Michael C. Hall is not looking at the upcoming “Dexter” series finale through a rose-colored bloodslide; instead, he’s smartly rather aware that not everyone is probably going to like what the series puts out. That’s not a slam against the series by any means, it’s just a remarkably-refreshing bit of self-awareness about how no one ever seems to universally love the ending to any series out there.
Speaking in an interview with NBC News in preparation of the big episode airing two weeks from tonight, the actor was quick to suggest that there are going to be different reactions here to what happens, and some of that is going to be an intentional move on the show’s part to leave something up for interpretation:
“I don’t think the ending will leave any huge questions in the air like ‘The Sopranos’ did in terms of ‘What was the next frame?’ or ‘Where are we headed?’ There will be some interpretation left for people to debate about. … There will be a pretty broad spectrum to the response: Some people will be satisfied, some people will wish it had gone down differently, some people will be both of those things!”
What is also somewhat nice about the series finale is that there really is not much idea about what the final few seconds of the season will be. It’s a little easy to pick up on some context clues when it comes to the show, including that there is an Oliver / Dexter showdown coming at some point, but it’s far harder to determine what the end result of all of this will be.
