    I was looking for a post about this but didn't find one. Did you Dexter fans catch the final episode? What did you think?

    I couldn't get passed the 3rd episode of this season. It was going nowhere.

    I really liked the show the past two years. But I didn't like the fact that Deb had a stroke and was declared brain dead, but it was interesting how Dexter showed his true love for his sister by doing what he did best - ending a life. Very poignant in a crazy sort of way.
    But Dexter, a lumberjack? That was a stretch. He was kind of glum at the end, and very miserable. His just desserts? Maybe.

    I loved the series, up until this season. They ran out of story and just like, made it up as they went. Take Masuka's kid... wtf was she there for?

    Not the best serie Finale in my opinion.
    Dexter or his sister should have live happy.

    i've been a die hard fan during all the seasons, and i hate to say but they really let it slide this season.. so many distractions, story lines that didnt go anywhere and didn't need to be there.. then wrapping things up too quickly and neatly for the sake of ending it.. the last 10 minutes were totally dramatic and powerful, but all the bullshit leading up to it was pretty weak..

    Worst final season ever! Masuka's daughter was a go nowhere distraction. The whole brain surgeon thing started out good but then really fizzled once we knew who it was.
    I was pissed with the ending, total bull shit. I just don't think it fits the character who spent the whole season developing his humanity, loosing the "dark passenger" (no longer having the visions of harry) and supposedly finding true love in another killer. Do I understand the whole being worried about leading to Hannah's and Harrison's death, absolutely but wasn't that why we saw him gain humanity?!

    My understanding of the ending is that he faked his death so that Hannah and Harrison will never look for him, how he even survived is a big plot hole... but the quick answer is that he's "supernatural". Lame, I would really have liked to see him united with his son and walk into the sunset for a normal life.

    I wonder what this talented (and, to my eyes, attractive) actor will do next icon_question.gif

    I was happy with the finale right up until the final scene, which pretty much unmade everything good about it.

    What a waste!
    The whole season was such a let down, except 1 or 2 episodes.
    I wish this season never happened.

    On a different note, if you haven't watched Hannibal yet, give it a try. I really liked the first season.

    I would have had Dexter end up down in Argentina with Hannah and Harrison. That would have been a much better ending, IMO. I would have done it in a similar fashion to the way the writers had Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall get reunited in a romantic pub at the end of the story in the classic great film, Dark Passage.

    We liked the series finale much better than we liked the last season overall. Still very compelling and enjoyable for us, but the series lost some of the dichotomy and paradoxical aspects of his existence and nature. The finale, however, in an unpleasantly rushed way, brought that to bear. That was welcome to us, but not how we'd have done it. (Then again, nobody is banging down our door to write or direct any television series or movies! icon_sad.gif )

    As to Lumberjack Dexter in the final scene.... Michael C. Hall is way too cute for that scruffy look. NOT TO TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM HOT BEARDED SCRUFFY MEN. They're HOT when they're H O T. But Michael C. Hall is far too pretty for that. Remember David in Six Feet Under and the way Keith would throw him against the wall and have his way with him? Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    Chuck's summation: It wasn't Six Feet Under, and it sure as hell wasn't Newhart!

    I agree. It wasn't as dark as most Dexter episodes. But I did find Deb dying and how she died and how he buried etc. quite powerful and symbolic. I do think tho it's good that they didn't kill him off. At the very last scene you realize he will suffer for his entire life for being monster (which I find is quite realistic) and him looking at the camera kinda makes u wonder if he's still a killer.

    I agree...Deb's death was ├╝ber powerful and I thought it fit the finale...just the reveal that his big sacrifice wasn't really that big a sacrifice left all that he did prior to that ring very hollow in the last scene. I thought we were supposed to get (from Harry's final appearance, at least) that Dexter had evolved beyond his desire to kill on some level. It seemed more like a cheap ploy to keep him available for an appearance in the potential spin-off they're talking about (with Hannah, perhaps?) than an effective end to his story. I also thought him dying with Deb would have been a perfect end given their messed up relationship. Oh well. There's always 'Spartacus' for satisfying finales.

    Very disappointed.

    In my mind, Deb was more a main character than dexter was, since she grew/changed/evolved much more over the course of the series than dexter did. So to just end her like that, without any sense of real conclusion on her character felt cheap to me. If she was going to die, I would rather it be in battle or at least more meaningful in some way. The killing of brain surgeon, in the cell, just seemed totally ridiculous as well.

    The last season in general was frustrating. Instead of focusing on the main characters of the show, they kinda pushed them to the side and gave them stupid side stories that went nowhere (Masuka's daughter, quinns promotion....). We've spent years with these people. Instead they focused all the time on Dexter, Hannah, Vogel, Zach, and killed them off. Dont introduce new people, tie up the ones we've been growing with all these years.

    I think the season had a lot of potential at the beginning, with Deb hating/tryingtokill Dexter. It could have come to a big face off between them somehow, Deb righting the wrong she made before. Instead, it just kinda fizzled out and went nowhere. Just like every other story in the season.

    C'mon we live in an age when scripts don't have happy endings. Unfortunately.
