This season has been pretty terrible, honestly. I don't get the feel of a show ending at all. The only way to salvage this season IS a cool/crazy twist but even then, I'm not sure. After season 4 I thought this show was going to reach the tier of best shows ever, sadly it's been down since. Still watching because of investment though.
Same here. I used to get EXCITED about Dexter but most of what has happened after season 4 has been disappointing.
Season 5 - When it aired I defended this to no end. I still don't think that it's necessarily bad but I do think that it was a completely fuging retarded follow up to Rita's death.
Season 6 - Again, it isn't bad but it was really pointless in the grand scheme of things. Season 5 and 6 really should have just been combined together. The ending of this one was also completely ruined because of some asshole who made up spoilers. The fake ending was about 100x better than the real ending.
Season 7 - I thought this one was a return to form and felt like classic Dexter. I pretty much liked everything about it and it should have been a perfect starting point for the finale.
I completely agree that this season just doesn't have a sense of finality to it. Instead of exploring new things they're retreading old ground again and it just isn't interesting. I really hope they can turn it around but so far from everything I've seen I'm doubting it. If everyone doesn't find out about who Dexter and he doesn't end up on the run I'm going to be pissed.
