Dexter follows a code defining the who, how and when he kills, he learned to have one feeling and that feeling was hunger, hunger for blood.
For us who know what has happened before, we know he has had relationships, people close to him have been hurt and he has hurt people he cares about without any remorse; up until this season.
Last one ended in a double whammy, first Debra discovers she is in love with him, then Debra herself finds Dex “pants down”.
Both agendas collide in this new season, Debra forgets love and Dexter finds LOVE people! She however rediscovers her sense of justice and how she has a double moral regarding her brother.
Dexter is a serial killer FACT, more than one person knows… FACT… Dexter is riding another wave… FACT.
There is no way we can know how it will develop or if we will get to see another season, but discovering the fragile Dex, the one who can identify with another human being, with sympathy, fear, protection is watching the human, the one who is letting down his guard and collecting far too many enemies and loose end. A guy in jeopardy is a whole new Dexter and having his own sister potentially against him expands the story to many other levels.
This season is shaping up as one of the most original of the series and the one where real murderous feelings have been explored, a real thrilling drama worth tv time.
GO and catch up!
