    Once again, you ruined the plot. You did this two times. I think I’m going to stop visiting this site. You ruined Ugly Betty, too. Kind of glad that I don’t watch that show religiously, but DEXTER. YOU RUINED DEXTER! Not everybody lives in the US, idiot!

    Maybe a spoiler alert next time for people who haven’t seen it. I love the show and looking forwards to seeing how the TV show storyline is going to different than the book. Really would of liked them to of stayed closer to the book than do something total different.

    @kez: There’s no reason for a sister in law to be a ‘mystery’ relationship.

    and making her a fellow killer is just repeating Lila

    So my vote is that she’s a new neighbor who offers to help with the kids, in a neighborly way. nothing suspect really.
    but it turns out she’s an undercover cop. Cause they couldn’t prove Dex killed his wife (remember they don’t the whole story on Trinity and Dex has no ability for that night) but they really really believe he did it. So she’s trying to get some proof.

    @Morgan: I was so upset when it was confirmed that Julie Benz would no longer be apart of the show. I was so shocked when watching the season 4 finale. It really won’t be the same without Julie. I originally decided that I was not going to watch the show anymore, but when I heard of Julia joining I was very excited. Maybe she will stay on for more episodes in the future?
