Dexter > Dexter Review: Oh, Brothers > Comments Page 2
@Matt, He doesn't care that DDK is going around killing people, he just wants to kill him himself. Dexter has said many times that he's not a vigilante going around saving people from murderers, he's just selfishly satisfying his own murderous desires. That Dexter is letting DDK go around killing people is not inconsistent with his code. Travis can kill all he wants, Dexter is only interested in killing him in the end. It's been that way forever, just sometimes there's emotional connections involved as well.
Dexter has always been my favorite show. But this season has just been so bad its almost painful for me. I am about 99%it sure that Gellar is Travis's "harry" but if he is actually dead, why haven't the police figured that out yet?
I like the idea of LaGuerta covering for Quinn...but why? I hope that he has something on her...and something HUGE.
I am suprised that Deb hasn't slept with the new detective yet.... or ANYYONE this season! I like Deb, but she is the Show Ho...and that's just her, which makes it ok.
I gave this episode 4 stars. I love the strained relationship with Dexter and Deb, and actually Deb has become my favorite character this season. I don't know if that is because of good writing for her or lower expectations for Dexter.
I know the theory is Gellar is imaginary, but I still haven't jumped 100% on that yet. It may turn out to be true, but would Travis kill his own sister or chain himself up in the church? Or would he decide to go against his previous pattern of leaving numbers? Perhaps, but I would just need some of those loose ends to be connected to be fully on board.
I couldn't agree more with this review. It seems that FINALLY things are starting to pick up, although I'm not sure with 4 or 5 episodes left that it could save the season. This season is just completely weird to me.
Tyler - that's a great observation! I definitely missed that and naturally assumed LaGuerta was talking to the Deputy Chief, but Quinn makes a lot of sense!
Hopefully since Dexter has been picked up for 2 more seasons, they will have time to redeem themselves from this one! Dexter used to be my favorite show on tv, but now when Sunday comes around every week I can't wait to watch Homeland which is on right after Dexter! Haha! Has anyone been watching that? Incredible!
@Alex Roggio: But Dexter works with the police all the time on cases. He doesn't go rogue all the time or else he'd never have actually lasted this long on the job.
As I keep saying, the main examples from past seasons involve some kind of personal connection - Ice Truck Killer was taunting him with a game, Jordan Chase had the Lumen connection, Dexter wanted to learn from Trinity - but that's been the complete opposite here. Dexter has been taken with Sam and religion and hasn't cared one iota about DDK. It's not consistent with his Code or history for him to be keeping this one all to himself.
Pretty Sure LaGuerta was protecting Quinn. They made sure to bring up he wasn't at the crime scene and to give us a scene of him hitting on some stripper... It wouldn't make sense for her to protect the Deputy Chief... (LaGuerta is the captain now)
may be unpopular opinion but I really didn't like this season until tonight's episode. I didn't understand where it was going/it was kind of all over the place but now I'm convinced that it's all leading up to Deb finding out about Dexter..especially after the blow out between them tonight
It's not shock value when it's been obvious from the start. The fact is, I would be incredibly shocked if Gellar wasn't a figment of his imagination. I don't understand how you haven't accepted it yet. I don't have to list evidence for you considering EVERY SINGLE APPEARANCE of his on the show is evidence. Asking me for evidence that Gellar is imaginary isI like asking me for evidence that Dexter is a serial killer.
Anyway, I enjoyed the episode, but I want to point out that the only reason Dexter is working against the police is because he wants to kill Gellar for himself. He did it with the Ice Truck Killer, with the Skinner, with Jordan Chase and with the Trinity Killer. And with many many many other killers that weren't the main focus of the season. Dexter just wants to kill. Let him be.
Masuka's intern has an interest in Dexter - remember, he's developing a video game about Miami Metro and he already is gaga over Dexter's work...he created Elliot Search Engine in order to track Dexter's searches. Eventually, he'll catch on and follow-up or whatever and find out Dex is a killer
