I think this is my favorite Dexter of all. As much as I like the uniqueness of the character and the oddness of cheering for a serial killer devoid of human emotion... this one is about Dexter becoming human, not because he's about to die (which he is, several times) but because he becomes something he never imagined: a father. And as corny as his emotions are as he absorbs them, he becomes more relatable. He is no longer a meticulous killer on the path of the Harry Way, he is a man of vengeance watching the world to save the innocents on his own. I like that!
