Great ep. Nice to see we have the old Dexter back. Seems like it might have been easier just to continue to lie to the girlfriend, he seems to be good at it when he's doing it to everyone else.

"Actually it's two."
"Uh-oh."

I think I may have peed a little when Dex's brother burst out of the water at the end.

Another excellent episode! I just love the use of music and flashbacks in this series.

Great episode overall. I like were the series is going and can't wait until next week. They're pulling along the bay harbor butcher angle just enough to keep the anxiety high without frustration.

I'm not liking Rita much this season though, I prefer her as the submissive damaged mother with occasional bursts of strength. Hopefully she falls back to that.

I thought Deb looked extra hot in that first gym sequence. Hot damn!

This is looking to be a great season so far. I really LOVE where they are going with the story. Glad they decided to change it up a little bit. This looks like a show that isn't afraid to change direction from season to season, and I like that.

Good episode

Love the way Dexter fucks with Doakes whenever Doakes is following him.

Good episode! Well acted and very suspenseful. I've been reading the 2nd novel (well, listening to the audiobook) this past week and it's a joy to watch the show around the same period. The story isn't similar at all, but it's fascinating all the same.

Man, i get so nervous watching the show. Dexter jumping out in front of Little Chino then almost getting caught. The Bayside Butcher stuff.

I am glad (hopefully) the brother is gone, so Dexter can focus more.

Yeah, I agree... He is always so close and getting closer and I wonder if he is going to start "getting off" on that, as it always seems he wants something to make him feel alive.

The "addiction" angle could be a problem though... I really don't want to see him in a program or meetings...

I love this show though, I had to get Showtime to watch it this year after watching the DVD's.

Why is he always on Dexter's ass? I never really got that.

Doakes knows Dexter is some sort of weirdo, and he may have found out about his past.

The Season 1 finale had a confrontation between Dexter and Doakes where it was made pretty obvious that Dexter knew more about the Ice Truck Killer than he was letting on.

Before that, it was more just Doakes not quite buying the "average guy" persona Dexter had adopted and feeling that something was off about him that he couldn't quite put his finger on.

Finally got around to watching this one. Really good episode! Twice near the end it made me jump a bit with Deb almost walking in on him with the slides and his brother lunging back out of the water.

Not sure how he's going to sell the heroin addiction. I'm hoping Rita's gullible so it doesn't turn into a big distraction and they can just play it for some laughs.

Rita and Dexter's sister are really annoying me.

Old bump I know, but really liked this episode, Totally thought Dexter was done once Rita figured out he set up Paul, but she was okay with it/willing to let it slide because she was into Dexter and Paul was messing with her life, It almost feels like she is willing to look the other way for Dexter.

Great Episode.
