She seems to be recovering and he decides to send Hannah and Harrison to Jacksonville where they could catch a flight.

In the flashback scene between Deb and Dexter in the hospital, the mesh lining of a wig the actress is wearing (to reflect her older hair style) can clearly be seen in the parting of the hair. See more »

Cant decide whether its Dexter or writers are actual psychopaths???
24 September 2013 | by surendranathSee all my reviews

Dexter turned out to be my favorite series and from the start onwards looking forward for a final to see how it pan out and i'd say this is the most lamest one the writers actually thought of.

First of all Dexter is an unique person and the character itself reveals how he enjoys every killing and the person who killed his sister should be more wild and furious and the antagonist in this season is actually turned out to be amazing. The person one of the best psychopaths as he kills his own mother and brother and thought the season to be interesting as 1 and 4, But turned out to be worse than 6 & 7.

Its good to see that dexter started to turn out to have a family and started to control his urges but is it necessary to kill Debra character and go to some lumber yard for some sore job. First of all when he has no family at all what is there to control them and to fear about.

Literally i think writers completely chopped away all the characters by not linking any trace.. Perfect murder of a greater series..If there is a chance please try to do an alternate ending..
