Dexter’s remaining season was broadly criticised for having an ending that did not fulfill the present’s loyal fanbase. The final episode, titled Remember the Monsters?, noticed Michael C. Corridor’s serial killer beginning over as a lumberjack within the solitude of the Pacific Northwest. Many followers felt that this transfer was out of character, together with the lead actor who mentioned that he would’ve rather have seen Dexter die in the end.“I imagine that [Michael C. Hall] was not fully glad with it, and this is a chance to make that proper, however that is not why we’re doing it,” Phillips defined, referencing Corridor’s distaste for the present’s ending. “We’re doing this as a result of there’s such a starvation for Dexter on the market. We’re not undoing something. We’re not doing movie-magic. We’re not going to betray the viewers and say, ‘Whoops, that was all a dream.'”
He underscored his strategy to the restricted collection, saying, “what occurred within the first eight years occurred within the first eight years.”
