Show might have just jumped the shark with this Deb/Dexter plot.


^This though I'd be lying if I said it hadn't come close in the past. Regardless of plausibility the twist is still stupid.

Spoiler


Either way I hope they end the show soon. If twists like these are now an option then it's obvious this is gone on long enough.

 

Stop trying to Scooby-Doo this. We're not going to solve this mystery for you.

Well no it has to be her

Sadly its obvious the writers have no idea what they are doing. Also Dexter should have been sharing scenes with Edward James Olmos instead of Colin Hanks.

What I find strange about the whole Dexter/Deb thing is that I imagine this all was shot after they got divorced in real life. If I just divorced someone, I sure as hell wouldn't want to start pretending to love them on screen.

I have to assume this thread is a joke. This season was, by a wide margin, the worst season of Dexter to date. The plotting was incredibly poor, the characters underdeveloped, and the suspense all but eliminated. I'd say that, with this one in the can, Dexter is batting about a 0.500. The first, second, and fourth seasons were very intense and generally tightly plotted. The third, fifth, and sixth seasons were marred by underwhelming villains, if nothing else. Hopefully the show tightens up with a firm end in sight. Sadly, I don't see that happening; with Deb discovering Dexter, the show will definitely push through some bullshit plots to continue for 2 more seasons.
My gaming tally:
2013
2012
2011
2010
2009

I thought the season was okay - definitely better than the last one. I did find it a little underwhelming with Travis in the end. While the voices in Dexter's head helps keep him in line, Travis' are what drive him to kill.

I feel like the end of this season has just been a set up for next season. The sister will find the Ice Truck Killer hand and put all the pieces together. Maybe Dex was evil all along, etc. etc. It was kind of obvious it was going to happen after Debra decided she wanted to get all involved and love-dovey with Dexter.

I don't know what people are looking for in this show, but I thought this season was really good. It was certainly better than last season, where Julia Stiles absolutely sucked every scene, and Colin Hanks and Olmos were fantastic.

Someone mentioned the writers "obviously had no clue what they were doing", well that's false, they actually had all the events planned out from the very beginning.

And as far as Deb goes, while I think the "incest" storyline is a bit ridiculous and not needed. A) it is certainly something that can happen in real life, especially considering the fact they have no blood relation, and B) integral to the storyline leading up to her finding out about Dexter and where her feelings and her discovery take her.

And, as far as I can tell from reading about the show and the upcoming two seasons, unless I am missing something, they are planning on the show wrapping up with Season 8.

The scenes with Colin Hanks and Michael C Hall were not even anywhere near the quality of scenes with John Lithgow or Jimmy Smitts. I dont really remember too much about last years villian but I know I hated him. I didnt really hate Travis until he kidnapped Harrison. All the season had was the twist and alot of people figured it out beforehand. If you figured the twist you were left with a subpar villian(s).

As for the Deb story

1. Its so bad it almost retroactively ruins previous seasons
2. How is it intergral to her finding out? She could and should have found out last year and it would have been far less anti climatic and far more tense of a scene.

The show manages to still be entertaining because of Michael C Hall who does an amazing job. The writers are doing a very poor job and its shown in a number or ways.

I'm surprised most of the people in this thread aren't employed as writers.

Exactly. It's not in the least bit integral in general scheme of things and that's my main gripe. It shouldn't be there because the plot had already laid down the frame work for the discovery to bring their relationship to the precipice naturally. Instead the writers reached in the nearest lolwtf bucket and threw in an embarrassing ratings driven plot device supposedly injecting more "complexity" into an already brilliantly complex situation to begin with. It's also mildly insulting to the fans and the character herself to even suggest some sort of romantic entanglement would be necessary for her NOT to have second thoughts about arresting him... at all. Anyone who believes otherwise hasn't been paying much attention or probably just started watching the show recently.

But you're assuming how she reacts when it hasn't happened yet. You're actually assuming a lot here.

To be fair to the writers, if something didn't impede her ability to do her job everyone would wonder why Deb didn't react like Dexter thought she would have.

So if you are fan of Chuck you should be stoked that star Yvonne Strahovski will have a multi-episode turn on Season 7 of the show. It should be interesting to see her in something outside Chuck.
