The Bay Harbor Butcher secures his nefarious spot among the great television anti-heroes in a taut second season that is both painfully suspenseful and darkly hilarious.

Audience Reviews for Dexter: Season 2

  • Aug 04, 2021
    [⭐️95%] Dexter's second season continues forth with what it had established in its first season, but elevates those elements to new heights whilst also putting the titular character in unfamiliar territory. New characters help in making Dexter's life more difficult, Lila on a more person level and Frank Lundy on a more professional way. Sgt. James Doakes continues to act as that person looking over Dexter, making for a difference approach to a large amount of this season, which with it carries a lot more tension as it isn't as straight forward for our main character. Season two shows that Debra is more than just a character used for season one's advantage but rather gives the viewer the opportunity to learn about her on a deeper level with all of her struggles, making for a fascinating side-character-study. Dexter: Season Two massively improves upon its fantastic first season, making it one of the best seasons of television to this date!

    Just like the first one, season two of Dexter is also a very good season. Two new characters that I really like are introduced in this season, FBI agent Lundy and Lila, who worked for a Narcotics Anonymous Group. Everytime Lila was on screen and she interacted with Dexter, I was glued to the screen. She is a very fun character who gets close to Dexter.

    Dexter's return is nothing short of enthralling.

    Dexter is at it again for season 2! In this season you get to see more of Dexters personal relationships & a love triangle possibly you'll have to watch and see. This season is a lot darker than the last but so much more intense. Wait for the ending, wait for more you won't be able to stop binge watching to find out what happens next! The Bay Harbor Butcher is waiting...

    Once again, another great season. Watching dexter Morgan, played excellently once again by Michael C Hall, fall into a whirlpool of emotions with himself, Lila and Dokes was great to watch. It was also a super suspenseful season, even more so than the first season.

    One of the most exciting and compelling seasons of the series, Season 2 finds Dexter assigned to the biggest serial killer case of his career…his own. Dexter's dumping ground is discovered, leading the Miami PD to call in an FBI profiler to help capture this new unknown serial killer who they call "The Bay Harbor Butcher;" meanwhile Dexter enters into a 12-step program for addiction where he meets Lila, a mysterious woman who seems to see through him and connect with his "Dark Passenger." It's an amazing journey in which the Dexter character is explored exceptionally well. Additionally, the subplots and supporting characters are very tightly written, and do an impressive job at supporting the overall arc of the season. The performances by the cast are also very good, and guest stars Jaime Murray and Keith Carradine bring a lot of charisma to their characters; which adds new and interesting dynamics to the show. Intense and thrilling, Dexter: Season 2 does an excellent job at developing the series into one of the best shows on Showtime.
