What I’m Watching: Dexter: New Blood

Dexter: New Blood: Season 9, Episode 6 “Too Many Tuna Sandwiches” (B+)

Seeing Dexter respond to being pulled over by Angela when he thought it was a sex thing and she actually knew who he really was ended up being far less unpleasant than it could have been, particularly because he told her a story that she mostly bought about needing to leave that traumatic point of his life behind. It didn’t help him at all that Harrison got caught in Audrey’s bed by a furious Angela just after that, though it’s good for Harrison to have someone like that to confide in who’s not a secret serial killer. Dexter is not doing a great job of keeping his emotions in check, marching onto the wrestling floor to have a go at Kurt, who is definitely not happy with him after he showed up unannounced at his cabin where he was certainly about to imprison Molly. It’s hard to imagine that she’s not going to press and start researching Kurt now, and she’s likely to find her way to Dexter’s true identity before long. Seeing Dexter and Harrison in therapy together is interesting, and I feel like it would be smart for Dexter to let Harrison in on his dark passenger sooner rather than later since he should give him that important guidance he needs before he goes down an even darker path. He’s not likely to be the target of any police attention at this moment given Angela’s new harrowing discovery, one that is going to shake Iron Lake to its core as old skeletons are literally unearthed.
