After one of the Ice Truck Killer victims is found alive, that of security guard Tony Tucci, the rest of the squad begins to make headway. Debra locks horns with Sgt. Doakes who disapproves of her gentile and somewhat naive methods for questioning the traumatized Tucci whereas Debra objects to Doakes cynical and hard-nosed investigation. After learning from Rita about a human trafficker smuggling Cubian immigrants into the country, Dexter decides to stalk the most obvious suspect, auto yard owner Jorge Castillo (aka: The Coyote). But Dexter learns he may be in over his head when he discovers that Castillo's wife is also involved in the illegal activities. Also, Dexter finally learns about Angel's marital problems, while Dexter also recalls more tutoring from his stepfather, Harry, about courting a girl during Dexter's junior high school prom.

Looking at Tucci's blood on the gurney, Masuka suggests that they photograph it. In response, Dexter jokingly calls him Jackson Pollock. Jackson Pollock

On the whole, Mexicans are very small minority among Hispanics in South Florida. See more

I like to pretend I'm alone. Completely alone. Maybe post-apocalypse or plague... Whatever. No-one left to act normal for. No need to hide who I really am. It would be... freeing.

Stop grinning like a fucking psycho and get back to work!
