DEXTER “Practically Perfect” Review

DEXTER practically perfect

DEXTER “Practically Perfect” Season 5 Episode 3 Review – Things are starting to pick up in this latest Dexter episode “Practically Perfect” as the dark passenger is back in action with some interesting implications.

What happened in “Practically Perfect”?

Well, a lot happened for our good ol’ Dex. First he finds a british nanny for Harrison then he takes the plunge and brings a brutal but well deserved end to Boyd although somewhat unsuccessfully at first. This all culminates with a fantastic scene at the end in which Dexter encounters the latest would be victim of Boyd played by none other than Julia Stiles.

What I Thought About “Practically Perfect”

I am happy to see that Dexter is back on the horse and taking matters in his own hands. Let’s be honest, we really watch the show to see Dexter being himself. I felt that it was time to see him back doing what he does best which is taking down bad guys.

I am also excited that there is a new parameter being introduced in the form of an innocent witness to his crime. Based on the code, Dexter can’t kill her but he also can’t risk her exposing him. What to do, What to do? Personally I am hoping that she turns out to be an ally and not a new foe. I feel like Dexter needs a friend/sidekick.

What I am not so engaged in are the other storylines in the show, like the cult killings or Batista’s problems with the brass. Not that I don’t care about the characters; but I feel like the stories are so disconnected from the Dexter plotline that I find myself losing interest when these scenes pop up. I hope the writers find a way to tie them in with Dexter somehow.

What about next week’s Dexter?

Well next week, the new episode is titled “Beauty and The Beast”. The official synopsis goes like this:

Dexter catches a mysterious woman who may have witnessed him in the act of killing a killer; Deb has a frightening run-in with a murder suspect in the Santa Muerte homicides; and Quinn uncovers more striking similarities between Kyle Butler and Dexter Morgan. (TV Guide)

This all sounds very exciting and I can’t wait to see how Dexter is going to handle the situation. Don’t forget to check out photos of next ‘s week episode of Dexter “Beauty and The Beast” here and also two clips of that episode.
