Was the reviewer watching Seinfeld instead of Breaking Bad? That was as dark as television gets. There were no hilarious moments in this episode.
We already know from the flash forward that Walt survives this and isn't locked up. So Hank and Gomez are killed. Only suspense is whether Jesse lives. No point for the absurd shootout and cliffhanger. Hank on the phone to Marie... "It may be awhile before I get home." Translation - I'm about to die.
So Dex and Deb could hear Vogel and Yates on the phone but not the other way around? Who writes this crap?
Have to say that a once promising season has quickly fallen apart with the last 3 episodes. Seems like the writers are just throwing a bunch of crap against the wall and hoping it sticks. Many of these storylines are uninteresting, insignificant, or both -- the arson killer and Hannah's dad popping up out of nowhere, Quinn vs the Russian mob, Batista opening a restaurant, etc. And what about Deb being in love with Dex? Was that pushed under the rug again? But perhaps the strangest turn was Aster and Cody showing up out of the blue a few episodes back. What was the point of that? Hopefully the last 2 episodes end the season on a high note, but I'm not optimistic at this point. I am, however, intrigued by the return of Capt. Matthews. He seemed very protective of Dexter when Laugerta was piling up the evidence that points to Dex as the Bay Harbor butcher. And now Matthews requested to be the one to informally question Dexter about Laguerta's suspicions. Perhaps Matthews already knows Dexter is a serial killer? Maybe it was his idea, not Harry's, to turn Dex into what he's become?
