The Final Season of Dexter starts tonight?

The season after Trinity should have been the last.  Have it go crazy that season, and have him on the run, etc.

 

Or they could have had him move to another country or something like that and start a sort of new show, new characters, etc.  They instead kept recycling the same crap.

What a fuging terrible ending. Just awful.  It's one thing to BS around for the entire last season, but to literally end the series on THAT note is ridiculous....

I don't hate the ending. It's a whole lot better than the supposed ending with Matthews. But I will say that the ending felt slopped together with no real sense of meaning.

I could have lived with it if he actually followed through with it, but whatever.  Dexter's glory way season 4 I think it was (trinity?). Since then it's been a lot of mediocre to bad episodes with a handful of good-great thrown in there....

It was bad.  Only ending I would have liked would have been the happy ending, with Dexter with his family down in Argentina.  Instead, this was so silly I seen the hurricane thing coming a mile away.  Although I think Dexter continued his killing in his new place, I think that's what the final face/snap out of it was in the last scene.

It’s not the worst series finale I’ve ever seen but it could have been so much better. The self-imposed exile really makes no sense

The exile didn't bother me, i mean the series has been building that way for a while especially with Debs fate. That proved to Dexter his own toxicity and given his personal views as a character death or exile was the only option, he doesn't get the happy ending. What bothers me is the dark knight returns ending of escaping death. The ending could have been stronger, but when it started with all the cast thanking the fans I had a feeling something unepic was about to happen. All in all it didn't ruin the series for me so there is at least that.

Could the final season been better? sure, but it was far from terrible. And technically they could always bring the show back. I don't think they will or should but part of the fan in me will hold out hope.

True, but I’ve always thought this toxicity comes from the fact Dexter tries to live in two worlds that conflict with one another. Being a serial killer while working with cops and wanting to be human always lead him to hurting the people he loves. Now in this season he finally “becomes human” and doesn’t have the desire to kill anymore so why exile himself? His problems which lead to him hurting others are gone.  

 

I don’t mind him punishing himself but the whole he has to do this to protect Hannah and Harrison I didn’t like because it didn’t make much sense to me.

I wouldn't say this season was FAR from terrible, it was probably right in the middle of ok and terrible.   Also, I am having a hard time thinking up a WORSE series finale than this one, especially for a show that lasted 8 seasons.  They mailed this season in.  Dexter started out as a show that was so different, and took different turns, a show where the main character was completely bad, but yet you liked him.  This season went cliche after cliche to the bitter end.  There is no excuses, it was God awful.

 

And the whole "I'm toxic" thing is stupid, it's not like the kid is better off in another country with a serial killer woman and has never been a mom, and fatherless?  If they wanted that route they shouldn't have killed Deb and had her take Harrison.   

 

Next Sunday we get to see a series end the way it should with Breaking Bad.

Not impressed with the ending at all. I thought the writers took the easy, non-creative way out.

 

So, he loves his son so much he outright abandons him with a wanted fugative...

That was an insult to all the people that watched the show for so many years.

That ending was one of the worst things I have ever seen.  The only plus is that they have destroyed the show over the last four seasons so the ending is not as disappointing.
