He just salted b/c his ideal ending for the show was, like, Dexter on the table about to be injected for the death sentence or w/e and then all of his victims would appear before him or some poo poo to be like lol gently caress u nerd as he drifts off into sweet sweet death

And then Scott Buck made him a lumberjack

A Little Known FACT: Burger King's Bacon King is superior to the Baconator.


Dexter is gonna find out there's a lot of hosed up people that are lumberjacks and will have a field day!

Also who is waiting for the big reveal that he didn't actually toss his sister overboard, it was just someone else he had killed. And now she is just a vegetable in the corner of his log cabin house on machines?

Or she's now magically better and also a lumberjack?

I had no idea they decided Deb was crushing on her brother right after their actors got divorced. Is that close to peak Dexter?

It's hard to define what "peak Dexter is" and here's why; is "Peak Dexter...

Absent-minded salad cutting?
Treadmill Harrison?
Seeing a corpse breathing?
Autoerotic mummification?
Thanksgiving dinner with Trinity?
Lumen going back to her home planet?
Thumbs up Ghost Harry?
The minotaur?
Black SUV?
Chickey Hines?
Breaking the news to young kids about their mother's murder while wearing Mickey Mouse ears?
Stalking someone's home and angrily eating their Cheerios?
"Surprise motherfucker"?
"Hello, Dexter Morgan."?
Unnoticed kill (complete with kill room, mind you) carried out successfully in an international airport?
Bringing on a renowned actor, nay, thespian like Edward James Olmos and completely wasting any opportunity to do something interesting?
Throwing your comatose (or dead?) sister into a hurricane, leaving your son with another serial killer, and then faking your death to become a lumberjack?
Unbreakable, even undentable plot armour for seasons?
Having your old boss memorialized as a bench?
A near-incestuous relationship carried out on screen by actors who just divorced?
FINALLY having a character know and understand you, and ACCEPT you, only to have them killed or sent away by next seasons' premiere?

If you were to succinctly visualize all of these as peaks, you'd end up with a starburst.

Edit: goddamn, I've edited this like 6 times, adding stuff in.

I don't know why but my favorite post that burned itself into my brain from the Dexter threads was the one post from BONUS:

"We need to add another grizzled old cop to the show. Hmm the last one was named Lundy so let's name this one Lindy"
-- writers of the hit TV show Dexter

yes I know his name's actually Liddy

We should start a petition to change the name of a Mcguffin to a Chickey Hines, at least when it applies to a character.

Chickey Hines is the Maris Crane of Dexter.

Maybe the secret origin of Hannibal's murder coat was that he escaped Dexter's kill room and made a fashionable suit out of his restraints?

Hannibal: "May I come in?"
Dexter [voiceover]: Why does he always say that? It kind of reminds me of that thing about vampires, how they can't enter a home until they get permission. Could it be that Hannibal is some sort of predator?
