Storyline

Dexter goes after his next victim, Lance Robinson, but before he can complete the deed receives a call from Lumen who hasn't left Miami and has tracked down one of her attackers. She's shot the man and now doesn't know what to do. He goes to the site with Robinson unconscious in his car only to find that the man Lumen shot is alive and has now disappeared. When the police, in the form of his sister Debra, respond to a call at the site Dexter has to be quick on his feet. Still working on the Santa Muerte murderers, Debra sets up a sting for the Fuentes brothers at their favorite nightclub. It's Angel Batista however who comes up with a vital piece of evidence.

Trivia

The song played at the nightclub when Quinn is drinking is from brazilian DJ Malboro. It's called "Som de preto". The lyrics "É som de preto / de favelado / mas quando toca / ninguém fica parado" means "It's black's sound / from the slums / but when it plays / nobody stands still". See more »

Goofs

Dexter stages two bodies to protect Lumen, but the sex game scenario does nothing to explain the initial pool of blood or the blood trail leading to the bodies. See more »

Quotes

Intense Dex & Lumen driven story, literate writing, wicked jokes and enchainting ambivalent ending
1 November 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

One actress to rule them all, Julia Stiles. Each fictional goddess should have her shrine and Lumen is no exception. This sixth installment was a turning point. The decisive moment when we have to choose between entering her temple, with the risk of never getting out of it, and running for our miserable lives. When Lumen decided to stay in Miami it was obvious she would inevitably stumble upon our favorite daddy. So as expected the story was driven by her and Dex. The way it was developed was both refreshing and exciting. Their intense run was full of wit and puzzling contradictions. Moreover their growing relationship puts the monster we all know in a completely different light. I even spotted a possible reference to Descartes and his famous rule on slicing things up to gain control or solve a complex problem more easily. The compartment metaphora was as smart as the others and should deepen the layered vision you have of the show. From the serial killer to the father Dex personality is composed of so many mirrors that it's hard to keep up. Everything is Illumenated severely tested his multi-tasking ability and the writers kept surfing on the edgy wave summoned in the past season. Master Masuka was also back with his vicious wisdom and non sense theories. The guy deserves his own talk show ! An other guilty pleasure was the baby. Good or evil ? The recurring joke about him was just irresistibly wicked ! Last but not least the ending duration and velocity were perfect. It successfully packed up all events in a nice wooden box, ready to be opened as a Pandora and unleash its cataclysmic fury. The controversial reference to Rita was heartbreaking and perfectly executed. You should specially be moved by the contrast between the cold floor where the characters are sat down and the ambivalent warmth of the dialogs. Lumen.
