Where can a serial killer feel safe? While that isn't a question I would normally ask, seeing as serial killers such as Dexter have proven themselves capable of handling any surprises that come their way, the question arises tonight. Out comes Dexter's more sensitive side, or you could say, his human side. And who would have thought that Hannah, a fellow serial killer, would bring it out. She is kidnapped by Isaac, looking to extract a favor out of Dexter before either of them wins their deadly battle.

Deb pops the big question tonight. Dexter, will you ... murder your girlfriend for me? Okay, so Deb doesn't actually ask Dexter to do it. Nor does she know that Dexter is lying in bed next to a very naked Hannah at the time. But she does imply that it is up to Dexter to have justice prevail. To be fair, Hannah did just kill Deb's sort-of boyfriend Price and there is no evidence of it so she will be free on the streets. But just earlier tonight, Deb told Dexter that he couldn't kill Isaac, who was being released from jail after it was discovered that the blood evidence in the case against him went missing.

“Are you a serial killer?” Well, I'm glad I've never been asked that. Not sure how I would respond ... do veggies count? But how would you feel if you walked into your apartment only to find your sister waiting for you with evidence of your serial killer behavior? Luckily for Dexter, he can't feel. Unluckily for him, Deb has forgotten her intense romantic feelings from last season. After Season 6 ending with Dexter's sister, Deb, discovering that Dexter killed the Dooms Day Killer, it is only fitting that at the end of the premiere she uncovers the rest of his grisly crimes.

I was not downtown during the recent disturbances, but I will take Del. Pat McDonough's word that the groups of young thugs were, in fact, black ("Baltimore and bigotry," May 18). Here is the point I want to make: The fact that they were black had nothing to do with their despicable behavior. In recent coverage of the meth lab bust, did anyone refer to the accused as a group of white drug peddlers? How about Oklahoma City bombers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, or serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, did their "whiteness" have something to do with their behavior?

After yet another summer of TV busts, our staff chimes in about what fall shows they are looking forward to. .... “Boardwalk Empire” for Scorsese and “Glee” for Santana. Luke Broadwater, reporter, The Baltimore Sun .... “Dexter.” It's more than a show about a vigilante serial killer - it's about the outsider in all of us. Michael C. Hall is outstanding as Dexter, but I love seeing the growth of his sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter). Anne Tallent, editor, b .... “Community.” It's the freshest, most inventive comedy on TV, and not nearly enough people watch it. If it goes to a premature grave a la “Arrested Development,” I'll be really pissed.

Regarding your story about animal cruelty ("City man is charged with killing one cat and abusing another," Aug. 4), I'm an animal lover who had my 22-year-old cat euthanized three months ago and I'm still crying from the loss. I got her from an animal shelter when she was about six weeks old and she showed signs of abuse. It broke my heart to think that someone would harm a little kitten. I'm against places like PetSmart and other stores that sell pets. Even though they ask customers to complete an application before buying a pet, it's nothing like the background check a rescue organization requires.
