Well, I thought his whole, um, release, shall we say, with Rita, was fascinating, and how he processed it in therapy, and how utterly surprised he was to learn that what he thought was a loss of control was actually something wonderful and normal. Meanwhile his sister had a similar release and we learned that the two people closest to her are of the same ilk. A bit far-fetched but hey, it's Showtime! Why did you think it was lame?

I've never really liked the actress that plays Dexter's sister. It's nice to see that she's as fucked up as Dex but... MEH.


I also think that the therapy sessions were an unecessary storyline; Dexter's not supposed to have feelings!

Sunday night's episode wasn't lame at all, gottage. I do love your weak argument though . I can't stand Dexter's sister either, but the scenes with Dexter were really intriguing to me; everything that joyfulgirl said, basically

Whaaaat? But that was the beauty of it. He does have emotions. He doesn't recognize the feeling because he's been repressing emotions all of his life. I just don't buy that he's 100% emotionless.

Speaking of which, am I alone in thinking that Dexter's feelings for Rita's children aren't fabricated? Plus he seems a bit envious of Rita's husband being an active part of their lives again. I don't know, maybe he really is doing a good job at faking his interactions with them, but I'd like to believe he genuinely cares for the kids.

Anyway, I wish we could've seen more of the memory Dexter had as a young child in his therapy session. The quick glimpse of what was presumably a young 3 or 4 year old Dexter in tears next to a bloody corpse was incredibly creepy. I hope they explore that in some way. I bet it's connected into what made him the person he is today.

And I KNEW that Perry gained all that information on the ice truck killer by hacking into the police station's computers. I immediately suspected it last week when they gave a lowdown of his profile and mentioned his computer thing. And it was only confirmed when he told LaGuerta about the circumstances of her promotion. But still, the scene with LaGuerta turning the books on him with the decapitated head was great.

And yeeeah, we all knew that the doctor would be the ice truck killer, but the ending to the episode was perfect. The ad response was just awesome.

PS I miss the salsa music they used to heavily use on this show


Jeez, this ended up being a longer post than I was anticipating.

Quit making fun of my writing skillz.

I bet they won't show the traumatic event thing until the end of the season

HAHAHAHA. Genius!


But don't you miss the salsa music or the constant use of Spanglish?

Every episode has not being gorey which is why I've stayed with it. Recent episodes have been more psychological, with the violence more suggested than shown. I'm about to lose Showtime, though, so I guess I'll have to wait for netflix to see how this all ends up.
