Let’s Talk: Finales

I know I’m late on doing this, but I just finished watching Homeland and want to do a finale let’s talk addition on Dexter and Homeland. I am not going to hold back on anything and saying exactly what I felt during the finale, sorry in advance if I upset you. I will begin with Dexter and then will talk about Homeland.

Dexter season finale was on point. It was one of the best finales they had in a long long time. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, trying to figure out what will happen next. Even though most of us kind of figured that Laguerta was going to die, but did anyone see Debra was going to kill her? I didn’t, I actually thought that Debra would witness Dexter killing her. What will season 8 bring? With this crazy finale anything could happen and I’m excited to see what the writers will bring. I’m not going to lie, after season 6 I was on defense if I should keep watching the show or just give up on it because the entire season 5 and 6 where just not that good, both huge let downs. When season 7 began the show did a total turn around and is better than ever. It is back to the roots, but with a twist. I’m glad Hannah didn’t die and hope she does comeback in season 8. I absolutely love Yvonne and she did an amazing job on Hannah. The only thing I didn’t like or believe was when Hannah confessed that she poisoned Debra. I still believe that Deb did that on herself to get Dexter away from Hannah.

Episode 212

 

Now it’s onto Homeland. For me, the finale was a drag and a huge let down. I wanted more, something that was going to be make the finale an extra push and ending with wanting more. Instead the finale bored me and was not excited about the finale. I actually thought before watching and was expecting something huge to happen, but nothing did. The whole thing about is Brody good or is he a terrorist isĀ gettingĀ old for me and I know it’s been 2 seasons, but one season he’s bad and the second half he turns good and back to bad. I know he had something to do with it, even if he didn’t move his car he knew, but didn’t do anything. The reason I say this is because when he talked to Carrie, Mike, and Dana before all this happened just showed something was off from him and something doesn’t seem right. I hope season 3 will be different and the writers do something out of the box and not re use other seasons. On another note, I do believe that Saul’s wife had something to do with it. The people in the background just look like nothing happened and the way she was talking to Saul, she was shaking like she can’t say something.

 

What did you guys think of the finales of these two Showtime shows?

Tonight is Great… For Television

Tonight is the night to sit and relax and watch amazing shows. Lots of shows will be having great guests stars, storylines, aftermaths, all the above. So what shows am I really looking forward to?!

The Good Wife 9pm CBS

The show maybe delayed due to football, but tonight’s episode I’m looking forward to. This episode is directed by Josh Charles, as we all know him Will Gardner. It is his first directorial in the series, so I’m looking forward to what he has done. This episode is the debut of Amanda Peet and the law firm is defending her. We also get back one of my favorite judges, if you recall “in my opinion” judge Charles. We also get judge Leora aka the military judge who hates Will. From what we saw last week from Maddie Hayward looks like Alicia and her will be enemies.

Revenge 9pm ABC

Tonight’s episode will be crazy as it is the episode where Victoria and Conrad marry each other. We will see what will happen when Emily finds out that Mason is on to Fauxmanda. That Aiden has teamed up with Daniel to take Nolan’s money, will Aiden get hurt by Emily and how will Daniel feel when he finds out Aiden is with Emily?!

Homeland 10pm SHOWTIME

Each episode just gets better and better. This is episode is going to be just as great and I’ve been waiting for this episode because how will Brody handle being a double agent. Will he be able to handle it? I hope he doesn’t slip up with Abu Nazir. Will Abu Nazir ever find out? What will happen if he finds out?

Dexter 9pm SHOWTIME

With only 6 episodes to go these 6 will be the break or make or the season. The season so far has been great and I’ve really enjoyed it. I like that they went in a different route with 2 killers instead of just one. And actually have a female killer. Usually the killers are male, but I like the twist.

Once Upon A Time 8pm ABC

We finally get to meet Jorge as the giant in the bean stock. We also will see hook and which side he really is on. Maybe that isn’t hook maybe it’s Cora acting like hook. We never will know until later. We finally get the backstory of Emma. I’m way too excited for this. Maybe get closer to figuring out who Henry’s father is.

Let’s Talk: Homeland

Just when I feel like I know what’s going to happen, Homeland just twists it and makes it even better. I was really excited for this episode and didn’t expect any of this to go down.

Brody and Jessica are having their rough patch again. I want Jessica and Michael to be together. There chemistry just screams through my tv screen. Brody is staying at a hotel. First he bumps into Carrie at the CIA and then offers her for a drink. I was so excited for them to have screen time together and how crazy it will be.

Finally, David sees the video Brody has made and sees what Carrie has seen all this time. David and Saul team up to take him down and see who else works for Abu Nazir. They totally missed the journalist, hope they figure that out soon.

I thought David will let Carrie run this, but that backfired. Instead we get Brian Quinn and do I smell Carrie and Quinn getting together?! For some odd reason I do and see him liking her, but she doesn’t want to and he ends up catching her with all this mess that’s going on.

I like the storyline Dana and Finn are going they are cute together. I think her boyfriend now will not take it well. I like that Dana told Finn she can’t be with him until she breaks up with her boyfriend.

What did you think of the episode? Did it surprise you just as much as it did for me? Go Carrie!
