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.

Oh my Goodness
20 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

Did that really just happen! This season's Dexter has been out of this world and I can assure you the ending is explosive...literally can't believe what I just saw. Excited about season 7.

I have to say, for a fairly mediocre actor, Colin Hanks has been decided mesmerising in this season of Dexter and Edward James Olmos has not been Adama! The pace of the season has been just right and the plot twists (in a show infamous for this) have been so unexpected. I can't recommend this season highly enough, and you really get to appreciate just how and why Michael C Hall has won a golden globe!

Give it a whirl. The season finale will blow you away. I wasn't completely sure how it would end, but really, where do the writers go from here?
