Life for Dexter is returning to normal. He's taking care of his son with the help of Angel Batista's sister Jamie. He dispatches two EMTs who have been killing patients to harvest their organs and he's looking forward to his high school 20th anniversary reunion. Not surprisingly, Dexter was something of an outsider in school but one girl, Janet, was at least nice to him. She dated and eventually married the schools star quarterback Joe Walker but committed suicide after they were married. Dexter is certain that Joe killed her and his main interest in the reunion weekend is to get a DNA sample from him. Elsewhere, Maria LaGuerta has been promoted to Captain and she and Angel are divorced. They're still friends and she is recommending him as her replacement as Lieutenant. Deb and Quinn are still living together and he is getting ready to pop the question - only to be interrupted in a restaurant in an unusual way.

Did You Know?


Dexter was 20 years old when he graduated high school. His driver's license indicates he was born in February of 1971. At the start of season 6 Dexter attended his "Class of '91" reunion. See more »


Masuka says he is teaching pathology at "the university." Since there are five four-year universities in the Miami metro area (two of which are doctorate-granting), such a lack of specificity would be confusing. See more »

Angel's sister Jamie is helping Dexter to take care of Harrison. The atheist Dexter is also looking for a Catholic school for his son following Jaime's recommendation. Dexter is invited to the 20th anniversary reunion of his high-school class. His only friend, Janet, died three years ago apparently committing suicide, but Dexter believes that her husband Joe Walker killed her and he wants to collect his blood sample to be sure. Angel and LaGuerta have divorced and she is promoted to Captain. But she recommends the lieutenant position to Angel. Debra and Quinn are living together and he wants to propose her to get married with him. When the intestine of a fruit street vendor is found on his scale, the Miami Metro detectives do not have any clue. But soon his body is found on the beach with seven snakes inside his corpse.

"Those Kinds of Things" is a good beginning of this season and shows a different scenario for Dexter and his friends. Sonya apparently left Dexter and now he hired Angel's sister to take care of Harrison. Debra and Quinn living together; LaGuerta and Angel are divorced. Now the serial killers seem to be two fanatic religious men. My vote is eight.
