  • WHO DO YOU THINK WILL DIE IN THE FINALE?

    Dexter "Do You See What I See?" Review: LaGuerta's Christmas Miracle

    It's not that the penultimate episode of Season 7 was especially bad. But "Do You See What I See?" over-relied on old Dexter tropes and in many ways, suggested that the conclusion to this season isn't going to be as…

  • Episode Summary

    LaGuerta now believes that Dexter is the Bay Harbor Butcher and sends Matthews to talk to him. Dexter also must find a way to kill the last of his mother's killers when Hector Estrada is released. Dexter also questions Hannah about when Debra mysteriously just blacks out leading to a car accident.

      I love Dexter
    • Dexter tries to throw La Guerta off the Bay Harbour Butcher case once and for all.

      9.5
      La Guerta now believes Dexter is the butcher but now tries to prove it I didn't see that coming with Hector because La Guerta let him out of prison as a trap for Dexter which nearly worked if Hector hadn't of told Dexter that she was the one who let him out Dexter also has problems with Hannah McKay after Debra believes that she was poisoned so Hannah wouldn't go to prison Deb was ok but when Dexter found out that Hannah actually poisoned Deb he never killed her but just let her go to jail.moreless
    • Oh Really, Dex?

      8.0
      Why the hell did you apologize to Hannah when she got arrested, Dexter? She totally deserved it! I was hoping something more on the lines of "Don't you dare ever touch my sister again!". You still don't realise that she was a bad choice COMPLETELY. You still think that she is the right family for you whereas you need someone like Rita or Deb(as a sister) who would watch your back and truly care about you and your loved ones. Not Like Hannah.

      I don't know about others but I'm tired of this back-and-forth of Dexter's love life almost every alternate season(Except Rita). I think Rita was the right ray of light that Dexter needed. After that, I just think that knowing the rest of the women he eloped with were guest stars made things pretty obvious of what would happen at the end of this season.

      Until this episode, I didn't know that 'Dexter' was such a predictable show. I kept reading comments after each episode and most people's opinions came out to be true such as the idea Hannah would poison Deb to save herself. 'Dexter', the show, lost its unpredictability after Season 4's finale for me.

      Let's hope that next week's finale surprises us all with it's unpredictable ending.moreless
    • Past, Christmas Present, and Future

      9.5
      Dexter begins to see a potential future with Hannah and things seem to be going his way when the man that ordered the hit on his mother, Hector Estrada, is brought up for parole and Dex sees it as a great holiday gift to himself. Deb gets into an automobile accident after having taken too many anti-anxiety meds which is coincidentally how Hannah said Sal Price would've gone out if he hadn't stopped at Dexter's. Deb was visited by Hannah that night before the accident when Hannah said that she wanted to mend fences between them since Dexter will be in both of their lives from now on. Dexter tests a bottle of water that Deb was drinking from the night she got into the accident after she seems quite positive that Hannah poisoned her. Dexter finding the anxiety meds in the water bottle seem conclusive enough which makes him question if he can ever really trust Hannah even though when he confronts her she denies it. There's no way to be sure but I think Deb did it to herself although I don't remember if Dexter told Deb about how Sal Price was supposed to go out but nonetheless it makes Dexter decide that he would always think it was Hannah when Deb was targeted since she's the only one who is actively going after her. I wasn't really worried for Hannah's witness to her poisoning the counselor since she is a junkie and in a murder trial Hannah's right that any law student could discredit her with her past drug abuse. Dexter gives Deb the tip of the pen laced with the poison Hannah used to kill Sal and Hannah is taken away and her saying "You should've killed me" was heartbreaking since she has been so integral in Dex's life this season and she would rather die than live in a world where Dexter betrayed her. Meanwhile, the other fantastic part of the episode was Matthews questioning Dexter about being the BHB. Dexter concocting the story of Doakes having a boat and then he and Deb buying one and setting it up to look like he kept it hidden to dispose of bodies was a great tag. Although if Matthews is actually more manipulative than he seems and is on LaGuerta's side and only tricking Dexter with the good cop act. But LaGuerta isn't convinced since Dexter is a forensics expert and when Dexter approaches Estrada as a guy needing to offload narcotics to a guy who knows people they set up a meet. That night they meet in a shipping container and Dex injects him as typical and Dexter lets himself be known, "Dickie Moser" but Estrada accuses him of being in on his death with "that cop bitch" which gives Dexter pause and he is told that LaGuerta pushed Estrada's parole up to trap Dexter into the kill. LaGuerta had uniforms tailing Estrada and arrives on the scene to see the kill room, hopefully Dex didn't leave any trace evidence behind in his rush to leave and when he is escorting Estrada away Estrada dives into the ocean and Dexter manages to sneak away too though without his kill. There's a lot to deal with next week, and I don't even need to go into the Quinn finding out Nadia moved and was too hurt to tell him the truth thing. But Batista I hope will get out alive and retire happily to be a restauranteur since there are very few options left for Deb, Dex, and LaGuerta without life altering consequences folding in on them. By far the best episode of Season 7 and one that refreshes how Dexter can still surprise and be enthralling as he dances with the cat and mouse with LaGuerta now. The next episode being titled "Surprise Motherf**ker" makes me think that Doakes may have kept more on Dexter than we believed and may have just the nail to put Dexter in the prison coffin.moreless
    • Do You See What I See

      7.5
      An enjoyable episode here. The Hannah character seemed to complement Dexter will, but this writing actually did her character justice, as it was unlikely she would led Debra stand in her way.



      Dexter almost getting caught was good, but you knew it would not happen like that, so the suspense was lacking a bit.
