What I'm Watching: Dexter

Dexter: Season 2, Episode 3 "An Inconvenient Lie" (B+)

This whole fake addiction business could soon become tired, but the dual nature of the therapy is fascinating. Dexter realizing that it is helpful to talk is nearly as effective as Wayne and Dahlia Malloy's veiled phone conversation from an early episode of "The Riches", and that is a good thing. It is great for Doakes to be off Dexter's back so that he can return to his frequent and obviously healthy justice killing. I am glad that Keith Carradine did get some good material and a chance to interact with Dexter in another dual-meaning conversation. Gotta love that ending - Rita realizing that her emotionless boyfriend might have chosen a slightly too flirtateous and beautiful sponsor.
