This is shortly after the protective detail on Deb's room is inexplicably absent when Saxon approaches? Yet somehow Saxon need not ever even get to Deb, as a **** BLOOD CLOT is what kills her?
And all storylines surrounding Masuka, Batista, Jamie, and Quinn are completely ignored, and their entire purpose in this season was simply fluff?
And the ongoing theme of the whole series focuses on Dexter's transition from monster to human, such that he gets to a point where he no longer has a desire to kill, yet because Deb died as a result of Dexter's FORMER actions, he can no longer be with his family and has to live a life of solitude? What was the point of the character change then?
Look, i get that Breaking Bad set the bar high, but this is way beyond that. They took this show in such an awful direction and ended it so poorly that they gave the entire series a major black eye, which the show will be remembered for way more than the good seasons.
this sounds like every other season
-weak secondary story lines
-abandoning all realism
-total cop out endings that make everything incredibly low stakes
-just nothing new or interesting
dexter was never that good of a show. season 1 thrived off of a new, interesting premise and michael c hall. but the rest of the cast was terrible, and there was nothing of note going on other than dexter's plot - which involved a dance sequence to "slow ride". because that's normal. season 4 took a risk with rita's death. it was the only singular exceptional moment of the entire series. and they never did anything like that again, from what i gather. that was the biggest mistake - avoiding change and risk. it was always lather rinse repeat.
