Articles for Dexter Season 4

Tonight‘s the night! It‘s the start of the new season of Dexter and consequently, we get a whole new Dexter Morgan, at least on the surface. He‘s still America‘s favorite serial killer only now he‘s more relatable than ever because he embodies what it means to be a husband and a father, and a pretty tired one for that matter. "Living the Dream," the title of the fourth season opener of Dexter, is a clever play on words because we all know that Dexter Morgan has everything he could possibly want. A house? Check! A wife? Check! Kids? Check! Work as a blood spatter analyst for Miami Metro Homicide? Check! Unfortunately, life in suburbia is still unfamiliar territory for Dexter and the only thing he really needs right now is time for himself...and time to kill. Read more »
Finally, we get some sort of answer to the question posed by several previews and trailers about Dexter‘s fourth season in which Dexter Morgan is now living life in suburbia as a husband and a father. Is he really living the dream? It certainly doesn‘t look like it, at least based on the season opener, which wastes no time giving viewers a glimpse of the rigors of parenthood while introducing the highly anticipated Trinity Killer.Read no further if you have not seen "Living the Dream." Read more »
Obviously, death is no stranger to a show like Dexter considering that our lead character is a serial killer who moonlights as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Metro Police Department. But every now and then, we‘re confronted with the reality that someone else will die on the show, besides rapists, murderers and criminals.  And season 4 is no different.If you recall, we‘ve already witnessed the demise of Brian Moser, Dexter‘s biological older brother in season 1, Lila West, Dexter‘s sociopath Narcotics Anonymous sponsor, Sgt. James Doakes in season 2 and senior Assistant District Attorney Miguel Prado in season 3. These deaths, however, are crucial and inevitable for our Dark Passenger to continue his journey.  Read more »
The pressures of fatherhood continue to take a toll on Dexter Morgan as we head to then second episode of Dexter‘s fourth season. This time, however, our favorite serial killer has a bigger challenge to conquer when the remains of his latest victim go missing after crashing his car in last week‘s premiere. Though he‘s bound to weave a web of lies to extract himself from this dilemma, it‘s hard to imagine how Dexter will pull this one off. One thing‘s for sure, he needs to work fast before his dark secret gets exposed to the world.  Read more »
Harry Morgan must have seen it all coming when he said, "You‘ve got a family to support, and people to dismember. You‘re spinning too many plates, Dexter." And we get exactly what he means as the Dexter episode "Remains to Be Seen" picks up right where last week‘s premiere left off: Strapped and trapped in his car, Dexter Morgan wakes up as he is wheeled into an ambulance, fearing that cops will discover the body of his latest victim, Benny Gomez. Aren‘t we all? Read more »
Dexter has a few more twists in store for this season and one of the surprises involves Nip/Tuck actress Roma Maffia, who is best known for her role as Liz Cruz. Maffia has signed on to join the cast of the Showtime series in what might turn out to be a recurring capacity. Details about Maffia‘s role are being kept under wraps but has managed to score a few clues as to how she‘ll stir the plot.Warning: This article contains spoilers!!! Read more »
After crashing his car, getting some edge over Quinn, and losing and eventually finding the remains of his latest victim in last week‘s episode, Dexter Morgan thinks that the worse is over. But we all know that‘s not the case for our favorite serial killer, who always finds himself facing yet another difficult challenge. This week, Dexter tries to keep up his act in his bustling suburban community but this proves to be a difficult task even for someone who is a master at the art of faking. Read more »
Life in suburbia doesn‘t get any easier for Dexter Morgan in Dexter‘s third episode entitled "Blinded by the Light" as he forces himself to blend in with the neighbors and be a father to Astor who‘s gotten even brattier than usual.  It‘s the perfect camouflage though for a serial killer who‘s just waiting to set his sights on the next murderer that gets in his way. Unfortunately, suburban life is ruining his style and it doesn‘t help that all his neighbors are now vigilantly watching out for the person responsible for all the vandals.  Read more »
No offense to Julie Benz, but I never really liked her character Rita on Dexter. She was tolerable during the first season but somehow she has turned into one of the most annoying personalities on the Showtime series. I‘m sure Rita means well but I can‘t help but feel sorry for poor Dexter who‘s obviously suffocating whenever she nags and indulges in a little power trip. On the other hand, the writers must have a pretty good reason for building up her character this way and I wouldn‘t be surprised if Little Miss Homemaker turns out to be someone with a dark secret.   Read more »

With Rita and the kids out on a trip, it‘s time for Dexter to make the most out of his time alone in "Dex Takes a Vacation. After witnessing Dexter reached his boiling point and hitting the neighborhood security lights in last week‘s episode, Rita encourages Dexter to enjoy 72 precious hours and recharge his batteries only she doesn‘t have any idea that he‘s recharging with another woman.If you missed last week‘s episode, check out the recap here. Read more »
Since the beginning of the fourth season of Dexter, Dexter Morgan has kept himself busy, minding his own business and satisfying his Dark Passenger urges. But recent events spur Dexter into his own investigation of the Trinity killer. And this time, it‘s personal.Just after admitting to himself last week that he has real feelings for his family and would rather risk them finding out the truth about him than lose them, Dexter nearly loses a loved one in the episode "Dirty Harry." Find out Deb and Lundy‘s fate tonight at 9pm on Showtime. Read more »
Aside from revealing the fate of Lundy and Deb, "Dirty Harry," the fifth episode of Dexter, offers a pretty heavy twist that serves as an eye opener to Dexter Morgan and to viewers as well. But before we discover the highlight of the night, Dexter gradually breezes through some marital and trust issues courtesy of Rita, a mind-numbing office romance no thanks to Angel and LaGuerta and a hefty number of diversions.    Read more »
Now that Dexter Morgan has found something in common with the Trinity Killer, his curiosity to uncover Trinity‘s well-kept mask is greater than ever. However, getting behind that facade will require some extra prodding on Dexter‘s part and we see it all happening in "If I Had A Hammer," the sixth episode of Dexter‘s fourth season. If you missed last week‘s episode, you can read the recap here. Read more »
The moment we‘ve all been waiting for finally happened in "If I Had a Hammer," the sixth episode of Dexter‘s fourth season: Dexter Morgan finally got up close to Trinity while we learned more about Arthur Mitchell‘s personal life. Last week, it was revealed that Trinity is a husband and father, proving that he and Dexter aren‘t so different at all. This week, however, we learned that Trinity is so much more than Dexter thought he would be because as it turns out, he‘s also a teacher, humanitarian, and deacon of his church. Read more »
If there‘s one thing we‘ve learned from last week‘s episode of Dexter it‘s that Dexter Morgan can‘t kill Trinity just yet. Dexter knows he has a lot to learn from Arthur Mitchell, who has been juggling suburban family life with serial killing and is doing a pretty good job at it for nearly three decades, so he continues playing Kyle Butler, the divorced family man who has found refuge under Arthur‘s fellowship. While this little setback may cost others their lives, it gives Dexter a fresh perspective on the rules that have kept Arthur a free man and thus, turning Trinity into some sort of mentor. Read more »
Ever since Dexter Morgan found out about Trinity‘s life as Arthur Mitchell, we‘ve been treated with somewhat leisurely sub-plots as a substitute for Trinity‘s deferred- death-at-the-hands-of-Dexter. And it seems that Showtime‘s Dexter is just taking its sweet time trying to give viewers a chance to get to know Trinity a little bit more while Dexter picks up a thing or two from his newfound mentor. "Slack Tide" the seventh episode of Dexter‘s fourth season, is just about that. By the end of the episode, however, our favorite serial killer is left with even more hurdles than he can seemingly handle. Read more »

After killing an innocent man, Dexter Morgan wonders if the Code of Harry has been designed to protect him not just from exposure but something far more dangerous--- human emotion. It seems that Dexter is becoming more and more susceptible to risks and it‘s no wonder he‘s seeking refuge in a fellow monster.   Read more »
Serial killers aren‘t supposed to care whether their victims are innocent or not but Dexter Morgan‘s recent mistake has turned him into one uneasy and uncomfortable monster. But it‘s not just because he defied the Code of Harry. Guilt is gradually eating him up now that he‘s killed an innocent man, making him more susceptible to risks and human emotion. On the other hand, Dexter isn‘t the type who laments and dwells on his blunders. In fact, he determined to quickly get past this unpleasant phase of his life and tries to move on by killing Trinity, the man who should have been on his killing table.  Read more »
The characters on Dexter have never been much for family holidays or Thanksgiving for that matter. But we learn what the timely occasion signifies in "Hungry Man," the ninth episode of Dexter‘s fourth season. For Dexter Morgan, Thanksgiving is an opportunity to get closer to Trinity--- his most dangerous adversary yet. For LaGuerta and Angel, on the other hand, the holiday is all about spending time together at work "unfortunately." Read more »
What kind of father keeps a coffin in his garage? He‘s the kind of father who also beats up his son, locks up his daughter and basically puts a leash on his entire family. And that‘s exactly the kind of person Trinity is. In "Hungry Man," the ninth episode of Dexter‘s fourth season, we learn that underneath Trinity‘s picture perfect family is an unbearable nightmare waiting to explode. This gives Dexter Morgan more than enough reason to kill Trinity because not only will he be avenging Lundy and his sister Deb, in the long run he‘s also saving Trinity‘s family from the monster that is Arthur Mitchell.  Read more »
James Remar, who is perhaps best known as Richard, the on-off tycoon boyfriend of Kim Cattrall‘s character in Sex and the City, as well as serial killer Dexter Morgan‘s father Harry on Showtime‘s Dexter, has joined the cast of The Vampire Diaries to spice up the drama in the key role of Giuseppe Salvatore, Stefan and Damon‘s father.Remar is expected to start filming his scenes early next month.  Read more »
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Just as Dexter Morgan finally believes he understands the monster that is Trinity, he is forced to question everything he‘s learned up to this point when a 10-year-old boy goes missing in "Lost Boys," the 10th episode of Dexter‘s fourth season. We‘ve learned a lot of creepy stuff about Trinity so far, including his disturbing killing pattern, but that‘s all about to change tonight as we learn that Trinity‘s kill pattern actually contains four victims. Hopefully, that should top last Sunday‘s reveal that Christine is Trinity‘s daughter.  Read more »
Ever since Dexter kicked off its fourth season, Lundy, Deb, Dexter, as well as the viewers, have been led to believe that Trinity follows a certain murder pattern of three: A young woman in a bathtub bleeding to death, followed by a mother of two falling to death, and a man bludgeoned to death. But it looks like Lundy overlooked some details about Trinity‘s case as Dexter makes a startling revelation about Trinity‘s real killing cycle.I‘ve decided to refer to Trinity as "Arthur Mitchell" since that‘s his real name and "Trinity" doesn‘t seem appropriate anymore considering our most recent discovery. It turns out Arthur has been killing in groups of four and the cycle always starts with the abduction of a 10-year-old boy who represents young Arthur.  Read more »
BuddyTV would like to introduce Fan Contributor, Alison Stern-Dunyak, a big Dexter fan. Read her first recap of Lost Boys below. If you‘re interested in writing about your favorite TV show, click here for details.Following the shocking discovery at the end of last week‘s Dexter--Christine is Arthur‘s daughter!--this week‘s "Lost Boys" featured quieter, but just as satisfying, plot and character reveals. Among other things, we may have seen the true birth of Dexter Morgan, family man.After seeing Dexter and Rita with baby Harrison at the doctor‘s office getting booster shots, we learn that Dex has moved his trophies and gear out of the family shed to an old shipping container, like the one where he witnessed his mother‘s murder. He decides it‘s time to take care of Arthur once and for all and follows Arthur‘s van to a parking garage. Arthur trails a nanny with two children into an arcade, and Dexter follows close behind. Dexter is concerned that Arthur wants to kidnap another young woman to start the cycle of three killings again. But it turns out Arthur wants the young boy. By posing as "Officer Carney," Arthur persuades the little boy, Scott, to come with him. Dexter follows him, calling out to stop, but Arthur drives away with the boy in his van. Read more »
Welcome Liz, a big fan of Dexter and BuddyTV Fan Contributor. If you‘re interested in becoming a Fan Contributor click here. In episode ten of Dexter, "Lost Boys," we begin to see a new side of Trinity. Raked with guilt for not killing Trinity when he had the chance, Dexter tails Trinity to an arcade. Dexter is not the only one on the hunt, as Trinity seems to be eyeing a young babysitter with two children, Scott and Abby. Dexter believes Trinity is starting the cycle all over again, and while he is looking for the babysitter, Trinity has his sights on Scott, a ten-year-old boy. Posing as a police officer, Trinity tells Scott his parents are in a car accident. Scott, strangely apt for a ten-year-old, is a bit skeptical, but Trinity insists that everything is fine, citing Scott‘s family member‘s names that he saw on a bumper sticker on the boy‘s car.As Trinity leads a still skeptical Scott to his car, Dexter sees him, makes his presence known and attempts to chase down the car. Trinity is too fast and tears out of the parking garage and Dexter loses him. Trinity realizes what Dexter, or "Kyle" as Trinity calls him, is up to and makes a phonecall asking Dexter to leave him alone, stating that whatever Dexter/Kyle saw, he will "preserve the boy‘s innocence."  Read more »

If you‘re interested in writing about your favorite TV show, click here for details.Main characters on TV shows used to be reliably good guys, from Detective Joe Friday on Dragnet onward. But the last decade has seen the anti-hero take center stage.

Welcome Liz, a big fan of Dexter and BuddyTV Fan Contributor. If you‘re interested in becoming a Fan Contributor click here. Christine Hill, Det. Joey Quinn‘s girlfriend, a reporter and most recently revealed: Arthur Mitchell‘s (Trinity‘s) daughter, seems to be in over her head these days. In "Lost Boys," Hill reveals to her father that she saw him kill a woman in a bathtub when she was five. Due to her dutiful reporting skills, she discovered that there has been a bathtub murder in every state from where Mitchell has sent her a postcard for the past thirty years. Due to her not-so-dutiful reporting skills, she has yet to connect the dots between the bludgeonings and women falling to her death, but we‘ll cut her some slack for the time being.Seeing as how she wants to prove to her father that she is the child that loves Daddy the most, she takes it upon herself to kill FBI Agent Frank Lundy, because well, he was getting in the way. Mitchell seems to be pleased and willing to protect Hill, who is now paranoid of the police eventually catching on (incidentally, they have). But, as soon as Hill tears out of the parking lot, confident that her father will protect her, Mitchell gets into the car and has a fit of rage, punching his steering wheel--yet again the Trinity killer reveals himself for just how unstable he really is. Read more »
What kind of person witnesses child abduction but doesn‘t call the police? Arthur Mitchell can‘t seem to grasp why Dexter Morgan didn‘t simply turn him in after the botched kidnap killing last week but we all know that Arthur‘s arrest would only deprive Dexter of a satisfying kill. Unfortunately for Dexter, this quandary leads Arthur to start his own investigation into his alter ego, Kyle Butler, in tonight‘s episode called "Hello, Dexter Morgan." Read more »
This is it, Dexter fans. It‘s the moment we‘ve all been waiting for.

Now that the cat and mouse chase is shaping up nicely on Dexter, it‘s safe to assume that next week‘s finale will leave us at the edge of our seats.  Will Deb finally learn the truth about Dexter‘s mom? What will happen to Arthur and Dexter? Your guess is as good as mine. However, Jennifer Carpenter, also known as Deb Morgan on the Showtime series, hints that the fourth season of Dexter is nothing like what you‘ve imagined so far. Read more »
Nowadays, it‘s rare to find a show that makes villains, particularly serial killers, look good in the public eye. But Showtime‘s Dexter manages to do just that, effectively turning blood spatter analyst Dexter Morgan into America‘s favorite serial killer by giving his gruesome passion for thrill killing a constructive direction: killing people who deserve it. Unfortunately for some fans, they are so engrossed on Dexter that they can‘t distinguish the thick line between TV fiction and reality.  Read more »

AlisonStern-Dunyak, BuddyTV Fan Columnist, talks about family. This time, mothers . If you‘re interested in writing aboutyour favorite TV show, click here for details.A lot has been said about how daddy issues dominated Dexter this year. But let‘s talk about the flipside--the (lack of) mommy issues. Is Dexter, nominally a black comedy/thriller about a serial killer, secretly about the virtues of the traditional family? Think about it--for want of a few loving mothers, many of the show‘s characters suffer or make others suffer.Father-child issues aren‘t new to the Morgan family. Heck, Dexter‘s dad is dead, but still wants to be his dad. Fortunately for Ghost Harry, Dex usually welcomes his father‘s advice. Sister Deborah Morgan tried so hard to please Harry that she joined the police force, a job that‘s nearly gotten her killed several times. She fell in love with a man (Frank Lundy) old enough to be her father (not very subtle). Dex‘s long-lost brother Bryan--AKA the Ice Truck Killer--never forgave Harry for saving Dexter but not him. Bryan almost killed both Deb and Dex over his "issues." Read more »

If you‘re interested in writing aboutyour favorite TV show, click here for details.Rather than "The Getaway," a better name for this week‘s episode of Dexter might be: The Game Changer. After this, everything is different. Mind-blowingly, heart-breakingly different. Warning! Spoilers if you haven‘t watched the finale yet.We picked up where we left off, with "Trinity Killer," Arthur Mitchell, confronting Dexter at the station. Surprisingly, rather than cause a commotion, Arthur simply tells Dexter to disappear from his life--"like a ghost." Dexter ignores Arthur‘s request and follows him, driving like a madman and knocking off the mirror of another car. He catches Arthur in a bank parking garage and sedates him. Dexter finds wads of cash in an envelope Arthur carried and assumes he intended to use it to flee the country.  Read more »

A lot of loopholes and questions were left unanswered when Dexter concluded its fourth season, and as we head into the fifth season, it‘s obvious that the new direction of the show will only get darker and complicated now that Dexter Morgan is forced to deal with a tragic loss and a haunting image that will change his life forever--- all courtesy of Trinity.
