I hope I'm not the only one who still watches this show. Tonights episode was amazing.

This season finnaly seems like the bounce back the show needed. Definetely the best since Season 4.

I've been pretty pleased with the show as a whole this year too. I think a lot of it is because it's been so heavy on Dex and Deb, who are really the most fleshed out characters in the show's stable. And then the side characters they are using most, Quinn and LaGuerta, are probably the next most complete characters. Masuka is a cartoon and should be used as such, and has. And Batista too is pretty much a cardboard cutout of a character, and he's been pretty limited too.

I haven't liked the Russian guy as much as most I guess. He's almost not evil enough. I knew that victim was his boyfriend after probably half an hour too for some reason. I feel like the Laguerta plot with three episodes to go is going to be great. And it's gonna put Deb right in the middle of it. And Hannah McKay has been the best of the Dex confidant characters by a pretty wide margin. Much better than Lumen, or the French chick in season two, or the god awfull Jimmy Smits character.

I agree with everything you said. Especially with the Russian guy. When he was in prison for killing all of the guys in the bar, I was thinking ohshit dex is in trouble, this guy is a mean dude. But they ended up working together, even though I was expecting a big showdown. But I am excited to see how close Laguerta gets to Dex.

Matthews knows something is up... which is why he went back to laguerta. Dexter's name was obviously the trigger.
He was close friends with Harry and swore to protect his legacy and his kids (deb/dexter).

so i could see him possibly knowing about dexter and wants to protect him... or he has his own suspicions about dexter...
and as well, Matthews was one of the last persons to talk to Harry before harry killed himself :o.



i still think laguerta is going to die at the end of this season

My prediction is Debra kills Laguerta to protect Dexter.

I came online just to post about Dexter! This episode was awesome and this season is refreshing after two let down seasons. I think Isaak is one of the best villains on the show, finally someone who has some depth to him.

Isaak has been on the show for handful of episodes and already has more influence on Dexter than anyone else not named Harry.

Ray Stevenson is a good actor, and he brought some depth to his character. I assumed Victor was his son...

sad to see him go.

That was my guess as well.

Also did anybody think Hannah made a face at the end of the last episode when Dexter was professing his love or whatever? She seemed like she was thinking "wtf" to me.

If you don't believe anything big has happened so far, then you're watching the wrong show. Maybe you should stick to shows like Law and Order

I think LaGuerta is gonna die this season, she's figured out Dexter might be the Bay Harbor Butcher. Here's hoping Deb kills her.

It was interesting to see Dex dump The Code for Hannah's father. I gotta say, the Hannah character has been a really pleasant surprise. She is by far the best of the characters that have been sent to open Dexter up. It's a pretty long list. The French chick in season 2. Jimmy Smits. The wife. Lumen. It's been a long list of flops really. Hannah has let him really open up. And throw in the exposure to Deb, and you're getting a lot more from Dex than we have in the past.

And the chick who plays Hannah, in addition to being rediculously hot, has been one of the better performances in the show as well. Her melt down last night was way better than 90% of what we see on the show. Usually we get something closer to the abysmally flat character of her father. A performance so bad it was actually uncomfortable to watch.

Every year they say this is the last season, but it seems like it's going to be tough to tie up Hannah, LaGuerta, and even Quinn's goofy subplot all in these last few episodes (the relationship between Quinn and Deb is retarded too now. A year ago she was engaged to the guy. Now he's getting shot over his russian stripper girlfriend and all she's got is a shake of the head). The LaGuerta thing specifically feels like it needs a season to itself. Last night her "schock" about Dexter's brother being The Ice Truck Killer was another fine example of this show's consistently flat characters. That should've been a massive reveal for her. Instead it was "Wait, what? ... and he's a blood spatter analyst!" ... and scene!!

But at it's core, Deb, Dex, Harry, and hopefully now more Hannah, the show has really worked this year.

Before season 6 ended they confirmed that there would be 2 more seasons. We have 1 more after this.

I was totally suprised that Dexter dumped the whole Dark Passenger thing and think that's a pretty big deal.

I think from here he slowly starts to realize that he's a psycho and maybe even embraces it.
