Dexter Season Eight: The Final SeasonPosted: April 22, 2013
In My Humble Opinion: When Showtime made the official announcement that Season eight would in fact be the last season of Dexter, I felt like I just walked in on Rita in a blood-filled bath tub! I had been hearing that Season eight was going to be the last season of the show that follows vigilante serial killer Dexter Morgan, but have been holding out hope that there were at least two more seasons left. Dexter has been one of my favorite shows of recent years and I’m sorry to see it go. It’s hard to believe that the show first began back in December 2006 and will return for the final season’s premier on Sunday June 30th on Showtime…where has the time gone? The show has remained dramatic and engaging through its first seven seasons and will undoubtedly finish as strongly as it began. It’s packed full of great performances by all its actors, specifically Jennifer Carpenter who portrays Debra Morgan, Dexter’s sister. Well she’s kind of his sister…Dexter was adopted by Harry Morgan who didn’t exactly go through the normal adoption process to get Dexter. It’s a long story and for those of you that watch the show know what I’m talking about and to those of you that don’t, I strongly suggest taking advantage of that Showtime On Demand feature and catching up! As I said, I’m sorry to see it go but am very excited to have some questions answered and see how the storyline will wrap up. SPOILER: Will Debra be able to live with herself after killing LaGuerta in last season’s finale? Will she be able to keep protecting her brother knowing he is a serial killer? How will the return of Hanna McKay play into the final season? Will any characters from Dexter’s past come back for cameo appearances (those who are still alive anyway)? Will Batista be the one that eventually uncovers Dexter and Debra’s dark secret? So many questions that need to be answered. If you’re a devoted Dexter fan as I am, you most likely share in my disappointment that the show is ending, but also hopefully share in my enthusiasm that the final season will answer all questions and… is premiering earlier than usual. I’ve posted a little teaser of Season 8, hopefully you enjoy!
