A Dexter Community
Showtime (ended 2013)


Dexter fans, Michael C. Hall feels your pain.

In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, the actor admitted that the series finale left more than a little to be desired. "Liked it? I don't think I even watched it," Hall said.

After eight seasons of watching Dexter battle with his Dark Passenger, the end of the serial killer drama saw its titular hero transformed—into a lumberjack! "I thought it was narratively satisfying—but it was not so savory," Hall said of the episode, which aired in September.

"I think the show had lost a certain amount of torque," he continued. "Just inherently because of how long we'd done it, because of the storytelling capital we'd spent, because our writers may have been gassed. Maybe some people wanted a more satisfying — maybe they wanted a happy ending for him, either a happy ending or a more definitive sense of closure. They wanted him to die or something, but I think the fact that he's sort of exiled in a prison of his own making is, for my money, pretty fitting."

However, Hall also admitted to IGN last week that he still has his reservations about Dexter's survival. "Sometimes I wish he'd offed himself, wish he'd died, wish Deb had shot him in that train compartment—of course, that would have made an eighth season difficult to do," he noted.
