    Interesting. This would increase the divide between Dexter and Debra. This divide has fluctuated this whole season. She seemed to see things Dex's way for an episode or two.

    I don't see anyway for Hannah to make it to season 8 unless season 8 is really just a continuation of this season. Most seasons have a climax. I don't see where this one is heading.

    Agreed. That would be the lamest ending ever.

    I think Dexter would find a way to kill himself first before that would happen. That is a possibility for a conclusion. I just don't see him sitting in a coffee shop eating a meal with his family ala Tony Soprano.

    I don't see her making it to the next season either. Either Deb or Dexter will have to kill her. Deb will probably kill her out of jealousy and rage and once she has murdered someone she can't feel very much superior to Dex.

    Or at some point she'll have an easy shot on Hannah she can take, but really shouldn't, but does, and she can still justify it somehow.

    :confused: How would La Guerta know that anyone disappeared if they were never reported as missing?

    My dream Dexter ending has him showing up in Russia or some other far flung location where can start all over... probably won't happen with Harrison around.

    This season started out so good and has taken a turn into the crapper. They should have done a slow build-up to Isaak as the main bad guy, had him kill Hannah and go after Deb/Harrison. They could have even had him flirt with Dexter or make a pass at him :)

    As it is, the rest of the season is blah after they killed Isaak. I sure hope there isn't a shock ending like Dexter ending up arrested as the cliffhanger (which is where I think they are going).

    When they try to follow up with him about the tip he left they will not be able to find him. They know Dexter is dating his daughter and the babysitter saw him with Dexter.
    But, with the way the writing on this show is, I bet his disappearance is never noticed. Kinda like the lab guy who nobody has missed.

    Lots of ways for that to happen if they want it to.

    I like this! To bad they can't have move in next door to anyone watching. (Oh sh**. Am I next? [Not that I have done anything to qualify me for Dexter's code.])

    I have been wondering about this also. Seems like to big of a loose end to just ignore. I wonder if this will come back and haunt Dexter. i.e. another disappearance that he is linked to that isn't his fault.

    The season started out great, I had thought they would prolong the whole "Deb trying to figure out Dex" thing but they did that quickly. But the past few have been not good at all. But if La Guerta gets it in the next 2 weeks I'll be happy. Don't like the character or the actress.

    I flipped on the tv last night, and the scene where Dexter has the arsonist on the table was playing. I watched it and am confused. It seemed like he heard the cops pull up in the driveway just before he made the kill. Then the next scene has the cops walk into the room and see the guy on the floor. How did Dexter get rid of all that plastic and other acoutrements so damn fast (and still slip away unnoticed)? Plus where was his car?

    Personally I am hoping Dexter does get caught and go to jail. I don't think he would kill himself because of Harrison (and step kids). And that would lead to a final season with Dexter killing off murderers in jail using makeshift tools. I would find that way more interesting to watch than what has become of this season since he banged Hanna on the kill table.

    That's not what happened. If you did hear the cops pull in, it was probably an editing error. He called Deb and re-arranged the room, and then some time later they showed up.

    Yeah, the guy claims it's not his fault, it's Bobby's fault. Dexter tells him he's not a kid anymore and he has to take responsibility for himself. As Dexter is holding the knife up for the kill, he realizes that if he's blaming this guy for doing things spurred by childhood trauma, that means Dexter has to accept blame for his own killing. There's a quick cut that shows the police pulling up to the house. If you weren't paying attention, I can see how someone might think when Dexter said "F&*#," it was because the police were pulling up instead of him realizing his mistake going after the arsonist. Presumably he drugged the guy again, cleaned up, got out, and called the police.

    Hannah's father going missing is not something that they can realistically feel suspicious about. The guy has no fixed address and is, by his own admission, on the run from his gambling debts. The fact that the police can't find him to question him shouldn't cause anyone's head to turn. Certainly it can't be considered even the smallest bit of evidence against Dexter.

    The lab guy is another story. We know why he's not missed by any of the main characters: the PD fired him and the nanny dumped him. But doesn't he have anyone else in his life, who would report him missing? Even his landlord? I guess he would be reported to missing persons, and they might not realize that he worked at the blood lab in Homicide. No particular reason the Homicide squad should know about a particular missing person. Still if Missing Persons were doing their job they'd find out about the nanny and ask her questions... whatever. We'll just have to wait and see. I'm not holding my breath that will come back up though.

    Possibility that it might come back and bite Hannah.

    They have to find the truck, yes?

    He appeared to be a wealthy antisocial type. I doubt he had a landlord. The only people that one might think would miss him are his gaming colleagues.

    I'm surprised the local comic book shop hasn't put him on milk cartons by now... :D

    It's getting ridiculous on this forum when people here expect Miami Homicide to investigate ashes from crematoriums and missing persons who aren't even reported as missing.

    C'mon folks, let's get real!

    Ah, thanks for the explanation. The sequence of events threw me off. I guess I shouldn't fold laundry while Dexter is on. :D

    You've got to take responsibility for yourself. Don't blame it on the laundry! :D
