They can get Hannah back but I don't see the point. But they could get back Batista, Masuka, and Quinn. They could definitely have Ghost Harry, and they could even throw in Ghost Doakes or Ghost Deb if they wanted.

What could work as an actual good show is him ending up getting caught and the ghosts of his past tormenting him. I don't think that's what we'll get.

I never thought my first stickied thread would be about Dexter of all things.

Surprise Motherfucker indeed.

Also Iím rooting for a redo where Doakes is back. Iím still bitter at how they treated that character. Along with the rest.

I canít wait to watch it again!

Just reboot it and have it be a one off since itís already being described as a limited run. But still work in the salad and treadmill. Bonus points if you can get two PAs in the background with scripts that somehow make it into the final cut.

It would be interesting to see how Dexter adapts to weather outside of Florida and has some murder shed he built from trees he cut down.

But then he wakes up and we are back to when it was good.

Honestly any of Deb's overly long, overly inventive curses would be a p good candidate.

Chicky Hines is def one of the first things I think of when I think of TVIV and Dexter tho

loving Deb had some hilarious lines... a bloody shame it got so awkward with her later. The romance angle just seemed to put a bullet into her and afterwards she was either not fun awkward or traumatized. This is going to sound sad since I was there and all... but what was the story behind Chucky Hines? I've done drugs since then. Repeatedly.

So glad to see other people liking Doakes. I swear I was the only one back in the day. Also Mos Def does a good job in this. Always thought he was a better actor than people gave him credit for.

If you like Doakes, check out Oz; he plays Moses Deyell, a death row inmate.

Punches through a cement wall and kills a guy

Surprise motherfucker indeed

EDIT: Here ya go:

The setup is Mark (the white racist guy) was saying a bunch of poo poo to him earlier, so Moses decided to start digging that hole towards him.

the books go really off the rails at some point and the plot of one of them reveals that the dark passenger is literally a demon offspring of Moloch who is possessing dexter and compels him to kill. when it leaves one day, dexter turns into a total wuss.

would be cool if they went that route, the bay harbor butcher just being some random schmuck dexter's dark passenger moved on to.

I mean the general public still thinks Doakes was the Bay Harbour Butcher. That seems pretty "wrong" to me.
