Dexter's Final Season, Episode 11: Dexter Says Goodbye to His Dark Passenger

Dexter the show is gearing up to finish its successful eight year run, and Dexter the character is gearing up to start a new life with a new wife. Both events were blatantly paralleled in last night's eleventh episode.

It began with the ceremonial cleansing of the hands - as Dexter washes his hands of Vogel's blood in the opening scene, what he is really doing is ridding himself of all the bloodshed he's caused in his life. The whole point of leaving to Argentina with Hannah is to start a new life as a new person, no more Dark Passenger, no more blood. However, before he can leave, his family roots tie him down and he needs to do one last thing to protect his family: kill Saxon -- AKA Daniel Vogel.
