Dexter S02E01 (Showtime)

After last season’s incredible finale, Dexter is back to deal with some personal problems. His life has gotten a lot more complicated ever since he killed his brother.

His sister Deb has moved in. She was dating Dexter’s half-brother and was almost killed by him. Since then, life is problematic for Dexter. He can no longer kill as easily as before. He messes up some opportunities and Dokes keeps following him around.

I really liked this episode. Once of the best moments last season was when Dexter punched out Rita’s ex. He didn’t know what to do with him. Things worked out, but not as well as he would have liked. The duality of being in law enforcement and being a serial killer is strange. It’s just a question of time before he is found out. Or will he? I recommend this show.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
