Dexter- First Blood review/recap

We are getting a little sick of Dexter’s moaning monologue worrying about his son, Harrison, possibly having his own dark passenger. It’s a baby, Dexter. Watch him in a few years. Dexter is highly educated. He should know that it’s too early to tell. We get that it’s cute how overanxious Dexter is, but his voiceovers about his paranoia are getting old.

Dexter went to breakfast with Lumen and tried to get her to leave town and go home, but Lumen wasn’t having any of that. She wanted revenge, so she broke into Boyd’s old house, found information on his old cellmate, and went out to kill him. Dexter also tracked this man down and sloppily ascertained that he wasn’t one of the men who tortured Lumen. Dexter stopped Lumen from shooting this man and gave her a plane ticket back to her family in Minnesota. After being patted down by security, a petrifying experience for someone who didn’t like to be touched that much now in front of men, Lumen left the airport and is still in Miami.

We like Lumen, and we are glad she is still around. We want her to get her revenge. She’s been trustworthy so far. Dexter should be happy she didn’t rat him out and help her kill those guys. Yeah, she’s a little crazy, revenge won’t help, and it will take her to a dark place. But we want to see it happen. She’s not going to stop until she gets some kind of closure anyway.

In Deb Land, Deb is still living at Quinn’s and treating him like crap. Not that we care much. Why should it be different with Quinn? You know a TV couple is a bust when no one anticipates their hook up with relish. This is a ho-hum couple if we ever saw one. Lundy and the ice truck killer seemed to get in the farthest. We want Deb to actually let a guy in, and we want it to be one that Dexter likes. Quinn had Batista and Officer Manzon to work with, since Quinn is on unpaid leave. Deb tracked down the source of a stamp on the suspect and found out that it was from nightclub. Batista suspected LaGuerta of cheating on him when she was really just helping internal affairs on a sting so that internal affairs would drop the investigation into Batista. The LaGuerta/Quinn/Deb asides had better get interesting, or we are going to start hating these characters for wasting our times. We don’t care that Quinn hired someone to investigate Dexter. We want someone to investigate that creepy nanny.

A solid, but uneventful episode. Dexter didn’t even kill someone. He just tried to get Lumen out of Miami. This show's insanely boring supporting storylines this year are making us antsy.

C+, because we’re impatient. Ok, maybe a B-. Somewhere between those.
