I am still reeling from shock after watching the finale of DEXTER: NEW BLOOD. This episode had me at the edge of my seat the entire time. 

Dexter (Michael C. Hall) was everything you would want from a psychopathic, serial killer, and more. He embodies pure evil, flowing from every pore, yet he can switch on a dime and become totally innocent in his facial expressions. It’s all in the eyes. Just don’t look or believe one word he says. Self-preservation has always been the key to Dexter’s long run. 

Dexter and Harrison (Jack Alcott) are a dream team. They both have this ordinary appeal about them. No one would believe what lurks below. Kudos to the writers for creating such a conclusion to this season. I never saw it coming. The fictional town of Iron Lake will never be the same. 

I wish I could say more, but I fear I would give away too many spoilers. This show has made me look at people differently. I am not sure I can trust strangers today. How will I ever believe people know the true meaning of love and kindness when evil is everywhere?

The final episode of DEXTER: NEW BLOOD is “MUST SEE” TV! It is a quiet horror that haunts me hours after viewing. It is available to stream on SHOWTIME.
