This had me rolling in stitches. If the episode has any weakness it's that you already have to be familiar with the setting and especially the characters to fully appreciate it.
I think you summed things up well. I have no preference to how much A.J. we see in each episode, so long as the story doesn't suffer. In this episode, A.J. was not that much of an asset other than something to keep the other characters involved.
I predicted way back in season two that the show would end with Dexter dying and his sister avenging him and taking over the vigilante business, complete with Dexter talking to her in her mind the same way that Harry talks to Dexter in his mind. Now with Dexter loosening his code, falling for a questionable woman, becoming a less involved father and stepfather... perhaps the show is starting to try to make him increasingly unlikeable so when the time comes to finally kill off the show's titular character we won't be quite so shocked. Just my two cents.
