    Rita is annoying I give you that but I don't think I'd be this calm if I'd just discovered that my husband kept his bachelor pad

    I know, that's part of what is really bothering me now about Rita: her reactions to the weird things Dexter does are unrealistic and don't make sense. The way she ignores a lot of huge red flags is not believable. Like when she had to drive Dexter around because of his concussion. Dexter was obviously scrambling, making excuses, even visibly squirming in his seat, trying to get some alone time so he could find his victim's body. Rita's reaction? Gleefully singing along to Karma Chameleon. It's like, hello bitch?!? Anyone with eyes can see he's hiding something and acting suspicious, why aren't you asking questions?

    It feels like she's become a plot device instead of a character.

    Rita's character has been getting pretty annoying lately, and its true her reactions are never realistic

    I don't think she's a plot device , she is still very much living her dream life and is not willing to give that up.

    I may have seen this incorrectly but I think there were a couple of "ewwww" moments... one when Debra pulled down her jammies to show Dexter her wound and then when he took her to the bathroom. It may be just me but isn't that what nurses are for and not brothers? IDK...

    That is my take, too. From S1, we've known that Rita is just as disturbed as Dexter. After years of being beaten and raped by her ex-husband (and enduring that mother), she will ignore anything to keep a man who gives her the facade of Happy Family.

    She really doesn't know what a healthy relationship means. She's irritating because she's working too hard at ignoring the warnings.

    I'm waiting for Rita's inner madness and anger to explode. Expect it when she feels the safest.
    CHILLY FREE!

    Because he identifies with them and he's intrigued by them since they're killers like him. Especially Lithgow who has become a role model for him. Dexter's clearly internally conflicted about being a "monster" and it seems like he thinks if he can figure them out, he can figure himself out. I think on some level Dexter is looking for self-acceptance even if he doesn't know it yet.

    Oh yeah, wasn't Oscar Prado an accident? Dexter killed him more out of self-defense though. He was in Freebo's living room to kill Freebo and Oscar was there too. They were both like "who the fuck are you?" Dexter was just quicker.

    This is the first guy he targeted who he researched and was totally wrong about.

    I agree with what you are saying but I still find it odd the is so obsessed about it and not at least mentioning that he messed up last season too.

    So now I want to know who you guys think killed Lunday. Is Anton too obvious? Oh and Rita is a big ol ho bag.

    From the previews, it looks like the reporter chick Christine(?) may have done it. When they said it was someone Masuka's size I automatically thought of her....She just seems so desperate for a story that maybe she shot someone to make headlines and get that exclusive Deb interview. And of course she could blame it on the Trinity Killer because she just ran that story about Lundy investigating.


    Please let Rita get caught cheating on Dexter!
