Next week’s season finale of Dexter, aptly titled “Surprise, Motherf***er!” will be a must-see for those of us who have been fans for seven seasons.
Given we know next season is the last, it’s time to start putting the cards on the table.
Meanwhile in regard to the character’s ultimate fate, Michael C. Hall told Salon, ”I imagine Dexter is going to get caught one way or the other,” he said. “And by that I mean, can we really expect him, at this point, to walk into the sunset? Or get off without a blemish on his conscience or character?
“In a way, he is already caught,” said Hall. “Once [his wife] Rita (Julie Benz) dies, he is caught. Once [his sister] Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) is in on the secret, he is caught. And what he’s caught by is the undeniable fact that how he conducts himself has an effect on more than just him and his victims.
“As far as whether he goes to jail, or gets put to death, or gets hit by a bus or whatever it might be, I can’t say.”
