‘Dexter’ producers explain finale, defend final season

The title of this EW.com piece gives you a hint as to the quality of the finale (“Wait wait wait! At least let us talk about this, we can explain!”, and do they get defensive? Take a wild guess).  Well, we will grudgingly give them props to go out on a pretty dark, downbeat note. The leaked spoiler for the Dexter series finale got a couple of things right, but fortunately left Quinn out of things. We just wish anything in the final season had been the least bit enjoyable and/or thrilling to watch. What did you guys think?

Warning: if anything bothered you in the finale, especially plot holes, this piece WILL piss you off. If the finale pissed you off, this will piss you off more, even if you didn’t think that was possible (this writer was willing to give the finale a D+, then decided, fuck those people, now it’s an F before even finishing reading the entire thing). We wouldn’t have blamed the interviewer/writer for saying, “yeah, I call bullshit on that,” and ending the interview in disgust before they said anything more they would regret later (career-wise, that is;  we doubt their opinions would change, especially on the arrogant and defensive attitude of the producers).  A roller-coaster-ride, this finale was not. Spoiler alerts, if you haven’t seen the finale yet…

 

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’.
