Probably short term. I'd guess he'll be around until the season finale.

Re: Dexter

It's true.

It's so true.

After that movie about human soap, I'm always expecting that to happen.

I've had a theory about the Doomsday Killer for a couple of episodes now that is starting to feel more likely with each episode. I'll put it in spoiler code, since I'm almost certain I'm right.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

I clicked it because I didn't think any theory could be so ironclad that it would really count as a spoiler, but damn I think you're right.

Re: Dexter

bah, probably right. I was expecting a silly theory. Though I wonder if the writing on Dexter is really good enough anymore to pull something like that off.

A quick Google search seems to suggest this is a very popular theory, though. Hmm.

Re: Dexter

Yeah, that theory already popped up after the first episode of this season.
And I honestly don't know why they're still making a secret out of it. It's obvious, really.

Re: Dexter

Well Dexter does it, so why not Doomsday?

Every year he''s looking for his equal and opposite, but only usually finds one or the other.



I don't see why we're calling this a theory?

It is what is happening, and it will surprise children and idiots who watch very little media, but that's not us. most of us. Some of us. Well, you know who you are.

i have another theory...

I think Rita died a few seasons back.

Have you noticed that if you die on Dexter, and you're a gal, that you wind up with a supporting role on The Gifted Man?

Re: Dexter

I don't see why someone would be an idiot for not catching on. It's not like any of the clues have been blatant. They're there, but we're not getting hit over the head with them. If we were, we'd suspect it was a red herring.

The showrunner said in an interview that the actor was only available for a couple episodes, because he's busy directing a movie.

Apparently the writers have been wanting to bring him back for a while, but this is the first time the schedule worked out.

Seems a little TOO obvious to me. Although if it's true, I hope they reveal it soon, instead of waiting til the final episode to reveal something most of the audience already guessed.

Idiot may be too strong.

But if you haven't noticed, then you're only as smart as the writers think you are.

It was a sad day from me, when I was finally too old to achieve any satisfaction from watching Sesame Street. I had to pack up my stuff and find a more challenging medium to obsess on than Cookie eating puppets.

Worst 30th birthday ever.

Re: Dexter

Best episode in a long time, at least since the 4th season finale. I just wish Rudy stuck around longer...

Re: Dexter

Spiff's theory all but confirmed this episode I think based on the girl's story

I was sad to see Rudy gone so fast, I thought it was gonna be a season long thing with him and his dad as the angel and devil on opposite shoulders. On the other hand I was alarmed where it was taking him so I'm glad he's back on the... er.. righteous path

By the way, anyone else notice this?

Re: Dexter

I'm lost. I thought Rudy's presence was going to be something that changes the dynamic of Dexter forever according to an article I read hinting about Rudy's return. So WTF?

I'm 100% sure that the spoiler about the professor is real now.

Re: Dexter

Remember when Jesus was fasting in the desert and the devil turned up and turned a bunch of stones into piping hot loaves to tempt our Savior, and Jesus leveled i suppose what passes for him as a threat... "Don't test me."

Dexter had to chose between right and wrong.

To prove to himself that he was a good person.

A crucible.

A crisis.
