It appears that Dark Passengers run inside the family. 

On Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 4, Dexter confirms his suspicions that Harrison has violent tendencies, just like his costly earlier dad.

Not solely that, nonetheless now the identification of Iron Lake’s completely different serial killer is principally confirmed — along with the people who might convey him to justice.


It’s loads fulfilling watching Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall play collectively. They have on a regular basis had such tense, collaborating chemistry, and as a long-time fan, it’s so satisfying to see them once more at it as soon as extra. She’s fireside to his ice.

The method Dexter makes use of “Deb” on this episode is sort of theatrical, touching her face tenderly after stabbing her inside the gut. She responds by showcasing the entire emotion he’s forcing himself to suppress — hope, fear, rage, love, disappointment. 

You’re so completely completely different. It’s going to be not attainable so as to have a relationship together with your particular person son.


Dexter revels in getting to analyze the blood spatter at a legal offense scene. He may be rusty at defending up a murder, nonetheless his “forensic thoughts” stays to be as sharp as ever. It was such a “primary” Dexter scene, of him being in his ingredient and deducing what actually occurred. 

The undeniable fact that his son was behind the assault solely made it further vital.

Dexter at the scene - Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 4

One issue’s for constructive — Dexter sneaks spherical far an extreme quantity of. The murder, the incinerator, the police station, and now the varsity. It’s too small a metropolis for his earlier habits. Pretty rapidly, Dexter goes to start arousing suspicions — that’s, if he hasn’t already.

We’re pretty constructive Kurt Caldwell is the “Hunter” killer, now, correct? At this degree, it’s unlikely it might presumably be anyone else. There was the creepy cabin, with the hurricane doorways, and the voiceover from Harrison about duality. That’s pretty blatant.

Kurt undoubtedly suspects Dexter of 1 factor. It may should do with Dexter dwelling so shut by to the place Matt disappeared. Do completely different serial killers have “serial killer radar,” the place they’ll acknowledge that part of themselves in others like them?

The scene with Kurt and Dexter on the porch felt, as soon as extra, like “primary” Dexter. It had secure showing, underlying stress, points unsaid, and two monsters conversing as common individuals. Could Kurt have been talking about what a horrible father he was was to lure Dexter into admitting one factor?

Though Dexter didn’t confess, he did slip up barely. Casual dialog is the place you have to be most in your guard! 

That man’s fishing — and I merely nibbled.



Kurt’s lies about the FaceTime with Matt are sloppy and nonetheless difficult. Is he truly making all of it up so that he can get revenge for himself? That appears as if a stretch, to not level out suspicious, significantly if he has killed these ladies. 

One issue’s for constructive — Kurt seems to have little or no respect for Angela’s skills as a police officer. Maybe he needs the police off his once more, and he’s making an attempt to get her to drop the case. Angela might end up doing that anyway as a result of the completely different case is nearer to her coronary coronary heart.

The Molly/Angela team-up is beautiful nonetheless welcome. Their personalities are in stark distinction, nonetheless they every want the equivalent issue — justice for these missing, doubtlessly murdered ladies. Angela will do one thing to look out out about these missing ladies, so she’s going to hardly flip her nostril up on the belongings Molly provides.

Whether Molly has an ulterior motive stays to be seen — she’s honest to the aim of developing others squirm. She appears to be on the extent, if not barely shameless. 

I’m not a reporter. I’m a podcaster. Print is lifeless.


Molly's Martini - Dexter: New Blood

This Iris story will need a payoff. It’s Angela’s raison d’etre and she or he deserves (dramatically satisfying) closure. There is on a regular basis the possibility that Iris was a sufferer of the “Hunter” method once more inside the day, nonetheless it is likely to be a discount to look out out that she actually did make it out and is flourishing someplace else.

Dexter should be very cautious spherical Molly. Odds are she’s already completed an episode on the Bay Harbor Butcher — what if Harrison comes all through it and locations the gadgets collectively? 

Dexter (and presumably Harrison, too) might uncover out about Angela’s investigation into the missing ladies, then do some sleuthing of their very personal and try to beat her to the punch.

Don’t be shocked if that drone Kurt gifted Harrison comes into play come what may, as useful surveillance — maybe it’s going to catch video footage of Chloe escaping the hurricane doorways and being shot.


Dexter veered from the Code further normally in his later kills. Originally, he was solely alleged to kill murderers who had evaded the justice system. But lastly, he started messing with the investigations to have the satisfaction of the kill himself sooner than the police may catch them — see Trinity, as an illustration.

Harrison: What do you do to deal?
Dexter [voiceover]: I wrap harmful guys in plastic and kill them.

Harrison is conscious of about the Trinity Killer. What’s further, his weapon of different is equivalent one Trinity used to kill Rita. It makes you shock how loads Hannah instructed him — or what Harrison found from CPS in Miami. How loads he’ll share with Dexter — or ask of him — stays to be seen. 

Harrison stays to be such a thriller.

He’s been gone so prolonged — what has he completed in these remaining ten years? He’s purchased demons — he was “born in blood” just like his father. While the Deb aspect of Dexter is horrified and saddened by this news, Dexter appears to be the proudest he’s ever been and feels a closeness to his flesh and blood that has been missing until now. 


Is Harrison good or harmful? Or a bit bit of every? And what does Dexter want him to be?

Dexter’s inside wrestle is so authentically portrayed by Hall (with the assistance of Carpenter). Dexter is clearly combating being so comfy about all the factor. He is conscious of it is likely to be larger for Harrison if he have been common, nonetheless Dexter will now have the power to affix with him and freely provide helpful advice, ultimately. 

I assume all of us have two sides to us. Maybe we’re barely bit hero and, I have no idea, barely bit monster. It’s all about which aspect wins out in the long term.


Harrison lies to his father’s face numerous situations, nonetheless Dexter wouldn’t seem to ideas. Dexter even realizes that, on an instinctive diploma, Harrison is making an attempt to honor his Code. It may be specific if Dexter may inform Harrison about Harry, what his father did for him, and what Dexter hopes to maneuver on to Harrison. 

What’s telling is that Harrison shouldn’t be afraid to call out the bullies to their faces. He wouldn’t care what people think about him, or that’s he’s associated to the would-be school-shooter. Is he genuinely remorseful about shedding his solely pal? Was it a set-up all alongside, or did he see the possibility and seize it?

Harrison is just about pretty much as good an actor as Jack Alcott, who performs him, which is the entire further intriguing. Hopefully, further of his secrets and techniques and strategies may be revealed. Will he confess them to Audrey, who clearly has a young spot for him? He seems to genuinely like her. It’s all so messy and open-ended, with loads ground however to cowl. 

Happy Harrison - Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Episode 4

In so some methods, “primary” Dexter was on our screens as soon as extra. Even though he hasn’t killed shortly, you get the sense that this new connection to his son might sate his hunger.

What do you suppose about Harrison’s motivations? What’s he hiding?

What will we think about Kurt as a result of the killer of the missing ladies? Will Dexter uncover out first, or will Angela and Molly?
