Best Seasons From Dexter

The Top Ten
1 Season 4

My close second-favorite season is the fourth, because of the Trinity Killer. The way he executed his kills and interacted with his victims was remarkable writing. The scene where he left Rita for dead as part of his cycle was fantastic and demonstrated that even in death, he had the last laugh.

This season is my second favorite right after the first. The rest of the series felt mediocre to me.

Between the Trinity Killer, the family themes, the twists, the deaths, and the unforgettable plot, Dexter Season 4 beats all others.

2 Season 1

The first season is my favorite because of the Ice Truck Killer, aka Brian Moser, aka Rudy Cooper. He is my favorite character in the entire series. The way he left clues and set up imagery pointing to his crime scenes and how he approached Dexter to join him in criminal ventures were incredible.

His performance was outstanding, and the season was amazing because of him. The first time we see him introduced casually, with no one suspecting him to be the Ice Truck Killer, makes him even more amazing.

3 Season 2

When the series protagonist suddenly becomes the central antagonist of most of the season, with several twists and turns thrown into the mix, you know you're watching good television. Purely epic Dexter.

My absolute favorite. I enjoyed every episode!

I loved Season 2 so much! Definitely the best. Seasons 6 and 4 are a close second and third, though.

4 Season 5
5 Season 7

Seasons 7 and 8 were quite boring, as Hannah's character felt dumb to me and wasted screen time. Her role didn't make sense, as it was established throughout the show that Dexter didn't have the same empathetic feelings or sympathy for his relationships. Suddenly, Hannah is supposed to be accepted by him, which felt forced and like a poor attempt to replace Rita, who was irreplaceable.

Overall, it was a lame season. Isaak Sirko was a cool role but was overshadowed by the Hannah stupidity throughout the season.

6 Season 3
7 Season 6

This is my third-favorite season, right after seasons 1 and 4. It has a great plot twist, and the central villain is amazing. Travis Marshall, aka the Doomsday Killer, was an incredible character, and his manifestation of James Gellar as his dark passenger made the season even more intriguing.

After season 4, something this well-written was bound to happen again, but the series went downhill after this season.

It was better than Season 8. I don't know how the heck that's above this.

8 Season 8

Oliver Saxon, aka Daniel Vogel, aka The Brain Surgeon, was a good role and had a good storyline. However, none of it mattered because Hannah took up too much screen time, spoiling this season as well as the previous one. The essence of the show was ruined in seasons 7 and 8 due to Hannah. The show spiraled downward because Dexter was made to care for her, which destroyed the original Dexter's story and the written work as a whole.

The ending to this season was horrible, low-key, and without any powerful premise, not ending on a high note. Despite the lame Hannah moments, the poor ending, and the weakness compared to previous seasons like 1, 4, and 6, this season is somewhat watchable because of Oliver Saxon's role, but that's about it.
