Surprise surprise, Hannah has a magic potion that can induce nonfatal seizures and unconsciousness. Oh, and it apparently also makes the hospital security go into a temporary coma as they allow a murder suspect to break restraints and waltz out of the hospital. I actually laughed out loud when Deb shot LaGuerta since she needlessly complicated the situation by shooting LaGuerta with her own fucking service weapon. And unless they pick it up next season, the entire fucking Koshka Brotherhod / Quinn storyline was a red herring (or poorly written subplot).
I've seen too much of this show to not watch the final season. But I don't think I'll ever be able to enjoy it as I once did. This whole season I never thought for a fucking second that Dexter could get caught. I only watched the finale to see what would happen to Hannah. They decided she'd live, but the writers weren't good enough to think of a clever (or logical) way to make that happen. The only questions left for next season: (1) Is Miami Metro to figure out LaGuerta's death and/or discover her evidence on Deb/Dex? [Hint: probably not]; and (2) will Hannah return as a lover and/or Big Bad? [Hint: probably depends on Yvonne Strahovski's fame in 2013].
About the only thing I think this show has going for it is that since Season 8 is the confirmed final season, they will finally have the freedom to make Dexter fallible.
Of course, the Koshka Brotherhood (though it appears to be the main plot with Ray Stevenson) was kind of a subplot for Dexter's changing and learning curve plot...
There were several main- oder subplots if you want to split them up..
I'm pretty sure the Series will end with Dexter, Harrison and Hannah happily together on their Farm in Argentinia.. It's the only thing that makes sense..
The whole season was a build-up to show Dexter changing from a fake life, to a real life and love.. a life without hidding (in regards to both Deb & Hannah).... the meaning of love in all their forms..... and the possibility of a "normal" future..
They admitted it before this season started, that this season will have a plot that will span from S7 to S8.... leaving it to be some kind of a double-season...Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
So this season ends with Hannah escaping to Argentinia, leaving Dexter the plant which tells him she is starting a farm there and will be waiting for him there, if he is still "sure" about her...
I mean, she didn't cut a deal, because she's in love with him... she didn't try to murder Deb a second time... She just escapes...
This episode even had Harrison mentioning that he's missing her... And not forgetting the explanation of the "survival of the fittest" theme in this episode
Before this season started I thought that the official re-opening of the Bay Harbour Butcher case would be the seasons ending.. didn't see that shooting coming..
But it was clear once Dex has this Estrada? guy on his table and had his talk..
It was a) to explain why Hannah did it,...... b)why Dexter plans to do it ........ and c) why Deb actually did it..
damn, another year of waiting Edited by Mariooo - 12/17/12 at 3:47am
