This week on Dexter, America’s favorite serial killer (Michael C. Hall) is scrambling to clean up the Trinity Killer (John Lithgow) fallout after the Thanksgiving dinner blunder. Dexter also discovers a chilling fourth step in Trinity’s devious killing cycle and rushes to shut Trinity down for good before an innocent child’s life is lost. Meanwhile, Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) begins to explore her suspicions surrounding reporter Christine Hill (Courtney Ford) and her involvement in the shooting that left her with a bullet wound and a lost lover. Vince Masuka (C.S. Lee) is torn up about accidentally seeing Dexter’s wife Rita (Julie Benz) kissed by the next door neighbor. He also makes a huge break in the Trinity case when it is discovered that the reporter’s DNA shows a blood relationship with the anonymous Trinity DNA. And finally, we begin to understand the nature of the relationship between Trinity and the reporter, Christine Hill.
Watching Dexter is like watching the progress of several different Trains, only to pull way back and discover that the trains are all on a path to collision. It’s really kind of wonderful. We see different, seemingly unrelated paths and slowly watch them inevitably join at a single point. As of last week, we now see the collision ahead, even if Dexter doesn’t.
Being privy to information unknown to Dexter, such as Trinity being Christine Hill’s father, is one of the many thrills of being a Dexter fan. With Dexter closing in on Trinity, Trinity closing in on Kyle (Dex’s alter ego), Deb closing in on Christine, and Miami Metro homicide closing in on Trinity, the final two episodes should be chock full of the sort of excitement that usually comes only with sex, drugs, and rock and roll.
Still, I really want…scratch that…need that reporter to go away, preferably via Dexter’s killing altar. Stupid “hot” people – snaking their way around with their taut bodies and, and, and, and, good hygiene; using their looks to get them whatever they want; sleeping ONLY with equally hot, smug assholes to get whatever they need (here’s looking at you, Quinn) instead of us mere mortals who like to bone for the fun of it. Shut that woman DOWN, Dex. Please, sir! There I go again, rooting for murder – what a show.
Dexter has dug himself a hole the size of Lindsey Lohan’s…well, ahem…a HUGE hole with this private investigation into “Trinity’s Winning Guide to Family Life and Serial Killing” debacle. And now, after Dex has botched chance after chance to kill the creep, Arthur is out their running amok – presumably trying to get some 87 year old grandmother of three to pee on his chest whilst wearing a diaper and force-feeding his sister’s ashes to a dead moose.
Dex needs to act and act fast. Everyone hold onto your hats and tune in for the penultimate episode this Sunday at 9pm ET on Showtime.
