Enjoying this season so far, and there were some great laughs during the premiere.

This past week's episode was good, but a step back from the premiere.

Wasn't it just last season that Deb was demoted for a public shootout and now that same thing is getting her promoted?! I mean, Mathews is probably doing it to get back at LaGuerta, but come on! It doesn't make a lot of sense.


I'd really like the show to spend more time with EDJ and Colin Hanks and less with Miami Metro, except for Masuka and Brea Grant.

Yeah, but the shootouts were under completely different circumstances, and most importantly no one died (well, besides the guys he killed before she took him down) in this one.

I'm kind of hoping the intern gets nude this season. Am I wrong for saying that?

Only insomuch as saying that you "kind of hope" doesn't convey how much you should be hoping she gets nude

I'm sure she will. It seems any attractive bit-part chick in this show is only there to gets her knockers out.

Not sure about this season so far, the whole thing with Deb getting promoted is a bit ridiculous, and not a lot happened in the last episode.

I don't think Deb being promoted is ridiculous.  Matthews is coming at this from two angles:  He has a grudge against LaGuerta and he sees Deb as a new poster child for the department.  That said, I think her being lieutenant is not going to go so well.  My money is more drama between Matthews and LaGuerta coupled with Deb's struggle with her new responsibilities that will lead to her stepping down/getting axed, and Angel moving up.

Did anyone else think it was totally uncharacteristic of Dexter to go after Travis with the intent to kill so quickly?  I thought it was in his code to make sure he had more actual evidence than a few loose connections.  (Not to mention he was already suspecting multiple killers)  It's just been kind of bothering me for some reason.

Also, NOOOO Brother Sam.  First supporting character I've really liked in this show for a long time and they just have him shot.   :angry:

Actually I take this back, EDJ is looking more and more as a figment of Travis' imagination.


@CC: It was a bit uncharacteristic of him to do that, but so was when he killed that guy in the swamps last year (where Harry said "that's the most human thing you've ever done"). That whole sequence to me was just badly written. What? Dexter expects Travis to just drive him to Gellar right after he basically told him he was gonna kill Gellar?

Also, I hate that they shot Brother Sam because now this next episode is gonna be wasted on Dexter finding who did it and the major plot gets stalled and elongated.

It throws some twists into the story which is awesome, btw. This season has been really good so far and I'm really excited to see where it takes the characters.

It's not that I mind, I like the Brother Sam character, but I just wanna know if my theory on Gellar is right.

Well, if you noticed at the restaurant with the waitress, she doesn't even acknowledge Gellar's presence and he doesn't even have anything to drink. I agree with D on this, I want to see if Gellar is just in Travis' head

Yep, seems we have a Fight Club-esque thing going on here. 

Everything seems to point in the direction of the Geller who is talking to Travis being a figment of his imagination.  (In a similar way to how Dexter communicates with Harry in his head)  Mostly the fact that we've never actually seen Geller do any of the killing himself, and how he's able to walk through a public place with his face all over the city and not receive any notice for it, and how his blogs apparently ended and he disappeared. 

Also, (and I'm going to take this theory a bit further) perhaps Travis killed Geller.  I started thinking this with the part where blood appeared on Geller's forehead... maybe a possible recollection of an actual event seeping into Travis's consciousness.  Geller apparently had a thing for brunettes, maybe Travis killed him out of rage for messing around with his sister (who Geller seemed to not want Travis to see) and got severely fucked up from it and has been having delusions of his teacher ever since.

I feel the idea that Travis killed Gellar is much more realistic than the idea that Gellar is just a figment of his imagination. All the guys in homicide are looking for Professor Gellar, a real person. Personally I think both theories are looking too far into things, and both guys are real and alive.

The scene a couple of episodes ago where Dexter was praying to the coffee machine was pretty awkward in my opinion. If Dexter starts believing in God by the end of this season I am done with this show. The reason I fell so in love with Dexter in the first place was that his character was so different to everything else on television, so cold and ruthless yet very believable, and whilst I appreciate the need for him to become more 'human' with each passing season I feel like the writers are turning him from an anti-hero into just a plain old good-guy in order that a wider audience can resonate with him.

imo, of course.

Hmm. I can see both sides. Do you remember that Gellar tied up the waitress girl before Travis woke up though, and she seemed to be aware of Gellar there.

No she wasn't. Look at that scene again, she never even looks at Gellar's direction!

Yeah, I only ever saw her focus on Travis. And the fact that he was outside the nightclub and no one ever paid attention to him. Surely someone would have recognized him. I think scenes like that are here for a reason

Yeah, there's too much clues that make him not real. There's no plate setting while they were in the restaurant, the waitress doesn't even acknowledge another person, she doesn't look at him when she's tied up, no one recognizes him at the night club, the way he kinda "push" Travis' knee to get the "whore of Babylon". Oh, there's also the FUCKING WHITE HOT IRON ROD HE PUT TO HIS ARM AND HE DIDN'T EVEN SQUINT!

Though this could all be misdirection and the writers WANTS us to think he isn't real. I mean Travis says that Gellar is the one doing the killings and Dexter made a point that the cuts done to the 4 Horsemen guy were rough, not what they should be given Travis' job, yet if we go by Fight Club's "rules" of split personality, he wouldn't even realize that he is the one doing the killings.

Also, anyone else thinks it's inevitable for Deb to fuck the new detective?

Was it "neat"? I could've sworn Dexter says something on this last episode about some of the murders and Travis not quite adding up.

Yeah, thinking about that, it seems a little less likely.  Dexter did draw the conclusion that there were two separate killers from the cutting style, and he is very rarely wrong about these things. 

Possibly (though this sounds a little far-fetched) Travis really does get fully into this Geller persona, so much that it alters his performance.  Or we have another assistant.  (I'm suspecting Geller's hot student is going to be involved somehow)

Hmmm.  Hmmmmmmmmmmm.
