Dexter season 5 episode 4 called “Beauty And The Beast” which was directed by Milan Cheylov and written by Leonard was broadcast on the premium cable channel Showtime this evening.
“Beauty And The Beast” picked up where things left of in last week’s episode-Dex must figure out how to deal with the innocent torture victim Lumen brilliantly played by Julia Stiles who accidentally witnessed the horrific death of her kidnapper Boyd in the hands of our favorite serial killer/single father.
Lumen wakes up and starts going crazy so he drugs her as he thinks the situation through – but that is when he is called to work on a case.
So he does what all good killers do- he looks her up in the tourism center , which is the same place where Boyd was supposed to die.
But using the right words Dex was able to convince his prisoner that he was not the one who captured her and killed to others in the container.
Here is a brief presentation of the episode:
Dexter “Beauty And The Beast” Season 5 Episode 4 – Dexter finds himself in a strange situation when, instead of taking a life, he has to save one. Deb has a scary confrontation with a key suspect in the Santa Muerte murder cases. Quinn continues following up on the strange similarities between ‘Kyle Butler’ and Dexter Morgan.
We must admit that season 5 is looking very good thanks to the endless drama and suspense and unexpected twist and turns like when Lumen revealed at the end of the episode : “I thought you were a monster like Boyd.Boyd wasn’t the only one who did this to me. There were others. It’s not over.”
Stiles is a great actress who is doing a wonderful job in the role of the terrifying victim with enough guts to fight and find the bastards who tortured her.
She has made her presence known and will soon replace Rita in our hearts.
Other interesting tidbits from this week’s episode:
Sonya quitting after Dex made her work for 24 hour and taking the job again (do you think she has something bad up her sleeves?).
Quinn getting suspended for continuing to work on the Kyle Butler/Dexter case.
Do you recall when Dexter imprisoned Sgt. Doakes ?
Harry asking Dex:
“What’s your plan here? Nurse her back to health so she can go to the police? If she gives the cops enough to track you down then everything falls apart. Harrison grows up visiting you on death row.”
