DEXTER: NEW BLOOD is back as creepy and quirky as ever. This week’s episode is all about contemplating whose fault it is when sons do bad things. 

Dexter (Michael C. Hall) is new to his parental role. He wants to believe his son, Harrison (Jack Alcott), about the evil, dark, dangerous attack at school. But Dexter is compelled to look at the red spattering. Blood never lies, and now there is a “kill list.”

Kurt, portrayed by Clancy Brown, also faces a dilemma about what really happened to his son. Is he dealing with what he believes to be true or only what his mind can handle? Either way, he always feels responsible for his son’s actions. 

My favorite part has to be whenever Jennifer Carpenter, as the deceased sister Debra, appears from deep within Dexter’s twisted mind. She is emotional, often hysterical, and always bitterly honest. The two of them battling it out is what drives this series to mind-boggling, sinister heights. My skin just crawls with anticipation of what’s to come. 

DEXTER: NEW BLOOD is just getting started. I truly fear where we are headed, but it is too late to turn back. “We all have two sides to us…monster and hero. Which side wins out?”

It is available to stream on SHOWTIME.
