Dexter New Blood Episode 8 Has a Big Plot Hole, Fans React

Dexter New Blood Episode 8 ‘Unfair Game’ has changed the entire dynamics of the series. Starring Michael C Hall, Jack Alcott, Julia Jones, Clancy Brown and Jennifer Carpenter, there are only 2 more episodes left for the series to end. The ninth season is receiving great responses from critics and fans so far. But viewers have found a big plot hole in the latest episode. If you are yet to watch it, you should skip this.

In Dexter: New Blood Episode 8, Angela continues her research about Dexter Morgan. After talking to drugs dealer Miles, Angela visits the morgue to inspect dead drugs dealer Jasper’s body. She finds the same needle mark she saw on Miles’ neck. The doctor informs her that it’s Ketamine. Later, she reads about the Bay Harbour Butcher of Miami, who used Ketamine to knock out his victims.

The episode hints that Angela is getting closer to discovering that Jim/Dexter is a serial killer and the Bay Harbour Butcher. It is ketamine that makes her connect these dots. While it seems such an easy blow of Dexter’s cover, fans have pointed out the big mistake made by the writers. Many fans believe that Dexter Morgan didn’t use Ketamine but M99, aka Etorphine, to make them unconscious.

If you’re a big fan of the show, even you know that Dexter indeed used Etorphine to immobilise his victims. In Dexter Season 1 Episode ‘Return to Sender’, it is revealed that Dexter uses M99 and buys the same under the fake name of Dr Patrick Bateman. He even deletes the proof by hacking into Masuka’s computer.

A Twitter user shared, “The series will end because the producers want to make the final immediately. I was very sorry. also, dexter was using m99 not ketamine. Why are you in such a hurry for the finale? I am angry with the channel and the producers. #DexterNewBlood #Showtime”.

Another wrote, “How can the writers be so idiotic to link Dex with ketamine to BHB? He used M99, Not same thing!! Just scrap whole dang thing if you going to ruin it all. Lazy writers. #DexterNewBlood”.

  1. Disappointing they didn’t keep small details in place. The ketamine “connection” to BHB ruins their attempt to rekindle this series. Loved dexter, was loving the new series but very disappointed they can’t keep up with the small stuff.
