I agree with others that dumping Deb in the ocean seemed all wrong. I suppose I get that he felt like she was a "victim" of his lifestyle, but she wasn't an intentional victim and certainly didn't deserve to be dropped to the bottom of the ocean with all of the scum he killed before her!!
While I understand the producer's explanation that he isolated himself because he felt like he hurt everyone around him, it still felt too out of character for him to abandon Harrison. I just didn't "believe" that he would make that choice.
I didn't like to see Deb die, but I was just glad that they hadn't gone with a more typical ending where Dexter would have gotten killed(most likely protecting someone) or end up in jail, and was also grateful that they didn't kill off anymore of the main characters. I've seen a lot of people complaining places online about Dexter becoming a lumberjack. Would they have liked it better if he took up some other type of profession? lol
My favorite season was definitely season 4, with The Trinity Killer. I thought that was the most exciting one and Lithgow played the part very well. My least favorite season was probably the one with Lumen. Some of the people that I was sorry to see killed off too soon in the past were Doakes and Frank Lundy.
I never cared for Doakes. I was kind of glad he went out.
The way the show ended, kind of left it open that it could return one day as a movie or mini series. The last few seasons were so poor that it would take some really good writers to get fans interested in it again though.
I heard the ending and didn't believe it. What a load of crap. The writers should be ashamed. After season 4 this show really fell apart. The ending just makes no sense. He doesn't want Harrison to grow up with him because he's a monster but the other serial killer is ok?
I'm so glad I gave up on this show months ago.
I guess one day he will go find Harrison. Recall what he said to Harrison in that last phone call? He says please know that I love you until the next time I see you. Perhaps that will be 10 years later.
After seeing the end to breaking bad this weekend it really puts this show to shame. It goes to show you what happens when a person who creates a show maps the ending out when the show is created and not on the fly a few seasons past it's prime.
This ending could be worse and more of a cop out then Lost.
