  • SURVIVOR: SERIAL KILLERS

    Dexter "Helter Skelter" Review: An Uneasy Alliance Begins... and Ends

    Only on a television show like Dexter can an entire episode revolve around the uneasy alliance between two cold-blooded killers who've spent most of the previous half-dozen installments plotting to kill one another.

  • Episode Summary

    Dexter is surprised to find that Issak comes to him for help when his life is in danger but because Issak has had Hannah kidnapped Dexter has to cooperate. La Guerta shares her theory to Mathews about the Bay Harbor Butcher and Debra is embarrassed about telling Dexter that she's in love with him.

      What Debra said when she discovered the bodies? That's all I have to say about that.

      this website is the only website where dexter fans fail to see how awful this show has become. all other websites and forums the fans are critical, but not here. this episode was another predictable one and when not predictable, it was really dissapointing, like seeing isak being killed by a stupid secondary character and then stupidly choosing to die - even though he could have lived if he went to a hospital (he survived the boat ride!). but hannah, of course, survived. it is also pathetic how the writers are trying to make hannah look likeable. that doesn't work with me, she's awful, and the girl who plays her is awful too (beautiful, but a terrible actress). the only good thing about this episode was the conversation between dexter and deb, in which he tells her that what she's feeling is logical. it was actually a good explanation for that absurd line the show was going... (incest, really?). anyway, another terrible episode. i so hope dexter gets caught SOON. and by laguerta.moreless
    • Dexter helps Issac so he can save Hannah.

      9.5
      This episode proves Dexter will do anything to save Hannah and it shows how much he cares about her because when Hannah is kidnapped by Issac Dexter works with Issac to kill the people after him I wasn't sure whether Dexter could trust Issac but in the end he could but Issac was shot and Dexter slowly watched him die It was interesting to see what Debra did when she found Hannah when she was stabbed because she could have let her die but decided to call an ambulance Matthews also returned in this episode because La Guerta asks for help on the Bay Harbour Butcher case We find out the list that she has been looking at is people in Miami Metro who has a boat and is asking Matthews to see if any names stand out Matthews who is still mad with La Guerta for making him leave Miami Metro decides to help with the Bay Harbour Butcher case.moreless

      Another disappointing episode for me. What they did to the main bad guy this season is so destructive and they chose to make him look very weak, something he was not initially.



      There is just not enough action for my liking, even if the episode is still addicting TV.

      What started out a great season has left me disappointed, with only 3 episode's left it as come to this. So much happened in this episode & for me i felt let down, i agree with the other review. Of course i will still go along for the ride & see how the series ends. nuff said.
