Season 1 is a dramatic bullet-train of non-stop heart-pounding thrills – in which Dexter is toyed with by a fabulously talented serial killer who seems to know him intimately and whose skill seems to exceed his own. Dexter works as a blood-splatter analyst for Miami Metro Homicide and helps his step-sister cop Debra hunt the Ice Truck Killer who leaves beautifully exsanguinated corpses. Family ties become strained and the question posed is what sort of family ties a serial killer can have as Dexter struggles to maintain a relationship with his girlfriend Rita and her two kids.
By season 2 Dexter’s relationship with Rita is thrown into turmoil with the reappearance of her drug-addict husband and a passionate romance with Lila, an artist, tormented with her own demons, who is determined to have Dexter as her soul-mate, but who keeps threatening Rita and the kids. Season 3 finds Dexter exploring the prospects for friendship with a rogue prosecutor with his own sense of justice. Dexter teaches him how to kill but the friendship sours as Ramon Prado pursues private vendettas with his new-found skills and, like Lila, must eventually fall under Dexter’s knife. Except for Rita and her kids, an intimate relationship with Dexter is a bit like conjugation with a black-widow spider.
Part of the series’ charm is the way we find ourselves rooting for a serial killer trying to act the way he should when he can’t feel it. All those moments of emotional isolation, of feeling different but trying to fit in, of acting how we think we should in order to belong – make Dexter a sympathetic figure. The show is also packed with wry irony and double entendres that put us in Dexter’s shoes, and mordant wit as when Dexter is ready to kill a psychologist who pushes his patients to suicide – but puts it off for a few days because he needs another session with him to address some intimacy issues he has with Rita. Finally, the only people with whom Dexter can let his hair down and be himself are his victims, strapped to the abattoir table; not only do they have so much in common but they are hardly in a position to hold what he says against him.
One of the best critical reviews of The Final Season describes how the writers gave up in the final season and the show went to pot; I suspected that the decline would come earlier because it takes a lot of suspension of disbelief to watch a full-time serial killer, boyfriend and father surrogate, homicide forensics expert, sympathetic brother find time to juggle it all – and indeed by Season 4 things break down quite badly. Dexter is on the trail of Trinity, the USA’s most successful uncaught serial killer with a 30+ year record. Trinity hides in plain sight as a model citizen, father, deacon and home-builder. He takes troops of workers around the country to build homes for the needy and kills at these distant locations. Dexter undertakes to enter Trinity’s life as one of his helpers and becomes an intimate of Trinity’s family and church. When Dex decides that it’s time for Trinity to go, Dex offers a confidence that triggers a profound guilt in the senior serial-killer. Dex stalks Trinity to his job site, takes out his anesthetizing needle and sneaks up from behind but sees Trinity about to leap to his death by impaling himself on the rebar below. As the very large Trinity jumps, Dex grabs his wrist and unlike real life where they both go over or you can’t hold on, Trinity hangs there while Dex has the insight that it is okay for Trinity to die so long “as it’s by my hand.” So just as Dex is about to release Trinity’s wrist, 4-5 co-workers come up and grab the boss and pull him to safety. Whoops! Whatever happened to the meticulous take-no-risks Dexter who never comes close to being caught? Dexter doesn’t have even a moment’s reflection about what he was doing planning to snatch Trinity from the middle of a fully occupied work site.
It gets better, or worse. Dex becomes a softy and wants to start saving people instead of just killing the bad guys. One of Trinity’s victims is a 10-year old boy drugged and put into a duffle bag who will be dumped at night into a cement fill at the job-site. (Don’t ask how Trinity gets a large pit full of wet cement in the middle of the night at the build site.) Rather like rescuing the damsel tied to the tracks, Dex arrives in the nick of time, but Trinity dumps the bag into the cement and then the two commence to struggle over the shovel in Trinity’s hands. Dex wins, whacks Trinity in the head and he goes down. Now, certainly this is a moment with not a lot of time to spare, but certainly a few seconds for a couple more good whacks to make sure Trinity is done for; or a slit with the shovel edge against a jugular so the bag can be pulled out without Trinity’s interference. But Dex gives one whack, then turns toward the sinking bag and here is the kicker: the serial-killer manual 101 says than when engaged in hand-to-hand life-and-death struggle with another experienced serial-killer you don’t let him out of your sight unless he’s dead or permanently disabled. But Dex simply turns his back on Trinity and …
Well, folks, the writers started to shut down and call it quits in Season 4. Between Goodwill, Amazon and E-bay I managed to buy Seasons 1-5 for under $24.00 (shipping included) but it’s 50-50 whether Season 5 will ever get watched. By the way, Showtime must have produced the DVDs on a shoestring. The only one with subtitles was my sole Blu-ray purchase, Season 3; and both Season 3 and Season 4 begin with mandatory inescapable Showtime advertisements.
Anyone reading reviews of any season of Dexter knows how fanatic Dexter's fans are. The episode in Season Four which ends with a car crash was just about the cruelest cut of all for those fans! Who in their sane mind (among Dexter fans) could live an entire week not knowing what happens next? So, of course, I hit the play button. Had to know!!
And good ol' Frank Lundy, the FBI-serial-killer hunter returns to this season and adds such a rich dimension to the story. The episode which ends with Lundy and Deb (Dexter's sister) forces another must-know, must-watch next episode. From that point on, NOT watching the series was no longer an option. So we had a Dexter marathon at my house in those two days. I even dreamed about Dexter (the series, not the man--although, let it be said, Michael C. Hall is an attractive man).
A prominent feature of this fourth season is Dexter's devoted wife. However, with the advent of a crying baby, she develops into a control freak--or perhaps this trait of control has always been present, providing proof positive that Dexter loves this woman and his family, that he is, indeed, connected despite his Dark Passenger, Perhaps with time he can boot DP, but, of course, the season finale precludes any such event. In fact, the finale perhaps foreshadows a partner in some future day. After all, many serial killers are successful for years and years.
Thus enters Arthur (John Lithgow), hiding behind the schoolteacher/deacon facade. Other reviewers strongly praise Lithgow's performance. I will, as well, but won't single him out. He joins a cast of equally powerful actors portraying equally evil killers. He does skilfully portray the chameleon facade of the psychopathic killer, even showing us the origin and root cause of his behavior. Unlike Dexter, Arthur does not have a benevolent father instructing him in ways of discovery avoidance. In fact, his drunken, destructive, abusive father pounds Arthur literally and figuratively into the makings of a serial killer.
The season finale is catastrophic and so unexpected, showing that history CAN repeat itself. I'm thinking maybe I will add Showtime to my television programming. I'm not sure I want to wait another year just to get the entire season in one package. Maybe the serial wait is not so bad.
