True story - right after his season ended I literally ran into him at a restaurant and my first reaction was recoiling and just thinking “Trinity”.

One of the best things about Dexter wasn't even in the show. One of the late night shows had Julie Benz on before the season five premiere, doing promo for the new season describing how it was about a hard working forensics agent who now had to deal with raising kids alone after his wifes murder. They played it entirely in character though with her not knowing anything about him being a serial killer until the host revealed it to her.

I don't recognize your username, but goddamn, do I appreciate the hell out of you PM-ing me about this thread. I saw the news today and thought 'I wonder if anyone on SA has started a thread yet'.

I am flattered that I mattered!

Anyway, my two favourite things to come out of Dexter:

"Okay Jerusalem you can have one wish come true."
"Oh boy! I want that show about the serial killer who is hiding in plain sight among the police to come back!"
Monkey Paw curls, Hannibal remains off the air

More on-topic though, the 1st season of Dexter I loved, then it got real bad, then the Trinity season kind of pulled it back to good, then it got so bad I stopped watching, and I heard it got even worse after that.


Kind of bizarre that it would come back, was there really any demand for it?

Per the main couch thread this will be done by the old showrunner aka the guy who thought Dexter was a cool anti-hero. This should be a glorious failure. I still hope at least part of it is super lumberjack adventuretime- I need the opening credits over eating flapjacks, cutting wood and beautiful British Columbia

I don't know... It all depends on whether or not Dexter's lizard brain can handle it.

He IS a psychopath, remember? I feel like someone might have mentioned that once or twice in the last season....

I can't draw, didn't edit video back then, and wasn't that great at Photoshop, but I remember my one contribution was making the S6 thread title, which was something like... "Season 6 is Olmos here; Mos Def better than S5. Colin Hanks!"

Also, does anyone have the Cheerios gif of Hanks shoving them in his mouth while in Dexter's apartment?

Be the change you want to see in the world, my goon.

Also, you can tell how little people (outside of SA) cared about the dumbness of the show, seeing as though it's currently very difficult to find the BLACK SUV gif anywhere.

Also, who's got that drawing of Dexter in his car with:

- his dad
- Sirko (remember him?!)
- Miguel
- Trinity (I think)
- I don't know, that Jordan Chase guy, Johnny Lee Miller's wet fart of a character
- Maybe Olmos or Mos Def's characters

I need this in my life. Once in a while, I'll hear of people who personally archive media from threads, and holy poo poo, I should have been one of those people for these threads.

I skimmed the season 6 thread and couldn't find it. There's a lot of dead images in there, unfortunately.

Though I was reminded that in season 6 Scott Buck decided Deb wants to gently caress her brother. Great show.

No way... That was the ultimately forgettable bad guy from season 8, right? Wasn't that drawing from way earlier?

Edit: I also remember at one point in season 8, Dexter's monologuing about that White Bread Killer (I don't remember who he is, the guy in the gif). He says something like "He'll be hard to track, he'll likely remain in the shadows."

And then the next scene is the dude at a Wendy's or something? Does anyone else remember this?

And there was something about Dexter being outside, totally visible, in the same shot? Oh god, it's all so terrible and it runs together so much.

That's the Brain Surgeon - Oliver Saxon - one of the season 8 antagonists. He's secretly the son of Evelyn Vogel. Evelyn was a psychiatrist specializing in P S Y C H O P A T H S who helped Harry create the code. And yeah, while stalking Saxon, there's a scene where Dexter just sort of half-crouches next to a car in a parking lot like ten feet away from Saxon, having some interminable conversation with Harry in front of God and everybody

Other prolonged subplots of season 8:

Quinn studies for a test.

Jamie and Quinn start dating, until she gets mad that Quinn spends time with Deb at work.

El Sapo

E: oh yeah and lem from the shield was an inept US Marshal in the classic Dexter style pursuing Dexter's girlfriend lol

Dexter killing Oliver while in custody with a pencil immediately followed by Dexter, Batista, and I think Masuka reviewing the security footage in which it’s clear that Dexter straight up murders the guy and they al go “..... looked like self defense to me” so Dexter gets to once again walk away from any consequence was pretty loving great in how cowardly this show was at having Dex face any real repercussions.
