Dexter Morgan is not the only one who’s burdened with Harry’s Code. The show’s writers are tied to the same rules. Which is why this TV Addict thinks he’s discovered the only way in which Dexter can make it to a third season alive and unscathed.
For the ‘brilliant’ theory on how next week’s finale will play out, as well as some random musings about last night’s fantastic penultimate episode — click the link below. [Note, if you've already seen the finale through ways in which we won't mention — PLEASE don't comment and spoil!]
So Lila finally discovered Dexter’s dark secret. And while we could start off with a rant about how for such a criminal mastermind, Dexter was pretty stupid to leave an electronic navigator that tracked his whereabouts in his minivan — we’ll cut him some slack. As odds are good that he’s got a lot on his mind.
So here’s how we predict next week’s finale is going to go down: Thanks to the code, it’s clear that Dexter is not killing Doakes. That said, there’s no way Doakes can live. Even in the world television — where audiences are often asked to enormous leaps of faith — fans will not buy into a third season where Doakes rots in prison thanks to Dexter’s frame job. There’s simply too much circumstantial evidence. Especially now that LaGuerta and Lundy are hot on Dexter’s trail.
The way I see it, next Sunday’s finale is going to kill two birds, well people actually with one stone. Lila, who’s clearly shown she’s off her rocker will come to the conclusion, after realizing the truth about Dexter, that they’re soul mates. Hoping to get in Dexter’s good graces, she’ll kill Doakes. Which will finally give Dexter an excuse to kill Lila. Keeping Harry’s Code, and Dexter’s true identity intact.
