Dexter: Season 4 Finale Preview

Following Sunday’s episode of Dexter, I almost ran to the computer to type up a “Review & Discussion” piece because the final moments were so intense and exciting that John Lithgow and Michael C. Hall have guaranteed themselves an Emmy nomination next year. Forget Luke & Laura, we’ve got Dexter Morgan & The Trinity Killer. With the season finale less than a week away, place your bets because next week brings with it the ultimate serial killer showdown.

While Showtime is being extremely tight-lipped about what to expect in the season finale, I’ve gathered everything I could find regarding the season finale. I even watched an hour-long live chat with Dexter executive producer Clyde Phillips, hosted by a horrible “zoo-crew,” in an attempt to find new information. While Phillips had some extremely interesting tales, the horrible hosts were so annoying that they had me wishing Dexter would pay me a visit and add me to his collection of slides.

What we know is that next week’s episode is entitled, “The Getaway,” and while you can take what you will from that title, the official description is as follows:

As the noose tightens, Arthur warns Dexter to back off. But Dexter will do anything to stop Trinity from eluding him, even if that means putting himself on the wrong side of the law. Rita acknowledges the rocky relationship she and Dexter share, but reaffirms her support. Batista and LaGuerta face the consequences of their actions. Debra unearths a deeply-hidden truth, but not one she expected to find. And ultimately, Dexter and Arthur find themselves on a collision course, leading them to a confrontation that will change their lives forever.

Besides the episode name and description, not much is known about the season finale. You’re not going to find any spoilers for this one. Phillips has said that “there are very few people that know what happens,” but promises that “it will blow the top of your head off” as “it’s the best episode we’ve ever done.”

Usually I’m not one to believe hype from those so close to a show (it’s not like they’re going to say it sucks), but this season of Dexter has been so amazing that I doubt it’s going to go downhill in the last episode.

Still, you’re here for a preview, so I’ll listen to Mr. T, “Stop with the jibba jabba!” and get to the promo clip, along with a sneak peek at a pivotal scene from next week’s episode. (I know the preview images from the videos are identical, but I promise you that they’re different.)

How great was that? Sunday can not come fast enough. As we did with the Criminal Minds 100th episode and the Monk series finale, you can expect to find a “Review & Discussion” panel here at Screen Rant come Sunday night. Although, I have a feeling that you won’t want to wait until I finish writing the review to talk about all that transpires, so I’ll throw it up earlier and add my review later. Stay tuned.

  1. there will come a new season right? Dexter is one of the best tv shows that exists. it has all the elements of a super great show :D:D sucks that it doesnt go on tv here:( oh well, i will just have to wait:\

    Debra wont die.. unless she wants to do something else, cause michael wont cut of his fiancee:p

    and i absolutely love masuka! his laugh makes me laugh all the time:p him and batista are awesome:D

  2. Sam – I also despised LaGuerta in the book (and early on in the show). But I like her now too.

  3. Dexter leaves Rita because he cant have both a wife and a “mistress” aka dark passenger. That would change thier lives forever, and the episode is called the getaway……

    just a thought

  4. OMG that was insane

  5. Alright! I refuse to read any more comments here because I have to WAIT to see the darn episode and I don’t wanna see any spoilers.

    Will not return here until after I’ve viewed it ….

  6. OMG this HAS to be a dream?!?!?!? RIGHT???? The E.P. said that Rita would not be a victim of Trinity so how is she in the tub? And the baby sat there ALLLLL day? REALLY???? OMG!!!

  7. @Da Nile – well, he’s not technically the “Trinity” killer, as his victims actually came in fours. And babies sitting in the blood of their slain mothers for hours on end is not unheard of. It’s happened before.

  8. We heard Dexter’s internal dialogue reaching fever pitch during the last episode – blaming his own family for causing him to land in jail. That frenzied dialogue was a window into his slow mental breakdown and the “dark passenger” taking over. Dexter becomes increasingly sloppy, desperate, and disturbed throughout the whole season really… he even breaks the code at one point and kills an innocent guy. It comes to a point when he finds Rita, but it appears her hand wasn’t pointing to any spot of ash. The crime therefore wasn’t exactly in line with Trinity’s style. I think that’s because Trinity didn’t do it… Dexter did.

  9. Well, im guessing all of you have already seen the last episode of Dexter, and WOW WOW WOW. I coulden’t belive what happened. I actully felt like someone murdered someone I know…. Very difficult to follow next season. The writers have some serious work ahead of them. Unreal, Dexter is one of on of the best series I have ever watched. (besides sopronos of corse)

    But I must say one thing. I don’t like Debera! I hate her cry face all the time. lol
