Dexter Recap: “Remember the Monsters?”
Wow, that was quite a finale! Unfortunately, I don’t mean that as a compliment. Before I talk about why the Dexter finale quickly earned a spot on my list of Worst Series Finales Ever, let’s talk about the episode.
Elway’s presence prevented Dexter (Michael C. Hall), Hannah (Yvonne Strahovski), and Harrison from making their flight to Argentina. In order to escape, Dexter framed Elway for planting a bomb in the airport by leaving a backpack in the waiting area.
Dexter took care of Elway, but also shut down the airport. Also, since I’m sure the airport has security tapes, he probably earned himself a spot on the No Fly List. Before they could find another means to flee, Dexter received a phone call telling him about Debra’s (Jennifer Carpenter) shooting.
Debra was awake and speaking when her friends at Miami Metro loaded her into the ambulance, and later after her surgery. Between the blood loss and the meds, she wasn’t making a whole lot of sense.
Debra was glad, at first, to see her brother by her side when she woke up after surgery. Then, she remembered telling her coworkers not to call him. She didn’t want him to come back. She wanted him to get his happy ending, because he was a good person, and deserved it.
How groggy did Deb have to be to completely forget her brother was a serial killer, and on the way out of town to go raise her nephew with another murderer? All of which she’s had a huge problem with for the last two seasons?
Anyway, she told Saint Dexter to go leave with Hannah. The doctor said she’d be fine, and they said their goodbyes again. Debra even talked about maybe visiting.
