Hey Gasmi. We’re back for episode three this season. Sorry for the delay, I’ve been sick this week. But hey, Rule #76: No excuses. Play like a champion. Let’s do this.
We’ve been waiting for some action and fittingly we kick off with Dexter waiting in line at the post office. He’s still under the ever watchful eye of Deb, as we see her waiting outside the building. Basically, this is turning into an episode of Big Brother so soon we may be watching Dexter asleep for half an episode. The cage like atmosphere is causing Dexter to lose control in his mind and is becoming more and more agitated by the little things. For one, when one of the desk clerks closes her window, he visualizes slicing her throat open. As one would.
I go sleep now.
Deb is trying to hurry Dexter along at the post office so I guess she’s never been in one before. Before we leave, we see Dexter is there to mail a package to Miami Metro and he inner monologues that it involves Louie.
Speaking of our smug little buddy, he and Dexter exchange looks on the way to the briefing. If only he knew what was coming to him.
Is it a hooker?
At the briefing, they’re still trying to find Viktor Baskov. Angel informs Deb, that ”We’re still chasing our tail”. OK Angel, we know you like going to the strip clubs. Deb tells him that someone must be helping him hide out, so find them. Maybe they should enlist a Hufflepuff; they are particularly good finders.
What the hell is a Hufflepuff?
This of course is their other, slightly better option.
Masuka is noticing that Deb is staring down Dexter during the entire meeting. He won’t shut up about it to Dexter and he goes back to his happy place and imagines stabbing Masuka in the throat. First, the black lady at the post office, now Masuka. Bautista better watch out, I think Dexter is trying to collect all the racial wedges in this trivial pursuit.
We’re gonna need the blood splatter on that, Dexter.
Miami Metro has also picked up an I-95 shooter. Dexter has to get a DNA sample from him in holding. We find the winner of the Poor Man’s Charlie Manson Look-alike Contest awaiting Dexter. He’s not being compliant with the DNA swab so Dexter threatens to get some cops to pry his mouth open. Feeling brave he calls Dexter a pussy which just makes Dexter go all Latrell Sprewell and choke him out. Deb runs in to stop it and tells him to meet her outside.
In a back alley, Dexter reveals his frustrations. He wants to break free. You see Deb is so self satisfied and he doesn’t need her. He’s got to break free. Otherwise, something bad could happen. Deb tries and throws out Harrison to guilt Dexter into continuing to fight his urges. Nice try, Deb. That kid sees his real father less than Jesus. Deb agrees to give him space and back off if he doesn’t relapse.
