Dexter Series Finale Recap: A Terrible End

Dexter draws to a close. And we are angry at how bad it was.

  • S.08
  • Ep.08
  • 'Are We There Yet?'

It doesn’t feel like we’re approaching the end of the series, and that's a bad thing. 

  • S.08
  • Ep.03
  • 'What’s Eating Dexter Morgan?'

In what’s shaping up to be a fantastic end to the series, this is the best episode of the season so far. 

  • S.08
  • Ep.02
  • 'Every Silver Lining…'

So far, this season is all about the ladies in Dexter’s life: the mysterious Dr. Vogel and the delirious Debra. 

  • S.07
  • Ep.11
  • 'Do You See What I See?'

LaGuerta, Hannah, and Deb all know Dexter's secret. This can't end well. 

  • S.07
  • Ep.10
  • 'The Dark…Whatever'

With just three episodes left in the penultimate Dexter season, you’d think we could see the finish line from here. 

  • S.07
  • Ep.06
  • 'Do the Wrong Thing'

As long as it’s been since Dexter dispatched a bad guy, it’s been way longer since he got laid. 

  • S.07
  • Ep.01
  • 'Are You…?'

Last night’s episode was more than a season opener — it was really the beginning of an extended 24-episode finale. 

  • S.06
  • Ep.12
  • 'This Is the Way the World Ends'

"Season 6 of Dexter has become When Debra Learned Her Brother Was a Killer, a.k.a. When Debra Also Realized She Wants to Make Sex With Her Brother." 

  • S.05
  • Ep.10
  • 'In the Beginning'

"I'm still shocked when confronted with the depth of evil that exists in this world." 

  • S.05
  • Ep.03
  • 'Practically Perfect'

Improvisation is good for sketch comics, jazz musicians, and 'MacGyver,' but not so much for serial killers. 

  • S.04
  • Ep.11
  • 'Wish You Were Here'

An episode that features a recurring character dying in a pool of blood would have to be good ... right?  

  • S.04
  • Ep.10
  • ' Lost Boys'

Trinity’s patterns — and his family life — prove even more complicated than they had seemed. 

  • S.04
  • Ep.07
  • 'Slack Tide'

A shocking turn in the case of the sleazy photographer turns this season upside down. 

  • S.04
  • Ep.06
  • 'If I Had a Hammer'

Revelations about Trinity — in particular, his love of baths. 

  • S.04
  • Ep.03
  • 'Blinded by the Light'

Hopefully the Trinity Killer will bludgeon his third victim soon so his mother issues can balance out Dexter’s daddy issues.  

  • S.03
  • Ep.11
  • 'I Had a Dream'

Is it considered a spoiler if you reveal a plot detail that everyone saw coming for weeks and weeks? 

  • S.03
  • Ep.09
  • 'About Last Night'

This season has been all about Dexter's crash course in parenting. First, he learned he's going to be a dad. This week, Miguel emerged as his full-blown sulky wayward teenage son. 

  • S.03
  • Ep.08
  • 'The Damage a Man Can Do'

This week we see a side of Dexter we haven't seen before: teacher. Also: moron.
