I agree. Dex has worked on unsolved crimes for years. Also because of his Dark Passenger he has raised paranoia and hyper-vigilance to a high order. In short, I think Dexter is a better "cop" than most cops who carry a badge, at least where his own self interest is involved.

Guys...have a pretty good hint at what's in store for the finale...

The title of the episode is Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
"Surprise, Motherf***er"

Who used to use that expletive all the time?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Dokes is alive

My guess for season 8
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Dex is on the run from the police, Deb, Dokes, and maybe Hannah...

If it's true, which I don't think it is, then that makes the finale easy to predict.

Did they not find his remains at the cabin? Also if the preview is any hint, I don't think Deb is going to be chasing Dexter, she's going to be on the run with him. There's just no way Dokes is alive, I suspect that was a dream or flashback. If he's been alive the entire time of all these past seasons...wtf has he been doing.

mmmmm...

I'm pretty sure they identified Doake's body parts after the explosion. My memory says there was a burnt up Doakes torso in a scene there. However, if they could find some work around to explain that away, then it would be a nice satisfying twist.

When has Dexter NOT been easy to predict?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
They found remains, but since it was an explosion, did they ever make a positive ID on the body? It's been six years since I watched it, but wasn't the body of the person Dex initially killed also there? (one of the men who killed his mother, and who was renting the shack) Also the fact they've been showing Dokes in the "previously on" lately makes me think he's due for a return...

Added this comment, because I kept editing my original and I don't think you guys are probably going to go back and see it under the spoiler text.

Well I can say this season is NOT at all easy to predict. smile.gif It's really the first season where he doesn't have an arch rival to defeat. I think it's the reason why most people are enjoying this season more than the previous few. It's a change in the formula.

I am pretty sure they did in fact confirm it was Dokes in season 2 (I recall his DNA matching the torso, but I could be wrong). Also, the surprise Mother F-er quote was used by Dokes during seasons 1 and 2 I believe, so there's no way he's alive IMO.

Recovering from near death. smile.gif It would be quite a stretch, but I'd love to see him back.

If it's not a dream, the only possibility is Doakes comes on-board with Dex in place of Harry. Not sure if I like the idea, but it would lead to some really great back and forth from the old days.

This all goes back to what I was saying yesterday about me believing that LaGuerta has more information than she's letting on.

Nielsen Notes (Cable)
'Dexter' breaks all Showtime records: Will it change the show's endgame?
By James Hibberd, EW.com's 'Inside TV' Blog - Dec. 11, 2012

Showtime is on fire this fall.

Dexter and Homeland have once again hit new series-high ratings.

Dex delivered 2.6 million viewers — the biggest audience ever for a Showtime original series. Normally such records are broken during season finales or premieres, not during penultimate episodes like this one. Homeland also keeps closing the gap with Dexter, now up to 2.4 million viewers — up 9 percent from last week.

Including their Sunday repeats, Dexter had 3.1 million and Homeland had 2.6 million for the night. Both shows have their season finales next week. Chances are strong Showtime will enjoy another round of happy headlines.

Question: Showtime’s previously stated non-definitive rough-draft plan has been to end Dexter next season. The rising popularity of Homeland makes this easier to follow through on, because now the network has a successful fall replacement hit. But will Showtime really pull the trigger on Dexter when its numbers keep shattering records? Everybody involved with the long-time serial killer drama makes it sound like the only factor for deciding when to conclude the show is its creative storyline — which, let’s face it, would probably benefit from some closure in the near future. But ratings momentum like this, when coupled with a real choice on the table, is unavoidably influential too.

It will be easier to have an opinion on this topic after next week’s finale. Until then, what do you think? How much longer should Showtime air Dexter?

The idea of Doakes being alive is absurd unless the FBI decided to not bother to make sure that the body was Doakes whom they suspected of being a serial killer which I guess could happen in a drama which has no regard for internal consistency. I'm pretty sure that Doakes is a vision/imagined scenario.

I'm hoping that it turns out that Arlene did some copy-catting of Hannah and is the one who poisoned Deb. It really doesn't make any sense that it would be Deb or Hannah so I hope they don't try to pass that off on us.

For Deb, there's no way that she would have actually flipped her car and possibly died to do it. That's just way over the top.

For Hannah, it just way too obviously implicates her while at the same time has way too low a chance of being successful. She puts some extra medication in one of the waters in her fridge. Then she has to rely on...

1) Debra grabs that water on her way out the door, and not just while hanging around the house
2) The effects happen quick enough before she gets to her destination
3) She's driving fast when she passes out (not at a stop light or in a neighborhood) and doesn't have time to pull over
4) The resulting crash actually kills her

There's no way she would rely on all of that magically coming together.

My term On-Board means in Dexter's head like Harry, not alive.

Heads-up: Michael C. Hall will be a guest on TBS' "Conan" this Wednesday night (11 p.m. ET/PT).

Interesting.

As much as I love Dexter, I kinda agree closure would be a better "fit."
How long are we to believe Dex can keep killing and never show up on a security cam?

Hard to argue with this.

Lundy states that they had confirmation on the Doakes' body via dental records.

Just from the preview and speculation. No real spoilers.
post #5696 of 6855
That's what I thought. It's not a spoiler unless it's a part of the upcoming show. If it's a preview like at the end of ep 11 that's fair and open without revealing anything, imo. Don't most people watch after the show to see what's coming next week? I do. The title isn't a spoiler.
Anyway some interesting plots.

Many people have elected not to watch the previews in heavily serialized shows like this because they often give too much away, thereby taking away from the surprises and plot twists in store next week. I fall into that camp. Many times, the previews are done by the marketing department, not the creative team. Those two groups often have different and conflicting goals.

There's a difference between the previews for the next CSI episode and a show like this one. It's just a matter of courtesy to use spoiler tags when discussing the previews, and no skin off anyone's nose. That way everyone still gets to participate in and enjoy the thread discussions. I agree that the upcoming show's title isn't a spoiler, but the previews often are.

I completely agree with this. I do think it was Hannah's roommate who poisoned Debra.

Many people do not watch previews, and since they show scenes from the next episode it is a spoiler.
post #5699 of 6855
I understand with not watching previews. This year Showtime starting emailing me on Thurs or Friday with a preview for Sundays show. I disregard this because in the past the previews have been misleading. Not wanting to
know to much of what's coming is cool. On the other hand I have never thought of a preview as a spoiler. I guess things have changed.

Well said....thanx.

Dexter is winding down as a series and many of us have invested many years in the show.
All of the big "what will ultimately become of...." is now beginning to be played out.
For alot of us geeks, we don't need many clues to figure out what will happen in the next episode(s).

After this season-ending show, we have 9 months of speculation and theories to gnaw on.
I am really looking forward to what everyone comes up with....cool.gif
