  • Debra.. Debra.. Debra

    Let me just rant a second about Debra. Oh I know, the show ended a long time ago and all that but this needs to be done. Many times throughout the show we have seen Debra telling Dexter "why don't you just talk to me" even though he clearly explains why he needed to maybe talk to someone else. In this episode he tells her that both he and Jonah have lost a significant other to the Trinity Killer and he felt he needed to talk to him as they have a connection and then Debra goes on with saying "why didn't you talk to me?". Ehm... he clearly stated why and honestly she doesn't understand! Debra pisses me off beyond measure and she did the same shit in season 1 when Dexter went to figure out who his biological father was. That was none of her business either and she still cries and screams about it. URGH, I can barely re-watch the show because I'm so pissed off. Now I know for a fact that she's done this a lot in other seasons as well but in this episode specifically, it pushed my buttons.moreless
  • Dexter tries to get Travis to trust him

    9.0
    As the police move closer to the Doomsday killer so does Dexter when he tries to work with Travis so that he will trust him and lead him to Geller Travis goes straight to the top of the suspect list when his sister turns up dead outside the school where before we saw Geller hit Travis and take him Things I didn't understand about the episode was when Dexter found the church where the Doomsday killers have been killing their victims and found Travis but Geller wasn't there and Travis saw him so then Dexter tries to catch up to him and somehow he just gets away because I can't see him crawling out of that small window But now Travis trusts Dexter and will help him get to Geller.moreless

    So, Dexter can get anyone he wants, kill anyone he wants, but gets outsmarted by a senior citizen in an abandoned church? Okay, cool.

    Dexter's latest offering was pretty much a summation of this season in general: an odd dynamic between Batista and his sister, Quinn self-destructing and Deb self-imploding. Too bad all of these latest developments did not exactly translate to one of the show's better recent episodes.

    One of the few times an episode ended and I was desperately wondering what would happen next.moreless

    So what's going on in this season? Why are Travis Marshall and Geller doing all sorts of horrible things to people? Do we really care about the new intern and Batista's sister dating? Is this the worst season yet of Dexter?

    Hearing that the show is coming back for two more seasons sort of reveals to us that Dexter won't be caught for a little while. It also makes me not worry about anything that will happen this season between Dexter and Travis. There's no chemistry between these two characters. Seriously, every time Dexter and Marshall are in a scene together, it feels painfully boring.

    If there's one thing the show has going for it, it's Deb's growing distrust of Dexter. The more that Dexter blows Deb off, the more she grows suspicious of him. All this time, we thought that Quinn would catch Dexter but maybe it'll be Deb. This is the one thing that the show has going for it at this point. Other then that, everything else is lame.

    The lamest of the lame is what the show is doing with 90% of its supporting cast. Batista has nothing to do but sit around and glare at his sister's new boyfriend, the lifeless intern. We have Quinn being drunk all the time and depressed about Deb and LaGuerta being a word that rhymes with "ditch." Seriously, what the heck do we have to do to get some focus from the writers?

    And then there's the Doomsday Killers. Travis gets knocked out by Geller and chained to the floor in the church. Dexter actually discovers the church and finds him chained to the floor. So if he's chained, does that mean Geller actually exists and chained him or did Travis chain himself? Who the hell knows... right now, I'm just frustrated with the show.moreless

    Dexter continues his Doomsday Investigation now that he's back in Miami and he makes nice with Deb after having missed five days. The overdose of a hooker is swept under the rug seemingly with LaGuerta's help who is doing it to help someone who we don't see (the only person is probably Matthews, since he's the only character above her that we know of) so it has to be someone higher up than she is. Deb trying to figure out where she fits into her role as a sister was an overall theme this week in her therapy sessions after finding out that Dex went to Nebraska without telling her. She even comes over to his place to make dinner and get him to talk to her, and Dexter blows her off and goes off to do his killer thing. I understand Deb's struggle, she feels as if she needs to confront her brother and get him to open up otherwise she's failing as a sister, which is extremely significant with Travis's sister being murdered byGeller(seemingly), and Deb seeing her as a sister protecting her brother. You know something will come up out of the therapy sessions eventually regarding Dexter. As far as the DDK stuff goes I'm bored by now, this episode certainly was a Sin of Omission unto itself as it covered old ground. Dexter tries to get Travis to roll over on Geller but the time it takes for him to try to protect his sister costs her life as the Whore. Dexter, finding a cloth on the curtains at the crime scene traced it to an old forgetful priest who absolves him of all of his sins in the humorous moment of the week, and the abandoned church where the man used to teach at is his target for DDK. Another bit I liked was Brother Sam's funeral of sorts, and how the Bible he wanted Dexter to have gave him real answers he needed to win over Travis to his cause. When Dex shows up at the church Travis tells Geller he's a real sadist and Geller of course escapes leaving Dex and Travis to get him together. Travis is now willing to get him and now Dex can decipher the code, but if Geller isn't real Dex is in for a real surprise, or maybe he is in which case I'm wasting time. We'll know before long and then a lot of "I told you so"s will be exchanged by fans of the show. A weaker entry in the series and the season together, however Dexter getting a transformed killer to go after the man who recruited him is a cool touch this show hasn't gone to dynamic wise yet. I feel really sorry for Travis's sister especially, and the pity award of the episode goes to Deb who's trial and error of communication just won't cut it this episode as the canyon between her and Dexter is ever expanding. The whole thing about children trusting in Dexter's opening narrative only loosely tied into the events of the episode, and Quinn got drunk yet again and proved he's the show's biggest jerk, and Angel gets the F for cliche award for threatening to pull a gun on his little sister's boyfriend. Sometimes I don't think this is even Dexter anymore. Shape up guys, you're better than this. I don't know if they can make another 4 episodes of going after Geller.moreless
