Better question: Will any of us care? I certainly don't. Ugh.

Re: Dexter - The Final Season (Spoiler Discussion)

Hey if you need a murderous soulmate, ending up with Sarah Walker ain't half-bad, guys. Getting Masuka daughterboobs was probably the least surprising thing of all time. This certainly isn't what I'd call a great season, but being as I watch it right next to True Blood every week, it can only look good by comparison.

Re: Dexter - The Final Season (Spoiler Discussion)

Hoo boy. It's really limping towards the finish line. I forgot how incredibly annoying Hannah was. Is she doing to kill Dexter? Probably not. But we'll have to watch it all play out in slow motion!

I just wish it was all out on the table. Now. I want to see Dexter confronted by his colleagues, so much. I wonder if Angel would pull a Hank from Breaking Bad and smack him up a bit, Masuka looking disappointed and Quinn leap up and down screaming 'I told you so' and then they all slowly start to understand the brilliance of circumventing a system of justice which is deeply flawed. I guess I had this crazy idea that the 'idea' of Dexter would be pushed to the limit now at the end of this series and before you know it, he'd have all those around him helping him 24/7 to pick up the slack in the due process of policing.

Re: Dexter - The Final Season (Spoiler Discussion)

Last night's episode was pretty terrible. Dexter takes on a pupil, but completely ignores him. Hannah comes back and poisons him and Deb, but not really. Hannah loves Dexter. Dexter loves Hannah. Who cares. I've enjoyed this season as a whole so far but I'm not sure they know what they're doing with the last half of it. Seems to be a mish-mash of too many ideas.

Re: Dexter - The Final Season (Spoiler Discussion)

The kid didn't kill tutorgirl (fuck, that was a LONG time ago.)... It's an obvious misdirect to pit them at odds when it's probably Julian Sands handy work to put Dexter in the spotlight away from his wife... Or Hannah is playing a REALLY long game seeing Tutorgil as competition.

Re: Dexter - The Final Season (Spoiler Discussion)

I rewatched this episode last night before deleting it from the DVR... I thought maybe I'd watched it wrong somehow and wanted another crack at it. It wasn't so bad after all... but as Guy Gardener reminds us, this is obviously leading towards some sort of scenario in which Zach, Dexter's pupil, is going to either kill or nearly kill Masuka's daughter when she inevitably becomes the intern. You know, so we can endure a few more awkward scenes between them at the police station.

There's something unusually unlikable about Zach. I want Dex to off him right way. At least the Hannah/Dexter storyline is about to plow into Masuka's story. He doesn't seem to have any of Dexter's good qualities, save that he has some concern for his mother.

I also wonder about how likely Jaime is also going to get whacked... I guess any lingering support for Dex that Angel/Masuka might have will be gone if Dex's superstar student kills all the women in Dexter's life just to get him to pay more attention to him. I realize he's likely only there to provide Dex + Deb an escape from Miami, but he's so unlikeable.

We love Dexter for so many reasons. The excellent portrayal by Hall. His ability to cope with his 'dark passenger' and try to lead a normal life. This is upstaged by a creepy rich brat who, so far, has only proved useful for getting Dexter into an exclusive nightclub.

Is this going to end with Dexter, Hannah and bratty Zach all killing together, posing in a new part of the world as a nuclear family? If so, Dexter, kill me first!

This season is not very good. Should have killed it one or two seasons ago.

I'm enjoying this season but it sure doesn't feel like it's a final season. A final season should have more urgency to it.

Re: Dexter - The Final Season (Spoiler Discussion)

Finally watched the latest, and ugh. I keep hoping the pace will pick up, and that maybe the "next episode" will finally start to ratchet up the tension.... but nope. Just more pointless subplots and needless side characters.

It seemed like something interesting might happen with Hannah drugging Dexter and Debra, but that didn't go anywhere. And Vogel has pretty much become an afterthought by this point.

When seeing Masuka's daughter topless is about the only highlight you can think of in an episode, you know something is wrong. lol

That's almost certainly going somewhere. Hannah's husband referred to her 'loose ends' and Dexter mentioned it a few times as well, he seemed pissed at her violation. Maybe she did a "Weekend-at-Bernie's" style photo shoot with Dexter's limp body to build an arsenal of blackmail against both Dex and Deb.

Wearing sunglasses, propped up in a kill room, etc.

Dexter was left near a river in the morning with his cell phone. Would Hannah need assistance in moving a body around? Who would be helping her, if so? I expect at least this part of the story to be explained.

Re: Dexter - The Final Season (Spoiler Discussion)

^ I think you're putting way too much faith in these writers. Just like those who swear we haven't seen the last of the Brain Surgeon, even though it's clear the writers have completely moved on from that and are concerned only with Hannah and the psycho kid now.
