‘Do the Wrong Thing,’ the sixth episode of season 7 of Dexter ended with a bang....literally...instead of killing Hannah on the table, Dexter jumped on top of her and "did the wrong thing."Dexter photo: blog.zap2it.com
 
Also, Deb went on a date with a crime author after Dexter told her to get a life.
 
The only other noteworthy recaps are Quinn taking bribe money from the mob to hopefully ensure Nadia, his stripper girlfriend's safety...

What happens next? Will Dexter and Hannah together like he did with Lumen? Will Hannah help LaGuerta or anyone else to out him?

Time will tell...

‘Swim Deep,’ the fifth episode of season 7 of Dexter, is one of the fastest episodes of the season, and the hardest to watch if you’re in favor of Dexter.
 
Lt. LaGuerta is starting to close in on her search for truth about the Bay Harbor Butcher. She's getting so warm that Deb offers to help and finds herself saving Dexter when she and LaGuerta visit the son of one of Dexter's victims and Deb hides a photo with Dexter in it!
 
Dexter visits his boat and realizes someone's been killed there! After analysis, he realizes it was Louis and figures out that the Ukranian mob is now after him. He and Isaak play a dance of who can outsmart who. Dex comes home and realizes Isaak's in his place so he leaves a fake voicemail sending Isaak to a restaurant and then calls Isaak in this safe spot for a game on! Dexter realizes Isaak is after revenge and he ends up keeping Deb safe in a hotel.
 
While at a dig site looking for more of Wayne's victims, Dex realizes Hannah isn't as innocent as she is playing. He stays quiet. Why? Will there be a romance here?

As Dexter leaves the dig site, he notices Isaak following him. Acting quickly, Dexter leads Isaak into a bar full of Ukranian enemies! Later, Miami Metro is called to the bar but Isaak's body is not one of the victims. Isaak ends up in jail for murder and Dexter pays him a visit to find out this isn't over.

In Dexter’s fourth episode of season 7 titled “Run,” Deb is consumed with Dexter's dark passenger. She keeps thinking about Rita and starts demanding answers. Then, as if they shouldn't have the rift about it two episodes ago, the writers have Deb insist Harrison head to Orlando to be with his grandparents. Dexter agrees only to a short term visit after he's seen by Speltzer in Speltzer’s RV (the one suspenseful moment of the episode.)
 
At Miami Metro, the team is called to an alleged suicide scene because the victim is the bartender at the strip club they've been investigating since Detective Anderson's homicide. Quinn feels relieved to 'close' the case, continues dating the stripper he met at the club and keep his own dark passenger at bay- (Did you catch the line I'm the club where Quinn was offered a shot and some blow to chill out!?). Quinn didn't like it, and it looks like there might be some foreshadowing into what happens with him this season.
 
The episode ended with Dexter getting his kill (Speltzer), but instead of the usual scene and butcher block, he killed him right in the crematorium at the cemetery. In a strange twist, he called Deb to pick him up. As they sat in her car, he pointed to the smoke and told her it was Speltzer. Odd and awkward as ever, she asked Dexter if he did it for her. And of course, he said no!

Dexter's third episode “Buck the System" is a set up show with less excitement but plenty of foreshadowing.

Dexter has had enough of living under Deb's nose and being policed by her. He warns her he needs some space, loses his cool on a suspect when he goes in to get DNA and finally tries showing her his code. He starts observing his next kill and brings her to the bar where he's "observing" to show her how the system failed.

In true Deb fashion, she freaks out and then later decides the police can look at this guy again and keep tabs on him. Dexter's not satisfied and continues doing his side due diligence. Eventually Deb decides to conduct some surveillance herself and ends up finding herself in a bad spot when she sees how right Dexter was and has a brush with death in the process.

Later she decides maybe Dexter has a point about the code.

Meanwhile, at Miami Metro PD, Louis gets fired when Masuka gets the ice truck hand delivered. Then life gets even worse for Louis when he gets home and Jamie dumps him after someone mails her the DVD of him with a hooker. But it doesn't stop there- Louis decides to get even and ends up getting killed on Dexter's boat by the mob that was involved in Anderdon's shooting in episode1. This can't be good for Dexter, since the blood splattered and the mob believes he killed their missing man.

In the second episode of the season, Dexter has taken a turn that will never let us see him the same again. His sister is keeping him under 24-7 watch to help "rehabilitate" him and make sure he doesn't kill again...was anyone else wondering why Harrison didn't stay at Deb's, too?
 
Meanwhile at Miami Metro, LaGuerta inched closer to outing Dexter by asking the FBI to send over the Bay Harbor Butcher evidence, while separately sending the glass blood side out for a confidential screen.
 
Quinn and Angel continued investigating their fellow officer's homicide at the strip club. When Quinn tried getting one of the girls to break, he may have gotten more than he asked for...she called him for a ride home because her car broke down. He accepted the opportunity, thinking she'd offer some details into the investigation, but she had nothing to share. It's clear this won't end well for one or both of them.
 
BUT the biggest plot to thicken was the relationship between Dexter and Louis- that pain of an intern Masuka has!  What does Louis know or want? Dexter realized Louis has been messing with him and confronted him in his apartment. Louis acted scared, and despite Dexter's demands that Louis stay away from Jamie and Harrison, Dexter came home to find Louis in the apartment, on Dexter's side, no fear.

That made Dex's blood boil and he was ready to kill him, but Louis hasn't met the code, and Deb has been watching him close. So, he drugged her and Louis to sleep, and left him on a park bench passed out.

WOW!

Season 6 of ‘Dexter’ ended with a bang and the writers kept on keeping on the hamster wheel to start season 7 off right. Unlike the disappointment many fans felt when season 5 started (after Rita) this episode had non-stop drama, foreshadowing and excitement!

The episode started with Dexter en route to the airport with his getaway bag. Fans were tricked into believing he was headed out of the country to escape Deb and whatever aftermath could be coming. Instead, it turned out that he was at the airport for a kill, which fans saw later in the episode.

Deb helped him stage a fire at the scene where detectives start assuming that Travis may have killed himself. Until LaGuerta takes a blood slide (one of Dexter’s collection) from the scene, and Detective Anderson calls Deb to ask where Travis’ car might be. Deb starts to ponder this and it looks bad for Dexter, but all works in his favor- as Anderson stops on the highway to help someone with a flat and gets killed when he finds a body in the person’s trunk. Turns out, it is someone from the Ukranian mob, and that is who Dexter ends up killing for a fix later in the show. Obviously, having the Ukranina mob after him will add to the suspense the rest of the season.

Meanwhile, Deb continues to question things as she thinks about what just happened. The way Travis body was wrapped in plastic is eerily familiar to what happened to her with the ice truck killer. She starts wondering where Dexter goes and even calls Jamie (the babysitter) to check in and find out he isn’t home.

When Dexter is home, Jamie’s boyfriend Louis’ (the odd and entertaining intern) is on Dexter’s side of the apartment and Dexter lets him know that’s not acceptable! Later, LaGuerta asks Masuka about how/why the lab collects these blood slides. When Masuka tells her the late Doakes was the only one to do so, she pockets the evidence. Uh oh, Dexter… this doesn’t look good for you!

The episode ends with Deb inside Dexter’s apartment, having torn the place apart and finding his knives, blood slides and more. She asks him if he’s a serial killer, and he says yes.

Is it real? Is it a dream? What do you think? We’ll find out soon!

It’s just about time for Dexter’s Season 7 premiere. For those of you who don’t know,  it’s tonight: Sunday, September 30, 2012!

If you haven’t seen the previous seasons and plan to do so, stop reading now. Otherwise, here is a little recap…

Season 6 ended with a jaw-dropping, cliff hanging bang, but we’ll get to that in a bit. It started with Maria LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) getting a nice promotion to captain, thanks to her blackmailing of Deputy Matthews (Geoff Pierson)….she had proof he was with a prostitute in town. The drama for Miami Metro didn’t stop there, as Masuka (C.S. Lee) took on an intern and had to later fire her (Brea Grant) for stealing evidence …aka the ice truck killer hand… and selling it on an auction site. When Masuka brings on a new intern, Louis (Josh Cooke), he thinks Louis fixed the problem but that remains to be sured up.

Batista (David Zayas) is now divorced from lieutenant (aka Captain LaGuerta) and gets overlooked in the department when Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) is promoted to lieutenant! Batista and Quinn (Desmond Harrington) end up partners in the field, and after Deb turns down Quinn’s marriage proposal, he turns to alcohol as a vice. Batista tires of looking out for Quinn and gets put in awkward situations because of Quinn’s behavior all too often this season.

As if the internal drama for Miami Metro PD wasn’t enough, season 6 revolves around the Doomsday Killers: James Gellar (Edward James Olmos) and Travis Marshall (Colin Hanks) using religion (specifically The Book of Revelation) to bring forth the end of the world through the Apocalypse. Through elaborate murder scenes based on the book, they re-enact or depict the Four Horseman and more! While visually stunning, season 6, much like season 5, failed to live up to the first four seasons of the show.  In the end, Gellar was a ghost and his student, Marshall was the one doing all the killing because of his disturbed nature. Of course, Dexter (Michael C. Hall) was able to figure this all out, despite having plenty of his own drama- including a reference to Trinity when his wife and daughter showed up dead in Nebraska, a vision of the ice truck killer and more.

The season ended with the second best cliffhanger in series history, second only to the end of the Trinity season. After much therapy, Deb realized she may love her brother. When she rushed to tell him, she walked in to find him killing Travis!  End!

Where will this season pick up? How will the writers take this in season 7? It’s hard to say. They did a poor job (in my opinion) doing the first episodes after Rita, they had so many options. Will Deb keep the secret, will she think it was in self defense? Could she join him in the killings moving forward?

What do you hope happens?
