"I don't run. I make people run." –Dexter
Maybe it's just me, but every time a character takes a bath on this show I expect Trinity to rise from the grave and slit a throat. Maybe that's just wishful thinking because I love, love, love John Lithgow, but every dream sequence is an opportunity for a cameo. Speaking of dream sequences, instead of a bath time slash 'n' dash, we got Dexter as David Fisher (someone's been raiding the Six Feet Underwardobe), proposing to Deb while she's submerged in a pool of blood. Welcome back to the party, sibling incest plotline!
"Everything is in my control." –Dexter
Episode 4 is all about cracked exteriors. Good guys. Bad guys. Crazed maniacal killers. Everyone's losing their shit this week, and Dexter is no exception. Not that I can blame him. Deb rubs Rita's death in his face. He gets trapped in the Minotaur's maze of strobe light hell. Jaime's throwing away Lambie. Harrison's on vacay. It's just so MUCH. It's like the time I came home from college for the summer and found out that my parents had turned my bedroom into a GUEST ROOM. Talk about maze of hell! Where was my Aiwa boom box? What about my Leonardo DiCaprio collage? And I can't even talk about my Popples sheet set, which I'm sure is a collector's item by now. Gone. ALL GONE. So many memories. So much Scotch tape. And nobody bothered to ask me. Plus, I was on Atkins, so I was VERY emotional and carb-less. So, I TOTALLY get it when Dexter freaks out on Deb and then literally spits out the F-bomb pre-Minotaur staking.
"I do, and I don't do." –Deb
Who throws a shoe?! This bitch! That cemetery confrontation with Speltzer was awwwwesome. And now it seems she's finally coming around to, well, maybe not Dexter's way of thinking, but it's clear that she gets it. Like, fo' real, fo' real. And even though Speltzer's confession got thrown out, Deb had some mad skillz in that interrogation room. Killer's prostitute mom = confession gold, e-v-e-r-y time.

- A-HA! Isaac and Victor were lovers! No wonder he's so dead set on catching his killer. After all, he seemed a little too mid-level for all of this hoopla.
- "I don't run. I make people run. However, I do run if there's a bull coming after me with an ax." –Dexter
- Alex the bartender only gets one measly shot of vodka before shooting himself in the head?? I'd need at least four Quaaludes, a horse tranquilizer and a tank of nitrous.
