Well, despite all the visions of Harry, he's done it. Dexter has shared the kill with Miguel. And it seemed to go well, until he went a-knocking all creepy-like at Ellen's door. Unfortunately, in keeping with past trends, Dexter will probably have to kill Miguel if he kills Ellen. Just like Rudy and Lila, the only people who have remotely understood Dexter, Miguel can't follow the code. Dexter actually seems to be the only person with the (moral?) fortitude to stick to it. This may be why he is such a sympathetic character while the other sometimes seem like sickos. Poor Dexter. He's finally not alone.. again.. but all good things must end.
I am so pissed that Anton is probably dead! Even since he missed breakfast, I knew how this episode would end. I was yelling "Don't be skinned.. DO NOT BE SKINNED!" the whole time. I love Anton. First of all, he is fiiine. I like just looking at him. Second of all, he is not a serial killer or really freakin old. Third of all, he pulls that big "I am a cop and naught but a cop!" stick out of Deb's butt. So she better save him. Deb as a character is way less annoying than in the past - maybe it's the hair? - and all I want for her is a shield and a boyfriend.
In other news, Rita is being a hormone-y biiitch. I'm a woman, but it was a chick move even for me that she said she didn't want an engagement ring when she really did. Poor, socially awkward Dexter, left counting down the months til birth. Thank goodness they finally bonded at the end. I prefer sweet Rita.
Angel's budding romance is cute, but doesn't seem to relate to the other plot threads. Maria's new friendship with Ellen was also nice to watch. I didn't realize how lonely she was after Doakes blew up. Speaking of her loneliness, does that woman just go after everyone? Tonight she asked out Angel, in Season 1 she was hitting on Dexter, she slept with her boss' boyfriend, and she has dated both Doakes and Prado. Geez. I even sensed some Callie/Erica vibes before Ellen started blatantly hitting on the not that cute bartender.
I was disappointed with Quinn's story. Letting someone's drug addiction slide is not as evil an act as I expected. There must be more to that. It's pretty cruel how he was stringing Anton along - is that what Yuki was investigating? - but it doesn't make me hate the guy.
I for one suspected that tree trimming boss as soon as he appeared. What a creeper! He was falsely jolly and way too calm and collected. If that teensy old man kills Anton I will flip.
Hopes? Fears? Fantasies anyone? Is anyone else as enamored with Anton as I am?
