The X-Files had its monster of the week, Dexter has its monster of the season. When the first leaf of autumn fell I anticipated a new nemesis for our wicked serial killer but even after Hello Bandit I wasn't sure about it. But with a powerless Dex it seems the writers have found a refreshing way to slice up their words. Indeed like in Hello Bandit the story featured a few twists that should definitely put viewers on the verge of their seats. From the dead animals cleaner to Quinn's obsession all arcs are exciting. They all developed in perfect sync, including the one involving Deb and her new female partner. However I can only question her morality considering what she said about a corpse. She should know better after what happened in season 3. I can't even believe Jennifer Carpenter read her lines without reporting the issue to the writers ! An other issue was the return of the Batista-LaGuerta mumbo jumbo. I naively thought that it would end with their marriage but they're back for more. This time we had to endure a scene that exceeded a minute ! To tell the truth I dozed off. It was just painless and dead boring. Moreover we need more Masuka ! He was so funny toying in Dex's lab last week. But it was a minor con as the humor was dominant for once. I guess it's the best way to picture how tragic his life has become. An other element that stroke me was the bloody appearance of the guest star name in the opening credits. Be prepared for the unpredictable as its first scene was a first for the show !
