Dexter has so many facets to his character
. The producers of this great show spend alot of time developing how we as the audience see Dexter. How many actual serial killers do you hope will get away with their crimes? Every sunday night for near three years now I find myself feeling a confusing sense of guilt for sincerely wishing Dexter keeps murdering and not getting caught. Does this make me a horribly nasty evil person? I don't know, but I do know this is good evidence the writers and producers of Dexter are doing their job and they're doing their job well.
This weeks episode is titled "Finding Freebo"
because last week Dexter went to kill Freebo and wound up killing the brother of a district deputy attorney, letting Freebo slip right through his fingers. Oops! Dexter's always making some kind of error in judgment. This is his second obvious error this season. His first was getting his girlfriend Rita pregnant. Actually Dexter's third possibly detrimental foul up occurred last night. Immediately upon completing his mission of killing Freebo the deputy district attorney showed up, catching Dexter with fresh blood on his hands. Dexter quickly blankets the district deputy attorney with a covering of lies. These lies mean nothing to the district attorney, who is over-joyed Dexter has just rid the earth of Freebo. He then offers to help Dexter clean up the mess and get rid of all the evidence. Dexter says "I'll take care of it, you should go, plausible deniability". All in all it was a fine intimate moment shared between Dexter, the D.A., and the audience.
Freebo's now dead
and it looks like Dexter will be paling around with the D.A. for awhile, who appears to be enamored with Dexter for his kind act of revenge. I love how Dexter gets giddy just before, during, and after a kill. Everything associated with killing truly is a fix for him. I really miss his narcotics anonymous sponsor Lila. She was slightly more nuts than Dexter however they still could have found room to bring her along with the rest of the cast into this season.
There's one other killer on tv who I'm beginning to fall in love with
. The irresistibly sexy Summer Glau. She plays John Connor's terminatrix protector or protectress on "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles". She sometimes exhibits strange flaws in her thinking and behavior. For instance last week she kept looking up a chimney listening to birds chirp. She then tried unsuccessfully a few times to get permission from Sarah Connor to kill the birds. She couldn't rid her mind of killing these birds. She's going through some kind of identity crisis right now. She's actually learning who she is just like any other sentient being. Her psyche is different from yet right on par with Dexters.
I know I got a little off topic but I hope this will tide you over until next weeks episode and my review of it. Zimbio.com is a good place to find articles and news on Dexter
or Michael C. Hall
. I hope everyone has a great week. See you all back here next week.
