Storyline

Stuck in the ocean miles from shore, Dexter is rescued by an old boat carrying illegal immigrants to the US. He even manages to render them a service. Once ashore, he heads home hoping to figure out where and when Travis will stage his last tableau. Travis has holed up in a small house and has killed the occupants. While he's away, the police show up and Dexter has something of a surprise waiting for him. Dexter makes it to son Harrison's school recital only to have Travis take the child. Meanwhile, Debra has a plan to catch Travis and gets LaGuerta's support for her plan. Debra also comes to terms with her feelings for Dexter. In his final confrontation with Travis, Dexter has him tied down on his execution table. Someone walks in just as he's committing the deed. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] I guess it's fitting I end up where I've left so many others. I only wonder if the world will be a better place without me. It's wrong what people say about dying. I'm not flashing back over my life - over the lives I've taken. I'm thinking about the life I'll miss. Harrison, I'll miss watching my son grow up.

The Son, The Father, The Serial-Killer... and The Brother
23 July 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter is adrift in the middle of the ocean but is rescued by a boat transporting illegal immigrants to Miami. When he arrives home, he does not have any idea where Travis might be. But he is summoned to a crime scene in a house where Travis was hidden after killing the dwellers. Then he goes with Harrison to a recital about Noah's Ark at school and Travis kidnaps his son to sacrifice him during the eclipse staging his last tableau. Debra is supported by LaGuerta in her plan of putting one police officer on the top of each skyscraper of Miami. But Dexter rescues Harrison and defeats Travis, bringing him to a killer room at the old church. But he has an unexpected visitor while killing the Doomsday Killer.

"This Is the Way the World Ends" makes the Sixth Season worth with the last scene that will certainly affect the life of Dexter and mostly Debra's life. What will be her attitude after witnessing Dexter getting rid of Travis? Will she suspect that her stepbrother is a serial-killer? Will she protect or arrest him? My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "É Assim Que o Mundo Acaba" ("This Is the Way the World Ends")
