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.

The most amazing thing on the Dexter finale?

The revelation that in Miami, you can take you boat all the way up to a hospital's entrance. That's pretty damn cool.

Shrugging Atlas: CNN has basically become People magazine.  It's almost entirely focused on news about celebrities or entertainment (with the occasional missing white girl story thrown in) with the 'articles' being nothing but comments from the Twitter feeds of celebrities.  And they've become so lazy they just screenshot the twitter comment and paste it into the article.



I though "Journalism" jumped the shark when they began integrating social media, but then I remembered that journalism is just gossip anyway. I cannot care anymore. I really can't.

Stupid is as stupid does.
People came and got what they wanted and expected every week, what with blood and murder and beverly hillbilly subtleties, then they expect ART at the end?

That's as deep as it goes for you, Dexter fans.
There is no redemption, just endless boorish mayhem until you die.
There is no movie ending.
