Dexter: Dex, Lies and Videotape
(S02E06) A couple of commenters last week mentioned they thought Harry could possibly be Dexter's biological father. Someone else mentioned that Dexter actually had a blood test done to prove who his father was, and I seem to remember that myself as well, though for some reason I can't remember the details.
In any case, Dexter continues to question how honest Harry had been with him when he was alive. In fact, he's getting pretty angry at him. It seems to me that, along with Lila's influence (whether positive or negative), Dexter not trusting what Harry taught him is just going to cause Dex to become even more sloppy.
What's been great is how, although Lundy seems to know something and to be inching ever-so closer to who the real Butcher is, Dexter stays incredibly cool and without a bead of sweat showing in the Floridian heat.
As if Lundy getting closer to Dexter wasn't enough, Doakes is back on his case. It seemed Doakes was quickly and easily taken off Dexter's tail, and maybe even had a bit of respect for him for being so distraught over the job that he was a junkie. If Doakes continues to get into Dexter's business, how could Dex resist taking him out?
The dinner with Lila, Rita and Gayle was a strange situation, and God do I hate Gayle. Does anyone buy it for one moment that Lila's a recovering Meth addict? She's got something a lot more dark about her, that's for sure.
And about Rita, it looks like maybe this is the end for her and Dexter, though all of this really is Gayle's fault. If it wasn't for her meddling and lack of support, Dexter may not have cheated on Rita after all. Hey, I'm not excusing the cheating, I'm just saying Gayle certainly didn't help matters.
Side note: Anyone notice that the Butcher suspect was Haywire from Prison Break? Hey, it was season one when it was decent, what can I say.
I did forget to mention Doakes and LaGuerta last week, though I did of course notice it. In this episode it's brought up again, and it's sorta strange to picture the two of them together one before, then working completely professionally together later.
Still there's more hinting at a relationship coming between Deb and Lundy. I knew I wasn't crazy when I thought there might be something there a few episodes ago, though an overwhelming number of people voted against that theory in my poll.
Until next week, when I'm sure the heat will continue to mount onto Dexter from Doakes and likely Lundy.
