Dexter A Little Reflection Review. Dexter: Season 8, Episode 6: A Little Reflection showed that the Showtime TV series was still capable of surprising even the most jaded and ardent fan. Episode 1 of season 8 housed a tepid revelation. This episode contained two surprises, one worthy of the series, and one that proved its perpetrator had gumption and was inexplicably stupid.

As a TV critic, there is a constant battle between revealing too much about a TV show episode within the context of a TV show review (a no-no since this is not a recap) and diving into the meat of what happened in the episode and exploring all of the narrative avenues that might blossom from those events.

The former will be the nature of this review.

Regarding the first surprise, this is pure speculation but Dr. Evelyn Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) might be Master Mold incarnate. She already showed how treacherous she could be by taking deleted notes on Dexter and studying Dexter without his knowledge or consent. Why is she taking and keeping such detailed notes? For a book? The good doctor has had multiple agenda items up her sleeve all along, the greatest of which showed itself in this episode i.e. creation.

I have to say that I never saw this coming and I can usually see plot twists coming from a mile away. In this case I am glad that I did not. Knowing that it was going to happen would have ruined its surprise. The pivotal scene where Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) made his decision was completely believable (in the context of what Dr. Vogel suggested beforehand and what was said during the scene).
