I think we're in store for a great end to this season. It seems they still have a lot to cover so each episode should be packed with action/story.

Wow another knock-out episode. Dexter acting on raw emotions again by taking care of the boyfriend of Astor's friend's mom was great.
Spoiler:
The preview for next week showing Peter Weller apparently witnessing Lumen killing somebody just wow. Looks like that may be the end of that character unless something unexpected happens. Shame because I was beginning to really like her.
also
Spoiler:
Deb apparently catching onto the fact that that someone is taking care of Chase's associates is intriguing. Leads me to wonder if this is how she will find out about Dexter or if he will find a way to get around it again.
Either way these next three episodes are going to be BIG.

Why didn't Lumen recognize Chase's voice at the seminar?

Season was so so for me until this episode. Now we are talking! I can't wait to watch the rest of the season.

Amazing episode... everything is converging. And Harry has returned!

Anyone else suspect that this is the season Deb finally finds out about Dex?

Nah, unless it's a cliffhanger at the very end. There's too many other plot threads to resolve.

Three episodes left, and we still don't know who the other guys in the picture are.

Quinn has sure become sympathetic... seems like they have something in mind for him.

Agree that it looks like Deb is getting close to finding out about Dexter, being stuck in the file room. Seems like it's only a matter of time until she finds something.

Tick... tick... tick...

Quinn is going to die at the end. He's Deb's boyfriend, remember what happens to Deb's lovers, they die.

I'm just guessing here but I can see Quinn discovering Dexter's secret, then dying killing Robocop or something like that.

My favorite line of the night was when Dexter was putting the smackdown on Astor's friends Dad and he says to Dex "What are you some kind of psycho?" in which Dexter replies, "Not tonight, just a concerned parent" Brilliant.

He appears to be asking if people who find Sarah Hyland (who is almost 20) attractive also find Christina Robinson (who is 13?) attractive.

That's what I was thinking too but honestly that seemed too stupid to be possible.

I didn't think I could hate anyone more than Astor....but that was before I saw Emo Astor.

This show definitely makes me feel the most bipolar out of anything I watch. There's so much I don't like about it, but it seriously is the only show that you can not guess where it's going to end up when you start the season. The branching paths they go down are almost always a surprise.

Really looking forward to how everything pans out over the next few weeks.

Also, Julia Stiles is not a "hot blonde".

Yeah I don't want to sound too mean, but...that was a bad line. As well as whenever Robocop mentioned her in the past, he'd say "His pretty little friend" or something along those lines.
