Dexter’s getting all heat and fuzzy.

On Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 3, Dexter pushes his limits, attempting to stave off a prison investigation.

It’s not as simple to be a serial killer in Iron Lake because it was in Miami.

Cool Harrison - Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 3

Come to consider it, perhaps it’s simple sufficient — you simply have to select victims nobody will miss. There’s the “hunter” who stored Lily the backpacker captive, solely to launch her and gun her down for sport.  

He then proceeds to clean her, drain her physique of blood, and embalm her. It’s definitely not the primary time he has executed this. Does he maintain all of them? Like looking trophies?

That has obtained to be the person accountable for the lacking girls Angela is so determined to seek out — even Iris, who seems to have been Angela’s good good friend on the very least. 

So, who’s it? Kurt Caldwell? Edward Olson? Old wealthy white males at all times appear to get away with all the things, however perhaps it is a misdirect. Olson was SO creepy in his interplay with Audrey. It could not be that apparent, may it?

Watch, it’s going to be Fred Jr. or somebody innocuous like that, simply to mess with the viewers! 

Edward Olson - Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 3

Dexter immediately references Fargo with the woodchipper, and the homage is certainly felt, notably within the scene of Lily running in sluggish movement throughout the white, snowy area.  

The writers get pleasure from being playful with Dexter. When he mentions having fun with these “CSI” exhibits to Damian, Michael C. Hall even appears to be like on the digicam for a break up second.

Now, they’ve even obtained a true-crime podcaster in on the motion — Molly Park (Jamie Chung).

Will she be a ruthless femme fatale, together with her sights set on Sergeant Logan?

Molly Park - Dexter: New Blood

Here’s the factor — when it comes right down to it, Logan is a good cop. When questioning Dexter, he stays genial however relentless. 

Logan has recognized “Jim” for some time, so perhaps he has a way about him — an instinct that one thing’s a little bit off about the man. 

It’s ironic as a result of it seems like Dexter has now genuinely misplaced his urge to kill. He desires to take care of this household he is creating with Harrison that extends out with Angela and Audrey. Covering up the one homicide goes to take each trick within the ebook.

I’ve gotten rusty in my abstinence.


It’s not that he feels unhealthy about killing Matt, however now his stakes are considerably increased as a result of he has extra to lose. It’s doable he would kill once more to cowl his tracks if he needed to. 

Dexter & Kurt - Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 3

It’s a great factor for Dexter that he did not drop Matt’s stays down the mine shaft, as Angela promised Kurt she would search up there.

Mine’s not the physique I’m seeking to cover.


What would possibly occur is that the search celebration will discover the bear and resolve that is the tip of it — it is honest to imagine Matt may have been mauled and eaten.

What’s complicated is Kurt’s supposed FaceTime with Matt. If he is mendacity intentionally, why would he do such a factor? If he is been tricked, that is one other story. Who, aside from Dexter, would need Kurt to imagine his son is alive?

Where has Matt’s good friend Bill (AKA Dickface) been in all of this mess? We have not seen him since Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 1. His absence is notable. Did he have one thing to do with Kurt’s video?

He could have some solutions that might both assist or hinder Dexter. 

Audrey - tall - Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 3

Audrey and Harrison are getting nearer, sharing secrets and techniques about their previous. 

How a lot does Harrison know, actually? Hannah was a serial killer, too. Did she maintain that a part of herself closed off from him as Dexter is doing now? By all accounts, he appears to overlook her, the one mom determine he had. 

What if Harrison is defending Hannah for one thing she did, and now he is on the run? He’s not but eighteen — is CPS going to come back in search of him? He’s cautious of the police chief however not frightened sufficient to keep away from spending time together with her daughter.

It’s clear Harrison has seen some violence, however whether or not he’ll ever disclose this to his father or Audrey stays to be seen.

Harrison in the cold - Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 3

What’s worrisome is Harrison’s friendship with Ethan and what is going to develop from it. Ethan has violent ideas. Harrison can manifest them bodily.

Someone’s going to get harm — perhaps even killed — and my money’s on Zach. If Harrison involves Dexter for assist, Dexter would possibly present him how you can cowl it up or body Ethan someway. 

Is Harrison actually a great child, or does he have his father’s darkish tendencies in spite of everything? Is he Rita’s son or Dexter’s? 

Maybe Harrison’s entire reasoning behind looking for out Dexter within the first place was within the hopes that his father may shed some gentle on his darkness.


One factor that Dexter: New Blood does effectively is giving area to the traditions and rituals of the Seneca folks. 

The deer burning scene was stunning. It felt proper to provide reverence to the “character” that was arguably the catalyst for Matt’s homicide.

Audrey’s look after her land is obvious in her environmental stance and the animals that stay there. She and her mom could have a tense relationship at occasions, however there’s a lot of mutual love and respect between them.

In a spot that is so distant, Angela Bishop is the bridge that tries to carry each side –the settler and the Indigenous — collectively. It’s at all times going to be tenuous, and she or he could by no means really feel actually related to both aspect, however it’s price it to her.

Angela is a good character — she’s not afraid to face up for herself however nonetheless is aware of how you can be a diplomat. She says what she means, whether or not it is to her crew, her previous mates, Kurt, or her daughter.

Angela at work - Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 3

Dexter’s runarounds have been impressed and frantic. The “dance of the canine” had an virtually mystical high quality to it — and, as at all times, the soundtrack is on level. 

Things obtained a little bit wild went Dexter discovered the bear — however just for a second! Dexter obtained to really feel like prey, and it did not look like an satisfying expertise. He’s not in Miami anymore!

Bears. Dogs. I miss the times when the one animals I needed to fear about have been alligators.


It was additionally extraordinarily handy that the incinerator was simply left burning, unsupervised. Is this only a regular, small-town factor? Hopefully, Dexter was watching his again, and he’d higher hope there have been no hidden safety cameras there.

I’d be shocked if this act does not come again to hang-out him. For all the difficulty he went by to cowl up Matt’s homicide, the answer appeared virtually too simple. 


Dexter continues to underestimate these round him.

Small-town cops will be simply pretty much as good at their jobs as big-city police. Angela and Logan (and Teddy to a sure extent) could not have as a lot expertise as their Miami counterparts, however they’re additionally not as jaded or burnt out.

Damian, the crime scene investigator, proves that he is rattling good at his job regardless of appearances. Despite it creating an enormous headache, Dexter has to confess that Damian is pretty much as good at his job as Dexter as soon as was.

Blood is the physique’s reality.


Watching Damian work, Dexter additionally appears to really feel a twinge of regret for having needed to go away his different ardour behind — analyzing crime scenes.
