Dexter has decided to make a new life for himself with Hannah and Harrison but not before he takes care of the Brain Surgeon. In searching Zach Hamilton's photo studio he finds a clump of hair and blood hidden under a table. When Dexter runs the sample against the DNA database he finds a familial match - to Dr. Evelyn Vogel. Somewhat incredulous at his revelation, Vogel explains that she once had two sons, the eldest of which killed the other. He was placed in a mental institution but died in fire. Dexter believes he must have survived and soon has him identified. Deb meanwhile is having second thoughts about returning to Miami Metro. She's also agreed to let Hannah, who is now being sought by a Federal Marshall, hide out at her house. Written by garykmcd

I give up ... You win writers !!
26 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I cant believe how pretentious this show has become !! The quality of Dexter had definitely come down after the first 4 seasons, but it still was decent .. Not any more !! This season started on a good note but now its just hollow. I think the Zach Hamilton track and the Hannah track in this season show just how badly out of ideas the writers are.

This season I think, has more plot holes than the last three put together and this episode has bigger plot holes than any other episode of this season. I mean ... taking the photo of a kid and adding forty years to the photo to see how he now looks like ?! You've got to be kidding me !! Apparently, even the hairstyle hasn't changed!

I have been trying a lot to like this season, but the writers sure have a way to make it more and more difficult for me, episode after episode !! This is where I give up!

I was a huge fan of Dexter and it is truly sad to see how a series which used to once be an amazing thriller, now simply feels pretentious and forced !!
