Jennifer Carpente and Michael C. Hall
After eight seasons, over 100 kills and more blood than we can imagine, Dexter will sign off for good on Sunday.
From the beginning, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) was a serial killer incapable of having emotions or a true human connection. But over the course of eight seasons, he's faced love, loss, heartache and even friendship with his foul-mouthed sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), proving that he may have the capacity for feelings. Will that be Dexter's downfall in the series finale? We'll find out Sunday (9/8c, Showtime). Before then, however, Hall and Carpenter look back at eight seasons of kills and thrills...

Question: Love your column and hope you could shed some light on an issue for me. As I understand it, TV shows/actors submit one episode of what they feel is their best work (that season) for Emmy consideration. Is this true? If so, don't you think the criteria should require a greater sample size since one episode, no matter the quality, does not necessarily tell the story of an entire season? —Charles

Last Tango in Halifax
Anyone seeking momentary relief from the dazzling darkness of the anti-hero vogue so prevalent on Sunday nights — epitomized by Breaking Bad's harrowing race to the finish line — will find a delightful tonic in PBS's Last Tango in Halifax (Sunday, check tvguide.com listings), a winning romance about two widowed seventysomethings and their supportive but screwed-up families.
Not a meth dealer (Bad), serial killer (Dexter), bootlegger (Boardwalk Empire) or brooding bully of a fixer (Ray Donovan) in sight, but life is still not without its complications in Halifax, a six-part charmer blessed with instant chemistry between the esteemed Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid (from the recent Upstairs, Downstairs remake) as Alan and Celia, lonely pensioners and former childhood pals who reconnect on Facebook after 60 years and impulsively decide to take a second chance on love.

Our top moments of the week:
13. Biggest Disappointment: In the midst of a lackluster final season, Dexter reveals that the identity of the season-long villain, The Brain Surgeon, is Vogel's son ... whom no one cares about. This is almost as bad as when we learned that Edward James Olmos was a figment of Colin Hanks' imagination in Season 6. Anticlimactic much?
12. Sauciest Critique: Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson never fails to brighten the So You Think You Can Dance judges' panel with his cheeky wit and genuine fanboy fawning. In his latest visit, he vows to...
Our top moments of the week:
13. Better Late Than Never Award: Pretty Little Liars' penultimate episode not only reveals Red Coat to be CeCe Drake (OK, not a shocker there), but a mysterious young guy named Travis tells Hanna that he was there the night of Wilden's murder and knows it wasn't Ashley Marin. Although he's reluctant to tell the police what he saw due to "bad blood," he goes down to the station in the final moments. Will Hanna's mom finally go free? Or does A have a plan to keep her locked up?
12. Worst Edit Job: For weeks now on...

When will Marshall tell Lily about his judgeship on How I Met Your Mother? Please don't tell me it'll take the whole wedding weekend/season. — Mary
ADAM: Marshall's secret will be part of the "dirty laundry" that executive producer Carter Bays promises will "come exploding out" during the wedding weekend like last year's meatball sub. But naturally, it won't be Marshall who spills the beans.
