I returned from a 10 day Thanksgiving trip with family earlier this week. Our far outpost was Miami, so seeing the two Dexter episodes I had missed when I was gone was an even bigger treat than it usually is. Dexter is the best thing on TV these days, hands down.
Deb becomes more and more interesting to me. She has world-class self esteem issues, along with a potty mouth and a big time anger management problem. Nevertheless, it's easy to understand why these weaknesses, coupled with her daddy issues, might appeal to a bright older guy like Lundy. Debra's pathological neediness is the sort of thing that might appeal to a fellow like Lundy - and Deb's looks don't hurt, either. I nearly choked when Lundy said something about being 20 years older than Deb. Keith Carradine, who plays Lundy, is actually 30 years older than Jennifer Carpenter, who plays Debra.
I agree with an opinion expressed by others that, one way or another, Lila has to go. I'll hate it, though. Not only is she incredibly sexy, her sheer craziness is appealing in an odd way, although I doubt that Dexter would agree. Dex has to do something about her, if somebody else doesn't do it first.
Dexter's problems with Doakes are inspired television. I have no idea how the writers plan to get Dexter free of his dilemma to either rid himself of Doakes or be exposed as a serial killer but I bet it gets resolved in a way that leaves Dexter unexposed.
