'Dexter' series finale death theory isn't 'necessarily invalid': Wait, what?

Actor Michael C. Hall participated in a Reddit AMA (Dec. 3) where he spilled on all things "Dexter," and a particular finale theory from a fan sparked an unusual response."In the last few minutes of the final episode, the hurricane destroys your Slice of Life boat, and it is assumed that you died," MasterChief3624 says. "But then we see you as a lumberjack in the middle of nowhere ... But in your opinion, do you think Dexter is dead?" He then shares his theory on the final scene of the series which features Dexter in a new line of work could be his purgatory and he actually died in the hurricane that day.The idea that the serial killer would be forced to do the same thing over and over again is an interesting thought. Even more intriguing is that Hall doesn't totally dismiss it. "I'm reluctant to answer that definitively," Hall starts.

Dexter Producer: Showtime Wouldn’t Let Us Kill Dexter

The Dexter series finale enraged many fans for many reasons; chief among them was the fact that Dexter lived — and became a logger? — despite having driven his boat into a hurricane. "How about that finale?" said Dexter producer John Goldwyn at the NYFF premiere of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty this weekend, when we asked how the writers decided on that ending. "They won't let us kill him," he told us. "Showtime was very clear about that. When we told them the arc for the last season, they just said, 'Just to be clear, he's going to live.' There were a lot of endings discussed because it was a very interesting problem to solve, to bring it to a close. People have a relationship with Dexter , even if it doesn't have the size and the ferocity of the fan base for Breaking Bad . But it has a very core loyal following." Yes, and a mostly disappointed one.   Read More....   //www.vulture.com/2013/10/dexter-writers-werent-allowed-to-kill-dexter.html

A 'Dexter' spinoff about Masuka and other ideas - what's your favorite?

"Dexter" came to an end Sunday night (Sept. 22) with an appropriately sad, dark ending. Is there any room for a spinoff? Spoiler alert -- this article will talk about the series finale, so don't keep reading if you haven't watched it yet. In the run-up for the final episode, the "Dexter" cast and creators were asked about possible spinoffs and some of them, now that we've seen how the show ends, are obviously not going to come to fruition. There were mentions made of a Deb-centered spinoff, or a Deb-and-Quinn spinoff. But now that Deb has met her untimely end and is floating dreamily in her white sheet out off the coast of Florida, we don't think those are very feasible anymore. Obviously, the cast or creators pitching those ideas didn't want to give anything away.Likewise, Yvonne Strahovski pitched to The Hollywood Reporter that Hannah McKay could have a spinoff where she starts her... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/a-dexter-spinoff-about-masuka-and-other-ideas---whats-your-favorite.html

'Dexter's' Jennifer Carpenter Talks Deb's Final Journey, Justice for Dex

"I'm picturing an older model television where you have to get up to turn the TV off and then it slips into that tiny little dot until it's all gone -- that's what I feel like is happening to me," the actress tells THR.            //feedproxy.google.com/~r/thr/television/~3/ujifAoZJ2_4/story01.htm

'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'... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/dexter-series-finale-the-cast-reflects-on-the-past-8-seasons-picks-their-favorite-moments-and-pitche.html

'Dexter' Season 8 final episodes clips: Watch Dexter confront the Brain Surgeon

"Dexter" is almost done -- two more episodes. And above, Dexter voiceovers that there's two days left in Miami to find Saxon. But it's a race against time as a hurricane descends on the city and perhaps grounds Dexter, Hannah and Harrison from leaving for Argentina.Below, Dexter has to break the bad news to Debra about Dr. Vogel. She's nearly as devastated as he is, but she tells him that if she finds Saxon first, she won't be just handing him over to Dexter. That's our Deb.Finally, when Dexter confronts Oliver, Saxon proposes they both just go their separate ways. We'd like to think Dexter is not dumb enough to trust anything Saxon says. The final two episodes of "Dexter" air Sunday, Sept. 15 and Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/dexter-season-8-final-episodes-clips-watch-dexter-confront-the-brain-surgeon.html

'Dexter' series finale: 'It was a bittersweet going-away party,' says star Michael C. Hall

The "Dexter" cast and executive producers sat down for a Paley Center panel Thursday night (Sept. 12) to talk about the show's history and tease just a little bit of what's coming in the series finale on Sept. 22.Star Michael C. Hall says filming the series finale was very satisfying. "I was excited and I was gratified that at the end of eight years, I felt that we were still making something, you know?" says Hall. "96 episodes in, I felt like we were all called upon to really invest ourselves and bring it home. It was exciting to read the script and, I don't know, there were so many lasts. Different people on different days had their final scene. It was a bittersweet going-away party, perpetual going-away party."When we shot the final-final scene, it was -- you know the feeling when you read a really great book and the last page and something's hovering... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/dexter-series-finale-it-was-a-bittersweet-going-away-party-says-star-michael-c-hall.html
