Spoiler Alert Thursday
The only new show this week was the season finale of “Dexter,” maligned by many. That Jennifer Carpenter/Deb is being forced to go through with this arc seems rather insulting to her as a person and rather strange as a character. In Blythe’s view, the psychologist planted the suggestion in Deb’s mind because she’s a meddler (or worse). It just doesn’t make sense. I’ve been saying for a while that one day Deb will have to catch Dexter in the act of killing someone–I just didn’t think it would be this season. If Deb and Dexter “team up” as a brother/sister lovers killing team, then I’m definitely out.
We’ve been re-watching the season in an absence of anything else to watch–looks like rewatching “Game of Thrones” will be deferred until the next week; given that winter has not yet arrived in Ottawa, I don’t think the Starks will mind. We paid especially close attention to Gellar and his interactions with the world this time through. Generally, he does abstain from interacting with the world except for when it is actions that Travis has or will perform in the future–for instance, designing the tableaus. However, in the restaurant scene–where Travis improbably picks up and fucks what is supposed to be (I think) a “hot chick”–Gellar does not have a coffee cup, but in the nightclub scene when they are looking for the Whore of Babylon, he does have a cup and both his and Travis’s cup are clearly shown on the counter when they leave. But, when Gellar is stroking the “hot chick’s” hair, she doesn’t seem to notice.
Brian/ITK also seems to have a greater capacity for interaction with the world–he eats food (repeatedly) and he kills the motel owner. Harry, however, does not appear to interact with the world. Hypothesis: if the ghosts are “real,” it would seem that “Dark Travellers” have a greater capacity for interaction with the world than do the “Light Travellers.” But then, maybe Harry just sucks.
For those of you who watch “Bored to Death,” it was mercifully cancelled.
