In my opinion this season has been massively disappointing so far. It doesn't even feel like the end, they're reusing old plotlines, and they're wasting time on things that no one cares about.

Im not going to say its bad, but its far from even mediocre. And with Breakiing Bad returning next week I dont know that Dexter is compelling enough to make the cut for what gets on the DVR.

You get the sense watching it that no one involved in the production gave a damn.

Yeah it's not but it's just disappointing to me. It seems like they took the most boring possible path to the end.  Nothing really feels final about this season either. It basically just feels like the same old thing. Hell, so far it honestly feels more like fan fiction than it does Dexter to me. I'm keeping faith though that they'll turn things about and the actual ending will be intense. 

 

Everyone wanted an ending where everything came crashing down around Dexter but so far all we're getting is basically a parody of itself.

I feel like they’re making a point to explore all of Dexters humanity but at times its come at the cost of entertainment.

I read some stuff from a guy who is an insider and knows how the show ends. Apparently they're going in slow like this on purpose and by the time the end rolls around it's going to be crazy. Here's a direct quite from him

 

"You're going to have to scrape your brain matter off the ground. You're going to just sit there as the blood theme plays for the final time and then several minutes after wondering what the fug just happened. The ending will be iconic, and set the bar for series finales across the map."

 

That gives me hope at least. Since realistically the last few episodes is really all that matters.

I've read so many different spoilers for the last episode. I don't know which one to believe. lol

I don't think that legit spoilers will leak for it. They've been known to keep things locked down tight when something big is going to happen. When Rita died they purposefully leaked fake spoilers just to throw everyone off.

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.

Last season should have been when he was busted, at the end of the season, or at least have people start questioning him as a possible suspect, and not crazy people but FBI/detectives.  This season should really be Dexter on the defensive/on the run.  

 

What I really wish happened was Dexter, after season 4, moves to a new city or even a new country and starts up his killings again.  Maybe somewhere like Chicago or somewhere with snow/new environment.   Eventually the FBI notices a pattern somehow and then the show goes crazy.  I'm just bored of Miami, and I'm bored of all the characters.  You could take Dexter and put him in another city with a new crew around him and I wouldn't miss anyone from this show.
