Kick butt workout, less than kick butt series finale and new blog feature
I won't spoil it for people who haven't watched it yet but Dexter...WTF man? Here's how *I* would've done this season.
The season opens with Deb feeling guilty for what she did at the end of last season. Because Dexter has always taken care of her, she takes it upon herself to try to "fix" him and take care of him. Almost like a serial killer AA, if you will. Mid season, he's been trying and then they notice something...Harrison is showing disturbing signs of picking up Dexter's tendencies like maybe in action figure play that is beyond your "typical boy" stuff. They both are scared for him and Dexter, feeling his urges are at a peak and uncontrollable (maybe, he goes on a killing spree that scares him because he didn't follow the code), he convinces Deb to put him on the table and raise Harrison. She relents, is horrified and such but eventually sees this is the only way. Dexter sets up a kill room in a shipping container because he wants to die in blood as he was born into blood. When Deb arrives, she sees pics of all of his victims over the years from the neighbors dog to Little Chino to even Harry since he blames himself for his suicide. On another wall, all the people he's come to love as he's evolved into a more human version of himself including his co-workers, stepkids, Rita, Hannah, Deb and Harrison. He instructs her what to do with his body and how to raise Harrison into a good man. She sobs, begging him to just stop and he says he can't and she needs to put him down because he feels like a rabid dog. He tells her what kind of man he wants Harrison to be and she says something back to him dropping an F bomb and he says "you have to stop cursing like a sailor, Deb. I don't want Harrison to be a serial killer but I also don't want him in detention his whole school career for your influential mouth!" They laugh, she hugs him and says she can't do it. He reminds her of all of the people he's killed and how it's progressed because he has now killed innocents and can't go back and it's only a matter of time before he's caught and behind bars. Sobbing over him, she says "I love you Dex" and he says he loves her too and she plunges the knife in...fade to black. But, you know, they didn't ask me! HA!
It's premiere week! My DVR is going to break by week's end! Last night was The Voice and I think we recorded HIMYM (even though we're not regular watchers but wanted to see how they intro'd the supposed mother. We think she's a plant.) We also recorded Sleepy Hollow. WOW, talk about a great show! I would much rather see scripted TV than "reality TV" so I'm glad to see some good shows in that genre making a comeback. I'm SOOOO excited for American Horror Story!! Kathy Bates anyone? Yes please!
