To say that there may be some tension between Deb and Dexter at the start of this Sunday night's episode might be an understatement, given the events of last Sunday night's "Scar Tissue." The preview for "This Little Piggy" suggests some serious couch time for Deb and Dexter to deal with what Deb did. Spoilers if you aren't caught up on Dexter through "Scar Tissue"!
I guess if Deb were going to kill herself and her brother, a last minute jerk of the steering wheel would be her method of operation. She's always been sort of erratic and unpredictable. But honestly, given how poorly planned and executed it was, is it safe to assume this was a major cry for help and not an actual attempt to end it all? Because really, she couldn't have done a worse job, considering it doesn't look like either of them were even hurt in the ordeal. Never mind that though. What's done is done and now it needs to be dealt with. What could be interesting is that Dexter now has cause to be upset with Deb, which could shift things in their relationship in another drastic way. But given what we've seen in the preview, it looks like there may be other matters to deal with. Vogel's been taken!
"You can hate me for the rest of your life…"
That pretty much confirms that Dexter was mad at Deb for what she did. Or maybe he's mad for not letting him drown. Either way, the incident seems to be a game changer for them, and given the tension between these two since Laguerta's death, a game changer seemed necessary to get them back to speaking terms. Whether or not this is it remains to be seen, but something is definitely happening here.
And it looks like Dexter has a new case to work on. That brings us to the second clip for Episode 5:
Is it me or is there something off about pink-shirt-guy? He kind of reminds me of a more preppie kind of Dexter. But maybe that's what we're supposed to think. Either way, it looks like Dexter's got some work to keep him busy when he isn't dealing with Deb and Vogel.
