Storyline

Just as Dexter is about to set off find Jordan Chase, his entire family arrives having decided to travel down from Orlando to celebrate Harrison's birthday in Miami. Cody and Astor have something special to ask him. Having managed to extricate himself from any family obligations from the day, he arrives at the station to learn that Liddy's body has been found and the entire squad is assigned to working on the case. Things quickly deteriorate for Joey Quinn who is taken into custody after they find Liddy's phone and see that Quinn was frequently called on the day he died. Jordan Chase has not yet killed Lumen as he wants to trap Dexter as well and eliminate both of them. Dexter manages to trace Chase to his lair leading to the inevitable confrontation. In the end Dexter, Lumen and Debra will all have choices to make and not everyone will be happy or content with the choices they make. Written by garykmcd

Det. Debra Morgan: I know who you are... Number 13... And I know what they did to you! I've seen the tapes... I watched them over and over... It's a miracle you survived! A fucking miracle! And you

Not so big one but still enjoyable.
1 August 2011 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

What can i say?, I'm a fan of the series but there where to many lose ends on this season, all the situations with Dexter getting softer don't really bother me, it's OK, we have to remember that he is trying to get rid of his "Dark Passenger" but something really noticeable was the almost absence of nudity, i know you are going to say that I'm a pervert or something but my point is, real people walks naked in their homes, have sex on a million places, erotism its present everyday on our lives, first 4 seasons managed this really good but season 5 did not, it kind of remind me when you see on film a couple about to make love and suddenly they cut the scene or terror movies that never let you take a good look to the monster or when they kill someone and you don't see how or a good shoot of it at least, it's something that doesn't feel right to me, like it's not real, one of my favorite scenes is when finally Dex and Rita make love, it was breathtaking really, felt so real to see the characters exposed like that, happy and loving each other so when Dex found her in the tub it was shocking. I'm going to keep watching this show anyway, it's obvious they rushed to finish the plot on season 5 but there is season 6 on the way and maybe they have some surprises for us.
