DISC 4-   THE GETAWAY/ photo gallery/ SHOWTIME bonus episodes

DEXTER season four starts with Dexter trying to deal with married life.   His life is soon complicated by the appearance of the Trinity killer which retired FBI agent Lundy (an old adversary) has been tracking.   Trinity starts with a murder in a bathtub followed by an apparent suicide, and then a bludgeoning.  Trinity has been doing this for years from city to city.   Dexter finds who Trinity is, but he hesitates and learns about Trinity (in addition to becoming part of Trinity’s seemingly perfect life as family man).   Dexter wonders if he can balance family life, his job at Miami-Dade Homicide, and his “Dark Passenger”.   Meanwhile his adopted sister Deb (a homicide detective) starts digging into their dad’s past and she finds out something about Dexter’s past.  

 

DEXTER season 4 keeps going strong from the previous seasons.   John Lithgow is scary as Trinity.   You see Dexter become more complex with his emotions as he tries to fit in since he has a son and step children.   His decisions this season will have repercussions into next season.   Dexter makes mistakes this season which means he is human as the people he works with.   Everyone that Dexter works with make mistakes that pay off with consequences during this season.   Sometimes even delaying your choices have their consequences.   I love how season 4 flowed and I can’t wait to see what the writers will do with season 5.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Bonus episodes of SHOWTIME series- CALIFORNICATION Season 3 episodes 1 & 2, LOCK ‘N LOAD episode 1, THE TUDORS Season 4 episode 1

 

I wish Showtime would include audio commentaries and interviews on the sets.  The (once again) links to interviews on the internet is very lame.  The only actual related to the show extra is a photo gallery.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  DEXTER season 4 shows everyone including Dexter makes mistakes and they pay for those choices they make.   I can’t wait to see how this continues to play out in season 5.  Hopefully, the next set will have actually extras (besides a photo gallery) that relate to the show besides bonus episodes for other Showtime shows.
