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.

I kind of agree. My problem is that much like Laguerta, I think that even if Quinn will eventually be put to use, it will be so long after being pointless that his use, or more specifically his inevitable death, will be more annoying than exciting. Had Lundy lived, I would've enjoyed seeing him chase Dexter, but Laguerta stuck around way too long and became unlikable to the point where even though she's innocent, I can't say that I really miss her.
