Yeah, the scene where Gellar was gutting alligators while Travis was off somewhere else made it seem like he was real. I keep going back and forth on it, so if the writers wanted to keep me guessing, they have succeeded. I'm leaning toward him being imaginary.

Maybe the twist is that he's real, but he's actually your mom.

And whoever is viewing it, when EJO's identity is revealed it appears as your mom.

Yep, during this part Boyfriend and I were both like, 'this is the most imaginary thing EVER'.

Anyway, this last episode was a total disappointment. I was so psyched after Brian came back and then the preview with Trinity's kid, like fork yeah, things are getting crazy again. But it was all wrapped up in a neat little package and put away at the end of the episode. Like, 'we hear you people complaining that the old seasons were better, here's something shiny to to placate you for an hour, now shut up and go away'. Bah.

I agree. I didn't want them to wrap it up in that episode.

Oh and also back on the imaginary thing - didn't baby Hanks look at a photo of himself and Gellar in this episode and then on the ad for next week it shows Dexter picking up the same photo but it only has baby Hanks??

i don't think things got as tied up as it seems, regarding the return of brian and trinities son. brian will be back for sure, as dex continues to struggle with light and dark – the two sides of him will continue to get more and more extreme.

i also don't think things are over with jonah.

Maybe Harrison will kill the babysitter and Dexter will witness him out in the marina dumping pieces of her out of his paddle boat.

Ha ha. Actually I totally think she is going to die during this season, she seems expendable.

Expendable and super annoying. I actually think Masuka's new intern/her new boyfriend seems a little too good to be true, so maybe he'll be the one who kills her.

That would save this season for me....

I'm now imagining a baby-sized kill room.

Geez, I must be the only person that didn't like this episode. I am, thus far, unimpressed with this season. I really hate the Brian character. Its like ok. We get it. Dexter struggles with with the "light and dark" I don't need a ghost chatting in his ear all episode.


This. I feel like for every series of Dexter that has interesting subtleties, that utilizes implicit aspects of character relationships to drive forward an exciting and meaningful plot, there is a crappy one like this. It feels like its been written by a bunch of children - not much is believable, or rather its impossible to continue suspending any disbelief, Dexter seems moronic, I don't understand why the viewer is supposed to care yet again about Dexter's struggle with his own yin and yang and I don't need to see it crudely played out in terms of his personal ghosts.

Rewatched it. The girl they interrogated remembers there were two guys, an older professor type and a younger guy who kept apologizing.
Unless Travis really has a Fight Club style split personality thing going on (which I very much doubt), Gellar is real and alive.
Also, gutting an alligator. I didn't need to see that. I just hope it wasn't a real one.

I thought that perhaps she remembers an older guy because she was blindfolded and Hanks in his crazy state, speaks to Gellar and also speaks 'as Gellar' if you know what I mean. Is that a stretch? I didn't think that she actually saw an older guy.

Yeah. The writing was definitely purposely ambiguous there.

Yeah, she never said she heard him, didn't she just say she heard Baby Hanks call him Professor?

having colin hanks on this season keeps making me daydream about a modern-day telling of bosom buddies (with baby hanks playing his dad's role, of course). i've been casting the peter scolari role in my head and the best one i've come up with so far is ryan seacrest.

Well that episode was stupid. The convolution of real/not real has hit a tipping point. If Gellar still ends up being imaginary, this will have been the most outlandish b.s. ever.

Also, I'm pretty sure it was Quinn who killed the escort...but what does he have on LaGuerta that would have her covering for him?

Speaking of LaGuerta, with her breathing down Deb's neck you'd think Dexter would eventually contemplate helping his sister crack a case instead of having to kill everybody himself. If Gellar/Travis go into the ocean, that might be a career ending non-clearance for Deb. Or would be if this show was still flirting with reality.

Oh I was thinking it was Matthews who was involved with the escort because wasn't that how LaGuerta got the job? She found his name in that book of Johns? But then again almost all the guys on this show either have a past with prostitutes or getting drunk and sexually harassing women. Except Dexter.

I've definitely thought it was going to have to come down to Dexter giving Deb something so she's not demoted or fired or being selfish and doing the kill himself. It kind of sucks that he has to sabotage and stuff to get his kills in. There are ways he could still give it to Deb to solve while getting to kill, though, I just doubt that's how it's going to end.

I thought Matthews at first, but then I figured LaGuerta had nothing left to parlay more dirt into. Just seems like they're really pushing Quinn's downward spiral. Is witnessing an OD, trying to help and then bailing enough to warrant a trip to Dexter's kill room? Seems like it this season, haha.

It's sad that I was rooting for Dexter to sit down and have dinner with Deb*. And in retrospect it would have been more entertaining than going to look for Gellar. What a terrible father and brother and babysitter employer.

*reminded me:

Ha.

Does Quinn know he killed that old detective guy from last season? I can't remember.
