Probably the weakest episode of the series.

It just seemed like a filler episode and a way to get Dexter and the killer to interact.

Dexter at least has a reason to kill Paul now.

I thought it was a great episode... how is it filler when we learn Harry was lying to Dexter all along? We see how much Deb can flip out for hardly any reason. How can she blame Dex for wanting to know the truth? It doesn't mean he has forgotten everything Harry did for him...hell, Harry is the reason Dexter is still alive and not in prison....

so is the cold one Dr. Ice Truck Killer and Dexter share gonna be Deb?

i wonder how the ITK found out about Dexter in the first place... maybe the hospital nurse he took out? Though that has to be 12 years ago or so.

yeah exactly...there is so much more to unravel...I cannot wait.

plus, I wanna see more episode with "BN" or "N" in the ratings disclaimer. this one certainly didn't have it...although Deb artfully displayed on ITK's bed was pretty hot.

Face it ... Deb or Rita ain't stripping for this show Our only hope for full-blown "N" is Sgt Doakes and/or Batista going to nudie-bars or prostitutes.

I thought this was a good ep. I didn't see it as filler when you got: ITK and Dex getting together, escapades with ashes, reveal of Dexter's past about his real father, reveal of a grand scheme for Dex by ITK with the murder of the biological father, Paul going over the edge (and getting set-up for intervention by Dex), side-plot involving police coverups and Haitian death-squads ... and a little old lady presumably getting offed by ITK in the end. Next week looks to be more explosive. I just hope there's a satisfying wrap-up to the ITK storyline in the works, and this isn't something they're just going to drag out forever.

Rudy is doing what Dexter does to his prey, it's fun as hell to watch. LOL at the first line Rudy said to Dexter: "I've waited a long time to meet you."

I think 95% of the nudity on this show is and will be naked corpses.

I liked this episode. I like how Dex was pushed out of the shower. Its true thinking time in the shower is where a lot of thoughts happen, plus it set up the scar. How many episodes are left? So far Showtimes shows have been medicore, Huff, Weeds, but Dexter I look forward to seeing this show. Three characters from HBO are now on Sho. I wonder if which company they like better. The one thing I dont like about Sho is the ads they put on the screen, even though they seem to be smaller after some of you complained, but also they way they do their previews of the next show. They give away so much, I try not to watch them. On HBO they mix the events up so much that you never know what happens.

Amen about the dislike for the onscreen ads. This is a premium channel ... there's no place for that crap here. Especially annoying is their pimping of "Sleeper Cell: American Terror". Did you know it's coming December 10? I sure do ... because they scroll it onscreen about 3 times an hour for the last month.

Look more closely at last week's episode.

Nothing much to say - great episode, great show. Continued greatness all around. Solidly locked in as my favorite new show of the season.

Wonder if the ITK is going to be a season long story thread or if there's going to be a resolution in the next couple of weeks.

EDIT: Oh, nevermind. Just saw squidget post that the season is only 12 episodes long, so I guess there probably will be a resolution in the next couple of weeks.

Let me rephrase then ... strip and actually show you something beyond a "PG-13" level. And I'm not talking about a flash of something you need to freeze-frame the screen to even catch either

Anyone else think the ITK is going to end up being Dexter's long lost brother?

Yes I also think so...How did he know where Dexter's father lived? He does he know Dexter so well? Yep, I think they are brothers...
I absolutely LOVE the show and I personally think Showtime is kicking HBO's ASS! The hell with the Soprano's, I'll take Brotherhood, Dexter and Sleeper Cell anyday!

Anyone notice how the ITK was putting the string around the records when they were packing up the house. I'm thinking dexter might notice one day that the knots on the records and the barbie dolls are the same?
