Dexter: New Blood Episode 6 Review: Discussion
Episode 5 had too many twists and questions, and I wondered how the makers would solve them all. However, in Dexter: New Blood Episode 6, they handled those startling twists quite well. ‘Too Many Tuna Sandwiches’ brings us closer to the real personalities of Harrison and Kurt. So far, we know that Kurt is a serial killer. But Harrison also gives another hint that he’s one too. In a conversation with someone, he says that he wants to hurt people all the time. Harrison also reveals that Ethan isn’t the first person he’s hurt.
Yet again, Dexter has a lot on his platter, and we wonder how things will come together in the end. It’s not at all going to be easy for him. If Harrison is really a serial killer and Kurt ends up being his influence, it’s going to be a double threat on the Iron Lake. I can’t believe how remarkable the writing is! It divides us to say something like a ‘bad’ serial killer and a ‘good’ one. So who’s going to prove fatal to everyone? We have a few more episodes to tell that.
Dexter: New Blood Episode 6 Review: Final Thoughts
Overall, today’s episode had all the elements that made people fall in love with the show. The gripping and pulsating last 20 minutes are my favourite highlights of the episode. I just hope the remaining few are equally good, and the finale will leave us equally astonished.
