What I'm Watching: Dexter

Dexter: Season 2, Episode 11 "Left Turn Ahead" (B)

Lila's constant need for attention is not just occupying too much of Dexter's time; it is taking up too much of each episode's precious minutes. At least she is doing something productive by threatening to press charges against Batista if Dexter refuses to come back and be with her. She was such a strong character in the beginnign of the season, defying the stereotypical "hot sponsor who only wants to help" image and becoming an impressive character. Now she has gone off the deep end and the only thing that is impressive, and not in a good way, is her ability to remain desperate and manipulate everyone around her. Deb is still quite whiny about her relationship with Lundy, and that is also taking up too much of the show's attention. Dexter and Doakes are really the most interesting part of the series, and their conversation in this episode demonstrates that well. As for that ending - next week will be mighty interesting.
