    I have seen the finale now. I can see where people would say this is rushed and it COULD have been stretched out by like, 3 episodes for the finale portion alone. But doing it this way DID make it more high octane and suspenseful. So I can see why it was done this way. This ending felt a lot more appropriate than Season 8. I rather enjoyed this season

    It's funny how Angela spent 25 years on the missing persons case, but only took a week or so to solve the Bay Harbor Butcher case. Yes, the same case that had every law enforcement entity involved from the FBI to state and local authorities.

    Also, it's a shame the writers had to hurry up and make us stop "rooting" for Dexter with the Officer Logan death. I get it, Dexter became unhinged and lost his way, but why not show a build up to that over a couple episodes?

    It would have been nice to see Doakes get vindicated when everyone learns Dexter was the BHB.

    I just binged the entire season and finished it today. It was a marked improvement over some of the past seasons, particularly the latter half and was my second most preferred way for the series to properly end.

    There were a few issues definitely, like the pacing of the last episode but overall it was good. I think it could have been better but there really were only two ways to end the series and they chose this one, which went a long way to redeem that awful lumberjack finale.

    Although I am somewhat disappointed that this is a definitive ending to Dexter, considering it really brought him back from that horrible season 8, I was satisfied with the conclusion.

    I totally agree on the rush to kill him in the last 30 minutes reduced the effect. Killing Logan was Dexter's most unredeeming murder and it immediately felt wrong to kill off such a good guy but with that it put an end to Dexter's run. Harrison would not let that go unpunished.

    Batista and Dexter not getting to have one final meeting was another major disappointment. I don't know how COVID affected the season but it feels like that might have originally been the intent. The set up there was just too good to pass up and yet they passed it.

    Also agree that an epilogue would have done wonders for Dexter's legacy.
