Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Matthews and Harry could have made up the code together.

He kills criminals the police are too slow and clumsy to take care of.

It's possible that Matthews was feeding Dexter jobs the whole time.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Yeah, it is possible. But why would he then put LaGuarta on Dexters trail?

Unless he did it in order to create a situation where Dexter had to kill LaGuarta to be free.

And who knows, if Dexter doesn't feel bound up by his code any longer, then I suppose it is possible.

But the code has helped him from being caught before. If he turns his back on it, he will get caught.

Maybe the last episode of this show will be Dexter strapped up on a table, then given a lethal injection by the State?

Killing LaGuerta wouldn't even be breaking the code. The first rule is not to get caught.

Unless he wants Dexter to kill LaGuerta, then Matthews can swoop in to personally catch the Bay Harbor Butcher as the win of a lifetime. Two birds, one stone. But after seasons 5-6, that would be overthinking the show.

^^ I don't know, that's sounding much better than the snoozers I've been sitting through the last few weeks. Although he seems to enjoy his retirement.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Theory of what will happen in tonight's episode: Deb will kill Hannah which will leave her relationship with Dexter in a tense place in the season finale. Deb killing Hannah makes sense to me as the climax of her moral corruption that began when she helped Dexter cover up his murder of Travis Marshall.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Hmmmm... I like that one, Joe Washington. Dex kills LaGuerta while Deb kills Hannah. That would be an eventful finale.

Well; I'll know in the next half hour if I can stay awake through this week's Dexter.
Is it just me, or in this season are they bringing the 'hunger' angle back to Dexter? Longtime fans of the show will recall his near obsession with food at the start of the series, which tapered out.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

I can't believe that Dexter fell for LaGuerta's scheme. He finds out that she's onto him and the guy who ordered his mother's murder just happens to get released at the same time...DUH! C'mon Dexter! Think, man!

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Did you see Matthews?

Tom was so helping Dexter!

My theory is this, that as captain, Mathews made sure that Dexter was always the smartest man in the room.

Quinn, Angel and Masuka?

Pishaw!

Tom made it so easy for Dexter over the years that he doesn't know how to compete on a level playing field.

LaGuerta isn't supposed to be his sort of threat because Dexter put her through a crucible and her psyche profile has changed from when Matthews tagged her as mostly harmless.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

This season started out pretty good but reverted back to the season 5-6 stupidity.

Anyone think Deb crashed her own car and then deliberately drugged herself?

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

I thought that that was pretty obvious.

Did we see if she had rented a copy of Watchmen the night before?

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

I need to see that scene again - does she drop pills into her own water bottle? I wasn't paying close attention. I stayed awake this time, though!
Agreed with Aragon that the season did descend into stupidity. There was a nearly-Heroes level of writing incompetence with introducing characters, stringing them along and then killing them off for no particular reason.
-The nanny's boyfriend (game designer)
-The Euro-mafioso dude (from Rome)
It's no Jimmy Smitts season (awful season 3) but it's still lagged quite a bit. Anyway, all this Matthews-LaGuetra-BayHarbourButcher-Doakes stuff is legend, so more of that please!

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

I had a theory at one point that Dexter was a murder savant- great at murder, stupid at everything else. These latest plot developments seem to fit that theory. How does he not even consider that Deb may have poisoned herself? /facepalm

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Though I have enjoyed the return of LaGuerta's pursuit of Doakes's innocence and the consequences of that, for the most part I have come to dislike this season. It's not nearly as bad as last season. This season started out with such promise, especially with us knowing that this will be the second-to-last season of the show. Then much of that promise was wasted over the course of the season. I wished it was as intense and deliciously plot-twisted as the second season of Homeland. But instead most of the season has shown the worst of Dexter such as subplots going nowhere or ending with a whimper rather than with a bang, and the need to turn Dexter into a show about an emotionless killer becoming a real boy. I have noticed this has become an annoying aspect of the last five seasons, and I've been waiting for the show to shed itself of it once and for all to go back to the greatness it used to have.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Maybe this and next year's final season were planned out as one... so whatever next week brings us will be the 'beginning of the end.'

I would prefer to not have a whole season in 'trial' mode, court cases on TV are super boring. Even if it is Dexter.
