Dexter > Dexter Review: Are You a Serial Killer? > Comments Page 2
Gotta wonder what's going on with Louis, is he going to become a much bigger character? How much does he already know about Dexter? Given his computer skills and overall creapiness/obcession with Dexter, he seems like a guy who could cause some serious problems.
felt very much like the 1st couple seasons of Dexter. loved the
flashbacks,no overly stupid Quinn & Batista! very satisfied with how
it started,just hope they keep it it up!! i also loved how
they got rid of Mike quick b/c we knew he was gonna die 2 be on "Sons"
& how they didn't drag out Deb finding out all of it for 6 or 7
episodes. very well done!!!
@joseph...great line here:
"I'm really looking forward to seeing the new dynamic develop from this point and how the Dark Passenger can continue on when he's now in the spotlight."
Well put my man.
So what was the deal with the bracelet Viktor the Ukranian took off the dead stripper and put on his own arm? They made a point of showing it again when Dexter was getting rid of his body. Dexter using the surf board bag in lieu of his usual glad bag method might come back to wipe him out I think. There definitelyt is some significance to that piece of jewelry.
@miranderwicker, I thought the same exact thing about the airport and Matt you toally nailed the episode when you noted how tension filled it was. I think for me the hardest thing to get over was that I have become so accustomed to Dexter's, Stab Rinse Repeat, that to see him make so many mistakes was unnerving. The blood slide, that is his treasure, his trophy. The thing serial killers covet. How does he forget about it. The plastic in the toe. How does he miss that let alone how it even made it through the fire. All these things tied in with Miranda's comment about the airport cameras left me a little frustrated but the confession scene more than made up for it. I was like "this has to be a dream," it was so unreal.
It was a good opening for season7. It was about time to show Dexter side that we grown to love all these years. I just hope that Deb don't give him up or turn him into the police until she understands what he's all about. He can do both and can be a father at the same time. I love how they brought him back as a tracker and how he's ready for any situation. love it and plan on watching more of Dexter.
No way Laguerta keeps the blood slide secret, as much of a ladder climber as she is she never ever believed Doakes was the BHB. Now that she has that slide she's not going to let it go until she clears his name.
I loved the episode but it drove me nuts how long it took for the BHB to come up. And Deb never brought it up at all. Didn't they find the knives when they were investigating BHB? And Deb saw Dexter's whole set in the church, the same one. Also, agree with all the questions about the airport kill. Diabetics don't use needles that huge and I think he would have to show a script anyway. Definitely cameras all over the place, too.
One last thing, what is the deal with Masuka's assistant? And what was the point of canceling Dex's cc's?
After 60 perfect episodes.....last season was a BOMB.....and already , i am very annoyed with Deb et al.....going after Dexter......
Where is Lithgoe when we need him !!!!!!
I think the reason for the airport kill was to set up the opening scene of tricking the audience into thinking Dexter was running from the law. He was driving in a hurry, his credit cards got declined, and it looked like he was fleeing the country. It added another layer of suspense and mystery at the start of the episode.
I agree with Miranda. The airport kill silly; I agree, no cameras??! Or are there and we find out about it later?? Perhaps sloppy. Otherwise, absolutely terrific.
When Laguerta asked Masuka who takes blood slides he said the only person who did was Sergeant Doakes, who was convicted as the Bay Harbor butcher and is now dead. That case was done and dusted with a huge serial killer put away. Not to mention the serial killer happened to be a cop. All this happened under Laguerta's run as Lieutenant. If we know anything about Laguerta she is nothing if not an ambitious career climber and the last thing she wants is to dredge up the possibility that not only may they have not caught the Bay Harbor Butcher but they may have falsely blamed a cop. I have a feeling she'll look into those slides discreetly on her own and/or make them disappear all together.
LaGuerta keeping the slide secret is logicial writer of this art for all she knows Masuka could be the killer
Great premiere! I have to agree though, the airport kill felt a bit forced.
Since the series is already renewed for another season, I really hope that this one focuses on the Dexter/Deb relationship and LaGuerta investigating more. Then in the season finale she will find out about Dexter. And in Season 8, Dexter will be on the run.
And then they should end it.
@Miranda - The fact that Dexter was killing in the middle of the Baggage Room itself was so unlike him....Silly scene in hindsight but the main storyline more than made up for it.
I hope this season is better than the last few...I like the show enough to keep watching, but I agree that the last few seasons have been sub-par. Problem with the show is the characters have no depth whatsover...if they did away with Quinn and LaGuerta, it would be a step in the right direction...what this show always does well is set up intriguing situtaions, but then never pay off that well...you are rarely surprised by anything. Deb walking in on Dexter in the middle of a kill was the only "wow" moment of the last few years...this could be really good...Dex's cat and mouse with Doaks was probably, for me, the best storyline on the show. I am guessing that the final scene last night (where Dexter walks in and Deb is confronting him with all the evidence she has) was a dream...
Good opening episode to season 7 of Dexter. I didn't mind last season, as some have pointed out it being awful. There were some good scenes and moments, and thought Colin Hanks was good. I can't comment on previous seasons, since I have only been tuned in since season 5. There were some holes/logic questions in last night's opener, and obviously you only have some much room or time to compress the story and action, but thought Deb pulling everything together in the last few minutes to have all of Dexter's weapons laid out on the coffee table seemed really contrived. We already know that the Ukraine killer and the stripper plus the high-powered men in the Ukraine will play a huge role in the new few episodes. Should be good! I'm hooked. Question may be, "will Deb an Dexter work out his Robin Hood-esque frenzy on killing the killers or have her violate her role as a detective?"
Do you know what the absolute best moment of the show was for me? When Dexter uttered the word "yes" to Deb's question and Michael C. Hall managed to show relief with his eyes. His eyebrows fluttered up just a little and there was something like freedom in his eyes. It was amazing.
(My gripe for the episode? HOW IN THE HELL is there NOT a CAMERA in the unclaimed baggage room!?!? With security in airports being what it is, HOW WAS THAT KILL EVEN POSSIBLE?)
After 60 perfect episodes , last season was a super clunker - HATED it !!!
And now I can say , having a schitzo Deb et al, in Dexter's xxxx all season , I won't stick around for another annoying clunker ....
Bring back Lithgoe !!!!
I had to pause the final scene where Deb had all of Dexter tools on display because I was in complete shock. Just as their father trained Dexter to be great killer, he equally trained Debra to be great at CATCHING killers. Sick dichotomy that had me holding my breath through that last scene. Great stuff!
a great begining to the last season. that last scene when dex walks in to find his apartment in shambles and all of his killing equipment laid to bare with deb sitting there waiting for him, her gun handy, my heart was pounding. i do disagree that previous seasons have been stale (save for when julia stiles was on), like true blood i love every episode of every season it is just written and acted so well.
why would LaGuerta be secretive about the slide instead of simply ordering Masuka to run it you ask? well did you hear what he told her? the only person to ever use blood slides was a member of the miami pd who turned out to be a serial killer. taking that into consideration she can't trust anyone and as freaky as Masuka is, he would be a prime suspect.
If you think about it, LaGuerta keeping the slide a secret is logical. She has never beleived that Doakes was the Bay Harbor Butcher, so when she sees that slide, she probably concludes that the BHB has become active again. Since it is known that the Butcher was a member of Miami Homicide, it would make sense to have the slides processed outside of the department to prevent the Butcher from catching word of it.
Tyler, It's a glass slide that reflects sunlight. She noticed it because the sun was shining into the burned church, reflecting off the glass and into Laguerta's eyes.
Great start. Nothing beats the death of Rita for me, but there have been some episodes which come close. Notably, Dexter connecting with Julia Stiles' character Lumen Pierce, over their first combined kill. The Ice Truck Killer from the first season was fiendishly fantastic in how he sent all those signals to talk straight to Dexter. The hand: Dexter's mom, the roomful of blood: where the Dark passenger was born, even the brother's final test for Dexter: to kill Deb together was an homage to what Dexter already does. There have truly been some epic scenes and the entire Dexter writing staff should be really proud of their accomplishments. I'm really looking forward to seeing the new dynamic develop from this point and how the Dark Passenger can continue on when he's now in the spotlight.
Deb called Dexter's apartment because she wanted to verify if he was there or not. If she called, he answered, it might have dulled some of her investigative zeal. She KNEW that if she called the cell phone, he would have spun some BS story.
As for how LaGuerta found the slide, from her perspective, you could see the shine of the glass through the grate.
So can anyone tell me exactly how LaGuerta found the slide?
It seemed like she just sensed it or something.
I think LaGuerta was shady about the slide because it implies that a person of significant experience and habit (i.e. one of Miami Metro's finest) participated in Travis's demise. Then, when Masuka helps link this case to the Bay Harbor Butcher (he references Doakes taking blood slides), LaGuerta recalls the evidence that the BHB had to have been a member of Miami Metro...now, however, she realizes it wasn't Doakes. She correctly suspects that the BHB is not only behind Travis's death, but alive and well as an employee in her precinct. Or maybe she's a dumb ho who forgot about the federal charges linked to evidence tampering and obstruction of justice. Probably just a dumb ho.
