Episode Recap: "I Had a Dream"

In this season's penultimate episode of Dexter, trust is an issue, honesty and forgiveness are hard to come by, and adult entertainment is hard to avoid.

I thought Dexter was a goner when he was kidnapped and thrown in the trunk of a car. I do remember thinking it was a pretty nice car for the Skinner to be driving. Turns out that was some good detective work on my part. When the trunk opened and Dexter leapt out and threw a punch at his captor, I was horrified until I saw that punch connect with Masuka's face. Relief. Welcome to Dexter's bachelor party. I loved how he was sitting in that seat in the middle drinking champagne from the bottle with the slo-mo "adult entertainers" dancing in the background. Just like a hip-hop video.

Miguel is out of control and the point is driven home by the fact that he is seen hanging out with Ramon. He's the perfect choice for Miguel's bodyguard since he is currently unemployed. But I fear that the two of them together is not a good thing.

Dexter lets slip that Harry cheated on Debra's mother with a CI. Bad move. "Oops." Debra doesn't want to believe that her father wasn't perfect. She could have lived her whole life not knowing, but Dexter ends up using it to his advantage. The realization that he should have asked his sister to stand up for him at his wedding, spreads across his face. Debra is on board with the idea, "Absolf*ckinlutely."

Anton tells Debra about hearing the sound of the Skinner's blade cutting into him and the sound of his own screams and it was spine tingling. She can't console him and he can't console her.

I think it's interesting how Rita still doesn't look pregnant. On most other shows when people are pregnant, the kids are usually 18 before you blink.

When Deb tells Quinn she's not taking Anton to the wedding, he offers to "carpool" with her. "Are you hitting on me?" But her conversation with Dexter later when she admits to needing someone more together than Anton, more like Harry, puts things into perspective. Dexter points out that Quinn is like Dad. Hmmm, perhaps something will come of this partnership after all.

Quinn hands Debra some change for the payphone and she breaks the case wide open. She's an awesome cop. Quinn takes one for the team when the Skinner tries to scalp him.
