    I thought for sure Dex was going to take out the man who chain-sawed his mother!

    Who thinks he'll go back and finish the job... ? He's getting careless and leaving loose ends.

    And what's up with Lila - see Dexter's face when she admitted to killing her boyfriend by burning the house down - and the red colouring of blood on the 'cottage porn' picture?

    This is getting good ... who thinks last season was better than this one or vice versa?

    For sure this one is better. A couple of things I thought were strange last year was how Dexter never caught on at his sister's boyfriend was the killer. If he is supposed to be a big bad serial killer, that would be obvious to him. Secondly in the last episode when the cops came across Rudy's body and automatically called it a suicide. Wasn't he strapped down to a table? If you can slit your throat without using your hands, I'd like to see that!

    I can't believe Dexter is going to let his mother's murder live. Somehow an ass beating and telling the guy how he's affected his life just doesn't seem to fit the crime. When he was in the bar beating him up I was thinking about all the DNA evidence being left at the crime scene (especially when he spit on him).

    How long do you think it will be before Deborah ends up having sex with the FBI agent? Or is he simply a mentor to her? Either way there is some chemistry there between them.

    As the season progresses I am liking the lieutenant less and Doakes a whole lot more.

    I was wondering about that. Using luminal and a black light to clean your boat does seem a bit extreme. Then again he is a clean freak and a blood splatter expert. He could argue he's obsessive-compulsive and trying to get rid of any fish blood although it does seem a stretch. It will be interesting to see what happens if his actions were caught on surveillance cameras.

    I am liking Lila and Dex together .. but poor Rita! I thought Lundy was suspicious of Dex, until he said he couldn't take another 'titty joke' from Masuka! I've seen previews for next week's episode ... Doakes is back after Dexter. This is getting good. Dex is changing soooo much!!!

    Lila is even stranger than Dexter, if that is possible. I do feel badly for Rita, but she is such milk toast for someone like Dexter, and while I think he did care about her, she mostly served as a normalizing external feature to make Dexter seem to fit into a world in which he clearly feels alien. Am I the only one whose rage at Harry is growing by leaps and bounds? Turns out his altruism in taking Dex in was motivated by less benevolent reasons, (which explains why his brother was left to fend for himself as a child) and he certainly took an innocent boy and transformed him into a psychopath with is "code of Harry." Doakes is just plain creepy, and I am beginning to wonder how much longer Dexter can afford to let him live. Now that Doakes has killed he just might fit the qualifications as a future victim, and he certainly is pushing Dexter in that direction.

    I don't think Harry turned him into a psychopath, but used his set of rules to protect Dexter. He must have noticed Dexter's behavior growing up and realized it was something he could not change.

    Doakes doesn't yet meet the criteria for Dexter's Rosewood box. So far he has killed in self-defense. That was awesome the way Dexter got Doakes off his ass, however now that he is on administrative leave, he has all the time in the world to get back at Dexter.

    I do have sympathy for Rita. She was a good accessory to make him appear normal and blend in with society. They are a good-looking couple. Lila on the other hand comforts yet controls Dexter. Nice touch with the Bay Harbor butcher manifest.

    Dexter puzzles me with his sudden lust given he is not human and unable to have emotions. I think eventually Lila will threaten Rita and Dexter will have to protect her for the sake of the kids and his feelings for her. It's a similar story all over again. He must do away with the person who understands him for a life that rejects him. Being a serial killer can't be easy.

    Lila is like heroin. It's probably fun to try, but extremely dangerous.

    Doingtime,
    I know the show portrays Harry as realizing that Dexter was different from other kids and somehow needed to be taught a code to channel his impulses, but while it makes for a great show, in real life I would like to think that someone in a caretaking role would have the decency to take the very young Dexter to a child shrink, realizing that he is suffering from unbelieveable trauma, dissociation, and PTSD. He was only three when he saw both parents butchered and then lived with the dead bodies for a few days, drenched in their blood. With help a child could have been steered in a different direction, and followed a path to healing instead of simply following "the code" that allows his psychopathy to play out in a more acceptable way.
    Lila is so strange she makes Dex look like the normal one! She gives me the creeps, as does Doakes. You're right, now that Doakes has been put on leave heaven only knows what revenge he will plan for Dex. Doakes is so disturbing to me that if Dex took him out I would probably be applauding it, which is the reason the show is so appealing to me. It is so well written that I find myself rooting for the only one (Dexter) who is labelled a psycho, although the ones without the label I often find more diabolical.

    Did you notice Dexter knows something isn't right with the fire? The light should have been wrecked if it was a real fire.

    Dtoma... Dexter is coming back to humanity, hence the emotion... especiallywhen he killed that guy for insulting Rita.
    Lila has certainly pushed Dexter further back to humanity, but Rita and kids was the true start, with showing him true love. I also think, Lila might be a Dexter canidate, with her "accidental" fires, remember her ex died in a fire she set.

    I had to watch this week's episode a day later because of work ... but ...

    Regarding the light ... see I got something else out of that? I saw Dexter looking at the light and seeing that she had gotten it fixed ... as in she gets what she wants and will manipulate to get it. She knew that Dexter would be with Rita and the kids ...

    Another thing. I don't get the title of this episode: That Night, a Forest Grew. Is it because Dexter is planting seeds with regard to the Bay Harbour Butcher case?

    And Lundy. Lundy is going to catch him .. he's too close for comfort.

    I just about crapped my pants when Dexter head-butted Doakes! "I own you." LOL!

    There must be more to Gabriel too .. or was he a story-filler? lol I thought Lundy was the 'father-figure' to Debra!?
