Player Affinity writes: "After almost ten months off our screens, Dexter returned on Sunday with “Those Kinds of Things,” an episode that just about perfectly set up the season ahead, while remaining thoroughly funny and dramatic throughout. Taking place around a year after the events of last season’s finale “The Big One,” the episode picks up with Dexter in high spirits, with basically everything in his life going right for once. Admittedly his wife is still dead and his next love Lumen is gone, but things really are on the up for everyone’s favorite serial killer. Although I knew the time jump was going to happen, I was pleased to see that it was well executed. It would have been easy to have season six come back just a few months or even weeks after season five and have Dexter be depressed and kill-crazy, but instead, the writers took a leap with all of the characters and it worked very well."
