The synopsis reads, “Dexter reunion with his long-lost son, Harrison, takes a side road when an unforeseen case of a missing person turns into a crime scene and Dexter’s cabin becomes home base for the search and rescue. Will Dexter’s reunion with his son be cut short?”
Dexter: New Blood Episode 2 Review Contains Mild Spoilers
In the first episode, we saw Dexter killing for the first time after a decade’s sabbatical. At the same time, his son Harrison (Jack Alcott) visits him for answers. The episode ends with blood marks on the snow, indicating how Dexter isn’t as sharp with killing and clearing up the mess as he did 10 years ago.
In Dexter: New Blood Episode 2, Harrison asks his father why he abandoned his family. We find out that Hannah is dead, and Harry has moved from one foster house to another. The foster homes weren’t a pleasant experience for Harry, and hence he decided to look out for his father.
Unfortunately, trouble knocks on Jim/Dexter’s house as his cop girlfriend Angela (Julia Jones) and her team decide to set up the search camp near his house. While it’s brave of him to date a cop, he also has the advantage of messing up with the evidence. Dexter doesn’t want his son to know the real him, doesn’t want to mess him up and doesn’t want to get caught.
‘Storm of F*ck’ are the troubles that have entered Dexter’s life one after the other. Even though he’s happy to see his son, deep down, he’s worried about the truth coming out. On the other hand, Harrison’s heartbreak is visible because of how his father disowned him. But there were also a few scenes that tease that he might also have a dark side? We will find out soon. Jennifer Carpenter’s Debra’s ghost leaves no chance to mock her brother Dexter. She reminds him how pathetic he is.
We also find a terrifying secret about Iron Lake. In today’s episode, we learn that there have been cases of indigenous girls missing from the town. The girl whose name is mentioned twice is Iris. In between, we see the girl Angela met at the pub being locked in a hotel room. Someone is watching her through the cameras. It’s a creepy scenario and looks like another big kill for Dexter in Dexter: New Blood.
The star performer of today’s episode for me is Jack Alcott. Jack makes us feel empathised for what he’s been through and also makes us suspicious. Julia Jones, as Angela Bishop, is a super-smart cop, and Dexter might have to look out for himself. Michael C Hall, as a terrified killer/father, plays his part well too.
Dexter: New Blood Episode 2 Review: Final Thoughts
Overall, after a bit slow but interesting start with episode 1, Dexter: New Blood Episode 2 has teased us with intriguing plots. Today’s episode was about answers and cover-ups. But it ends with bringing more stress for our serial killer. Dexter has a lot to handle right now. Considering how he didn’t do a perfect job with Matt’s kill, I wonder how he will handle what’s coming next.
