    I think the final closure was really bad… in all; it should have been Dexter who should have died and Debra Morgan should have reached an understanding with Hannah.
    Harrison should have gone, as he did with Hannah. I think it ended the way it did cuz they might want to do a follow-up mini-series, movie…etc Was a real dumb move from my view.

    I think the beginning story line for the final season is a great lead to a next season. Debra’s breakdown is change in character is a great way to revamp the series. They should continue doing a ninth season. I also think Quinn and Deb Ok how about the “basics” clean store, clean stockroom, hallway clear and clean, get someone in tonite to get those 100 percent pls be back together, he should be her savior.
