Well I used search and a lot of these came up. So I decide to make an Offical one so we can keep it all in one spot, Hope thats cool with everyone.

Ok So Season 4 ended on Sunday, and I must say it was awesome, they truly know how to leave you with a cliff hanger of the season.

I don't want to say too much more about it in case some people havn't seen it yet. Thoughts anyone?

I just picked up this show a month ago.
I have to say i had some trouble getting into it but after the 3rd episode of season one i was an addict.
Now i'am in episode 4 of season 3, watching a minimum of 1 episode a day, and i have to say this is one of the best shows ever.

I don't think i will be following this thread cause i don't wanna see any spoilers....

The end of season 4 blew my mind. I love this show, it's so dark and intelligent (something you don't see often on TV, nevermind US TV :D)

My favorite show of all time. The ending to this season was a complete shock. If you rewind to about 5-10 minutes before the ending and listen to what Trinity was saying to Dexter it has a completely different meaning than the jibberish i thought it was...

Cant beleive we have to wait a year to find out what the hells going to happen! Im hoping the ending was a dream... Ugh.

Whats your favorite season?

This was arguably the best cliffhanger finale that I have ever seen. Absolutely blew my mind! I cannot wait to see where the writers go from here! Excellent show. One of my favorites on television.

Also, I think John Lithgow (spelling?), deserves an award for his performance as the creepy, emotionless Trinity killer.

This season was a big step down, to me at least. Lithgow's performance was amazing, but the writing has really fallen off. This show has never been of the same caliber as say the Sopranos or Six Feet Under, but I thought they were trying to be somewhere closer to that level of television. Instead it seems like they are becoming more satisfied with mundane twists and iffy plot devices. This show is really closer to things like 24 or Lost in terms of quality at this point. I will keep watching, but I won't expect to be intellectually stimulated or to be faced with anything of real substance, but instead to be simply mildly entertained.

I thought this season was a massive step-up. I do agree about Lithgow though. He nailed every single aspect of this character and brought him to life. Outstanding acting.

I Think think every season just gets better and better. Though the only season I didn't care much for was the second with the whole Lila thing. It kinda seemed outa character for Dex. But I can't wait for next season. I'm watching Californiacation right now to hold me over, but the way I watch stuff it will not last long. I finished season 1 in one night.

I think the person who really deserves an award this season is Jen Carpenter(Debra Morgan). She really came into her own this season and I found every scene she was in was truly captivating, her breakdown mid season when she was in the parking lot with Dexter is when I really started to notice how good the season was for her. Great ending to a very meh season....it's unfortunate that Dexter will never again reach the standard it set in season one, it appears they set the bar to high and since then they've held up mildly disappointing seasons with (sometimes) great endings.

Up to episode 5 or 6 now. Holy shit is this season good. Malkovich gives me the creeps and I was as shocked as Dexter to see he has a family. Debra breaking down like that really made me feel for her, she's gotten a lot of shit over the years.

The wife and I are lovin some Dexter we just discovered it on Netflix not long ago so we are only the 2nd disc of season 3. So I can't comment or visit this thread again so I don't have to worry about finding out too much LOL. Just wanted to stop by and give Dexter and Netflix a shout out. Awesome show.

The bar was set really high but I think that they seem to keep up that bar. I think the writers and actors do a wonderful job in this show the acting is top-notch. They deserve more awards. I hope they eventually come out with a movie I would love to see a full length movie with Dex.

Personally I found season 4 very drawn out compared to some of the other ones, just wasnt as much going on in comparison to the ice truck killer season. The last episodes def pulled it together though which was a nice touch. It kind of makes me wonder if this will stop with him getting out of the game or if this will flip the switch and make him become the dark passenger full time

I can't wait for this to come out on DVD. I no longer have showtime so after the first season I've had to wait for it to come out on DVD to watch it. ARRRRGGGHHH!!! I have no patience. I'm probably going to end up rewatching the previous three because four probably won't be on DVD for a while and I don't want to wait another couple months to watch more of the show.

On another note, glad to see a Nietzsche quotation in your sig MelangeAddict. Hats off to you man.;)

I <3 Dexter, I defiantly agree with Empire magazine that it is the 30th best TV series to date.

I have only seen season's 1-2 and I have heard a rumor that they are trying to ban it out here for some reason.

I have been thinking of watching Dexter for a while now but every time I finish a series I tend to go with another series rather then Dexter.

I watch: 24, Lost, Supernatural, Smallville, Chuck, Heroes to name a few of those with action but I'm wondering how Dexter compares to these series? I'm hoping to run through Entourage before pretty much 20 series restart in January that I watch and so I'm not sure whether it worth also trying out Dexter but just looking for a few comparisons and opinions.

Dexter is an amazing series. Very interesting characters, you won't see any of twists coming, well, maybe a few, but nothing is cliche, and everything has shades of gray. It's hilarious at times, sad at others, and almost all of time you'll be at the edge of your seat.

It's one of the few series that does everything right. Oh, and it's not an ABC. Which is a plus. :)

Still a few episodes from the end but holy shit.
Lithgow is great as Trinity and even scarier losing his mask of normalcy.
Elliot might want to move away.
Kind of a shock about the reporter.

Ok I watch or watched most of those shows and Dexter is by far the best. Where most shows like Heroes start to go down hill Dexter stays solid. Though Chuck only has two seasons and now going on a third after it got canceled I'm very excited to see what they have planned next for Chuck. Sorry for that plug, I just like Chuck. But Dexter is awsome watch it, you won't regret it.

See I have heard alot of mixed opinions about Dexter and thats why I was asking but I think I will have to check it out soon.

As for Chuck, after the ending of season 2 I can only see season 3 being pretty awesome although there wont be much more 'stay in the car Chuck' and so alot will change but I'm looking forward to it anyway.

I will start watching Dexter soon anyway, hopefully also get up to date with it before every season restarts in around a week.

Right well after posting this and reading replies I got around to watching Entourage 1-6 then Dexter 1-4 over the past week and after 2 eps of getting used to it I loved it!

Will warn you now I'm going to ramble on for a while lol!

Spoilers here for all seasons

I thought season 1 was great in the end and the Ice truck killer story expanded throughout which kept the season alive and interesting. A very good get to know the background season for sure and finding out about Dexter's real personality and lack of any human feelings lol.

I also didnt care much for the Lila role in season 2 but I thought season 2 was pretty amazing in the times where you honestly didnt know what could happen to let Dex get away with it. Sgt. Doakes was awesome throughout although a pain in the ass of course lol and the whole 'Bay harbour butcher' story could be intense at times keeping you thinking how can he get away with this, which was something that wasnt felt as much in the first season I didnt think.

I saw season 3 as a bit of a 2 part series with the Miguel and Skinner stories. I felt Miguels end was inevitable from quite a way into the season although the writers were clearly trying to make out that Dexter was going to change him etc. Then for me when the skinner came into it a bit more I thought it was clear he would be framed for the killing of Miguel etc like Doakes was framed for Dex's killing in Season 2.

Season 4 was awesome although with 2-3 episodes left I felt it was just going to be the same old ending where Dex frames or portrays a suicide to get away with it so it was good to see him end the season with with the body parts ocean drop lol. Trinity was an awesome serial killer and his story allowed alot of roles to be brought into play that were played well. The cycle was also very good and other then the hammer kill on the male the kills were very wierd and wrong shall we say which clearly had background and reason.

Season 4 Ending thoughts

The ending to Season 4 is by far the most speachless ending any TV show I have seen has produced and I have seen far too many to name them all thats for sure.

I was watching the end of the episode and wondering why it was showing Dexter returning to his house. Thinking when he sat down etc that there could be a new serial killer in the house etc or someone that knows about him that builds the next season. Then I thought maybe as the message said Rita was home she's gonna suprise him or maybe the serial killer will have her hostage and Dexter will kill them and kinda reveal the real him to Rita.

Anyway got me thinking about when she came back to the house, if she took a cab, wierd how she would come into the house for ID and bring in Harrison and I guess also tell the cab driver that she would call another rather then have them wait outside. Then also thinking that Trinity probably wouldnt have expected her to come back like he had with the first bathtub victim when he was naked and ready lol, so a few things I thought about.

Didnt like how after 30 years of doing the cycle of killing he would change it to kill a wife with 3 kids when it was usually 2 to probably get back at Dexter but then again maybe as the kidnapped child got away alive he didnt care about the cycle :confused:

Season 4 left alot to think about anyway. How will the next season start, will we see what Trinity actually did, what will happen with the kids as Dexter cant surely handle the job, the dark passenger and 3 kids. Feelings or not this will surely fuck him up even m ore lol.

Anyway alot of people seem to think the ending is a cliffhanger for a reason, such as a dream or something but there hasnt been something like that before so I doubt it.

Sure this thread will some more discussion now anyway.

Roll on September 26th :mad::p

You don't have to wait for it. Go to this website:

http://www.watch-90210-online-free.com/Watch-TV-Shows-Online.html

Hit CTRL+F and type in Dexter. I watched every season in a single month. It's probably my favourite show of all time.

Also, Daredevil

I think Rita is actually dead. Arthur was leaving and he took all o his money. Everything changed for him and he needed to get redemption somehow on Dexter. At first, I thought it was a dream, but I can see her actually being dead. It makes perfect sense. His "dark passenger" has to somehow bring to surface his worst fear, which is the destruction of his family. Now, like him, his son is born from blood.

03-14-2010, 11:51 AM
Yeah I think either way theres alot of room and sense to be built upon from either dream or reality whatever the writer's choose to move on from.

I just can't wait for the new season but like with Entourage, the wait is far too long :(

Rita won't be coming back like Harry did. Almost positive she won't be. She doesn't know about Dexter's ways and it wouldn't serve any point to have her come back.

Anyone else think that Cody is alot like Dexter?

1. He lives with a different father

2. Some scenes that can be interpreted that he is like Dexter. Can't remember some of them but if you go back and look you can definitley see some of these.

Kind of, sort of. Harrison will be more of Dexter's protege than Cody, I think, because Cody wasn't born of blood. It makes no sense to make Cody like Dexter. Cody's most traumatic experience was his mom being abused, but Dexter witnessed his mother being chopped to pieces by a chainsaw. I'd be quite surprised if Cody became like Dexter because that simply downplays the whole "blood" theme that's so dominant in the show. Also, Cody isn't a psychopath and is capable of feeling emotions unlike Dexter. Dexter can, sometimes, feel emotions it seems like it, but he still refers to people as humans and things of that nature.

I think it would be better if Rita didn't come back like Harry has to Dexter but I think that if she is actually dead then she will as she will be the good in Dexter's life telling him to do right where as Harry serves as his dark passenger influencing his work.

As said I think Cody's story just played out whilst their story went along and if he and his sister (Forgotten her name) continue to feature in Dexter they will only serve as a problem to his work but also a reason for him to be more human.

In the second book he goes fishing with Cody and little Cody enjoys killing the fish, among other things. They both had traumatic childhoods etc. Dexter is Cody's Harry.
In the third book, Dexter teaches Astor and Cody the code and brings them to a kill. I kinda wish they had that in the show. The reasoning was that Paul was so violent that he drew out their dark passenger, and they killed the neighbor's dog, stabbed fish, etc. But I don't think they would carry that over into the show. My guess is that season 5 will jump ahead kind of like season 4(3 ended with Rita pregnant and them discussing homes, and then 4 suddenly had Harrison born and them already fitted into their new home). Dexter will find out that Harrison has a passenger, and teach him the code. This would be smart because it would allow the producers some breathing room, since they can continue the show with Harrison if the Dexter story gets a little overused. Just a guess.

One of my favourite shows. I've recommended this show to almost everyone I know, and most of them like it as well. I'm eagerly awaiting season 5 to see the aftermath of the season 4 finale.

Dark Reality
04-22-2010, 02:51 AM
I love the show, and had the ending of season 4 spoiled for me via the official Dexter page on Facebook. Not how, but the very basic what. Still, it's been blocked, and I enjoyed the hell out of the season. Up until the end, I kept thinking, it's gotta be wrong, no way he had time, etc. So I believe I got most of the impact.

As for the kids, Cody seems quiet but square, but Astor seems like she could grow into a heartless killer. That girl is just cold, like Dexter, in many ways. Like looks, they both look *almost* normal but there's something else. She's too cold for a girl her age, and he's too quiet. They're both socially backwards. Still not sure how they'll be handled. They're Dexter's legally, though, not sure about specific FL laws, but since their biological parents have both passed on, and Dexter married their mother, unless their grandparents or an aunt/uncle adopt them, they're his. If the writers take them out like that, I'll be hugely disappointed, as having a family, that third side of Dexter (after blood-spatter analyst and serial killer) really helped define the show.

I believe season 4 is the best yet. The first was pretty good, but seasons 2 and 3, while great, fall short of 1 and 4 for various reasons (IMO).

God I can't wait for season 5!! Been reading the books but the 3rd book just seems to make me not want to read them anymore it's not bad it's just not capturing my interest as much as the show.

Only a few months to go.

It'll be better towards the end, the whole voodoo/scared dark passenger isn't really interesting but the questions Dexter asks himself are. Just continue reading and start the 4th book, that one is good.

I just recently got into this show and I have to say it's excellent. Luckily FX are show the first 3 seasons back to back before showing 4 (in the UK) so I should be fully up to date before long. I've just finished watching season 1.

I'm going to avoid reading the thread (sorry, I'm sure it's amazing guys) until I get passed Season 1, as I was already spoiled by simply trying to find out who played Doakes (I thought it was Sticky Fingaz who played Blade in the series, but I was wrong...Erik King) and I'm wishing I could erase memories like you could erase files on a computer.

I don't know how to do the spoiler thing...but...yeah, I'm on episode 7 of the First Season and I love this series. Well actually I think passed Episode 7, I'm watching this over Netflix instant play and it's amazing...I think I know who the Icetruck Killer really is (I remember stuff I see from earlier episodes and it didn't match the profile for...) but I'll just have to sit here and wait =D

Amazing series, I can't tell you guys how much Dexter reminds me of Light Yagami and somewhat like Jigsaw, but the intelligence he has reminds me of Light so much more. Of course, from what I could tell, he's not nearly as psycho as Light was from Death Note...at least he doesn't view himself as a God, he's just taking out the Trash...one killer at a time.

Is it sad that serial killers inspire me? Not to kill! It's just their attitudes and how they think, I prefer to feel that way rather than some mass-crowd idiot that listens to today's music and forgets yesterday's as if it never existed. Would I kill someone? Well...*hears the sirens already* I kid ^_^...o_O gotta be careful what you say, never know who is going to take you seriously...

No I understand where you are coming from. I think Dexter is a league all in his own. And its his personality that is inspiring that he never doubts himself. And he never condones what he does it just something he must do. And like you said, he's just taking out the trash.

Interesting comments on it not being Trinity. I forget the exact words since it's been awhile since last season's finale but remember Trinity making some remarks while wrapped up on Dexter's table that had me thinking right away that he'd done something to Dexter's family.

Looking forward to this season more than any other premier save for maybe the series premier of the Walking Dead. The ending to last season has to be the best season finale I can think of. The ending to a certain video game definitely had the same shock value.

Reminds me a lot of season 2 where he had Doaks breathing down his back the entire time.

That is to say that this season looks like he won't have a rival killer to go up against, just a tough time picking up the pieces of his life. Good stuff though.

I'm kinda worried in the long run, to be honest. There's been a changing of the guard behind the scenes and I'm not sure how it'll effect the series. Can't remember who left or who stayed in the production crew, but let's hope they keep Dex moving in the right direction.

I'm so close to being able to join you guys in a discussion! ^_^ I need to get Showtime but I'm catching up with Season 4 now (I'm on...episoide 4 or 5 now, need to work but I'll get back to it).



I've heard things about Quinn and Dexter's relationship but...from what I've seen, it's a lot of Dexter's fault in the matter! He's playing the opposite of Doakes, who was ALWAYS on Dexter's ass...but Quinn is trying to be friendly, chummy and everything else (despite the fact that he stole a bit of money)...I'd go with it. Seems like Dexter is the cause of this downfall...so far at least, I don't know what he's going to do later in this season but A LOT of people aren't happy with him...I still like him =P just as I liked Doakes. I feel a bit of loss with the death of Miguel last season...=/...but John Lithgow is showing how amazing he is.

You know who I want to see on Dexter? The guy who played Giles in Buffy and Nathan in Repo: The Genetic Opera. I really liked his character and John Lithgow keeps reminding me of him...though I must say I don't like looking at Lithgow's naked body ;>_> I'm not gay but I'd rather look at the other guy during those scenes...

I'm actually liking Quinn a whole lot more, I feel like he's really going to mess around with Dexter. ( I really cracked up, with his response to Batista's question about money)

I didn't like Quinn when he first showed up. I wasn't sure what they wanted to do with the guy and I see now they were setting up the previous season to take the place of Dokes.

He's tolerable now because he's at ends with Dex, but I'm still not sold on him.

Hope it isn't the last of Aster and Cody, they seem to make an impact on Dex which is making him seem and feel human, if only a little.

TVthePunisher

Doubt it Lila wasn't Irish. I think she is crazy though.

Yeah, she was from the UK. But now that I've finally caught up (well, mostly...I'm "waiting" on Episode 4 if ya know what I mean...) I don't have to worry about spoilers!

Wow oh wow...this series is one of few that keeps it moving while keeping it fresh. I always saw Dexter as the opposite of Death Note's Light Yagami and there are so many things that set them apart...and personally, I would have loved to see Light on Dexter's table (for him to then go into monologue about justice...and the difference between Dexter's and Light's...oooooh...).

Dexter (starting out):

- Cold, most emotions were faked to camoflauge himself within society.

- Was "born" a killer, having witnessed a tragedy at a young age and honed his craft to match it.

- Follows a code that justifies his kills based on people who commit murder for their own gain, thus evil people.

Light (starting out):

- Teenage boy living a upper-middleclass lifestyle without a care in the world. He was mainly just "bored" with normal life

- Was not "born" a killer and never witnessed any tragedies that really affected him (we can debate this later if you like).

- Originally followed a rule of killing criminals, though he quickly left this behind to kill even petty criminals and later...innocents that got in his way. Something Dexter would never do, despite his situation with Sergeant James Doakes in the 1st and 2nd season...he only intended to frame him (and actually, before his turnaround, was going to let Doakes go so he could turn himself in).

Dexter (as he progressed):

- Started to gain actual emotions, though because he's lived some odd 30 years having lost touch with "humanity" like other people...he has to analyze these feelings. He has moved from a person that faked everything to feelings of caring for his foster sister Deb, to feeling remorse for the death of his brother Brian Moser, to anger when someone threatened his loved ones (Rita, Astor, Cody), feeling love and affection for Rita, wanting to father three children...and expresses the feeling of betrayel when Miguel Prado tries to take the "craft" and use it as he wills.

- He tries to supress the "Dark Passenger", thus moving slowly but surely step by step down the ladder that is his Dark Passenger....until somewhere, he might hit the bottom and be rid of it in the future.

- His code has come into jeapordy multiple times, mainly from instances where there is "rehandling of a situation" with multiple killers, changing his ritual to suit an everchanging problem, killing an innocent man (whom he thought was guilty but it was only his assistent), and even breaking his code entirely to brutally slaughter a man who insulted his wife's memory during a period of uncertainty in his life.

Light (as he progressed):

- Has put any attempt at emotions on the back burner and rather than learn them like Dexter, he wishes to just fake them to suit his own goals. However, he becomes more and more drunk with power and sentences anyone to death that might stop his path to becoming a God. Rage is a strong factor when he might lose and insanity finally settles in when confronted.

- In no way does Light try to hold back his own "Dark Passenger", rather he denies that he is a serial killer and instead embraces the power of being a God. He starts out from a teenage boy curious about a book to a murderous tyrant edging on world domination.

- Whenever faced with a situation where someone was in his way, he'd write their life away and use plot after plot to insure his victory. Because of his high intelligence, he was able to see multiple steps ahead and thus had to make very little changes to his plans. Ultimately his only failure was due to arrogance and trying to juggle too many balls (no pun intended) at once, rather than take direct action which could have saved him his life.

Phew...anyways, I just hope Dexter doesn't end up like Light.

Wow did I love Trinity's character, despite the fact that after watching him in action he is not someone that can change his ways...and is far too enveloped in his past to ever escape it. The violent tendecies towards his family was sign enough for me to see that he needed to be dealt with...and after multiple complications, he was finally taken care of. But the question is...did he really kill Rita? He was saying Debora Morgan the last time he was in that house...over and over...but did he really, honestly kill Rita? Only time will tell...but I do not think it was Trinity...

Out of all the Main Antagonists (Brian Moser, Lila Bitchtwat, Miguel Prado and Arthur Mitchell) and then the central antagonists (Sergeant James Doakes, George King, and Quinn...god, I can't remember his full name)....I only hated one. Lila. I cannot stand this character...she turned Dexter into an asshole (sorry fans, I'm a fan of the series but...I did not like what Dexter was doing to Rita and the kids by spending time with that whore) and she was the one character I wanted to die more than any other. Crazy, pyromaniac...sure she wasn't a Serial Killer like The Ice Truck Killer, The Skinner and Trinity...but she was a major problem and ultimately too dangerous to be kept alive. Plus she killed Doakes...one of my favorite characters (I like those "I'MA KICK YO ASS" guys).

Anyways...this show...I'd go more on about it but then someone would call me crazy if I'm using it to model certain aspects of my life. No no...not the serial killing, rather Dexter's emotional state. How he deals with situations...he's a good role model and for someone like me, who is hardly in touch with emotions, it helps. I don't need a shrink to pick my brain...I'd rather work it out on my own.

EDIT: I'd also like to add that I love Quinn's character and though he's SOMEWHAT following the Doakes trail, he is isn't nearly as bad. Doakes obsessed over it, made it his priority...Quinn's just suspicious. And in a way, it kind of is Dexter's fault for blowing him off from the beginning (he did it at least twice before the whole "moneysnatching" ordeal).

I just uh...obtained the soundtracks (for Seasons 2, 3 and 4 apparently) and wow...I am in love with Trinity's theme (loved it first time I heard it anyways) and boy do I love the spanish music in this show ;>_>




Oh wow, so apparently Boyd wasn't the only one...there's more, possibly a group of about 2 or 3 more. It seems like they may be the main antagonists for this series...you know, I've been wondering when a group would come into play. It has been individual serial killers aside from a few exceptions, such as the couple in Season 1 but a group is a lot harder to take down than a single man. I'm sure they'll act soon enough, knowing that one of their own is dead...or perhaps he was just a lowlife in their organization and they'll treat it as if his death was a blessing in disguise...yet one member (likely the leader) will still feel it was a transgression.

Why do I have a feeling that the "Take It Now" is far more important than just for Boyd? Maybe every member listens to those CDs...hell, maybe the guy on the CD package itself...Jordan Chase. Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself but...this could be a cult that Dexter's facing now. Also there's that one guy, the one with the machete that Deb saw. I think he's more like what George King was in the 3rd season rather than the main antagonist, but we'll see later ya know?

Ya know what...I'll start talking outside the spoilers now. Just realize that everything in that spoiler was from the most recent episode.

So...what are your guy's opinions on the "other people" that Lumen mentioned?

But that would be too easy.....

Miguel route eh? Seems like a very different situation to me. But I am happy to see (from the preview for the next episode) how things are turning out =D. I'm leaning on the bad guys for this season being of course the people that did this to her and maybe Jordan Chase (apparently sources claim the actor for at least 6 episodes this season...whether that means by voice or physical appearance is uncertain).

I think the same thing regarding the Cd's. A cult possibly, led by the guy on the cover.

Should be good.

I also think that Lumen (which means "Light", let's remember- Light versus Dexter's Dark Passenger) has a chance to be good or bad. The way she looks like she'll sick Dex on the guys might corrupt her. Who knows.

The main theme for this season is coming around though.

Dex's twisted side was baptized in blood.
His son (who supposedly too young to understand) might still turn out like him.
And now Lumen, much older than both when she saw her terrors, might get warped into it.

Well I've started up a contribute spree of my own on the Dexter Wikia. Working on my pet project right now, The Kill Guide. Starting out nicely, obviously going to take work...need all the family information, then the victims is what really is going to take some legwork (got to seep through a lot of episodes for that info) and then I'll add pictures in there somewhere.

EDIT: For anyone without Showtime and who doesn't mind some slight-editing to Dexter, check out the On Demand service (if you have something like Time Warner or whatever). You can watch the first episode of Season 5 for FREE on there where they only take out the F words and Quinn's...ass. ;>_> they blur it and some "boobs" seen in photos from a recap of the past season.

Ya I remember. Though Miguel was hot headed and didn't really see Dexter as his superior/Teacher. He was also only in to get get his own way, not because he needed it like Dexter.
Lumen doesn't give off the same vibe. Plus if Dexter may have been more willing to open up and really teach Miguel the code things may have been different. Anyways I think Lumen has become something of a need, more than a want like Miguel.

Also thanks about the info on Californiacation starting.

Yes, there are some key differences between Miguel Prado and Lumen Ann Pierce.

Miguel: As you said, a hot-headed individual that while devastated by his brother Oscar's death, was still out for his own gain rather than anything else. This is NOT why Dexter kills people, he focuses his intent on killing evil people to control both his dark passenger and rid the world of people who could kill again (which is why Miguel quickly became a target). Miguel on the other hand wants nothing more than to get rid of someone that is a thorn in his ass, such as Ellen Wolf. After he killed her, Maria Laguerta was to be his next target due to her looking up info on him...thus it "betrayed his trust". In all reality, Miguel Prado was a huge fascade...much like Dexter acts for the world around him. He stole a story from his brother that happened in the past, changing it around to his own "demon" and tricked Dexter into making him believe that he was just like him...thus allowing him to get his first kill. That kill is what Miguel needed to trick Dexter yet again into believing that he was just like him and thus he used this technique again (well, it can be assumed he did because of no trace evidence at Ellen's apartment) with the grave-dropping part (because that's where he believed Freebo to be).

Lumen: She was abused, tortured, possibly raped...a woman that was captured when she ran from home and ended up being tormented by these people, including Boyd Fowler. Her desire to kill is not for her own gain but to rid herself of the things that created the new her, much like Dexter killing Santos back during Season 2 (with the chainsaw, one of the three men that killed his mother). So in all reality, Lumen is just like Dexter in a different light...she's suffering badly from the torment as any touch warps her senses and makes her assume everyone is out to rape her or torture her again. Though after killing these men, could she be a danger? I think she's controllable...I think as long as Dexter finally agrees to help her out and looks INTO these people before she acts, that she'll grow into it correctly and be the success where Miguel failed.

Let's take a look at the previous four seasons:

First Season - Rival killer, Brian Moser. Kills in a similar fashion to Dexter himself except with his own unique fashion...he was an extreme danger to Debra specifically and had to be put down.

Second Season - Insane girlfriend, Lila Tournay. She wasn't a serial killer but she did kill at least two people and Doakes was innocent...despite how much of a prick he was.

Third Season - Failed pupil, Miguel Prado. He attempted to act like a student to Dexter and then warped the code to his own liking, thus it caused Dexter to put him down.

Fourth Season - Evil teacher, Arthur Mitchell. Survived for over 30 years in his serial killing streak, but Dexter learned far too quickly that Arthur (despite how much he had learned from him) was a violent animal that may have killed his innocent family in the end provided Dexter didn't stop him and he was a murderer of young boys, amongst other innocents.

Fifth Season - Unknown at the moment but it could be any of the following canidates: Jordan Chase (Take It Now guy and possible leader of a cult), Stan Liddy (slated for the remaining episodes in the season, is going to look into Dexter as a spy and maybe worse), Carlos and Marco Fuentes (the Santa Muerte Killers, though it is likely they'll be just like what George Washington King/The Skinner was in Season 3 and be Debra Morgan's antagonists, rather than Dexter's) and even Cira Manzon (while she is very reliable, she is very suspicious to me at the same time...I don't have a good feeling about her).

And of course Lumen but...I see the outcome of Season 5 as this.

Dexter eventually faces one of those enemies but Lumen has become his successful pupil and effectively, sidekick. Thus she lives at the end of the season after Jordan Chase or whoever else is killed. In Season 6, she acts as his helper while Sonya possibly still watches over Harrison...and then things get interesting. The Dark Defender and Robin? ;>_> Well we'll see where that goes...maybe Dexter will get more than one student...a whole legion to pass on his legacy to? Oh now I'm getting fanatastical...

Wow, respect for the sum up.

I also agree I don't get a good vibe from Cira, (The short cop working with Deb, right?) Something isn't right about her and those beheadings. I don't know about the legion thing though, I think Dexter likes and prefers to work alone. He does what he does to satify his Dark Passenger in the first place.

Yeah great sum up 'TVthePunisher' I agree with alot of what you said with predictions etc also but I agree with thereefernander in that I see Dexter preferably working alone.
Having said that we have seen Dexter come a very long way personally and maybe now that he is becoming more human through feelings and such he may like the challenge of trying again to teach the ways of the justice serial killer.

I would be suprised if he didn't essentially help Lumen by getting rid of those that have abused her and probably killed many others before her. I think that due to her persistance to continue to track these men down, Dex will give in and help her rather then continue to attempt to get her away from LA with the whole 'you need to be with people who love you' story.

Can't wait for tonight's ep (Tomorrow for me.) I watch about 17 shows currently each week unless on short breaks and Dexter is up there as the show I look forward to most currently.

Surprised you didn't mention Joey Quinn. Guy's probably more obsessed with Dexter than Sgt. Doakes.

It's that and the fact that Debra's past two love affairs have both died (Brian Moser and Lundy). Could see a hat trick with Quinn.

Well, once Quinn noticed that Dexter observed him take money from the safe he's been after him. The tension between them has been gradually rising. Only now after his wife died is he able to gain some ground, using the FBI, against Dexter. Not only that, but he also hired a police officer to trail him around as well.

He may not be as direct as Doakes, but he's still very obsessive.

I really hope they keep Lumen on as a regular. She fits in so well and the scenes with Dexter and Lumen in this episode were really funny. With them going back and forth at each other. I think Dexter kind of likes her, in maybe a love interest kind of way and someone now who finally gets him, and can understand and be let in on his other life. Rather than just his "day" life.

Plus the way she was talking about The Dark Passenger, got me thinking she will stay around for a while.

Plus Dex and Lumen could have a mutual hobby now, they can go and paint the town red, while the Irish Super Nanny stays home with Harrison till he is old enough to start the family business!

xI DaR3DeViL Ix

Something will happen with Quinn but it won't be Doakes 2.0 as it's already happened before and the writers said last season that Rita was killed off as they felt they needed a dramatic change to the usual Dex killing who ever and making it out of the series without a scratch.

Indeed.... finally starting to get moving..... i wonder what Lumen will be to him.
Like there was his brother, his lover, his friend, his mentor.... his... pupil maybe? I'm thinking that maybe after what she said at the end of the episode... and she seems more legit about it than Miguel

I like and agree with this in the sense of Lumen now becoming the pupil. I don't believe she will be long term in the show but more of the pupil in the series until everything is done and dusted with those that abused her.

I in a way predict the Quinn thing will arise in the last 2 episodes and by this time Dex and Lumen will have dealt with those that abused her and Lumen will look for how she can repay Dexter. In the end Lumen will repay Dex for his help by killing Quinn for Dexter as she knows Dexter does not kill people who have killed themselves etc. Possibly she will just get rid of the investigator that Quinn hired to track Dexter and so Quinn doesn't get more information but is now even more onto Dexter for the next series.

Dexter will be annoyed that she hasn't gone by his code but at the same time greatfull etc, depending on whether from now until then, he agree's or is ok in general with the Deb/Quinn relationship.

As for Matsuka, in the past 2/3 episode he has been hilarious! Previous series he has come across as this wierd guy with his jokes etc but in recent episodes he has been awesome, hopefully it will continue!

Long thing short - the people who killed people saying they were inspired by Dexter are retarted, because they killed innocents...they're just trying to get more money from lawsuits and Dexter would most likely put them on his table if he had the chance. So the idol kills the idolizers...

I haven't gotten the chance yet, I really want to. Yeah, Brian's still alive and he actually...well if you're on Book 2, I won't spoil anything from what I know but he's currently alive still even after that point (he appears in another novel after the one you're reading).

As for that character you're talking about that dies, yeah...pretty much everything that has happened so far with her is completely made by the show. Actually, after the first season, the two series split...like alternate timelines. For example, a character in one of the Dexter novels is what George Washington King (the Skinner) is based on and as for a certain character that dies in Season 2...well, you already pointed them out.

Can't call it the "best new show" because it's been out for years now.

But I finally caught up and "Everything is Illumenated" has been my fav of the season so far. Masuka's silent explanation of the murder scene only made it 10x better.

I'm really liking Julia Styles character I hope she stays on the show and they get together. And with the way the show is going with them leaning towards Harrison having a Dark Passenger of his own too, they could become a family of killers.

Dexter's finally starting to accept Lumen and this is getting interesting. Next week they're set to set up a killroom together, which is even more than what Dexter did for Miguel. Dexter was highly untrusting of Miguel for a long period of time but with Lumen...he's connected. And with Harrison meeting her, she is most likely going to kiss him (and in this show, kissing leads to sex) soon enough. I mean it's not uncommon for Dexter to see someone else (see Lila for that) other than Rita...

I do hope Lumen is in Season 6 and that Dexter as a series begins to expand upon the "Family of Serial Killers" concept that SynsterChris mentioned, the series will follow a whole new light.

I can tell you one thing - I love Jordan Chase's character. I hope he's more than just an antagonist (looking to be Season 5's main antagonist) and actually turns into a Series antagonist (a character that survives multiple seasons but can't be killed due to various problems). Right now he's sitting at a status of just about being untouchable without having that exact right...if Dexter wanted to kill him, it would cause a huge upstir because of his popularity. He's going to have to think this through...Cole Harmon isn't the only person in his way.

I'm curious about the 5th person as well...if the picture at least confirms three (Dan Mondale, Boyd Fowler and Cole Harmon), then two others are unconfirmed...one likely being Jordan Chase himself with the other still being unknown (possibly the person in the cap, who has weirdly enough a similar facial structure to Julia Stiles though obviously that's not her).

I defiantly see Dexter and Lumen relationship plausible, in the face that he can confide knowing she knows his secret, and will be less ducking and dodging as there was with Rita, which lead to his false Heroin addiction.

Like Brain never dies, Someone important to the whole series since the beginning is killed at the end of the first book, and something really interesting, happened where i'm at right now in Book #2.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS BELOW. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Not to mention that I think in the third or fourth the author hints that Dexter's Dark Passenger could actually be more than what we are told, Dokes becomes even more scary, and the kids might not have been dealing wtih Daddy beating on Mommy and them as you'd think.

He's fallen into a plothole. Besides, his brother was in the spotlight for the duration of the Santa Muerte story. Both Marco and Carlos were at Club Mayan...and it was Marco who killed Yasmin Aragon, taking a shot at Quinn (and apparently, because it was never shown, he ran off at this point). Marco is on the loose but Marco only had one ACTUAL appearance and that was at the Club...before that, he was just in a mugshot picture. Even then, you didn't see him act...all he did was stand at a railing, then sit down talking in the background like some Extra...and of course he shot Yasmin and shot at Quinn...

Final person to be laid on the table: Jordan or Liddy? and who gets to do the kill?

My prediction: Liddy is going to be framed for the killings of The Group/Circle (basically, Boyd, Dan and Cole so far), Jordan will unfortunately meet his end somewhere in episode 12 (hopefully not like Miguel in Season 3, at the end of the 11th episode), and Liddy will either finally go to jail or be killed by someone at the end. I would hope Jordan would die last, rather than Liddy (maybe Jordan kills Liddy for whatever reason) but Liddy is stated to appear in every episode including the final one for this season...however, I'm worried about Chase's character. I heard he only has 6 appearances and if you count him speaking in Episodes 2 and 3, then that means he has just this upcoming episode.

What of the other two men in the photograph then? With 3 episodes left, they have to be found...or maybe they'll be a subject for Lumen in Season 6 (if, provided, she survives).

Second prediction: Both Debra and Quinn will realize who Dexter truly is, but will accept it (Debra because it's her brother AND that's what happened in the novels...apparently...and Quinn merely for the sake of his love for Debra). Liddy will be dealt with, probably by Quinn killing him (though will that put him on Dexter's table?) and as will Jordan Chase. Quinn may also die at the end of this season...however, he is currently listed THIRD just after Jennifer Carpenter in the cast during the opening titles. C.S.Lee is fourth, Laguerta's actress is fifth and David Zayas is sixth with Julia Stiles still being a "Guest Star".

Third prediction: Arthur Mitchell will revealed to be dead to Debra and POSSIBLY Homicide as a whole...Jonah Mitchell will start to play a part again and Debra will figure out that Dexter is responsible for the deaths of Brian Moser, Lila West (her alias was Lila Tournay), Miguel Prado and Arthur Mitchell (as well as The Group being Boyd, Dan, Cole, Jordan and two other men). Quinn ends up facing off Liddy to protect Debra, getting shot and killed by him. Dexter figures this out and puts Liddy on his table (or improvises and kills him another way). The Group will be silenced and Dexter will have a fresh opening for Season 6 (whatever that may be like).

but after tonights episode, i think Deb FOR SURE finds out about Dexter and his hobby after what she said to him while watching the DVDs, and I think she's definitely accept him

as for Quinn, i think he founds out too possibly, but keeps quiet due to his feelings for Deb, and lets admit it, Quinn isnt the most ethical character and could really care less as long he Dexter eliminates bad people

Dex won't kill Liddy, as Liddy is not a killer. Yes crooked but not a killer his code won't allow him to. My obvious guess is that Lumen will kill him. Though know how the show goes Dex will either set up Liddy as the fall guy for all the murders, like he did with Doakes. That or Chase will end up being the fall guy and it will all link back to him. Though I have a feeling that Quinn will end up in the middle of it all some how, either helping Dexter with the Liddy situation or just turning a blind eye, for his love of Deb.

Interesting theory about the blood on the shoe Chris. But I think that may be how they find the body in the first place. Quinn gets home, finds the blood on his shoe, orders a test and it comes up to be Liddy's, he goes to the last place he thought he was. But I could also be wrong. I also think the person with the glove who Deb has at gun point isn't Dexter but in fact Lumen....All guesses, only next Sunday will tell.

I LOVE how Quinn and Dexter both know Dexter killed Liddy and Quinn knows Dexter is onto him (thats how those misleading trailers make it seem but you can't trust them EVER). Fantastic season though, I read yesterday its been renewed for season 6 and they want to do a season 7 but many key actors need new contracts!

Just watched the season finale it was good, but bad at the same time don't want to spoil anything but I was hoping for something else.

Truth. I'll wait until people start responding to confirm people have seen the finale, but I think my major problem with the ep is that it can't beat last season. As much as I knew deep down that a Dex finale couldn't match up to the epicness of season 4, I think I held on to hope.

Don't get me wrong- it was a good one. It had enough weight to it with the suspense and the initial lead up to the "kill", but the way Lumen and Chase was wrapped up in the first 40 minutes kind of had me thinking that the last 20 minutes would have something more.

I almost felt like there should have been one extra ep in this season before this one maybe to really explain Jordan Chase some more or to have Quinn's story wrap up and breathe a little.

All that being said, nothing came off as corny or unbelievable. I really liked how Deb developed this season, turning into a badass cop instead of the whiney foul mouthed thing that she was in previous seasons. I'm basically just glad she wasn't a victim for once. She does have Harry's genes after all.

Yea, Dev is freaking smart as hell and nothing passes by her now.... i mean Dexter is going to have an even harder time moving around. But maybe since he has that favor now from you know who... he can use it to distract her at some points or something like that. I agree with the post above me... nothing can top season 4 which is by far my favorite of the 5 seasons. Season 4's finale will be extremely hard to top.... but i can't wait till next year already.

I didn't feel it slow at all. I thought the first 40 minutes seemed to wrap everything up so fast that it didn't have time to settle in.

My biggest concern though was that Dex crashed his car on the way to the camp, slipped out bleeding and no one inspected the car as a crime scene? I guess it's just a discarded plot device.

In the third season, he bled out a little bit in the warehouse where he killed Miguel, I believe, and nothing came out of that.

They can't kill Deb, Dexter would be totally lost! He always gets anonymous advice from her.

Yea, if anything and they can't work together.... long distance assignment or promotion to another place

Doesn't sound like they have a bitter relationship with each other, though.

I hope not, i guess it's just a worse case scenario if they can't get along in the workplace.... i don't know if it'd be awkward to be working with someone you just divorced

The finale was pretty good, certainly not the best but it was always going to be difficult to top season 4. They tried hard to put a bow on everything to wrap up the season nicely, but it felt like they rushed certain things and everything just abruptly came to an end. Maybe I was expecting too much…more a cliffhanger ending or something else. The ending had no momentum going into season 6.

I understand that most people probably don't want a sidekick for Dexter for the long term. In my opinion, it wouldn't be good seeing Dexter and Lumen working in pairs over the next season or two.
But was anyone annoyed that Lumen just suddenly left Dexter? She got what she wanted, she has gotten rid of her dark passenger and can't be with Dexter because he still has his? They probably had to get Julia Stiles off the show but it was still a bit lame and rushed. It was almost like she said..."I have to go now, my planet needs me".

Varied opinions, very nice.

Well...I'm happy with the finale. I was dissapointed that Jordan was done in so quickly but hey, what can you say...the focus was more on Lumen anyways. I felt most of the Group was done in so fast that there was little time for character development while they were alive, so instead more was built on after their death via the investigation into the Barrel Girls case. Chase was starting to show some awesome changes...I just wish he would have done this two episodes ago, so it would have turned out better (in fact, I'd rather them have introduced him SOONER than the 7th episode of the Season).

I'm relieved Dexter chose to spare Quinn from imprisonment (he was pretty much holding Quinn's fate in his hand), so that shows he has mercy for someone that Debra cares about and he probably realized Quinn was innocent in the long run (he backed out of the investigation on Dexter afterall).

I am dissapointed in the fact that Debra didn't find out about Dex and Lumen...so of course they put up a plastic sheet for her to spare them from being caught (which I knew was going to happen one way or the other). Ah well...she's one hell of a detective though, each Season she's only a step behind her brother...soon she may be ahead of him.

Final notes: I'm still pissed about the whole Santa Muerte thing. It was basically a sub-plot for the first half of the Season that completely dissapeared by the second half. No closure with Cira Manzon (her last appearance had Debra simply badmouthing her in passing and that was the last we saw), no fucking idea where Marco Fuentes went and the whole case just kind of dissapeared by Episode 9 (with the last reference to it being that episode). Really, Season 5 felt like a Family Guy episode...because they always start off with one plot for the first 15 minutes, that somehow LINKS into the second plot for the last 15 minutes...yet everyone's forgotten about the first plot by the end of the second. That's not to insult this season in any way...but to compare it. For example:


Peter buys a retarded horse, this horse is a focus for the first 15 minutes and then is killed...next thing you know, we're focused on some other plot all together as if the horse never existed. At the end of the episode the horse is thrown through the window and that closes it out.....
Quagmire spies on Lois in the bathroom and becomes a sexual deviant that everyone hates. After saving a girl's life, the whole thing is forgotten and suddenly Peter wants to be remembered...so the entire story switches to Peter becoming blind and ending up a hero.
So basically...Dexter focuses on Lumen and the Group, Debra focuses on Santa Muerte for the first half of the Season...then that vanishes and focuses on Barrel Girls. THE ONLY THING I see that came from Santa Muerte is Debra's understanding of vigilante killing...which ultimately formed her stance on the matter when she had Lumen and Dexter at gunpoint behind the plastic. If she had not worked with Cira and killed Carlos, she may have just found out about her brother and Lumen...with both ending up in jail. It's her feelings of the outcome of that sub-plot that shaped who she became...and maybe that will help her see past Dexter's killing ways when she FINALLY, finally discovers the truth about him.

Fun fact: Deborah, by the end of the first book, knows what Dexter truly is and learns to live with it. BTW yes the name is spelt Deborah, weird huh?

True yeah (BOOK SPOILER) I didn't get that far into the second, but she did see him and Brian kill LaGuerta.

As the the Santa Muerte thing, I think they are just trying to leave open waters to go back to, incase they need a filler or some bullshit. I also wondered about this, But I could be wrong.

AND as for Family guy, they're just trying to make it funny, it isn't really supposed to follow a straight plot/story, it's just a bunch of random funny shit.

Nothing can compete with last years epic finale but this still felt sort of like a letdown. Jordan Chase had his chance to get away on his flight but decided to stay back to duel with Dexter...

That sheet covering Dex and Lumen from Deb was pretty weak, I think it's time she fucking finds out. It's getting old watching her arrive late to the crime scene and never actually catching Dex in the act, or like the finale, catching dex in the act but letting them go without even catching a glimpse.

I thought it was a great season but I felt it ended abruptly as some said, it felt like the last 2 episodes were rushed.

May I join in on this discussion, my beloved Dexter fans? Well, you see, I've never seen an episode of Dexter, not ever. -___-

I've heard about it since it first came out, but never gave it a try, like a lot of other awesome shit I ended up watching in the end. >_>

Always knew the general synopsis of Dexter was that he's a serial killer, killing other serial killers. Anyway, watched the first episode yesterday and thought...this is interesting.

A guy that likes cutting woman to bits and draining their blood. I thought it was the fat guy that likes raping woman and filming his actions, but it turns out it's not him. :confused:

It seems to be very psychological type of show, which I always enjoy. However, what I like is Dexter's character and whole mind games aspect. I really dig that. Plus, it seems he doesn't like sex, likes eating fruit...weirdo. o_0

So far, this some pretty good shit, if I do say so myself. I hope it gets even better, with even more fucked up serial killers for Dexy to kill.

I'll watch an episode or two a day, so I should finish the first season within the next couple of days. But I am behind all of you on episodes, so therefore I am a vrigin. A virgin of this show is what I meant. >_>
