*It's very hard to review this season without spoilers as such mild spoilers akin to what's been in trailers will be included but if you'd rather go in with no knowledge best to avoid.

Following the blood soaked finale of season 4 Dexter has had a lot to live up to, five fell short of this, six even more so with a lacklustre main villain and inconsequential stories, Dexter was showing signs of wear, maybe a season too far? However season 7 becomes a blazing return to from for the show, not perfect but a huge improvement and the most engaging the show has been since Trinity.

Picking up where season 6 ends (which should have been end of 5) Dexter faces the consequences for the murder of Travis before his sister's eyes but soon finds himself with bigger problems, a key figure of the kashca brotherhood targets him for vengeance and he finds himself a new love interest in the guise of the damaged and possibly dangerous Hannah.

Season 7 smartly decides to recognise its past; Dexter as a show has a tendency to hit the reset button at the end of a season with the exception of Rita, each season acts as a separate story rather than acknowledging what came before. Season 7 finally picks up on the rich tapestry the show has weaved for itself, connecting the dots right back to the start and how they play into present day, it's a smart move, one the gives the show new and exciting direction.

Dexter's revelation to Deb finally gives the two something new to do together and gives Jennifer Carpenter a real chance to shine, as the emotional toil takes hold of her, confused and conflicted about what to do next, a big improvement over the caricature she has become the last couple of seasons, pouting off potty mouthed one liners.

A must have for Dexter fans, this is possibly the best series yet. The scenes between Dexter and Deb are powerful and moving, the plot twists and turns as unpredictable as ever. Major developments for several of the long standing characters and a shock ending. Can't wait to see the last series.

Do not read this if you don't want to know what happens in Season 7 of Dexter.

Right then. Let the moaning begin.

I am a long-time fan of Dexter but even I have to admit it. At this point in the journey, the quality of Dexter's storylines and characters is deteriorating badly. Unlike most reviewers I really liked Season 6 and even Season 5 before that. For me the worst of the lot was season 2 with it's shambolic "fatal attraction" plot. ...Which is probably why I disliked Season 7 so much: What we have here is essentially another shambolic "fatal attraction" plot with a few random sub plots thrown in. The whole thing feels like a re-hash of Season 2.

Here is what I mean. Remember that Season 2 had Dexter up against the femme fatale Layla while also contending with Doakes who suspects him of being the Bay Harbour Butcher? Doakes then died when he found out for sure, before he could tell anyone. Season 2 has Dexter up against femme fatale Hannah while contending with Laguerta who suspects him of being the Bay Harbour Butcher. Laguerta then dies when she finds out for sure, before she can tell anyone. As if to confirm the re-hash, the events of Season 2 are referred to in Season 7 through flashbacks and awkward back references.

But the lazy re-use of an old plot is the least of the problems in Season 7. Let's look at the characters. The ensemble cast are woefully underused this time around, the comic genius of Masuka barely sees the light of day, while Angel is conveniently set aside the events to open a restaurant for no reason other than give him some reason to exist on screen. The emaciated skinny cop (whose name I forgot) starts an affair with a stripper who is part of a murder investigation. (Yawn, seen it all before).

You may have guessed by now that I am becoming a box set junkie. The Dexter series is one that I found intriguing from the start. A likeable character ridding the world of serial killers that managed to evade legal retribution, a serial killing serial killer if you will. Who couldn't become endeared to such a character? As each season ends the writers try very hard to come up with ever more fantastic plots and crescendos towards each finale. I found it incredible that they managed to extrapolate it as long as they did, however it remained entertaining until the final series.

I have decided not to watch Season 8 as I have read bits about it and don't want any more let downs.I wanted to see some hope for Dexter and Debra even if it meant living in hiding.If I thought that I would be left without hope for them I would not have watched in the first place .The acting has been great but life is hard enough and I will no longer watch.
