Storyline

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

Goofs

Dexter throws the body of the motel clerk into the corn silo and it is shown sinking into the corn as if the corn is a liquid or semi-liquid when in reality the body would have remained on top or at most slid to the side if the the corn was higher in the center. See more »

Quotes

Dexter Morgan: [voiceover] I've been lost before; after Rita died, after Lumen left. But now I've been... found. Brian Moser, my dead brother. It's been a long time since I've seen him.
Rudy Cooper: Too long.
[tossing a body bag to Dexter]
Rudy Cooper: Here, catch. You used to love to play, why the long face?
Dexter Morgan: Brother Sam had hoped I'd be able to forgive Nick for shooting him.
Rudy Cooper: Because you don't turn the other cheek, you slice it. Brother Sam doesn't know you like brother Brian does.

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.
