Dexter - Episode 8.07 - Dress Code - Review

Dexter: Season 8, Episode 7: Dress Code was the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode of the season: a new subplot was introduced with its own villain, the subplot had a middle where decisions and actions occurred, and then a resolution happened that dispensed with the subplot and the bad guy at its end. There was a Forever Peace-like curve ball within its confines that was unexpected but the remainder was by the numbers and predictable.

The Next Generation subplot also introduced blatant lunacy into the episode: even with new identification, your face and finger prints are still the same (they still show who you really are). Hannah McKay (Yvonne Strahovski) probably is the prettiest killer in Miami’s history. Every cop would know what she looked like and at least her first name. Going back to the city she escaped from under a transparent umbrella of protection was suicidal. State imprisonment for life or lavish servitude? Hannah’s eventual choice showcased her mental ineptitude and her loose grip on reality.

Example: Hannah walked into a swank nightclub, face exposed. Some nightclubs employee off-duty police officers or ex-cops. Nightclubs, especially the high end ones, make sure cops are around to quickly extinguish an incident should one arise. A wanted fugitive walking into a hotspot club is the act of a person who wants to be caught. It was like watching Wile E. Coyote going over a cliff except it was perpetual.

Hannah flippantly showed her face everywhere in Miami again and again. Granted ‘The Machine’ in Person of Interest is not present in Dexter‘s universe but someone, somewhere would (and could) recognize her at some point (her face was all over the news). Her money umbrella could not protect her from basic, ocular recognition. Why was she not afraid of this?

I surmised why.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
