Dexter Series 6 Episode 9 "Get Gellar"
Cast: Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, James Remar, C. S. Lee, Desmond Harrington and David ZayasReview - SPOILER ALERT!
Season 6 has just got better and better since episode 6 in a lot of ways. Okay let’s give you a brief summary of the storyline, Dexter and Travis work together to put a stop to Gellar’s killing spree as the Debra and team is getting closer in hunting them down, this probably the best of the season with even smarter twist then other episodes, that’s right the writers have mange to fool you and myself yet again with a shocking discovery.
Well each season has been different dealing with Dexter’s life through Rita, Lumen, Brian etc. it’s always interesting to see the new changeling a head with him, it’s fun to watch every episode and see where it leads because you never know if Dexter’s going to get court….last season it was known if this was going to happened, with Debra being so close at the end. So the theme of Season 6 is Dexter being a “better father” and controlling he’s dark passenger now more than ever, has we saw from episode 8 with brain (The Ice Truck Killer) showing to us the audience what Dexter could really be, that again is shown in this episode with him trying to save Travis soul by killing he’s dark passenger Dexter feels that if he can help Travis find a new life, maybe there’s hope for Dexter to become a better father.
But things don’t work out like we planned, has both Travis and Dexter head to the church to put a stop to Gellar once and for all, Dexter finds him dead in a coffin-sized ice chest with that shocking discovery he realizes that Gellar has been dead for years and Travis has actually been committing all the murders himself, schizophrenically imagining that the professor is doing the killings. Much like the other episodes with Dexter seeing he’s dark passenger and he’s guardian spirit Harry….Travis is seeing he’s own passenger through Gellar. This is the best twist yet of the season and the funny thing is that it makes senses looking back I don’t remember Gellar actually doing any of the murders, being a fan of Dexter now for six years it still shocked me in bringing something new and of course a challenge for Dexter.
Overall this is the best episode yet, still got three episodes left lol so I can’t wait for that, I’ve notice the other characters like Angel and Debra are at the top of their game, it’s nice to have a balance between Dexter and Debra always in enjoy see them with together, very light hearted sometimes (which is a good thing).
Thanks for reading :D
