Spoiler alert! I’m going to be talking about Season 5, Episode 2 of Dexter.
Despite the fact that Dexter didn’t murder anyone this episode, it was still captivating none-the-less. With all the shit going on in his life and with the kids, it’s a surprise he’s still standing. Oh em gee.
So, Dexter is finally cleared with the FBI. Truthfully, I was kind of worried about that. I wasn’t sure when Rita’s murder actually happened and there was that whole block of time where Dexter was murdering Arthur that was unaccounted for. So, that all worked out. The Mitchell family each gave a different description of Kyle Butler, Dexter’s persona he derived to get close to Arthur. Low and behold, Quinn is putting the pieces together. This could get messy. Not only are Quinn and Debra having a “thing,” but from the looks of it, he’s going to start digging up dirt on Dexter. I see him falling in love with Debra and having to chose between bringing Dexter in or being the Deb. We shall see…
So, I totally thought we were going to see Quinn and Debra go at it again. Alas, there was no fornication. However, it was interesting that Debra finally admitted that they had sex. Again, I see this developing into a relationship. You can quote me on that. Dun dun dun.
Now, I feel like we’re seeing a very responsible version of Debra. She’s no longer playing the victim and is helping her big brother. She’s trying her hardest to make sure that everything works out. She has opened up her home and let go of her privacy for the sake of Dexter and the kids. Super nice of her.
LaGuerta and Batista are having some marital issues. She has a savings account with a quarter million dollars in it that Batista happened to find out about. He feels like she is keeping this from him and she feels like she is saving money for the both of them. Due to some miscommunication, Batista feels that she thinks he is irresponsible. Stupid on his part, but what can I say? This ends with Batista and Masuka in a bar getting hammered. Someone lips off about LaGuerta and Batisa turns into the drunk Hulk and beats his ass. I don’t blame him truthfully. We’ll see what the repercussion are.
Dexter has discovered a new lead to help him return to his old self; Fowler. A seemingly odd fellow, Dexter has to dig deep to see if he fits into Dexter’s rules. After nearly getting caught and following Fowler out into the middle of nowhere, Dexter discovers the bodies of Fowler’s victims. If there was a question before, it’s gone now. This guy is going to die by Dexter’s hand. I am giddy with anticipation.
The department also has a new case on their hands. So far, it seems like a murder / suicide, but we should know better. I smell the antagonist for season 5. We’ll have to wait and see how this unfolds. Stay tuned next week! Episode 3 on Showtime at 9:00PM PST.
