Also he's shown numerous times he can choke-hold someone to sleep almost instantly. It was just a shoddy plot device to justify Harrison shooting him.
Yep. It was what annoyed me most about the ending. It's one thing putting Dexter in a position where he feel like he has to make the choice to kill the officer and for that to prompt Harrisson to turn on him, it's another for them to randomly have Dexter kill the officer just so Harrison can turn on him. It was totally context-less, they could have had Dexter randomly kill anyone at any point for the same outcome.

And they just shoehorned in a random scene where the coach buys him burgers to show the deep connection they have.

Was genuinely shocked that he actually did that, not just imagining it in his head like he's done before. When it became obvious that he did actually do that I was like WTF :lol:

I totally expected it to snap back to reality and he think his way out of the situation but :lol:

Also, it gets worse. What a shit explaination.


Clyde confirms it on the podcast finale, dexter accidentally breaks his neck when he ducked to dodge the bullet, something about the way he had him in that chokehold…

I hated how they made a point of showing Logan doing things by the book and treating him very cautiously when giving him food but hey, there's 20 minutes left and we need a plot device to progress things to I'll hand him something directly this time and let him kill me...

Indeed. If they were going for that set up then they really should have created a stronger bond between the cop (what's his name anyway ?) and Harrison. Dexter's kid had more connection with the show's main villain tbh :lol:
edit: a friend of mine told me the writers found a way to kill the only black character in the most stupid way too.

really bummed they killed him off.

I enjoyed this series immensely. Thought the father/son dynamic gave the show a really fresh feeling that they could have ran with.

I guess he didn’t want to do it anymore, or they only thought it would be good for 1 series?

I really didn’t expect it to happen like that.

To be fair. There’s really no way you could end this and be satisfying or perfect. Especially if it’s only the last episode they start gaining on him. I liked the ending, but It was rushed.

Didn't mind the end in general re. Dexter but so many plot holes and stuff that just made no sense in later episodes it spoilt an enjoyable season a bit.

I was just going to say this. It was out of character for Logan to even break protocol.

To be fair the annoyance for me was he got shot in the leg and was limping through the woods.

Then suddenly his leg was fine and walking around like normal :D but hey we can let those slide I guess.
