I didn’t see one single, solitary second of this year’s eighth and final season of “Dexter“. In a desperate bid to get back into the show, I watched Season 6 and the first episode of Season 7 last year – and that didn’t really help me in terms of inspiration.
Going off your reactions – I made the right choice. The season and the final episode in particular really seemed to p*ss you guys off. I know a lot of people were wondering how a roomful of writers could have signed off on this thing, but now it appears as though Showtime didn’t offer them much of a chance to craft a satisfying end.
Per Vulture, the network insisted Dex stay alive despite multiple proposed endings that had him dying. Producer John Goldwyn told the site, “They won’t let us kill him. Showtime was very clear about that. When we told them the arc for the last season, they just said, ‘Just to be clear, he’s going to live.’ There were a lot of endings discussed because it was a very interesting problem to solve, to bring it to a close.”
