bestie1: An ending with Vogel being the real source of Dexter'ss problems would have been satisfying but it would have left open a big plot hole around Dexter's brother the ice cream truck killer
jj325: For what it's worth, I would be open to watching a series where Hannah is a fugitive and raising Harrison. I think I'm in the minority, but I liked the Hannah character a lot more this season than I did previously.

FeedTheCollapse: jj325: I think I'm in the minority, but I liked the Hannah character a lot more this season than I did previously.I liked her last season, though I thought her story was a bit underplayed by the writers. I think they completely botched her reintroduction this season though. I'm not really sure I saw the point in temporarily making her disappear.
yukichigai: ShadowKamui: I think one of the failed sub plots this season was that Dexter wasn't actually a psycho and Vogel screwed him up with the code.As someone else posted in another thread, if they had actually taken that plot point and run with it the ending could have been glorious. Vogel's misunderstanding of Dexter stems from her projecting the condition of her dead-she-thought son Saxon onto most of the possible psychopaths she meets. That wouldn't have just explained Dexter and how he could be "healed by love" (blegh), but why there were so many serial killers in Miami: it's Vogel misdiagnosing people other than Dexter.Instead of Saxon being the big bad, it should have been Vogel. The series finale could have been Dex realizing that Vogel has been warping children into pseudo-psychopaths like him for years... and realizing that all the kills he's done, Harry's suicide, making Deb shoot LaGuerta, and quite a few other things NEVER would have happened if Harry had just gone to a competent psychologist rather than one still obsessed with the apparent suicide of her psychopath son. His last kill could have been Vogel, and the pictures in the room all of the previous big bad serial killers, including Brian Moser. Hell, imagine that drama, Dexter standing over Vogel screaming, "YOU MADE ME! YOU MADE. ME KILL. MY OWN BROTHER."The rest could have happened: Deb dying, Masouka's daughter and her going nowhere, Quinn and the rest of Miami Metro continuing to be dumb about the serial killer working in their department. Even the lumberjacking could have happened, only now it would make sense since Dexter realizes he isn't truly a psychopath and doesn't need to spend the rest of his life with a serial killer. That finale would have been amazing.
