If this was a cheerleading movie, I would sassily assert that Dexter definitely knows how to 'bring it' in their finales.
Deb: "What they're doing takes devotion....He's putting everything on the line to make what happened to her right.
Dexter: "She keeps connecting the dots. Cole, Boyd, now Dr. Dan. It's only a matter of time before she connects them to me. And to Lumen."
Despite Dexter's head start when it comes to the Barrel Girls case, Deb's is playing rapid catch up with her impressive deductive skills and is now only one step behind.
Wow – what an episode! Jordan Chase amps up his creep factor, Lumen finally meets the family and Astor returns to do her best Taylor Momsen impression.
Because of Laguerta's underhanded stunt, Deb is relegated to filing duty. However, whenever Deb hangs out with the sassy filing lady, boy talk and uncovered secrets are in abundance.
Dexter went primal this week and absolutely delivered. It's an electrifying episode effectively broken up with compelling moments of reflection between the characters.
Dexter: "Sometimes partners find us, and as much as we try to push them away, they work their way into our lives, regardless - until we finally realize how much we need them."
If there is one life lesson I learned this week, it is that motivational speakers are shady people.
Deb to Quinn: "If this is going to end badly, will you please just tell me now?"
After last week's lack lustre episode, Dexter makes some headway in "Everything Is Illumenated". Batista finds his cojones and works his charm on a young thang at Club Mayan.
Harry's Code has never been explicitly outlined for us, but we get the gist:
But when those two commandments are in conflict, what is a serial killer to do?
Last week's kill, leaves Dexter in that exact predicament: he unknowingly goes to town with Boyd Fowler in front of a
Deb/Oprah: "When you lose someone close, routine can be the ladder to help you climb back into normalcy."
In "Practically Perfect" Dexter (the show and person alike) seem to have gotten their groove back.
Dexter: "It's like when you get on a plane, they tell you if the oxygen masks come down, to put yours on first before taking care of the kids. I need to take care of my own needs, too. Otherwise, I'll be spinning out of control. That's not good for anyone."
Falling back into routine after a tragedy is always a struggle.
