Storyline

Just as Dexter is about to set off find Jordan Chase, his entire family arrives having decided to travel down from Orlando to celebrate Harrison's birthday in Miami. Cody and Astor have something special to ask him. Having managed to extricate himself from any family obligations from the day, he arrives at the station to learn that Liddy's body has been found and the entire squad is assigned to working on the case. Things quickly deteriorate for Joey Quinn who is taken into custody after they find Liddy's phone and see that Quinn was frequently called on the day he died. Jordan Chase has not yet killed Lumen as he wants to trap Dexter as well and eliminate both of them. Dexter manages to trace Chase to his lair leading to the inevitable confrontation. In the end Dexter, Lumen and Debra will all have choices to make and not everyone will be happy or content with the choices they make. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

While Dexter and Debra are in the briefing room talking, Deb says "I know what it's like to be taken" (referring to Dexter's brother who took her, The Ice Truck Killer) and immediately after Dexter has one his asides and says "she can't even say his name, Rudy, my brother" when in fact it was revealed that his name was Brian Moser, not Rudy. - While Dexter's brother's name is in fact Brian (Moser), he and everybody else mostly knew him as Rudy Cooper. So that name would be first on their minds. See more »

Quotes

Astor Bennett: Where is she? Your tenant. Who was staying at the house.
Dexter Morgan: She left.
Astor Bennett: I'm sorry. Did you do it? What you wanted to do? You said she needed your help. Did you help her?
Dexter Morgan: Yeah. I think I did.
Astor Bennett: And did it work? Did it make you feel better? About what happened to mom?
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] You can't do one thing to make up for another. That's what Jordan Chase says. But he's wrong, because we do that all the time. That *is* the way the world works. We try to make things right. Even me.

It Keeps getting better
8 January 2018 | by jetkotSee all my reviews

Micheal C Hall is an exceptional performer. This author backed role was somehow written only for him. I cannot imagine any other actor playing Dexter Morgan. The Season Finale of Season 5 left me spellbound again. It was an edge of the seat thriller. Debra almost finding out the truth was a dramatic twist. Jonny Lee Miller gave his best shot in the last episode. We could see his psycho side taking over his cool demeanor.
