Dexter - My Season 7 Wish List

So the new season of Dexter is days away, and I've decided to note a few points of improvement, in hope that maybe somehow one of the production guys will read this and take them into consideration. Oh wait, they already filmed it. Well, in season 8 then.

1. Kill LaGuerta - For (oh) God's sake, PLEASE kill her already! She does nothing in the show than being a complete b*tch and having non-interesting side-plots. I don't know if it's the actress I don't like or the character, but either way she's incredibly annoying. You know what? You don't have to kill her (though I would prefer it), just get her out the show somehow! Write her a 2-minute scene where she's being transferred to Alaska or something. I know this show isn't really sticking with the books, but in this case I wish they had, 'cause she dies way early in them.

2. Give new characters an actual purpose - There was always some who found out Dex's secret, or was close to it. Doakes did and got blown to bits, Miguel did and didn't make it that long as well. Then we got Quinn, who started to investigate and then....backed down for some reason I can't remember. This season, it looked like detective Mike from Chicago will take the reins, but he didn't. He was just...There. Why was he introduced to the show? Just as the cop who helps them with the religious stuff? Come on...

Numero Dos - Ryan the intern. Sure, she's cute and everything, but what was her point? Just teasing Masuka? She just came, sold the hand online, and went poof. Which brings us to numero Tres - the other intern guy \ video game designer. He was just...weird. He had this creepy obsession with Dexter and felt crushed when he didn't approve of his video game (boo-hoo) but that's it! It went nowhere until the season's end, when we found out he was the one who bought the hand and sent it to Dexter. Why? We'll find out next season, I guess. But did they really have to introduce him really early just to have him do nothing all season long except being Jamie's boyfriend? 

3. Better writing - It seems that in these last two seasons, the show's writing kinda lost its original spark. For example, the writing in season 4 was so great. Especially between Dexter and Arthur. The meal scene in "Hungry Man" was fantastic, and tell me you didn't feel literally terrified at the ending of the penultimate episode (and the finale, of course). unfortunately, it seems the writing kinda went downhill since. The best example is the Gellar "twist". It might have fooled some people, but I know I'm not the only one who realized it early in the season. I'm pretty sure they could have pulled it off, if it was written better. What a shame.

 4. More blasts from the past - Although this season wasn't that great (thought it was better than season 5, IMO) it had its moments. Mos Def was a great addition, and Colin Hanks was a solid villain. But the best thing about this season was the episode "Nebraska". It had an "unleashed' Dexter driving around and being impulsive, all with the company of his Beloved Brother Brian. That plus the plot that brought back Jonah made "Nebraska" an awesome episode. I wouldn't mind seeing some more old characters this coming season.

5. Interesting side plots - Sorry, but I don't care about the problems in LaGuerta and Batista's marital life or the Captain blackmailing LaGuerta. Give us something good! For example, I really liked the Brother Sam side plot. It was well written, Mos Def was great and it made an impact on Dexter's character. Now all they have to do is write good side-plots like this for the other characters as well. 

That's basically the main things I wanna see. There are other things, like more kill room time (remember when it was more than 2-3 minutes long?) but they're pretty minor. Anyway, after season 6's promising cliffhanger, I really hope we'll get a great season. 

Hope you enjoyed reading. I would love to hear your thoughts, so hit the comments. What would you improve? And what would you take out?

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
