A Sick and Dark Game with Dexter's Recollections
3 March 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter secretly recognizes in the arrangement of body parts in a different style left by the Ice Truck Killer that he has studied his pictures with his family in his childhood and adolescence and is playing with his recollections in a sick and dark game rebuilding his past. The body parts are identified and belongs to security guard Tony Tucci; the arrogant Lt. Laguerta tries to comfort Tucci's mother after her accusations to her son in television. Angel tries to find an appropriate gift for his wife while Sergeant Dokes is chased by Guerrero's gang. Meanwhile a barking dog from Rita's next door careless and cynical neighbor is upsetting Rita and her children; near Halloween, she makes a move to resolve the situation.

In "Let's Give the Boy a Hand", the plot evolutes and Dexter's past is disclosed a little more through glimpses of his memories with his stepfather and his family. The human attitude of the arrogant Lt. Laguerta is a plot point in the story. The relationship of Angel with his wife was a great surprise, as well as the surprising rescue of Sgt. Dokes. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Vamos Dar uma Mão ao Menino" ("Let's Give the Boy a Hand")
