In “Are We There Yet?” Dexter lets himself get pulled deeper and deeper into Hannah’s web. Deb thinks Dexter is still in love with his ex and by the end of the episode, we know he is. I thought at first he might just be thinking with the wrong part of his anatomy (his heart instead of his head; although an argument can be made that he was actually thinking with his d*ck, as Deb vocalized). There’s just something about Hannah that will also attract Dexter. It’s hard to know what Hannah’s play is though. Does she want revenge for what he did to her? Does she love Dexter? Could Dexter, Hannah, and Zach have formed some sort of family?
I wonder if it was always Hannah’s plan to kill Julian Sands‘ Miles Foster. He was clearly possessive and we know Hannah only married him because she had to. He seemed to know all about her past, something he had in common with Dexter. And Hannah was really smart about the way she came back into Dexter’s life. She did just enough to freak him (and Deb) out, but she also made him curious enough to find out why she was back in Miami. When he tracked her down, Dexter realized that she’d moved on with her life. Or at least, that’s how it looked from a distance. But the closer he got the more Dexter realized things weren’t what they seemed.
Although Hannah claims she cleaned up the blood they missed after she murdered Miles, I don’t know if I believe her. Is that a strange thing to be fixated considering everything that went down in this episode? I just feel like that might come back to bite him. I kind of wanted Dexter to inspect the scene himself to make sure it was well and truly clean. And then to take her with him in pursuit of Zach Hamilton? And to tell her about Doctor Vogel? And to have dinner with Vogel? And to ask her to stay? What is Dexter doing? It’s strange to be worried about the well-being of a serial killer, but that’s where I’m at right now.
What do you think? Is Hannah in love with Dexter or is she playing the long con? Does Hannah have a scheme to take Dexter out of the game permanently? I can’t wait to find out.
Other Interesting Developments:
- Cassie’s boyfriend,Â Darri Ingolfsson‘s Saxon, recognizes Zach. He’s just not sure where he’s seen Zach before. If Quinn finds out Saxon remembers seeing Zach with Dexter, Dexter’s going to have a lot of explaining to do.
- I’m pretty wary of Masuka’s daughter,Â Dora Madison Burge‘s Niki. At first, I didn’t like it that he had her investigated and I get why she was pissed off about that. But over the past few episodes I’ve started to get a little suspicious of her. I’m not usually worried about Masuka – well, sometimes I’m worried he’ll get an STD or a punch in the face from his dirty mouth – but now I just want him to be careful where his daughter is concerned. I don’t want her to take advantage of him in any way.
- The Brain Surgeon is back and it looks like they’re probably the person who set Zach up. Am I the only one who liked the totally strange, but kind of endearing family dynamic between Dexter, Hannah and Zach? What has this show done to me? I don’t know if I can say I’m bummed that Zach’s dead, but I am surprised.
DexterÂ airs Sundays at 9/8c on Showtime.
