Deb's death felt very contrived, and I'm not sure I buy Dexter abandoning Harrison and Hannah in the end. But oh well. I'll just look at that last episode as one of an infinite number of potential universes. :) I'm OK with Dexter's transformation from pure sociopath into more of a "human." It's an interesting character arc.

FWIW, my favorite storylines (after the Ice Truck and Doakes/ Lila) were Lumen and Ray Stevenson (whatever his character was called).
I'm hoping they pull a Dallas, the writers have had a break, they rested, i'm sure they can write something better, now give us another season, Dexter wakes up and the entire 8th season ends up being a dream and we get a final series worthy of the show.

Based on the last three seasons, I don't have a lot of hope that they can write something better. That awful 'it is all in his head' twist that you could see from over the horizon in season six was a sure sign that the show's writers were running on empty. Ray Stevenson, and to a lesser extent Yvonne Strahovski were about the only redeeming qualities of those last three seasons. I can't believe I watched them, but I guess I kept hoping the show would turn around.

I'm approaching the end of season two. I was picturing six more great seasons, but coincidentally read last night that the three Scott Buck-run season are much maligned (was reading about Tremors 4 and recognized Buck's name). Is there a point where this show becomes a pain to watch? Is there anything redeeming towards the end?

No spoilers, please.

If I could do it all over again I would bail after season 4 and then just read about how the series ends.

IMHO, Seasons 5-7 weren't too bad, but definitely a dip in quality. I'd say the last few episodes of Season 7 and then all of 8 were pretty god awful.

Is it worth it for Yvonne Strahovski? Loved her on Chuck. If she happened to be as free with her clothing as Lila.... :)

I remember enjoying her character in season 7 but not so much in season 8. My memory is starting to get fuzzy (crazy that it's been 4 years already since it ended) so I can't think of too many light details without giving some of the basic major spoilers. I'd say just go ahead and finish the series and judge for yourself.

I kind of have to do that to learn characters' fates unless it just gets too painful to continue. I was really hoping this was an eight season slam dunk.
