Dissecting Dexter’s Consequences in 812: “Remember the Monsters?”

Lumberjack Dexter, Hannah, and Harrison almost make it on their flight to Rio when Jacob Elway shows up at the airport, threatening the life they planned to share together. After getting airport security onto Elway’s case to defuse the situation, Dexter inadvertently delays all succeeding flights until after Hurricane Laura passes through Miami. Meanwhile, news that Debra is in critical condition after getting shot by Oliver Saxon reaches Dexter shortly after this delay, fortifying his desire for vengeance upon the Brain Surgeon. Though Dexter believes he has transcended the need to kill, his petulance toward Saxon makes this kill far more personal than any other kill he has performed. Once Saxon is taken care of, the only loose end left in Miami is Debra, who would otherwise be left to vegetate in Miami Central hospital.

DEXTER (Season 5)

Dexter’s two separate worlds collide when Astor and a friend break into the family house where Dexter is keeping Lumen; on top of that, Miami Metro knows Dexter is seeing Jordan Chase in search of ways to cope with Rita’s death. When Dexter steps up as a father to protect Astor and her friend, Harry admits that perhaps he overlooked the humanity within him, begging the question . . . was Dexter born to be a serial killer, or made into one?

The Bodies

Dexter is determined to keep his life compartmentalized so that his after-hours vocation cannot bleed into his everyday life (and ultimately so that an accident like Rita’s never happens again). Although he believes that Lumen is no longer his problem, she calls him and tells him she needs help disposing of a body: she shot one of her assailants. Miami Metro is called there and nearly catches Dexter in the middle of his mess; however, he manages to weasel his way out of it as he usually does. Dexter promises to help Lumen avenge her attackers because he cannot “get revenge for Rita’s death.” Lumen even starts to become a partner to Dexter, someone he cannot help but get attached to. The Santa Muerte killers are tracked down in the Mayan Club and Deb finally shoots one in the head to put a stop to it.

Internal Affairs and Liabilities in 504: “Beauty and the Beast” & 505: “First Blood”

Take note of the leopard thong.

Lumen has become a problem, given the fact that she doesn’t trust Dexter, nor does she plan on leaving Miami any time soon, at least not until justice is served. Deb and Quinn’s romantic entanglement deepens; the Santa Muerte killers are still at large; and Quinn hires a guy busted by I.A. to look into Dexter Morgan for him after being suspended from work for approaching the Mitchells about Kyle Butler’s identity. Meanwhile, Dexter continues to worry about Harrison’s well-being after witnessing Rita’s death.
