Dexter season 7

post #1 of 313
Thread Starter 

Yeah, yeah, season 6 was a dud...

 

But season 7 has Titus Pullo!

Stevenson will be playing an eastern european crime thug looking for whoever killed one of his allies... hmmm, I wonder who that could be?

post #2 of 313

I didn't think season 6 was a dud.  Wasn't the best season,sure, but it was pretty fun for the most part.

 

Looking forward to seeing more of Deb "I can't believe I fell in love with my brother, AND another serial killer!" angst.  lol.

 

They just need Angel to bring back more of La Passione.  Oh, and more Masuka.  You can never get enough Masuka.

Yeah, it may have fallen from must-see to guilty pleasure status but Hall is still too good for me to give up on. Maybe now that the 24 crew is gone it will get better.

I submit that if a primary subplot makes you "lol", then it's probably terrible.

 

I thought Season 6 stunk, with even Hall seeming bored. I didn't even get a 'fun' campy vibe like I had in years past. I'll probably check out season 7 eventually, but this show needed to end years ago.

post #5 of 313

Are they going to just drop the whole Intern subplot from last season as well?  I get the feeling this show ends with Deb being the Commissioner Gordon to Dexter's Batman...only they are in love.  Christ, this show.

post #6 of 313

I used to love Dexter.  I think Season 4 is the best all-around run the show's had, and 5 was sort of the perfect follow-up to it.  But 6... 6 was so bad that I'm giving 7 exactly one episode to get its act together.  Anything as bad as the bulk of S6 and I'm out.

post #7 of 313

I have seen rumors of them recasting Deb.  Anyone else hear anything like this?

Thats the thing. I never exactly looked at Dexter as the Sopranos, more like Sons of Anarchy. It's a ton of fun with moments of greatness yet never quite reaching it. The show was never going to be American Psycho and im ok with that. However I will say last season did not work for me. Here is hoping that since they got 2 years left they will write toward their finish. I believe they even said that in an interview.

And now Yvonne Strahovski has been added to the season 7 cast.

(pleasebenakedpleasebenakedpleasebenaked)

 

Seriously though, these casting stories are awesome enough to almost make me forget season 6!

post #10 of 313

Better get something out of those interns.

Wait what?

post #14 of 313

Where did that come from? She announced he was cured April 2010, they divorced December 2010 and the filing said they'd been separated since August 2010.

 

Is this just a 2+2=5 thing?

post #15 of 313

Pretty much, yes.

That's cool. It relieves me from the responsibility of being the optimist going into the new season!

Or to do that and then spam the boards or something.

 

Anyway I am actually looking forward to this season. I can't make any excuses for the last season really, it was a ball drop. However for me it was the only true bad season the show has had. Im hoping with the new revelation and an end date in mind we might actually go somewhere.

What happened in the final scene of last season doesn't necessarily mean that Debra knows Dexter's secret now. I mean, yeah sure she saw her brother kill a seemingly helpless man, but Dexter could just say that in the darkness of the abandoned church he mistook Travis for a suspicious looking black guy, and under Florida's Stand Your Ground law was actually well within his rights to strap the guy to a table and plunge a knife into his chest. Deb will completely understand that it was all just a big misunderstanding, and by episode one of the next season things will be back to normal

While I applaud getting a Zimmerman dig in, I wish you hadn't done it in my pretty Dexter thread.

 

However you are correct I doubt that right away she will get that he is the bay harbor butcher. I imagine he will come up with something to justify that killing but at least it's something. This show really only has 2 seasons left, with this knowledge im hoping they will start writing towards their end rather than season to season which I think they have been hinting at in interviews.

post #25 of 313

Seasons 5 and 6 should have had their main ideas tied into one season.

post #26 of 313

So did anyone watch the released clip?

 

"Put it together Deb! Come on girl you're a decorated homicide Detective! WHY WAS HE CARRYING SHEETS OF PLASTIC AROUND? WHY DID HE BRING A KNIFE? WHY IS HE WEARING AN APRON?"

eah I figured thats how it would go. Here is hoping they won't keep that up long.

post #28 of 313

The new trailer seems to cast things in a different light.  In spite of myself, I'm actually looking forward to the new season - planning to watch at least the first couple episodes.  My soul may be doomed...

post #29 of 313

Wow, just watched the clip. She still can't figure it out?!?!?!?

 

Sad to see the show just run out of ideas.

She is a detective that believed the Ice Truck Killer killed himself by binding himself to his contraption, slitting his throat and raising the machine using a lever that was on the other side of the room.

Sepinwall and Feinberg were kind of raving about the first three episodes of this season at their podcast. And they HATED season 6. Which means that I, who found good things even in the last season, will probably piss my pants from joy.

God I hope that is true. I REALLY want this show to finish strong. Im hoping that now that they are writing towards their end rather than treading they can actually take Dexter somewhere. It's pretty much this season and then one after folks. 

post #36 of 313

Fingers crossed that FINALLY being able to move the main plot forward has reinvigorated the writers.

I love you for making me aware of this. 

 

I've had qualms with various seasons, but I genuinely enjoyed the show up until last year.  I'll be ecstatic if it can recover from last year's collapse.

I just listened to that excerpt over on Netflix. Wow! I hated all of last season, so this is exciting to hear.

And here's Sepinwall's article about Dexter.

Debra has developed something like 100 points to her IQ. I'm suddenly excited about this show from the premiere and the scenes previewed.

post #41 of 313

Oh my god. What a great episode.The end just made me go "oh holy hell this is going to be good!"

Yeah, just when you thought they were going to string out the "Deb figuring it out" transition for an entire season, they drop the hammer. Nicely played.

 

I did find myself wondering at what point in the series Dexter stopped killing guys who had gotten off or slipped through the cracks, and started hiding evidence and going after guys who could easily be convicted. 

 

More importantly though: it's ok to like Dexter again! smile.gif

I thought the same.

 

Had a problem with what i thought to be a fake beginning with Dexter fleeing to the airport - finding out later that it was a real scene that happened later helped. Still a bit tacky...

 

Looks like they are already doing a better job than with season 5. FYI: Seasons 1 and 2 are my favourites.

post #44 of 313

That was easily the best episode of Dexter since the Season 4 finale, which had Lithgow and Rita's death, and...okay, that's all I remember. Maybe the season 2 finale then.

 

It was so nice to see Deb actually use her brain like the great cop she's supposed to be. However, the most surprising thing may be that LaGuerta actually has a role in which she's doing things that are interesting and relevant to the main story. IT'S A MIRACLE!

post #45 of 313

Holy Fuckenstein!

 

That was fucking great! I do believe that this is one of the top 5 Dexter episodes ever. The end had me jump off my chair. It also caused this week to become the longest one in recorded history.

post #46 of 313

I didn't love it -- the stuff involving Victor from Dollhouse was pretty lame -- but I'm glad Deb was played off as smart.  It's probably the best season opener other than 5's My Bad.

God that annoyed me. Take out that whole airport sequence and that was a brilliant episode (I've been to Miami airport, I cannot see myself strolling onto a plane with four syringes in my bag).

 

That ending was phenomenal though. Don't care about the Ukrainians, don't care about Laguerta or weird intern guy. I just want Dex and Debra playing Cat and mouse for the remainder.

post #48 of 313

The Ukranian and Intern Guy are the usual so-so Dexter subplots, although I think the intern seemed more interesting here that at any point last season.

 

I disagree about Laguerta, though, because it seems she will become part of the primary storyline in a way that could be suspenseful and dramatic. I'm probably overrating it a bit because she's SUCH a useless character, but I'll take that over her and Angel bickering about their relationship any day of the week.

He said he had a prescription. I'm pretty sure they don't tell diabetics to just die on the flight.

The Ukranian guy is leading to Ray Fucking Stevenson coming after Dexter, so that's aces in my book.

 

The intern will hopefully be dealt with soon. He's a tie to the worst and needs to go.

 

Laguerta's ties to Doakes are probably her most interesting character traits. The last time she didn't suck was when she had to deal with everyone believing Doakes was the Bay Harbor Butcher.

 

Probably the best thing about the premiere is how it fixed so many of the show's narrative problems. Dicey Laguerta story? Gone. Cipher new super-detective? Excised. Interminable Deb missing what Dexter is? Over. Good cause for optimism.

Don't diabetics use these things that look like thick plastic pens?
