Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

Speaking of Vince, I would have expected more hestitation on his part against "ratting out" Dexter as the jealous husband to Quinn, who Vince should realize isn't Dexter's friend and is not the right person to confide in.

Vince is essentially saying he thinks Dex murdered Rita; that isn't something you just babble randomly. If Vince really thinks that, he needs to go to LaGuerta. If he isn't willing to do that, he should have the sense to stfu. Starting a rumor that he isn't willing to follow through on, about someone who's always been his friend, seems to be too pointlessly malicious to fit Vince's persona.

I know it was a plot convenience, but the writers should have made more of an effort to create a plausible scenario: Vince lets Deb in on his suspicions, Deb of course shoots it down, Quinn overhears; Vince is drunk; or some other mitigating factor.

I don't remember him killing the pedophile. Didn't he just run him off?

Anyway, I'm already very much enjoying this season. The only thing that sort of bugged me was when Debra said that Trinity leaves no traces behind. Was she not privy to the fact that they discovered the cremation ash at all the scenes? I mean it wouldn't be at Rita's murder scene, as it's all gone now, but the statement still bugged me

I don't think he was saying that. I think he was feeling partly responsible for causing some unhappiness in their marriage, right before Rita ends up murdered.

Nope. Dexter definitely killed him.

Was the funeral home scene supposed to be some Six Feet Under joke? :P
That's how I took it too, in fact I was expecting it as soon as Debra talked about meeting with a Funeral Director. And I thought it was especially obvous considering Bill Brochtrup, who like Michael C Hall in Six Feet Under, played a gay character in NYPD Blue, was kind of channeling David Fisher ! It was fun !

Nice start to the 5th season, I just hope Quinn doesn't turn into Doakes 2.0...

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

Really enjoyed the season premiere.

What bugged me though, was how everyone was up Dexters ass for not grieving the way they thought he should.

Personally, I found his reaction absolutely normal.
Different people grieve differently. Some cry, some don't.
Last November, me and my mother found my grandmother dead in her house.
For the next few days, I was walking around in a state of shocked numbness, barely noticing what was going on around me, just like Dexter did here.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

^Yeah, that's what I said myself. Dexter's emotional reactions are far more normal that he will admit, and he thinks there's something wrong with them when in fact they're pretty normal a good deal of the time and especially here.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

I'm hoping the "Dexter as the prime suspect" doesn't get dragged out too long. Obviously for the sake of this show continuing they'll eventually drop it, but I think they should drop it sooner than we'd expect... and have the fallout of Dexter's friends suspecting him affect the rest of the season.

Of course, they completely ignored the whole part about Trinity leaving dead family member cremated ash at the killing site.

I suspect some traffic camera or ATM camera nearby will have caught Trinity driving toward the house, and that will be enough to get Dexter off the hook.

Wasn't that only at those killing sites where he had killed fathers?

Yeah, I've found that throughout the whole show, Dexter has been a lot more "normal" in an emotional sense than he likes to think of himself. And I certainly think the way he reacted to Rita's death is well within the range of reactions that most people would have—well, randomly clubbing someone to death aside, at least.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

No surprise that they got Astor and Cody out of the picture right away. It certainly makes it easier for Dexter to go out and kill. But what of Harrison? Does he take him along? that would be creepy. The LaGuerta and Batista stuff drags again this week. Can't they give them something better to do?

Well it looks Dexter was never a suspect in Rita's murder, which was pretty easily taken care of. But I wonder where they're going with Quinn. Does Dexter need another crazy ex to blow Quinn up for him?

I just hope that whatever they plan for Quinn that they just don't do a repeat of the Doakes plot.
