Officer Hanson: Hey you! Back behind the line.
Dexter Morgan: No, I was called here. I'm Dexter Morgan, that might be my sister.

27 October 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I must admit that i thought the new seasons started very badly, Dex not in control, the improbable romance between Batista and laguerta, the return of old lost love for Debra etc So many clichés that almost made me forgot that Dexter was the most innovating TV show i show for decade.

But the 2 last episodes are so amazing, intense and again surprising. The ending of episode 4 was so unexpected that i thought that the writer will never surprise me again since i know that now everything is possible on this TV show. But i got shocked and so amazed by the ending of episode 5, i guess i had the same face than Dexter when he saw what we saw. I cannot remember to have been so connected to a reaction of a character than i was during the ending of this episode. I still cannot get over it today.

Bravo !!!!
