Storyline

Still coming to terms with Dr. Vogel's death, Dexter wants to eliminate Oliver Saxon before he, Harrison and Hannah head off to South America. He also has a lot of personal items to tie up including selling his condo. Saxon shows up as a prospective buyer and offers Dexter a deal: they stop going after each other and go their own way. Dexter is non-committal and, having located his kill room, sets a trap for him. Meanwhile, U.S. Deputy Marshall Clayton is following Deb, certain that she will lead him to Hannah. Dexter is continuing to reevaluate his priorities and his final choices have an impact on several key players. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Daniel Vogel tells Dexter "Miami is a great city" and that he "loves the cuban food". This almost identical to part of Dexter's first lines on the show. He also comments on the low murder solve rate, something Dexter commented on in the first episode. See more »

Goofs

In former episode, Dexter hugs dying Evelyn, who's heavily bleeding from her throat. He's wearing gloves. At the beginning of this episode, Dexter is washing his hands, literally soaked with blood, like if he was bare handed. Instead, his shirt has just some small spots of blood... See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] Vogel warned me I've been straddling two worlds, and I ignored her. For that, she paid the price with her life. Now, I have to remove myself from her life.
[removing evidence from Vogel's house]
Dexter Morgan: I never imagined the last homicide I'd work would be one I'm now a part of. I have to call this in. I can't be seen leaving the scene of the crime. The last time I was in a pool of my mother's blood, I was too young to do anything about it, but I'm no longer a child.
Dexter Morgan: [...]

It's sad what happened to the Dexter series
16 September 2013 | by topias-mattinenSee all my reviews

Well as person who has watched the series from the beginning and has started to read the books as well, I've just got to say that season 8 has made me hate the whole TV series in general. I mean the potential of this show was just unlimited but season 8 has brought it all down. No goddamn logic anymore - in anything that's happened!

The top 10 worst rated episodes of Dexter contain 5 episodes from season 8. And that's not including the 11th one. So thank you, creative minds of Dexter's eight season, for a really swell job. Sorry about the tone, I'm just thinking about what happened to one of my favorite series.
