Make sure to check out the AOL TV recap weekly after Dexter airs on Showtime! What did you think of last night’s episode?
‘Dexter’ opened this episode by extolling the importance of ritual, which for our beloved serial killer of serial killers involves reading Harrison a bed-time story and then promptly slicing a bad guy’s throat. All in a day’s work.
This was a low-kill count episode (just 1!) that instead focused on introducing Mos Def’s Brother Sam character, setting up new developments for Deb and conflicts at Miami Metro, and letting the religious creepiness of Travis and Professor Gellar simmer on low heat.
Brother Sam, played by Mos Def, is a deep-thinking, soulful former criminal who’s used religion to rehabilitate his life, and his auto body shop to watch over a “flock” of others trying to do the same. Dexter starts off skeptical of him, and spends a lot of he episode tracking him to see if he’s still a killer.
