Dexter - In the Beginning review

So Dexter and Lumen did it. Huh. No, they didn’t kill Jordan Chase, they had sex. You violence-minded cretins. You’ve got to get your minds in the gutter. Is anyone else kind of surprised? Dexter and Lumen didn’t really have any romantic chemistry. If it weren’t for the fact that she accepts him as he is and that TV always pairs single people together, we would be completely shocked. It came out of nowhere for us. Does everyone on TV have to end up together? It was nice to see an nonsexual relationship on TV between a guy and a girl. They are both so damaged right now that they probably don’t need to add a relationship to the mix. We DO like to see Dexter getting in touch with his humanity and connecting. In his voiceover, he said, “With Lumen, I'm someone different. In her eyes, I'm not a monster at all." But how can this end well?

Deb is getting closer to the truth every day, and we hope this season ends with her finding it. Her theory is that there are two vigilantes picking off all the guys who killed the barrel girls. Right on, Deb. This would be the best time for her to find out, since she is so mad about the barrel girls. If it doesn’t end that way, it will feel like a huge cop-out and teasing of the viewer. We like that Deb and Quinn can still be good partners at work even though their romantic relationship is currently busted.

Emily Birch was so pretty, but the fact that she was in league with Chase was très freaky. The dirty cop Quinn hired to spy on Dexter caught sight of Lumen in full killer gear, next to Dexter, practicing some knife work, and he caught it on tape. We wonder how the Dirty Cop thing is going to end. Maybe only Lumen will get pinched, ending Julia’s stint on the show and Dexter’s new relationship, which we are still unsure about a day later. We liked seeing her get her first kill and like it though.

We like where most of this is going, especially how close Deb is to finding out about Dexter's true self. She's been a good sister long enough. She deserves to know.

Episode grade: B+
