DEXTER “A Horse of a Different Color” Review

DEXTER "A Horse of a Different Color" Season 6 Episode 4 – Dexter returned this week with "A Horse of a Different Color", and the title seemed very appropriate, as this was definitely an episode of a different color as compared to the first three installments. The first three episodes were good, but really lacked a feeling of focus that would set the season in motion. This week’s installment looked to change that, and I think it did a great job.
