Dexter having sex with Hannah at the end was a colossally dumb decision of his, but it fits what they're trying to do with his character this season, which is to portray him as some sort of addict. Addicts have repetitive behaviour. I understood why he shacked up with Lila in Season 2 (even though I HATED her) and it's the same thing all over again with Hannah. I at least find Hannah way more interesting and tolerable to watch than gross English titty vampire, heh.
I love the dynamic they're working with re: Dexter and Deb's relationship. For once, they're really going out of their way to show just how manipulative and devious Dexter is capable of being, and because we have a character in the know constantly reacting to that (Deb) it's making us realise who Dexter really is. The way Deb bluntly broke down Dexter's relationship with Lumen was amazing. And he was such an asshole towards her in return.
And I'm so glad that it was Deb's conversation with Angel that prompted her to phone Sal, and not Dexter's cruel 'get a life' comment. I kind of hated him for that - she has to cope with so much shit from him, and he's being really ungrateful in return.
Speaking of Sal, Santiago Cabrera is one of the most attractive men I've ever seen on television, but I have a bad feeling about him. He seems sort of sleazy, and I wouldn't be surprised if he turns out to be one of Hannah's future targets. Considering that he's currently a love interest of Deb, well, he's likely not long for this world. Sigh.
I am finally starting to appreciate Ray Stevenson as Isaak. He does add something tense to this season.
I don't like to add more grist to the rumour mill, but people who are HIV-positive often also have sunken cheeks like Harrington's. The actor would have to disclose his condition, though, and there would be concerns about sharing bodily fluids like saliva with the actress who plays the stripper. It's probably not HIV/AIDS, at least I hope it's not, but the symptom fits.
I feel the same way re: the rumour mill, but I remember reading some HIV rumours about Desmond on an old Youtube video (which I think has since been removed). The guy looks really ill. He should leave the show for his own sake, and Quinn has become more or less dead weight anyway. Also, not to go too off topic, but I thought HIV could only be transferred from blood-to-blood contact? Or by sharing needles? Not by saliva?
