Dexter Season 2 episodes

“The British Invasion” Season 2, Episode 12

If it werent for the last four minutes of tonights final Dexter I might have sworn off the series forever How could he not kill Lila The screen went black I was flabbergasted That false ending gave me a heart attack But alas our dear writers once again rose to the occasion giving us the kill we had been waiting for nearly all season And what a way to go First of all who would open a door to a cabin in the middle of nowhere with someone inside shouting Let me out Thank goodness Lilas as crazy as she is nay was Poor James I understand why he had to go the way he had to go but I am going to miss the big lug He wasnt such a bad guy However Im his soul mate were probably not the comforting words Doakes wanted to hear come of his potential rescuers mouth He should have known it was curtains for him at that point Lila was certainly in her element when Doakes told her that her beloved Dexter was the Butche read more

“Left Turn Ahead” Season 2, Episode 11

First of all 500 points to all the fish-head aficionados among you And 50 extra points to anyone who sang the song out loud when you read the words Secondly thanks to all of you eagle-eyed readers who caught my error when I inadvertently wrote that Dexter returned to the cabin to kill Doakes obviously more wishful thinking on my part I honestly dont know what Dex will do with Doakes but I will try to be more vigilant in my serial factsWith lines like Im the helpful handyman how evil can I possibly be this was one of the funniest Dexters yet Other good linesI always thought hardening arteries squeezed the life out of my father but it was meThats fine Tie me up put me in the trunk Lets goIve got a coworker in a cage things arent going so wellI really enjoyed our conversations James I lie to everyone I know except my victims right before I kill them Hard to establish much of a rapport there Sorry about the cageMas read more

“There’s Something about Harry” Season 2, Episode 10

Not the thrill-a-minute-ride that were used to but not half bad Yall were right this was the third of three Dexter episodes left Sorry my bad I guess I was just a little over zealous for the season finale which if the little teasers were any indication looks ridiculously goodLets start with some tasty lines Its okay to take a life so long as the city pays you for itWhat shall I do with my hostageOf course I have a conscience I left you a place to st didnt IYou cant play on my feelings I dont have anyLundy offhandedly told Debra he would be hitting the high road after the case It stunned poor Debra She was really hurt but I was happy to see them talk it out She was so honest and sincere when she told him her feelings about it Lundy thought the novelty of my AARP discount would wear off and youd get bored of me Debra told him Thats the sweetest read more

"Resistance Is Futile" Season 2, Episode 9

The first rule of Serial Killer Club Dont get caught Everyone repeat In yet another fabulously put-together Dexter our hero found himself dreaming dead-on dreams Cant leave this s--t lying around bro while sleeping in a lawn chair at his exs The show had everything Keith Carradines backside Lundy shook down LaGuerta The trophy slides were found in Doakes car Dexter became the FFTHeart to hearts everywhere Dex and Rita x2Deb and Dex LaGuerta and DoakesLila and DexterLundy and DebraDexter and the FBI agents in the backseat of the carDexter and the FBI lab techsAngel and DexterLaGuerta and DebraDoakes and DexterSee the list keeps growingMichael C Halls expressions in between dialogue were award worthy Not much has been said here about this versatile actor but last season I did mention his hotness Its still intact as is his talent All that self-reflection its unhealthy But the killing makes him sexier than read more

“Morning Comes” Season 2, Episode 8

This is the eighth episode of the phenomenally brutal and fantastic Dexter We are a mere four weeks away from the demise of the second season and the beginning of a long wait until the third The thought is paralyzing I take my TV watching very seriously And this episode was a shining example of why this show is so good and entertaining and why the next four weeks will be worth staying tuned If you thought Dexter was finding himself through his recovery program with Lila and Narcotics Anonymous think again Dexter came into himself through his life-long necessity to kill one of his mothers killers When Jimenez showed up Dex knew what he had to do The prep was the same as all his other traps but the kill so much more apropos When he leaned over I was hoping he would pull out a chain saw and my wish was granted Another moment of perfection But the real question was why he had showed up when and where he did The little slip of paper that Dex found in J read more

"That Night, a Forest Grew" Season 2, Episode 7

Though I have no idea how the title related to this ep a better one might have been Requiem for Demonic Dexter Dexter continued to try to alter the monster within and with each week of recovery gets closer and closer to taming the wild beast I must say they are pulling out all the stops in the second season of Dexter This is the antithesis of the sophomore slump If anything Dexter has gotten even better this time aroundDexter decided to control the actions of Lundy and his task force with his Presto Manifesto In an action designed to force the force to run scattershot Dex offered them the scent of another dog that led them down a dead-end trail However it really didnt matter because with Chopins help Nocturne No 2 in E flat major to be exact Lundy put some of the pieces together and figured out the Bay Harbor Butcher is in law enforcement Wow hes goodSay what you will Lila but Dexter not only took control of his feelings but those of read more

"Dex, Lies and Videotape" Season 2, Episode 6

I know Ive said this a hundred times before but this was perhaps one of the best Dexters ever written Ever I watched this ep a few days ago and have not stopped thinking about it since I thought we had already made the connection between Harry and Laura and the possibility that Dexter is Harrys biological son Dexter wanted to know if Harry planned to have him settle the score on behalf of his mother Perhaps Harry felt guilty for basically leading the murderers right to Laura and her two sonsLila was certain Dexters newfound discovery that even though he built everything in my life on what Harry told me to be and learned that Harry didnt follow his own code was part of a fresh start so he could figure out who he is She assured Rita and Gail at dinner that Dexter was doing well in recovery How well he was doing in recovery took most of the ep to find out Lila left an incriminating message on Dexs machine referring to Rita as Very Martha read more

"The Dark Defender" Season 2, Episode 5

The only bad thing about TV shows being released on DVD is that you get used to watching an entire season all at once and it makes having to wait a full week to see a show like Dexter an enormously aggravating eventIm not sure what the juiciest thing we found out was Was it that Harry lied to Dexter in order to bury his own guilt Or that Harry was on the case of his mothers murder Laura Moser was an informant Harry was actually Dexters father Or that Doakes and Laguerta used to do the nasty in the backseat of the squad carFirst we found out that Dexters mother was the informant on the cocaine case that lead to her imminent demise When Harry touched little Dexter on the head during the interview with her and said I wont let anything happen to you or your boys I wondered if there was more I was honestly floored to find out Harry was Dexters real father Its no real surprise that Laguerta and Doakes used to be more than just part read more

"See-through" Season 2, Episode 4

Jumpin Jehosephat that was a good Dexter We had intrique and murder and sex and scandal DeliciousRitas mother downplayed wonderfully by JoBeth Williams visited and though she was apparently supportive of the Bay Harbor Butcher she also inferred that Dexter has a secret and wouldnt she be surprised Rita didnt quite nod but I felt she was thinking Why yes he does Hes a drug addict Which of course we all know isnt true but whatever helps you sleep at night RitaDexters alien analysis of Ritas mom Gail was hilarious The funny voice he did when saying things like You have made me your sworn enemy evil woman and Perhaps I have misjudged you oh wise one made me laugh out loudI was however mortified that they were discussing the BHB at the dinner table with those two small children How did Cody know about him Was he watching gruesome news stories I guess he could have heard about it at school but not re read more

"An Inconvenient Lie" Season 2, Episode 3

Ridonkulous The thirds the charm This being the third installment of Season 2 of Dexter and weve hit a gold mine This ep was funny clever and totally satisfying like steak after a good kill So many inconvenient lies where to start Dexters told he is a bad liar and a very good liar to which he responds Not good enough Who else might be lying Well the very bad car salesman for one Oh but he got his Lets get right to the point why is Laguerta covering for Esmee Is it really a women-in-solidarity thing Or does she want to look really good when she finally takes over Esmees job Its hard to trust anyones motives in this show Doakes has been busy spying on Dexter and has done his homework He has learned quite a lot about our boy but not the real stuff So why wrap up the Doakes subplot so neatly Now that hes found Dexter in a 12-step program hes convinced I dont know a little clear-cut for my read more
