What I'm Watching: Dexter

Dexter: Season 2, Episode 6 "Dex, Lies, and Videotape" (B-)

Sadly, this episode feels very out of step for this usually fantastic show. I have been hoping for a copycat killer for a while but I wish it could have been someone a bit more inspired and serious. I for one was completely happy with the old Dexter, and his obsession with becoming the "new Dexter" is a bit uncalled for. I think it is about time someone else learned Dexter's secret, preferably either Deb, Maria, Batista, or Lundy. Rita's jealousy is understandable but Lila's message is so blatant and dumb on her part. This should be a lesson to everyone never to leave confidential information in a voicemail. I am not happy that Dexter did sleep with Lila, but I suppose it is good that he is finally showing some emotion and not keeping it a secret from her. The show needs a major event to redirect it, and hopefully Dexter's responses to the police hot on his trail should be just that.
