Dexter Season 7 Episode 6

In the latest episode of Showtime’s Dexter, Michael C. Hall and costar Yvonne Strahovski had some major on screen chemistry. Like, majorly HOT and sweaty onscreen chemistry. It’s just what the doctor ordered since Dexter hasn’t had a real lover in quite some time. Last week, writers gave us a tease by having Michael C. Hall shirtless in bed while talking to his sister Debra. That was pretty creepy, but at this point we will take what we can get.

Dexter decides to fudge the blood report found on Wayne Randall’s victims so that Hannah will forgive him and hopefully let him into her house and her heart. He quickly finds that she has also murdered her former husband, her mentor and the woman who gave her the floral business, as well as a man that may have molested her in a halfway house shortly after the Randall murders. Gee, what could possibly go wrong here?

Meanwhile, Quinn is being bought out with bribe money from Isaac’s men and has discarded Isaac’s blood evidence at the police station. This means he will be out of jail soon with no probable evidence for the three murders in the bar. This bothered me because I felt like something of that magnitude would have security up the yin-yang and no police officer could just sneak into a closet and destroy evidence. It’s just another thing we have to avert our eyes from in order to suspend our realistic expectations.

Batista is all butt-hurt since Deb didn’t give him any credit for his suspicion of Alex’s suicide. He tells his sister Jamie that he wants to retire and buy a restaurant. This is pretty random. During this conversation, someone finally acknowledges or attempts to act like they care about Louis Green’s disappearance. Even though Louis was a major tool, you’d think Miami Metro would be all over this.

Deb and LaGuerta are still discussing the Bay Habor Butcher and LaGuerta decides to investigate more into the barrel girl case. Deb realizes that Dexter must have committed those murders and also realizes that he must have had an accomplice. She questions Dexter and he tells her the truth about Lumen. Deb is so over this whole thing now. Honestly, Dexter has disappointed me too over the last two seasons and I’m not even his sister. In many ways, he has lost his credibility.

Deb is also dating a novelist who covers true crime stories. He let’s her in on the Hannah secret and now she is mixed up with another shady bastard. Deb is a magnet for trouble.

Dexter doesn’t just have urges of the murderous persuasion, he also seems to be a bit vexed by Hannah regardless of her heinous crimes. He tells himself that he is tracking her to seek vengeance, but instead he takes her to a closed holiday display town that is equipped with artificial snow. Hannah is overjoyed, but Dexter gives her his infamous tranquilizer and she winds up on his table. Because Dexter is completely unstable these days, he ends up making sweet hot love to Hannah instead of killing her. In the end, we were happy that Dexter got a piece of ass because honestly, Quinn is looking pretty haggardly these days and Deb isn’t getting any.
