This week's "Goodbye Miami" episode was a bit painful to watch... for one thing I expected it to be focused on Dexter's pursuit for the Brain Surgeon Killer but instead we got scenes with Quinn and Jamie, Quinn and Deb, Deb and Batista and... excuse me, while I stifle a yawn. What was the point of the scene with Masuka and his daughter arriving high other than to give him a scene this week? It added nothing to the plot. Can we have the more interesting stuff now please?|
As for Vogel, the writing was on the wall as soon as she welcomed her son back into her life. Even without reading the spoilers I posted a few weeks back, I'd have guessed that he would kill her although it was still a shock when it happened. What strikes me as odd is Dexter's reaction to her death. She's someone who he only met a few months or so previously at most (I'm not sure on the timeline in this series so it may only be a few weeks), whatever, I'm not sure why he felt so angry that Oliver had killed her. He was supposed to have been attached to Zack Hamilton too but he never looked in the slightest bit angry or even shocked when he found his body in his apartment. I suppose the writer's are trying to show that Dexter has developed feelings now, such as his blinding love for Hannah, but even so the end scene struck me as out of character. It's how I'd expect him to react if Harrison or Deb were killed not a stranger.
As for Hannah, how stupid is she really, taking Harrison to a hospital when she is a known fugitive? The outcome was utterly predictable. Sure, it was an emergency but could she have called someone out to her? She made no attempt to disguise herself either by wearing a hat or glasses (which would only take moments to put on) and, thus, she ended up dropping Dexter right in with that FBI guy. I mean why hasn't she dyed her her and tied it back or something to make her look different from her Wanted photo? It's absurd that she hasn't IMO.
What also amazed me was Dexter's reaction to Hannah going to the hospital. If he really has normal feelings then he would have been annoyed at her in the first place for not watching Harrison properly and him getting injured in the first place.
Looks like Hannah has dropped Dexter right in it with the FBI as they now know he's likely aiding a wanted criminal and not because they've found out he is a serial killer. I can't help but think that's a bit of a disappointment; that with just two episodes to go no-one else at Miami Metro besides Deb knows who he really is. I'm beginning to think that the series will end with no-one else any the wiser as to his real background, that he'll be just someone who ran away with a fugitive because he was in luuuuuuurve. Retch.
