It was interesting to see Dex dump The Code for Hannah's father. I gotta say, the Hannah character has been a really pleasant surprise. She is by far the best of the characters that have been sent to open Dexter up. It's a pretty long list. The French chick in season 2. Jimmy Smits. The wife. Lumen. It's been a long list of flops really. Hannah has let him really open up. And throw in the exposure to Deb, and you're getting a lot more from Dex than we have in the past.
He dumped the "Dark Passenger" not the code. At least that's what I got from the episode. Hannah's father didn't meet the code but he put Hannah in danger w/ blackmail / what he knew about her.
Dexter was ready to kill Sal Price too (or put him in jail for life) because of Hannah. He definitely didn't meet the code.
I agree that this season has been top notch. Was looking through the episode list and the finale is named, "Surprise Mothe****er" -- is Doax making a cameo?
Yeah, not so much that he dumped the code, just that he was willing to deviate from it for her father, and like Bano said, maybe it indicates his sort of letting go of the structure he's hung onto so long, and sort embracing his becoming truely out of control.
When he dumped the Dark Passenger thing, I thought it was telling that she sort of points out that he's still in there. She's sort of convincing him to embrace himself. And they just subtly imply that she may be manipulating him, although it's not entirely clear, which is a nod to her performance, and it's much dissimilar to the on the nose stuff we usually get from the show.
Does Dex's deviation from the code allow him to truely hunt LaGuerta once he discovers her theory? Is he willing to kill the other guy to? They're the only ones who really know about it at the moment? Would that alienate him from Deb who's just barely able to justify him as it is? Would he be willing to kill Deb? Would Hannah try to kill Deb to protect him the way he did with her father? All of this could make next season compelling.
I think it's the opposite, Dexter used to think he was just a monster now he's realizing he's human. He's realizing he can control his urges and he also realizes he is in love with Hannah
It can go either way. That's what makes it such an interesting scenario.
I feel like when he dumped the code and killed Hannah's father he kind of started to get a kind of like...**** it attitude.
I felt the show took a tone last night that was more like Dexter realizing...
'I dont kill because I have to and to kill murderers...its all bull shit. I kill because I like to and I will kill anyone that gets in my way.'
Which I think that state of mind has some influence from Hannah in it.
My guess as to where they go...Dexter starts to get loose with the code and losing some of his focus and as the LaGuerta theory heats up his recklessness winds up coming back to hurt him. He realizes he needs to regain focus and does some boss shit to get out from under the microscope. (Killing LaGuerta maybe?)
One thing I never understood about Dexter is I remember him saying in a past episode that the first rule of the code was 'Dont get caught'.
So why before did he work so hard to not kill innocent people who were on to him. (I.E. holding Doakes prisoner, that guy writing the book on Hanna and trying to buy him off.)
According to the code if someone is about to catch him shouldn't he be allowed to kill them even if they never killed anybody?
Yeah, I don't see any way Hannah poinsoned Deb. This is the kind of show where they don't NOT show something that would be critical to the plot like that. Usually they practically zoom in on the important stuff. Had Hannah poisoned Deb, we would have been shown it, explicitly, with Hannah making the shifty eyes and the whole deal.
The trailer for the finale did look nuts, but they've been extremely misleading with their trailers before.
Yvonne Strahovski is almost perfect. Those eyes, that hair, silky smooth skin, pink lips on top of that body. Hannah makes me drool every Sunday.
Can't believe Dexter chose emo Deb over her, Hannah doesn't use pills. Deb was the one going ham on those pills. Freaking ruined everything. Dex better fudge the shit out of Deb in the Finale. Next season they gotta be together vs LaGuerta.
Anyone know why Yvonne Strahovski doesn't get lot of TV/Movie roles? Her acting is great, and she is the hottest TV actress along with Alison Brie. Yet she doesn't really show up a lot since Chuck.
