Awesome season! Can't wait for the next.

What do rogues and noobs have in common?
-They both pick locks
As cool as the final unveiling was the build-up and coherence of this season was lackluster to say the least.
I don't understand, Season 1, 2, 3 and even 4 kept me on knife's edge for almost the entire 20+ episodes of each season. But ever since season 5...it seems like the writers have gotten lazy and lost their touch.
Not the best season. The plot was fine, but it was badly executed. All the other seasons the "bad guy" have had some sort of effect on Dexter some way or the other. This season was just about Dexter hunting Travis, there were no deeper meaning or anything that caused Dexter to think any deep thoughts or question his way of life.
Sorry, but no season can undo the atrocity that season 3 was. THAT was a terrible season.
This season wasn't bad. I liked Mos Def's character, but think it would have been cooler if he played a larger role.
I agree with some points on the characters feeling half-assed and lacking. But it didn't bother me too much.
I found the whole season to be very underwhelming. Asides from Mos Def's character no-one was really worth watching. When (if) I eventually decide to watch Dexter again I'm just gonna splice the last few seconds of this season on to the end of last season to make it look as if they didn't cop out of Deb finding out about Dexter last year so I can wipe this season from my memory.
After some initial optimism for the season I found in the end this one fell pretty flat.
Starting from the last episode, the scenes with Dexter, his hands out like Jesus on the cross. That was ridiculous. It looked bad and felt really hoaky. As if that wasn't enough they make him say "I am a father, a son, a serial killer" while making the sign of the cross. Good lord... I thought they were joking. Throw in a totally out of place Yoda impression from Vince for no reason at all.. I mean.. wtf.
Also, this whole buisness with Deb being in love with Dexter is retarded. They built her character up so much to be a kind of badass, to throw this sillyness in there is not what the story needed. What it needed was the smart writing that we saw in earlier seasons. They're really just making every character be over-ly flawed and almost a comical version of themselves from previous seasons.
The only character who isn't going off the rails is Anderson. Don't know who that is? The new black detective that has zero connection to any plot or story.
Sorry but I was hoping for more. It's not terrible, but it's on the steep decline. The big reveal at the end could help redeem the series, but they have to do away with a lot of nonsense and get back to the roots of what made the show great.
best is the last season i think
I still think Season 4 was the best, as do most people. But I really enjoyed this season as well.
I think your going a bit ott tbh....
If Vince doing a Yoda impression is one of the things you hated then surely they couldnt have done much wrong....it was a 3 second clip, I agree that the dexter thing with the cross was a little cheesy and un-needed but again It didnt take away that the ending was epic as fuck for me, It was one of the better season of Dexter imo.
An interesting thing on IMBD, Season 7 episode 1 is called Doakes Returns, ofc this is subject to change but that could be an interesting start to a season...

The finale is very easy to explain for him... he was targetted in the Pool of Fire (for the police station incident), and then defended his child afterward.
I think its a safe assumption we will see at least a small time skip though.
For anyone that hasn't read the books Deb knows all about Dexter from the very first book. All they really need to do with this is have Dexter explain it to her like he did in the books.
If you don't want to read the books basically Dexter explains to Deb all about what Harry did and why. As the books go on she copes with it but is very suspicious of his activity or if a new serial killer pops up she trys to get Dexters "insight" about the killing. It will not be hard to tie what happened in at the end of S6 to the story.
As far as seasons go
season 2 > season 4 > season 1 > season 6 > season 5 > season 3 at least IMO
All i was thinking was ''Please don't kill Harrison!''
Not really been watching Dexter since the start but did watch the last two seasons I believe and I don't think the latest is that good, I don't think having a heart or being religious really fits someone like Dexter nor does having a son, it all feels very fake and so does this "relationship" with Deb, infact when they are eating noodles I had to skip it, watching that just felt retarded and so fake.
In my opinion I see Dexter as a heartless killer who says very little so when he has to start talking more and being religious/having a heart it's like watching two different shows, I'd much rather they done away with the son and let him die so he can stop acting like such a queer and get back to killing people and let Deb find out and maybe even help him in some way but this whole happy families and religious stuff pretty much sucked and even though I did watch every episode this season and never felt they are anything bad, I never felt they are anything special or exciting either.
I'm not saying that I agree with the fact that they made Deb fall in love with Dexter. Personally I think it is really dumb, but it sounds like you missed the main point of that scene, it was the reveal of Debs feelings.
Used to watch dexter, saw seasons 1 and 2. Hoping to see the next ones soon, sucks netflix won't let me instant stream the seasons. It was SOOO sad seeing Doakes die in season 2...victim of circumstances
