I thought this season was pretty good, probably about on par with Season 3, which was the previous worst "good" season. I wish they hadn't left that thread dangling with intern-guy-whose-name-I-still-don't-know. I was confused by the ending because I thought Deb had told Dexter to go do a sweep of the HOUSE where they found Travis's last painting not the chuch so I was confused why she had shown up there. I guess I was wrong though and she had said the church, which doesn't make a lot of sense in the context of the storyline, and seems pretty careless of Dexter to use as his kill site (but then, his judgment has been pretty off for a few seasons now). Ugh. Anyway, despite that last bit of bad writing, I thought it was a pretty good season and not as gratingly stupid as the 5th one.
