Sigh. The “Dexter” ending was truly unworthy of the character. The original creator of the show said (in an interview I read somewhere) that he wanted to have Dexter caught and found guilty…and when he’s strapped to an execution table about to receive a lethal injection, he sees all his victims from over the years there in the room confronting him. GAWD that would have been so much better!
At the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday (Jan. 16), Entertainment President David Nevins supported the storyline, saying, “I think the fundamental design of where they ended ‘Dexter’ was really well conceived. He had to sacrifice the one person who was closest to him in the world and he had to leave.”
Nevins also addressed the rumors about Showtime preventing producers from killing off Dexter, claiming that it was never discussed and that “no one even brought up the idea.”
