Dexter Slack Tide S04E07 (Showtime)

Red stairs

Dexter stars Michael C. Hall, most known for his role as David in the HBO drama Six Feet Under. Michael C Hall plays Dexter Morgan, a blood spatter specialist working in Miami for the police.

A lot has changed for Dexter this season. He’s married with a new house and he’s got a new baby in the world. It’s taking a toll on our favorite serial killer. He’s messing up at his job because of his lack of sleep.

Season 4 is pretty incredible. Dexter just keeps getting better. It’s been a while since I wrote this and I just didn’t have time to post these, so I decided to do so this week. Here you go!

Warning: Spoilers ahead and strong language.

Dex has a new target and delays taking on Trinity to study him further. He doesn’t know that he’s arousing Trinity’s suspicion. Trinity has been a serial killer for decades. Dexter’s appearance won’t strike him as coincidence once he starts putting two and two together. Meanwhile, Quinn is following Dexter. He thinks that something is up with him. This doesn’t look good for Dex. Luckily, Dex spots him quickly enough.

Dex is relaxing with his family on his boat when he gets a call for another body. A man shot a gator. The gator had the arm of a woman inside of it. Dex is overwhelmed by the kids after coming home. It’s like he has two jobs. Being a father is hard work. For some reason, Dexter asks Trinity’s advice. He tells him that his kids have outside interests.

Deb comes back to the station. Dex warns Christine off from pursuing her article. He makes it clear to Quinn that he doesn’t want Christine around Deb.

Let’s all welcome back Detective Fucking Morgan!
LaGuerta to her crew

They’ve identified the arm. It’s from Estrella Carazo, a Nicaraguan student that was here on an expired visa. She had a fashion shoot with Jonathan Farrow. He was accused of rape, but the charges were dropped. The detective on that case said that the witness was bought off.

Dex starts getting focused on Farrow, who says something completely inappropriate to her during the interview. Harry-in-Dexter wonders why he isn’t getting ready to kill Trinity. Dex tells himself that Harry didn’t teach him everything. He taught him to be alone and that he couldn’t be with anyone.

Dex decides to try and find stuff for the kids to do. Cody likes the Sailing Club that Dex found for him. Astor isn’t impressed with Dex’s choices for her.

Dex meets up with Trinity to cut down a tree. It’s just getting creepy and dangerous. Trinity tells Dex not to suggest things to Astor, but impose them. Trinity is getting worrisome. Dex is pushing his buttons. On the way back, they hit a deer. Trinity can’t kill it, so Dex has to do it.

Angel has found 3 other models from South America that have mysteriously disappeared. They were all models for Farrow. Dex investigates Farrow’s studio. He finds splatter evidence and a fingernail, which matches Estrella’s arm.

By interfering with Trinity, Dex might have changed the way he behaves. He’s getting quite worked up.

Deb meets Valerie. She says that she was one of his girlfriends. She says that he picked his CIs by how good he was in the sack. It’s too much. She tells Dex. Deb says that she should just leave it alone. Dex agrees. He finds his mother’s file on top of Deb’s pile. He starts to shred it. He keeps the photo.

Dex learns that he has to go with Cody to the sailing thing. She says that he can’t cancel. He has to go with Cody. This puts his plans with Farrow in jeopardy. Actually, he uses the excuse to prep his supplies for the trip to go examine Farrow. He’s got no idea that Quinn is following him. He spots Quinn in the bar. Dex uses a hot girl to ditch Quinn. Quinn knows that he’s been made.

Dex goes out with Cody the next morning. Deb presents her ideas on Trinity to LaGuerta. She gets the OK to start an investigation. It’s limited and Deb kept out her theory about Trinity shooting her and Lundy. Quinn looks like an ass in front of Angel and Deb does the same for LaGuerta.

Dex skips out while the kids are sleeping to deal with Farrow. He takes him out and dumps the body. Trinity used the lumber to create a coffin.

Dex comes back and finds out that Angel had Farrow’s assistant arrested for the murders. This means that Dex killed an innocent man.
