It's the beginning of the end for charming Miami forensics expert Dexter Morgan (Golden Globe® Winner Michael C. Hall) as all 12 season eight episodes bring to rest the critically acclaimed hit series. He's spent his days solving crimes and his nights committing them, but never before has Dexter had to deal with a more abhorrent and deranged enemy than he does now: himself. Six months after the stunning murder of Lt. LaGuerta, Dexter's estranged sister Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) tries to cope with her guilt in her brother's crimes, while an emotionally vulnerable Dexter comes face-to-face with a psychopathologist who knows the code that has motivated his every murder. Filled with the dark twists and revelations that Dexter fans relish, season eight finishes Dexter's twisted journey with a bloody amazing send-off that will haunt fans forever.

Possible Spoilers

It's very hard for me to mark down such an excellent series such as Dexter and maybe as a fan I should not have built up my expectations. There are three principal themes that season 8 follows, as we see Dexter forced to revisit his past when he comes across Dr Evelyn Vogel, a woman who claims to have structured the code for him alongside Dexter's father Harry. The season deals with a new serial killer in Miami that, almost surgically removes pieces of the victims brains. Lastly we see Debra beginning to self-destruct as she is unable to deal with the fact that she murdered LaGuerta - who was also mentor and friend?

I am sorry to say that Quinn's narrative, seems to be almost a filler if not a distraction here, since season 7 the Quinn character seems hold little or no worth as an associated character in Dexter. This is a season where the intricate machinations of the `code' are looked at. Some of the season's 12 episodes are good while others are not so good. However, if I were rating the overall series I would, without doubt give the series 5 stars - as it stands I would give this last season 4

This review contains spoilers and must be taken in context. I have watched all of Dexter's entire box sets from beginning to end, so I can only review S8 as a concluding part to a long running saga. I cannot review this without giving away the plot, or without sounding annoyed, so be warned.

Let's be clear: This season was the last chance for the writers to redeem themselves, to restore the tension, mystery, intrigue and suspense to Dexter and pull everything together in a satisfying concluding act that answered the key question of what happens when Dexter finally gets exposed. The death of a key person at the end of S7 was a perfect trigger for the net to close in on Dexter and for Miami Metro to turn Miami upside down looking for the killer.

The opening two episodes of S8 seemed to be nicely pushing us toward a manhunt with Dexter in the spotlight, with the smart and unflappable Dr. Vogel seemingly teasing Dexter with hints and suspicions. So it seemed that S8 would become a brilliant test of Dexter's ability to deflect suspicion while trying to survive long enough to kill a cruel bad guy.

But then the writers decided not to bother. Instead they brought back Hannah and the pathetic fatal attraction storyline. Then they revealed this season's killer to be a bit-part character who'd only spoke two lines. (At this point it became clear they were making it up as they went along). Then they introduced a possible protege for Dexter (a teenage killer) to teach 'the code'... but then killed him, off-screen, for no reason. Then they killed Vogel, on-screen, for no reason. Then they killed Debs, off-screen, for no reason. Then they killed the sub plots for Angel, Masuka and Quinn by simply abandoning them mid-story and never mentioning them again.

Spoilers ahead, but really: if you haven't seen this series yet, that's the least of your problems

Sad to say, this season managed to exceed my worst expectations. Okay, it started out decently by introducing Charlotte Rampling as Dr Vogl, Harry's counsel and originator of the code, but even then you have to ask: Why has she never, ever been mentioned before? Aside from that, there was also - for me - the memory of S7's rather bungled ending, with LaGuerta getting killed off by Debs in an offhand, anticlimactic way, and this program's now-customary inter-seasonal memory dump. A quick funeral and then on with the show is all it takes here, and apart from Debbie going all melodramatic and doing the customary "drowning my sorrows and hating everyone" bit, LaGuerta doesn't seem to have left much of a mark.

The Vogl storyline, meanwhile, unravels in a welter of red herrings that, inexplicably, bring the Morgans closer together ("The family that kills together..." jokes Debbie, which goes against pretty much every character trait on display so far). At what looked suspiciously like a mid-season break cliffhanger, Hanna McKay reappears to drug Dexter and....um, leave him somewhere. Just because she can. There follows a bizarre alliance of "good" serial killers, the promising idea of a protogee (don't get too attached to him) before the season stumbles towards its uncertain conclusion. In previous seasons, despite all the plot holes and implausibilities, there's been a forward momentum, a tension, that's kept me watching. This season lacks anything like that, as if everyone had just given up on it and were randomly throwing out half-baked ideas and making it up as they go along.

First of all I don't get why so many people are so negative about s8?! Is it one of the weakest seasons of dexter?? Yes but it's still brilliant with plenty of twists and excellent drama, every season of dexter is brilliant and other shows except a couple of rare exceptions (Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, Walking Dead, Banshee, Prison Break, 24) aren't even in the same league not even close, I think some fans felt let down by the ending and expected something spectacular but then they'd have to carry it on (which I've heard rumours about may happen) ok I'm not going to lie they could have done a better ending infact a much better ending but it certainly don't ruin the rest of what went on before(as some ediots say it does! How??!!) can't help but feel for dexter cos he ends up alone and in sorrow. The only ending that would have ruined dexter would have be the old it was all a dream ending!! The Brain Surgeon is a decent bad guy not up to the standards of Trinity or The Ice Truck Killer but who is?? Take my advice watch for yourselves and make up your own mind and be honest with yourselves. This season is still So much better than 95% of the shows, that just proves how good Dexter is!! Always 5 stars
