Oh Man, This was the saddest event to happen on the show till date!
When Dexter killed his brother, I felt a pinch of sadness, but killing Rita and the way it was done, broke my heart and I felt so bad for Dexter!
To be honest, I really dislike his sister, whats her name. The way she meddles into everything and does the same stupid mistakes over and over and over again - I cant believe she can be a Cop, someone with a decision making capacity cant be anything. If they had killed her I would have been more than happy.
But with Rita, Dexter felt something - I know she was a bit nagging and stuff, and I wasnt exactly in love with the character, but I liked her because she made Dexter FEEL! S she didnt know what Dexter does or why he is always away. She wanted him to be around , which is a reasonable feeling from a wifes point of view especially with a traumatic past like Rita's.
And now, what about the kids, how will Dexter manage now. He already had issues dealing with kids, but with the loss of their mother, what would the kids do. First they lose their father and now Rita - Damn, that was a very bad move writers - very bad indeed!
I am sure, sometime later during the season, they would bring in another female charater, to fill in Rita's shoes somehow, but she was there from 4 seasons, who can really get to that level, I think no one.....Its sad, way too sad for me!
If any of you guys watch Criminal Minds, when Agent Hotchner lost his Wife, we felt bad a bit really as she was rarely a part of the series, but Rita was a the root character, without her there is always going to be a void.
I hope Dexter, gets to his senses and listens to Harry more often, and becomes ruthless. If only he had killed Trinity in the forest, like Harry insisted, nothing like this would have happened!
This is a tragedy, which I can never level with!
