On Dexter, love is as thick as blood and last week it was everywhere. Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) loves Dex (Michael C. Hall), Sirko (Ray Stevenson) still pines for Baskov (Enver Gjokaj), and Dex has it bad for Hannah McKay (Yvonne Strahovski). So who will be true and who will be betrayed?
Dexter, Starring Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter, airs Sundays at 9:00pm EST on Showtime.
Sirko's Koshka pals have sent two dudes to slay him. So how does he deal? Why, he calls on Dex for help, of course, offering to spare him if Dex helps him fight back. No can do. So he kidnaps Hannah, which proves persuasive. Guess that's the art of the deal in Kiev.
Ever since she found the blood slide at the Travis Marshall (Colin Hanks) crime scene, María LaGuerta (Lauren Vélez) has been circling back to the Bay Harbor Butcher case in the hopes of exonerating her old pal, Doakes (Erik King). She's so convinced the Butcher lives, she even calls on Deputy Chief Matthews (Geoff Pierson), whom she blackmailed out of office. Very cold. He offers to help if she'll push for his reinstatement. Why does he want back in? His boat is expensive.
Sure, Hannah is chained and under watch and key, but it doesn't mean she can't work her charms. Before you can say, "you're kidding," she talks Sirko's henchman into picking green tomatoes for her to fry up. Next thing you know, he's getting cracked in the skull, and stabbing her on the way down. Don't worry. She ain't dead yet. Deb arrives just in time on a hunch.
Dead Men Tell No Tales
Sure, it's easy to confide in someone who's about to kill you. What could be more intimate? But the bonding knows no bounds between Dex and Sirko, who solidify a bromance while tracking Sirko's hit men. They make a great team, but it's all cut short by George Novikov, (Jason Gedrick), who shoots Sirko. Sirko's last wish is to be buried with Baskov in the deep blue sea. And he manages to give him more brotherly advice in the short trip out there than any family member over the last seven seasons.
So maybe Sirko wasn't so bad after all? Well, if you're marking on a curve, which only seems fair. It is Dexter after all.
"Holy filet of f---!"
-- Deb is freaked when she sees a torched body at a crime scene.
"You trying to have a moment? I don't bond."
-- Dex is trying to keep Sirko at arm's length.
"Has anyone ever told you, you have serious trust issues?"
-- Sirko, the cold blooded killer, thinks Dex is standoffish. "How is it you can be absolutely fearless in the face of death and yet so afraid to live?"
-- Sirko reads Dex, with his last dying breath.
"Find something for us to watch, and none of the American reality s---. "
-- Hannah's captor wants to watch television.
