OMG I'm just dying waiting for each new episode to come out. It was pretty clear as soon as he met Lumen what he'd wind up doing for a while, but the scriptwriters sure stretched out getting him to accept that responsibility/activity. Tonight was the warehouse episode for me, and I was on tenterhooks for half the episode with tension and excitement. I'm being kept on the edge of my seat with Dexter being in so much peril of being caught so often.

Poor Dex, can't he catch a break with one nice satisfying and properly disposed of kill?

Debra Morgan and Lt Maria Laguerta are as intense and fascinating to watch as ever.

I mostly just feel bad for Debra and her men. I mean, let's see. There was the ice truck killer who was using her to get to Dex. Then there was Lundy, who left the show. Then there was Antoine who got all cut up by another perp. Then there was Lundy again, who got shot by Trinity. Now Quinn (what the hell?? He's hot, but he's a dick!) who just wants to put Dexter away.

I mean, damn, give the girl a break!!

Morgan seems to have self-esteem issues. That interferes with choosing good and stable men.

I'm just wondering if the scriptwriters are setting up Lumen to die tragically, but in peace, after she's got her last man, or setting her up as the female half of "Mr & Mrs Smith". Oo, oo, they might have her get increasingly unstable and blowing Dexter's cover, and Dex has to sadly but firmly take her out. Or maybe he'll get her all trained up in The Code (Yarr, they be more like guidelines), they'll bag her kills, and then he'll wave her off into the sunset, off to her own happy hunting grounds away from his.

I doubt Lumen makes it past this season in any way shape or form, simply because no one (with the exception of Quinn, methinks) who was introduced after the first episode has made it past the season they're introduced in.

I dunno if Dexter is going to want to bone Lumen. He's in a pretty bad place right now & I can't see her wanting a man to touch her at the moment. However, she can give Dex more targets, he can teach her the Code, & its win-win even without the boning.

I'm just dying. This season is 2/3 finished already! I don't see how the scriptwriters are going to finish up the Lumen story arc. (But wow, he offered up a blood slide with the wide craving eyes of a six year old craving approval) That creep ex-cop is not only a whisker's shave behind Dex and Lumen, he's making a case about the two of them that is worse even than the reality. The end of episode 8, with the telephoto lens, totally pounded me with adrenaline. NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!

Indeed.

I'm thinking Deb will get involved somehow, maybe she'll stumble into Quinn and his investigator buddy having a little meeting.

It's the lack of Lithgow. He was just way more awesome than the group of rapist/torturers that are the baddies this season.

I think that's part of it. The focus has been so much on Lumen, and I've grown used to the intensity of the focus being on the one main "bad guy".

The more I think about it, the more I wonder if Jordan Chase was one of the rapists. Two things come to mind:

1. He isn't in the picture.
2. His saying (tick tick tick.... etc.) is something he tells all of his clients. Also, he could've stolen that from someone who was the actual rapist when he met that person through Cole.

The only way they'd know for certain is the sound of the watch Lumen heard in her ear. I wouldn't be surprised if they kidnap Chase, tie him up and she hears his watch and is all "that's not it".

Good points all. Though I am confused why you put spoiler tags around what you did. Smiley: um

It's also possible that rapist also listens to this guys crap and that's where he got it instead of the other way around.

Though, in the car outside tee police station, Chase looked at Cole and said, "It's about time you did something right. Turning the investigation to Boyd was a good call." They could've been talking about something else, but it still sounds like he's a shady dude.

I guessed the most obvious thing that could happen... hoping not to ruin it for anyone.

Good point about the conversation in the car, I forgot about that one. Maybe Chase just didn't want any negative attention that a police investigation would bring. I'm reaching a little, but it would be a helluva twist.

Good episode. Looks like this season is approaching the end game. While not nearly as interesting as Trinity, Jordan Chase is certainly the most powerful foe Dexter's faced. Dexter's at a huge disadvantage, which usually isn't the case. It'll be neat to see how Dex gets Chase on the table.

No comments about Lumen on Dexter action???

Here's what I think's going to happen:

Dexter's either going to kill Jordan and let the cop take the fall, or kill the cop and let Jordan take the fall.

This is what I recon will happen:

Lumen will get full blame on killings. Notice how cops only find evidence of one female suspect. And Deb is already pointing at this. As I imagine somehow Lumen will clear Dexter from suspicion and die soon after ("there is no coming back after thing like this" - remember?). There will be nice narrated scene where Dexter will open himself to thought of people loving him despite knowing he is a monster. That would be a bridge to next season's Deb finding out who he is. As pointed by her newly found apreciation of vigilantes and justified killing of perps.

If if comes true, you totally owe me a cookie.

Great episode. Since I'm still of the opinion that Lumen isn't making it past this season. My guess would be that Dex & Lumen get Jordan, but somehow Lumen gets taken out by the cop, Deb finds this out, & then she catches Dex taking out the cop. Quinn now seems to be a non issue.

[quote=Belkira the Tulip]No comments about Lumen on Dexter action???

They did the scene really well. Lumen binding his hands initially, so she felt in control and unthreatened. The her freeing his hands because she felt she could trust him after she'd dipped her toes in the water. Dexter making helpless little wimpers and moans, like he was losing his virginity, he was so overwhelmed. The importance of someone making love with him knowing he's a killer.

Seondly, I admire that a fairly logical storyline (Dexter and Lumen come together romantically in the end, was handled by the scriptwriters and actors so well that it was never obvious that it was an utter inevitably. Right up until it happened, I'd lost any certainty of expectation that the script would go that way.


I really, really can't tell how this series is going to end.

Dex got picked up for Season 6. Almost about that time to start waiting another 9 months between episodes again! However, I doubt they'll up last year's season ending cliff hanger, so the wait should be easier.

Great ending to the season, although you can tell that it was originally written with the idea that there wouldn't be a Season 6.

One loose end:

Deb fired her gun, but didn't pick up the shell casing. I'm surprised CSI wouldn't find that when they got there. Loose end, or plot hole? You be the judge.

She didn't see the flipped car when driving up? Wouldn't Dexter's blood be in that car?


I'm sure there are more but those were the two that stood out to me.
