Agreed, they didn't play the stress factor right. The best moments of all the seasons were the creepy psycho ones (Arthur Mitchell) and the times when your nervous about Dexter being caught. Not enough of either this season, and Mr. Chase was a poor actor..... I actually like Julia Stiles btw, I think she did a great job.

Agreed about Lumen.  They got rid of her the right way.  Her revenge is over, and now it's time to move on with her life.  She can go back to Chicago or wherever she's from and forget all about her ordeal and the subsequent killing spree she took part in.

 

And I find it odd that Dexter's summer is our winter.

 

I find it somewhat comforting that they didn't end the season with another cliffhanger.  It's just the end for now.  There will be new people for him to kill next year.  And really, does he have to kill someone EVERY episode?  There aren't that many deathworthy punks running around.  There's also no way he can cover his tracks in his personal life when he spends all night disposing of a body.  Eventually the day will come when he tells his family that he has to work late, and then work calls asking where he is and the kids or whoever pick up the phone say, "We thought he was at work..."  Busted.

 

I'm sure someone must have asked this before but - when does Dexter sleep?  He works all day, then he kills at night, and then he stays up late dumping bodies.  He ought to be spent beyond all recognition.

 

 

BTW I totally saw two events coming before they happened.

1. Debra letting the vigilantes go (because she watched the DVD's over and over)

2. Dexter faking the blood results

I wasn't too sure that Dexter would fake the DNA tests until the very end when Debra was getting emotional about Quinn. That plus the fact that Debra let the vigilantes go free foreshadowed what Dexter would do.

 

There was still some doubt in my mind though with Quinn getting to nosy about Dexter's "business" a la Doakes from Season 2. We all remember what happended to him. For a minute I really could've Quinn written off the show and in jail.

I would call that overreacting but I had a similar reaction after LOST season 3's finale. Hopefully next season is much better! John Lithgow set the high bar so far, imho.

Season 4 definitely set the bar high for Season 5. S5 didn't have me as excited to watch the next episode like S4 but it was still a pretty good season (compared to other shows, I think this was probably one of the weakest out of Dexter, next to S3 )
