Dexter -- "Hop a Freighter" -- 12/05/10

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
By djariya at 2010-10-03

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Somebody outside of the department is showing a vested interest in Dexter and Lumen's clandestine activities, forcing Dexter to engage in his own special kind of damage control. Meanwhile, Debra is zeroing in on the whereabouts of the missing Barrel Girl suspects; Quinn is reticent about getting more deeply involved in a recent homicide.


Episode 11 of 12

Next week is the season finale.

As some of you probably saw in my other thread, Dexter was renewed for a 6th season this past week.

Yep, looks like the spoiler I found on IMBD about this episode was the real deal.

Second to last episode already?

Such a damn shame, this is one of the only shows I actually like.

Wow, this season has flown by. Can't believe there are only 2 episodes left.

This.

On the brightside, at least my DirecTV bill will go back down to its normal amount.

Great episode, but was it just me or was it shorter than other episodes have been? It sure felt like it.

I actually noticed that myself. I was walking to the tv to turn it off at 9:46, so it was definitely a few minutes shorter than normal.

Looks like Quinn might be fucked.

His name is on the recording equipment Liddy checked out, his blood is on Quinn's shoe...

That was Murphy. Robocop makes his debut next week. Dexter is in real trouble. Your move, creep.

Really enjoying this season. I will be pissed if they kill Lumen next week. That girl does not deserve to die, and it's lazy storytelling to kill her.

So I guess Deb showers and keeps multiple sets of clothes as the police station b/c she's not living with Dexter, and she was back to being pissed at Quinn this week so she's not living there.

Predictions...

Dollars to donuts says that Lumen will get caught taking Jordan Chase out, and end up taking the fall alone, refusing to implicate Dexter.

Likewise, Quinn will go down for Liddy's murder, since there's too much evidence tying the two together (blood on the shoe, cheking out surveillance equipment under his name, all of the phone calls), and there's no evidence, other than Quinn's own testimony, connecting Dexter to Liddy. Except for those pictures, but I have a theory...

Also have a feeling that Deb is going to start putting things together... especially when she busts Lumen, who she will recognize as Dexter's special friend. (Will she find those photographs in Quinn's apartment before Dexter does?)

The nanny is a Satanist who will attempt to use little Harry as a blood sacrifice.

Re: Dexter -- "Hop a Freighter" -- 12/05/10

Great episode. The season finale is going to be great. Call me crazy but I'm hoping for more of a cliffhanger ending rather then the typical everything goes right for Dexter ending.

Pure speculation but I don't think things will end well for Quinn. I've really started to like him too. I'd be kind of upset if it ends with Dexter letting him take the fall for Liddy's death though. Dexter would look like too much of a dick and it seems that he's ok with Quinn now that he knows that Deb loves him and that he's been trying to drop the whole "case". I'm hoping they don't rehash season 2's ending either.

Count me in as someone that doesn't want to see Lumen die either. I would like to see her go though, maybe not permanently but I would like to see her go back home after they take down Jordan Chase. I say that because I don't see where they can take her from here... she's not going to continue killing, I don't think that would make much sense... so will she just be the girlfriend that looks after Harrison and is ok with Dexter being a serial killer? Also, her going home would bring her story full circle. And that can still open up the possibility of her coming back next season, if they so choose.

More speculation but an interesting twist could be the cops getting to Jordan Chase before Dexter and Lumen get there. Instead of him getting killed, he gets arrested and admits everything and pins Lumen as one of his victims. Maybe Deb figures out she's the vigilante but they can't arrest her on that alone, too circumstantial. But it creates a logical path for Deb to at least begin realizing what Dexter really is.

I noticed that too. I don't think it's necessary to know where Deb has been since she broke it off with Quinn but it would have been nice to have her simply drop a line saying that she got a new place. And another really minor thing, but I hope Dexter makes it to Harrison's birthday party. We already know he's a terrible dad but I don't want the whole Astor/Cody/Bad father crap to come up again anytime soon.

And just a random question: Are the FBI still looking for Trinity? I know he's dead but shouldn't that case still be going on? Last I remember, they took the case away from Miami Homicide. It would be interesting to see them somehow bring that back into play next season. Maybe the Feds come back because there was a Trinity type killing in Miami. We would know it's a copycat but the FBI would think he's back.

Re: Dexter -- "Hop a Freighter" -- 12/05/10

Since no one asked...

Quinn was doomed from the moment he started dating Deb. He'll only go to prison, which is still better better than being murdered or flayed alive (and then unceremoniously dumped off-screen between seasons). I think the only one of her boyfriends who was never tortured or killed was the guy who wrote children's books.

Jordan Chase somehow dies at Lumen's hand and her nifty new mother-of-pearl pocket knife, which is probably the worst murder weapon imaginable. A butter knife would do more damage.

Lumen survives, but once vengeance is hers, she comes to realize that she's not like Dexter and has no desire to keep killing. Her job complete, she moves back to Minnesota to reclaim her life, but the door is left open for her return.

Deb, reeling from Quinn's arrest, discovers Dexter disposing of Chase's body. Dexter has some 'splainin' to do, but his explanation re: Lumen doesn't reveal anything beyond killing the rapists from this season. Deb is terribly wounded, but decides to keep the info to herself. She magically forgets about the Doakes situation from season 2 and still doesn't suspect that her brother is a serial killer.

Good episode; I'm going to miss Julia Stiles and her braless, braless ways.

Between that and the other Fuentes brother still being out there, I'm wondering if these storylines have kind of slipped through the cracks or if there will be some type of resolution.

I liked Quinn's heart-to-heart with Deb. Especially the line (I'm trying to remember the exact words):

"You say what you mean .... usually with a lot of filthy words I haven't heard before"

This season got ridiculously better in its second half, shame it's over next week.

For as good as this show is at "wrapping things up" It almost seems like they really didn't know what was going on in the first part of the season. They crafted these story lines that would just seem odd to drop. Trinity, the Fuentes Brother, the new detective who ratted out Deb, that we haven't seen in weeks. Just seems odd that a series that does such a great job with writing would leave these threads out there with no resolution.

They could be using some of these for season 6, but I don't think it will be possible to wrap them all up in just one episode.

Quinn's love speech to Deb was one of the best ever. Ever. And he delivered it in a really good way.

So, I will be really surprised if nothing happens with the baby sitter. All the calls, all the questions, that has to mean something, right?

I'm calling it now, the last scene of the show will be Harrison's birthday party in slow motion while Dexter narrates.

Also, the nanny is an imbecile. A magician at a party for a one-year-old?
