Tick tick tick, that's the sound of my heart pounding into my ribs. This episode was the craziest thrillride this season. Is it gay or okay to use the word 'thrillride'? Seriously though, this episode was highspot from start to finish. This episode also provided Dexter with the stiffest competition yet. So much evidence is piling up against Dex that even though like Tid said, "We all know Dexter's gonna win in the end" it makes it really hard to see a legitimate way out.
How is Dexter supposed to wriggle free from the evil clutches of Robocop? Not only is Robocop on Dex's case, not only is he working with Quinn and not only does he now have incriminating photos of Dexter and Lumen dumping bodies out of the boat but worst of all Dexter has absolutely no idea that this guy even exists. This season reminds me so much of a Hulk Hogan match. The deck gets absolutely stacked against the good guy and you start legitimately thinking that the bad guys are gonna win. Just remember that I called it if Dex starts shaking his head and wagging his finger at Jordan Chase before he puts his blood on a slide.
Speaking of Jordan Chase, it looks like Tid was dead on the money about Chase's deeper meaning of "Take it!". And not only is he the leader of this stable of heels, but he just happens to be 'watch guy' who is also the last guy on the list. Which is going to make for an interesting last 4 episodes. Especially considering that Dexter was seen at the seminar and had a room next to Chase's head of security who just happened to have a room right next to Dexter's which also incidentally has a bashed in door joining the two. Explain your way out of that one, Dex.
Continuing on my switchaz on the Batista storyline, I'm really digging the way this is all going down. I was legit convinced that it was Angel that ratted Deb out. Turns out it was the sexy spanish 'jubby'. Honestly, I never catch her name so feel free to throw it up in the comments section if anyone actually remembers it. I really like it that they're getting back to LaGuerta being a bitch. She hasn't really been a cuntbar since the first season, I like hating her though. The police station was starting to feel like Sesame Street with no heat between anyone.
Furthermore, with Deb getting fucked over by LaGuerta it really furthers the whole Deb as a killer tease they threw at us this week with her not feeling guilty for killing Carlos Fuentes. I remember someone commenting a couple weeks ago with a theory that Deb was a killer too. I still don't think she's going to keep killer or team up with Dexter or anything crazy like that but I really like the new dynamic it created between her and Dexter. If you rewatch the scene where Deb tells Dex she didn't feel anything you can really see Dexter feel a stronger connection with his sister.
Like I wrote in my last article, there is so much depth to be found in every episode. Dexter's facials are so real it makes me wonder if this is a documentary sometimes. He can convey so much with one expression. Just from that back and forth with Deb you can see how badly he wants to connect with his sister and how much she believes she has already connected with him. You can also tell just how lonely he is. He wants so badly to bring everybody into his world. He let Miguel in, he's now let Lumen in, he's told Harrison that he kills people and he desperately wants to bring Deb in. It must get lonely talking only to the imaginary ghost of your father.
With 4 more episodes to go before the season wraps up I'm expecting the home stretch to be pedal to the metal much the same as this week's episode. And for the first time in the series I'm actually seriously entertaining the idea that this may be it and Dexter may actually get caught. So if they have me this reeled in this early then I can only imagine what's to come. As always, comments are encouraged, theories are welcome and feel free to blast me for not coming with an article last week, I apologize.
