* BittersweetEnding: With a lot of shifting towards the bitter side.
** The Season 4 finale: [[Dexter finishes off Trinity only to find out that same night, Trinity took out Rita beforehand, leaving their son crying in her blood]].
** Also the series finale, [[spoiler: Debra gets shot because Dexter didn't kill the Brain Surgeon when he had the chance. She develops a stroke and loses almost all brain function, and Dexter pulls the plug himself, then buries her at sea with the rest of his victims. Dexter realizes everyone he's ever been close to has died, and he decides to save Hannah and Harrison from himself by faking his death and exiling himself. The series ends with Dexter in a self-imposed prison in Canada, alone, and a devastated shell of the man he used to be]].

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Subverted when Quinn explains to Masuka why no one wants to come to his lecture:
-->'''Quinn''': You are the most vulgar person I've ever met. Every line out of your mouth is a sick joke.\\
'''Masuka''': (''defensively'') I'm funny.\\
'''Quinn''': (''laughing'') Yeah, you can be. {''seriously'') But you can also be completely disgusting, and sometimes I think that's all people see.


Added DiffLines:

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: After [[spoiler: Batista gets stabbed in season one]], Debra comments that she hates feeling so helpless. Masuka just stares blankly, and she asks why he's not making some perverted comment about providing sexual support in a time of need. Masuka just looks at her blankly and responds "My friend got stabbed, and he may die."

Added DiffLines:

** PlayedWith in Rita's ex-husband, Paul. Yes, he was a drug addict who physically and sexually abused his wife, and tried to at least physically abuse his kids, and even after he gets out of prison and gets clean he tries to shove himself back into Rita's life in the most aggressive way. But he genuinely does seem to have cleaned up his act, seems like he's trying to be a better person who sometimes lapses back into bad habits (notably, playing the "domineering male" card), and genuinely wants to do his best by his kids. Unfortunately, he makes the mistake of trying to play Alpha Wolf with Dexter one too many times. Whether or not he ultimately deserved what happened to him is a very complicated question.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Miguel Prado seems extreme when compared to Dexter. And perhaps Dexter himself is an extremist when compared to Doakes.

* MorningRoutine: The famous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ej8-Rqo-VT4 opening sequence]]. It'll either {{Squick}} you out completely, or make you hungry for eggs and bacon.
