This thread feels like a greatest hits of old Dexter threads. It would be hilarious if the next season was the quality of the first few but relied on the viewer watching the bad seasons.

Quinn just drives up to Dexter hiding behind a wall, staring at the serial killer, says, "I KNOW WHAT YOURE UP TO. WELL, SEE YA" and drives off.

I enjoyed the fan theory that Quinn knew exactly what Dexter was up to but didn't give a poo poo

If they are willing to resurrect Dexter they could resurrect literally anything next. Game of thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Family Matters, etc.

I wonder what the Urkel actors looks like nowadays. Maybe they can do a Dexter and Urkel crossover

They need to bring back the Shield, which ended with Vic Mackey "winning" by being put on a desk job at a professional federal agency* with the implicit understanding that he was too much of a wild card to ever see field service again.

*ICE, lol how times change.

This thread makes Dexter seem a lot more fun than it was. It wasn't even fun to hatewatch. It was boring 95% of the time. Game of Thrones was fun to hate watch, not this.

He also bizarrely did an interview as a David Bowie surrogate around that time

that was because david bowie was dying of cancer and looked like poo poo but it was pretty loving weird

anyways remember that dude who paid off his debts to his bookie by killing other people who owe that bookie money? that sure was loving stupid and makes no sense

Which is why it needs to comeback. The ending is broken if show ICE becomes our ICE where Vic would be management material.

I never thought this was a 'Mackey is in hell now' ending. People in desk jobs can still wield tremendous power and it would not be long before someone high up in ICE would come to him as their guy who gets poo poo done. Only death would stop Vic Mackey, even if sentenced to life in jail he would find a way to run a cell block.

Wasn't it made even weirder because, by the time they did that plot line, Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter were divorced?

Since the entire office either knows or will know that Vic is essentially a criminal/murderer, I can't see this happening.

And yes, I know "ICE" and all, today, he'd fit right in, but in the context of the show, they (ICE) are the good guys who likely look down quite a bit on cop killers.

Vic Mackey is in bureaucratic hell, without a trace of his family.

complete opposite for me, the final season of GoT was boring and had no value

The Shield owns though and i rewatch it often. It has that constant tension as things get worse and worse for the strike team, similar to Breaking Bad and it's what Dexter needed in the later seasons

This is a great place to discuss other shows with interesting endings that leave you wondering what came after. Something good has already come out of this new Dexter thing.

Mackey would have a difficult time at first, several years probably. He may very well punch someone in the face who mentions he's a killer and go straight to jail.

But of he manages to keep to the deal that was made and put in his hours people will transfer away and he could become 'the guy that turned his life around'. Plenty of known and convicted killers have manage to fool people around them into believing they have changed.

At the very least, Clyde Phillips is returning to run this shitshow so we can at least expect Dexter to finally die at the end.





hopefully.


Also, in honour of Dexter coming back I am welcoming any and all submissions for gang tags, because I think the show and impact its threads had on TVIV is quite substantial!!

If anyone else thinks so and has some ideas let's do this poo poo.

Season three had to follow season two, which was perfect. Then season four came and had much higher highs than three.

Three isn't bad or anything, it's just a little boring.

Ok, so now we have to decide on the MOST SA-Dexter 'thing'. Could be Chicky Hines. Could be Salad Cutting.

Could be the treadmill.

Also, I gotta say, I've been in threads before where gang tags are seemingly given away, even at request, and have never got one.

I feel like this is finally my time. I mean, I already have a related custom title, thanks to a previous thread.

Honestly yeah. I liked the thread but the actual show wasn't even entertaining in a stupid way most of the time.

One of the only things I remember enjoying in the later seasons is that time that Dexter spent like 3 episodes fighting a guy who dressed up as a minotaur and chased his victims around a homemade labyrinth
