TURNAROUND!

DEXTER-SEASON SEVEN: Although the post-Doomsday killing confrontations between Dexter & Debra (the phenomenal Michael C. Hall & Jennifer Carpenter, both who deserve long overdue Emmys!) which exposed Dexter’s secret life as a vigilante serial killer should have been the entire primary focus of the season premiere instead of playing out lazily over the first two episodes, the (hopefully) lucky 7th year of this truly inspired horror series finally kicked into high gear as several interesting, interconnected storylines played out seamlessly since: the highway shooting death of Chicago detective Mike Anderson (Billy Brown), pitting Miami Metro Homicide against surprisingly cool, slick, smooth Ukrainian mobsters George Novikov (Jason Gedrick), the manager of a high-class strip club & crime boss Isaac Sirko (Ray Stevenson, this season’s primary villain), whose enforcer Viktor (Enver Gjokaj) was Mike’s shooter & subsequently murdered by Dexter. In other subplots which thankfully don’t involve any political angles like in seasons past: Quinn romances hot blonde bombshell Nadia (Katia Winter), an exotic dancer at Sirko’s nightclub; Capt. LaGuerta (Lauren Velez) reopens the Bay Harbor Butcher case in the wake of the Doomsday killings after finding one of Dexter’s blood slides at the scene of the crime; Dexter engages in a cat-and-mouse game with lab tech geek Louis (Josh Cooke), who is suspicious of Dexter’s involvement in the Ice Truck Murders from Season 1; and Dexter’s strange camaraderie with a former Bonnie & Clyde duo…suicidal convict Wayne Randall (Daniel Buran) and his young paramour Hannah McKay (Yvonne Strahovski, another sexy blonde in the Hitchcock tradition). But this is Hall & Carpenter’s show from start-to-finish! The psychological pathology between Dex & Deb make them the most interesting dysfunctional siblings on television! My grade for Season 7 so far: A-
