^ I know what you mean about repeating the Doakes situation. But since Dexter didn't kill Doakes I'm thinking it would be ok with Dexter killing Quinn or maybe Stan Liddy.
I want Dexter to stop being so wrapped up with Lumen and get a clue that Quinn and Liddy are checking up on him.

Debra has the best clothes. Pants and shirts look flawless on her. And yay about the long hair back.

Quinn is an enigma....but seriously what´s going on with his hair....he has a rug? or plugs?

And what´s with the Nanny? She has something going on too....She has a creepy side lurking....

So now that the 5th season is over, what do you think about it ?

I was disappointed by the main story with Lumen and the barrel girls. I hoped there would be something more substancial about Jonny Lee Miller character.

Finally, nothing happened with the creepy nanny.

The "Santa Muerte" plot was weird. We finally didn't found out what it was really about. I don't even remember if the two guys were shot.

And Debra is still more and more miserable each season.
Too bad, I love her and love the way she dresses too. I think her character and the actress is really underrated. I read lots of harsh words about her on the Internet but I think she's fab. Very skinny but fab nonetheless

I think it was a great season but totally disappointed by the ending. Dexter usually has GREAT finales but that was so...eh.

And yeah, Deb kills in her jeans and shirts.

What a dissapointing finale. This season began so well but after episode 7 or 8 it became so...I don´t know. The main characters were washed out. After last season, this was really a turn down. The last minutes of the finale.....argh so un-dexter

I don't know, I really felt it emotionally for Dexter in those last minutes of the finale. He finally thought he found a true partner, and she leaves him after she had no more use for him. He keeps getting these glimpses of potential "human-ness" and acceptance, but then it's always taken from him and he goes back to thinking of himself as a monster. He's been used all his life...

It's insane how this show makes me empathize and feel for a serial killer...

Yup!
Sometimes I surprise myself "rooting" for Dexter and feeling sorry for him when he must stay with his family (Rita, the kids) and he cannot go out and kill people.

Also I hated Doakes for chasing him...and then I thought....Duh he´s a criminal and Doakes is a policeman!!!

Dexter takes us to follow his sick logic....

This season was not my favorite, but the writing in this show is so good.
Sometimes I think any episode of Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, In Treatment, House, Weeds can give MANY hollywoods big feature films a run for their money. It´s so rare to see great scripts and great acting in movies, and some TV shows have gotten so good and "meaty", compared to the watered down plots in so many movies...

Couldn't agree more! Sure the last season of Dexter was a little lackluster (I mean how can you top the season 4 finale!!!) But Dexter season 5 is a hell of lot better than the typically structured blockbusters Hollywood has been pumping out. I'd watch any tv show on Showtime or HBO than sit through another Jennifer Aniston movie snoozefest

It was my favorite season so far.
And the ending.. I partly disagree with you guys. The love-line was fantastic, for the first time I really believe in Dexter's feelings. The rest of it (Debra, Quinn, kids) was really fuzzy.
Looking forward to season 6!

P.S. I'm in love with the OST (specially slow guitar theme that was playing in the end).

Just finished season 5 a little late I know but I just got my computer back after 2 months. I liked the ending I wanted Deb to find Dexter and know it was him. I think that could have been done better. I don't know why I want him to be caught but not punished for he what he does. I like that the kids are playing into the end of the season I want them to focus more in season 6.

^In the books, Deb finds out about Dexter and then she helps him.
I think the show is slowly headed in that direction.
