The second episode of season six of Dexter “Once Upon a Time”, was basically a setup for the rest of the season. It was packed with delicious morsels of change. For instance, not only did Quinn propose to Deb Morgan, but SHE SAID NO! Since Quinn is my least favorite character, I didn’t want that kind of permanent tie into the show.
Also, little Harrison is pointing out Daddy’s little brown box. Dexter’s box for his blood slides has apparently been seen… by a two-year-old. Don’t worry… Dex got Harrison his own box for his toys. This is a sign, though, that he will be noticing every little thing Dexter does.
Deb Morgan is Homicide’s new Lieutenant! Although Batista was expecting the position, Matthews gave the job to Deb. LaGuerta is always finding a way to be shady or make Matthews dislike her, and, as Batista said in the episode, he always ends up paying for it.
It is unfortunate, because Angel Batista is one of the coolest characters on Dexter. He is realistic. He has tried picking up a hooker, screwed up his marriage, and got framed by Ms. “Pardon my tits”. Nevertheless, Deb is now leading the department. She is slowly but surely becoming my hero.
As far as Hanks and Olmos’ characters go, they are setting up another crime, although I am not sure what this next one will be. They did find heavy metal toxins in the stomachs of the snakes, giving them a possible lead as to where the mamma snake was kept before she had them. A very nice catch by one of Masuka’s sexy students.
Mos plays a reformed sinner. Once a candidate for Dexter’s killing table, Brother Sam’s crime of murder went to mis-trial and then he did a stint in jail for drug possession. He now runs a auto repair shop and works as a mechanic. He takes in the bad guys as mechanics, and helps to keep them in line, all the while attributing his life and success to God.
Dexter doesn’t believe him at first, but gets a kill out of one of the men coming after one of his workers. Brother Sam is introduced very smoothly into the show, and seems to be working very well. I am very excited to see whether he really has turned his life around or not, which is weird because I already feel attached to his character, and he has only been in one episode.
4/5… it was somewhat slow-moving. I loved Quinn’s proposal idea though. Simple… yet adorable.
