, but Showtime may demand more episodes in lieu of high ratings.

Tommy Moo: Not going to read TFA or TFT. Just want to send a giant FARK YOU to subby and the mod who greenlit this massive spoiler headline. You basically just announced to everyone that Dexter dies in season 8, jackasses.


We're speculating, nothing more. It's very unlikely that any of us have access to season 8's script, if it even exists yet, so how could we be spoiling anything?
