Okay, maybe you're right in that it hasn't (completely) jumped the shark. I guess my main point was that they're losing me. Too much "humanity" and not enough Dark Passenger.
Bring me the fucking Dark Passenger!
Yeah, nowhere near as well.
For me, the personal inner conflict stuff just isn't clicking. Maybe it's the writing, maybe it's my high expectations (after 4-5 seasons of such high quality). But, it sounds like I am in the minority so I will do my best to try not to dampen the party going on here. Just please...no more shooting sprees. Dexter is a knife wielder, not a gunslinger.
Caught up on the last two episodes. I really dug that tableau with the Bowls of Wrath, and how Dexter showed anger for being covered in guts. It seems like we're about to get into the true race now - Dexter vs. Miami Metro... I just hope this isn't just another thing of Dexter catching the bad guy, putting him on his table, doing the slice, and then another period of peace. Travis should do some real damage. Or I hope that one of the Miami Metro people finds out Dexter's truth - NOT Quinn. Baptista or even Maria, which might open some tense possibilities (and also might force Dexter to kill her later, which I would not mind at all).
I enjoyed the episode a lot, but i didn't like the way they revealed that Gellar isn't real. Especially because the whole guy in a freezer that you still talk to thing was covered on Desperate Housewives a few years ago. I would have much rather them gone the Mrs. Bates route and we find Gellar as some partially rotted corpse that Travis has tried to preserve. Oh, and that shrink is bad news.
and masuka's new assistant, having a hand from the ITK case in his house? I knew there would be something wrong with either him or bautista's sister
What about Deb's boss being the guy who tried CPR on the tweaker prostitute
we found out about that a couple episodes ago
Looking forward to the speculation after this season is over -
“Coming back for two more years gives us clarity about how and when it will go out,” Nevins told Entertainment Weekly. “There’s things that are going to happen (this season) that will set up a very clear endgame that will take two seasons to tell. You have got to be there for the last two episodes.”
Yeah, it was announced a couple of weeks ago that there were going to be 2 more seasons. I was a little skeptical until I read a quote similar to the one Lilia posted above about the writers/Dexter team realizing that the rest of the story had a two-season arc. I think they'll be able to pull it off! Can't wait to see how this season pans out...
Wait...some discontent from the minions? Oh my.
