Goofs

When Dexter's browsing the reports about Matt Chambers' past DUI infringements, the last page shows the title of an article in South Boston Daily claiming "Matt Rasmussen of South Boston Arrested" though the rest of the article is about Matt Brewster - a name used in Albuquerque. The article is identical to the previous one in Albuquerque Times Standard except for the first couple of words. See more »

Quotes

Dexter Morgan: My father taught me one thing above all others; to be sure. And I am. Matt Chambers, Miami is your last stop. If God is in the details and if I believed in God, he's in this room with me. I just wish he had brought an extension cord.

Crocodile Tears and Sick Games
20 February 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – 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")
