1793 - Dexter: season seven
The only decent thing about season six was, literally, the final few seconds where Debra walked in on Dexter - changing the fate of the show forever. This season was all about Debra coming to grips with who Dexter is, and also more-or-less becoming his sidekick in a weird way. All that fueled with a bizarre love-triangle with the fantastic Hannah and you've got a pretty solid season - top that with a half-season villain of Isaac Sirko and it's even stronger. A lot of people complained that Isaac was taken out too early - I'd argue that it would have been hard to keep him up and build towards this season's climax. I was actually hoping that Hannah would be the one to take out La Guerta and thereby protecting Dexter and making Debra owe her one - possibly the one way to get her off her back and make it so that Dexter and she could be together - although turning Debra into a killer is a pretty smart move forward for the show. Will she spin out of control? Should be interesting, especially since Hannah is still in play. Could the two of them still have a happy ending? I'm interested to see where the final season will take us since things have (somewhat) been brought back to a status quo. I have to say that I want a final season that sees Dexter, somewhat, on the run - how else can this end on a happy note without him faking his own death?
We shall see in the fall of 2013...
