Dexter Season 5 Episode 7: Circle Us S05E07

Dexter season 5 episode 7 called “Circle Us” which was directed by John Dahl and written by Scott Buck aired this evening on Showtime.

The fifth season has been thus far has been advancing very slow, but this week’s episode assured us that things are about to turn around and that the plot will be moving at a faster past from now on – in all fronts.

In “Circle Us” the predictable happened – Dexter and Lumen have become partners in crime and went hunting for the men who raped her.The duo now have one target -Cole Harmon who is Jordan’s chief of security but to effectively do his job Dexter throws them off the trail by kindly guiding the police to Boyd’s existence.

Debra & Quinn:
Quinn is trying to continue with his investigation on Dexter with the help of agent Stan Liddy, but things are getting complicated because Deb is beginning to have feelings for him- and he has confessed to being attracted her also.

The ‘Santa Muerte’ murders:
Deb set up a stakeout to catch the Fuentes brothers who are the prime suspect for the ‘Santa Muerte’ murders despite the boss’s opposition who sees it as a waste of time and money.
The operation failed ending with a dramatic shootout at the club that was infiltrated by agents.

Here is a brief recap of the episode:

By aiding Lumen, Dexter puts himself on a collision course with Debra and the homicide division, and things get worse when he’s brought in to work a horrific crime scene; and Debra’s investigation into the Santa Muerte killings leads her into a deadly confrontation with the killers. Meanwhile, Quinn begins to question his accomplice in his investigation of Dexter.

Overall it was a pretty solid episode where Dexter who is wrapped in serious problems because of Lumen may have found a friend, lover and even mother for his kids in this broken woman. The highlight of the episode is undoubtedly the revelation that Cole, Jordan, Boyd, Dan the Dentist have known one other since they were kids.
