    Awesome episode. Really, I was afraid they'd drop off in the second season but they're starting just as strong if not stronger. I anticipate a lot of laughing at Dexter going through his 12 step program, that's for sure.

    So how many people has he actually dumped there I wonder? He seems to have quite a lot more than 15 slides.

    Dexter is going to have to steal more evidence, shoot up until he's addicted, then check into rehab it seems. Which means inevitably he will try to kill someone while high. Can't wait!

    This show makes serial killing so fun looking. If my poker skillz go south maybe I will give it a try. :)

    Another great episode. I'm glad Dexter appears to be getting his mojo back: it would have been a little tiresome to have an extended number of "why can't I kill?" episodes.

    There was one scene, right near the end of the first episode, where the camera pans over the underwater bags. I didn't freeze-frame and count, but it looked to be dozens. If you look closely you could see that there were many bags, and then a lower shelf (maybe about 50 feet lower or so) with still more bags. If I had to guess, I'd say 30-50 all told.

    So when the Special Agent was briefing them on the "at first we thought it was one body - but it is two," was that a reference to a specific episode last season where we saw him dispose of two bodies in one bag? I couldn't recall anything like that, except maybe the husband/wife illegal alien smugglers, but as I recall their bodies were subsequently recovered.

    Rita is wicked hot and all, but the whole dinner table scene where he comes clean on his addiction was confusing. Was she pissed at the thought he might have framed Paul (and contributed greatly to his death), but was all cool with it once he admitted to it and simultaneously admitted to having a problem she could fix?

    And, oh yeah, Rita is hot so I forgive her. ;)

    I thought the same thing. Maybe they are just taking a long time to put the pieces together, because it seems like they took days to just get to 15 or so.

    I think the scene with Rita just showed that Rita really likes people with problems...

    Loving the season so far, I was really looking forward to see Dexter catch up with Little Chino, it was very satisfying.

    That was basically how I interpretted that scene too. All her reservations went out the window the moment she realized she had a new project.

    i took it to mean that he did put 2 in 1 and was impressed that the SA figured that out. not sure if that was part of a prior episode, but could be :)

    Ah, of course - that makes perfect sense. I had just been assuming one bag per person (or in some cases, two people per bag). I bet you are absolutely right. And when they showed him dumping Little Chino, there were multiple bags. It would also explain why it was taking them time to confirm the number of bodies found - it's not just a matter of counting the bags - it's a matter of (literally) putting the pieces back together. (Even so, they should be able to get a quick approximation by counting heads, I would think).

    Why would Dex dump the bodies in such shallow waters? I thought I heard either the two initial divers, or a news report, saying they were in ~65 fsw. Is that correct?

    The problem with 15 bodies, as I mentioned, is that he seems to have many more than 15 slides, does he not? Maybe someone can pause on that scene and count them :)

    I also thought his slide box was more full last season during his inspections vs this one.

    He may not have had the same dumping ground when he was just a rookie.

    He wasn't dumping in shallow water... he was dumping on a HUGE dropoff with a very great depth.

    Apparently during the drop, some floated close to the ledge rather then fall... why he would dump right on the edge of it, rather then well over it... is a mystery.

    Didn't he dump everything last season when he thought he was caught ? Including the slides?

    He was about to dump the slides, then he saw the smiley face and realized the ITK was playing with/testing him.
