[TV] Did “Dexter” Writers Foreshadow Finale In Third Season?!

dexter

Yes, it’s Thursday and we’re still talking about Showtime’s “Dexter” finale – I spent eight years of my life watching the show, I think a week of conversation is a small price to pay!

Something interesting is making the rounds this Thursday morning, as apparently the writers of Showtime’s “Dexter” may have snuck in a bit of finale foreshadowing all the way back in season 3.

The below clip comes from Episode 3.07, “Easy as Pie,” which aired back on November 9, 2008. In the episode, Dexter (Michael C. Hall) is asked to do the unthinkable for an old friend, which parallels the decision Dexter must make in the finale when Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) is left in a coma. The question is, what came first, the chick or the egg? Did the writers take note of this and use it as fuel, or was it deliberately placed there? Whatever the case, it’s cool.

    How dare you make the finale make sense for the haters!

    There is no doubt in my mind this was purely a coincidence. The final season was devoid of competency from the writers, never mind alluding back to the third season (this isn’t Breaking Bad we’re talking about). The price you paid for eight years of your life was just that: eight years of your life… coupled with the pain and torment suffered while cringing through this entire season.

        I only hated this season (and especially the finale) SO MUCH because I truly loved the first four seasons. If I didn’t enjoy it show much earlier on I wouldn’t be this let down. The whole season felt like a slap in the face.

    Would it help if the writers said, “Surprise motherfucker! We meant it that way.”? Nah, that was Season 2.
