Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

Well a certain other Dexter-related thread got locked, but I was gonna say, "Speaking of things that need to rest..."

This season sure picked up after a slow start. Though I'm not sure why they think family dentist died from gunshot wounds when Dexter snapped his neck.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

This was the first episode this season that really got my heart pounding. I dislike some of the ambiguity near the end though. Had Dex/Lumen already cleaned up and left Alex Tilden's place by the time Deb/Quinn got there? I assume once they found the fresh footprint in the grass they would have followed the trail. Or did they set up the killroom somewhere completely away from the house?

Also, really convenient to get Harrison out of the picture....that's the most cooperative nanny I've ever seen.

Nice to finally get some background on Jordan and his crew - makes them a little bit less two-dimensional as villains, which was sorely needed. Stockholm Syndrome Lady was creepy. Overall I'm still enjoying this more than season 3, and am still unsure how it's going to play out, which is a good thing.

^ The kill room was next door in the empty house.

^ Thanks. I was trying to figure out the geography. I just missed a line of dialogue I guess.

There was no line of dialog. When Deb and Quinn went into the room that Lumen recommended, there was an exterior shot of the house that panned left to reveal an empty house for sale next door.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

Just caught the episode. I guessed early on that they were setting up false suspense over the kill room. Of course, my roommate had to chime in and remind me that, back in season one, Dexter did his killing in remote places, if possible. That in mind, I see no reason why they didn't just take Alex whats-his-name far away from there, just to be safe (the answer is, of course, that the writers wanted to set up some false suspense).

I'm not sure how I feel about turning Dexter/Lumen into a romantic entanglement. The writers will have to do more work to differentiate it from Dexter/Lila if they want to do something with it. Lumen is more stable, at least, but I keep getting the impression that the writers are waiting for another shoe to drop when it comes to her character. After seven or eight episodes, we still don't know a whole lot about her.

And, it certainly looks like Manny Coto has something about abusing Peter Weller on his shows. His character is definitely toast by the end of the season.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

Honestly, the Lumen thing imo only works if Julia Stiles is staying on next season, or possibly, she "opts out" of killing once Jordan Chase is iced.

It's incredibly contrived for her to die, or take the fall for Dexter. I really feel like for this story to mean something, it can't just be another Lila or Rita storyline.

^ Yeah I'd like it if Lumen was done with killing once Jordan is dead. I do hope she sticks around though.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

This season has been very uneven but is still pretty good. Quinn's motivation is all over the place. Dexter is being extremely uncautious and there are apparently no consequences for this (yet). Harry appears randomly, but that's better than having him in every episode I suppose. Like Temis I was expecting them to drive Dexter's character off the rails this season which is something they have not done before, but instead we've gotten another apprentice type storyline like we had in season 3, which is OK too I guess. Fairly ambivalent at this point but hoping that something interesting will happen in the next two episodes.

I wonder if you could say that it's the writers who are careless and Dexter should be as good as he's always been.

Re: DEXTER Season 5 Discussion & Spoilers

Before this ep, I was of the opinion that Dexter and Lumen's relationship should remain non-sexual. But then that hotness at the end happened and I found myself ok with it.

I felt kind of the same way. But when it happened, it felt sort of natural, in a way Dexter and Rita never did. My only concern was I don't know if Lumen would be so open to physical intimacy with a man after what she's been through....

Maybe this show will turn into Crash (not the Don Cheadle racism movie, the James Spader "car crashes make me horny" movie) where in order to ignite the passion, Lumen and Dexter have to kill someone beforehand.
