One thing is clear as we get ready for Dexter: New Blood Season 1, Episode 6 on Showtime next weekend: there's trouble.

For the first time this season, Dexter Morgan has to be concerned about his true identity being revealed in Iron Lake.


Episode 5 Recap

We've reached the halfway point in Dexter: New Blood and Dexter Morgan/Jim Lindsay's small-town hideout is about to get a lot smaller.

Sheriff Angela Bishop's itchy curiosity is piqued by the reappearance of a familiar name from his past, Lieutenant Angel Batista (David Zayas), and she now wants to investigate just who the hell Jim Lindsay is, and why he's a dead ringer for the photo accompanying an obituary she pulls up for a man named Dexter Morgan.

Episode 6 Expectations

Too Many Tuna Sandwiches is the title of Episode 6, but we have a feeling that's the least of his worries.

Things are moving at a breakneck pace, especially now that Angela understands her role. The puzzle pieces have started to fall into place, thanks to Audrey's surprising appearance and then a revelation she made during the party. She's realized Jim Lindsay isn't who he claims to be, but what will she do about it?

The most important thing to remember is that just because Jim lies about his alter ego doesn't mean he's a serial killer. She doesn't know anything about it, but she should be curious about why he's kept some of his secrets hidden for so long. Dexter will be confronted with a line of questioning that could prove to be extremely dangerous.

And is this the episode in which Dexter figures out what Kurt Caldwell is really up to? We're starting to get the impression that this is the case. At this point, he's clearly the season's Big Bad, and there are several reasons why his son Matt ended up the way he did.

At the end of tonight's new episode, we saw the character running away from Dexter and instead, running towards Kurt. This could be a character who accepts at least part of who he is on some level. There could be a dangerous attraction to him, and we already know that Clancy Brown's character is a Dark Passenger in his own right.

We’ll find out next week at the same time on Showtime.
