Storyline

Having disposed of serial killer Boyd Fowler, Dexter now has to figure out what to do with the young woman he found alive in Fowler's house and who saw him get rid of her captor. He manages to identify her as Lumen Pierce from Minnesota but has to get her to trust him. Although still on leave, Dexter agrees to Debra's request that he examine the crime scene where the most recent beheading took place. He finds evidence that gives them their first real lead in the killings. Quinn is convinced that Dexter is the Kyle Butler who had befriended the Trinity Killer and sets out to find Trinity's family so he can show them Dexter's photo. Batista tries to avoid an Internal Affairs investigation by apologizing to the cop he beat up. Written by garykmcd

Olympic acting and empathic new dual character ; contorted and strained development ; stimulating arcs and blossoming "BatisGuerta", or not
18 October 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

La Belle et la Bête, probably the best French fairy tale to depict the bolt from the blue encounter between Julia Stiles character and Dexter. Was she convincing as Lumen Pierce ? Definitely ! They found the perfect match to Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall olympic skills. To tell the truth so far I had only seen her in teenage movies, 10 Things I Hate About You and Save the Last Dance. But after watching one of them I remember telling my sister she would be the next big star. Of course I had a crush on her and wasn't objective but now I realize that she proved I was right because her performance was both disturbing and heartbreaking. The poor scared kitten trapped in the monster lair ? I've probably thought way too much time to Masters of Horror's Jenifer but I suspected her profile to be as wicked as Lila Tournay in season 2. Of course she's nothing like her because it would feel like déjà vu but you should definitely be excited by her past, present and future. This installment was about the second, hand in hand with our favorite cereal daddy, but we also had a furtive glimpse at the others. She should instantly grow on you and her fate is so intriguing that the inevitable ending was painful, the good way. My only complains would be about a questionable lighting in a building and the relatively predictable development even if it was twisted enough. I think they could have put some extra efforts to puzzle us even more. However the action was so intense, even more than in past episodes, that there was little room to think straight. With an obsessed Quinn on Dex's tail like Doakes was, Deb investigating the creepy case in her crispy way and the baby at home to take care of I already predict a captivating season ! Even the whole "BatisGuerta" gibberish is starting to make sense but I wouldn't mind a Head First Death™ for our two luv birds.
