Dexter > Dexter Season Finale Review: The Ruined Reveal > Comments Page 2
The reason Travis did not take Harrison in the apartment, is because he had no idea who he or the nanny were until AFTER they left and he found the picture of Dexter holding the baby. Duh.
oh almost forgot please please dnt continue with the idea of deb and dex being an item more than brother and sister as there is nothing interesting about sblings having feelings for each other i beg dnt spoil a good show actually fire the person who came up with that idea we want strong detective work good killings not incest i stll love the show though hoping u will do e right thing

Isn't it amazing that negative reviews appear for series that show the negative side of extreme fudamentalist religion?
Okay, so maybe I'm reaching a bit but really, complaining that this season of Dexter was a terrible one is simply wrong.
By comparison of other seasons, yes its not great(especially when you compare it to great seasons on there own like season 4 or my personal fave season 2) but its ballsy, by having a serial killer who believes he is working for God it changes the dynamic of the show, remember we've had 1:simple serial killer, 2:dex himself and pyromaniac, 3:lunatic skinner, 4:a deranged family man serial killer, 5: group barrel girl killers and six? A man who believes hes working for God.
It was a gearshift, because remember every single main season killer dex has taken out has brought dexter further on in his human development, he sees parts of himself in each of them and improves himself to erase the part thats similar to the others.
Anyway, the elephant in
Notice how almost everyone who is bitching about how bad season six where are all disgusted by the dex-deb love drama... Just a thought.
Why are so many disgusted by the incest thing anyway? I know that it's a little creepy but we are talking about a show where our protagonist is a serial killer people!
Coming from someone who has watched every single episode, webcast and interview. I will gladly say, "SEASON SIX SUCKED BIG TIME" it just was not a good season. Plain and simple and people who liked that last season probably have not seen season 4 or any other season for that matter. The Deb/Dex love thing is just silly. However, for those of us that know that Jenn/Micheal were actually married and recently got a divorce. Now that is what makes it interesting. The idea that the writers might secretley be trying to get Jennifer (Deb) and Michael (Dex) back together is exciting. Now the whole Uncle Sam thing was confusing just like the Batista/Quinn thing and the "LT Morgan" thing. I enjoyed the acting but the storyline never seemed to make sense.
Now lets talk about season 4 of Dexter....BEST FREAKING SEASON EVER. John Lithgow was the most convincing villian ever. I have watched that entire season more than 3 times and every time, I get excited all over again. Not sure what to expect in
I agree with others that Season 6 is the worst season of Dexter yet...
I don't get why people are so shocked by the Deb/Dex thing. I am new to Dexter and i only started watching it about 6 months ago where i watched the whole series in about a week. Even before Season 6 i thought there sometimes was a weird vibe between them but i shrugged it off as just a close Brother/Sister relationship and hardly paid much attention to it
The first real red-flag, for me, is when Dexter is with the psychiatrist and he tells Dexter to think of a time when he's felt vulnerable and Dexter flashbacks to a bully saying "Hey Dex, You still fucking your sister"
There are other moments like Quinn saying something like "I dont want Deb to have to choose between you or me" and Dexter responds "She doesn't"
*Internal monoluge* "because it's never going to be YOU"
Another red-flag is when Debra is describing Lundy and her description of him sounds EXACTLY like Dexter & Brian "He's quiet, rea
Does this reviewer ever stop complaining about this show. For this past season you have been so repetitive and your reviews often completely miss the point of what is going on in the episode and often neglect to mention any other events happening in the episode. Please do us all a favour and stop reviewing Dexter because clearly all you want to do is criticize it.
I agree that 6 was messy. Reading so many comments on various websites, though admittedly not all those posted here, it seems like Brother Sam was forgotten by the end of the episode. He was a great character. He challenged Dexter in such an interesting way. It was sad to see the tumult of un-dexter-like action that ensued after his death, and scant and superficial mention of him thereafter. I wish he could have stuck around longer somehow, maybe even known Dexter's darkness from closer range.
And maybe all the better if he finally has someone to share at least the knowledge with, perhaps Deb. I liked Luman too and she would have been a good mother and wife to him.
OOPS! didn't realize other half of my comment got cut off as to why it makes no sense for Dexter to be evolving the way the writers are going....
He is not like Trinity - Trinity was darker because his own father was a cruel abusive man which he passed on to Trinity.....which is also repeating itself in Jonah. And he is not like his brother Rudi - who apparently was not fortunate enough to fall into a loving foster family like Dexter did. So Rudi and Trinity both reflect the darker experiences they had.
But Dexter was raised by a loving father, which has allowed Dexter to become one as well. Harry made the mistake of teaching Dexter how to kill and assuming that his darkness could not be healed. Even now Dexter sees that error......so why are the writers pushing him further toward darkness? If he sticks with his code and only takes out the trash that the system failed to do, thereby preventing further innocent deaths - he can still be the hero and the good guy. And maybe
Here's another thought.......
I don't know if anyone else has wondered..........why did Harry immediately save Dexter when their mother was killed and leave his brother behind? He wouldn't have likely known at that point if his brother was beyond saving. It seems to me that depending on the length of his relationship with Laura Moser.......isn't it possible it was because Dexter was actually his real son? Of course, that would change things and make Dex/Deb an incestuous relationship - and maybe it's discovery would balance things back toward brother and sister. hmmm.........
If they know what they're doing and keep it interesting, I have no problem with them exploring the Deb/Dexter thing. We all know that technically it is NOT incest and so may be quite natural for them to be attracted. She doesn't really seem his type though and not the mother he might want for Harrison - lol.
My problem is with the way they are evolving Dexter. I'm new to the show and just watched all the seasons online. It seems he went from following his code - which mostly entailed helping the cops solve the cases and only pulling out his tools in the cases that fell through the cracks. NOW he is actively trying to see that they don't solve the cases so that HE can handle them himself. Much more interesting the other way and would make him more like a Batman character.
I guess some would say that his dark passenger is evolving that way, but that makes no sense. He is not like Trinity - Trinity was darker because his own father was a cruel abusive man which he passed on to
@ Matt Richenthal - I think your critical views on this season is far too harsh as I personally loved each and every season of Dexter. Not once was I bored or thought that anything was contrived, terribly written or dragged out. Will always be a number one fan!
However, would also love for Lumen to come back on the show.
This was by far the worst season,the first truly bad season. Agree with your comments and add that Dexter's code used to have meaning; he was punishing criminals who'd gotten away with their crimes. This season he was racing to catch Doomsday before the police, even deliberately obstructing the police and causing further deaths as a result.
Brother Sam was the only good character introduced this year. Way too many soap opera subplots, Quinn wandering around such a mess because deb turned him down, Deb's promotion (c'mon), her shrink... If I felt that thevwriters were channeling Breaking Bad and deliberately turning Dexter into an evil person, that would be interesting, but it felt more like they have simply gotten very very sloppy and lazy in their plotting.
Also Travis was by far the least interesting villain since the show started. A religious fanatic. Yawn.
Agree. Season Six was a disjointed mess and didn't feel like a true continuation of the Dexter story. The logical inconsistencies aside, I never got the sense of internal conflict (Dexter fighting with his dark passenger) that was there in all of the others (even when the writers tried to bludgeon us with it by replacing Harry with his brother for two episodes).
As far as the Deb/Dexter attraction, it actually detracts from their personal bond. It seems contrived and makes it seem like Debra doesn't really view Dexter as a real brother after all.
I will watch the next season, but I really hope they do something to get away from the sloppy writing we saw in season six.
Have you all got amnesia? Were we watching the same show? six was a great season. Have you forgotten all the stuff with brother sam? thats an aspect to the arc of this season rhat you are all forgetting. Dex and Deb are not blood related. Harry's affair with Laura Moser took place after Dex was born. However it makes you feel, it is good and consistent writing. Have you forgotten that Deb was engaged to Dex's brother? Those overtones have been there from the beginning. They've always been a little too close. i think this was a great season. Not as good as four but not much worse than four either.
I am really disappointed with season 6, dialogs, plot, characters, and the final, I can not believe that this season was made for showtime... what happened!!!!! and the relation between Deb and Dexter Come on. really????
"Travis is literally feet away from Harrison in Dexter's apartment... only instead of snatching him (what, was he afraid of Jaime? Is she tougher than the cop on the roof he killed without hesitation?), he sneaks into the children's pageant and does the deed there. Why? Simply because the script called for it."
Travis didn't go to Dexter's apartment to kidnap anyone. He needed a place to stay after his previous location was filled with cops. He was clearly trying to avoid getting spotted. He didn't even know Harrison was Dexter's son until he saw a picture of them, at which point he figured he'd be the perfect "sacrifice" after already thinking he killed his dad, saying "So the beast (Dexter) has a son"
Seriously Mick season 4 was overrated? It was awesome. One of the best seasons of any series ever. And Matt Season 5 was not disappointing. It started a tad slow but once it got to where they wanted to go it was just a notch below season 4. I agree that season 6 was uneven. I loved the premiere but Travis was not done correctly or something. It just wasnt there. I loved Brother Sam and liked Deb finally caught him. Not sure I like the possibility of them together but I dont think that will happen. She has feelings for him but does nt mean he has the same for her. I would still like Lumen to return and play out as his true love who understands his Dark Passenger.
Haven't seen season 5 or 6, but I just saw season 4 and I have to say I think that's the worst season. Season 3 was also pretty meh, but season 4 is at least highly overrated. From what I've seen, possibly the most overrated piece of television I've ever encountered. lol. Cool villain though, with flaws.
I agree Dex and Deb should not have any romantic involvement.
@ me, Thanks for the explanation. It's been awhile since I watched those early seasons and my memory sucks. So Harry just felt sort of obligated to take Dexter in because of his relationship with Laura... but not fucked up little Brian.
@ idiots, personally, I was shocked when Dexter found Gellar in the freezer, revealing that Travis had done all that crazy shit alone. Maybe I'm just not as observant as others but I was kind of surprised that this dude called it "insulting", "transparent", and "terribly written".
Wow, go cry some more Matt. Maybe you should write the next season if you're so talented, hell maybe even direct it. Better yet, why not take on the role of Dexter since you know so much. Seriously, you're about the most butt hurt fan I've ever seen. If you don't like the way the show is heading, DON'T WATCH IT! The rest of us will continue enjoying great television.
Is everyone forgetting when Geller was found in the freezer? No one here can tell me they expected that, This series was about Dexter opening up his realm of thinking, its not all about him anymore he has a son. Maybe you should write for them, because clearly nothing is good enough for you.
I think everyone is over analysing. It's an entertaining tv show. That is all.
