Storyline

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.

Trivia

Looking at Tucci's blood on the gurney, Masuka suggests that they photograph it. In response, Dexter jokingly calls him Jackson Pollock. Jackson Pollock was an American abstract expressionist artist who used drips and dashes to paint his canvases - and a site where a bloody murder has been committed will also feature drips and dashes, as Dexter knows.

Goofs

Nina complains that the coyote has not yet brought her fiancé. The term coyote is very out of place in Miami, particularly since illegal immigration does not come across the ocean by way of these illegal smugglers from Mexico. On the whole, Mexicans are very small minority among Hispanics in South Florida. See more »

Quotes

Officer Gerard: Look, buddy. I know you want to help out your maid. But there ain't a hell of a lot you can do.
Dexter Morgan: [thinks to himself] You'd be surprised.

A Boring, Average and Normal Life
8 June 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter enjoys isolation and recalls his adolescence when he went to the junior high school prom with his neighbor following his stepfather's advice. Rita tells him about the disappearance of Ernesto, the fiancé of her colleague Yelina that has been threatened by the coyote that has helped him in the illegal immigration to marry Yelina. Dexter stalks Jorge Castillo, who owns a junkyard, to investigate whether he is guilt or not. Meanwhile, Sergeant Doakes and Debra interrogate the traumatized security guard Tony Tucci and Debra tries an unconventional approach to get information from Tucci, under the disapproval of Doakes. Dexter finds that Angel is separated of his wife and realizes that normal people may also have secrets and dreams.

In this great episode, Dexter discovers the secret dream of Rita of having a boring, average and normal life after killing ambitious human traffickers. Debra successfully uses a different method of interrogation achieving great results in the investigation of the Ice Truck Killer and rewards Tony Tucci accordingly. My vote is nine.
