‘Dexter’ series finale will have ‘some interpretation’ but is like a ‘roller coaster’

Star Michael C Hall spoke briefly about the conclusion of Showtime’s hit series Dexter which airs later in September.

DEXTER-SEASON-8 under plastic phoster“I don’t think the ending will leave any huge questions in the air like ‘The Sopranos’ did in terms of ‘What was the next frame?’ or ‘Where are we headed?'” the actor told reporters at a press roundtable in New York on Friday. “There will be some interpretation left for people to debate about. … There will be a pretty broad spectrum to the response: Some people will be satisfied, some people will wish it had gone down differently, some people will be both of those things!”

When asked what the final episodes would be like, he declined to answer, but compared them to a roller-coaster ride. “All aspects of all the best roller coasters,” he told TODAY.com.

“Loops, hills, unanticipated turns, tunnels, upside-down sections, yep!”

The character has battled the temptation of a “normal” life and Hall sees that as a perfect conclusion for the serial killer or killers.

“Dexter, at different points over the life of the show, found himself entertaining the idea that he could be rehabilitated, that he could live a life that isn’t primarily in service of his Dark Passenger. … But things have happened that have taught him at least temporarily, and maybe more permanently, that that’s not a possibility.”
