    I feel kind of empty and disappointed. I wanted Dex to win and have a good life with Hanna and Harrison.

    Hopefully, he is just grieving the loss of Debra and will eventually make his way to Argentina.

    Good luck, Dexter!

    I would not have missed this show. I have wondered for quite some time how they were going to wrap everything up. As usual, very creatively. I was surprised, which makes me happy.
