Well, it’s over.
A show that began as an insightful and provocative series devolved into a melodramatic series filled with plot holes, completely unrealistic scenarios and unlovable characters.
Very disappointing finish.
Tonight’s episode was dragged out and instead of being suspenseful it was agitating.
He was a nuisance and his purpose this season was simply to pester. Poor addition.
Deb’s demise was unfair and a cop out – I believe strongly that Debra Morgan was one of the most abused and mistreated characters on television. To kill her softly like that, without honor, and amid phony flashbacks, didn’t do her once hilarious, potty-mouthed role justice.
Watching Dexter roll her out of the hospital – really? Is it all that easy?
All I can say is that she was finally put out of her horrid misery.
Angel and Joey…umm…yyyeah…awkward, unfinished goodbye. And glad to know Quinn wanted to kill Oliver Saxon/Daniel Vogel as well. Real depth he was blessed with in this final airing.
At least we know Niki had absolutely zero purpose. But I’m sad we weren’t given a silly goodbye line from Vince. Masuka, your giggle will be missed.
As for the leading man, Dexter Morgan, what happened to you?
Once filled with verve, passion and intelligence, he left us as weak, out of control and boring. If he was to develop a soul over the course of this season, it didn’t work.
Does being human mean that one is automatically over-emotional and lacking in common sense?
I don’t believe that this was the Dexter we began with and I refuse to believe that this is what he evolved into. And to lead us even for a moment to think he’s so weak as to kill himself? It was insulting to the entire series.
And BIG question – did no one notice that Harrison went missing? Everyone knows Dexter has a son…
I will remember Dexter Morgan as the witty and devious serial killer from the early seasons. A big part of him died with The Trinity Killer, and the rest of him left after Lumen said her goodbyes. I said mine then too.
It breaks my heart a little that the once powerful character is left as a
lumberjack. How creative his ending might have been, but because the
series was in the hands of writers who clearly had no direction or
heart, this series finale has done only one thing right – put me out of
