After tonight’s “Dexter” season 8 episode airs, there is only one more to go before we have made it to the fateful series finale. That in some ways is a rather scary proposition. We have been on such a long journey with many of these characters, so to make it to the point where this all could end feels just a little bit strange … especially if we are talking about the man of the hour in Dexter Morgan. We don’t know if he is going to live, just as we don’t know if he is going to die.
So should we see the slayer meet his end, be allowed to kill more or continue going about his business at the end of the day? This is a question that Aimee Garcia weighed in on in an interview with InstituteMag, where she held to a firm belief that she would rather actually prefer to see the character continue to see the light of day rather than go down to the point of no return:
“I want him to continue being the vigilante he is. Dexter is the best anti-hero ever…he also happens to be the best boss. But, now that he’s broken The Code, he might have to deal with the consequences of that. If I had my way, I’d like to see him survive and run away, but since he opened Pandora’s Box last season, that might not be possible.”
If Dexter does live, the only way we can see it happening is just if it is business as usual, and he is finally in a position where he is out of the woods of getting caught. We just have a hard time believing that, when the dust settles, he is really going to be this lucky and even to put himself in a position of walking away … especially when Hannah is around. Just in case you haven’t seen the sneak peeks yet for this coming episode, she is going to be injecting herself even more into his life.
