Besides that pesky matter of his sister (Jennifer Carpenter) seeing him plunge a sword into the heart of the Doomsday Killer, he’s got to satisfy the urges of his Dark Passenger.
He finds a perfect victim in “Dollhouse” star Enver Gjokaj, whose character does a Very Bad Thing.
So terrible that the Miami Homicide Department will be coping — professionally and psychologically — with the repercussions for some time to come.
And although the whole nasty business infuriates us, we can’t help wishing Gjokaj survived for at least another episode. Why this amazing actor is so overlooked by Hollywood casting directors is a mystery even Dexter Morgan himself can’t explain.
“Dexter” returns Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
