Thorak: FeedTheCollapse: my explanation would be that Quinn thinks Dexter is just as crooked as he is (Dexter did exhonorate Quinn from the evidence pointing towards him killing Peter Weller) and turns a blind eye to him. That said, I do agree that Quinn was completely pointless this last season. Maybe it'll work up into something next season, but I doubt i. Even if it did add up to something, the writer have been pretty bad at trying to setup a "long game" storyline that makes it really hard to watch and wonder if the slip ups are intentional or adding up to something (i.e. almost the entirety of season 6 that required Dexter to constantly fark up so Deb could eventually catch him)The thing is, they had him set up to be angry at Deb dumping him, and with him not liking Dexter, it would have been easy to write him going after Dex to hurt Deb, especially as they'd already established he was crooked and willing to bend the rules. That was the logical conclusion if they didn't have something planned; it's what both angles led to, and it would have ended with either Dex killing him or him crossing a line and getting kicked off the force, removing him from the show either way. Keeping him around only makes sense if they intend to use him somehow in the future.Kind of like La Guerta; I hated her, I didn't like that they kept her around, but since Deb's promotion to head of Homicide, she was a decent mentor/antagonist for Deb through that transition, and then they got rid of her. This season redeemed keeping the character around, and while you thought she was an asshole, and totally self-serving, I don't think anybody really expected it to play out the way it did in the end, with Deb. She DIDN'T deserve to die; that's the entire point of that scene. That decision pays off La Guerta's survival. I'm expecting that Quinn's sticking around for the same reason.
President Merkin Muffley: Show is over for me.LaGuerta, while a total coont, did not deserve to die.
Summer Glau's Love Slave: President Merkin Muffley: Show is over for me.LaGuerta, while a total coont, did not deserve to die.LaGuerta was Empress of the coonts. She lied to everyone, used and betrayed everyone, broke all the rules while at the same time expecting everyone to love her because she was such a wonderful person.I must have replayed the part where Deb shot LaGuerta a dozen times. I just wish Deb had used an elephant gun on Maria's sorry butt; or a chainsaw.The show's about Deb now. Who knew that Jennifer Carpenter could act?
Bathia_Mapes: President Merkin Muffley: Show is over for me.LaGuerta, while a total coont, did not deserve to die. Nearly everyone else actually deserves death and they'll never get it. Dexter, Deb, Hannah, all in the clear. The show has drifted too far from it's philosophical roots.They should have Dexter jump on a shark and kill it in the season premier.Her character was killed off in the first book, plus Doakes is still alive, that is if you'd call his physical condition (badly multilated) living.
Poorlytoldjoke: "why is it that the entire show is based around a code dexter has to keep to avoid disastrous results, and it's beaten home by ghost dad every 5 minutes, but every time he breaks THE CODE nothing comes of it.""Do the writers want us to think Deb is a good cop with the mythical "cop instincts", or do they want us to think she's a moron being led around by the nose by her brother, because they can't make up their mind""Why did we spend an entire season building up the babysitters boyfriend as someone who was going to want to take revenge on Dexter, just to have him cancel Dexters creditcards and get shot"
browneye: jj325: My guess is this guarantees a Season 9. They'll run a season starting in June of this year, and then the real final season will start in September of 2014. So we'll have to wait a full year.Michael C. Hall's contract is only through Season 8 and the negotiations for that contract were not pleasant (salary dispute, talk of season 7 being cancelled, etc.) I just don't see him signing up for a 9th season.
tenpoundsofcheese: oh goodie.More violence and glorification of the actions of a brutal killer.They even got Deb to murder someone in cold blood.lets keep building this culture of violence.

SpectroBoy: FLMountainMan: The show has always been stupid. Really stupid. But for the first few seasons, it was at least entertainingly stupid. It's just a mess now.So, you don't understand it.Got it.
FLMountainMan: Take the murder-as-righteous schtick from The Saw, mix in some Matrix Revolutions-style messianic nonsense, and add in some Skinemax sex and cop shenanigans to keep it lively.
SpectroBoy: Were those things really THAT hard to understand? If so, maybe you need to stick with Nickelodeon.
TheVeryDeadIanMartin: I think the show is really about Masuka because he's the only one left who hasn't broken the law as far I can tell. And when he and Yvonne were on screen during the last season I thought I was watching a bizarre version of Chuck.[melaniemoyer.info image 265x400]
browneye: I like the show and I look forward to future episodes. The acting is perfect and the writers are excellent.Dion Fortune: Except Michael Hall is gayer than the gayest gay to ever gay a gay though. He has zero chemistry with his supposed "love interests".Don't think he's gay. But....whatever.And I loved the chemistry he had with Lumen back in season 5. They made a great killin' couple.
