I liked the show. It definitely wasnt the greatest show ever, which some people cannot seem to accept, but i thought it was good. Another thing - maybe people don’t know this, but the fact is that the head honcho at Showtime specifically said he wants to keep the dexter franchise going. Even if it’s unlikely the show will continue in any form, the writers couldnt kill deb and dex, cuz then that completely kills off the idea of any sort of continuation (being another season or a spinoff). I read that Nevins (head at Showtime) was very involved in the ending, and i doubt he wouldve approved an ending that completely squashed his idea of a continuation. Just some food for thought.
