Could Christina have been the Dexter shooter?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 18th 2009 5:36PM
One of our ever alert readers pointed out a theory in last Sunday's episode of Dexter that sounds so crazy, it might just actually work. You've got to love TV logic. The craziest theories gain the most traction.

TV Squad reader Frank Militello aka mello one proposed that Christina Hill, the plucky reporter and Quinn's nosy girlfriend, may have been the trigger man, er, woman who wounded Debra and killed Frank Lundy.

The theory came on the heels of Debra's realization that the Trinity Killer could not have shot her since her wounds were too far down her abdomen. Christina also revealed to Quinn that her editor is one bloodless story away from firing her and she need more ink that "bleeds" and "leads."

Could Christina be Lundy's killer and if so, how would you feel about that?

I thought this 2 weeks before Deb noticed her shot wounds. The girlfriend was too annoying and unnecessary and was watching them talking to each other outside the apartment which was suspect, so I figured i thad to be her. I also called that Trinity has 4 victims when he was building the casket. I thought he must use it to bury the 4th victim, so they never find them, therefore they only think he kills 3.

I immediately thought it was Christina once they determined Trinity was too tall, she seems like a wack job. But I like the idea of Trinity's wife, that would make sense at least in the way it has been argued here.

Definitely not Anton.

All you people suggesting Anton really have not watched the show since he had no idea she was with Lundy until after she and Lundy were shot. Anybody remember the convo in the hospital room. Plus Anton is easily over 6' ft tall and Masuka and the shooter are much shorter than Deb. Now back to the topic, it wouldn't matter if she is the killer since Trinity is visiting her this week.

This is turning into "Who shot Mr. Burns?" from The Simpsons a few years ago, hehe.

What if the shooter was in a car and sitting down? Depending make and model, its highly possible. Except for a shot from Masuka's monster truck!

I agree...I think the idea that the shooter is relatively short is the red herring...the shooter could easily have been in a car or crouched behind a car.

The reporter is probably just a red herring, if that.

Every season of Dexter has a theme. Season one was family, two was relationships, three was friendship, and four is parenthood. How do you be a killer and still be a good father/husband? Following this, it makes sense that the killer is Trinity's wife.

Dexter always wonders what Rita would do if she found out his secret, and everything he finds out about Trinity's family is a major surprise. The ultimate surprise would be finding out that Arthur's wife found out his secret, but then decided to protect him. Although she serves no major purpose, they keep showing her, as if to remind us she's around.

My money is on her.

Looks about the right height for the distance he probably was from them.

While watching the episode I thought of this too. Part of me is hoping this isn't the case because it seems to be too obvious. It'd be much more tragic if this shooting was really just a random act of violence with a gunman who has really bad aim.

I just want to know when the photo of Dexter's mom half shredded is going to come into play. You know someone is going to find that photo (Quinn?).

I'm also hoping that the Trinity Killer doesn't bite it this season and somehow makes it past the finale. Dexter has had way to many nice and tidy happy ending finales. It'd be good to have at least some sort of conflict unresolved for the next season.
