Goofs

When commenting on the hand found on the beach, Dexter says the cut was made between the first and second row of carpals, but the cut is made through the ulna and the radius. Later, as Dexter studies the hand's computer-image, the two bones are clearly shown at the cut. See more »

Quotes

Dexter Morgan: I love Halloween. The one time of year when everyone wears a mask... not just me. People think it's fun to pretend you're a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending I'm not. Brother, friend, boyfriend - All part of my costume collection. Some people might call me a fraud. Let's see if it will fit. I prefer to think of myself as a master of disguise.

Dark, Twisted, and Great!

The fourth episode in season one of Dexter comes one of the most chilling and twisted episodes yet. Things get deeper in regards to the Ice Truck Killer and more personal as well. I think that is what makes this episode more fascinating. I liked how we get more glimpses or flashbacks into the childhood of Dexter's and we can see what his life was like growing up. I liked how they incorporated all of that into this very interesting episode.

This episode, "Let's Give the Boy a Hand", has Dexter finding body parts of the Ice Truck Killer's next victim at personal places of Dexter's childhood.

Overall, this is one fascinating episode. I liked the plot and the subplots for this episode. This episode ended with a big bang since the final ten minutes were very good and it has a pretty neat, unexpected twist. I really enjoyed this episode on the whole. I rate this episode 9/10.
