waking into a dream journal 12.13.07

this morning's not so much a continuation of my nightmares through the week
dexter // episode 2.11 "Left Turn Ahead"
cinema 4 rating: 7

been having a series of nightmares through the week, none of which have anything to do with this show -- one involved a very good friend of mine taking an ax to somebody on a city bus, gore flying all about and covering everybody, while several of my other friends and myself sit around ignoring what is going on -- do i secretly suspect this friend may have killed someone, or is that too direct an interpretation? -- certainly has to be -- it couldn't be otherwise, but where would i get this image into my head? -- as a result, reluctant to watch this penultimate episode of one of my current favorite series -- at least, reluctant to watch it at night for fear of having it influence me too much come bedtime -- figured i should work this out on my own -- been watching dexter on monday mornings before work anyway since i dvr it late sunday night anyway -- then the nightmares began -- fact is, upon watching this, it's one of the least violence-laden episodes of the show, concentrating instead on a lot of character development which all goes toward setting up the finale this sunday -- jennifer carpenter, who bothered me tremendously in the first season as both she and her character, dexter's sister, found their way, has grown into the role, and even in her whinier moments, i find her entertaining -- keith carradine has been a terrific add to this season, and i am hoping he sticks around in some capacity, which will be tough since he is there on an fbi gig to find dexter -- last saw him on deadwood, where he also didn't stick around long enough, but then he was playing wild bill hickok -- is that jonathan banks? -- entertainment weekly took apart the show for making dexter far too nervy this season, but i totally disagreed, believing that in order to show him at his best, you have to get him back on his heels for a while -- which they have done up until now -- still, absolutely nothing ever goes as planned on this show, and i hope that carries through into the finale -- oops! watched too much of next week's trailer -- all season long, they have not shown next week attractions until two weeks ago; haven't watched one for fear of knowing too much going in and having my senses twisted in the process -- and now i have done exactly that -- must forget what i have seen, must forget, must... what was i going on about? as long as it doesn't come out in my rem sleep, i probably won't remember until it pops up in the finale...

Oooh, was _I_ the friend who went axe-happy on the bus??

I've only seen the first 4 episodes of Dexter and am reserving opinion.
