Favorite Scene From A Movie
The scene in Jaws when Quint tells the story of when he was on the U.S. Indianapolis. And when the shark attacks the boat while they are singing a song, and how at first Quint is the only one who realizes it. The 4th of July scene too.
The final season of Dexter started off with much potential but due to its clichéd themes, poor pace, and unnecessary parts of the story that dragged on way too long it was not nearly good enough. The show should have ended at least two years ago in my opinion, because after the fourth season it went downhill a little bit. During season 6 it went way downhill. Season 7 was an improvement, but it was also barely good enough if you ask me. This season starts off great, and then just goes downhill, and hits rock bottom at its finale.
The season kicks off months after the ending of the previous season. Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) is on drugs, off the police force, and totally miserable after she shot Laguerta to keep the fact that Dexter (Michael C. Hall) is the Bay Harbor Butcher a secret. Dexter?s life is much better now, except for the fact that his relationship with her is ruined. She won?t answer his calls, and nobody can get in touch with her. She hates him. Dexter meets Dr. Evelyn Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) who wrote the book on psychopaths. She is the one that invented his code. The twist is that she came up with his code and gave it to harry. She helps him try to get back in touch with Deb. There is also a serial killer out on the loose called the ?Brain surgeon.?
This sounds good and it is very interesting so I thought it would be a good season, but certain things started happening that ruined it. There is a lot of relationship drama, which I feel like should not happen in a final season. Quinn (Desmond Harrington) is now dating Jamie Batista (Aimee Garcia). Things seem to be ok, but Quinn is fixated on Deb. It starts to damage their relationship as the season goes along, and right off the bat I felt like he would try to get back together with her. It was really obvious. They dragged that part of the story on throughout the entire season and I was completely bored of it by the end of it. Another thing is that it turns out that Masuka (C.S. Lee) was a sperm donor in college and he has a daughter. She finds him. That part of the show was weird, because they made his daughter so strange, and she just wasted time on the show. In the end that was a really boring part of the story, that didn't add anything good to the show. Why is it that shows always have to have relationship drama that distracts us from the suspense and the intensity? It tends to always kill the show.
But the part of the season that really killed it was when they brought Hannah back. I never liked her, and I felt like the show would have been better of if Dexter had just killed her in the fifth episode of the seventh season. I don?t think she is interesting at all, and I don?t like the actress who plays her. It is either a poorly scripted character, or a poorly portrayed one but she is definitely not interesting at all for me. The season started going downhill once they brought her back in my opinion.

What really made me think so poorly of this season was the way it ended. Deb dying was just a depressing way to end it, and everybody I talked to didn?t like that. I also hated the fact that they were going to try to end it by having Dexter flee the country with Hannah. I thought it was a dumb to make the big finale about weather or not he will make it out of the country with Hannah or not without being caught by the cop, and if he will be able to protect Deb from the brain surgeon. I found that when I said that ending out loud it sounded really stupid to me. However the worst part of it was how they tried to trick you into thinking that Dexter killed himself. First of all how would he survive driving his boat into a hurricane? The boat got destroyed so how would he have gotten back to shore? He would have drowned. Why did they try to trick us with that anyways? I knew that it was a fake the entire time. The worst part is making him a lumberjack in the final scene. I hated it that he would just abandon his son and the woman he loved. If he started a new life without killing people maybe he wouldn?t be able to hurt them. Those are the worst flaws of the finale.
/* End of spoilers */
The season ended poorly due to its clichés, and poor pace. Because of all the relationship drama it felt like another season. For a final season it should be rushing to get to the end, and it should be intense. It should be loaded with suspense. This season was paced like every other season on the show. The first four seasons if you ask me had much better paces. This season during the 2nd half of it I was just watching it just because I had already gotten to the final season and it felt pointless to stop. If they bring this show back I will not watch it. Even if the reviews are great. The whole show has just gotten old. I am glad it is over.
