HOUSTON, August 25, 2013 — With the TV series “Dexter” in the midst of its final season and with only four episodes left, fans are on the edge of their seats guessing how Dexter’s story is going to resolve.

(WARNING: This article may contain spoilers if you have not watched all the episodes to date.)

Some fans feel like this season is taking too long to set up a finale and isn’t exciting enough, although this is consistent with how “Dexter” is formulated. On average, the first eight episodes in every season are spent on character building and formulating a plot, while the last four episodes tend to be very concentrated and serve to resolve the issues earlier.

The final season is proving to be no different.

A great deal has already happened to the characters this season and a few balls, of course, are still up in the air. Dexter has a mother-figure in Dr. Evelyn Vogel, who actually was the one to create the code with Harry, Dexter’s father.

Hannah McKay is back in Dexter’s life and they are more smitten with each other than before (even if she did try to kill his sister, but hey, no couple is perfect).

Deb is truly starting to accept her brother for who he is thanks to Dr. Vogel. She’s even accepting the fact, for now, that Dexter and Hannah are still into each other. Dexter and his new protégé Zach Hamilton appeared to be really bonding until Zach got whacked, apparently by the serial killer dubbed the “Brain Surgeon,” whom we all thought had been killed at the beginning of the season.

Quinn is still investigating Zach Hamilton. And, of course, if he gets anywhere with that, his sleuthing may lead back to Dexter. From last week’s teaser, it seems that Deb’s boss will be gunning for Hannah to pick up the bounty for her as she is a wanted convict and she leads back to Dexter.

We still have to see who the real “Brain Surgeon” is. Could it be Vogel?

The final four episodes promise to deliver what they always have, edge-of-the-seat excitement leading up to, in this case, the ultimate climax of the series.

“Dexter” airs Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET on Showtime.

I am the author of, When Jonathan Cried for Me, a story of struggle and redemption. I was once diagnosed with PTSD and depression because of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a pedophile. I have spent the last four years of my life transforming myself from a broken person, into one with complete inner peace and no signs of those afflictions.

For most of my life, my only dream was to be in the sports entertainment industry, which I accomplished in my twenties by becoming a licensed professional wrestler, promoter and booker. After years in that industry – and many injuries later! – I realized that this was no longer my dream. I ventured into stage acting, stand-up comedy, and promoted bands in the local music scenes.

After years of trying to find my niche in life, I discovered my meaning in life, my purpose; I had an epiphany of what I was supposed to do. I started Innovative Social Dynamics LLC. Through my business I educate, inspire and challenge others to obtain positive transformation through the knowledge of the mind, science, and innovative philosophy. The tool for transformation and personal greatness exists inside of everyone. You can read more about me, my business and my book at
