Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

I am wondering if Quinn will actually find out his secret but won't turn Dexter in.

Quinn either becomes an ally or he dies. He wouldn't continue to be clueless this late in the game.

Deb could kill him to protect Dexter. Lumen too. RoboCop could get into a dispute with Quinn and they kill each other which would also ensure Dexter's secret. Or maybe Lumen and Quinn kill each other.

Or we find out Captain Matthews has known all along and protects Dexter.

I really hope it's not the third option, that would be way too contrived. And I'd rather Lumen not be involved either - that would just be a repeat of Lila and Doakes. If Quinn's gonna die, it has to either be at the hands of Dex or Deb to really mean anything.

I can't see Quinn becoming an 'ally' per se. The only plausible way I can see him learning Dex's secret but keeping it quiet is if this relationship between him and Deb really takes off, and he stays quiet to protect her. But I hope that's not the case either - it's a bit too mushy.

I'd still like to see Lumen survive the season and move on with her life. I expect things will get crazy before it gets to that point though. Can't believe there's only 4 episodes left - it feels like we're only halfway at most. Too much filler in the first half of the season perhaps?

EDIT: Also, am I just not paying attention, or is this two weeks in a row now with no James Remar/Harry?

I think it was three weeks without Harry. Without the flashbacks, Harry is basically just Dexter talking to himself.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

Well, in the books, Deb has known since the end of the FIRST book, and lets it slide as Dexter is sort of a personal "get rid of the really bad guys" crusader, and LaGuerta has been dead since that book's end.

Maybe this season will end with THAT development.

Wouldn't say that I'd miss LaGuerta.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

^I doubt they'd kill the only other regular female cast member besides Deb though. She helps maintain a little bit of balance in that regard. I'd rather they kill off Angel before LaGuerta, to be honest.

I haven't seen the latest episode, but maybe they're going to swap LaGuerta for the female officer that has been helping out Deb this season?

Good episode, best of the season, best episode since he went after Boyd Fowler. I'm noticing that this season really comes into focus when Dexter has someone to stalk. I guess that's probably true of the series as a whole.

Deb knows in the books? I skipped the first one, but I don't remember any mention of it in subsequent books. I guess I'm going to have to go back and read that one. I was under the impression that the first season of the show followed the first book closely, then kind of went in another direction after that.

Yeah, the first book is rather good. After that, the series got really weird -- right down to the whole Moloch thing. (The "Dark Passenger" is a demonic possession? REALLY?)

The end of the first book was somewhat radically changed.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

That was a great ep, not a single fault with I could see. And I totally believed Lumen ("stupid name" ) and Dexter's relationship this week. I was there with Dex anxiously wondering how she'd react to getting to know him.

Then that ending, blew me away.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

I can see this happening: Weller's character wants to out Dexter but Quinn doesn't want to due to his relationship with Deb. He tries to stop Weller and Weller shoots him. Quinn manages to call Deb or she finds him before he dies and he warns her about Weller and reveals Dexter's secret so Deb goes after Weller to try to stop him or she goes to warn Dexter.
