Modern America’s increased fascination with crime dramas can be attributed to the majority’s desire to see good triumph over evil. The hunting, processing, and eventual punishment of evil evokes feelings of satisfaction in viewers, as justice is one of the moral principles ingrained in our society. In popular media, law enforcement is oftentimes presented as being insufficient in upholding justice, calling for the intervention of a hero; a figure capable of recognizing and punishing evil without the restrictions of the law. The television show Dexter portrays the glorification of the anti-hero through the romanticizing of vigilante-style justice and the mind of a psychopath.

I shit on it.” But the reality was that deep down she was lying to herself. Nevertheless, she missed all of that -- the smells of lamb pörkölt (stewed and flavored with paprika) and stuffed cabbage. And just to have one more taste of sweetened porridge and rice, or those butter-creamed flaky tortes that had once graced her lips, at weddings. She certainly had never learned to cook well enough to prepare those things, with her mother passing away before teaching Ava to cook. There hadn’t been time to learn what village women taught their daughters. Not when her mother had been wracked with pain and worry.

In the passage it states “He now made himself very agreeable, of course, he asked in his most insinuating manner for something to eat….”Poor lady, you must be starving,” he said. “Well, well, I suppose I shall have to ask to have something with me then.” that tells me that they are both starving and longing for something to eat, but since they are in the woods they have nothing to eat. In the middle of the passage they got the man got the nail out of his pocket and dropped it into the pot to make a broth. In the passage it states “Then he took a 4-inch nail from his pocket, turned it three times in his hand, and put it into the pot.” that tells me that they got an item that they could use to make the food.

Dexter Morgan (early 30 's) is a blood spatter analyst for Miami Metro police department (His younger sister Debra is a detective in the department) but he has a secret. He murders people in his free time. He sticks to a strict code that was taught to him by his foster father who knew that Dexter would be a killer since he was a child.

Dexter is able to murder two males in the episode and in both circumstances he shows a lack of remorse and guilt. His reason for the killings is because the men have done horrendous deeds in society and in his opinion they deserve to die. What is interesting about Dexter here is that he has no feelings while he slaughters the men. Dexter is once again, able to keep calm, slice the body parts and likely enjoys doing it.
