I was CHEERING when they got rid of "that character". Annoying, fickle, whiny, passive-aggressive, nosy, controlling, drama-prone, seemed to exist simply to complicate Dexter's life. They did ease up on the character's dickishness toward the end, I think just to make viewers actually feel sadness rather than relief when "it" finally happened, but it didn't work on me.
Who's "that character"? Memory always blurs up a bit when it's older that 2 years.
