Top Five Thoughts, 8 December 2010
Author: rwk2

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

1. Jordan Chase is just not scary. On the Dexter Scale of Cool Seasonal Killers he's dead last. Trinity is the hands-down best, then Ice Truck Killer, then, D-Man himself, the Bay Harbor Butcher, followed by the Skinner, and finally and without fanfare, Mr. Chase. He doesn't even rate a cool name.

2. Nor is he motivational. I don't understand why people listen to him, let alone are controlled by him.

3. Chase is so arrogant he doesn't even have a weapon after luring Lumen over. I understand that she's frightened of him but hasn't she been preparing for just this confrontation? She should have beat him down, thrown a lamp at him, gouged out his eyes, or something! At least knifed him. I thought that was why we were shown her getting the knife in the first place. He wasn't armed at all until he picked up the fireplace poker.

4. Liddy is wonderfully swarthy but not too bright. As he was on the beat of the Miami police force during the Bay Harboy Butcher scare it stands to reason he would've known the bodies were dumped inside trash bags. Along comes a guy who appears to be doing the same thing. Unless that's a common trash disposal method in South Florida, which I doubt. Coupled with the footage of Dex showing Lumen how to stab someone you'd think a light bulb would have lit up inside his head. Slimy guy, worthless as a detective.

5. And yet, he gets the drop on our hero. Although this led to a cool scene inside the van it still rang false. Dex used to be spot on: did his homework, rarely made mistakes. This season it's like he doesn't even remember the score of other kills he's made. The cops pulled dozens of bodies out of the water, most of them dangerous people with a violent past, yet he's fumbling around, rushing in without thinking. True, Rita's death probably messed him up but now that's got a sidekick along for the ride he should be in top form.
