Decorated Vietnam hero Frank Vega returns home only to get shunned by society leaving him without a job or his high school sweetheart. It’s not until forty years later when an incident on a commuter bus (where he protects an elderly black man from a pair of skin heads) makes him a local hero where he’s suddenly celebrated once again. But his good fortune suddenly turns for the worse when his best friend Klondike is murdered and the police aren’t doing anything about it. – IMDB

So Season 6 of DEXTER has ended and the heady euphoria I felt with the the awesomeness of the first episode of the season (Harry was back! Dexter went to his high school reunion! Dexter did the MC Hammer dance!) quickly came back to earth when the show began to make misstep after misstep. It was such an insufferable season to watch because at times the show got things almost perfect and then almost as quickly things would take a turn in a totally head scratching direction. It was a very schizophrenic season and some of the decisions have left me wondering if I should even bother with the show next season.
