The Definition of a Paradox!
20 October 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the fifth episode of the third season of Dexter and once again, it's another fine episode. This episode clearly defines the nature of a paradox and coming from Dexter's mouth himself, it's about creating and taking life. This episode further explains the conflict between Dexter's family life and his "dark passenger" life. Also, this episode has us wondering if anyone else knows about Dexter's dark secrets.

In this episode, "Turning Biminese," Dexter and Rita argue about finding a house and moving in with each other which Dexter clearly doesn't want. While on a golfing trip, Miguel tells Dexter about this killer who keeps on getting off and Dexter decides to make him his next victim. But while away, Rita has an emergency health problem and Dexter is nowhere to be found. Also, Debra seems to be getting a bit fond of her informant.

Overall, this is a great episode and it explores the relationship between Dexter and Rita even more. I think we must ask ourselves whether it's even logistically possible for the two to get married. I guess we will find out soon enough. I rate this episode 9/10.
