Decent enough episode. They still need to touch on Brian and Rita. It's getting back on track though.

Show seems to be pulling a 180. Still dumb in certain aspects, but it's not the mess it's been as of the last few years. It's not wasting any time and the stakes feel real. I'm loving the Dexter/Deb relationship as it is right now.

They'll touch on both aspects I'm sure, but you can't just cram everything in the first couple episodes

Almost exactly what I came in to say. Best moment of the episode was definitely Deb's "I am the worst fucking detective in the world", because I have lost count of how many times I've said that in the last year.

Obviously the Russian gangster subplot is there to tie things up with Dexter and what he does, but it just doesn't feel as interesting or as vital as the Dexter / Deb stuff and I can't imagine how that will change.

When Dex was explaining how he 'sees blood', it was the first time that I was actually creeped the fuck out by him since season 1.

Agreed. Just the way he was talking about it...so creepy.

I thought the same thing during that bit and figured there'd be other people who thought the same. They should go further into just showing how fucked up he is I think, and showing him talking about it's a good way to go.

Does this show really start to get bad? It's so disappointing to hear that because I've been so into this show. Almost finished with season 2.

Yeah, I don't think it's gotten bad really. I think that because Season 4 was so strong, it's inevitably failed to live up to heightened expectations since then. S5 was probably my least favourite, but S6 had it's moments.

Honestly, yeah it does start to get "that bad." Season 4 was pretty awesome, with a great back half. Jon Lithgow is in it, and he's the shit. But I can't agree with the poster above becuase even then, the story line was beginning to become stale and unimaginative. Season 5 & 6 were complete wastes, outside of a few moments that directly correlate to the current season. My roomate hasn't seen either of those seasons and quite honestly, I feel I could save him 24 hours by just summarizing the key plotpoints in 5 minutes. You could make the case that every TV series that has a run of longer than 5 years has at least 1 season that was somewhat phoned in, but at least the ride was enjoyable. Season 5 & 6 weren't. I don't know how else to describe it other than by saying it started to feel a bit like a dumb mans show. People are being killed so bro's like it, but there was a serious lack of substance and storytelling.

But everything written recently is spot on. This season has so far brought me back to the first season of Dexter, where the audience is still a bit shocked at what this man is and the thought process that surrounds him.

5 and 6 suuuuuuuuucked

Enjoying this season so far but I'm still cautious

I like the pacing so far. Hope they don't get too crazy and lump too much nonsense in the span of 3 episodes or so
