The Happiest Place on Earth

Dexter spoilers, in case you're a season behind (that means you, dad)!!!

Season 5 of Dexter premiered last night, and was probably the most anticipated season premiere the series has ever experienced, given last season's show-stopping final scene.  Last night's episode was much more of a nail-biter than I'm used to from this show, surprisingly.  I've been less nervous watching Dexter's typical stalking and killing of his prey, how he's been shown balancing his daily life with his "Dark Passenger," than I was watching him fail to pass as a grieving widower.

Where do you think this season is going to go?  Obviously Quinn (super hot) is going to investigate Dexter, and I do think that his tryst with Deb will turn into something more.  Is Dexter going to raise Astor and Cody, or are they going to go off to grandma's house?  Won't somebody think of Harrison?  I am not sure how Dexter's going to manage to get his killing done with kids at home.  Who's going to be the Big Bad?

What did you think of the season premiere?  I hope we get to see plenty of Angel and LaGuerta this season.  Also, it was particularly delicious seeing Michael C. Hall, as Dexter, going into a funeral home and wondering how the funeral director can seem so believable when offering condolences.  I wonder if that was a purposeful shout-out to David Fisher.

Dexter, Sundays at 9pm on Showtime
