We want a happy ending for you, Dex — we mean Michael! A happy ending for everyone!
But then there's this other side too… maybe we don't want such a happy ending. Maybe we want shocking. Maybe we want that underlying feeling of dread that's permeated through the whole series to finally surface and be faced!
Here's what Michael C. Hall had to say, while skating around too many specifics:
"There is a sense of resolution, but there is some pretty fundamentally earthshaking things that happen as well. I'm like Dexter's press secretary, so I have to saying something without saying anything. I don't know about a happy ending. I think the question is what happens to him. Is he done in? Does he do himself in? Does he get away with it? But even if he gets away with it at this point, there have been a lot of ramifications for his behavior already. What the final verdict will be for him specifically, I can't say. As for a happy ending, I don't think we're in that territory.
"I think we're meant to be skeptical about Dexter's claims of inhumanity when we first meet him. At this point, especially given Dexter's seemingly authentic connection to his role as a father and to his son. I think it's difficult to argue that he's without the capacity of human emotion. But his ability to compartmentalize has probably developed as much as anything.”
On a Deb and Dexter romance:
“The story has certainly been moving towards some sort of epiphany or recognition on her part. I think from the beginning, storytelling-wise, Dexter and Deb had a relationship that is as central to the story of the show as any. To the extent that they've been moving towards each other one way or another. That's been in the cards since the beginning. Obviously, we've been through things personally , but we remain dear friends and fiercely committed to our work as actors on the show.”
Either way, we demand resolution! None of that cutting to black, up in the air bullshizz!
It'll be hard to imagine a world without Dexter when it reaches it's end!
Are U watching this season?? Thoughts?? How should the end the show??
