When Dexter hands Deb the pen that was used to poison Sal, he said to test the pen for aconitine and Hannah's prints. However, Hannah herself had said in a previous episode that she used a different untraceable toxin for Sal and the double toxscreen showed just that. See more »


[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] I've never thought about the future. About growing old. Maybe because the future has never been kind to people like me. Or their loved ones.
17 Year Old Harrison: [walking to his car] Bye, dad.
Dexter Morgan: Bye, Harrison...
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] But suddenly my future seems very possible. And growing old is not only a possibility. It seems appealing.

User Reviews

Amazing dialogue, wonderful to see how far the characters have developed
10 December 2012 | by abdul-muktadirSee all my reviews

In a nutshell, this episode was probably by far the greatest in this season; and characterised what is best about Dexter from all the amazing seasons. From the dialogues between Dexter and Hannah, which are raw and deep, to emotional scenes between Dex and Deb; the writers have done a fantastic job in really capturing the raw emotion that has developed incredibly during this season. The relationship between Deb and Dex has so masterfully been crafted right from season 1, to this season, where we have to admit this has to be one of the greatest character developments in TV history.

In many regards, this being the penultimate season, has really had to deliver a sucker punch of astonishing grip and emotion; safely speaking, this has surplussed all expectations. I genuinely can't wait for the last episode, it really does promise something incredible.
