As Detective Anderson is about to "flamingo" the druggie in the alley, he says "It's a Chicago thing. It's ironic. Because we don't actually have flamingos in Chicago." This statement is false, as there is a brilliant flamingo exhibit at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. See more »

Darkness vs Light
7 November 2011 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful episode. From the monotonous kill spree of Dexter, this episode provides something totally different. We see the light inside Dexter thanks to Brother Sam, yet ironically it is brother Sam who leads him to foreseeable darkness.

Throughout the 6 seasons Dexter keeps talking to his Father, however by the end of this one another relative is now a part of the darkly dreaming Dexter.

I am so looking forward to the return of the cold blooded ice truck killer. The dark passenger of Dexter is no longer a mere passenger, he seems to have taken over.

What is even more intriguing is to see how the writers will mold the season in bringing the good back in Dexter. Despite being a serial killer, Dexter has always been able to connect to the lighter and the good side of the viewers however with the sudden entry of his brother, the one, he killed himself it is very exciting to see where our favorite character is heading.

Will the writers keep the good in Dexter or is this another twist in the tale ? I for one will not predict, will let the writers captivate me. Is the ice truck killer a fork in the road or the road itself ?
