    They have the original show writer from the 1st 4 seasons on New Blood, right? would explain a lot.

    If that happens I hope he admits to being the Bay Harbor Butcher. Doakes deserves have his name cleared!

    I just think it’s setting up that the ex solves the case. It’s been awhile since I read the books so I don’t remember how he died in them but him ending like that would be the most fitting end.

    Just watched Ep 1 of S8

    Forgot they skipped ahead 6 months and just glossed over Laguertta's murder. Should have picked up right after Deb shot her and gone from there

    This seems like the most logical way to tie this up. But getting from where we are to there in one episode seems hard to do.

    Not sure why they’d want to put a period on this story. Make a more palatable ending with the option to create more episodes in the future.

    Presumably police will find Campbells trophy bunker and the chief can be convinced into thinking he killed his own son.

    Harrison didn't look too comfortable with Shitty AMC Show--almost like holy shit this is not what I signed up for. Plus, right before Dexter stabbed him Kurt was all, "oh you're justifying your killing with some bullshit vigilante..." before his mouth got stuffed. I think Harrison is second-guessing his dad's code.

    For Ss and Gs, I think one of two scenarios plays out:
    1. Harrison kills the ex/police chief when she gets too close to solving it. Dexter freaks out because she didn't fit the code, they have a huge fight and something bad happens; or
    2. Harrison kills Dexter because he thinks the code is bullshit. Much less likely, but hey why not.

    Dex escaped so many better cops, only to be caught by this bungling small town cop in bumfuck NY.

    haven’t watched the latest episode because I want to watch the last 2 right after each other so I’m going to leave the thread. But, I will say this, Dexter has made a lot of mistakes that he wouldn’t have in the past. Other than Doakes and LaGuerta no one suspected Dexter of anything. That’s not the case here. She has been suspicious of him since Harrison showed up. They have set it up from the start that he would get caught imo.

    He always was a touch sloppy, now he doesn’t have a big ass ocean and a job in a police department to cover them after the fact.

    dexter was not sloppy. He was legit anal retentive with OCD. There might have 2-3 times he was sloppy and almost got caught. He wouldn’t have done any of the things he’ has done this season.

    i assume torrance? I’m thinking of rewatching the season again before I watch the finale to get the full effect at once.

    I liked it. It at least made sense, but probably needed another 20-30 minutes to breathe.

    I would have loved an epilogue. Show news coverage of how Dexter was the Bay Harbor Butcher. Doakes getting absolved. Angela getting credit for solving both that and Kurt’s murders. Whatever Harrison goes on to do ect.

    I feel like the better ending would have been Dexter turning himself in knowing that Harrison isn’t like him and can go on living life in Iron Lake. Instead Harrison is like him by killing Dexter as retribution/punishment.

    Still liked the season overall and that’s more just a personal preference.

    This is my thought as well. Much more satisfying ending. Season wasn’t perfect but I’m glad they did it and I’m glad I watched it.

    So did Logan accidentally shoot himself when he and Dexter struggled over the gun?

    Man I was highly disappointed in that ending. Again. Seemed too rushed. No face to face with Batista. Needed another 30 mins.

    Honestly, I’m pretty upset about that ending. Totally went off the rails after killing Logan.

    Agreed, but doesn't ruin the rest of the episodes. Knocked from like an 8 to a 7 for me.

    Can't believe they just teased Batista.
