I have come as far as 60% of the book but I honestly found it so boring I'm having the hardest time finishing it. So for the sake of ease, what happens in the end? Does Deb recover? Who's Moloch? Is it worth reading Dexter is Delicious?
Edit: I’ve changed “patois” to “style” because I’m not sure it’s the right word.
BTW: it’s been several years since my three entry-level linguistic classes. Feel free to correct me if I got the wrong vocab.
Season 5: Episode 5 “First Blood.”
Around the 25:00 mark, Dexter goes on the prowl underneath a bridge/homeless encampment where many sex offenders live. When he approaches someone, he changes his voice to be more gruff and modifies his dialect and style to a lower socioeconomic style.
Must be easy for someone who has allegedly has no emotions to “switch gears” so quickly.
What other characters did you find of Dexter’s interesting?
Bought tix for the wrong showtime. Trying to get rid of tix for Saturday, Nov 24th, 2pm showtime. $35 each I will eat the fees, so cheaper than face value. 3rd row dead center. Best seats in the house. 4 tix available.
Basically just wanted to say I’m super disappointed that Lumen is just abruptly gone. I’m not one for tv show romances but it was awesome seeing them together! In my eyes she easily became a piece of the show and Dexter in her short but really well done time..
Damn man. Hopefully she ends up returning somehow.
Edit: Just wanted to add my biggest gripe is with how abruptly she left. There’s no satisfying end or explanation here. It’s almost like “oh hey we couldn’t afford her so she’s gone”. Or even they hired a brand new writer/writers who thew the old script out. Not saying that’s what happened at all, but that’s the feeling the show gives off. It threw me so off track actually that I’m probably going to take a small break from my marathon. Maybe I’m being a baby about it, but seriously wasted potential..
Seriously, compared to last season she looks like they slapped 10 pounds of foundation on her
Is there any reason to keep listening... That was awful. So Dexter is possessed, I am so glad the show didn't follow that path. A sociopath serial killer is so much more interesting than a imaginary evil force playing drums that can compel him to kill. I always thought Dexter was the monster "born in blood" is there any redeeming quality to the story now moving forward?
Personally I would make it to where in season 3 Matthews lied about Harry committing suicide and he's been holding Harry captive, then dexter gets Matthews arrested and gets Harry back. Then for the next seasons he's a sidekick. Rita still dies but lumen and Hannah are never introduced. Deb finds out about dexter in like season 5, she's fine about it in season 6. Then towards the end of season 6 (which would be the final season in this change) LaGuerta finds out and convinces everyone that Dexter is a serial killer so Deb, Harry, and dexter take Harrison and leave on their boat. What do you guys think about this and how would you change the plot yourself if you could.
Like most people, I despised the ending of Dexter because it felt so empty, and would have been much more satisfying to see Dexter get the chair to end it all. But I realized the ending we got was the whole point of the show: Dexter never really cared. He was able to feel more than ever after connecting with his brother in the first season, which is why the show took place in that period of his life as opposed to any other period. But it’s important to note that Dexters narration was always monotone and uncaring throughout all eight seasons. They ended it the way they did to show that regardless of all the progress Dexter made with his feelings, he always was and always will be an uncaring, psychopathic, serial killing monster.
Rewatching the show and just watched the part where Dexter found his mothers killer. It makes me angry that Dexter actually let stupid ol Lila stop him from killing him. It would have been one of the most satisfying kills. The only thing was it seemed like he didn’t go prepared. Just wanted to know if the feeling is mutual for anyone else?
So I’m rewatching the series and I’m in season 3 right now. Whenever I would talk about the first 4 seasons, I would always say season 3 was a little lower in quality in comparison to 1, 2, and 4. But going back now, I realize it has one of my favorite side plots in the entire series: Dexter’s search for the perfect key lime pie for Camilla.
Camilla was one of my favorite side characters because she was sort of like a low key adoptive mother to Dexter. No, she didn’t teach him the Code like Harry, but she still looked out for Dexter in her own way. Destroying files on his childhood, stalling Doakes when he came snooping around (nearly at the cost of her job). She was basically the only other person aside from Harry that even came close to knowing Dexter for who he was.
I’m not sure what it was, but their last scene together just left me speechless. Dexter poisoning the slice, her thanking him and telling him that she knew about his family, him confessing that he killed his brother, and her accepting it. Great scene. Great story. All making season 3 worth the watch.
