Moving into the final two episodes of “Dexter,” is there any way that the show can undo much of the past five or six weeks? For a season that started off as the best since season 5, it has quickly gone downhill thanks to a few unsurprising moments, the return of Hannah McKay, and the rest of Miami Metro remaining completely oblivious as to who Dexter is and what he is up to, even following LaGuerta’s death last year.
It basically feels almost like Showtime was unsure of whether or not this would be the final season during most of production, and the show had to shift course around halfway through once they realized that it was. This is why we always prefer that if such a decision is made, it should be announced both for fans and production before filming even starts. That way, there is no confusion on anyone’s part.
Now, let’s turn to the sneak peek below. Our Big Bad here in Oliver Saxon arrives at Dexter’s apartment with an interesting offer: He leaves Dexter alone, and in turn Dexter leaves him alone. They go their separate ways, and no harm is done to either of them. But as Dexter points out, the timing here is somewhat odd given that he just watched Saxon kill Dr. Vogel.
Given the position that he is in, this may actually be the right move for Dexter to make. If he continues to pursue Saxon while trying to prioritize getting out of Miami with Hannah, it is possible that he could leave someone else vulnerable in the same way that he did Zach Hamilton. If he wants to pursue justice, then he needs to shelve his plans with Hannah for now. The problem is if he does so, they both run the risk of being taken down by the U.S. Marshal in town.
