Having avenged Brother Sam's death, Dexter gets some bad news from Deb - it appears the Trinity Killer has returned to kill his wife and daughter, leaving his son Jonah as the only survivor. Dexter knows that Trinity is lying in pieces at the bottom of the ocean and immediately suspects that Jonah may have taken over where his father left off. He sets off for Nebraska to confront Jonah accompanied by someone from his past. When he confirms Jonah's role in the deaths, Dexter clearly has a choice to make. Back in Miami, the team gets a significant lead when they locate the girl Travis released. But with Dexter unavailable, the squad are missing a key expert to analyze what they've found. Travis stays with his sister and seemingly ends his relationship with Gellar. Captain Laguerta embarrasses Debra at a meeting. Written by garykmcd

Dexter jumping the shark?
15 November 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I was really really disappointed with this episode.

Till this one i was quite pleased with season 6, it doesn't have the "24- feel" of the fifth one, it was back to the storytelling i like. The story has time to develop, everything is thought-out, story plot mistakes are very rare, but now this one.

I think Dexter really jumped the shark, he was acting completely out of character, like he was on drugs or something, although he still is aware of his code (because he says so in one scene), he doesn't follow it at all. Plus the new "virtual Brian" was really set in place badly, when Harry is used, it is much more subtle, but this chimera was really bad.

I still have hope for the rest of the season, but i think it's time Dexter doesn't overstay his welcome.
