Didn’t enjoy where Dexter wound up in its series finale? You’re not alone.
Speaking with The Daily Beast, actor Michael C. Hall was asked about his feelings on leaving Dexter behind — specifically, whether he liked the way the series finale left Dexter Morgan alive and with a new life far away from home.
“Liked it? I don’t think I even watched it,” he said. “I thought it was narratively satisfying — but it was not so savory.”
“I think the show had lost a certain amount of torque,” he continued. “Just inherently because of how long we’d done it, because of the storytelling capital we’d spent, because our writers may have been gassed. … Maybe some people wanted a more satisfying — maybe they wanted a happy ending for him, either a happy ending or a more definitive sense of closure.”
