Dexter dating 2016
At one point during the panel, the moderator prompted the cast to play "Kiss, Marry, Kill" — an idea that Carpenter did not take well to.
If the central idea from the pilot on was: Here’s a guy who thinks of himself as a monster and yet yearns to be human… I’m hoping that in addition to it making sense for Dexter’s specific journey, it is an analysis or a look at how hard it is to be a human being. Dexter [in the finale] is as close to being a human being as possible – he’s within a plane ride of achieving his happiness — but he hesitates that one moment.We’ve seen him on this journey – he started off as faking it but then became real somewhere along the line – and we’ve seen year-to-year what this journey has cost him. If he had listened to the Dark Passenger and stuck to the Code, he would never have left Saxon, he wouldn’t have thought that he didn’t need to kill, that he’s got a stronger pull. TVLINE Is the takeaway meant to be that he’s no longer killing, but rather just living his life in solitude? Anything that was a part of his life that gave it meaning is gone. And Deb, who is the closest to him of anyone, [suffers].Deb, who was his touchstone and soulmate, died — and this was the only fitting punishment. When he looks into the camera in the end [of the finale], the rest is silence; there’s not even a voiceover there anymore. Committing suicide is too easy; that’s letting himself off the hook. He’s banished himself as far away from Miami and anyone he’s loved. TVLINE Were there any other possible scenarios in which Dexter “kills” Deb, other than him taking her off life support? In a completely fully-aware [moment] of love, at his most human, he does something that he’s had to do a million times: to take someone’s life. There is a certain bravery because she’s living as a vegetable – I hope that if that ever happens to me I have a brother who loves me enough to take me off life support. We felt that it would be really cheating not to have an ending that was specific to what we wanted to say… I’m sure there will be a great bit of discussion and controversy about it, but for those of us who have been involved with the show from the very beginning, it feels — and it felt — right.It was the feeling when you read a great book, and you read the last page, and there's something hovering in the air. It was beyond anything we could probably articulate then — or now, apparently." Added his ex: "Am I satisfied with how it ended? What goes around comes around, especially for Ramona Singer‘s ex-husband.
