Follies, Parallelism, and Unveiled Secrets in 412: “The Getaway”

Faceoff

Dexter and Trinity face off in the final episode of season four. Everything is at stake for Dexter – from his reputation, to his secret, to his family – since Arthur Mitchell has discovered who he truly is: Dexter Morgan, family man, blood spatter analyst, brother, husband, and father. Once Miami Metro discovers that “Trinity framed Stan Beaudry,” the FBI comes in to take down Trinity, who appears to have “skipped town.” Even when Dexter believes he has triumphed, for he is different than Trinity, he has actually failed. R.I.P. Rita Bennett Morgan, survived by Astor and Cody Bennett and Dexter and Harrison Morgan, the duo “born in blood.” What could this mean for little Harrison? Have Harry’s sins come full-circle to Dexter damaging Harrison the way his father “damaged” him?

Daddy Issues in 410: “Lost Boys” & 411: “Hello, Dexter Morgan”

Postcards

Dexter becomes further involved with Arthur Mitchell’s family and lets Jonah know that he’s tracking them down; whereas Jonah suspects Arthur’s (and Kyle Butler’s) demons, others don’t. Deb suspects Christine Hill of shooting Frank Lundy. Her exchanges with Hill only serve to accentuate that the two of them are no different; they act just as their fathers have in order to gain approval, attention, and acceptance. Dexter juggles far too many things, as he seems to do this season, and that leads to Trinity following him right into the heart of Miami Metro.

Alcoholism and the Birth of Serial Killers 408: “Road Kill” & 409: “Hungry Man”

Bloody Home

Dexter suffers after the revelation that he killed an innocent man (Jonathan Farrow) after lacking sufficient evidence to support his guilt; Quinn becomes suspicious of Dexter. Debra, after being thrown off of the Trinity case for she was officially a “victim” of Trinity, starts back-seat driving the investigation through Quinn; later, after Masuka and Deb figure out that the shooter was too short to be Trinity himself, Deb is put back on the case. Dexter accompanies Arthur Mitchell to Tampa on a build (or attending a Weather Conference, as he tells everyone); he admits to Trinity that he killed an innocent man, leading to the revelation that Trinity also was responsible for the death of an innocent person. Rita accidentally kisses Elliot next door. Dexter spends Thanksgiving with the Mitchells. Ultimately, we discover that Christine Hill is Trinity’s daughter( gasp!).

Freudian Themes and Parallelism in 406: “If I Had a Hammer” & 407: “Slack Tide”

See 405 for Identical Image Wall Parallel

Dexter’s fascination with Arthur Mitchell, or Trinity, grows  as he witnesses just how wonderfully camouflaged he is. Debra is back from her sick leave and is determined to take down Trinity to avenge Frank Lundy, which could possibly make her a target. Dexter puts off taking down Trinity, for he wants to learn from him; in the meantime, he focuses his killing energies on Jonathan Farrow, bloody photographer and woman-abuser, only to discover later that Miami Metro has uncovered solid DNA evidence that supports Farrow’s assistant being the true killer. What does this mean for Dexter Morgan? We shall see.
