Those are pretty much my picks too! And thanks for giving a shout-out to 'Treme', my pick for most underappreciated great show on television. Blows me away every week and virtually nobody ever mentions it.

Three episodes to go and now they are introducing a new killer?

Either this is a set up for next season or this is very odd to add something like that this late.

Could be the one that looks easy and it gets him pinned.

Part of me thinks the new killer might have something to do with the intern.That storyline was discarded a little too abruptly, I can't help feeling there should be more to it.

I don't see how the firekiller ties into the rest of plot, other than as a throwaway slabber.confused.gif

This close to the end and knowing next season is the last, I have to think the arson investigator plot must lead into a cliff hanger conclusion that hints at the final story.  I really can't imagine just a throw away plot to pad out a couple of episodes.  Whatever, I remain confident of the writing staff, as this has been one terrific season.  Ray Stevenson was a spectacular addition and Yvonne...yowsa!

I missed out on Treme because it started at a time when I wasn't an HBO subscriber. By the time I came back to HBO, Treme was in its second season, maybe its third. I gather that missing the show was my loss.

It's not for everybody. The plotlines unfold slowly and methodically but the characters are colorful and richly drawn. And oh, the music! If you're a fan of jazz - the real stuff played by the real guys in the real places - then 'Treme' is sublime. I highly recommend it.

Yeah, it's sort of The Wire, with tunes.

Good description. biggrin.gif Both series were created and executive produced by David Simon, one of the smartest guys in the business. 'Treme' is a little more upbeat though. wink.gif

Just brilliant shows. It is not easy to jump in but some of the richest experience I have ever had with shows with both the Wire and Treme.

You can catch up on HBOGO.

Typically a slab De jure happens early in the season. Why introduce one during what is
an arc to the final episode?

I agree....I just don't get it.
It seems so weird to throw in a "slabber" at this point in time.eek.gifconfused.gif

The Pyro might be something for Dexter to focus on while his relationship with Hannah unfolds. Because Isaak is gone there needs to be a bad guy. I can see the Laguerta problem turn out to be the Cliffhanger or nothing at all.

Easy guys - let's see what happens with the "slabber" before we rush to judgement. They haven't let us down yet this season...

Yeah, agreed. This isn't just another "slabber" (love that term BTW). If that's the case, then the writers really are out of ideas and the finale season should just be scrapped now.

It will all tie together in some form or fashion, count on it. 'Cause that's how this show rolls.

The "Laguerta problem" is the perfect cliffhanger for the season IMO.

Thinking to next year, several threads to the series has to be addressed:
1) Will Dex ever get caught?
The biggest threat has to come from within the Dept.
It is where all of his trails of death begin and end; he uses his position to locate targets and to cover his tracks.
This is where he is most vulnerable to being discovered.

2) Will Dex commit suicide, get killed, go on the lam, or keep doing his "thing?"

3) Deb's destiny.
What will she do about her love?
Will she act on it and save him by seduction?
Will she just say "f_ck it" and leave him to the wind?

One of the things that has always amazed me about this show is that Dexter is constantly doing searches on his victims via Police databases. Are none of those searches logged? And he can search fingerprint databases, too, all without leaving any kind of paper trail? DNA, too?

Ultimately, that has to catch up with him.wink.gif

Which is why I suggested the intern might figure in. I agree there must be a purpose in introducing a new serial killer this late and the way the intern was almost casually killed off after the long setup the character had makes me think that storyline isn't done yet.

Course, after last year nothing would surprise me.

Considering the intern, Louis Green, was shot in the head by Issak, I don't think he figures in it at all.....

Um, I said the storyline, not him personally. I'm not erxpecting a Walking Dead twist to the show smile.gif

This season's heavy was Deb - she doesn't reject Dexter from minute 1 of the first episode.
LaGuerta is setting up all season for next year, unless they want to shock us, but the cliff
looks like either the firestarter and or Hanna's death giving away Dex to LaGuarta
for the final run. Matthews could make it interesting by protecting the Morgans, even with
knowledge of the real events or respect for his old friend.

People on other boards actually think there will be a big death 'ala Rita' but it can't be Deb.
The heavy is inside Miami Metro for the final season. A Guess of course wink.gif
post #5518 of 6855
Well, Quinn's a goner, for sure, probably along with his girlfriend. Wouldn't surprise me if it was George that'll do him/them in, making George's inevitable exit by Dex (or Hanna) that much more "righteous". It could also be Angel since they've finally given him a chance for happiness and fulfilment after he gracefully retires from the force. If that's not a setup for a heroic death I'm not a 'Dexter' fan. wink.gif

While everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I can respect that, I have to disagree.

I personally think this is the weakest season to date. It had so much potential as last season ended with Deb finding out, but it's just not materialized into anything exciting.

That and the threats to Dexter this season don't seem as dire as in season's past. I never once saw Issac as much of a threat that Dexter couldn't handle.

Now, with 3 episodes to go, they are just gonna bring up a new killer out of nowhere? It's bad enough there were more storylines going on than they needed, but they had to add another this late in the game?

I'll definitely finish up with only 3 to go, but I gotta say I'm glad this season is over soon.

There was no season long heavy this year. You could argue it was Deb (a twist)
Issac had potential to be one of the best, and his arc was a first in the series.
Let's give credit where it's due. Not a typical one on one. The tension was there.
