"Paul Levinson's It's Real Life is a page-turning exploration into that multiverse known as rock and roll. But it is much more than a marvelous adventure narrated by a master storyteller...it is also an exquisite meditation on the very nature of alternate history." -- Jack Dann, The Fiction Writer's Guide to Alternate History

Dexter 4.10: More than Trinity

A jam-packed edge-of-your-seat can't-catch-your-breath episode 4.10 of Dexter tonight, in which -

.Debra nabs Christine as Lundy's killer, with razor-sharp logic and DNA from Christine's toothbrush in Quinn's apartment, which also tells Debra and the gang that Christine is related to the Trinity killer.

.Dex learns that the Trinity killer in incorrectly named - Lundy missed that Trinity also always kills a fourth, a 10-year old boy, before the three, symbolizing Trinity's attempt to preserve forever his last time of innocence.

.Dex stops the Quadro Killer just on the edge of killing a new 10-year old, and preserving him forever in concrete. This whole story line was one of the most harrowing and well-played ever on Dexter.

.Masuda's frustrated in his frequent attempts to tell Dex about Rita kissing the next door neighbor.

.Deb gets a visit from another one of Harry's informants, whom we barely see.

.Speaking of Harry, he again had probably the single sharpest, funniest moment on the show, looking at his watch, signifying the pressure Dexter correctly sees himself under to get out the station house and find Quadro and the boy.

.Dex has never been better as father, bathing baby Harrison and holding him when he has a fever.

I've included some seemingly less important events in the above, because on Dexter you just never know. Just two episodes left in this superb, brilliantly powerful season 4.

This show just keeps getting better. Great episode. As you said, you have to pay attention to the small stuff, because you're never sure how it will come back later...
