I read a TON of reviews prior to buying this season, and they almost kept me from buying it. I am a diehard Dexter fan, so I finally decided I had to see for myself. The season itself isn't too bad, although it definitely isn't one of the best either. The problem is that they focused A LOT on Deb and it kind of took away from the normal build up to catching "the killer." It was a bit disappointing to see such a strong character go through such a ROUGH time after all the show has taken her through, but I guess they want you to feel like she reached her breaking point.
Again, the season itself isn't all that bad, just not one of the best that this otherwise GREAT show has put together. The problem is the final episode. I won't ruin it for anybody (although by now you have probably already heard about it) the final episode is probably the WORST I have EVER seen. It answers questions for you, so it doesn't leave you in suspense like The Soprano's did, but it is like writers JUST released that was the LAST episode and hastily put something together!!! Not the send off this show needed!!!!
I don't watch a lot of TV that isn't sports or news, so I was kind of sad to see it end. If you are a fellow fan that just wanted to own the final season, this is worth buying. Again, the season itself isn't THAT bad! The final episode WILL leave you VERY disappointed!!!
