They 'butchered' the finale so hard man , episode 1to9 were fantastic, but episode 10 was a rush to the finish line. i was hoping there was more to it, like kill his GF blame angel batista and run away with his son of what ever not this , this fell flat on its face, insane how wild they couldn't land yet another finale after a decade of thinking about it

@Krav - Dexter is insane, he is not evil, killing his girlfriend and blame Batista is not something he would do.
One of the main problems with seasons 5-8 is how out of character he acts, for example, trying to kill Laguerta.
Remember, Dexter wasnt able to kill Doakes because he didnt fit the code.

@Krav - you’re wrong on so many levels… kill Angela and blame it on Bautista? Lmao

Dexter fans doing mental gymnastics to have Dexter survive in an alternate reality… Dex is dead and it was for the best narratively speaking. Was the finale perfect? Nope. Did I wish an extra 30 minutes was added? Absolutely - but they did executed his death at the hands of Harrison well.

@TheHumanSpider2 - bingo!

I understand that Dexter had to die, it was inevitable, but the way the whole prison break and subsequent death played out felt rushed and weak. The prison break felt very uncharacteristic to me.

Rest of the season was top tier tho.

I loved it. Way better than the shit finale from season 8.
Mrcool210 - 1/10/2022, 11:23 AM
I'll say this, this episode in some ways is far worse than the previous attempt at an ending. Dexter acts completely out of character, it was rushed and insanely anti climactic, plus Angela apparently has access to the script cause the evidence she has against dexter is circumstancal at best. However the ending scene itself with Harrison and Dexter is done Way better and the idea is an interesting one. Just like last time.

Season 8s ending and this ending both have the same problem. A good idea executed badly. Season 8s ending didn't work because it's an ending that came out of left field although the idea that dexter after finally gaining the ability to care about people and want them in his life finally loses all of them and is truly alone in every way is a cool idea, but the episode around it and the season as a whole wasn't very good.

Here I like the angle they go a little better, Dexter always knew deep down that what he did hurt the people around him and it killed innocent people, the fact that mind Deb told him that proves that but it's good that he finally let's it come out into the open. And knows that there are no exceptions, everyone will be hurt including his son so in order to truly protect Harrison he has to die.

For most of the season we followed dexter business as usual, but we finally learn from Harrison's point if view how [frick]ed up it all really is and that was refreshing and a good way to show how this is the final season.Honestly if that were say the ending of season 5 or 6 when Harrison was young and it was a conclusion that was built up too properly with the writing skill of season 1 or 4 then I think this sort of idea of an ending would have been one fans liked.

Does this season have issues? Yes. Was it rushed? Yes. Could the stuff with Angela been handelled a hell of a lot better? Oh hell yes. But it did still have interesting ideas, Kurt is one of the best villains we've gotten in the show and the acting from everybody, MCH and the actor for Harrison especially was top notch. This season was not the best but it's certainly not the worst and acting like this ending is the worst thing ever all over again I don't think is entirely fair. Could we have gotten better? Sure. But we got a C+ ending id say. Wish we could have gotten better like the rest of ya could have been worse.

@Mrcool210 - I’ll never understand people who say the season 8 ending in 2013 was better.. I simply can’t comprehend it.

@Mrcool210 - Good points. This ending sucked, though.
TheHumanSpider2 - 1/10/2022, 11:39 AM
I think the perfect ending was Debra killing him at the end of season 7, but well, this works too.
Not the biggest fan of this being more of an assisted suicide than an actual killing, but again, this works, Dexter always only had to possible outcomes; suicide or being killed by the police, him getting assisted by his son (only person he ever loved) to commit ok.
About a spin-off about, a spin-off about Trinity Killer...yes.

Anway, this season acomplished its purpose, which was giving the series a good my eyes, this is season 5.

JIM, it's J I M, Lindsay. At least try and read the stuff you plagerize.

Not as bad as the previous finale, but still disappointing that Dexter was taken out by whiny Harrison of all people.
Zer0squad - 1/10/2022, 12:54 PM
The ending was so [frick]ing stupid. I could come around to understanding that Dexter had to die for his son to have any kind of a shot at life, it sucks but I could get there. Having Harrison resolve all his anger at being abandoned by his father... by killing his father... yup. perfectly logical. That wouldn't [frick] anyone up further. I swear it seems that writers just keep getting dumber and dumber. I dread any kind of reboot or long sitting sequel anymore. Hollywood just shits all over everything good anymore.
theFUZZ008 - 1/10/2022, 1:12 PM
Bad ending to an okay series.
NegativeNerd - 1/10/2022, 1:26 PM
I'm glad Dexter finally faced consequences for his actions over the last seasons. So at least that happened. I felt like the dude should've died in the previous "final season". But whatever, I surely do hope this is the actual final season. You can only stretch something like this for so long...

Actors who play a role for too long get a hard on to kill the character, seems to always happen.

See Ford’s Solo, or even Craig’s Bond.

Personally, I would have preferred Angela find Kurt’s museum and come to grips with Dex doing more good then bad.

Harrison’s story was trash, idc what anyone says.

Lastly, the show could have easily have gone on, even if it had Dexter on the run in LA. Isn’t the ultimate goal to bring in viewers? This had an established fan base. Killing him off wasn’t necessary, although it does give some closure. I feel like M.C. Hall had some input.

Good luck with the singing career 🤣 jk

RIP Dexter Morgan, a hero among monsters.

I knew that it was inevitable for Dexter’s story to end with him either being killed off, or ending up in prison.

As sad as I am to see the character go, this felt like a fitting finale. The original finale was so rushed and felt like a huge cop out. I’m glad Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall were given the chance to do a proper finale for Dexter.

One of the things that did bug me, was Dexter killing Logan. That was just so out of character. I understand that was a catalyst for Harrison to turn against Dexter, but that didn’t sit well with me.

Also, it is kind of interesting that the end credits showed Harrison driving through the night. It’s almost like they were teasing that his story will go on.

Hated Dexter killing Coach and the episode went downhill from there. But I'm good with the ending. Lots of possibility to continue. Have it focused on Harrison and bring back Michel C. Hall as the ghost of Dexter giving him advice like Harry did in early seasons and Deb did this season.

It was Jim Lindsay not Jeff Lindsay. Jeff Lindsay is the name of the author who wrote the novels
Kadara - 1/10/2022, 10:54 PM
That seems more fitting conclusion for Dexter: it was always about his dark passenger versus his family, seems apt they came head to head. Now the countdown begins for HBO to fix Game of Thrones lol!

@HamiltonParker Who is "Jeff Lindsay"? Proof reading is your friend.
