Goodbye Dexter

Huh. So that is how the writers decided to end Dexter? Hmm. Not really sure what I think of that. Sad a few characters had to goโ€ฆ For the most part, it was a pretty remarkable series. I thought Michael C. Hall was incredible in the role. Iโ€™m sad the series is overโ€ฆ but it was certainly time. Goodbye Dexter.

โ€ฆyeah so Iโ€™ve been pondering the ending. I guess mentally it makes some sense but emotionally it was pretty empty. Dex essentially puts himself in self-defined isolation (a punishment?) away from what was looking like a promising future. His reasoning was that he hurts everyone in his life with the final straw being his sister. Fine. Got that. I just felt the ending should have went to one of the extreme emotional endsโ€ฆ Either he was captured and executed or he makes a flight and ends up living happily ever after in Argentina with Hanna and Harrison. As much of an anti-hero as the character was, the ending I wanted was for him to overcome? the dark passenger and end his days in Argentina without another kill. Oh well, hopefully Breaking Bad wonโ€™t disappoint. The lovely Yvonne Strahovski will help me to forget the weak? cop-out? ending.
