I loved the premiere. It was so funny watching Dexter dance. I think the killers will pick up in the action department. They definitely seem like they will be morbid and creepy. I am glad to see Dexter back to his old self again.
This first episode was better than the entire last season, imo. Loved seeing the old Dex!
My favoirte line was what he said walking into his HS reunion: "it's a miracle I graduated without killing anyone."
I cracked up when his classmate asked Dexter after he got hit in the nose, "Where did you learn how to play football?" Dexter responded, "My dad." LOL
I'm a little late chiming in here, but I'll add to the great reviews of the premiere. :up I enjoyed every moment, and thought the theme of religion/faith was nicely interwoven with the changes the new season is bringing. I was a little surprised that LaGuerta and Angel called it quits, and that brief scene with her & the top cop guy made me wonder if she's the next main character to go.
I was about 50/50 on the episode. While I like that Dex seemed back in stride, and there was some reunion fun, I couldn't get past the giant holes in the main kill target of the episode. The woman classmate died with blood under her fingernails--blood that had apparently been analyzed by the local PD, which Dexter accessed the results of the tests--and the local cops never even swabbed the husband to eliminate him? That is an absurd leap of suspension of disbelief, even for this show. However, I liked the slow burn of Olmos/Hanks as a villain team.
Okay, do I have a shoddy memory (completely possible) or is the first we're learning of the Angel/Laguerta split?
You never know just how ignorant, blind, compensated or threatened, authorties may be to look the other way and just say it's suicide. I do wonder if Law Enforcement will come and question Dexter about this guy going missing. The last time he was seen was at the high school reunion. Certainly, some investigation will take place as they track down the guys last moves.
Did they say how much time has passed since last season ended?
