If last week's "Dexter" felt like an "Are we there yet?" car trip, "Make Your Own Kind of Music" announced that Dexter's end-game was very much in motion. The Brain Surgeon has been revealed ... and he's Vogel's son! And as the final scene showed, Dexter's spiritual mother chose her deranged biological progeny over her perfect pupil.
I gingerly got out of the car. I looked around for cameras, convinced I was about to be arrested. Then I thought about how frequently these cars are driven. "This must happen a lot, right?" I asked, hopefully.
Some vacationers look for Marriotts and McDonald's, anything to uphold the status quo. Not me. I blaze into a city, a country, a destination looking for one-of-a-kind rarities, attractions I will likely have but one opportunity to see.
A few threads are starting to connect, with Dexter's inner circle under attack and his apartment complex under siege. There's still time for "Dexter" to pull off a great ending, even if parts of this season have felt like a long road trip.
Breaking Bad is ending, and there won't be anywhere to hide -- the Internet is going to blow up. You're going to freak out a little, but it's good to have millions of online presences by your side, suffering right there with you.
There's another showdown looming between Hannah and Deb, and it's going to get really ugly. Deb seems more jealous that Dexter is still in love with Hannah than she is that that Hannah has now drugged her twice.
With Dexter and Deb finally at peace, this episode of "Dexter" felt like it was was back in its comfort zone, which proves the week-old television maxim: If you want to pull a show out of a rut, sometimes you have to drive into a lake.
It doesn't get more bizarrely, out-of-nowhere-climactic than the end of tonight's "Dexter." I'm betting that some will see Deb's insane moment as another example of "Dexter" jumping the shark.
Oh, Deb. Poor Deb. Her character's roller-coaster ride of guilt and self-destruction reached rock bottom this week. The final season of "Dexter" has to move past Deb's downward spiral and her threatening to turn both herself and her brother in, right?
Well, "Dexter" fans, we've got another serial killer on our hands. In a classic example of youngest child syndrome, Deb the Bounty Hunter is on a killing spree now too, because who wants to let their older brother have all the fun?
"Dexter" began its final season Sunday night as the TV landscape found itself at an anti-hero crossroads. Two weeks after James Gandolfini's death and at the start of a summer that will see the series finales of "Dexter" and "Breaking Bad," it feels like a TV era is coming to and.
Yvonne Strahovski went from fighting crime to committing it. On Chuck Strahovski played tough-as-nails agent Sarah Walker, who was tasked with protecting Zachary Levi's Chuck but ended up falling for him.
Most famous for his role as the "gay temp" and then a series regular for 10 years on NYPD Blue, Bill Brochtrup is still at work and can be seen on the WIGS series Kendra and Showtime's Dexter and Shameless. I caught up with the pioneering openly gay actor on SnowbizNow.
Full of pulse-pounding moments and clever writing, The Following proves to be the next greatest serial killer drama.
Violence and murder are and should be tools in the storytellers' arsenals, but those tools grow dull with overuse.
All in all I liked this season of Dexter but thought that the writers just threw too much at us. I know they're trying to set up next season for the series finale, but they did it at the expense of some solid storytelling.
