The 8th and final season of Showtime's Dexter is now history. I've watched this show from the beginning and haven't missed even one episode. I for one will miss Dexter a lot. If you do not want to know how the last episode ended please stop reading here.
Last week Deb was shot by serial killer Oliver Saxon. After surgery, she was looking better but hours later she had a stroke and became brain dead. Dexter didn't want to leave her like this so he turned off her life support. Seconds before she died, he told her he loved her. As he did with all his kills, he took her out to sea and put her body in the ocean. He watched as she slowly sunk down.
Before this happened, Dexter, Hannah and Harrison were getting ready to board a plane but a P.I. named Elway was on their tail. Elway stood to make 250k for turning Hannah in to authorites and he wasn't going to give up. Dexter created a diversion to get Elway off their scent. The airport was evacuated at that point, plus there was a major hurricane on it's way.
Dexter decided to have Hannah take Harrison on a bus to Jacksonville where they can board a plane and get away. He decides to stay and do his last kill, which would be Oliver Saxon. He and Saxon run into each other at the hospital, just as he was getting the better of Dexter, Sgt. Batista puts a gun to his head and arrests him.
Back at the station, Dexter gets access to the cage Saxon is in and kills him by stabbing him with a pen, right in the neck. Dexter convinces Batista and Quinn that Saxon was trying to kill him.
Elway shows up on the bus Hannah and Harrison are on. She stabs Elway with a needle full of horse tranquilizer.
Having finished what he had to do, Dexter boards his boat, decides Hannah and Harrison will be safer without someone like him around them and drives straight into the hurricane, but not before calling Hannah and Harrison telling Harrison he will always love him. Dexter then tosses his cellphone into the ocean. A rescue boat finds Dexter's boat (Slice of Life) completley torn apart with no survivors.
Hannah and Harrison are sitting outside a cafe, Hannah is reading a news story about how Dexter's boat was found with no sign of life, not very much emotion on her face. She simply said to Harrison, "Let's go get some ice cream" and they walked away.
The next scene was of a logging crew. One of the crew member's walked into an office. It was Dexter.
What an ending to a wonderful series. A series about a serial killer who only killed serial killers.
I'm really going to miss this show.
