"i know exactly where i am. i am in some shitty fucking hell which is exactly what i deserve."
THE VERY LONG LIST OF AWESOME LADIES ON TV: Debra Morgan [Dexter]I could give a fuck who you fuck. Just don’t fuck with my investigation, you fuck!
Season 8 is already traumatizing me and it hasn’t even happened yet.
“I shot the wrong person in that trailer.”
Deb is going to have so much fucking guilt over what she did to LaGuerta, and she’s going to take it all out on Dex because if it wasn’t for him, she wouldn’t have been in that situation in the first place. Suddenly, she’s living this life that isn’t even hers because of something that Dexter did. She’s trapped being this person that had to decide between killing their boss––a high-ranking member of the force––and killing their own brother that they love more than anything. Her life is ruined because she’s incapable of putting anything before Dexter––because she’s incapable of putting herself before Dexter, even when he’s telling her to. She killed an innocent person to save him and now she has to live with that. Knowing Deb, I don’t think she’s going to be able to do that gracefully.
“All my life I thought I needed you. It’s the other way around.”
It’s like the clusterfuck of Deb’s life is finally clear to her. She’s been stuck viewing herself as this needy person because she relied so much on Dexter. It’s always been evident that she went to Dexter for help with her problems. It gave her this idea that she was the weak sibling and he was the strong one. That idea was enforced by people that paid more attention to Dexter than they did to her––e.g., Harry––and it left her with this complex that she would never be as good as Dexter. All of a sudden, she realizes that Dexter has needed her arguably more than she’s needed him. Depending on how she’s feeling about the situation, she could be saying this line in such a metric-fuck-ton of ways: she tethers him to his humanity; she gives him such a fundamentally normal cover; at times, he manipulated her and the rest of Miami Metro to get what he wanted.
I’m already 200% done with this season.
