Great episode. I can't wait to see how the rest of the season plays out. Will LaGuerta go the way of Doakes?
Well, at least they wouldn't have to try to write for her anymore.

At least they're giving her something to do other than being a total bitch/insufferable pain in the ass that she has been the past 2 seasons. She should've been killed off a couple of seasons back because she's been next to useless the past 2.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Really good episode. I'll go so far as to say that it was better than virtually any episode in S5 or 6. It felt fresh, with a genuine 'WTF happens now' feeling to it. Felt like a S2 episode, where twists to the show felt like they could seriously effect Dexter's life (rather than the "running in place" feel of S3, 5-6).

I'm glad they didn't draw out Deb discovering the tools/blood slides. It made sense that as soon as she realized something was genuinely wrong long-term with Dex, she went straight for his apartment and did a real search. She's a veteran cop, it *should* be that easy for her if she's focused.

Frankly though it also showed that S6 was basically a waste. They should have just had Deb find out about him helping Lumen. Her sitting on his kill would have more credibility that way.

in the books doesn't she get killed by Dexter in the very first book? i've got my fingers crossed the writers refer back to the source material for some ideas

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Great episode, ranking right up there with episodes from the better seasons.

I think Deb is going to be on the fence about turning in Dex for a while until a particularly brutal case comes up that Miami Metro can't close despite knowing who the killer is, and Deb, in a moment of weakness and desperation, turns to Dexter to resolve the situation his way. After that, she'll be hooked into being his keeper for the most of the rest of the season and possibly into the next.

I'm hoping Dexter's revelation is enough to put Deb off of her infatuation with him, but the fact that they included it in the "previously on..." recap makes me think it might be revisited. I hope not, since they've got a perfect excuse for her not to be attracted to him any more (which was gross enough to begin with).

Dexter's tracking and killing of Mike's mob enforcer murderer was given short shrift from the usual pattern of stalking, extensive prep, and Dex giving a speech to the killer, but I guess that's understandable given how jam packed this episode was. I just hope the sloppy fingerprint grab and airport killing don't become the norm for how they depict Dexter's kills this season with all the other stuff going on.

Yep. People raised as siblings, even if not related by blood, are normally not attracted to each other.

Didn't they allude to the fact that Harry might in fact be Dexter's real father? Something about sleeping with his informant who was Dexter's mother?

Harry was sleeping with the mother, but Dexter later (earlier?)confirmed that the bloke with the spider-web tattoo's DNA, who willed him that house, was from his biological pappy.

Ah, thanks. I'm glad. That would have made Deb's infatuation all the more creepy.

Never got the appeal of the show. I wanted that Dexter guy to be caught and executed after the episodes I saw. "But he only kills other serial killers". A show about a serial rapist raping other serial rapists wouldn't be taken that well, I suppose.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0490086/

That's from a movie calledBbig Stan where Rob Schnider becomes so bad ass that when he goes to prison, that Rob becomes top dog and declares what the rules are like he's Jesus preaching his sermon on the mount ...

Rob Shnieder: "All right all right.. We have to start acting civilized in here. No more shanking each other in the showers. No more stealing from each other and for gods sake can we please stop raping each other, it's embarrassing, and hard to sleep through in the night."

Random prisoner with mexican accent "but boss, what about if we just rape the child molesters?"

Rob Schinder: "Okay, okay, I suppose that's alright, they sorta have it coming. All right. New rule you can can only ony rape the kiddy fiddlers. Is everyone good with that?"

Hundreds of prisoners cheering.

Rob Schinder: "No, No, sorry. I can't bring myself to.. It would just be picking on the child molestors. So, no, no raping anyone. If you want to have sex, you will have to find someone who loves you for who you are. Good? Good!"

Hundreds of prisoners says "awwwwwwwwwwwwwee."

Well Carpenter seemed to suggest in an interview that they were dropping the idea... but the showrunners are still saying that we WILL see it explored in some way.

So who knows at this point.

They'll probably explore it by having Deb realize how weird it is.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

Deb needs to abuse and accost that therapist with a lot of oddly compounded swear neologisms.

Besides I was 80 percent sure her therapist was a Phantom last year.

Re: Dexter - Season 7 (with Spoilers)

I gave up on Dexter years ago. But quite aside from the previous Deborah character was a daddy's girl who thought Daddy was an upright cop, any version of Deborah extant should be able to see more objectively than Dexter. Meaning, she would realize Daddy was actually crazier than a bedbug, guilty of a horrendously unique form of child abuse. Having her realize this is far less interesting or significant than having Dexter learn it for himself. But the newest Deborah should at least develop a terrible case of survivor's guilt over having survived Psycho Daddy.

It occurs to me that Psycho Daddy is awkwardly long. I suggest he be dubbed Zeus, since he gave birth to Deborah sans female. There was the occasional woman in the odd flashback, but she was obviously just a prop.
