Blog sites are filled with comments – both pro and con – on how Dexter played out this season. I can only say, the predictions I gave weren’t a spoiler because I hadn’t seen the final episodes, but I was right on. Lila – as annoying as Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s little sister Dawn – just had to go. She was ruining his control, and would likely have ruined his life. As for Doakes, would Dex have finished him off if Lila hadn’t conveniently done it for him? I like to think not. I’m sorry he’s gone. It would have been so much more interesting had he killed Lila and gone on the run, another hanger-on for next season’s plotline. So where is Dexter going in Season 3? I suspect that we’ll see LaGuerta still trying to prove that Doakes wasn’t the Bay Harbor Butcher. We’ll see Debs still conflicted about Lundy (maybe even making a trip or two to be with him before the age difference gets just too much and he dumps her) and we’ll see Dexter making plans to marry Rita until she begins to wonder why he isn’t still in NA. We’ll also see Dex way more cautious because if one more body surfaces, Doakes won’t be a killer any more.
By Elaine B All the action in “Sí, se puede” (a nice election week tie in, sí?) left me feeling a bit drained. In this case, ” Yes we can” means that Miguel turned out to be a perfect sidekick, even game for taking out white supremacist Clemson Galt. Naming Clemson, who is already in a maximum-security prison, as his next victim, Dexter hoped to dissuade Miguel from wanting to engage in some male bonding over a killing table. Unfortunately for Dex, Prado is an adrenaline junkie who figures out a way to get the swastika-tatted Clem out of prison […]
By Elaine B You can almost pity Dexter the situation he’s in at the end of the episode aptly titled “Go Your Own Way,” though he has only himself to blame. First off, so desperate to have one friend who knows him for [almost] exactly what he is, he’s opened up to a psychopath who is far more vicious than even Dexter can imagine. Now it’s clear that the incredible meeting in the rain between Dexter and Miguel after Dex killed Freebo was not, as Prado tried to claim, something he could not have done himself. He planned to do […]
