Dude, I gotta say, EXTREMELY disappointed in the finale. I thought that was a very, very lazy effort, and nothing significant happened at all.
I don’t even have the time to rant about everything, but to name a few….
How the heck is the barrel girl case solved? Seriously?
Quinn has to know Dexter killed Liddy right…. So he just lets it slide because Dexter “fixed” the blood sample? THAT’S THE END OF THE LIDDY INVESTIGATION??? No way! Liddy’s last 5 calls were to Quinn…. They would have investigated the crap out of him, he would have had to give up the name of the person he hired Liddy to spy on, and Dexter would have been caught. I thought for sure Quinn was going to die, because that is the only way to avoid that conundrum.
Lumen just leaves? She’s done? She murders 3 people, and she just goes back to her regular life? That’s a lazy casting influenced decision there….. Clearly Julia Stiles wasn’t coming back for another season… they should have killed her off…. Unless of course they plan on bringing her back in the future….. Ok I changed my mind on this one….. nice job leaving this potential plot point open.
How the hell did Deb “Call this in?” What did she call in? Clearly Dex and Lumen took Jordan’s body…. So what does Deb say that she saw? How do they explain the car crashed on the property?
Here’s what I thought should have happened… DEB NEEDED TO FIND OUT. The show already clearly surpasses any sense of reality, and has for several years. They can’t go on forever with the same kind of plots, and no one finding out. Stuff has to hit the fan eventually. The show can’t have that many years left. They should have blown it up in the finale. Deb finding out, Quinn getting killed, something happening to one of LaGuerta/Batista. Maybe it was too cliché to end on another cliffhanger, but my god, how do you end season 4 the way you did, then end season 5 with everything all good?
Am I reading too much into it by replaying Debra saying to Dex something along the lines of “You’ve gotta be glad this is all over?” Is that a hint that she knows?
