Dexter Finale with Spoilers!

If you don't want to know how it all ends, don't read any more. If you want to know what happens to Dexter, however, read on!

I was privy to the final episode tonight and I'm happy to say that everything finally falls into place. First of all, Lila finally serves a purpose when she discovers Doakes in the cabin in the Everglades and...blows it up! That's right, pyro Lila finally does some good for someone. Doakes takes the fall for the Bay Harbor murders. Dexter gets his groove back and celebrates by doing everything he normally does and a few things he normally doesn't (like having sex with Rita). Deb and Lundy are still screwing around and bickering about their relationship. Lila knows Dexter's terrible secret and holds it over him. Dexter counters by accusing her of being a sociopath. Lila tells him they're soul mates, Dexter tries to kill her but ends up putting Deb in a choke hold by accident (awkward!). Lila fucking KIDNAPS Cody and Astor. I know! And she tries to kill them all in some crazy Jane Eyre-esque housefire. I KNOW!! In an uncharacteristic display of actual police skill, Deb rallies the troops, finds him and puts out an APB on Lila. Awesome. Dexter, who is singed but alive, could not be happier. The kids are fine and Lila is AWOL. But not for long. Dexter tracks her down and kills her like hog in the yard. I sort of wish Lila had a more climactic commupance than a simple spinal epidural and knife to the chest, but hey, you can't have everything. And Dexter is back to his old ways (but with a new slide box). It's going to be a wonderful third season.
