Review - Dexter Season 5 Episode 1 My Bad

To preface this review, I'm not a huge fan of Dexter. I haven't been genuinely impressed with the show since the second season. I liked Trinity, Dexter, and the final twist last season, but rest of the show is terrible at times. And even the big twists don't get much out of me. Lots of people love Dexter; I'm not one of them.

"My Bad" delivers on Rita's death with surprising gumption. There's no outside serial killers (by now, Miami must be oversaturated with them), no outside force driving the story. It's all about Dexter and how he deals with her death in a very dark episode. At one point, Dexter decides to run, and for a moment, I really thought this would be the season where everything blows up. But no, Dexter returns to once again continue hiding his true self.

Looking forward, Dexter doesn't have the typical serial killer hunt to carry the season. Will the writers be able to use Dexter effectively for the entire season?

Score: 9.3/10
