I thought for sure that the ending of season 7 would lead to him getting caught at the beginning of 8. I mean, realistically someone would have to at least investigate that possibility. Everything was adding up to be that the murder of Laguerta would be a crime that Dexter COULDN'T escape. Instead they just brushed it under the rug like nothing happened. At this point I'm wondering if he'll even get caught.
What the best dramas do is evolve naturally. For a while Dexter did that but after Clyde Phillips left they've basically started writing it like a comic book. This season being a shining example of that. I don't think anyone wanted another Dexter vs. serial killer season. People wanted him to get busted and for him to be on the run with actual new and exciting things happening. This honestly feels more like fan fiction than an actual season of Dexter.
and am I the only one who has noticed that Dexter has lost his charm? To me he just comes off as an asshole a lot of the time now.
