Dexter Recap: “The Angel of Death”

Warning: Spoilers

Travis’ identity is no longer a secret – to Dexter, at least. After spotting him in the crowd at the murder scene last week and discovering a specific type of adhesive on the angel wings left on the victim, Dexter was able to figure out where Travis works. He works as an art restorer at a local museum, and Dexter was able to find his name on the museum’s website. Dexter looked Travis up and saw that he has no criminal history and not so much as a speeding ticket to his name. But, after searching his apartment, he discovered that Travis is definitely the Doomsday Killer.

The Mentalist Recap: “Where in the World is Carmine O’Brien?”

This week we finally got a look into the personal life of Lisbon by meeting one of her brothers, Tommy, and his teenage daughter, Annie. We could tell how long it had been since Lisbon saw them by the way that she insisted on calling Annie by her full name, Annabeth.

This week’s murder victim was the police chief who was found with three bullet wounds and her abandoned cruiser nearby. They only found one bullet casing and Jane quickly discovered that she hadn’t been the last person to drive her car because the seat was too far back. They found a pool of blood in the trunk and realized she must’ve been shot twice elsewhere, presumed dead and then shot one final time. A uniformed cop who seemed to be close with her helped the CBI with the case. I was a little suspicious of him at first because he seemed a bit too distraught and eager to help.

Castle Recap: “Demons”

Warning: Spoilers

I’m still a little confused as to why the Halloween episode didn’t air on Halloween, especially since it’s a Monday. Nevertheless, it was an entertaining – and sometimes slightly creepy – hour of television.

The team was investigating the murder of a Jack Sinclair, the host of a popular ghost hunting show called Ghost Wranglers. He was in a haunted house in New York filming an episode of his show when he died, and Castle was certain a ghost killed him. This theory skyrocketed when Lanie pointed out the weirdness of the blood spatter – the splatter was all around the body but there should’ve been a clean area where the killer was standing.

Dexter Recap: “A Horse of a Different Color”

Warning: Spoilers!

The murder scene involving horses that has been teased every week this season was finally front and center this week. It looks like Deb hired the transfer detective from Chicago who she interviewed last week because he was at the crime scene and had a good theory about the meaning behind the theatrical set-up. It was a four horsemen of the apocalypse thing, which ultimately led the team to their prime suspect, Professor Gellar. They also found slips of paper both of the victims with numbers on them, supposedly counting down to the end of the world.
