Good stuff. I was all ready for Debra to be killed off because Dexter couldn’t save her at the last moment. I’ve been expecting that plot development since the middle of the season, because it’s so predictable and so cliche. I was ready to be p*ssed off at the inane knee-jerk sexism of it all. But then they surprised me by having him save her, and threw an actual real surprise at me–the brother. I don’t know if I buy the same trauma causing two kids to become serial killers, but it made the ending more heartfelt.
Two latex-gloved thumbs up!
