Storyline

When Arthur kidnaps a young boy from a video arcade, Dexter realizes that his killing cycle has started again and that it includes four, not three, killings. The disappearance of the boy is headlines news in Miami and Dexter gets a clue as to Arthur's whereabouts when his son Jonah tells him his Dad was recently looking at houses for sale. Debra finally sits down with reporter Christine Hill to give the interview she promised. Debra turns the tables on her by becoming the interviewer and questioning how she could have managed to get to site of the Lundy and her shooting so quickly, especially since she lives over an hour away. Brenda and Batista decide that a DNA test is in order and are shocked by what they find. Christine desperately tries to contact her father to get his help. Written by garykmcd

Captivating "Debxter" evil twin investigations ; dual and webbed character development ; Courtney Ford's convincing performance
30 November 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

If you had lost faith in Dexter then this episode should definitely be your redemption. Hungry Man was a good episode to lead us to the intense events that happened in Lost Boys.

I really enjoyed the double investigation and both arcs were well written. Of course Deb and her team continued to track down Trinity and as usual Jennifer Carpenter did a great job. The interview she did was just fascinating, very well staged and brilliantly directed. In fact it's funny to compare Deb to her former self in season 1. She's so strong now and has so much charisma ! Obviously the other arc involved her brother. Even if I found its dynamic a bit sloppy and the writing not as puzzling as it could have been, because of its common patterns, all I can say is that it was quite surprising. In fact I can't believe the writers have waited for so long to finally unveil what the show is all about. I won't spoil it but to better understand what I mean, just read my Easy as Pie episode review once you have watched this one. I also found his hasty dialog with the character he worked with quite inspiring.

So the dinner was tasty but there were also plenty of other elements to wild the senses. "BatisGuerta" was only featured for a few seconds and this time it was more about what Batista is capable of as a detective. Also like in the previous episode Dex and Trinity profiles were developed further. The scenes with the second were relatively disturbing but for once we learned more about his past and it demonstrated that things are not just all black or white. Last but not least what I probably enjoyed the most was Courtney Ford's performance as the reporter Christine Hill. Last time she quickly grew on me but this episode she finally revealed her talent and the character's profile even managed to bring a new dimension to Dexter's story.

It was so interesting that I'm already thinking about what will happen in season 5 ! And as I consider it as a new beginning I don't expect the show to end before a few seasons. A good or bad thing ? I let you be the judge.
