Dexter Season 8: Next on Episode 10
'Dexter' done for good: How do things end for the serial killer?
When it was announced that Dexter's eighth season would be its last, the news was not entirely unwelcome. The show had never fully recovered from the devastation wreaked by season four's main villain the Trinity Killer John Lithgow , and this final run has played out that inferiority, being patchy, unfocused and, at times, sloppy. Yet for all its flaws, I stuck with it, and hoped the series finale, at least, would be worth the wait. It wasn't. And I'm disappointed. It all fell apart completely in the last few minutes, with Dexter making two boneheaded, un-Dexter-like decisions that wearily knocked the final nails into the coffin that season eight built.
The show goes out in a way no other show has in the past. The epic story of Dexter has ended. Though the finale was completely shocking and unexpected, it will live in our minds for weeks to come. I guess that was the point, right? We will need a good amount of reflection before we put this series finale behind us. The finale helped solidify that with one of the best episodes of Dexter in years. To be honest, the finale starts a little slow.
Read on with caution…. Here, the EP — who has worked on the Showtime saga since the very beginning — details the decision to let Dexter live, explains why the ending fans saw was the only one on the table pun intended , breaks down the significance of that haunting final shot and much, much more. Going into exile away from everything that he knows and has become attached [to] in his whole infrastructure is a more fitting punishment for what his journey toward being a human being has cost everyone around him. Deb, who was his touchstone and soulmate, died — and this was the only fitting punishment. He banishes himself, if you will, into exile. Do you know how much easier it is to be a sociopath, and not to think and not to have anxiety and not to have hesitation or to love?
D eb - Dex Drama: Congratulations to whoever had Episode 8 in their "When will 'Dexter' drudge up the semi-incestuous Deb-is-in-love-with-Dexter storyline from last season" office pool. He already did her there last episode. When that revelation stirred up some jealous feelings, Deb finally confessed to Dexter that she's in love with him. So we now have a brother-sister-serial-killer-cop-other-lady-serial-killer love triangle on our hands. To recap: Dexter was going to kill Hannah, then he decided to have sex with her instead. Dexter told her he couldn't because he's been sleeping with her. Deb told Dexter she was in love with him.
