This Is the Way the World Ends
Dexter season 6 returns to reveal its twelfth, and final entry with this week’s shockingly revelatory season finale “This is the Way the World Ends” as our favorite serial killer faces his final confrontation with Travis Marshall after last week’s explosive “Talk to the Hand,” and Deb stumbles upon a shocking truth about her brother. “This is the Way the World Ends” sure had a lot on its plate to address for one episode, but optimism for the next few seasons don’t quite quell the issues that season 6 created.
Disgusting love spell broken. Hopefully. So we can all rest easy now. Unless we’re Debra, of course. We’re going to have to wait until next year but, man, I can’t even imagine how Deb will take this. Especially since she spends most of her life crying and tearing up at everything. I’m actually glad Laguerta addressed Deb’s crying in this episode because it had gotten way out of hand. Last episode, Deb teared up when she realized Laguerta betrayed Matthews.
This time, the discovered drawing indicates somehow that Travis will kill his next victim on the top of a tall building, so Deb scrambles all of her available officers to Miami’s skyscrapers to await Travis, who is planning to strike during a solar eclipse. In an attempt to create some stakes, the writers contrive a way for little Harrison to be Travis’ chosen sacrifice, which didn’t work because it required the writing to yank the characters every which way to pull it off, and because it didn’t succeed at raising the stakes.
After six seasons of inching Deb closer and closer to the truth about her brother, the show finally puts her at the point of truth, just as Dexter has stabbed Travis. What this means for Dexter, Deb and Miami Metro is absolutely anyone’s guess, but it’s certainly the best scene the show has had since Rita’s death. Michael C. Hall really does some of his best work here, even though I’m not sure how I feel about the last words of the season being “Oh God”. It comes off as just another completely unsubtle way the show has thrown in religion, and that doesn’t sit quite well with me.
