After eight seasons of blood and fun, Showtime's Dexter ended Sunday night on a note of ponderous sorrow and penitence. You might as soon have expected Hannibal Lecter to open a funeral home for the indigent, or the Talented Mr. Ripley to sculpt balloons into animals for nursing-home patients.
So what happened to Michael C. Hall's Dexter Morgan, the Miami forensic analyst who, in secret, was a serial killer who got off on murdering fellow serial killers?
SPOILER ALERT: Plot details to follow.

As if Sunday's return of Showtime's popular slasher series Dexter wasn't sweet enough, pastry chef Sarah Magoon of Fort Lauderdale hot spot Steak 954 has created a dessert recipe inspired by the show.
Magoon got the idea for her Dexter-themed dessert – a cheesecake brulée topped with any berry compote – from the show’s opening sequence.
"The presentation reminded me of when Michael C. Hall is going through his morning routine of cooking eggs and cutting open a blood orange," she told PEOPLE. "There are all of these different things, especially food-wise, that are reminiscent of blood splatters."

Is a new romance – dare we say, puppy love – in Amanda Seyfried's life?
The In Time star, 26, was spotted in Los Angeles Friday morning with Dexter's Desmond Harrington, 34.
Sporting workout duds and rival baseball caps (Detroit Tigers for him; N.Y. Yankees for her), they were accompanied by Seyfried's rescue dog, Finn.
Their hike together comes after Seyfried and Black Hawk Down star Josh Hartnett cooled things down earlier this summer.

Love lost between Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter? No way.
The Dexter costars – who wed on New Years Eve in 2009 – and were divorced two years later – were spotted looking cozy during an evening out Wednesday in Venice Beach, Calif.
Hall, 41, clutched Carpenter's arm as the pair grabbed coffee before heading to the beach to watch the sun set. Once there, the actor pulled his ex-wife in for an embrace.

It's officially over for Dexter costars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter.
The exes, who play siblings Dexter and Debra Morgan on Showtime's hit series, had their divorce finalized on Friday, according to court documents.
Hall, 40, and Carpenter, 31, wed on New Year's Eve in 2008.
Separating in August 2010, Carpenter then filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences, in December. They have no children.

The Emmy Awards are almost here, and now it's time to tell us which show deserves to win outstanding drama series.
The nominees are a varied bunch:
There's fan-favorite football drama Friday Night Lights, which follows the stories unfolding inside a small Texas community; and last year's winner, the '60s advertising saga Mad Men, which stars January Jones as sullen housewife Betty Draper.
Then there's Dexter, the story of America's favorite serial killer; Boardwalk Empire about the life of Nucky Thompson, politician and gangster in Prohibition-era Atlantic City.
The Good Wife, which stars outstanding actress nominee Julianna Margulies, follows one woman's career and love life in the wake of her politician husband's high-profile sex scandal.
And Game of Thrones, HBO's well-received fantasy drama based on the best-selling book series A Song of Fire and Ice, features a cast of feuding characters, including exiled princess Daenerys Targaryen played by Emilia Clarke.
It's going to be a tough race when the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards air live from Los Angeles's Nokia Theatre on Fox Sept. 18.

After revealing earlier this year that he was battling cancer, Dexter star Michael C. Hall is healthy, whole and back in the role of Showtime's oddly noble serial killer – and grateful for the support he received from his cast and crew during the tough period.
"I count myself lucky on so many fronts – and certainly in regards to the Hodgkin's [lymphoma]," a fit-looking Hall, again sporting a full head of hair after his treatments, told PEOPLE this week at San Diego's Comic-Con International.
"It's a real gift to be able to go back to work," says Hall, 39. "One of the best things about it is that it emerged at a time when we were close to the end of shooting. I was able to treat it over the hiatus and it didn't interrupt our production schedule, which, obviously, would have its effect on me, but it would have its effect on our cast, our crew, people who count on this family to keep making the show."
