Entertainment Weekly





ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This episode was really unlike any we’ve seen on the show before. How much time and money was put into this hour compared to a typical week?
SCOTT BUCK: It was considerably more. There were a lot of visual effects that are very costly and then to go out and shoot in Astoria added to our price tag. But it was our final episode and Showtime was very accommodating. Our normal eight days of production became 10 days.

Before the season started, you said the core idea behind this finale has been in the works for years. What was the original concept?
BUCK: The kernel idea were the last few scenes. They were what I pitched a few years ago. The main idea was Dexter is forced to kill Debra. And there are many ways that could happen. But those final scenes were pretty much unchanged.
SARA COLLETON: From the very beginning the paradox was here’s a guy who doesn’t feel he’s a human being, who has to fake it. But in faking it, he’s a better brother, boyfriend, colleague that most...

Dexter (Michael C. Hall) unexpectedly spends the entire series finale sitting in this chair staring into space.

Episode 12 | Aired Sep 22, 2013

The series closes with a surprisingly lovely, bold and moving hour. Here's what 'Remember the Monsters?' got right and wrong
By James Hibberd @ EW



The rumored leaks were wrong about the ending. That's the good news.

The series finale was the best Dexter episode in years. That's the great news.

It was also one of the strangest episodes in the show's history.

Sunday's hour was grounded, sober, heart-felt, intense and focused. There were no irrelevant subplots. There was hardly any Dex voiceover. No silly Ghost Harry. The musical score was prominent and engaging. The production values were high. You can't help wondering: Why wasn't the rest of the season -- hell, the last several seasons of Dexter -- more like this episode? I'm not talking about the dramatic twists, but the style and the tone of the writing, directing and acting. "Remember the Monsters?" is a odd beast. It's like watching a different series, one that was more compelling than the show it served to close.

A major character takes a hit as 'Dexter' unveils its penultimate episode
By James Hibberd @ EW


This is very nearly IT. The penultimate Dexter. And yes, stuff happened. One death. One potentially fatal wound. Two big therapeutic breakthroughs for Dex. It was a major episode, though it lacked tension for its first half and there were a few big plot holes for nitpickers to jeer at.

We start with Dexter at Vogel's place, washing up after Saxon killed her last week and trashing evidence of his dad's sessions with her. "I never imagined the last homicide I'd work would be one that I'm a part of," he says, which is odd because he's been secretly involved in so many of the cases he's worked. Then he adds: "I have to call this in. I can't be seen leaving the scene of the crime." What. What? What?! Nobody ever spots Dex leaving any crime scene! The man kidnaps people in broad daylight, and he's now worried about leaving a house in the middle of the night?

Pillow Talk: Dexter and Hannah continue to make plans for happily ever after in Argentina in "Goodbye, Miami."

Episode 10 | Aired Sep 8, 2013


Dr. Evelyn Vogel is the latest mother figure to violently exit Dexter's life in 'Goodbye, Miami'
By Jeff Jensen @ EW




For the second time in his life, Dexter Morgan lost a mother. A "Goodbye, Miami" to you, too, Evelyn Vogel, the Doctor Franken-Shrinker who created the internal operating system for the unfeeling terminator that our "heroic" serial killer has been for most of his life. She was slain by her biological son, Oliver (formerly Daniel), Dexter’s latest, last doppelganger and the measure of the monster he could have been: A child of tragedy, warped by neglect, who never benefitted from rehabilitating love or a structuring moral “code,” who can now be nothing more than the small, sinister thing that he is, a furious sociopath with a gleeful love for slaughter. Dexter wanted to put this rabid runt down, and Vogel had (reluctantly) come to see and agree with the wisdom of this revolting mercy: Watching the video Oliver had made of braining Dexter-wannabe Zach, Vogel realized her very bad boy was beyond correction. But Oliver was immediately suspicious of the...

Episode 09 | Aired Aug 25, 2013

The brain surgeon revealed (again!), a new cop arrives, and Dex decides to quit
By James Hibberd @ EW


Argentina, huh? Dexter is going to quit his job at Miami Metro, and run off to Argentina with Hannah and Harrison (after politely giving two weeks notice, of course). But first he's going to risk all of that to kill the brain surgeon, whose identity was finally REALLY revealed, to avenge the murder of his dear longtime friend Zach Hamilton. Hmm.

Here's 11 things we learned on Dexter this week:

1. Dexter loves Hannah! Hannah loves Dexter!: We start with the killers in bed. Dex's butt remains under the covers this time. So do his feet, so we can only hope he eventually removed his green sexy-time socks. Dex tells Hannah he loves her and she says it back. They sound totally bummed, but who are we to doubt their feelings?

2. A real cop is in town: A Deputy U.S. Marshall shows up tracking Hannah. "Lem!" cry fans of The Shield. It would even better if it was Raylan Givens, but he would see through Dex in a heartbeat and end the show...

Episode 08 | Aired Aug 18, 2013

Dex and Hannah take a wild road trip and a serial killer from the past returns to claim another victim
By James Hibberd @ EW



Better? Better. Sunday's Dexter episode was better than recent hours. Zach Hamilton got a personality transplant, Dex bared his booty, and a serial killer who we thought/hoped was dead returned.

This week's episode is titled "Are We There Yet." Some fans have been saying exactly that about the show in recent weeks. And the first half was likewise pretty sleepy. Then four killer characters came together and Dexter got a pulse. Here's 11 things we learned this week, followed by some new theories:

1. Masuka's daughter took the job: Nicki has opted for part-time employment in the Miami Metro. Most people don't know this, but serving buffalo wings topless is exactly the experience a major metropolitan police department requires for scoring a job in its forensics lab. Nicki is also apparently a New Age type, and is worried about all that negative energy floating around in the murder lab. Masuka introduces Dex as the "king of...

Last week's big cliffhanger is jettisoned, while Hannah McKay sends Dexter into a confused tailspin
By James Hibberd @ EW






Before recapping this week's episode, we're going to spend this entire page and then some on how Dexter resolved last week's big cliffhanger. Because Dexter fans got robbed.

Hannah McKay made her dramatic return last week, poisoning Dexter and Debra into unconsciousness in the show's final minute. Muahhaaha! What a cliffhanger! So what happened next? Did she kill them? Torture them? Put them into a cube maze with each room having a nefarious trap? Write hilarious things on their faces? No. She did none of that. She left Debra alone. And she took Dexter and ... moved him to another location. Left him on the side of the road, to be exact...

[Cue EW recap crickets].

Wow. That's really ... wow. How ... mildly annoying of her! That's like, kind of inconvenient! Surprised she didn't leave him with cab fare while she was at it. I mean she ... leaves him on the side of the road? Maybe next time...

STRING THEORY Dexter (Michael C. Hall) tries to count the number of story threads this season.


Episode 06 | Aired Aug 4, 2013

Let's make predictions on the rumored 'Dexter' spin-off while we break down 'A Little Reflection'
By James Hibberd @ EW




I hope you don't have Time Warner Cable and missed Sunday's episode due to the carrier's contract dispute with Showtime and are reading this recap to find out what happened ... oh my god! Best episode ever!

Batista finally looked in those boxes of evidence in his living room and is starting to suspect Deb may have killed La Guerta; their scenes are full of tension and cat-and-mouse gamesmanship. And as Batista closes in on Deb, it's starting to become clear that Dexter might have to choose between keeping his sister alive and keeping himself out of prison, which puts Dr. Vogel's whole theory on whether Dex really loves his sister to the test. While Jamie realized she could do a lot better than Quinn and dumped his ass, and instead makes an uncomfortable pass at boss-daddy Dex himself. Oh, and Jake Elway hanged himself because he decided his character is too dull to survive.

Episode 05 | Aired Jul 28, 2013

We're nearly halfway through the final season. So why does Dexter feel like business as usual?
By James Hibberd @ EW





The good news: We've escaped the muddled Brain Surgeon storyline! He's apparently dead as Trinity after Sunday's "This Little Piggy" episode.

The not-great news: The episode was otherwise pretty sleepy, and a new murder case was introduced that looks right out of a CBS murder-of-the-week crime procedural.

So I'm going to say it: Five episodes into Dexter's final season, it feels like we're killing time before the dramatic fireworks that we assume/hope are eventually coming. The season 8 premiere was tense, emotional and gripping; it felt like the show was evolving into an interesting and non-formulaic animal for its final round. But since, we've been lost in Dr. Vogel's psychotherapy and chasing a Not-So-Big Bad.

Episode 04 | Aired Jul 21, 2013

Dex and Deb get a crash course in extreme therapy: Here's 8 things we learned
By James Hibberd @ EW





This week Dr. Vogel continued to work her dark creepy magic on Dexter and Debra, trying to get them to accept their past deeds and feel generally okay about mercilessly killing people. The episode, aptly titled "Scar Tissue," is basically one big therapy session, climaxing with Debra taking her treatment into her own hands and Dexter having a breakthrough while trying to murder The Brain Surgeon.

With our Comic-Con coverage on the front burner this weekend (here's what happened at the Dexter panel), we're going to keep this recap short and bittersweet. Here's 8 things we learned Sunday night:

1. Quinn passed the sergeants test: In the 85th percentile, no less. We're surprised too. "I've never been this happy to get back a positive test," Quinn says. Yet deputy chief Matthews is putting pressure on Batista to give the stripes to Miller instead. Something about Miller scoring higher -- not to mention seeming like a competent professional who...

Dex races to prevent Deb from confessing to murder as Quinn seems like a lousy student
By James Hibberd at EW


"Vogel's the killer" was the highest-rated comment on last week's Dexter recap. Many seemed pretty sure of that. Now, though ... apparently not. Unless whoever is leaving those gory gifts on Dr. Vogel's doorstep is somehow operating under her puppet-master-like control. I don't think so. Vogel is hiding a secret, I suspect, but she's not The Brain Surgeon.

Daddy Dex wakes to find Harrison covered in blood, an echo of his own serial killer birth. Turns out he was simply gorging on a carton of Popsicles: Now in Gory Blood-Red Flavor. Harrison gives the most primal answer to Dex asking him why he did that. "Because I love them," Harrison says, and surely all of us who have ever spent a weekend binging on seasons of Breaking Bad or 24 know how Harrison feels. Dex gives him some Pepto and wishes, with handy transition-friendly insight, that only Deb's woes could be cured so easily.

SO, YOU KILL HERE OFTEN? Dr. Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) and Dexter (Michael C. Hall) get to know each other.

Episode 02 | Aired Jul 7, 2013

Dr. Vogel creeps on Dex while Debra's proves she's not done killing
By James Hibberd @ EW



And we pick up where we left off: Creepy brain-shrink Vogel revealing to to Dexter that she knows his deepest and darkest.

We see her 1980s-era videotaped interview with Dex's dad. Harry is explaining that his stabby son wanted to see a murder scene, so he snuck Dex onto one and he found it more fun than a water park and roller-coaster park combined.

Harry is wound so tight that he wears his shirt buttoned to the top with a tie even while confessing his parenting issues, no acid-watched jeans and Swatch for this man. Also, this marks the first of this hour's "But Why...?" question flares: Why would a cop talking about such sensitive and criminal family secrets allow his interviews to be videotaped?

I'll try to keep such questions to a minimum since enjoying Dexter requires certain amount of "why the f--k not, just go with it" casualness. There's a thin line between smartly pointing out crime thriller plot holes and being that annoying friend you can't...

Watch Dexter Season 8 Online
Mystery and thriller show, Dexter is all set to entertain the viewers with its eighth season, which is going to premiere the very first episode on 30 June, 2013. Few days are remained for the release of final season of the show. The trailers of the season are indicating that the much anticipated season will be interesting.

Apart from the main characters of the show, some new characters are expected to be introduced here. If the sources are believed then the first four episodes of the series will be focused on Debra and Dr. Vogel. ‘A Beautiful Day’ is the very first episode of the eighth season. The show starts with the storyline after six month of LaGuerta’s death. Batista has replaced Deb as police lieutenant and Deb has started working as private investigator.

Marshall Cooper and Dr. Vogel are the new additions in the season, which can be seen dealing with a case, where some pieces of victim’s brain are removed. Dr. Vogel shows her tough side, when she gives the indication that they are dealing with a serial killer. It seems that she has hint about Dexter’s past. Although, she is a Psychopath Whisperer for FBI, yet she knows several...

Just watched Dexter last night. Is it just me, or are there way too many loopholes in the plot this season? Amidst moments of brilliance, there are times in the show when Dexter's behavior is inexplicable. The Dexter from seasons 1 & 2 would have dumped little Travis Marshall pieces into the drink by now. Yet time and again Travis seems to be getting off the hook...as if the writers are going out of their way to hammer it into our heads that Gellar is in Travis' head.

Could it be more obvious?? Unless this season is going to pack the biggest punch in TV history, I don't see this season going anywhere but down.

That being said, I will give credit to the writers for bringing back big bro Brian for a couple of episodes. It was nostalgic if nothing else.

The death of Brother Sam deserves a separate paragraph. This was probably the biggest blunder of the season. If Mos Def (or Mos or Yasiin Bey...make up your mind, dude!) doesn't get an Emmy for his fantastic, if short lived performance, I will watch every episode of Charlie's Angels (the new crappy one) twice...for a week. But somehow in the back of my mind, I feel we haven't seen the last...

Finally, solid details about the upcoming season of Dexter are beginning to emerge -- and they're more than just casting news. September can't come soon enough!

If you'd rather not be spoiled about how far ahead in time Dexter season 6 will jump when it premieres, where (literally and figuratively) we'll find Dexter when that happens, and what the deal is with all those new guest stars, including Masuka's sexy new lab assistant, stop right here. For those whose Dark Passenger yearns for knowledge, read on...


Dexter Does the Time Warp: TV Guide reports, straight from the mouth of executive producer Sara Colleton, that when we catch back up with Mr. Morgan this September, it will be one year since we last saw him -- and since he said goodbye to Lumen. Colleton explains the logic behind the jump, and where Dex's head will be as a result:

"We thought a clean start to this season would be to jump ahead a year, so he's not getting over Lumen, and he's not still in the throes of dealing with the Rita thing. We wanted to jump ahead a year and find that Dexter has gotten his groove back. He's gotten over Rita and Lumen."

Well Im kinda new here, Im argentinian so here tomorrow is the preview of the 3º season so imagine how upset Im am. Anyway I love Dexter I think its one of the best show I've ever seen. When Michael C. Hall won a golden globe I keep the newspaper and I stik it in the wall of my bedroom. My friends doesn't see Dexter, they don't even know him. So I see Dexter alone. I remember when I was all the week waiting to the wednesday so I could see Dexter and then Desesperate Housewifes. Dexter was really important for me it was one of the best shows and I want to read the books but I can't obtain them. One day my daddy told me that Dexter has Cancer I don't believe him. Then I found out that was truth and I was really sad. So I just want to know if he is ok maybe cause you are northamerican you know something.

PS: Don't post any comment of the 3,4 or 5 season cause I didn't saw them

Thank you for read

It certainty shocked me! I mean at first when Dexter finally caught Trinity I was so happy! Finally Trinity was going to get his comeuppance! Dexter sure gave it to him. I LOVE how he used a hammer!Knowing the series I was highly suspicious of this "fairy-tale ending" I had this nervous feeling that something was gonna happen to Dexter something BIG.When it finally did happen I WAS BLOWN AWAY! I mean I could NOT believe that the show's creators could do that to Dexter! Now the question remains. What will Dexter do now? Will he abandon his family Or will he be able to become a single dad, and forsake his Dark Passenger forever? I think Dexter will be a good single dad, but I don't know if can entirely give up his murderous ways. Not after what happened to Rita. I think he will DEFIANTLY keep killing. It's the only way he knows how to cope with such an ordeal. It's his only solution for him to keep his "mask" in place. If he doesn't he may very well loose everything.

Dexter all hyped up to kill Freebo
Dexter has so many facets to his character. The producers of this great show spend alot of time developing how we as the audience see Dexter. How many actual serial killers do you hope will get away with their crimes? Every sunday night for near three years now I find myself feeling a confusing sense of guilt for sincerely wishing Dexter keeps murdering and not getting caught. Does this make me a horribly nasty evil person? I don't know, but I do know this is good evidence the writers and producers of Dexter are doing their job and they're doing their job well.

This weeks episode is titled "Finding Freebo" because last week Dexter went to kill Freebo and wound up killing the brother of a district deputy attorney, letting Freebo slip right through his fingers. Oops! Dexter's always making some kind of error in judgment. This is his second obvious error this season. His first was getting his girlfriend Rita pregnant. Actually Dexter's third possibly detrimental foul up occurred last night. Immediately upon completing his mission of killing Freebo the deputy district attorney showed up, catching Dexter with fresh blood on his hands. Dexter quickly blankets...
