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

Extreme right wing Republican jihad;-)
29 December 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Is there a religion without extremists? Or even one with rational advocates? Before watching season 6 of "Dexter," we re-watched seasons 1 through 5 and each of them was better, in my mind, than it had been before. However, with those so fresh in my mind, I'm looking forward to re-watching season 6 next year, because it seemed a bit lame in their shadow and I'm hoping it too will ripen. Only because "Dexter" is a MUST SEE does this last episode count as a cliff hanger. Deb's psychologist inspired notice of a possibly deeper feeling than sisterly toward Dex turns out to be an artifice, a foreseeable escape mechanism for the predicament that would have been a fait accompli just two seasons ago. Knowing that SHO has bought season 7 AND season 8 of "Dexter" mitigates their hoped for dramatic suspense of the final scene. Unless of course the show's name will be changed next year to "Debra!" Hmmmm, or DDK - Dexter and Debra, killers!
