Dammit Dexter!

Nov. 16: What TV series finale are you still upset about and why?

You may have noted in an earlier TV themed post where I mentioned that I had given up watching Dexter while the show was still a few seasons out. I initially loved Dexter, it was incredibly well-done and entertaining. (Side note: this show got me obsessed with my French press coffee maker just from watching the opening credits.) Over time, I lost interest in it completely, my husband held on for a bit longer than I did; but even he dropped out before the show had wrapped up. For him, it was more the pregnancy and subsequent birth of our daughter that prevented him from watching than issues with the show itself. When we moved, we did not get Showtime, so the chances of my husband catching up were pretty slim.

At some point, Dexter landed on Netflix and the Mister was able to pick up where he left off. I still had zero interest in it; for me, the best part of the story had been told and the show had run its course. I mentioned to a coworker that my husband was watching the show and how uninterested I was in it. She replied, “Yeah, and the way it ended! Just horrible, right?” So, now I’m intrigued. I told her that I don’t plan on watching it, so just tell me what happens. After she is done describing the trainwreck of a finale, I kind of can’t believe it because it sounds so far-fetched. Then I texted my husband to make sure I watch the last 2 episodes with him, I had to see it with my own eyes.

When I watched the series finale for this show, I mourned for the time my husband lost by investing in that storyline. Nothing made sense! He just lets his kid think he’s dead and allows him to be raised by some crazy woman? And now he’s…a lumberjack? The worst part: Deb! She deserved better, she really did. I’m not saying that she didn’t have to die, but to have Dexter take off with her body was horribly selfish. There were other people who loved her, who deserved to be able to mourn her properly.

This show started off great, better than great honestly. It all fell apart, which isn’t unusual for long-running shows, but the finale of Dexter was insult to anyone who wasted their time hoping to see it all come together in the end.
