Dexter is by far my favorite tv series, season 2 will be hard to top. The first episode was definitely interesting, but I'm still curious about where they can go this season that can deliver like last season.

Last night definitely had me on the edge of my seat...

Dexter really had to think on the spot this time rather than his normal well-thought-out methodic planning. He knows how to play the "weak victim" quite well, much like when he headbutted Doakes & then walked out and got attacked in front of everybody last season. He looks like a sneaky child who's trying to avoid getting in trouble. Dexter will already be uncomfortable enough with having Miguel know he killed somebody, but it looks like Miguel tells his brother from the previews....and then there's Miguel's father's knife & the bloody shirt that are sure to come back to haunt him somehow...Oh, and Dexter still has to "dispose" of Freebo somehow right? How's that going to play out?

Anybody here read the books? If they are smart, next season they'll try a way to work Dr. Danco into the story. They don't have to follow the book exactly, but Dr. Danco is an awesome badguy for Dexter! I found him way more interesting than the Ice Truck Killer.

Well since the DA left Dexter can dispose of the body. He is going to destroy Deb's chance at Detective. The DA won't put pressure on the team if things go cold. The stuff at the end of the 2nd episode will come back somehow and the DA will probably be accused but who knows. the previews show Dex and the 2 brothers getting cozy. Now with the added drama of
Rita being pregnant should add a very interesting moral dillemma
This is going to be a really good season.

The interesting part to me will be "how" he disposes of the body. He has the DA convinvced (or so it seems) that he was just a scared blood splatter guy forced to defend himself. Actually disposing of the body (and how he does it) would definitely have the DA looking at Dexter in a different light. It goes far beyond just self defense.:maul


The DA will probably end up labeled as the killer due to the shirt & knife, Deb will solve the case & get her shield that way.

Anyone who watches this show on CBS or whatever it was syndicated to is missing so much of the actual story. The things they have to cut is integral to the story. Not to mention 9/10ths of Debs dialogue would be bleeped out. Like a Lil Wayne song being played on the Disney Channel :lol

Another great episode tonight. It'll be interesting to see where they're going with Prado. He seems to get just a little creepier every episode.

Watching this episode I was thinking about how the other main guest characters had been part of the dark side of Dexter, his brother, the girl and now Prado and then Dexter articulates exactly that same thing in his V.O. It certainly is becoming must watch TV. Can't wait to see where they're going with it.

This whole thing with the guy who has been wrongly sent to jail for life could play out. Prado becomes a liability for Dexter, the innocent guy dies in jail - Dexter justifies that Prado is a murderer and kills him. But I hope it's more convoluted and morally twisted than that.

Batty
10-28-2008, 11:05 PM
I wonder if Dexter ends up pinning the murders of Freebo and the guy on the boat on Prado. Prado did have a connection to both of them. And Dexter does have his shirt with Freebo's blood on it. But then again, that would be too much like Doakes taking the fall last season. Next week looks interesting.

I really liked Masuka this episode. :lol

die
10-29-2008, 07:14 AM
I really liked how Dexter really began to struggle with the idea of marriage in this last episode. I liked how it really sank in when he suddenly realized marriage would mean giving up his apartment & his "alone time".

Much like last season, I'm sure Season 3 will really pick up big time in the last 3 or 4 episodes and really deliver, it has to. Prado is a character that I find myself becoming more interested in from week to week.

with Prado & his other brother, The new cop Quinn, The "Skinner" killer, Deb trying to get her shield and Rita being pregnant...you just have to feel a huge epic final episode coming for this season.

I don't think Dexter will be able to use the shirt with Freebo's blood on it. Prado gave it back to him for a reason: to let Dexter know he was on to him and the possible set up down the road.

I don't think so. I think Prado is sincere is trying to get Dexter to trust him and that's why he gave him the shirt.

Actually pinning everything on Prado (after he kills him) now seems likely.

I just bought season one on a whim at a local bookstore, I had always heard how good the show was --- but WOW, I am hooked. The episode in the auto yard (with the Cuban boy) was so tense, I was actually stressed just watching it. I thought something was up with the doc, and that he might in fact be the Ice Truck Killer --- I can't wait to see how this winds up.

Of course then on to season two, which I have actually heard is even better.

Season 2 gets pretty hectic....so prepare for many, many more tense moments! I'll leave it at that, spoiler-free. You should really get caught up, ASAP and move on to season 3 with us.


On to tonight's show (Season 3 ep. 6)

**spoilers**





Tonight's episode was definitely on-point. The crime scene with the kid & the scene where Dex kills the Nazi guy were so nostalgic, reminded me totally of Season 1. I've been feeling Season 3 has been missing some of the charm of the other Seasons so far, but tonight has brought some of the charm back to the show. I'd definitely love to hear more of the creepy music during pivotal scenes though.

Rita is hot, but I do miss the old Rita. With the breast impants, heavy make-up, sexy clothes this season...she looks more like a high-maintanence trophy-wife type than the Rita we all grew to love.

I'm thinking the skinner is the cop Debra's supposed to rat on. He was really anxious to bust Ramon before having proof - as if he knew Ramon wasn't the skinner. But we didn't meet the Ice Truck Killer until well into the season - so it doesn't necessarily have to be a character we've already seen.

Quinn has to be a red-herring. Way too obvious if he's the skinner. Maybe it's the ^^^^^y IA chick attempting to frame him. I don't know... I just don't want it to be him. This show is smarter than that.

Or maybe it's Deb's contact (can't remember his name) he's one of the few people that have enough information to know how to get to the people. But then again it would be pretty depressing for Deb. Dating some ^^^^^^^s, a serial killer, an old guy who left and not to mention that her brother is secretly a serial killer as well--it's almost surprising she hasn't killed herself yet.

so far the seasons of Dexter have had some ironic-type conclusions & I hope Season 3 continues the trend. The seasons have similarities that you can easily compare & contrast, but they don't get repetitive and that's the key to making an overall great series.

-In Season 1, Dexter had to save Deb & he ended up killing Brian/Rudy. Deb dated the killer.

-In Season 2, Deb saves Dexter & Dexter struggled with what to do with Doakes but fate stepped in for him. Deb dated the special agent FBI guy.

So, we get to see brother & sister being there for each other, Dexter deciding his own fate once & then having fate decided for him the next season and Deb banging both sides of the law & age group.

With all of this in mind, it would be repetitive to have Quinn be the Skinner (another rogue cop in the same exact dept.) and if so, it would be repetitive for Deb to like him. I'm also hoping Miguel turns out to be a true friend & never rats Dexter out (Brian wanted Dex to kill for the wrong reason, Doakes wanted to turn Dex in).

Anton would be somewhat repetitive now as Deb is getting close to him as well. Introducing a new character would automatically draw attention from the viewers after the late approach with Rudy in Season 1. Again, the key here is to not be repetitve, be shocking & ironic and end it in a way that offers character development for Dex and Deb.

El Skutto
11-04-2008, 01:39 PM
Somehow, I don't think the future is too bright for Miguel. I can see it coming to a point where he's basically lining up victims for Dexter, until his own personal interests take precedence over "the code".

Like, asking Dexter to kill off that eyewitness that can apprently absolve that guy he prosecuted (name escapes me at the moment), but lying about the circumstances. I can see Dexter finding out about it after the fact, and deciding that friend or not, Miguel's motives aren't in line with his own.

I agree that it would be great to see Dexter finally find someone with whom he can truly be himself, but that would impact upon Dexter's constant struggle with his "dark passenger", and would suck the life out of the show. Sadly, for the show to maintain its drama, I think Miguel Prado has to die.

I hope I'm wrong about this, but I guess time will tell.

die
11-04-2008, 02:14 PM
Well, we've already seen one guy who wanted Dex to kill for the wrong reasons, remember Brian in Season 1? That's why I was saying I hope they don't get repetitive with their characters. I'm sure Miguel will have to die, ultimately leaving Dex alone with his secret, but I do hope they are only toying with the audience by making Miguel seem like he's making things personal. Miguel mentioned that the lady was crooked in the last episode, with Dex trying to develop his new code maybe he'll start looking into crooked attorneys who knowingly let killers get away with murder.

and then Dexter will be busy as hell for the next 2 seasons.:D

Just something that I was thinking...

Since, they recently brought back to light the fact that Dex killed his own brother, anybody think that it's possible that there may be a showdown between the Prado brothers with Dexter in the middle?

Ramone is The Skinner & he kills Miguel, then Dex kills Ramone or maybe it's the other way around & Miguel is the Skinner & Ramone kills him? It could just be more of a set-up for Dex to reveal that he killed Miguel's little brother with a compare & contrast of him killing his own brother.

Looks like the Skinner is a minor character. The whole the thing with miguel is about to implode. What do think about the end ? I'm not sure if he was there to murder. Could be an affair? Could be planning to murder her later though. I love this show:love:cut

They've been setting it up to look like the attorney and LaGuerta are going to have an affair.:naughty:banana I'm more inclined to say Miguel kills her (or attempts to) versus him having an affair with her.

Excellent episode tonight! The writing is so good.

It was great when Dex realized that Miguel gave Rita the same line of bs he gave him. And the shirt... I loved the little freak-out fantasy. Miguel is definitely a lot slyer than he appeared to be. I can't wait to see what happens next.

And last week's preview did give too much away. I didn't watch the one for next week.

It looks like Miguel is able to out-think Dexter. I'm sure Dex will try and play games and outmaneuver him for the next couple of episodes, but to win this he's ultimately going to have to rely on his feral instincts as a killer... which may be the only area where he has an advantage.

Great season.

I still have a strong feeling that Miguel has not only controlled Dexter but the Skinner and his younger brother to do his killing for him. The story has to come back to why Miguel's brother was trying to kill Freebo. Great episode still full of amazing surprises.

Darklord Dave

I thought the younger brother was just a crack head and was trying to get away with drugs without paying. Although it would be a cool twist if the brother was acting under Miguel's instructions.

Definitely a great show - the fantasy freak-out was so perfect. And now we see Dexter with a purpose - and very driven - something different from how he's usually depicted.

Smits is the man. It's been cool to see how the fans have reacted to him, one minute you think he's cool & the next you want to see him dead. It's been back & forth all season. I know I figured he would turn out to be a good guy in the end, it's nice to have a show lead you down a certain path & then end up surprising you in the end. The Miguel-Dexter story has also brought out some interesting reactions from Dexter that we're not used to seeing. Dexter's facial reactions & inner thoughts have really run the full course of emotions this season.

Miguel doesn't know enough about Dexter to connect him with the Bay Harbor Butcher, all he knows is that he has killed people that he believes deserve to be killed, there's nothing about his process that was known to be the BHB and Miguel doesn't know of how he gets rid of the bodies other than burying them in a grave.

In all honesty though the scenes between dex & miguel have been electric. All credit to smits & hall, two great actors

Obviously Miguel believed him about using the graves, since that's what he tried to do.

2 episodes left & here are my predictions...

I'm thinking Dexter will probably kill King. Laguerta or possibly even Ramon will end up killing Miguel. Deb will end up as "best man". Maybe Dexter & Ramon will end up being friends in the end & possibly Ramon will return next season (either that, or Ramon will end up as a Doakes type of character & end up suspecting Dexter). It's hard to believe they would not have any type of storyline involvement for Ramon planned.

I'll bet Dexter being "kidnapped" has to do with the bachelor party & Miguel is probably involved due to being the best man. Sounds like a mind game to me, imagine Dexter coming out of the trunk & attacking Miguel only to realize there's a party with a bunch of people there.

this is an awesome show.

Miguel being taken out this week was a classic move. Now Ramon and King will be the main evils. I can see king coming back next season and being taken out in the premiere. My prediction:
Dexter will frame King for Miguel by getting king to do something incriminating since Ramon will be on Dexters tail and then he will use Ramon to take King out. The phone booth will link King to Miguel and then Ramon will back off.

King tortures people to find out about Freebo, so there would be no reason for him to skin Miguel. The strangling is his signature, so it still points to him.

The phone message was just for Miguel, so La Guerta wouldn't be expecting Dexter and he would have erased it afterward. And no one will be looking for anyone but King for the murder, so Dexter doesn't need an alibi.

Great season. And yes, seasons one and two were better. But after season 2 (The best one) the standard was set so high, I think it would be impossible to reach those heights again. In a way, episode 11 was the payoff and episode 12 tied the loose ends. Loved the way King met his end, and then took the plunge in front of the car. What will happen in season 4? Who knows? But Debora might find out that Dexter's brother is the ice truck killer. Plus, Dexter is going to be a dad so that should be a good story continuation.

if the series ever ends then IMO it'll end with Debs taking down Dex

(they planted the seed for debs to find out about dex mom, maybe future animosity between them?)

No Next season Dexter is going after Ramon. Like Ramon said, he has the darkness not Miguel. Miguel was a fraud. Dexter will link Ramon to the death of the defense attorney. Just my opinion though. Either that or they will concentrate on Dexter doing his thing without getting caught by Rita. It's going to be a great next season though. i thought this last episode was a little anticlimactic though. King taking a drop and Dex slipping out the window. I expected a little more.

I don't think we'll see Ramon again. Like Dex said: "You don't always have to destroy a wounded animal. Sometimes you just remove the thorn."

I thought the finale was great. It was weird that everything did end on a happy note for the most part. I was just hoping for more closure on Quinn. It seemed like there was build up to something, but it didn't happen. I guess we'll find out more next season.

That's what's great about this series, each season is pretty complete in itself. The characters continue to grow and change but there aren't any plot lines left hanging. I think we've seen the last of Ramon and they'll probably some way to lose Miguel's wife too.

No Miguels wife is going to be important since she is Rita's only friend and employer. Not sure what they have in store for us next season though. I think we will see Ramon again to some extent. Things seem to come back to bite Dex when he thinks they are taken care of.

I do think this season definitely lacked some of the charm and polish of the other 2 seasons. The music was so epic during the other seasons, especially in Season 1. The music ALWAYS set the mood, it was more of an afterthought this season. The voiceovers weren't as "mood setting" as before either, there seemed to be alot of one-liners for the most part. The best parts of this season to me were the scenes with Dexter & Harry though, those were the best of all the seasons to me. (it was cool how they ditched the flashbacks for this season)


I think they resolved Dexter vs The Skinner way too quickly, it had shades of greatness but it wasn't given enough time. I also think there was some build-up to things with not enough payoff. The whole Yuki and Quinn thing was given alot of attention and then just dropped. The idea of Dexter abandoning the code was another idea that never went anywhere. They never really dealt with the fact that Dexter killed outside the code one minute & followed the code perfectly the rest of the season. Also, Miguel should've definitely suspected Dexter as the Bay Harbor Butcher, that should've been explored in some way. I figured for sure Miguel would threaten to go to LaGuerta to turn her against Dexter & clear Doakes, it seemed like the perfect set-up for that.


Who knows... Maybe next season there will be some closure to alot of these things.

I have a feeling there will be a 99% chance that in season 4 Dexter will have a completely new story. I doubt anything will be carried over except Deb finding out who Dexter's Mother is ,Rita will probably be about 8 months pregnant.
And Yuki and Quinn story might continue. Remember season 1's story of when Dokes shot that guy. It did not seem to go anywhere but came back in season 2. Check out Michael C Hall's take on Season 3 and what might happen in Season 4.

I still say that in Season 4, Dexter will realize that Oscar Prado didn't fit Harry's Code, so since Dexter is back following the code... Dexter will have to kill himself.

Season 5 will be completely about Cody & Astor who become killers themselves.:lol

Seriously though, I'm wondering if they'll continue with the Quinn & Yuki thing next season? I was wondering if maybe it was all an undercover thing and Quinn was working with Internal Affairs. Maybe somebody in IA doesn't believe Doakes was the Bay Harbor Butcher (maybe they have some evidence) & they are trying to infiltrate the dept. to catch the real killer.

I'd just hate to think they did all that set-up work for a storyline that just dies off. It seems like one of those things that has been left open for a future reveal.

Here is some Info on Dexter season 4
Season 4 premieres September 27, 2009. John Lithgow has been confirmed to join the cast of Dexter for season 4. 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 threes, 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

That makes a lot of sense. I'm wondering if he will be married to a woman too. Since Dexter just got married, I'm curious as to see how they handle the parallel of Dexter's life to Lithgow's life. Perhaps Dexter will learn that he can hold off of killings for special times lest he get caught. Can't wait for this season AND Keith Carradine is back :rock:rock:rock:rock

Who knows... Maybe next season there will be some closure to alot of these things.



Add in the fact that it is very important to maintain the Dexter/Deb relationship, it's essential to the story. Season 3 didn't do a very good job of reminding the audience about the importance of that part of the story.

I'm just saying, it didn't live up to the previous 2 seasons. Seasons 1 & 2 had dramatic endings that left fans in awe & begging for more. They wrapped season 3 up so fast and final that it seemed more like a series finale than a season finale. You got the feeling the whole show was done.



as for Dexter Season 4 episode 1 "Living The Dream"....

Forget torrent sites, if you just type what I wrote above in google, the first result will take you right to it.

I wasn't really pumped for Season 4 until I saw that Lithgow was playing a killer. In Episode 1 or Season 4, he did not disappoint! Can't wait to see what happens next.

And on the one night he can potentially catch up on his sleep, she decides it's time to get kinky. I kinda wish ol' Dexter would grow a pair instead of bending to her every wish.

I thought the same thing. But Dexter is trying to live the simple life but it's his dark passenger that messes everything up. He could have been sleeping when he was out stalking the killer at the bar. So it's not all Rita's fault. She stays home during the day with the baby while Dexter is at work or on call since he works in homicide.

Lithgow is creepy and he is going to get creepier. I think baby Dexter is going to get to kill Lithgow in the end.

I can agree with that. I thought the Batista/LaGuerta fling was stupid from the moment I saw it. I really hope they don't stretch it out any further.

I thought the second episode of season 4 was brilliant.
The whole part about Dexter trying to remember what he did with Benny Gomez was Dexter at it's finest.
In fact everything apart from maybe the Batista, LaGuerta story is on top form.

Agree with all that it's one of the best shows on tv i'm loving it and can't wait for next week. :rock

It's definitely in the top three of shows that I currently watch. My only gripe against the show is his sister Deb. I seriously cannot stand the character and wish she'd be written out of the show at some point.

And while Lundy is definitely a potential future victim of the Trinity Killer, I'm also starting to suspect that Dexter will have to deal with Quinn at some point or another.

She's just so inconsistent. She's supposed to be a police officer, and good enough to make Detective, and yet she acts like a 13-year old girl where men are concerned. All the drama that surrounds that character comes as a result of her own immature actions.

I kind of like the romance between the Lt. and Angel. Not sure if the writers had planned on doing this earlier in the series, but if you go back and watch the earlier seasons, you can see that both LaGuerta and Batista have a good rapport. Maybe it's the common Latino background (I can't remember, was ever mentioned that Angel is of Cuban heritage, too?). Maria has always used the the proper Spanish pronuciation whenever she's addressed Angel by his first name.

I like Deb's character. I like that she's foul-mouthed and brash, but I think it's a front to hide her insecurities. She also has some daddy issues as well; Harry was always there, but he spent more time with Dexter.

One of the reasons that I like the series so much is because all of the secondary characters are fleshed out and written so well.

And yes, I also think Lundy dies this season, if only because it's a tidy way to deal with his character. Remember, he was the FBI's best serial killer profiler, and at the end of season 2, he still wasn't convinced that Dokes was the Bay Harbor Butcher. I think he'll find out at the of this season some how that Dexter was/is the Bay Harbor Butcher (though of course Dexter wouldn't refer to himself as such), but die before he can tell anyone...or he'll carry the secret to the grave because he'll realize what Dexter is doing is the lesser of two evils.

Dexter is definitely one of the best shows out there. Somewhat off topic, but almost all the Showtime series are fantastic and must sees for me: Dexter, Weeds, Nurse Jackie, The United States of Tera. The first season of Californication was well-written and funny as well, but I haven't had a chance to watch any other seasons after that.

So you're pretty much saying that she's a woman........

Agreed. She reminds me of most of the girls you see on campus.

Lol....not all professional women act like that. Most of the ones I've worked with conducted themselves the proper way.

I completely agree. I don't see how she has many lines on the network channels when they rerun the show. All she does is cuss. I thought that one of the things holding her back from getting detective was her mouth, but they must have let that go.

1. I like Deborah, yes she was annoying, but after the Ice truck killer she became more sympathetic to me.
2. Michael C Hall, co-executive producer and star of the show is married to her in real life, so I don't see her leaving the show anytime soon.

Its a great show, but i agree she needs to stop acting 13 regarding relationships. She needs to eat some damn food.....and we need way more Darla nudity!
