DEX­TER

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

Eleven, Tues­day, 9.30pm ★★★★ It is sea­son five and guess what, Dex­ter Mor­gan’s still mad as a meat axe. Daugh­ter As­tor (Christina Robin­son), strug­gling to cope with the mur­der of her mother, Rita, makes an un­ex­pected re­turn and is suit­ably unim­pressed when she dis­cov­ers a new woman has moved in. Dex­ter, of course, is un­suc­cess­ful in his at­tempt to con­vince her that Lu­men (Ju­lia Stiles) is merely a renter and is not a ‘‘re­place­ment’’ for Rita. Dex­ter’s fa­ther did tell him it was im­pos­si­ble to be a killer and a dad, so it will be in­ter­est­ing to see how Dex­ter ne­go­ti­ates this awk­ward do­mes­tic mo­ment. Dex­ter, mean­while, is hav­ing coun­selling ses­sions with Jor­dan Chase, who is us­ing the teach­ings of Plato to help Dex­ter deal with grief. Chase would have as much suc­cess get­ting through to Dex­ter if he be­gan quot­ing the philoso­phies of Pluto.
