can't find one...anyone?

Don't know, want to start one?

buss Sat 07-Sep-13 23:59:58

Yes! I didn't like this series but now is really got going. Bit sad that his apprentice was killed though - I thought he was very funny.

I think dexter's girlfriend will be killed - it can't be a happy ending, it would be just too cheesy.

OMG! wow, I didn't realise I was that far behind.

I will now hide the thread grin

buss Sun 08-Sep-13 00:23:40

Yes hide the thread!!
We're on the final series!

MyNameIsLola Sun 08-Sep-13 00:26:39

There was a Dexter thread but it's been quiet a while now.

They will definitely kill someone off. Or Dexter himself will die.

Any theories on how it will all end? I'm stumped now.

I was hoping that his apprentice would take over from dexter so he could disappear with Hannah, but obviously that won't happen now.
I don't think they'll kill off dexter because of his son.

I think debs and dexter will 'survive' and Hannah will die. I think the programme has hinted that hannah deserves to die according 'the code' anyway.

I hope angel survives.
Not sure about his sister - think she may be a target.

Sigma Sun 08-Sep-13 00:37:59

His apprentice reminded me of Chuck Bass

buss Sun 08-Sep-13 00:40:51

Dunno who chuck bass is!

Rufus43 Sun 08-Sep-13 10:27:29

Back again! I quite liked Zachary, torch passing and all that

From what I've read fans of the show will probably hate the ending. I dont know what that means but as I only care about dexter and angel.....

They can kill Hannah and deb is a bit irritating now she is even more angst ridden. If she is back in the police she might cheer up a bit

Sandancer Sun 08-Sep-13 10:40:07

I think Dexter will be killed - not sure who by... but witnessed by his son, then in a few years time they'll be a series called "Harrison"

HighBrows Sun 08-Sep-13 10:44:26

Ok I'm all caught up and sickened about the two week break!

Here's what I think will happen:

Dr. Vogel and her son are the Brain Surgeons.
They will kill Dexter and Harrison - to examine their brains.
Deb's life will go back to normal now that Dexter is no longer in it.
Hannah will die too but first she'll poison Vogel and her wayward son.
Everyone else will live happily ever after including Mosuka (sp) would will impregnate his daughter!


HighBrows Sun 08-Sep-13 10:45:22

Sandancer that's a good possibility!

HolidayArmadillo Sun 08-Sep-13 10:49:17

I love dexter, thought it lost its way last series but this one is coming up trumps. No idea how its going to end though.

buss Sun 08-Sep-13 12:47:10

Mosuka was funny in the strip club where his daughter works telling the other men off for ogling her...that'll learn him!

MrsBungle Sun 08-Sep-13 12:51:05

I'm thinking along the same lines as sandancer

Debs is annoying me this series with all her angst.

I also think Vogel is more involved in this brain stuff than she's letting on.

buss Sun 08-Sep-13 12:53:17

Yes I also think Vogel is involved.

When Dexter found his apprentice dead, there was a shot of vogel looking at a brain part (whatever it's called) did she get hold of it?

I think Vogel and her son are drawing Dexter into a trap for some reason.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 08-Sep-13 15:07:07

i think dexter will have to die as he wont ever stop killing so may as well carry on making series's , but this is the last series, therefore he must die

or he will live happily ever after with hannah/debs and his son

i was omfg after zach died and vogel had his brain in her hand

need to watch last weeks, soooooooooooooooo behind, then can watch tonight smile

who is vogels son? [puzzled]

buss Sun 08-Sep-13 15:41:38

vogel's son is the boyfriend of Dexter's neighbour (who was murdered)

vjg13 Sun 08-Sep-13 16:26:38

Not on tonight, back in a week.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 08-Sep-13 17:01:20

Now watched and makes sense about vogels son - so are they in it together and I thought she killed Zach as didn't seem surprised to have his brain in her house

Did she know her son was really alive

And ahhhhhh not on tonight sad

MrsBungle Sun 08-Sep-13 19:22:09

I'm not sure if she knew her son was alive, it crossed my mind that she did know and knew if must be him sending her stuff and used dexter to find him?

She said "now do you believe me?" When dexter left - I assume to show that she was drugged and wasn't trying to kill her son.

I don't know but I do love dexter, I'm sad it's ending although I don't think it is as good as in the beginning. It was funnier then as well as dark! He seems to have more feelings now.

vjg13 Sun 08-Sep-13 20:37:25

I would like Dexter and Hannah to live happily ever after <sad old lady emoticon>! think you're right Mrs Bungle that she used Dexter to find her son.

DuelingFanjo Tue 10-Sep-13 16:54:28

Not sure where people are up to, we just watched the latest one. Jesus Dexter is being a complete numpty!

aliciaflorrick Wed 11-Sep-13 07:58:06

The only two characters I care about are Angel and Debs so as long as they don't die.

I think it's got to come out at the end that Dexter was the Bay Harbour Butcher because then LaGuerta can be proven to have been right, even from beyond the grave.

Without a doubt Vogel knew her son was the killer, in fact when I saw her holding Zac's brain at the end of that episode I thought she'd done it. I think she wants to cut open Dex's head and see what's inside it.

I think Dex has to die. I don't mind if they bump off Jamie and her annoying cop boyfriend who even after all these seasons I can't be bothered to remember his name - in my head he's the one who gives me the creeps.

Then a spin-off Vince Mosuko show, bit like Miami Vice for 2013.

aliciaflorrick Wed 11-Sep-13 07:58:56

Amber season seven is available on Netflix, so you can get the free trial for a month and watch it.

DuelingFanjo Wed 11-Sep-13 10:11:27


I want him and Debs to get back together.

aliciaflorrick Wed 11-Sep-13 11:01:40

Quinn that's the one, that guy gives me the creeps.

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 11-Sep-13 13:34:11

Fanjo - we've just found out dexters new door neighbours boyfriend is vogels son

DuelingFanjo Wed 11-Sep-13 15:49:38

I am one ahead of you. Will keep my mouth zipper grin

MrsBungle Wed 11-Sep-13 15:52:45

I want Quinn and debs to get back together too.osning, twee Jamie does my head in.

I think dexter will die and the last shot will be Harrison holding a knife with a muderous glint in his eye!

MrsBungle Wed 11-Sep-13 15:53:28

Osning is clearly not a word I don't think I meant moaning!

buss Wed 11-Sep-13 16:13:08

'I think it's got to come out at the end that Dexter was the Bay Harbour Butcher because then LaGuerta can be proven to have been right, even from beyond the grave. '

yes I agree with that...but where does that leave debs? She killed her after all. Don't wanna see Debs in prison!

I think Quinn isn't good enough for Debs. He's such a jerk. I like Deb's boss - may be he'll figure it all out and protect her?

Angel I will miss a lot. I heart him.

Dexter is great but he's doing my head in a bit with some of his choices (just get Hannah out of town you idiot) and I'm sick of seeing his bare arse.

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 11-Sep-13 21:50:16

Fanjo - for some strange reason dexter wasn't on last Sunday sad or we would be at the same place smile

limitedperiodonly Thu 12-Sep-13 08:42:26

That sex scene was cringeworthy, wasn't it? What was Michael C Hall thinking?

And he wears pale pink lipstick, surely.

Vince used to be my favourite character but they've toned him down.

Quinn is really thin and he wears horrible shirts. Plus, they can't make up their minds about him - first he hated Dexter, now he likes him, he was corrupt but now it's not that bad, he was a drunk and a useless cop but now he's not and he's good.

I hate Jamie. I know her friend had been murdered but I kept thinking pull yourself together. And do something other than make Harrison's lunch. And put some fucking trousers on.

Still like it though. Dexter must die.

HighBrows Thu 12-Sep-13 10:01:36

I find all the sex scenes in Dexter toe curling, they've always made me cringe especially the ones with Rita.

Debs does annoys me, she's always on the verge of tears.

I think this series is terrible. It all feels worn out and the acting seems to be really bad. It should have finished about 3 seasons ago, perhaps with Triinity.

I can't stand Vogel, she is so wooden. Can't stand Jamie and Quinn talks without moving his mouth. Dexter feels like a caricature of himself now. Even the way he does the talk over is laughable.


Blondeshavemorefun Thu 12-Sep-13 13:28:03

always nice to see sexter dexter bum though ladies grin

buss Thu 12-Sep-13 15:49:31

I hate Jamie too. Did she ever mention that guy she was dating that dexter murdered? The geeky one that worked with him? I don't think she did.

buss Mon 16-Sep-13 07:33:30

so vogel chose Dexter over her son.
I think Daniel will go after Harrison and Debs to make Dexter suffer.

aliciaflorrick Tue 17-Sep-13 06:10:08

Hopefully he'll go after Hannah next week.

I really want a happy ending for Debs.

The Mail website keeps running hints on the end at the moment, I've stopped reading all Dexter related stories. Apparently fans won't like the ending and that it can only end one way. I'm pretty convinced now that Dexter is going to die, but I don't want it to be Vogel's son that kills him.

On a different note, I have always found the opening credits to Dexter very disturbing and really can't watch them, particularly the bit at the end where the t-shirt goes over his face. They do actually freak me out more than the gory murders.

buss Tue 17-Sep-13 08:27:56

Oh god yes the opening credits! It's the cutting up the ham I don't like.

Perhaps Angel will kill Dexter? He's the only one that I could accept doing it I think!

DuelingFanjo Tue 17-Sep-13 10:45:19

yaarrghh - I am Soooo annoyed with the stupidity of Dexter and his sister in this last series. The plot is so full of holes.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 17-Sep-13 14:23:51

Can't believe Vogel is dead !!!

Sexter dexter has to die and maybe on a slab with plastic all around him

Naughty Harrison not doing as told

HighBrows Mon 23-Sep-13 11:10:37

Did you all watch it last night? What an utter mess.

This season has been so slow and Dexter hasn't killed anyone, what's that all about....?

I can't wait for this to finally finish.

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Mon 23-Sep-13 11:24:03

You could see that coming a mile off. I think Dexter is the one who is going to end up in the electric chair at the end, cos he's made the wrong decision about killing/leaving for a new life with Hannah. It has been clunky and a bit muddled in getting to this point IMO. I have loved Dexter from the beginning, but I'm disappointed with how this is unravelling. Vogel should have been floating in and out from the beginning, then this last story would have had more credence. I can't decide if Batista will have to shoot Dexter in the end (possibly finding his sister Jaime dead) or if he'll be laid bare as a serial killer to Miami PD with all his colleagues in shock/disgust etc at what he is. Whatever happens, I don't think there's a happy ever after story for Dexter.

moogy1a Mon 23-Sep-13 12:55:45

Why hasn't Hannah cut her hair and dyed it dark?
I agree very disappointing series.
at least we don't have to watch the wooden Vogel any more

aliciaflorrick Mon 23-Sep-13 18:49:28

I love Dexter but I've just found this whole final series really disappointing.

DuelingFanjo Mon 23-Sep-13 20:15:00

Can't wait for next week when I can actually discuss this. shock

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Mon 23-Sep-13 20:50:58

Ooh have you seen the last one then dueling?

I've seen the last episode too!

buss Mon 23-Sep-13 22:44:10

I'm also really annoyed with Dexter. There was no reason why he couldn't have got Hannah hidden away out of town by now.
She's made no effort to disguise herself either.
It's ridiculous. <grrr>

limitedperiodonly Tue 24-Sep-13 11:00:09

It is disappointing, isn't it? I agree tension, Vogel should have been there from the beginning for it to make sense.

Deb's been shot before, in the other side. Don't they remember that? I can't remember the series but it happened and then there was a plot development which revolved around her having a scar.

Shame, because I did like it.

DuelingFanjo Tue 24-Sep-13 11:34:07

oooh - sugar. I am bursting to discuss it.

limitedperiodonly Tue 24-Sep-13 11:44:45

Hold on, dueling it's not long now.

I was idly looking up something on Michael C Hall's illness and the report, which was supposed to be about cancer, not the show, had the all time worst spoiler I've ever read. It was the Trinity series which had just started.

I wanted to hunt that person down and have them wake up in a plastic-lined room with me cleaning my nails with a big knife. I still might.

It was even worse than when someone actually sought me out to tell me what happened to a key character in the Wire, and then when I was really cross, said: 'Oh, didn't you want to know? I thought you liked the show.'

Not that I'm saying you'd do that. I'm just still scarred grin

HighBrows Tue 24-Sep-13 12:21:15

I'd love to know how it all ends... does anyone want to PM me... I honestly don't care about Dexter or anyone else in the show anymore..!

How did you get to see the last one?

EauRouge Tue 24-Sep-13 12:26:43

I've seen the last one. Wish I hadn't bothered!

DuelingFanjo Tue 24-Sep-13 14:03:17

Highbrows, DH downloads it (Illegal!) as it's shown in America a week ahead.
I won't do spoilers. Could PM you but it's going to sound really boring on 'paper'. I proper cried for several reasons though.

aliciaflorrick Tue 24-Sep-13 14:27:09

I haven't seen it, so I'm just speculating, but based on the disappointing last episode I think Dexter is just going to fly off into the sunset with Harrison. He's not going to get caught. I reckon Hannah is a gonner though.

buss Tue 24-Sep-13 16:22:00

I think they will get spotted at the airport by deb's old boss and they will try to escape on dexter's boat. The storm is significant I think - they mentioned it loads of times.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 24-Sep-13 18:24:29

duelling and fisher shush!! not a word till next week!!!!

i was surprised debs left him alone, NEVER leave killers alone, plus why didnt hannah dye her hair/cut it short etc hmm

hope debs is ok, still think dexter will die

Vogel returns, she's not actually dead. She kills everyone currently still alive with high and low flying splinters because she's so wooden.

Boom boom.


aliciaflorrick Wed 25-Sep-13 08:07:18

To be fair, Vodel hasn't been the only wooden actor on Dexter this year.

Is it wrong to hope that Jamie still gets bumped off?

I know, I think even Dexter was wooden at times. Debs, Batista and Masuka weren't wooden ever I don't think.

DuelingFanjo Wed 25-Sep-13 23:50:44

Interesting Charlotte Rampling (dr Vogel) fact, apart from once being married to Jean Michel Jarre ... 'The British rock band Kinky Machine wrote a song about her, simply called "Charlotte Rampling." It includes the line "I always wanted to be your trampoline".'

whatwoulddexterdo Thu 26-Sep-13 19:48:51

I thought it was sad in the penultimate episode when his Dad disappears for good saying Dexter doesn't need him anymore.
Agree with others that the series has lost its way and is a million miles away from the truly brilliant early seasons.
I would like there to be some resolution to the whole psychopath business. I really believed that it would turn out that there was nothing wrong with Dexter and that his Dad snd Vogel had groomed him in that way.
I hope that he is finally revealed as the bay harbor butcher.
I will miss him though, especially the old darker dexter.

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Sun 29-Sep-13 23:25:15

Wot? No posts? grin

Just finished watching - they should have just finished it at the bit where Hanna & Harrison walked away. It would have left a bit of mystery, uncertainty. Definitely an anti-climax. I think ill miss Batista most. sad

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 30-Sep-13 00:24:25

I am so sad and hmm

What a crap ending - so he technically kills debs - dumps her body over the boat - then abandens Harrison and Hannah incase he ever hurts them or others hurt them coz of him

He pretends to drown and works as a wood trucker man

And no more urges to kill people

anon2013 Mon 30-Sep-13 00:42:12

terrible ending!. Told a friend to not watch it and make there own ending up. Bad acting, bad plot just bad.angry

PrincessLayer Mon 30-Sep-13 01:03:38

And, as the final episode finished, I thought to myself...."8 years....8 fucking years and this is the best ending they could come up with...."

aliciaflorrick Mon 30-Sep-13 06:24:46

Wish I hadn't watched Season 8.

Why would Dex throw Debs overboard like all of his victims?

I knew the American audiences had hated the ending and the screenwriters have been trying to justify themselves all week, but that really was an utter pile.

aliciaflorrick Mon 30-Sep-13 06:27:27

It made the ending of Lost look good.

hudyerwheesht Mon 30-Sep-13 07:06:07

I actually justified it a bit to my fuming DH, saying its not the kind of show to have them walking off happily ever after all warm and fuzzy like, being the dark drama that it is BUT having said that...

WTAF?! Nobody gets a decent ending.
Harrison orphaned and left to be raised in a strange country with someone he's known for, what, six months who is technically a fugitive.
A watery grave for Deb, a heartbroken Quinn and Dexter himself a loner bloody lumberjack with no son, family or friends.

For 8 fucking years the audience has been made to root for Dexter- despite what he was you always wanted things to work out for him - and this shit is the ending you give us, Asswipe Producers?angry
Would've been a much better ending to have him appear in Argentina at the last second. Corny, but, the audience would have thought him faking his death would have been the twist and wouldn't have seen it coming and at least it wouldn't have been so fucking depressing.
(Disclaimer:I know it's not real, etc and may be overthinking a bit but I'm pissed off)

aliciaflorrick Mon 30-Sep-13 07:50:59

But I didn't want him to walk off happily ever after, I wanted La Guerta, and the black cop back in season 1 to have been proved right. I wanted Dexter to be caught, I wanted to see the confusion on all his colleagues that they had been working with the Bay Harbour Butcher and he'd outwitted them all. I wanted to see their devastation.

I did not want Debs to die.

What was the point of Masuka's daughter in this series? Why bother bringing her in?


limitedperiodonly Mon 30-Sep-13 08:58:38

It was bad. But I do feel like I've achieved something by sitting through eight series. I have low goals.

Just niggly practical things:

Does Hannah keep a syringe full of horse tranquiliser cocked and ready in her pocket at all times? What else does she have in her travel kit? I can barely remember to take a pair of warm socks for the plane.

How would Hannah manage to get out of the country with Harrison? He's not hers, he has a different surname and because he's bloody irritating he'd say to the first person who asked: 'This is my daddy's friend and we left Daddy at home to tie up some loose ends. BTW watch out when you're going through her pockets and whatever you do, say no, if she offers you a cup of tea.'

Why did they only have a carry-on bag each? Is Harrison the only child in the world who when told: 'Just choose something small for the flight', obeys you, rather than picking up a giant teddy, a family-sized bag of Haribo, some porn and having a screaming fit at the till?

Nice dress and shoes, Hannah. Not wildly practical for travel. Especially with a small child.

Wasn't Deb's ventilator fixed to an alarm? I know the hospital was in panic and someone might not come, but when he disconnected it, it didn't even go off. Last time I was in hospital I couldn't wait to get home for a rest from the binging and bonging.

How did Dexter get off his boat and swim miles to shore in a hurricane with a nasty biro injury in his shoulder?

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 30-Sep-13 08:59:32

Should have been caught and then maybe gone year into the future and fried in the chair

EauRouge Mon 30-Sep-13 09:09:14

Do life support machines usually have a massive obvious switch that says 'OFF'?

aliciaflorrick Mon 30-Sep-13 09:23:08

I presumed Hannah had the horse tranquiliser in the bag that Dexter gave her as she got on the bus, you know when he said some snacks and other useful things, and gave her a deep meaningful look in the eyes.

It was a really pretty dress though.

limitedperiodonly Mon 30-Sep-13 09:28:06

You're right alicia. But if it had been me, I'd have stabbed myself rootling about for it.

anon2013 Mon 30-Sep-13 10:01:00

Still in disbelief. If Debs had been shot/killed at the end of the last episode and then Dexter broke into the station and killed Saxton in front of Quinn/Batista who then let him go then it might've made sense.

I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok? angry

TheFabulousIdiot Mon 30-Sep-13 10:51:29

Ah - hoorah - I can talk about it now?

I actually think it was a good ending. Am I alone?

The whole of this (and part of the last) series really pissed me off because Dexter was being so out of character, doing things that went against the code, falling deeply in love etc.

To have him lose the one person he really loved, who really knew him (Deb) was the thing that set him free from this whole idea that he could run off into the sunset with Hannah and not be the same old Dexter.

He needs to kill. I imagine that he is still killing (Though now without the cover of his job as a forensics expert!?) and he now doesn't have to worry about Deb or Harrison.

I cried over the fact that he decided to leave Harrison with Hanna - a totally nuts and stupid and heartbreaking thing to do but logically Harrison could have a better life so long as Hanna doesn't get caught.

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Mon 30-Sep-13 10:58:46

I think it would have been more logical that Saxon got to and killed Jamie & Harrison, Deb knew Dexter would kill Saxon but by some bizarre twist Quinn (as in worked something out and acted on it) actually stumbled across dexter's kill room while he was mid chop. Deb couldn't protect him from the consequences but smuggled a lethal syringe to him so he would kill himself by his own syringe. Now that would have been ironic/poetic justice. I wanted to see Batista slowly realise what and who Dexter is/was. Overall it was a piss poor ending. I think the view on that is unanimous.

FatPenguin Mon 30-Sep-13 11:00:46

I was disappointed with the last episode. Disappointed with the whole series tbh. I think they really lost it after Trinity, it just wasn't the same.
I think Dexter should have gone to Argentina with Hannah and Harrison - it upset me to think of Harrison with no parents (yes I get into it too much).
Oh well. Walking Dead is back 18th Oct they better not disappoint angry

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Mon 30-Sep-13 11:01:44

Here's hoping Hannah doesn't get too stressed with a boy acting out 'cos he misses his dad, and reaches for the 'special herbs' to deal with his behaviour...

limitedperiodonly Mon 30-Sep-13 11:48:42

Good points fabulousidiot I want to like it and you've helped.

I liked his chilling look at the end. I suppose he is still killing and getting away with it, because even though he hasn't got as many resources at his disposal any more, if you don't have any connection to someone and you're careful, you probably won't get caught.

What a shame that with the only person I wish dead, there's such a strong motive the police would be at my door the next day whether I had anything to do with it or not. Mind you, there'd be a lot of us helping the police with their inquiries.

I prefer bleak endings to happy ones.

It's just that was full of more 'and one bound he was free' moments than probably the whole previous seasons put together.

TheFabulousIdiot Mon 30-Sep-13 11:50:43

"Does Hannah keep a syringe full of horse tranquiliser cocked and ready in her pocket at all times? "

Didn't Dexter give her his bag and say it had 'some things she might beed for the journey'

TheFabulousIdiot Mon 30-Sep-13 11:53:25

I would think, that he's drifting from job to Job and maybe, just maybe, he will drift into Harrison's life at some point. Honestly the thought of Harrison not being with his dad really upset me. I would rather he be with Dexter than with Hannah but I suppose Hanna only killed because she had to, she isn't a killer like Dexter - with a drive to murder people.

I just wonder how will Dexter kill the right people now, without the benefit of working in a police environment where he could find people who deserved it.

*I am Dueling by the way - Just name changed.

limitedperiodonly Mon 30-Sep-13 11:54:05

by some bizarre twist Quinn (as in worked something out and acted on it) actually stumbled across dexter's kill room while he was mid chop.

The older I get the more I realise there are more Quinns in the world than Holmeses.

Apologies to any police officers who can do the job. I know you're out there and I'm grateful.

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Mon 30-Sep-13 11:57:24

Limited, you could just picture Quinn with that confused look, shouting WTF while waving his gun in all directions. I might just have swung the sergeant's promotion he was so keen on...grin

TensionWheelsCoolHeels Mon 30-Sep-13 11:58:11

It. It might have swung...

limitedperiodonly Mon 30-Sep-13 12:03:52

I wondered whether he might kill the wrong people now.

Someone pointed out the bag of tricks Dexter gave Hannah. I forgot about his meaningful words.

I think Batista probably did realise at the end. So did Quinn, but Batista was a bit more thoughtful about it. I suppose he would come to realise that Dexter and Deb were responsible for LaGuerta's murder.

Good point limited. I think it would have made it more, I dunno, complete if Batista had realised La Guerta was right about Dexter i.e. you saw that he made that connection. He obviously wasn't convinced of the self defence argument but he clearly didn't think Dexter=serial killer. It stopped too soon to get there though so we'll never know.

Do we think there'll be a 'one off, final final special' at some point in the future? Maybe Batista takes a holiday in a log cabin and comes across a loner he thinks looks familiar...

The ending would've made sense if this wasn't the last season, but it is!.

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 30-Sep-13 12:53:44

maybe they left it like that so can come back in 5years time

still cant believe he has left harrison with a deranged serial killer grin and one that has no brains to disguise her self hmm

dexter left her a little bag of stuff she may needs, snacks and stuff !!!

BlatantRedhead Mon 30-Sep-13 13:05:28

That ending left my blood boiling - Hannah fucking McKay walks off into the sunset with Harrison and Debra dies??? Wtf? I know Deb has been very annoying over the years but she really grew on me. Hannah McKay is a 'nothing' character. No personality, only there to serve a specific purpose. Why does she get the happy ending?? And Dexter didn't die or get caught or anything, just abandoned his son to be raised by another serial killer?? Wtf???

DP and I bitched repeatedly during this series about the lack of brains going into the writing. She couldn't buy a wig to disguise herself? Not even fucking sunglasses? Jeez...


BlatantRedhead Mon 30-Sep-13 13:07:00

Batistas reaction to the stabbing did make me laugh out loud though.

TheFabulousIdiot Mon 30-Sep-13 13:22:31

one thing that really really bugged me was when the private eye (Deb's old boss) dropped off some things in a paper bag at her house as an excuse to try to get into the house. Why oh why oh why didn't he fit some kind of tracking device or recorder to the bag and why oh why didn't debs even bother to check the back to see if he had? Surely with them both working in the private eye profession one of them would have thought to do so?

But Deb had to die. She murdered LaGuerta, who was going through one of her nice phases, rather than scheming bitch phases.

TheFabulousIdiot Mon 30-Sep-13 13:52:45

I think Deb had to die to bring it home to Dexter how bloody stupid he was being to go against the code.

Why on earth did he decide not to kill Vogel's son when he could have?

anon2013 Mon 30-Sep-13 13:54:54

Vogels son knew too much for a start that's why I wad Sat in disbelief when he didn't kill him sad

anon2013 Mon 30-Sep-13 13:58:00

wad? Sat! lol

hudyerwheesht Mon 30-Sep-13 16:15:51

Agree with Blatantredhead, Hannah did not deserve the happy ending. If somehow Deb had ended up with Harrison, that would have been preferable. I actually thought that might be where it was heading with the whole baby Harrison flashback...

FoofFighter Wed 02-Oct-13 15:26:09

So disappointed. 8 bloody years. What on earth were the writers thinking??

I thought when he stood holding Deb in the boat that he was going to inject himself and let them both topple over into the water.

THAT would have been a good ending, not this sad

And to be left with such an open ending leaves us all with (probably) false hope that he'll be back.


Blondeshavemorefun Wed 02-Oct-13 17:13:47

Still can't believe he would leave the one thing he loved so much ie Harrison - to allow him to think he was dead

cocoleBOO Wed 02-Oct-13 17:23:07

I've been thinking about this since Sunday, they shouldn't have killed Debs. Dexter should have died and then they could do a spin off police series with everyone else on it smile

cocoleBOO Wed 02-Oct-13 17:24:15

This series was far too busy, too long and too many people appearing for the first time.

ThatVikRinA22 Wed 02-Oct-13 21:39:39

fuck a bastard duck.
just watched the last one.

pissed off. muchly.

i thought there were rumours of a spin off with Deb and Quinn?? and how could he just leave everyone like that?
i liked hannah but i wanted him to have a happy ending - not this.

HighBrows Thu 03-Oct-13 14:20:07

But what about Harrison, do his grandparents and siblings not wonder where he is I know this isn't real or was he presumed to be on the boat? Seriously, is Harrison presumed to be awol? Or kidnapped... It doesn't make any sense.

I hated the ending, it was just silly. Dexter should've been revealed to the world for what he was.... Yes let him escape but exonerate LaGuerta and Doakes... that would've been ok!

And while I'm on the subject did Dexter jump off the boat in a storm and swim to Canada or wherever the fuck he is? Nonsense ending angry hmm

PeanutPatty Fri 04-Oct-13 19:26:06

I'm so disappointed with S8. I even quit the SkyPlus series link when I had a clash appear. All previous Series were amazing. Absolutely brilliant and left you wanting more after each episode. Series 8 didn't seem credible.

Phoenixwoman Sun 13-Oct-13 21:51:20

Oh, so annoyed. Just caught up with s8 finale and it was so wrong and disappointing. I don't mind the Deb death so much or the burial at sea as she was one of Dexters victims. However, it was all so implausible, wheeling a dead body out of the hospital, not killing the brain surgeon the first time who knows he's a serial killer, sailing into a hurricane and surviving! But the worst was leaving Harrison with a known fugitive, they'll be chased and Harrison put into child services sad I know I'm over investing in this but I can't help feeling that dexter has let Rita, Cody and Astor down.
