So many plot holes in that last episode. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
How the fuck do you stab someone at a gun range? Wouldn't they have a ton of security and cameras? Victor is shot in the stomach--doomed to die--yet remains coherent for HOURS? Dexter doesn't consider that Yurg might kill Hannah when Victor never touched base? Dexter was "never scared' the million times in this show that his family members have been in mortal danger?

It was disappointing to see Victor go. By far the most interesting character this season. At this point, I couldn't give less of a fuck about most of the B-characters; the subplots are laughably undeveloped and/or uninteresting.

My wild-ass theories that I wish were true: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Fire-investigator is too obvious even for this show; Doakes is the arsonist. Matthews (racist old police captain) knows about Dexter and is trying to sabotage LaGuerta's investigation.

As in, back-from-the-dead Doakes?

Doakes was a cop who found out about Dexter in season 2 (?). Dex tied him up in a cabin with body bags. Then his crazy girlfriend Lila blew the cabin up. Doakes was presumed dead when they found his dna and some body parts at the explosion.

We all know that. What we ask you is whether you mean that he in fact did not die and now, years later, returns and randomly kills guys instead of directly going after Dexter?
I actually give you a 15% chance that you are right. I personally wouldn't have thought of it, but it makes at least some sense (with the current LaGuerta development etc.). Unrealistic? Yes. But that's not always the strength of Dexter as a series.

My biggest peeve with this season is their refusal to show Hannah McKay's tits.

To be fair, I did categorize that idea as a "wild ass theory" that I "wished" were true (but probably isn't). I based the theory on the title of the finale ("Surprise, Motherfucker!") and the fact that in Dexter-verse, Doakes could have survived the explosion and been "re-born by fire". It's much more likely that the finale will just be that LaGuerta or someone else finally connects the dots to finger Dexter as the BHB and exonerate Doakes.

It is strange that they convinced Yvonne Strahovski to press her naked body against Michael C. Hall, but full frontal was out of the question.

Yeah, like I said, even if I don't really like the idea, it seems somewhat logical. They can't just introduce a completely new villain in episode 9/12, it would have to connect to the past episodes (and it does, see LaGuerta). Nonetheless, it could have been the main villain for the entire series and not just squeezed in four episodes. Seems odd.

Probably builds into next season and hopefully its the last one.

WARNING: SPOILERS

I won't bother spoiler-tagging because I think the only people who read this thread still watch the show.

Well, so much for the Doakes-as-arsonist theory. A pretty boring episode overall.

It's pretty funny how sloppy the writing for this show has become. There are still a ton of loose ends that I doubt will ever be mentioned again:
  1. The kills are no longer stealthy and elaborate - Dexter is Superman and can pretty much kill anyone anywhere anytime.
    • I mentioned the ridiculous shooting range stabbing of last week.
    • This time he moves Mr. McKay onto the boat--presumably concealed in some type of luggage, and capture on marina security footage. And presumably the footage would show Dex leaving the boat empty handed. And presumably someone like LaGuerta would check marina security footage.
    • There's also the matter of his unmasked conversation with the Arsonist, whose story will hardly sound like the ramblings of a madman when he can describe being tied down like Travis Marshall and give the sketch artist a picture of Dexter...
  2. It's also the stupid little things that are taken for granted. I enjoyed watching Dexter have to disguise and make time for his actions in earlier seasons, but now it seems to me that logic has been largely abandoned to give more screen time to emotional monologues.
    • I can accept that there's some time lapse in the episodes, but it really seems like Jamie nannies Harrison 24/7. Any and every time Dex needs to bolt for hours on end with no notice, it's assumed she'll take care of everything.
    • Dexter is almost never shown doing work in his lab anymore. Again, it's probably another circumstance of time lapse. But the guy is always shown ducking out of the office or getting texted a crime scene location while spending the entire day fucking around outside the office. Finally Masuka mentioned something to Deb along the lines of "hey notice how I'm here and Dex is MIA?"
    • I understand that a character has to evolve over 7 seasons, but Dexter has gone from full-blown sociopath to having an emotional epiphany every damn week. What hooked me on the show years ago was how funny it was listening to the emotionless Dexter navigate his work and "personal" life through monologue and awkward-as-fuck conversations. This season Dexter falls in love-- cheesy meet-cute and all (dropping the swab? are you fucking kidding me?)---and proceeds to retcon, hard. Perhaps the most ridiclous example was in this week's episode where he "debunks" his Dark Passenger in about 24 hours and seems to be completely fine with it.

At this point I'm just waiting for the inevitable cliffhanger season finale that will carry into season 8. My wild guesses are that either (1) Dexter is fingered as BHB and spends Season 8 escaping or "clearing his name", or (2) someone like Hannah or Deb dies and spends next season on a no-holds-barred revenge bender. Whatever happens, I just hope it's interesting. I'm sure this show has had countless plot holes throughout the years, but I didn't really care because it was fun to watch. Toward the end of this season they stick out to me like a sore thumb.

Oh, and Season 8 will be the final season.

We wanted to end it this year, but the network convinced us that it would be best to do it in two years. In some ways, this is a two-season series-ender. We have worked that out and know where it's going to end. Next year will definitely be the last year of Dexter. Absolutely.
