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.

This is as suspiciously as Batista (David Zayas) ever looks at Dexter (Michael C. Hall).


Episode 11 | Aired Sep 15, 2013

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?
