Review: DEXTER 6.4 - A Horse of a Different Color

Thursday, 27 October 2011

For me this season of Dexter is just becoming more and more intriguing, I was a bit late on Dexter remember and haven’t seen seasons 1 – 4, I'm working on it.  I read up quite a bit on it and some people say they are getting a little sick of the show, how?  For me this is the best show on TV, I suppose we all like different stuff and that’s great but Dexter really is building up this season.

Unlike Person of Interest, Dexter is given a new target (for want of a better word) every season and this year it’s Travis and Gellar, or maybe it’s just Travis with many a fan believing that Gellar is nothing more than a fragment of Travis’s imagination kind of like the scenes Dexter shares with his father Harry.  So far this season anytime Gellar and Travis have been on screen together other actors have simply ignored Gellar, so what's going on here...Are we all guessing right, Gellar does not exist and Travis has a multiple personality disorder?  Or is this one very clever plot that by the writers that is going to trick us all?

The killing spree that Travis is currently on sees his tally at 3, I think.  Travis is working his way through the Book of Revelation and this week saw him attaching body parts to mannequin's before we saw the four horsemen tableau.  That really introduced us to just how far the Doomsday killer(s) are prepared to go.

Along with that we really saw Miami Metro's newest recruit step to the front, someone had to since Debra has been promoted.  Mike Anderson (Billy Brown) was the only level headed one there other than Debra, I really like this guy and think he is going to become a main character of the show which will hopefully run for at least another two seasons. 

Along with a new villain always comes an actor who can cut it alongside Michael C. Hall, those would be few and far between in my opinion but this season’s inclusion of Brother Sam (Mos Def) is proving a real treasure, in four episodes the two have already clocked up some pretty impressive screen time together and the scenes where they are both involved are by far the most entertaining, they can only get better and better as the story develops further.

As always with Dexter you get all of the heavy stuff but there is a lighter side to things usually brought to us by Dexter’s son Harrison, the detectives at Miami Metro or Dexter's fellow blood spatter expert Masuka (C.S Lee), who this week discovered his hot new intern had placed an exhibit from the “Ice Truck Killer” investigation on eBay.  You also couldn’t help but laugh out loud at Quinn (Desmond Harrington) and Batista (David Zayas) being high on weed “stop staring at me dude, it’s freaking me out”.  The look on his face was very amusing.  We also had a good laugh from Debra (Jennifer Carpenter) this week when she was responsible for doing her first press interview, she decided to be "herself", as advised and swore on national TV, horrified LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) is now really pissed as Debra's little trick worked and she has become and instant hit with the public.

One person did get killed this week but not at the hands of Dexter, he was having the week off but I'm sure it may well be business as usual next week running along side his trying to find out who Travis is, he saw him right at the end of this episode remember, oh yeah and Gellar was nowhere to be seen.

For me his weeks episode has been one of the best yet as far as backing stories go, the characters of Mike Anderson, Mos Def and Travis can only get better and better and this season is really going places.
