Yargh. I didn't read the thread b/c I'm afraid of spoilers. My friend bought season 1 a couple months ago and we watched it for 2 days straight. Now she returned from T.O. with season 2 (burnt on a DVD, I know, evil downloaders) and I can't stop watching it. FUDGE! I'm going to be tired tomorrow.

It is an AMAZING show.

I laughed when Dexter did that funny accent at the pay phone.

I haven't been crazy about this season so far, it's definitely had its moments. I just felt that last season was so intense because him getting caught was building up so much, you had no idea how or hell even if he was gonna get out of it. I also haven't been a big fan of Jimmy Smits, I just don't think he's that good and Michael C Hall is better than him in every scene. I still love the show and will watch every Sunday night, but I truly hope it starts to amp up a little bit here.

I completely agree with this.
I watched the first two seasons within two weeks time, every episode had you wanting more and more. This third season just hasn't been able to do that, every episode seems to end with nothing major happening to make you think about it all week like it should be!

I think the Identity of the serial killer will be smits or his remaining brother. Hense the weird/forced kinship between Smits and Dexter. Either Smits sees the sociopathic nature of Dexter because he is one as well or Smits recognizes the same traits in Dexter as he does his remaining brother.

^ Heh, I was wondering when someone was gonna say this.

I also think the killer is Miguel Prado. There were some subtle hints in episodes 2 and 3 (can't remember what exactly).

There was some news from the set a couple of weeks ago that gave away something important that is going to be happening sometime this season.

Highlight below to read...

There was an accident on the set and Jimmy Smits accidentally stabbed a stunt man with a real knife, rather than a prop knife.

According to the story, the stunt man was bound and gagged similar to how Dexter usually prepares his victims, and Smits picked up a real knife rather than the prop knife and stabbed the actor in the chest. Luckily, the stunt man was wearing a protective shield over his heart, so it didn't kill him. Because he was bound up, the stunt man was unable to stop Smits. Michael C. Hall realized that Smits had picked up the wrong knife, but was unable to warn him in time.

Unless it's some sort of dream sequence, it would appear that Smits will be getting a little closer to Dexter's world sometime this season.

The accident happened two and a half weeks ago, so it'll probably be close to the end of the season when that particular episode airs.


Here's the story (possibly possible spoilers): http://www.tv.com/story/11691.html

well it took a little longer than last season, but tonight's episode IMO was the one that amps up this season into new territory. i always watch on sunday because Dexter is the best show on TV right now, but now i have the same feeling of can't-wait-for-next-week-itis that i had for the previous 2 seasons. Jimmy Smits is finally becoming interesting

Great epi last night, with an interesting twist. I missed last week's episode; could someone summarize it for me?

That was a good epi.

Miguel Prado is a huge creepster.

I missed last week's eipsode and read the summary that Barnes suggested. One question: In the snippets from previous episodes, there was one of Angel with a supposed hooker who IDs herself as a cop. Can someone tell me what that was all about? I can't find that explained. I'm sure everyone has seen last week's epi, but feel free to send by PM if you don't want to spoil the fun or just post here.

She was just a random undercover cop that busted Angel, who tried to procure her services.

After last night's episode, seems like they're leading towards a possible romance between the two.

I've been avoiding this thread for a while. I got hooked on Dexter a few months ago, and caught all the first two seasons on DVD. Now, I PVR the show. So, every time this thread gets bumped, I don't want to read it for fear of seeing a spoiler. Since I saw the last episode last night, I can finally participate in this thread.

This is easily my favourite show right now. There is the occasional "yeah right" moment (e.g. Rita seems to have forgotten about Dexter's heroin addiction), but I think you have to suspend some belief when you have a show where the main character is a serial killer that prays on serial killers. One thing I really like about the show is how the intensity gradually picks up through the season. Now that I have to wait a week for new episodes, that might just drive me batty.

It's obvious that Miguel Prado has to disappear by the end of the season. Having him being a mass murderer and then being killed off by Dexter is too easy. It's possible that it will end that way, but I am thinking that it will be a little different. My current guess is that Ramon Prado is the killer that is cutting off skin patchess. So, Dexter will kill him off. Then for Miguel, my current guess is that he will kill himself. Either that, or Ramon kills him. All of the Prados are obviously messed up. We still haven't heard too much about Oscar's past. I think that the Prado family's past will develop quite a bit through the season. Oscar's killing will end up being justified, even though Dexter didn't know it to begin with.

I don't know if that;s the way I would describe Dexter's motives. He doesn't only reserve his killings to serial killers. The beauty of the show for me is just him struggling to juggle his normal life with his addiction. I think it's brilliant.
