Yes, she does deserve the win. She pointed out that male winners of the game formed alliances that included a couple of girls who'd vote the way they were told, but she couldn't do that. Both Ozzie and Coach did just that. So she allied herself with the dominant male in her tribe and kept a low profile. If she'd been in the other tribe, it would have been Ozzie. She played smart all the way through.

Did anyone watch the season finale of Dexter? That was a "Whew!" episode. Everything is going to change.

Yeah, talk. But I can't even guess what Deb is going to do. Whatever it is, she won't be doing it right away, because they have two more seasons coming up.

I'm wondering if she's going to tell her therapist. Isn't the doctor/patient confidentiality suspended when a life is in danger? But does that apply to something the patient told the doctor or only to the patient herself? Deb's in no danger nor is she a threat to others. Complicated.

What's that, Mike?

Thought I'd posted this...Dexter has always been so careful, picking isolated or deserted spots to carry out his executions. But this time he chooses the very church that's part of the police investigation? And he doesn't lock the door? Necessary for the plot (Deb has to find out) but not consistent with Dexter's M.O. for six seasons.

Deb could have a key, couldn't she, as the officer in charge of the investigation? It's still a bad choice of place.

The therapist told Deb that Dexter was her "safe place" that she turned to; how safe will she feel now? That on top of her facing up to the fact that she's in love with her adopted brother...poor girl, what a lot that is to handle.

When this series first started, Dexter killed only those villainous men that the law didn't punish, either because of a legal technicality or through ignorance of their misdeeds. He was doling out a particularly grim sort of vigilante justice. But now Dexter is killing because he wants to. The police know Travis's name; as long as he stayed in Miami, they'd find him eventually. But Dexter has been in a race with the police, needing to find Travis first when he could have just sat back and let the investigation run its course. Is this deliberate, or is it just careless inconsistency on the part of the writers and producers? I can't tell.

TV Guide published a wish list, and one wish was to forget this current season of Dexter all but the last 20 seconds. I kind of feel that way myself. All that hokey religiosity, and I didn't like seeing Adama and Senator Kinsey so uglified. That wasn't necessary. Even Deb is getting weirder and weirder looking. Dexter's own "exploring" of religion seemed to depend on whoever he last talked to. At first Travis seemed the reluctant pawn of the professor, even rebelling against him. Then poof, the professor's a hallucination and Travis is the true monster, like flipping a switch. Is this supposed to trace the path of madness? I don't believe it. And where did Travis get his acolytes (who ended up dead), especially the woman he sent into the police station wearing the poison gas? Is all you have to do is say "God wants it" and people will do whatever you tell them? There wasn't nearly enough preparation for that. I just didn't like this last year, even Deb's new-found love for Dexter.
