  2. These lasts two seasons are going to be Epic! I've been waiting since season 4 for some serious changes to happen to Dexter "The Serial Killer" he's embraced more of his human side and in doing so has been sloppier with his moon lighting, I'm glad they are finally going to show that and hopefully have him realize that he's more of a man then before but less of a hunter. He always talks about losing the dark passenger, but could he live as just a normal father n brother.

  3. I think he could live without taking lives, if he really wanted to. Dexter just doesn't want to quit yet, because he's having too much fun.

  6. I will say even with the slow movement of s06, they gave us what we have all been waiting for since the first season when Deb woke up a minute too late too see what was really going on! So regardless of your feelings for s06, if you like the show the sixth season still is going down as being EPIC.. Deb made Lieutenant, Angel got stoned, Dexter danced! Then of course Deb finally catches him in the act which truly is the way the world ends!

    I think your right about him being able to quit though, especially because of 6.12 with Harrison being so close to danger, before his dark passenger helped protect the children around him. Like in s3e03 when he is comparing the grocery store to the modern day Sarengeti and his "highly tuned senses alert him of a predator" which turns out to be a pedophile with an interest for Astor. It has alwayz put those close to him in harms way but now HArrison.

    Just a theory but maybe in this season he'll try to stop serial killing, destroy his dark passenger and realize he'll never truly be rid of his dark passenger. The show started as the life of a seria

  7. L killer, raised to try and be normal. Watching him embrace his humanity and realizing he's not incapable of feelings was essential for the growth of his character, but i wanna see the show go full circle and end with him realizing that no matter what he does he cannot completely change who he is and while he's tried not to be... He'll always be a serial killer, and while he may be, he no longer has to be a Lone wolf, and though his nature was to kill, Harry and the relationships he's formed has nurtured him into something else.

    N I know how pissed everyone gets when I say this but I think the best way to end the show, while remaining true to everything else would be for Dexter to be found out by Miami metro and A.flee Florida forever on the run from the police. B. Have him be found out and caught and arrested everyone to finally talk to the real Dexter. ,C, found out and give his life to save an innocent like Deb or Harrison, kinda like going out the way he lived giving his life to protect the innocent. Like it or hate it Dexter has killed almost a hundred people, you can't just stop killing and live a normal life... Which would be shown great by bringing Lumen back and have her fucked up maybe seducing n killing men. And It's been said and shown in soany ways that a serial killer can't go on forever. So for the end to reply close things up it would need to be something like that... Maybe not one of those but something that's follows all the lessons he's learned from mistakes he has made.

  11. There are so many people on the blog's and message boards that want Lumen brought back, and the writers aren't idiots im sure they read the message boards, so there Is no way they don't bring her back in some way for something.. as long as they can get stiles to do it n she isn't busy

    We all want you on Dexter. Those other projects are fun and everything, but Dexter is Everything in between.

  13. Lol guessing those are all Julia Stiles projects for 2012? Even if they don't bring her back for 7, if she came back in 8 she could stir some Shit up, break some more hearts.

  14. I read on one of Stiles' IMDb pages that 3 of those projects 9:36 listed are already post production.
    Stiles has some rights on The Bell Jar so I guess she can do that whenever she wants.

    She is not stupid. If she receives an offer, she'll take it.
    I'd be glad if it happened :-)

  15. Probably not going to happen. There are rumors that Julia Stiles somehow factored into MCH and JC's divorce. If that and the whole story about the two having dinner is true, then it's unlikely that the Dexter crew will ask for someone who factored into their main characters' actors divorce again.

  16. Wow didn't know about ne of that. Yeah I don't see Jennifer Carpenter would be cool with all that. Too bad.

  17. It was just a rumor that never found the oxygen to last more than a couple of weeks in the media. I doubt the Powers That Be give a damn what a few bottom-feeding media outlets write. If Lumen can be part of a great story, they'll call Stiles back.

  18. I think reintroducing Lumen would be too contrived at this point, the way she left was absolutely horrendous, but her story has been wrapped up for good, imo. Debra would be the better choice for the 'saving Dexter from his Dark Passenger' role, either as a sister or something more, doesn't really matter to me. Ultimately, she's the most important adult in Dexter's life, more than Lumen would be in the next two seasons. The only difference between Lumen and Deb is that there'd really be no taboo with her, but ultimately, Dexter doesn't need to fall in love with someone, he just needs to love someone who loves him back (whether in a platonic or romantic sense is debatable).

  19. WTF

    Lumen is gone, thank god.

    I just want Deb and Dex scenes from here on out. They can just sit there over cereal and stare at each other for all I care - and I'd still watch. The characters have history together, deep, complex,amazing, history.

    One of the reasons I like Deb so much is the pure joy Dexter derives from being around her. All his best moments are with Deb, all his "real smiles" - in season 3, when she has on the full body condom and he is splatting heads on her, it's basically one of the only time's in the series that we see Dexter "happy" is smiling and laughing at Deb and her reactions, nothing fake. In fact if you watch carefully, all those "genuine" moments for Dexter come with Deb, nobody else. She is the only person who can lift the sadness from him.

    He cared for Lumen, but she just added more sadness.

  20. I have been a faithful Dexter fan since it began. I love Dexter, he does what we all want to do - remove those that do not deserve to exist. My least favorite season was the one with Jimmy Smits. I understand why Rita had to die, and honestly they turned her into such a whiney person so I haven't missed her character at all.

    But season 6 was awful!! Well not totally. I liked the story line with the angel of death. But seriously: Deb in love with her brother?????!!!!!!!! Envy, anger, sibling rivalry, struggle to meet expectations are all issues that make sense and make good story lines. I could even see her wanting to kill him since she feels she never measured up to him in her father's eyes. But seriously, the story is just taking a sick and twisted road that I won't watch. I hope the writers don't decide to pursue that story line. Consentrate more on developing Dexter's lighter side and his new sense of humanity!!

    1. What better sense to focus on humanity, than falling in love with the one person who has always meant the most to him.

      Some of the best feel good and tragic love stories of all time were adopted sibling love stories - Aragorn/Arwen from Lord of the Rings, Wuthering Heights, Knight in the Panther Skin, and so on.

  21. No more of Dexters lighter side we seen enough, we need to see him go full circle

  22. It does make sense but with Dexter being the way he is I dunno how it'll work out

  23. Lumen's character was retarded. I hope they don't bring her back. I think Deb being in love with Dexter is dumb too. Finally she found out about his dark passenger though. Season 6 was better than season 5, I think the season with Lumen in it was the worst one of all. Looking forward to season 7, really curious to see where it is going to go!

  25. I don't get the idea of why people are so up in arms about the potential of incest, they are not related. That being said, I think it's a horrible idea to hook up Dexter and Deb because deep down Deb is crazy and annoying. I see a lot of potential for her to be another Lila and I think the writers should run with it. Deb's always been unnaturally possessive of Dexter and between finding out he's a serial killer and the idea of him rejecting her could absolutely push her over the edge along with everything else she's been through.

    I agree with Rob V. Let this thing go full circle. Dexter killed Brian/Rudy in order to protect Deb. It would be an ironic twist of fate if protecting Deb had dire consequences and forced him to have to make a similar decision at some point.
