Crocodile Tears and Sick Games
20 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Debra locates the refrigerated truck with the frozen finger tips of the last victim of the unknown serial-killer, who continues to play sick games with Dexter, and she is promoted to homicide detective by Captain Tom Matthews. Meanwhile an undercover detective that is infiltrated in the local mafia is found dead. When Sergeant James Doakes and Lt. Maria Laguerta go to his home to tell the news to the widow, they find her lethally wounded by two shots. Dexter interests by a case of an alcoholic driver that killed a teenager from Harvard and is considered not guilty in the court.

"Crocodile" is another great episode of this promising series. The "damaged relationship" of Dexter and Rita Bennett is of a total black humor. Who is the serial-killer is the great question in this moment. Angel Batista might be the unknown killer, who knows? My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Crocodilo" ("Crocodile")
