It’s not that the Lumen (Julia Stiles) storyline isn’t interesting, it just feels…lacking somehow. Perhaps it’s because we don’t have a clear villain yet, or perhaps it’s just that Trinity is too difficult an act to follow. Something just seems a bit flat.
The most poignant scene came at episode’s end when Dexter (Michael C. Hall) discovers Lumen in the bath. This may have served not only as a terrible reminder of Dexter’s past consequences, but a warning to the inevitable demise of any who carry the dark passenger. It also taught us a bit more about the passenger’s true nature: it’s a search for inner peace that can never be fulfilled…at least not in this way.
