With the spoiler-questions below answered we know that contrary to speculation, Professor Gellar (Edward James Olmos) is indeed quite real--human (unlike the character he was being compared to, Dexter's ghostly dad). He is therefore susceptible to death--perhaps taking Quinn's bullet after "Quinn (Desmond Harrington) gets a little too close' in this episode.
Dexter Epsode 5 'The Angel Of Death' SPOILER:
From this week's DEXTER buzz we learn that a season 6 new-cast member is being offed!
The reason I have no trouble believing this is that when EJO was cast it was NOT for the entire season and since he's been in every episode of season 6 and we are going into episode # five...
With the help of his new-found friend Brother Sam, Dexter wonders if there is light within him to counter the darkness, while the search for the Doomsday Killers takes him in a new direction; Batista and Quinn pay a visit to the university where Professor Gellar taught; due to departmental regulations following the shooting, Debra is forced to begin therapy.
Q: Is Edward James Olmos' Professor Gellar on Dexter real?
A: He's real, all right—just ask that guy whose body parts took a pony ride through Miami traffic.
Never fear: Lt. Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) and her team are closing in on the Doomsday Killer—and while Quinn (Desmond Harrington) gets a little too close to the naughty professor, Dexter (Michael C. Hall) targets his creepy protégé, Travis (Colin Hanks).

Q: Is Dexter moving kind of slowly this season?
A: (Maybe but) things start cooking in a big way over the next two episodes.
"You know how the show usually kills off the guest stars at the end of the season? Well, one of this season's new characters will meet his or her maker much sooner than that."

Q: Who’s getting the ax on this week’s Dexter? '
A: I can tell you it’s someone who was new to the cast this season — and it’s not under the blade of an ax. Not enough? Let me narrow it down a bit more. For now, I can tell you Harrison’s new babysitter stays out of death’s crosshairs, but too bad she finds herself on the receiving end of Deb’s wrath during a screaming match! Personally, I’d rather tango with death than Deb’s temper.
Next on Episode 5 'Blide Spot' of Homeland, Brody confronts his sole surviving captor and torturer:
Should be interesting to see what reaction the 'reunion' of Brody (Damian Lewis - above in a sneak peek still) and his former captor elicits for Brody. The guy is still very much an enigma, IMO.
Carrie meets with Brody so he can identify one of his captors.Q: Homeland?
Sunday’s uber-intense new episode, which centers around Brody (Damian Lewis) confronting the lone surviving insurgent that held him, will lead to a blow-up between Saul (MandyPatinkin) and Carrie (Claire Danes). And on a less crucial note, Morena Baccarin’s Jessica will also debut a new, shorter ‘do.
