Dexter - 412 - The Getaway
If I reviewed Dexter I suspect I would have a stronger opinion about the direction of the show. By reviewing shows I am forced to watch each episode twice and commit to whatever I write down about it. It forces you to discuss where the show is going and then reanalyze that constantly. With Dexter I have just been like a normal viewer, I have watched it all the way through not rewatching.

Dexter - 411 - Hello, Dexter Morgan
I’ve already written a lot about how I’m not so keen on Trinity continually evading escape so I won’t dwell. The final sequence where he works his way slowly through the police department to find Dexter was excellent. It’s something which only TV shows can do as an art form. That sense of one world invading another. It’s the same feeling I had when Ballard and Alpha arrive in the Dollhouse. You as a viewer know the significance of everything Trinity is seeing before he realizes it.

Dexter - 410 - Lost Boys
I have read on Alan Sepinwall’s blog the argument that Dexter’s character has changed in a negative way. So here in “Lost Boys” he is concerned with the victim of Trinity’s cycle rather than merely concerned with his own desire to kill. I don’t have a problem with it. I think the writing made it clear that Dexter was able to see the link between his own son(s) and Trinity’s young victim.
