Storyline

Dexter's interview with the FBI goes well he's told they don't suspect him of murder since he was at Trinity's house at the time Rita was killed. He's having trouble being a single parent however. Astor and Cody want to move back into their house - they're all living temporarily with Debra in what is now a very overcrowded apartment - and when they skip school one day to go there, Dexter realizes something has to be done. Meanwhile, Debra is also a bit fed up with the situation and goes over to Quinn's for a decent night's sleep. Dexter focuses on a new serial killer as his next victim. Written by garykmcd

Convincing child acting, exciting Quinn, dual top notch visuals, dynamic and intriguing story
5 October 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Hello. An innocent word that sold its sense to Dexter. This second installment confirmed the potential of the fifth season. How Dex and the children will move forward ? Will Quinn find out about his double life ? These questions were raised in the pilot and it seems the upcoming episodes, including this one, will get us some answers.

One thing that slightly disappointed me in My Bad was the acting. When it comes to Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter I expect the best and generally they deliver. Their moonlight scene reminded me of Dex chat with the Ice Truck Killer. From the lighting to the pace it was a calm and sad moment that should move you. I really appreciate how their relationship is developed because it's easy to relate to it, even if you don't have a brother or sister. They could be best friends, it doesn't matter. An other element I enjoyed was the child acting. Christina Robinson as Astor and Preston Bailey as Cody really did a good job and I was specially impressed by the first. She's young but already able to convey complex emotions through her eyes. Their performance wasn't flawless but definitely a convincing match to the adult one. It leads us to Desmond Harrington, the man behind Joey Quinn. He has become much much more than the playcop next door. His traumatic experience with Christine in the past season shaped him a new spirit. He won't make the same mistake twice. Frowning most of the time the writers have still found him a few comic relief moments, involving Deb of course. Their scenes were welcome because of their contrast with the darker and more controversial ones. Creepy and poetic blood analysis with daddy ? Checked. Intense investigation with dual elements ? Checked.

Let's also not forget the top notch production, specially the ambivalent visuals, and the memorable appearances of James Remar as Harry Morgan. This season recipe is starting to smell real nice and all major arcs have tremendous potential. And they haven't already played their trump card yet ! I can't wait for the guest star to finally lemon up the screen !
