No time to stall, the Dexter finale is days away

Last week’s penultimate episode of Dexter was in the spirit of this entire season, which is laziness. When actors act like people who’ve read the script instead of characters in real situations, all tension is lost.

As an overall point to the stupidity of this season, why is it important that Dexter leave the country WITH Blondie McPoisoner, creating a far easier target to catch?  Why not send her away immediately and have Dex casually join her, say, two months later?  Because that would defeat the tension, which still ended up a deflated balloon in lieu of nothing.

When Elway returns the rest of Deb’s things, she kicks him out but is not smart enough to OPEN THE FUCKING BAG and check for bugs or other recording devices. Instead of going to the bedroom where Blondie McPoisoner hid, Blondie runs out into the living room with windows on every side. Glad they read the script and therefore knew Elway wouldn’t jump back around the corner and look inside, or be watching the house with binocs.

When it’s decided that Blondie will stay at a hotel (FINALLY) why does it have to be a hotel near the airport? Those are the first places Marshal Windblown Hair and Elway would check. Of course, it didn’t help that Deb and Blondie have one last heartfelt IN FRONT OF THE HOTEL and Blondie’s not wearing anything–not even a ballcap–to disguise herself.

Dexter not killing Saxon? WTF is this idiocy? To make it even more embarrassing, Dex says something like, “You’ll die, but in the electric chair.” In Florida, the electric chair was replaced by lethal injection in 2000 (though it can still be requested).

One more time:  Dexter not killing Saxon? WTF IS THIS IDIOCY!  If you had a chance to kill someone who had threatened your entire family, would you leave it up to the fucking courts to take care of them?

Marshal Windblown Hair got killed by Saxon?  If the good Marshal was just that, and a new manhunt for Saxon had just been announced by the media, wouldn’t Marshal Hair have a police radio in his car, what with being in law enforcement and all?  If not that, wouldn’t his cell phone immediately light up? Modern cell phones are connected to the Emergency Alert System for weather warnings. So Marshall Hair’s phone has nothing?

Unlike the last few weeks, I watched the coming attractions for this Sunday’s finale. Didn’t care too much and am not going to look for clues on how it all ends, though I read somewhere that Jennifer Carpenter wanted Deb to die.

Dexter hasn’t purely been Dexter since Season 4.  Dexter should not have changed so much over the seasons, but what’s done is done. Guess we’ll all have to go back to our lives.
