    They do that sometimes, though...e.g., Harrison's original nanny who used to be one of the leads on The Tudors. Relatively high-profile actor in a relatively high-screen time role, yet the character never amounted to anything.

    One thing I have to give them credit for is that they don't always subscribe to Ebert's Conservation of Characters rule.

    Yes. They certainly fooled me with the nanny. I thought she was going to be important for just those reasons.

    When I saw Julian Sands as Hannah's husband I thought he would be an important character but he was gone pretty quick.

    I just "Shazam"-ed it with my iPhone. It was "Make Your Own Kind of Music", sung by Mama Cass.

    I was distracted by Zach's corpse still breathing just before Dexter spun the chair around. If the actor portraying Zach had half a mind*, he'd know to hold his breath when the director calls "Action!".


    * (pun intended) :cool:

    That reminds me, what ever happened to the previous nanny? She is still alive, right?

    Maybe she is the Brain Surgeon! :p

    (for the smiley impaired, that one means I am not serious)

    Hmm...some interesting stuff. Musaka? Is that Vince Masuka?

    LMAO @ old nanny being brain surgeon. good one! :) Like others here, I kept thing that she would have some relevance. She was just too strange not to.

    I think I'm going to watch again, after having read this thread. I didn't catch the actor breathing while dead. I also didn't catch the relative weirdness of JoeyQuinn asking about Zach DNA on girl. very interesting.

    I remember when Quinn first came on, thinking that something weird (but differently weird than how he's been so far) would come up about him. It would be kind of cool if he were something other than who we know him to be or, I don't know - something.

    Also, from the teaser for next week's episode -
    It looked like Deb and Quinn were having a moment. Don't know if that means anything and don't even know if I care, but I cannot help but wonder if they will end up together - that is assuming that Deb doesn't end up dead in the end, which I think she will.

    My money is on Cassie's boyfriend. He clearly saw the kid (the encounter was even shown in the recap) and yet he didn't identify him when showed the mugshot by Quinn. Is it really plausible that he would forget the encounter? Sees the kid with dexter, his girlfriend is murdered a couple days later, and the he conveniently forgets?

    I think he was following dexter and purposely met, dated, and stalked Cassie to stay close to dexter.

    I'll be disappointed if he turns out to be some random person we haven't met yet.

    My only other suspect is deb's boss, just because i haven't figured out what his angle is in the series yet. Possibly spinoff with deb, maybe?

    I don't think it's Quinn. He wouldn't murder an innocent person, frame, yes, but murder no.

    Mine too at this point. They are trying way too hard to make it look like Vogel. Perhaps they will reveal a link between those two in the next episode.

    I was thinking the same thing at first. But then I wondered what his connection to Vogel could be. Because the Brain Surgeon clearly has some connection with Vogel.

    I agree with both of you. I'm thinking it is the boyfriend AND I think he has some ties with Vogel.

    Does anybody remember how Cassie and him met during that conversation between Dexter and the nanny?
