The fourth episode of the ninth season of Dexter follows a familiar pattern: Dexter is a private investigator who specializes in forensic cases. After a local tries to sell him a high-end hunting rifle, his routine is thrown off. A mysterious “Dark Passenger” resurfaces. Dexter must use his investigative skills to locate the killer and save Matt Caldwell’s life.
Dexter’s routine is shattered by a local’s push to sell him a high-end hunting rifle
Despite his desire to hunt, Dexter finds that his routine is disturbed by the murder of his wife and daughter. He is terrified that his family is in danger and doesn’t want to lose them. Although he says he’d never hurt his family, he has a hard time concealing his life as a killer. Moreover, his relationship with Rita and Astor is also strained due to his secret life. Both of them have been encouraged to go into couples therapy.
Meanwhile, a local pushes Dexter to buy a high-end hunting rifle to satisfy his need for a new hunting weapon. This push comes as a shock and causes Dexter’s routine to be disturbed. This is the first murder that he commits in months and it is unintentionally a flashback.
When Dexter is confronted by his son, he realizes that his motivations for saving his son’s life have always been selfish. He’s always wanted to be a hero and a good person, but his motivations had always been self-centered. Harrison, however, seems proud of his father’s efforts.
A local tries to sell Dexter a high-end hunting rifle, but it is not easy for him to resist. The local’s push is accompanied by a Christmas song. It turns the scene into a Christmas special. As he moves the body to the kitchen, Deb taunts him, and the moonlight shines through the vent fan behind him.
The opening monologue is reminiscent of the original series, with the music from Daniel Licht and the Miami setting providing a nostalgic touch to the series’ first season. The show also introduces an interesting new character to the franchise – a dick head son of a local money man. Dexter is still Dexter Morgan despite the new alias.
In the next episode, Dexter and Harrison investigate a local who has been attempting to sell a high-end hunting rifle to Harrison. Harrison is uneasy about handling the weapon, but after Dexter gives him some pointers, he is able to take down his target. Harrison also brings up Kurt, so he asks if Dexter went after him. Dexter confirms his suspicions and uses this opportunity to tell Harrison the truth about his relationship with Kurt.
Dexter’s “Dark Passenger” resurfaces
In Dexter’s Season 9 premiere, “The Passenger,” Dexter is introduced with a rifle in hand and a recording of Iggy Pop’s “The Passenger” playing in the background. He then goes on to shoot a white buck, but is unable to pull the trigger. Debra is an encouragement to Dexter. She also tells him that the serial killer Oliver Saxon is like an addiction.
The mysterious killer stalks a man named Mitchell. Dexter assumes the alias Kyle Butler and intrudes into his personal life, while trying to figure out the right balance between being a family man and a serial killer. In the process, he thwarts police efforts to catch him. He also saves Mitchell’s life when he attempts suicide. In the end, he learns that Mitchell is a tyrant who abuses his family. As a result, he believes that he can silence the “Dark Passenger” permanently.
Despite this, Dexter is still plagued by his lifelong murderous urges. Even though he lives in a remote house and works as Jim Lindsay at the local hunting store, he still has to deal with the “Dark Passenger,” his deviant, or “dark personality.” The Dark Passenger relates to the biblical god Moloch, whose children were sacrificed to him as an act of worship. Although he ultimately killed most of them, some escaped into the world and became part of the human race.
While Dexter’s recurring storybeats will feel familiar, there are several new twists and surprises in “New Blood” that should make viewers more comfortable with the show’s main character. For example, this episode introduces a side story about a local kidnapper. That’s a weird one to start a season with. However, this new Dexter will hopefully be able to erase the bad taste of the original series.
Dexter’s “Dark Passender” resurfaces in season 9 episode 4. It’s a mysterious criminal who resurfaces to threaten Dexter’s family. This killer targets Dexter’s family and friends, and the entire team must work to catch him before he kills another innocent person.
Harrison’s innate hugging urges
The season finale of Dexter season 9 episode 4 “H is For Hero” answers many questions from the previous season, and sets up Dexter and Harrison’s relationship. The series picks up almost a decade after the original series’ events. It follows the exploits of serial killer Jim Lindsay, who lives under the alias Jim Lindsay and has been working in the fictional town of Iron Lake, New York.
Harrison has a history of impulsive hugging. While he’s never acted on this urge, he has a tendency to do so on a whim. He’s also prone to violence. During the school shooting in “H Is For Hero,” Dexter discovers that Harrison was involved in an incident that may have prevented the shooting. Harrison’s actions have made him a hero in the town. Meanwhile, Angela digs deeper into the missing person’s case.
Harrison is the son of the Dark Passenger and inherited his father’s dark tendencies. He developed his urge to kill after his mother Rita died and was traumatized by the blood. He’s now manifesting those tendencies on others.
At one point during the episode, Audrey tells Harrison about her mother being a police chief’s daughter. Audrey responds half-jokingly by stating that she checks on her mother every ten minutes. Harrison then compares Audrey to his stepmom and his dad.
In Dexter season 9 episode 4, Harrison will begin to become a famous celebrity in town. He will also take a stand against a bully in school. His story is going to make Dexter’s life complicated. Angela, meanwhile, will continue to investigate the disappearance of Matt.
The season opener of Dexter season 9 episode 4 introduces the Dark Passenger. He is a serial killer who kills a mother. However, the episode also introduces the Dark Passenger, which manifests itself as the killer’s innate urge to hug a woman.
Dexter’s arrest for Matt Caldwell’s death
The season nine premiere of Dexter: New Blood ends with Dexter’s arrest for Matt Cal-dwell’s death. Dexter has been on the run for the last few seasons, but his arrest in this episode is a huge shock. The episode also reveals that Dexter may be the Bay Harbor Butcher and a police investigation is about to begin.
Angela confronts Dexter about his involvement in the killing of Matt Caldwell, who had been the victim of a serial killer. Angela believes Dexter killed Matt Caldwell, but Angela is unsure whether her boyfriend is guilty. Dexter is determined to prove her wrong, and he takes her to see a psychiatrist to find the truth.
When Dexter’s arrest for Matt Cal-dwell’s death occurs, Angela is furious. She realizes that she was making a mistake by accusing Dexter of murder. Dexter, meanwhile, is still trying to regain his trust, but is having a difficult time with his partner. Despite this, fans are still angry with the decision, and it’s clear that this episode was meant to make a statement about Dexter’s motives for killing Matt Caldwell.
After Matt Caldwell’s death, Dexter and Harrison plan to move to Los Angeles. Dexter wants to make a new start, but Harrison isn’t so convinced. They are both scared of what the future holds for them, and it’s not easy to make a new life.
Ultimately, Dexter’s arrest for Matt Cal-dwell’s murder is a major turning point for the show. In this episode, Dexter and Harrison are left with a traumatic secret to deal with. The two will have to deal with this secret in the upcoming episodes.
The last 10-15 minutes of this episode feel disconnected from the rest of the story. The scene between Harrison and Dexter is intense, but the ending seems out of place. Although the two were fighting, the death of Harrison doesn’t fit the character. Dexter has been killing people in his past, and Harrison was a classmate. It was a sudden change for him and the show, and the episode’s ending didn’t feel right.
The episode also highlights Dexter’s numerous victims who are innocent, and forces Dexter to deal with his guilt. The ending of season nine: New Blood highlights the fact that Dexter’s crimes have long-lasting effects on the lives of innocent people. Dexter will now have to make an important decision about his future.
