Warning: This article contains spoilers for the Dexter finale. If you haven't yet seen it, don't. It's terrible.
OK, everybody who thought that the Dexter finale was an enraging, poorly written, nonsensical washout that diminished the overall quality of the show with it's stinking awfulness, please raise your hand.
Most of you? Good.
Quite why the writers thought it would be a good idea to have their murderous protagonist sail into a hurricane only to later appear as a woodchipper in what seemed like some strange homage to Wolverine: Origins remains a mystery.
Except that it isn't really.
Dexter producer John Goldwyn has now admitted that they wanted to kill off the blood splatter expert in the finale but Showtime forbade them. Talking to Vulture, he admitted:
They won't let us kill him. Showtime was very clear about that. When we told them the arc for the last season, they just said, 'Just to be clear, he's going to live.' There were a lot of endings discussed because it was a very interesting problem to solve, to bring it to a close. People have a relationship with Dexter, even if it doesn't have the size and the ferocity of the fan base for Breaking Bad. But it has a very core loyal following.
Yeah, and it's very loyal following are now pissed that you ruined the end of the show.
