There's only one episode of "Dexter" left and as Showtime's serial killer thriller races to the finish line, a couple of things seem clear: Dexter Morgan is deluding himself if he thinks he's actually going to escape to a happy ending in Argentina, and the show's writing is turning "Dexter" into an unintentional comedy.
If last week's "Dexter" felt like an "Are we there yet?" car trip, "Make Your Own Kind of Music" announced that Dexter's end-game was very much in motion. The Brain Surgeon has been revealed ... and he's Vogel's son! And as the final scene showed, Dexter's spiritual mother chose her deranged biological progeny over her perfect pupil.
"Dexter" finally put something significant on the table in its Season 6 finale, and not just the Doomsday Killer Travis Marshall. Colin Hank's religious murderer did meet his fate, like so many other 'Dexter' villains before him, but the really pivotal development of the finale was Deb finally learning the truth about her adopted brother (who she's apparently in love with). Now that she witnessed one of Dexter's kills, the show can never be the same, and that's a very good thing.
