The Night has come, the night of all nights
After brilliant 8 years, we farewell the most original and bloody series of all time. Dexter has ended in the most controversial way a show could end. I am pretty sure it will take a lot talks and discussions among fans, whether it was good or bad. But definitely, it could be better.
Remember the Monsters? is not alike any of other episodes. It's mostly about Dexter and Debra, because Dexter is blaming himself for everything he has done to sister and for that reason, he tries to make everything better again. We see a lot flashbacks to the time when Morgan became a father, his relationship with Deb and all sweat memories connecting those two.
I liked the ending (though I've imagined it quite differently) because it's happy and sad the same time. It still arises some questions and most importantly, whether Dexter was a real monster or he was just a victim of Dr. Vogel?! The same time, he really regrets not killing Olver Saxon.
I've thought a lot how would I like the show to end, do I want Dexter dead? Or maybe somebody else? Or do I want him to stay a serial killer? It is hard to say. I've been always sure that people like him do not exist - mass murderers with ethic codes, families and normal life. So, the whole show was about exploring who Dexter Morgan really was and I think last episode answers this question clearly.
Jennifer Carpenter gives another amazing performance and I believe she is one of the best parts of last season, alongside to Charlotte Rampling.
I know most of fans are disappointed but I am not. Ending a show with a cliffhanger is not good, if we don't want the show to last forever. The END shall be logical, putting a full stop point to the plot, there must not be any WHAT HAPPENS NEXT and Remember the Monster? brings all this on the screen.
But on the other hand, I don't know what to do, I've personally spent four full years with Dexter and now I have no idea which show to wait until next year (There are some, none like Dexter). Once again, the last season could have been a lot more shocking, but the actual finale did work for me.
