Lumen needs to die. Plain and simple. I was literally shitting bricks the entire warehouse scene. Oh wait, I mean figuratively. Another O heavy episode of "Dexter" this week that really kept me on the edge of my seat and had me legit talking to the TV.
Lumen is really fucking Dexter's shit up. The guy already has a job to do, a kid to take care of, a Robocop stalking him and murderers to... well, murder. And now Dex has to drop his own stuff and follow her around cleaning her mess up. This week was actually the most shaken up I've ever seen Dexter. Usually in every situation he's calm and cool but in the warehouse with Lumen he was noticeably upset and rattled. I'm calling it now, the season ends with Lumen giving Dexter a heart attack.
I almost had one just watching the whole attempted murder turned murder unfold. This chick really botches a murder standing 10 feet away from the guy? Pretty sure my grandma could kill a guy from 20 feet. But worse is that she has no cleanup plan. She didn't think that there would be blood after she shot and killed this guy? And she did absolutely no research on this guy before unleashing a murder plan on him? If I was Dexter I would have just stabbed her right there for being an idiot.
In the end, it turns out that her hunch was right. This guy did rape her and because she was being a psycho and shoving her shoe in his mouth, Dexter had to pull her aside and gave the guy an opportunity to use his phone a friend to let his rapist buddies know she's still alive. Yet another -even bigger- mess that she's going to need Dex to bail her out of. Like he doesn't have enough on his plate already.
On another note, I'm actually interested in the Batista/La Guerta storyline again. Not that it wasn't well done before, I just found it hard to care about personally. Their marriage just got a lot more realistic this week. Angel pulls the whole "I'm a badass, I can handle myself" stuff on La Guerta and she puts him in his place. Sooooo shoot. After that, he's sulking in the back of the van with Deb going on about how unhappy he is in this marriage and how office romances can never end well and just when you think he's going to take action and go pick up a 'jubby' at the club, you find out he's just doing his job and trying to make his wife happy.
Speaking of office romances, fuck Deb and Quinn. Fuck Deb for liking Quinn and fuck Quinn for being Quinn. A lot of people are comparing Quinn to Doakes. I'll take Doakes over Quinn any day. Quinn's face annoys me, the way he talks annoys me, the shit he does annoys me. Which is a good thing for a heel character, though I have had a few people tell me that they genuinely like him so if there are any Osters who are on board the Quinn train hit up the comments section and please try to explain. I just don't get it.
Not only does Quinn sneak around and hire a guy to dig up some dirt on Dexter, not only does he sneak around and try to peg Dexter as Kyle Butler to a kid in protective custody who just found out his dad was a serial killer and not only is he a straight up asshole to Dex. After all that, he turns around and starts running Dexter's sister. And doesn't say anything to her about how he feels about Dexter. I'm getting legit hot just thinking about him. No Fronte.
One last thing I wanted to touch on is how creeped out I get whenever Captain Matthews is around. Everybody has their crazy theories and hope-ictions. But every time I see Matthews in a scene I feel more and more like mine actually holds some weight.
Remember how Harry Morgan and Matthews were best friends and Harry had asked Matthews to keep an eye on Dexter? And the first time Harry saw Dexter actually kill someone he suddenly regretted teaching Dexter how to kill and ended up purposely ODing himself. What if it wasn't suicide? What if he tried to turn Dexter in and Matthews thought it was brilliant and killed Harry to stop him from having Dexter stopped? Crazy, I know but at least I'm not proposing that Rita's death was a suicide.
