Dexter and Deb, Going too far.

The walls continue to close in on our dear, dark defender but he has a new ally in his sister Deb who is digging herself in deeper than she should and deeper than anyone ever expected. Through all of this I have been left wondering when the story line about her falling in love with Dexter from last season will be brought back into play. The sexual tension between them has been unbearable lately and the stakes keep getting raised with each passing week. My guess is that Deb sticking by him and helping when she can is much more than just brotherly love but we shall see. Knowing that they were married in real life and recently divorced adds a very realistic edge to their fights together on the show.

We were also introduced to a young girl named Hannah who went on a killing spree with her boyfriend years earlier. She is helping find bodies they buried together and she is getting snuggly with Dexter. There are girls who like bad boys but Hannah seems to like monsters and they both sense the darkness within each other.

When Isaac and the Russians start following Dexter around, Deb and Dexter spend a night together hiding out in a cheap hotel together and then when Isaac is arrested, Dexter goes to see him and jail. Their conversation through the glass was one of the most amazingly well filmed scenes I have ever seen, the killers saw their own reflection in each other and Isaac promised that it was far from over. When Ray Stevenson says he is still coming for you, a lesser person would be scared; Dex looks at it as a challenge. This seasons big killers have been some of the best since the trinity killer in season four.

With a season and a half to go, there is no telling what might happen now and how it will all play out. With everyone watching Dexter has to plan his moves carefully, having Deb on his side could help things work out for the best but it could also turn the tables and destroy them both. All we can do is make sure we are watching Showtime at 10pm on Sundays to see for ourselves.

Homeland, Episode 5, Season 2.

It is 5am on Monday morning. After a weekend of holiday celebrations, I was ready to go catch up on some sleep, and then I watched the newest episode of Homeland. Now as I listen to hurricane Sandy get going outside my window I find myself yelling at the TV and biting my nails away. This is the episode we have all been waiting for since this show began.

Two weeks ago, secrets were uncovered during a CIA op in Beirut. After going through a period of self-doubt that led to Carrie going through electro shock therapy, Carrie was fired from the CIA. When an asset came forward with information and said she would only share it with Carrie, Saul and David were forced to call her back in for help. Even though the mission did not go as planned, even though Carrie almost got herself and her whole team killed, she also got the most important piece of intelligence anyone could possibly ask for, on accident even.

Last season, Sgt. Brodie recorded a video explaining why he was blowing himself and half the government up. It went missing when Brodie did not go through with his suicide. The tape was sewn into the bag that Carrie shoved all the paperwork she could into and it landed in Saul’s hands. Saul watched the tape and did a very good job hiding it as he made his way back to the United States, which was good because the powers that be knew he had it somewhere and they knew the damage it could cause. As soon as Saul came back, he showed Carrie that she was right all along. An investigation was launched and Carrie worked her way back into her former job, forgiven and even given a new level of respect from her colleagues.

Being someone who roots for the underdog, the villain and the characters that were tragically misunderstood, it felt good when Carrie ended up meeting Brodie at a bar in the hotel he was staying in because his wife threw him out. Lies can bury a person, as the good congressman is slowly learning. The last episode ended with Carrie confronting Brodie, blowing the cover of the investigation and watching while Nicholas was hauled off to an undisclosed location by the CIA.

Episode five opened with Brodie, dazed and coming to his senses, cuffed to a chair in some dark, creepy warehouse. In the room next door, Carrie, Saul and a few others watched his every move.

The first person to interrogate him played the role of bad cop perfectly but got nowhere. After that Carrie was sent in, Carrie got the ex-Marine to break down and admit everything. To do so, Carrie had to be more honest than anyone should have to be, on the other hand, it could have been just a tactic, a tactic that worked flawlessly. Once he spilled his guts, Brodie was released under the condition that he works to help the CIA take down Abu Nazir.

When Brodie was sent home, Jessica was waiting for him and his real battle began. While he was focused on keeping the right mask on at the right time, his family life has been deteriorating at a very rapid pace. Just as Brodie starts to come clean about some of his tangled webs, his daughter Dana has gotten caught up in secrets of her own. Her new relationship with the vice president’s son is already more complicated than anything about her has been since the show started.

Everything may have changed in episode but many things are going to stay the same. Brodie is now a triple agent and we have no idea what might happen now, will he keep on his path and play everyone? Now that things have reached a fever pitch, it will be interesting to see what the next few weeks will bring in the world of Homeland where nothing will ever be as it seems.

Quick and Dirty Catch Up.

  *Over the last few weeks I have been plagued by internet issues and health issues so I have not been keeping up with my writing as much as I normally would, for that I am sorry. It does however mean that I got sucked into a bunch more shows in my time of bored confinement. Winter is coming and I have to say I am looking forward to it. To keep this brief and to cover everything I want to cover, I will keep it to short, random thoughts about each episode and show, quick and dirty style.

 

Sons of Anarchy.                FX 10pm on Tuesday

Big changes in the club this season, everyone’s lives are being turned upside down and many are coming to an end as well. With Jax at the head of the table, not everyone is happy about it so as always there is big trouble in little Charming. Gemma is not handling the events of last season very well and seems to be on an unending bender, introducing us to a Latino pimp played by Jimmy Smitts and his escort service.

Survivor.                 CBS 8pm on Wednesday

Lots of rain and people behaving badly as usual and the chick I was rooting for was taken out for medical reasons. The child star and the baseball player are still there and so are two of the returning players and some more rain.

Nashville.                     ABC 10pm on Wednesday

This show surprised me in so many ways, first off because I don’t really like country music, I don’t really like soap operas and I don’t really think characters glorifying shallow, pretentious girls is a very positive message to send, the world is what it is though. So, the Queen of country music starts freaking out about a rising young starlet and her own declining record sales. While they are focused on destroying each other and fighting over the handsome charming guitar singer, a cute little waitress and her friend who runs the soundboard at the local bar do one song at an open mike night and are lucky enough to have a very special guest in the audience, a guest who is going to change everyone’s lives sooner or later. If this show is good enough to keep someone like me watching, it really must have something really special going for it, so I think any fan of that style of music will fall in love.

American Horror Story.              FX 10pm on Wednesdays

Season two takes us from the house in LA to an asylum somewhere in Massachusetts in the 60’s where most of the patients are not even half as crazy as the people who run the place. Right from the start AHS lives up to what the fans would expect with all the madness, violence, sex and perverse humor that made season one such a hit. Many faces are back again but in very different roles and there are many new faces who have already brought a deeper level of evil to this new season, this is becoming one of my favorites.

 

*This takes us to Sunday nights, the best night of the week.

 

Once Upon a Time.                     ABC 8pm on Sundays

Magic, magic, and more magic. The evil queen’s evil mom and a handsome Captain Hook. Ummm, yeah.

Revenge.                     ABC 9pm on Sundays

Another guilty pleasure, more rich people behaving badly but the twists and turns the show takes can be fun. It is one you kind of have to watch from the beginning but it is well worth it. Emily Thorne is a smart, wealthy, and somewhat sociopathic girl who has had a really, really rough life. She finds out that all her troubles were because of this one rich family so she goes after them and digs up more and more of the mystery as she goes. I wouldn’t say this is worth missing Dexter for but it is definitely worth keeping up with online or on demand, however you prefer.

666 Park Avenue.                     ABC 10pm on Sundays

What I have gotten out of it so far is that Terry O’Quinn (John Locke/ Smoke monster from Lost) runs the Hotel California (but in New York) with his wife, Vanessa Williams. It follows a young couple as they move in and get to know all the other strange residents while strange things happen around them. A writer is being stalked by a hot blonde and there is a strange room in the basement. I have really been enjoying this show, having been a huge Lost fan but I have a hard time waiting for stories to unfold so I got the book (By  Gabriella Pierce) and when I write about this next week I will have a better idea of what is going on with this. I promise not to spoil it for anyone though.

Dexter.                            Showtime 9pm on Sundays

For being a neat monster, our dear, demented Dexter has found himself cornered in a way he never has been before and he is not handling the pressures very well. Now that his secrets are out, life has gotten complicated for the dark defender. Deb is watching his every move and doing everything in her power to keep him away from bloody crime scenes while at work, LaGuerta has the blood slide and even the Russian mob is sniffing his trail. Granted, one problem solved another for Dexter but that still leaves a lot of problems still to be dealt with. None if this stops Dexter’s dastardly deeds and fans are left on the edge of their seats wondering how it will all play out, will Dexter go on, living by the code or will he be taken down by his own department, his own sister and all the other people he has grown close to over the years? We will just have to wait and see.

Homeland.                     Showtime 10pm on Sundays

If I had a website dedicated to this show, I still could not say enough good things about it. This season has been a roller coaster ride and we are only a few episodes in. While on a mission in Beirut and while losing her mind again, Carrie accidentally finds the missing video of Brodie before his failed assassination of the Vice President and Saul finds it, bringing it to the CIA after finally vindicating Carrie and telling her she was right all along. Even though Saul brings it to the attention of his government, he also manages to keep it quiet and it leads to Brodie being investigated again and when we last saw him, black bagged and being dragged from his hotel room. Now the fun really begins, will he get out of it? Will it all come crumbling down around the good Senator?

 

*And there we go; now I feel like I can get back on track this week and get more in depth with all these great shows. Thank you for being patient with me.
