Day One: Your Favorite Dexter Quote

"I've lived in darkness a long time. Over the years, my eyes adjusted until the dark became my world and I could see. But then Rudy turned on the light. He flooded my memory and now I'm blind."

Day Five: Your Favorite Dexter Murder

I think the most satisfying murder on the show was when Lumen killed Jordan Chase.
But my favourite murder by Dexter is probably from 5x01 'My Bad', when he kills the random guy in the bathroom. Dexter always talks about faking his emotions etc, so this whole thing was pretty intense.

Its weird to talk about your favourite murder. LOL.

Day 6 — Your favorite Dexter moment

I just find this scene so tragicomic. I totally see Deb having all these reactions at the same time when she finds out that Dexter has a dark passenger in him.

Day Six: Your Favorite Dexter Moment

Oh man... Dexter is one of those shows where so, so many moments are so important. There is basically no filler at all. I remember watching link for the first time and saying "No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, NO!" and of course, everything that happens after that scene is horrific, so I like how simple but EPIC that scene is. But I think I'll go with the last scene of the season 1 finale, just because its pretty fun. I love Dexter's dream world.

Miguel Prado bored me, but Lila made me scream at my television. Jaime Murray was pretty damn good at playing Lila, so its a shame that Lila was disgustingly, horribly horrible and a total fucking bitch.

Season 4. Its the worst season in terms of some of my favourite characters being killed in horrible, horrible ways, but the whole season is epic from start to finish. Arthur Mitchell is the most disturbing son of a bitch ever.

Day Thirteen: A Character Death That Made You Cry The Most

Even though someone had spoiled me, so I knew it was coming, Rita's death is horrific. And its just so tragic in the context of Rita's whole life. 2nd most emotional tv death of all time for me. I think it might be the worst moment in television history.
Lundy's death was also horrible. I had no idea that was coming, and Lundy was my 2nd favourite charcter on the show, and I shipped Lundy/Deb pretty hard, so when that happened I was pretty devastated too.

Day Fourteen: A Character Who Didn't Die But You Wanted To Die

None really. Dexter, or someone/thing else, always gets them in the end. And if they don't meet their end, there is usually a reason why. Although I am pretty concerned about both Lumen and Jimmy (the blind voodoo guy) walking around with some knowledge of who Dexter is...

Julie Benz has been in both 'Supernatural' and 'NCIS' and pops up in movies I like every now and then.
But CS Lee left one of my other favourite shows, 'Chuck', to be on 'Dexter'.

Day Twenty-Three: The Best Thing About Dexter

Kinda the same as day twenty-one... The best thing about Dexter Morgan is... he always talks about how he has no emotional connections to anything, but he totally does. I love it when Dexter gets emotional.

Day Twenty-Four: Would you be Dexter's accomplice?

Of course not! *innocent face*

Dexter's life seems to get pretty complicated when he takes on an accomplice, but I would probably help him out if the opportunity arose.

Day Thirty: How do you think Dexter will end?

Oh man, I don't know. It'll be bloody.
I think Dexter dying is really the only way to end it. I wouldn't want to see him caught and sent to prison. I think he should die in something like a car accident or at least something totally unrelated to his... activities... That way, it just ends. The turmoil is over and his family isn't in danger anymore.
I guess if he did get caught it would be a great opportunity to have Dexter open up about his life, especially to Deb. I think it would be kinda perfect if Deb had to kill Dexter, like she catches him in the act and she has no choice but to kill him... I dunno, I'm terrible at thinking up endings.

Yeah, so I started filling this out right after I'd finished S5, and I don't even remember half of this stuff now. I just have so many lovely things to say about Dexter, it would be a shame not to share them.

Day 1 — Your favorite Dexter quote
"Surprise, mothafucka."

Day 2 — Your favorite Dexter episode
'Everything Is Illumenated'

Day 3 — Your favorite Dexter female character
Lumen

Day 4 — Your favorite Dexter male character
Doakes

Day 5 — Your favorite Dexter Murder
Brian Moser/Lila/Boyd Fowler

Day 6 — Your favorite Dexter moment
When the 'Born in Blood' thing finally came together instead of just being random little flashes.

Day 7 — Your favorite Dexter weapon
Frying pan

Day 8 — Your favorite 'Dexter almost caught out' moment
Behind the curtain, 'The Big One'

Day 9 — A photo of your favorite Dexter character
*insert picture of Lumen*

Day 10 — A photo of your least favorite Dexter character
*insert picture of Dead!Rita*

Day 11 — A song that reminds you of Dexter
'Getting Away With Murder'

Day 12 — Your favorite season
5

Day 13 — A character death that made you cry the most
Character's reactions to Rita's death were sad, but I was too busy cackling like a crazy person to care. Be goneeee.
Another notable death was The Marshal's, because I only decided to watch Dexter after they announced the KJ casting. I was finishing S7 when 8 aired and found out it was only for 3 eps. I watched 8 SEASONS of this shit for 3 EPISODES. *shoots self*

Day 14 — A character who didn't die but you wanted to die
*doesn't care about anyone*

Day 15 — Your favorite sandwich
saywhatnow?

Day 16 — Favorite film or TV Show with a Dexter actor/actress in it
Sons of Anarchy - Jimmy Smits, Kenny Johnson, Billy Brown, Peter Weller
Defiance - Jaime Murray, Julie Benz. (I hate her a lot less when there are aliens.)

Day 17 — Which character would you say you are most like
Like the twin, going with Deb, but only because of all the fucking cursing.

Day 18 — Your Favourite Scene
I liked it when Flanery & KJ were on my screen at the same time. That's pretty much the only time I ever actually watched it in the last few seasons. A more serious answer would probably involve Lumen, but it's been so long, I can't single out anything specific.

Day 19 — Favorite Dexter actor
*grumblegrumbleKJ* If we're talking someone who's been around for more than 3 episodes, Jimmy Smits, Mark Pellegrino, Sean Patrick Flanery...

Day 20 — Favorite Dexter actress
Margo Martindale

Day 21 — Your favorite thing about Dexter
The show? Guest stars. Morgan? He's a slippery sonofabitch, all his narrow escapes.

Day 22 — Favourite Dexter relationship
Dexter & Doakes. Or Lumen.
If we're talking romantic relationship, Hannah.

Day 23 — The best thing about Dexter
Ultimately, he's doing good. Or something.

Day 24 — Would you be Dexter's accomplice?
Nah.

Day 25 — If you were Dexter would you do anything differently?
Probably wouldn't have done all that marriage counseling. Might've made Astor "disappear." (I'm a biiig fan of the Bennett family.)

Day 26 — Your most shocking moment
Discovering Lumen. I started late and knew how most situations end, so the beginnings of characters are sometimes a surprise. I knew Julia Stiles was an accomplice-like person, but I didn't know how she came into the picture.

Day 27 — Your most upsetting moment
Seeing KJ die for the hundredth time? Ohwait...

Day 28 — What do you think of the opening theme song?
Something about it just... rubs me the wrong way. I'm sure that's the point, so well done, but I fast-forward through it every time. Yay DVDs.

Day 29 — Best Dexter nemesis
Doakes... but Trinity was a good one, too.

Day 30 — How do you think Dexter will end?
There was a firefiiiiight!
(That was my original answer. I now know how it ends. Meh.)
