Recap

The season four finale of Dexter was billed as a game-changed, and, wow, it didn't disappoint.

First, Deb confronted Dexter with the news that she found out his biological mother was Laura Moser and his brother was the Ice Truck Killer. But Dexter said he had no idea about any of that and it led to a very nice moment between Deb and Dex.

From there, Deb interviewed the abducted 10-year old boy and he described the Four Walls/One Heart logo on the van in which Arthur took him. This led the police to matching Four Walls volunteers with locales around the country where murders had taken place - and to Arthur Mitchell. They raided his house, but Arthur was gone. He was seemingly free, in his Mustang, when Dexter tracked him down and set him up on his table.

The pair bonded, like only serial killers can, and Arthur seemed almost at peace with his fate. Fate. He kept using that word, in fact. He kept saying this was all part of God's plan. Dexter said he didn't accept that and sliced up Arthur Mitchell like he was another victim. But we all know he wasn't.

When Dexter returned home, he and the viewers got the shock of a lifetime: Harrison was crying in the bathroom, covered in blood... and Rita was lying in a pool of blood in the bathtub. The episode, and the season, ended with Dexter carrying Harrison away, just as Harry carried away Dexter so many years ago.

The Trinity killer tries to make his escape in a vintage Mustang a la Steve McQueen in The Getaway

I see where this is going, if you are not planning on reading the novels and dont mind reading spoilers about it go wiki Dexter and read the differences between the novel and the show, then you'll see what I mean.
I think next season will be some years after, when Harrison is already a kid while Dexter keeps doing his thing and raising all the kids, you know what goes after if you read the books or decide to read spoilers in wikipedia.

Another possibility is that Dexter's world becomes unglued and HE decides to "get away" after finishing off Arthur. Each of the past season finales ended with Dexter either ending the main plot by killing the main serial killer that he has a personal connection with (killing Brian & Lila)or he starts a major chapter that dramatically changes his life (his wedding day/preparation for fatherhood). Perhaps they'll both happen next week! I'm definitely pumped for the finale!!

I WAS JUST THINKING, THE TITLES MEAN SOMETHING IN EACH EPISODE. THE FINAL EPISODE TITLE IS THE GETAWAY. SINCE POLICE ALREADY THINK THE TRINITY KILLER WAS THE TRUCK DRIVER AND IS DEAD AND RATINGS ARE BOOMING WITH JOHN LITHGOW DOES HE GET AWAY?
