Dexter 5.10 "In the Beginning" Review

 Dexter 5.10 In the Beginning Review

Nothing says true love quite like a knife through the heart.  When Lumen (Julia Stiles) emerged wearing her full murderer garb, complete with the shiny new gloves Dexter (Michael C. Hall) lovingly bought for her, it marked a turning point in their relationship.  "You look perfect," Dexter tells her, and we can't really argue with him.

That's because, despite the inevitable backlash that is sure to come from those fans securely in Rita's camp, Lumen is the only person in five seasons who has completely accepted Dexter for who he is.  Arguably, she's the first person he has ever truly loved, because she sees him and doesn't turn away.  I was weary of this development from the moment Lumen was introduced, but the way it was handled was close to perfect.  We can see it in the way Dexter looks at her throughout 5.10.  She's not just his partner anymore, she's his soulmate.
