What I'm Watching: Dexter

Dexter: Season 2, Episode 4 "See-Through" (B+)

This episode boasts some really intense scenes involving Doakes and entrancing conversations with the likes of Dexter and Batista. Dexter's sponsor is a better plotline that I could ever have hoped for, and it gives Rita an entirely new side that we have not seen of her before. The new captain's meltdown is pretty embarassing and not a route the show needs to take, but it is all made good by the shocking (to me, at least) revelation that Maria was sleeping with her fiancee. Debra is forming an intriguing but strange relationship with the FBI guy. Dexter is doing a very smart job in dealing with his pursuers by ruining the bodies. The whole Bay Harbor Butcher as Avenging Angel thing is excellent. The recent Jodie Foster film "The Brave One" should take notes. What a terrific ending - Rita's mother picks up on Dexter being a really good actor.
