Disappointing Moralist Conclusion
9 August 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Dexter goes to the airport with Harrison to meet Hannah and she tells that Elway is stalking her at the lobby. Dexter uses the airport security system to get rid of Elway but the airport is closed. Matthews calls Dexter and tells that Debra has been shot by Saxon and he heads to the hospital with Harrison; the doctor tells that she is recovering well. The hurricane Laura is coming to Miami and Dexter decides to travel to Jacksonville with Hannah and Harrison using an evacuation bus, but he decides to visit Debra again. Dexter sees Saxon but Angel arrests him but he learns that Debra will stay in coma for the rest of her life. Dexter finds a way to eliminate Saxon in his cell in Miami Metro but feels responsible for the death of everyone he has loved and takes an ultimate decision.

The last episode of Dexter could not be more disappointing with a moralist conclusion. Debra has killed LaGuerta so the writers decide to kill her also. Dexter feels responsible for the death of those that he has ever loved and prefers to leave Harrison alone with an unstable serial-killer in a different country and to commit suicide. The worst, her reappears alive in another American state without any explanation. I could not even imagine a worse and more incoherent conclusion for this excellent series. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Lembra-se dos Monstros?" ("Remember the Monsters?")
