804: “Scar Tissue” — Preliminary Predictions

It seems as though A.J. Yates is the killer. I still think there is someone else involved with the murders. Everything was so neatly laid out for Dexter to find in A.J.’s kill room … I don’t trust this guy. He’s aware of Dexter, so why would he make it so easy for him to find the girl, the jars, the brain surgeon plans, power saws, etc.?

As for the people we see in the next episode — it seems as though it’s that kid who kidnaps Vogel. I don’t think they’ll off Vogel just yet. I think she will last throughout the season.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Debra tries killing herself again and/or Dexter. The ending of tonight’s episode was what I suggested a few posts back. This was a failed Romeo and Juliet suicide attempt.

Be on the look out for the full treatment of 804: “Scar Tissue” this week!

What do YOU think episode 4 will reveal about the Brain Surgeon?



Dissecting Dexter is “taking stab at Showtime’s Dexter, intelligently.” Showtime’s Dexter, based off of Jeff Lindsay’s novels, is rich in diction, themes, and cinematic clues that culminate in telling the story of what it means to be human.

This blog was created to share my insights on Dexter. I hope to illuminate the underpinnings and thematic threads that run throughout the series to both new viewers and series fanatics.

I hope this blog will provide you with food for thought—ham, eggs, and blood oranges, to be precise—for the next time you watch, or re-watch, the series.
