I forgot to say that I was 95% sure Deb poisoned herself at the beginning of the episode but probably only 20% now.

I thought this season felt tired and that they blew a great opportunity to end the series with Deb shooting Dex.

That would have been an ill-considered move, since there's at least one more season yet to come...

Not necessarily. It could have been Deb's decent into "The Code" and take over where Dexter left off. And Dexter could constantly visit and talk to Deb like their Dad does with Dex.

But I agree, they can't kill of the show's namesake with an entire season to go.

Did you read my post? I said end the series, not the season. That is, end the series right there with Deb killing Dex. Would have been perfect!

Not sure if I'm really interested in another season.

The most interesting thing about how this played out is that Dexter didn't kill LaGuerta... Deb did! If Dex hadn't killed Hannah's father earlier in the season, he would still have not violated his code. And Hannah's father was definitely not an innocent, so some arguments could be made there. Actually Deb is worse than Dex since she killed a true innocent.

Dex did kill an innocent in an earlier season. He killed that celebrity photog, when the real killer was his assistant. Also, I think there was one other one, too.

There was that guy in the restroom that Dexter appeared to beat to death. I guess he might have survived, but it did not look like it.

I thought that was a dream sequence.

No, Dexter actually beat that man with the anchor in real life, not a dream.

I can see why you are confused, though. After Rita's murder, Dexter got in his boat and was going to run away from it all. While he was piloting the boat, he closed his eyes and had a hallucination about Rita. But then he opened his eyes again, and later docked the boat at Jimbo's to fuel up, and then he met the rude guy inside, and later beat him to death with an anchor in the restroom after the guy said that his dead wife can suck his dick.

This was near the end of the first episode in season 5.

Dexter's next, and possibly last, season will start on June 30.

That seems a little earlier than normal.

I thought it was pretty obvious when she took the Xanax in her car that she was chugging a bunch...certainly more than one or two. There was a lot of "rattling" going on when she dumped them into her hand before popping them in her mouth and drinking water from a bottle...

i watched the last 4 eps back to back so the comments are based on that:

quinn in the bar and putting the gun in his gf's hand would leave his prints on the gun too wouldnt it? for all the talk of blood and prints i thought that was a silly hole. i do like how angel asked about the time lag and that quinn was forced to lie to his face. again proving he cannot be trusted

matthews definitely knows about dexter and i do think he was letting him know about how close she was to connecting everything. good job warning him!

i know that police radios have gps so assumed thats how deb knew to ask for it. you see it in law and order and other cop shows all the time, they say send a bus to my location and they never give the location

i hope angel doesnt disappear from the show. him not sitting in the lt. chair was always something i thought created some nice stress between him and deb. maybe they could make that into something later down the road.

i didnt like this season that dex changed and didnt kill hannah and was also showing signs of weakness. he's becoming not himself and whlie you can make a case for him 'evolving' into something, i prefer he remain a consistent killer.

holy cow how long has it been since we saw dexters 'daughter'? she looked 12 last i remember. i also hope the nanny continues with the next season and i always feel bad for her..she's constantly dumped on but never complains

In real life, if a couple of people touch an object like a gun, it's nearly impossible to lift a usable print.
