Pretty much what I said earlier in the thread.
They're just starting to administer the drugs and he looks out through the window to the observation gallery.
"And in the gallery are all the people that Dexter killed—including the Trinity Killer and the Ice Truck Killer (his brother Rudy), LaGuerta who he was responsible killing, Doakes who he's arguably responsible for, Rita, who he's arguably responsible for, Lila. All the big deaths, and also whoever the weekly episodic kills were. They are all there.
"That's what I envisioned for the ending of Dexter. That everything we've seen over the past eight seasons has happened in the several seconds from the time they start Dexter's execution to the time they finish the execution and he dies. Literally, his life flashed before his eyes as he was about to die. I think it would have been a great, epic, very satisfying conclusion."
This is good stuff.

Exactly what I thought.

Angel and Joey, after viewing the video, both considered this was "self-defense."
Essentially, rubber-stamping Dex's story.
IMO, very much something real cops would have done under the situation.
given that he has a kid and there is nothing we've seen from Hannah that would lead Dexter to believe that she would continue to take care of Harrison.
But then not to have the strength of conviction to follow through and have Dexter die in the storm was really chickensh!t.
What made it worse was Dexter "disappearing" into a logging camp in The Great White North.
I call B.S. on that.
This series should have ended in the electric chair....plain and simple.OR
with the scene at the precinct with Joey and Angel giving Dex those looks of disbelief after viewing the video.
No words, no nothing, just stares....and CUT
Then the audience could choose their own ending (with regard to the ultimate fate of Dex).
Oh well, a lost opportunity....Edited by oink - 9/23/13 at 12:16am
