'Dexter' series finale: The cast reflects on the past 8 seasons, picks their favorite moments, and pitches possible spinoff ideas

We've spent eight seasons riding along with Dexter's Dark Passenger, and come this Sunday (Sept. 22), we will have to say our final goodbyes as the "Dexter" series finale airs at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime. We have watched Dexter transform from a true psychopathic murderer into a semi-functioning, real human being with emotions via his connections with his family and loved ones --though he still can't shake that pesky need to kill. But when the series first aired eight years ago, none of the stars ever imagined the show would continue on for this long and come this far."I thought that if we got the tone right it would develop some sort of cult following, but not as big of a cult as it's become," series star Michael C. Hall tells Zap2it. "I had just done a series that was very successful that went on for five seasons and I couldn't imagine 'Dexter'... //

Dexter: Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter Look Back on 8 Seasons of Kills and Thrills

After eight seasons, over 100 kills and more blood than we can imagine, Dexter will sign off for good on Sunday. From the beginning, Dexter Morgan ( Michael C. Hall ) was a serial killer incapable of having emotions or a true human connection. But over the course of eight seasons, he's faced love, loss, heartache and even friendship with his foul-mouthed sister Deb ( Jennifer Carpenter ), proving that he may have the capacity for feelings. Will that be Dexter's downfall in the series finale? We'll find out Sunday (9/8c, Showtime). Before then, however, Hall and Carpenter look back at eight seasons of kills and thrills... //

Dexter: How Will It End?

Warning: Includes major spoilers and predictions if you're not caught up on season 8 of Dexter The end is near. Dexter's final episode is less than a week away and the possible ending scenarios are  being narrowed down. With the Brain Surgeon's identity figured out and Oliver Saxon on the run, Deb's  life hanging in the balance and Dex's relationship and escape with Hannah looking up, what will happen  to end the series?  At this point in the season, there are only so many ways Dexter could end. What could still happen to  bring the series to its final episode? Will Dexter go to jail, escape or end up six feet under?  If Dexter had his way, he'd escape to Argentina with both Hannah and Harrison in tow, with Deb living  safely in Miami and the Brain Surgeon taken care of. But things never turn out how we want, right? Or  will things actually end happily ever after for Dex? So many questions, so few answers. We can only  hope the writers will give us a satisfying finale episode to end the long-running series.    Dexter Gets Caught It's either really impressive or really surprising that Dexter has lasted this long without being caught.  He's a pro at pulling a veil over the eyes of everyone at Miami Metro (minus Deb, of course). He's been  working at Miami Metro through eight seasons now, and no one but Doakes and LaGuerta ever had any  inkling of who Dexter really is, and we know how things turned out for both of them. With only one final episode left in the Showtime hit, I'm convinced we won't see Dexter in handcuffs.  The season has been dragging slowly on, and Dexter being caught and sent to jail won't really end the  show with the biggest bang.  But if Dexter were to go to jail, he'd be put away for a long, long time. Or, more than likely, Dexter  would be subjected to the death penalty – with is still a possible (and highly probable) sentence under  Florida state law – for all of his crimes. With well over 100 counts of premeditated first-degree murder,  there's simply no way Dexter would not be found guilty if he ever entered a court room.   Dexter Could Actually Get Away with Hannah The plan for the serial-killing lovers is still to finish off Oliver Saxon, grab Harrison and jet set off to  Argentina to live happily ever after. With Saxon on the run again and Deb shot, could that still happen?  The possible escape and the "will they, won't they" situation is the biggest plot point of the season  currently, even more so than if Dexter will get Saxon or not.  A clean break from Miami and a safe escape would give Dexter the most blissful end – but does Dexter  really deserve a happy ending? And who's to say that everyone will even make it to the end of the final  episode? And this takes us to another (more likely?) possibility…   Deb or Hannah Won't Make It Out Alive Or both? Nothing would crush Dexter more than having Deb or Hannah die at his expense. (Let's  pretend Harrison doesn't exist in this scenario, because the writers would have to be so cruel to let  anything happen to him.) Nothing would tear Dexter up as much as losing one of these two. Though Dexter is in love with Hannah, Deb is the one person he's consistently cared about throughout  the series. In one of the most heartbreaking moments from this season, Dex runs into Deb in a grocery  store, and you can see the hurt on his face when Deb tells him, "I shot the wrong person in that trailer." And, even more heartbreaking is how the second-to-last episode ended. Deb was shot by Saxon and we  last saw her on the floor calling in her own shooting. Previews of the finale showing Deb and Dexter in  an ambulance together… Will Deb make it? The previews also show him in the airport, closer to escaping  Miami. With him questioning leaving Deb behind, could it be that she doesn't make it, making it easier  for Dex to attempt to leave Florida for good?  If something happened to either of these two (and it's possible that Deb won't survive), Dexter would  completely lose it… which could also lead to another possibility.   Dexter, Our Favorite Anti-Hero, Could Die Losing Dexter could be a bittersweet ending to the series. On one hand, no one wants their favorite  character to die, but it would be a true and fitting end. If something happened to someone Dexter truly  cares about, he'd be a mess. There would be no return from the complete agony and distress Dex would  feel, and he'd likely try to avenge the loss of the people he cares about – maybe with dire results for  Dexter. I could easily see him being consumed with emotion and making big mistakes in these final  episodes. But – we'll have to wait and see! How would you like Dexter to end? What do you think will actually happen to give us the most satisfying  end? It's really down to the wire now but many good or bad things could still happen to take us to the  series finale. Brace yourself and get ready!   By:  Kevin Fischer /  @ KevinTFischer

'Dexter' Season 8 episode 11: Will Deb survive the series finale?

We've been wrestling all season with how we feel about the way "Dexter" has gone the last two seasons of the show. Now there's only one episode left and we wonder if the show is going to take a sharp left turn.Both in Season 7 and Season 8, Dexter has started to find some real happiness and stability. It's been nice to watch the transition from Rita, a stable, loving woman who could never know what Dexter really is; to Lumen, who knew what Dexter really was but was not stable and when she went back to being stable, would not be able to be with Dexter; to Hannah, who is a stable, loving woman who knows all of Dexter's parts and loves him, not even in spite of the dark passenger but because of it. So, we've really been looking forward to our favorite serial killer getting his happily ever after. But we have... //
