Jeez, didn't think it was possible but this episode was even more sluggish and lacking in urgency than the last one. And does anybody seriously want to watch Dexter train this kid in using the Code? Or watch a developing romance between Deb and the PI guy? I mean, really??
It's just baffling to me that the writers continue to focus on these storylines during the final year.
Thankfully there were enough funny lines to keep this episode watchable (loved Dexter's line about the bloody teddy bear, his inability to talk about what he does with his boat, and Debra's "Sorry, cow"). And it looks like the pace might be finally picking up a bit with the return of Hannah.... but still, I'm not going to get my hopes up.
