Returns September 28th! One of the few shows I follow week to week. After that TV show thread, I realized a lot of people dig Miami's coolest serial killer.

M Sparks
09-11-2008, 01:13 PM
whoops, *spoiler alert*

No surprise on her, but good to hear about Dokes. That's guy's acting "style" was so annoying, and how long could they drag on the "I'm suspicious of you...I got my eye on you" bit. It worked the first season, but in the second season, he's trying to dodge the EffingBI. Why do I care about this dumb-ass cop being on his case?

When he actually had Dokes fooled with the whole "I'm an addict" bit, I was so relieved they had finally moved on. Then, 3 weeks later, it starts all over again. It just got boring. And how many weeks did they go without a kill? It was like watching porn with all the sex scenes cut out. (Which, by the way, is the best way to watch Cafe Flesh, but that's the exception to the rule.)

The first season was flawless. Maybe I'll finally watch the last three episodes or season 2 and give season 3 a chance.

EDIT- Oh, and the new police captain (or whatever) obsessed with the cheating boyfriend...did that EVER pay off in ANY way? Now that I think about it, that's the point where I really started to doubt the show.

Caradine was awesome, though.

We were a bit upset that he decided to let Dokes take the fall and go back to being a serial killer. I was kind of hoping for him to become "good" and stop killing.

Discuss the season so far?

As for the past seasons.... Lila was great until she turned out to be psycho cunt. Glad she's gone. This season Rita is already getting on my nerves. Her and her fucking pudding. This new guy... shit I forgot his name... so obvious Deb is going to bang him, then something with this internal affairs chic is going to happen (deb will find out what newbie did and drama will ensue)...


Anyone here read the books? I've read Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dearly Devoted Dexter and enjoyed both. I'm not sure when Dexter in the Dark came out but it looks as though it got bad reviews. Anyone read it and can give their opinion?

Oh my bro has a picture of him with Julie Benz at comic con. I know he posts here, I'll see if he can put it up because she looks HOOOOOOTTTTT. Way hotter than on the show!!!!! Way.

Amy, are you watching Dexter from the beginning or just this season? I watch all the episodes online on Sidereel.com. I haven't had any problems but I'm up to the current episodes. A co-worker of mine is watching Dexter from the beginning and hasn't told me about any problems she's encountered. I know in the past I've found torrents of the seasons too...

Academy Award-nominated and Emmy, Tony and Golden Globe award-winner John Lithgow will take on one of his most intense and intriguing roles to date portraying Miami's latest serial killer in Showtime's top-rated drama series "Dexter." Lithgow will be featured in all 12 episodes of season four which are scheduled to premiere Sunday, September 27th on Showtime.

Lithgow will play Walter Simmons, an unassuming, mild-mannered suburbanite who has been living a dual life as one of America's most prolific and deadliest serial killers. Dubbed the "Trinity Killer" because of his proclivity to kill in three's, he relocates to Miami after being tracked by F.B.I. Special Agent Frank Lundy (Keith Carradine). Brought on to assist in the investigation of Miami's latest serial killer, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) becomes fascinated with "Trinity's" unique killing methods and his ability to evade capture for almost three decades.

Kick ass casting!!! Anything involving Lithgow is epic win

Is anyone current? I watched the 1st episode of the latest season last night, watching again now - it is fucking fantastic. John Lithgow is going to be great on this show! For me, season 3 lost momentum and it took me a while to get around to watching all of the episodes. It did get interesting near the end. But this season looks like there will be so many different stories going on and I just love it when there is another serial killer being hunted that is just as intriguing as Dexter and is in the show as a central character (ice truck killer).

I absolutely love how this show keeps evolving and gains so much more character development and storyline.

John Lithgow is pretty much a probable creepy serial killer anyways, so this is pretty much a win-win for the Dexter fans.

Okay, maybe he isn't one in real life, but after watching the first two episodes, it makes him as believeable as you could get in regards to casting the Trinity Killer.

Hopefully it'll keep up its momentum and we'll see less of Debra--which I doubt will actually happen lol.

No, no - not dating, they already got married! This is very old news, Jorge! Where have you been??


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Dexter" star Michael C. Hall has married co-star Jennifer Carpenter, who plays his sister on the television show, the actor's representative said on Friday.

They wed on New Year's Eve in picturesque Big Sur, California, and she had a wedding ring linked to a bouquet, Hall's representative Craig Bankey said in a statement.

The ring was passed down from Carpenter's grandfather.

In "Dexter," Hall plays Dexter Morgan, a Miami police analyst who moonlights as a serial killer targeting sociopaths. Carpenter plays Debra Morgan, Dexter's adoptive sister, a tomboyish cop. "Dexter" is on U.S. cable channel Showtime.

Hall, 37, and Carpenter, 29, dated for a year and-a-half before being married, Bankey said.

Latest episode was just OK. What can I say? I enjoy the killings. I feel the same way towards Rita that I felt during most of season 2. Cannot stand her.

*bit of a spoiler*
I really like Lundy. I hope that ends up to be one of the most interesting aspects of the season where they make it seem like Dexter is constantly on his toes with Lundy hoping not to be discovered as a serial killer. I'm also looking forward to seeing why Dexter and the Trinity Killer meet. But fuck Rita. Maybe if you didn't make your full time working husband stay up all night with the baby he wouldn't have rolled his fucking car - then you wanna show up at his work and talk shit? I really think she's gonna end up banging their neighbor.

also she comes off as too plain and "normal" to be his daughter.
i imagine that growing up with that guy would seriously F U up in the head

11-24-2009, 06:39 PM
I don't think they team up to kill people. That'd be pretty lame. She is the one who shot Dexter's sister though, so I'm guessing this connection between trinity and the reporter is just to show she's capable of such things.

You mean Deb, right? I think it was pretty easy to suspect Christine of killing Lundy and shooting Deb once Deb determined that the shooter was not a tall man but someone the size of Masuka. She is so desperate for a story. What a disappointment though; I really hoped Trinity would be offing Christine instead we find out she's his fucking daughter. No wonder she's fucking nuts.

Does anyone else not give a fuck about Laguerta and Batista's romantic relationship? And I can't stand Elliott's face.

This season is really turning out to be a good one. although i havent seen the first 2, how were they?
Season 1 is terrific. Follows the first book pretty closely and really does a great job of developing the characters. Season 1 also has a great ongoing plot with another killer like this season. Season 2 was good, better than season 3 IMO. This season is almost as good as the first.

I wish I can experience the first 2 seasons again. THE BEST imo. I doubt you'll find many who disagree.

Season 1 is also essential to learn about where Dexter came from and what made him the way he is. They drop the event from time to time in the series but seasons 1 and 2 really explain his background and Harry's as well.

At what point did Trinity kill Rita and at what point did Dexter get Trinity's oil can or whatever caused him to break down? The end was crazy but I want to know the timeline.

Talk about feeling helpless. The first thing you'd wanna do is go out and kill who did this to your wife but you already did.

I agree, this season was much better than the last. I'm just not sure how single daddy Dexter is going to work out.

biggfoot17
12-16-2009, 10:38 AM

I tried reading the 3rd book on my flight last night and got sad every time Rita was mentioned. I just kept picturing her dead in the bathtub. I'm sure most people couldn't stand her throughout the seasons but fuck! I'm still not over it. It's going to be awesome to see everyone's reaction to this (Deb and everyone at Dexter's work). Plus they think Trinity is still out there. I also wonder where the whole Laura Moser thing goes.

Dexter is amazing show :) I don't know where to put this, but i just saw on imdb they are doing a movie about a serial killer next year. Looks interesting:

so, i know i'm totally late to this party but i just *now* watched the very first Dexter episode. i've succumbed and think i'll become hooked after the first season. it's nice to see michael hall again (loved him so much in 6' under).

anyway, i've got a lot of catching up to do. i'll try to restrain myself from posting about shit you guys have already discussed....can't promise though.

I watched the last episode last night, and all I have to say is... "What the fuck?"

BlackSwan
01-11-2010, 09:57 AM
Ok, I actually have some more to say. Anyone else notice the weird plot holes, and irregularities that led to Rita's death? For starters, she forgot her ID? Who the fuck takes just their driver's license out of their wallet/purse, and ends up forgetting when they are going on a trip? Second, when did Trinity have time to kill Rita? He didn't have car between the time that Dexter drugged him and when he picked up the car. Third, when did he have time to find Dexter's real address? Fourth, while Trinity said, "It's all over," when lying on Dexter's table, he never mentions killing Rita... Slightly odd. Fourth, they used the saturation during the final Trinity scene that is usually used when Dexter talks to Harry. And fifth, and possibly most important, why didn't Dexter get Rita's call/message earlier?

Nope, remember... Trinity goes to Dexter's old apartment and find the bra, and the mail that says Deborah Morgan on it. They never show him finding the real address. Unfortunately, all my hoping that this is some how unresolved is moot:


'Dexter' boss answers more burning Qs (no, it wasn't a dream)

As my esteemed colleague Ken Tucker just pointed out, conspiracy theories are flying around fast and furious in the wake of last night’s mind-blowing Dexter season finale. [SPOILER ALERT] Could Rita be alive? And is it possible she died at the hands of Dexter and not Trinity? I got exec producer Clyde Phillips back on the horn for another round of burning questions…

Is Rita really dead?
CLYDE PHILLIPS: Yes.

Is Trinity really dead?
PHILLIPS: Yes. Cut up and drifting in the Gulf Stream.

Did Trinity kill Rita?
PHILLIPS: Yes he did. That’s partly what he meant when he said: “It’s already over.”

I'm still not happy with the ending though. I am not surprised it was a last minute decision, and the writers have no fucking clue what they are doing next:



'Dexter' finale postmortem: Find out why they [spoiler alert]!

Warning: Stop reading if you have yet to watch tonight’s killer Dexter season finale. Everyone else, see below for my exclusive postmortem with executive producer Clyde Phillips. Among the hot topics discussed: When (and why) was the decision made to whack Rita? Will she return as a ghost? What was the alternate cliff-hanging twist? And when the hell will Deb figure out the truth about Dex?

When was the decision made to kill off Rita?
CLYDE PHILLIPS: I would say we made the decision pretty late in the season. We didn’t quite know what we were going to do [in the finale].

Why Rita?
PHILLIPS: The story evolved and it kind of became inevitable. We knew that we had to do more than kill Trinity. It’s a little bit of a corner that we paint ourselves into. Last year we tried to avoid that and actually I think we didn’t do as well as we could have. We killed off Jimmy Smits’ character [in the 11th episode] of 12 episodes and then we had to figure out what we were going to do in the 12th episode. This season, we knew that we were going to take Trinity out in the 12th episode and we think that the audience knew that, too. We had to raise the bar to as high as possible and then figure out what to do next year.

How did Julie Benz take the news that she was leaving the show?
PHILLIPS: She wasn’t happy. She loved being with us. We loved having her with us. She took it… professionally. She was greatly disappointed. She’s a professional. She works in television. She knew that this was a possibility.

Did Trinity tell Rita about Dexter before he killed her?
PHILLIPS: I don’t know the answer to that question. We haven’t talked about next season. But [my gut says] I would think that he did not tell her.

Might she return as a ghost like Dex’s dad?
PHILLIPS: The answer, at the moment, is no. However, had you asked me two years ago if Lundy was coming back I would’ve said no. We didn’t know he was coming back until this year. It just seemed expedient to the story — to Dexter’s story and to Deb’s story.

Some people thought the game-changing twist was going to involve Deb figuring out that Dexter is a serial killer. How much longer can you stretch out that story before you pay it off?
PHILLIPS: We’ve bounced that around the [writers'] room. But once we do that… want to talk about game-changers? Once we do that, the game is changed in a way that we just don’t know how to anticipate just yet.

Will next season be about Dexter juggling serial killing and single fatherhood?
PHILLIPS: He is a single father. But, beyond that, we don’t know. We don’t know if there’s going to be what we call “a Big Bad,” like Jimmy Smits and John Lithgow, or if it’s going to be more individual, stand-alone stories.

I understand you wrote two endings to throw people off. What was the other ending?
PHILLIPS: While Dexter was packing to leave, he saw on the television that a child murderer had just escaped from prison. Either escaped or fallen thru the cracks. So he’s thinking, “Do I join Rita on vacation or do I…” and then he looks towards the camera and he has this big decision.

That would’ve been disappointing.
PHILLIPS: [Laughs] Yeah. Compared to this? Are you kidding?

I could have come with a better ending to the season than this. Killing Rita was a terrible idea.

Killing Rita was a terrible idea.

i just watched the finale of season 4. i disagree with you swan. i found rita totally annoying and a constraint to dexter's character and am glad she's gone. i do understand that this was key to building the tension for the famly conflict that harry kept pointing out, but she just bugged.

however, as a fan of the show, i think they've painted themselves into a corner. they will likely have to confront the "end game" sooner than later now as there just is no way dexter can continue doing what he's doing with him now being responsible for the 3 kids. and the fact that deb made the moser connection. finally, bautista saw dexter with trinity in the precinct so how will that, and the fact that rita was a trinity victim (if that actually comes to light), be explained? (although, didn't they nail down trinity's real ID *after* the precinct incident? if so, why wouldn't bautista have had made that connection then?). i guess they could pawn off rita's death as a suicide. but, now there are two odd serial killer coincidences (ice truck and trinity) that are tied to dexter. it just seems to me that the cat's gotta fall out of the bag now, don't you think?

season 5 should be an interesting one!

unknown
02-06-2010, 02:29 PM
I agree, season 5 is going to be very interesting to see where they go with this. I think at least 2 of the kids (Cody and Astor) are going to end up with Paul's parents. Still though, Dexter as a single dad should be interesting or it could end up being boring. I was very bored with Dexter as a husband and father but at least he was able to get out and be himself. I hadn't even thought about Bautista seeing Trinity with Dexter. Here Rita dies in the same manner in which Miami's biggest serial killer kills people - there is no way that connection won't be made. I think Deb and Captain Matthews are the main people who know that Dexter is related to Brian Moser. I think this is the last season for Dexter though.

You're overlooking a lot here. Rita has been an important part of developing Dexter's character. You say she bugged you, but you still liked the show. You enjoyed disliking her character. I said it was a terrible idea because of the way it done. They spent this whole season developing "Daddy Dexter" just to wipe it all clean at the end for no reason other than it would make for a sensational ending. They have no concept of where this is going to lead the story.



however, as a fan of the show, i think they've painted themselves into a corner. they will likely have to confront the "end game" sooner than later now as there just is no way dexter can continue doing what he's doing with him now being responsible for the 3 kids.

He never officially adopted them, so they will most likely end up with the grandparents that showed up in the last episode, or Rita's mother.



and the fact that deb made the moser connection. finally, bautista saw dexter with trinity in the precinct so how will that,


I'm pretty sure Batista didn't see Trinity's face.



and the fact that rita was a trinity victim (if that actually comes to light), be explained? (although, didn't they nail down trinity's real ID *after* the precinct incident? if so, why wouldn't bautista have had made that connection then?).

This last episode seemed to be continuing the set up for the season and it had a lot of filler. Does anyone really care if Maria is keeping her fortune a secret? I didn't. The kids are going to live with Grandma and Grandpa already? Deb likes beer and kinda likes Quinn.

Finally, how long before Dexter brings his baby to his first kill? I say less than 3 episodes.

LaGuerta is obviously embezzling money from the department, not just hiding a retirement account.

Quinn will probably get an inkling that Dex is Kyle in the next episode, but no one will back him up on it. It's kinda strange they compared Dexter to Ted Bundy (3 different interpretations in the sketches). He always looks the same, and Bundy NEVER looked the same twice.

i take back all my doubtful comments about this season.

i really love how they have dealt with the emotional repercussions of rape and abuse. i was getting fairly tired of the dark passenger repetition. but i think theyve done a phenomenal job with the heavy heavy themes of this season.

last weeks episode, <3. cant wait for next week.

I'm happy the new season is living up to how good last season was. I have a friend who was at the premiere of the finale last season and he spoke with a producer and they mentioned that it was likely season 6 will be the final season.

He and I speculated that Deb was finally going to put the pieces together about Dexter and the final season would be her hunting him down.

Anyway, I cannot fucking wait for the next episode! I was wondering what Jordan Chase would have done if Dexter was with Lumen when she went to the house. The guy seemed like a mess and I bet Dexter could have taken him down.

Ratings for "Dexter" have been so good this season that renewing it for Season 6 was "the easiest decision I’ve made since I got to Showtime," network boss David Nevins says.

I highly doubt it. It will come back to haunt Quinn. He is going to be pinned for the murder and sound crazy when trying to put the blame on Dex. Deb and Laguardia know Quinn has a "bullshit" theory about Dexter and put him away for life and off the series.

I think it will cause Quinn a lot of problems. Dexter worked this clean. I don't expect Liddy's murder to be tracked back to Dexter by anyone. I think Quinn will be surprised about Liddy's death and then ultimately become a suspect. Not to mention Quinn's name is still on the log that checked out the surveilance equipment that's already been destroyed, how will explain that?

Without that, there isn't any hard evidence against Dexter. Just straws for grasping.

Also the last call Liddy made was to Quinn. Seems like theres way to much to pin him to not happen. Even if Deb finds out about Dexter killing the barrel girls guys I don't think she will tie him to Liddy's murder. She said so herself that she is envious of the vigilante which brings me to believe that she wont turn in her brother.

I mean, Dexter fucks up and crashes his fucking car and this Jordan Chase asshole really does a half assed job of tying up his victims. Also, Deb. Really...I mean seriously?

So, how does this work....Looman's fingerprints have to be all over that basement. Deb's bullet hole is going to be found down there as well. Are they just going to ignore that all together?

The blood on Quinn's shoe clears him? Then who's fucking blood is it?! Nobody gives a fuck because everyone hated the douchebag anyway since it's not linked to anyone else in the dna database they will just forget it? After so many edge of the seat moments in previous episodes they seemed to rush through to get some conclusions here at the end and ultimately but a nice pretty bow on top. While we are on break we can sleep easy knowing Looman has left and Dexter is going for dad of the year award watching all the kids during the summer...cute.

Alchemy
12-13-2010, 09:47 AM
Faxman, the implication was that Dexter sabotaged the blood work so that Quinn wouldn't get in trouble. He did it for Deb, obviously. Not for Quinn.

As for Deb's bullet, Dexter could have got it. They did clean up and take the body away. Lumen's prints, though. Yeah, they probably would show up somewhere. We probably will not hear about it though.

The season finale sucked.

EDIT: Oh, and as for the blood belonging to some randomer, maybe Dexter put his own blood on it or something. Or maybe he put something that wasn't blood.

Oh, I got that but I was just wondering if the blood shouldn't at least be something to go on. I wanted more specifics about the analysis he submitted. No point really though I guess.

Yeah, I think my criticisms are a bit silly except for how nice and neat the finish was. I enjoyed it but everything just went a little too perfect.

I won't say it sucked but I was starting to think this was the best season yet but now i'm back to thinking last season was better.

Alchemy
12-13-2010, 10:18 AM
You're right about everything being a little too perfect. What should have happened is that Deb should have seen them. She could have still let them get away with it, of course, but it would have set a fresh mood for the next season. I mean, are you fucking kidding me with that sheet of plastic? She should have asked them to step forward, slowly, and then, Oh shit! Dexter and Lumen! THEN, it would have made more sense for Lumen to bounce at the end. Because she could have said, "Your sister thinks I drove you to murder. I'm compromising things." Even if Deb wanted them to be together. Instead, Lumen leaving at the end just made her seem like a fickle bitch. What the shit. This guy just helped you take revenge on everybody that hurt you and he saved your life a couple times or more. And now you're going to leave him because he kills people!? That leaves out the cool premise of Dexter and Lumen killing random killers together.

Basically, we're back to square one, except without Rita and the kids (assuming they go home after the summer). The whole purpose of this season was so that Dexter could get a nanny.

Astrid
12-13-2010, 11:34 AM
There is absolutely no way deb would have let them go without seeing their faces, she is a fucking detective, her entire character is driven by a need to figure things out. i understand why she let them go, but that is completely unbelievable.

i also agree that the way lumen left dexter was offensive and ridiculous. if they wanted stiles off the show they could have dealt with it in a much better way, it makes no sense that she would completely accept who dexter was as a person and then reject him on account of that. what a selfish bitch, fuck her.

faxman75
12-13-2010, 11:40 AM
It could have interesting had Lumen ultimately freaked out on Dexter when he got home and started screaming something like "what did you turn me into" and was full of resentment at the end of it all. It would be cool if she came back and started hunting Dexter too.

Llama of Time
12-13-2010, 09:00 PM
I actually have a theory about Deb. Maybe she knows. Like later, when she says "are you glad its all over?" or something like that. That all of whats over? On the way to the camp, what if she called records and they had mentioned that Dexter had called saying a girls life was in danger. And then she could see the silhouettes or whatever, she could probably tell it was the size of Dexter. And after the records thing she could have easily connected the dots. Like the fact that Lumen showed up out of nowhere in her point of view, like Dexter was trying to keep her secret, and she fit the description of the barrel girls.

It would explain why she didnt want to see their faces, maybe she knew but didnt want to see him.

Just a theory though. There were plenty of problems. Like the car. Thats kind of a big plot hole.

And not to mention, how the hell was the case solved? They congratulated her on solving it when all she did was find the crime scene. Dexter and Lumen got rid of the body. All they know is that Jordan owned the camp. But didnt he own that car that was in that wreck too? Why didn't that incriminate him then? Not to mention that as far as the police know hes still on the loose.

And the way Lumen left was bullshit. That scene felt so forced (Though Dexter's reaction was really good, but Lumens explanation was stupid). Why'd they have to get a (somewhat) well known actor? I keep hearing they probably didn't want to pay her for next season. If thats the case they should have gotten a no name that wouldnt command a big salary. Not like Stiles did a great job acting (Though she got better as the season went on)

now that she is done she can resume her life. I really wanted them to be a team though.

finally had the time to watch the finale tonite. yeah, what all of you have already said. i think the notion that Deb actually knows who it was is intriguing. but, this finale was pretty rubbish. too trim and tidy indeed.

one benefit of watching this later was that it was post-divorce announcement. the one line when Deb said something about "nothing is at it seems" was almost auto-biographical. oh, and stiles and hall totally fucked off screen. the tell is in the way they look at each other. not acting.

I just finished the last two episodes and I, too, thought the finale was pretty lame. I agree with Alchemy, next season would have been much more interesting if Deb had found Dexter there, but decided not to turn them in. Just her having to deal with that. So I'm gonna go with Llama's theory and presume Deb figured it out, but like Dexter and Quinn, she's not telling the whole story.

I do like that the two of them had an understanding. I think Quinn didn't push it because partially, in addition to further fucking things up with Deb, he's just relieved Liddy is out of the picture.

Jordan was retarded. What a horrible season "big kill" after an actor and character like Lithgow. I love me some Jonny Lee Miller, but he should really stick to Jane Austen remakes. He is just not menacing in the slightest. I almost couldn't believe he had enough strength to take out Emily. I guess it was interesting just because he had this whole entourage they had to take out before getting to him.

Oh well. It was a good season. Not as good as 4, but I really did like Dexter and Lumen together. I hope she stops being such a freakin flake and proves that it was real love. But maybe Jordan was right, in his final thoughts. They shared something so intense that their feelings felt more profound than they really were. Dexter probably felt more for her because this wasn't a new thing for him. He was used to the darkness, he just finally had someone to share it with. Lumen was experiencing a brand new life. It didn't hit her in the same way it hit Dexter. I guess I can accept that. She wasn't ever in love with him.
