We Are Sorry To Report ‘Dexter’ Finale Leak Sounds Terrible (MAJOR SPOILERS)

So, yeah, this isn’t satisfying at all. It sounds the most likely of the leaks and the photos from the Dexter series finale (titled “Remember the Monsters?” – too bad “Surprise, Motherfucker!” has been used already, that title had a lot more pizzazz) that Showtime has released pretty much mirror the hospital stuff. Click the big link below if you want to read the blow-by-blow… We think the odds are high that this leak is in fact correct, so another SPOILER ALERT is probably in order.

Our “Spoiler-A-Rama” page hasn’t seen much action lately, so we cut and pasted it (and fixed some typos and formatting for your reading convenience) on that page. You can cut to the chase if you want by clicking here if you must know immediately what the leaked Dexter finale entails.


There is a major, unexpected death, but you’re probably not going to like it.  We can’t guarantee this is what will transpire in the finale, it could be a fake to throw us off, but we doubt the writers care enough to bother. In this leaked Dexter finale, it’s what we’ve come to expect – lazy writing with a “shocker” death that was not earned. It’s easy for a writing team on a series TV show to kill off a major character for shock value –especially when they can’t think of anything else. Cross your fingers that this turns out to be a planted, fake leak and that for the first time since Rita’s death, the show pleasantly surprises or, better yet, thrills us.

Most of the related articles below, unfortunately, support this leak. It definitely leaves ‘some interpretation’ and we can’t see how it could not have a ‘polarizing fan reaction’.

Dexter Showrunner On The Season Seven Finale And The Final Season – “A serial killer story can only end so many ways, and none of them are particularly happy.” (Spoilers Galore)

We were hoping to post this (Word Press “reblog” style) Sunday or Monday after the show, but when there wasn’t anything up by Monday morning, we figured they weren’t covering Dexter (because they’d just gotten sick of it during S6, for which we can’t blame them). Wish this finale had been as good as the strong start they gave this season. However, the fact that they titled this episode:

…was so cool that we bumped our grade up on that alone: a generous B- to the seventh season finale. That ending was more of a heart-breaker to us than the end of S4, which was pretty sad. But seeing Doakes again, even though most of the flashbacks were sloppily written and even out of character, was pretty cool! The featured image is a really cool billboard (from an anonymous poster who took a photo of it) for the finale. Oh, why not, here it is again!

We try to keep vibes fairly positive here on Horror Boom; the internet seems to be dangerously close to becoming a 24/7 hate jamboree these days.  So rather than burn the finale to the ground here and now, we’ll just give you this link to a review of Surprise, Motherfucker on The Onion AV Club. It’s a skillfully written and intelligent –yet brutally honest– review (better than stressed-out Mrs. Horror Boom could write at the moment), and it points out what went wrong. If you’ve got time to kill, the replies on any AV Club review are hilarious– probably because many times, staffers of The Onion will show up and post.
