Dexter | "This Little Piggy" | 2013-07-28

Well, the Yates arc ended quickly.

Also, when they first showed the wealthy son, I thought he looked an awful lot like Dexter...even walked like him (in the opening credits) with his hands in pockets.

Yes, I thought Yates would be a season-long arc.

Question, how would they have "cleaned-up" the scene with a wrought iron curtain rod puncturing the bed's mattress and box spring, and probably the floor beneath Yates?

I had to pull my wife down from the ceiling when Yates broke into Vogel's apartment via the window.

That was quite an idea the writers came up with there! LOL!

As far as clean up, wasn't it Vogel's place? She just needs to replace her bed and window and not report it to anyone.

Then again, if she was fearing for her life due to psychopathic clients, she might have considered installing an alarm system ... but I must suspend my disbelief (and logical thinking) in order to continue to enjoy this show. And I do enjoy "Dexter".

Wasn't Vogel's place, but one of Yates' customers house. They found it through the unrealistic cell phone trace.

My thought as well. You don't just "clean up" a hole through someone's mattress and a big blood stain on their carpet.

Also, Dexter is lucky he didn't hit any support bracing that was holding up the mattress. Curtain rods are not usually all that sturdy, and if he had hit a crossbar, he might have broken the curtain rod before he hit Yates.

If she's receiving packages at her door from a killer and has reason to fear for her life, maybe it's not a good idea to sit in a bay window in plain sight of everyone outside, with your back to the window so you can't even see if anyone is walking past the window.

Maybe if a serial killer knows where you live and is likely to try to kill you, you should move to a safe house.

There was one very clear reason why I knew that Yates wouldn't be around long. He wasn't being played by a name actor.

Yates was a killer, but was he THE killer? He killed women, and buried them. It's not his style to kill someone, especially male, and leave them to be found with a piece of their brain missing.

It was a hardwood floor. I'll pretend the rod hit his sternum and never touched the floor, and then they went to an IKEA midnight sale for a quick replacement mattress.

Thought it unusual that Dexter threw Yate's complete body overboard. Doesn't he usually chop the bodies up into several garbage bags?

I see your point. They never discussed the killings with Yates and he never mentioned anything about them. Yates could have just been upset that Dexter was in his house on Vogel's behalf.

This is the first time that I remember him not cutting up a body for disposal. But since he didn't have time to set up his usual kill room, and he had Vogel and Deb there with him, he must have decided to just dispose of Yate's body in one piece.

Also, Deb has so far this season just barely been holding it together, the sight of Dexter dismembering a body would probably send her over the edge and have her trying to confess again.

She didn't see him walking past the window in the background?

The only thing that led Dexter and Vogel to think Yates was the Brain Surgeon was the diagram of the skull cut in his notes, but that could just as easily be because he was investigating his own surgery. Given how it doesn't fit his M.O. otherwise (plus her surprise at learning Vogel had someone working with her, after the Brain Surgeon was already leaving his and hers gifts), they're being very cavalier to assume Yates is the Brain Surgeon.

(You guys are all long past this I know, but I'm only just now watching the season. The wife wanted to wait until we were close enough to the end of the season to not have to wait for it, so we just started day before yesterday, and we figure the last eps will have aired just about when we get to them.)
