;D I'm so laughing at you both. I was joking about Lila just to tease you, Lena :D I wouldn't want him to hook up with her either, she was destructive.

About dane comments.

Yes, the kids wouldn't blame him but he will suffer the rest of his life beacuse he knows, indirectly, her death was his fault. Sooner or later, Rita and the kids would be target of his lifestyle (remember that female cop, Zoey, that went after him in his own house after he uncovered her secret?)

The main reason I don't like Rita is upset me seeing Dexter trapped in a boring relationship, with a woman that he not even loved. Yes, I never thought he loved her. He used her. He had to marry someone, he needed become "a family man", he knew that was important to keep him out of suspicions, just as Trinity did.

Rita was the one "handy" and as himself explained in the beginning of the series, as messed up as him. I am reading the book and at some point he says to himself "I like those kids more than I like Rita".

Of course as time passed, he developed feelings for her but was still a untrustful and lame relationship.

again i do not agree, Dexter loved Rita, yes her situation was handy, but first, he loved her for who she was and so he really cared for her, and he loved her more and more and that without fully realising it, i think this is where you mix things up, Dexter evolves slowly.

Also, theyre relation wasnt lame, Dexter didnt find it lame, Rita was respecting him the way he was, and he was respecting her.

yes they married fast, and he realised that he married her because he really loved her, he became a husband and he trully was happy about all this, he realised that he evolved with Rita and that was the best thing that could have happened to him.

In the end of the serie, he also said that he didnt want this dark passenger side of him anymore, and that he really wanted to be with them, his family.

im out  :D ;)

If Dexter had run away with Lila (as he deluded her saying he would), he would be living happily ever after. Now he has a little baby who saw his mother die in front of him and two more "adopted" ones who may blame him for their mother's death :P

oh my god Aline !! i sooo dont agree with

If Dexter would have stayed with Lila, it would have been real crazy...

there's no way Dexter would have stayed with her, she really was crazy, do you remember what she did to her ex ??

i completly agree with dane.

Aline, i think that you are missing the part where Lila was really crazy, and yes Dex also have problems, but both of them together couldnt have been possible.

Aline, i do not agree with you, but know that i respect your opinion  ;)

I do not believe that Rita was too good, she just was herself and i believe she was alright.

women falls far all kinds of men for so many reasons, some ppls say that women seeks theyre father in men, i didnt really made my mind about this, but i think that this fact could be possible.

About Lila, i agree with dane that to have stayed with her would have made him worse, ppls that already have problems like the kind of problems Lila had would have affected him more and more with time.

I believe that Dexter liked Lila mostly because he tought that she could *see* him(for him it was a relief), while she really didnt, and the sex is something else, if Dexter wouldnt have slowly become closer to Rita, the situation would have been different.

About the marriage, Rita knew Dexter, she knew a side a him like everyone knows there partners, we do not know them at 100% and never will, so yes she knew him, to say that she didnt know him at all doesnt make sense to me.

You said that she accepted his strange behaviors ? she loved him, and like for many many ppls, they tried to work things out with compromises, also like that often, chances are given and sometimes it works, and other times it doesnt.

Dexter also really loved Rita, we were able to really see it more and more as the serie got closer to its end. He kept realising more and more how she and the kids were important to him, that he really loved them, that he really wanted this, and thats not something that ever could have happened between him and Lila.

youre right Aline, this conversation could go on forever lol, but knowing that we respect each others opinion is great so  O0 :)

Despite Lila being able to "see" him, she (or any woman like him) would probably have appealed to the worst in him.
Rita, with her ordinary lifestyle had slowly begun to rell him into a more ordinary life, a life where Dexter's dark side had to be even more checked.
You could see that when she came and picked him up after he was arrested, where he felt ashamed of what he had done, and was afraid to look in her eyes. I doubt he would have felt the same thing back in episode 1.
Rita might have seemed bland, but she knew when to make a stand. The second she thought that Dexter was a drug addict back in episode 2 she completely changed character, stepped up and forced him to go into rehab, but she also immediately confessed when the neighbour had tried to seduce her because she more than anything felt that the trust between her and Dexter had been broken.
In conclusion Rita was a ordinary woman who had managed to find a strenght and determination within herself during her secure relationship with Dexter, and whenever that strenght and determination was called for, she brought it to bear.

She was always too whiner. After they married they hadn't a single night alone together, their relationship was too bland, with no passion. I always thought the right woman for him should be someone like Lila >:D

we cannot blame Rita's attitude, first she had a tragic past, second, Dexter wasnt there most of the time, and he was always hiding things from her(thats normal because of Dex's other side, so it normal that most of the times it couldnt work at 100%), so her attitude and reactions were normal.

my opinion is that Rita was the best thing for Dexter, even he realised it.

"...and the user name on it is Slice of Life..", thats good lol  O0

Aline, why dont you like Rita ?? she's really nice, she's a good person, i really wonder why you dont like her.

If it would be because she was complaining to Dexter, she was right you know...

What is "x2", Lena? After all our comments this is all you have to say? ??? :)

it means that i agree with the person's comment

x2 = 2 times

him, and then me, we are 2 that agree, then if there's a 3rd person, he/she could write x3

I've half considered grabbing the books from time to time, but I really don't want to spoil the joy of watching the tv series by knowing how it might all end...
I don't know if Season 4 is going to be the last one. As far as I know there are only 3 dexter books, and season 4 was written along with Jeff Lindsay, so I reckon that if the fourth season ends on a high note, anything is possible...
