  • Is this the way Dexter Ends

    It looks like not only has Dexter "jumped the shark" but it has wines and dined it as well.

    It has been one of my favorite shows and I have never missed an episode,


    how are the writers going to make the next season sensible?

    Debra the new Police Lieutenant watches her brother (who for some bloody ridiculous reason the writers have decided that she is now in love with him which now breaks the sister / brother bond) kill the villain.

    What will the writers have happen now,

    1/ She shoots him - No - he is her brother and that would be the end of the show.

    2/ She joins him in his actions - No - its not Dexter and Deb

    3/ She passes out and when she comes to her brain has pushed what she saw away, and we spend all of season 7 watching Dexter wonder when and if the memory comes back.

    4/ She is in a dream state (god I hope not that is so old) from either an accident or is in hypnosis from the therapist.

    5/ He kills her - No - she is his brother.

    The only way out I see is that he killed the villain somewhere else, maybe in the big boat. and he was carrying out a fake ritual to see if he could rid himself of his "Dark Passenger' to see if Brother Sam was not talking rubbish, and he actually stabbed a dummy, but even that scenario is a bit thin.

    Shame, it was such a good show.
