This season was an insult to our collective intelligence. I'm as willing as the next guy to suspend disbelief when called upon to pretend that Miami Metro encounters a new diabolical serial killer, oh, every 12 months or so. But, please don't ask me also to forget how simple things work! They are asking us to pretend that we don't know that caller ID even from a cell phone will register on the 911 system; that nobody from Miami Metro a) listened to the 911 call or b) recognized Dexter's voice (which even I recognized immediately when I heard it on those car commercials); that Dexter was able to get an unconscious body off the roof of a building without a) anyone seeing him do it or b) being caught on the surveillance system with which all self-respecting ultra-modern skyscrapers are currently equipped, etc, etc, etc!!! It seems like this season, in their haste to get to the part where they shock us with the whole psuedo-incestuous Deb-Dexter love thing, the writers didn't bother to make anything else make sense. This season was just silly.

@ Tugboat Jackson: LOL! I agree. Every time they said "tableau," I wanted to puke!

I guess I'm in the minority. I loved this season. I reran many scenes. Was fascinated by the paintings. Didn't see it coming that the professor was dead all that time. I don't care about the little things that may not happen IRL like waiting for Dexter before going into the last house. If 90% makes sense I can overlook the 10% that doesn't.
Although, I HATE the ending. Deb is suddenly in-love with her brother, so stalking him she finds out his secret. I wondered how they'll dig themselves out of this.

"Why? Simply because the script called for it."

Or could it be that if he took Harrison too early his plan would be foiled? He had to time it (in his mind) perfectly with the eclipse. That's why waiting for another several hours made more sense.

"and the end result was... nothing. It was just Quinn telling Batista he won't be getting transferred)."

Uh, please tell me you don't actually believe that's where it ends. If so, you're an idiot. It's clearly set up for the next season. Just because that's where the scene ended, doesn't mean Quinn has any say in the matter. Of course "the moment" is what will be discussed. That's what the writers wanted. Just because these other issues don't matter as much, doesn't mean they aren't appropriate in the episode.

You're clearly just stating your own opinions without using any logic whatsoever.

@ Snoozan Susan youre right!
I just hope that Deb wont be too depressed about it. I mean yeah of course she will be, but i have seen enough of the crying in the corner - Deb.!!! But i feel sorry for her.. even her brother is a serial killer. Thats pretty shit I have to admitt ;)
I just hope she wont help him killing people now.. that would be shit.

@Rick B.
That is called "Ellipsis".
Anyway, this season sucks.

Did anyone else notice that it took Travis about ten seconds to paint that pretty detailed portrait of Dexter? Now that was a bit far fetched. Even so I enjoyed watching the characters this season, albeit less than last year with Lumen which was my favorite so far. The interaction between Dex & Deb is a bit weird for me since I know the actors broke up in real life. I didn't find out until a few weeks ago that the actor playing Travis was Tom Hank's son! Don't see him topping his father in his craft.

I'm just glad I won't have to hear the terms 'dark passenger' or 'tableau' for the next 10 months. Enough!

I don't think that the plot line of Deb + Dex is going anywhere. During all of Deb's therapy sessions, she is realizing that she picks all the wrong men (Ice Truck Killer, Lundee who was murdered in front of her, ex partner Quinn) and is consoled by her brother time and time again. This explains why she could be "in love" with him. However, now she has seen Dexter kill DDK. Where will season 7 go with this? Her love will be shattered because ONCE AGAIN, Deb has chosen the wrong man to love. Dexter is not the savior she thinks he is. Killing serial killers is still murder in her eyes.
