    Even critics who have spent the season defending Dexter, are starting to give up and agree that Dexter has totally lost its way. Showtime will have to decide what to do about Dexter’s final season. Retool or have most of the people who loved the show for so long, spend the last season trashing it.

    Did you read the part where it said this is the highest rated season of Dexter ever? Don’t know why you think Showtime has some big decision to make. Personally, I think Season 6 was a dud, but this season is much better.

  • Sonny

    I agree David. I think last season of Dexter was awful but the show has bounced back this year.
