i thought the scene in dexter's apartment with deb and quinn was pretty good

how did dexter manage to get brunner out of the pedo camp without anyone noticing? i guess he's supposed to have pulled his car up and loaded him into the trunk? or is all that just acceptable behavior amongst that group? either way seemed pretty absurd

So they get out of prison and they're not really out at all.

Episode was still ridiculous obviously.

I heard there was a deleted scene, some guy said "HEy man what are u doing?!?!" Dexter replied "What does it look like?" And winked at him. Guy nods and smirks at Dexter.

Total, utter crap this week. I think it's best if we pretend that this episode never happened.

Seen as i pretty much fell asleep halfway through this episode despite watching it at 11am, can somebody explain to me what the sting was about and how it related to Robocop being suspended? Looked like it was already over when Batista burst in.

the IA guy said it was related to a narcotics case. i don't think we know the whole story.

Christopher Henderson has been enlisted to take down Dexter Morgan. Sweet.

I just feel like there isn't much left to be told with the story besides Dex getting caught. Until then it will just get more and more unrealistic.

Pretty much this. The concept of the show can't credibly be extended for as many seasons as it already has been. Dexter would either be constantly on the run or on death row or dead by now. The only real chance at a stable existence would be to stop with the vigilante killings but that's what defines his character. So either he's a comic book superhero (which is the only way he never gets caught), or everything comes crashing down pretty quickly. Him having a steady job and raising a kid doesn't make much sense. And especially with as sloppy as he's getting. At least he used to be meticulous which gave the story some credibility. It's become a complete joke now.

this.

Also, I really feel llike they're getting lazy and unrealistic compared to past seasons. A couple years ago they would've made it clear that Dexter needed an ideal time to kidnap the sex offender, it would've taken some preparing, etc. This year they just zoom in and Dexter kidnaps the guy... like wtf, there's people around...

It's getting really hard for me to like this show knowing it has writers/directors that went along with this whole Angel and Laguerta storyline.

While reading Wikipedia for something Dexter related, i got to reading the plot lines for some of the dexter books and was surprised by how much they deviate from the tv show. A lot more unrealistic, but there was definitely some interesting directions they could have taken the show in.

definitely not trying to defend the lazy writing but i think the explanation here would be...2-3 eps ago he was on leave so it would cause suspicion being in the lab needing a finger print. now that he's back to work it's not out of the ordinary.

Does anyone have even the remotest interest in the "omg Harrison saw his mom murdered just like me!!!11" storyline? I'm already sick of him and it's been like 4 episodes. The "OMG HE'S SCRATCHING PEOPLE!!!" subplot is the stupidest thing ever and given how long the craptastic Angel/LaGuerta storyline has gone on I can only see this digging itself deeper and deeper.
10-25-2010 , 03:59 PM
Yeah I'm enjoying Weeds more than Dexter this season and that's pretty depressing. Does anyone really think Quinn is a threat? I think it's obv that they're gonna have Deb be the one to catch Dexter if it's ever gonna happen.

I hope the writers turn Dexter into a full-fledged psychopath before he eventually gets caught though. I think that'd make for some good popcorn tv.
10-25-2010 , 04:04 PM
It's not just the scratching people. This young psychopath has also been seen pulling the head off a doll. Dexter will be faced with a terrible dilemma in the near future: Let Harrison live, or eliminate him for the good of Miami.
10-25-2010 , 04:25 PM
the harrison stuff is terrible...and the scene where he scratched dexter was so corny...the problem is that its a storyline that can't really develop unless they do some huge leap forward in time to when the kid is 7 or something. Its not like 18month old harrison is gonna start killing animals and murdering people...
10-25-2010 , 04:37 PM
im holding out hope harrison murders his nanny
10-25-2010 , 04:42 PM
He'll make it look like an accident too. Kid's got style.
10-25-2010 , 05:31 PM
Meh, I liked it. It may fight 3 for worse season but you guys are way too harsh in the criticism.

Just out of curiosity, what part(s) did you like? I just finished watching the episode two minutes ago, and I can't remember a single important thing that happened. I mean, if you listed the main plots from this episode, Harrison scratching people would be 3rd or 4th on the list.

(Masuka was in fine form as usual, though, and I enjoyed the chicks stripping down to their underwear just to get a tramp stamp.)
10-25-2010 , 06:26 PM
tramp stamp part ainec
10-25-2010 , 06:37 PM
i thought quinn's forced time off and robocop bar deal was okay.

I honestly didnt hate any scene and it progressed every single part of the season long stories.

I can understand it if people go in wanting fast paced action and a murder/ep ratio that is extremely high but people are missing a lot of the subtlety.

Like how someone was annoyed that Dexter told Lumen his name, when it is clear that one of the big stories in the season (and the previous one) is he is taking so many more risks and exposing himself.

Important things:
1, Dexter made three more major mistakes exposing himself (the name given to Lumen, his face shown to the rapist, almost killing the wrong guy who was electronically tagged and potentially having cops bust in on him mid murder)
2, Quinn hired the other dirty cop who was probably his old partner who will follow up on Dexter
3, Deb moves closer to catching the machete brothers
4, we learn where the MO for the rape cutting came from, if we didnt directly move towards that group yet
5, Lumens character development beyond the damsel in distress

Again, i get why people wouldnt like it if they want faster pace action and more murder - but right now Dexter is on the trail of like half a dozen people, potentially two more if he takes down the brothers too, maybe a third in the dirty cop, maybe Quinn too and whilst it can seem like filler it actually progressed the story along.

Btw my theory on the dirty cop ending up on the table is related to Quinn and the IA chick from season 3 where she claimed he is dirty and responsible for someone's death. If dirty cop dude was his old partner and that is how they knew each other and if they are both dirty which it looks like then there is a potential avenue to go down on that.
