November 5, 2006 – “Return to Sender” Season 1, Episode 6

By now, you've all heard the good news. Dexter has been picked up for 12 new episodes coming in Spring 2007. This is a good thing considering how close Dexter came in this episode to being found out. Mrs. Castillo returns via the ITK: When he's called to the scene of his crime and Mrs. Castillo has been layed out in the Airstream we get to know more about how Dexter works. "A real pro," he's called and wishes he could take it as a compliment. Dexter is unraveling: The ITK is getting back at Dexter for not killing the security guard. A little kid is found in the trunk and when Dex climbs in to see what he can see, he knows he's been watched. But was it is the boy or the ITK? Either way he could be discovered. Dexter says the noose is tightening. "This is how it ends - in the hands of a seven year old." Best thing about this little boy, we finally get to see a softer side of Laguerta, or LT as Angel calls her. And he'll break her heart in the end. Many flashbacks tonight all focused on Deb and Dex's relationship growing up with Harry. Deb is Harry's real daughter, I thought she had been a foster child like Dexter. She's definitely jealous of the time Harry spends with Dex. And rightly so, he does not give her the kind of attention he gives his adopted son. Did we know that Dexter had been brought home from a case? Is that even legal? Rita's ex returns, or tries to: Rita's ex calls gets her kind of freaked out and with a little encouragement from Dexter she puts him in his place. He can't push her around, but you know that's going to come back later and bite her in the derriere. Funny moment: When Masuka runs the tox screen and finds M99 a veterinary drug in Mrs. Castillo's system, Dexter promises, "No more donuts for Masuka." Can anyone please tell me what Deb having dinner with the Doakes' family has to do with anything. Operators are standing by. Dexrter's sense of humor returns: "Her husband's a crack head and her boyfriends a serial killer, it's kind of hard not to take that personally." I love the dream where Deb is the serial killer and has his M.O. and he sees the ITK dangling the Barbie doll head. He wakes up with a cleaver in his chest. Ouch! "I don't have bad dreams. I've never felt a moment of remorse, doubt, or regret. What's happening to me?" Deb tries her hand at detective work: She comes up with a profile for the serial killer that sounds a little too much like Dexter and he discourages her from using it. She won't soon forgive him for what he ends up doing to save his own neck. I'm going to have to learn Spanish to really appreciate this show since a good portion of it is in Spanish and there are no subtitles. Deb's spine returns: Morgan in the bathroom to Laguerta "Why do you have it in for me?" Laguerta "You're loud, and you question authority." ITK returns Dexter moving out? He has to let go so he throws all of his 'utensils' overboard Thinks the boy saw him. His specimen tokens!! What will he do? He names the kills. He pulls Valerie Castillo out and the ITK has made a smiley face on her blood spot. Will he fight his way to survive? Dexter is fighting for himself trying to put the blame on Jorge. Dexter knows his "Days are numbered. I'd better make the most of them" And as his dad said, "Storm's on its way." That's good news for us! It just keeps getting better and better. show less
