Dexter fans were skeptical when it was announced that the show would return for one more season. Dexter: New Blood aired its finale last night. The showrunner believed the series revival would make people’s brains explode. Juding from the reaction on social media, plenty of heads did blow up after seeing the latest episode.
The finale cast the titular Dexter Morgan in a very different light than viewers are used to seeing. The psychopathic killer seemed to have lost all of the character’s sympathy. Twitter was not thrilled with the way the show ended.
“In my heart this will always be the only true Dexter ending. The one I saw today just sucks, and I will never, ever change my mind.”
“i read the spoilers for the new dexter ending and have decided i’m not watching it lmfaooo”
“Why bring reboot dexter if you’re going to end it like that ? They hyped up the batista sh*t and he didn’t even get to come face to face with dexter. Terrible ending I loved the season but what a terrible ending to a fantastic show.”
“I’m shocked and I certainly won’t stop loving my favorite show, a big part of my life just for its ending but… if you are a true Dexter fan this ending will make you sick.”
The sour end comes to a series that received critical acclaim during its original run. Dexter viewers were cautiously optimistic that the series could find new life with the reboot. Now that the season has aired, fans are airing their grievances.
