Let’s all take a moment of silence for the end to one of the best shows on television.
Okay, now…Seriously? SERIOUSLY!!?? WHAAAAT THE FUCK!!!??? Dexter series finale, “Remember the Monsters” reminded us that Dexter is still a BAMF, still a killer, and not likely to fit into society no matter who is by his side. Was it sappy? A bit, yes. I didn’t get the chance to watch the show as it premiered, and so I was left wondering why my cohort warned me to “have a box of kleenex handy” as I enjoyed this last installment of Showtime’s Dexter. Well, I’m not wondering any longer, now am I? This episode had me all over the place emotionally. The fact that Saxon got away at the end of the last episode top on my list of “fuck no” moments, not only because he gut-shot Deb, but because of him and stupid Elway, Dexter, Harrison and Hannah didn’t get on that original flight to Argentina. With Deb in the hospital, Dexter decides to go to her side and they proceed to hold the last conversation they will ever have. Deborah says she is sorry for ruining Dexter’s life, Dexter says it was all his fault and then flashes back to the moment he and Deb met Harrison right after he was born in the very same hospital Deb seems to be dying in. It is a sobering moment to see Deb before she knew about Dexter’s “dark passenger.” She looks so happy and innocent, and audiences are reminded that yes, her life did change for the worse when she found out about Dexter’s killing tendencies. Still, we can’t hate Dexter. He has grown so much over the series, made mistakes and tried to remedy them, but good intentions don’t erase the fact that there have been more than a few innocent people who died to keep his secret safe.
