Dexter season 5 finale which was written by Chip Johannessen & Manny Coto and directed by Steve Shill aired last night on Showtime.
Unlike last year’s brutal/disturbing finale where we discovered that Rita was killed by Trinity, this year we had a more therapeutic ending to the season with no bloodshed, OK we had a little blood.
Many of us were expecting Dex to relieve the horror that he went through with Rita – with Jordan finding a way to kill Lumen.
The hit series almost had a perfect ending with a very arrogant Jordan and nosy being killed by Lumen and Dex respectively.
Dexter understanding that Quinn really loves his sister and therefore he messed up the bloodwork so his future brother in law was not imprisoned for Liddy’s murder.
But in a shocking twist Dex’s life came crashing down thanks to Lumen who revealed that after plunging a knife into Jordan’s heart, her dark passenger had left and that she was no longer interested in going around and killing people with Dexter.
The episode ended on a very light/beautiful note – with everyone gathered for Harrison’s birthday party and Dexter looking at all the happy couples around him and blowing out Harrison’s birthday candle for him, wishing for the chance to be human and to understand what it feels like to be love.
Here is the premise of the episode:
In the season finale, Dexter’s situation grows desperate when he discovers that Lumen’s been set up. Despite knowing he’s being baited into a trap, Dexter risks everything to save Lumen. In the Barrel Girls case, Debra lets her personal feelings lead her instincts once she concludes that vigilantes are more than just a theory. Stan Liddy’s body is found in the van, which Dexter had murdered him in the previous episode. Quinn finds himself in a troublesome situation, which only Dexter can help him out of.Lumen finally kills Chase in the end.
Overall it was a pretty good episode where all the storylines were nicely wrapped and merged into one at the Birthday party.
