If these previews are anything to go by:
-Issac gets out of jail soon. No suprise
-The kiddies make a return after being put on a bus for about two years. Given the generally improved quality of this season, I wonder how this'll play out since it has to be more than to just remind us that they're still alive.
- Skeletor, aka Quinn, gets into a "power struggle" with the Koshkas. Unless it ends with him dead, don't give a shit
- Dexter and Hanna's relationship (cough) gets noticed by a crime writer.
- Batista gets some sort of job offer; are they trying to write him off the show?
- Its all but confirmed that the last episode is "Suprise Mothafucker". Me thinks Laguerta's little investigation winds up with Dexter on the run.
To paraphase the recaplet, this episode seems to be the end of "Act I". All the characters' arcs are spelled out and Dexter's obstacles are now spelled out. It looks like Hannah will be the core of Act II, which I'm guessing, will be Episodes 6-9, maybe 10.
I'm calling it now, this season ends with:
-Quinn dead. (dead dead, not walking dead like he is now)
-Batista off the force
-Issac dead (this is a given)
-Laguerta thinking that Hannah or Deb is the BHB. Hear me out: there was a line in yesterday's episode regarding the BHB and Debra says something to the effect of them finding out who "he" is and Laguerta says "or she." This line is too awkwardly inserted to not mean anything and we all know guest stars don't make it past the season finale...
-Dexter gets uncovered at the very end as either the BHB or at least a serial killer in general. Between Laguerta, Issac, Deb, Quinn, Issac's lacky club owner, and soon to be Hannah, there are just too many people walking around that know or will know he's a killer. There's just no way this season can end neatly like the others and its already said that this season is setting up the arc for the final.
