Storyline

After the dead body of another of victim of the so-called "Ice Truck Killer" is found on the ice rink at Miami's Hockey Dome, Dexter helps out Debra, newly transfered to the homicide squad to investigate when Lt. Laguerta, ambitious for a promotion and the media spotlight, decides to have the department pursue a security guard whom they believe is the Ice Truck Killer. Meanwhile, Rita receives an unpleasant visit from her imprisoned ex-husband's drug dealer who confiscates her car, leading Dexter to drive her to and from her hotel receptionist job, while at the same time, Dexter zeros in on his next victim, a recently paroled teenage murderer who harbors some dark secrets of his own. Dexter also flashes back to committing his first killing: a nurse who he suspected was poisoning his terminally sick stepfather. Elsewhere, Sgt. Doakes continues to hound the drug kingpin Carlos Guerrero, but gets in over his head when a group of dirty cops decide to take matters involving Guerrero into ... Written by Anonymous

Enticing!
14 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The third episode of season 1, "Popping Cherry" has less action, but more character development which is always good. We see Dexter from his humble beginnings as he commits his first kill, whom was a nurse who he believed was poisoning his foster father. I was fascinated by this scene and I was wondering the first few episodes if we were going to see this.

This episode has Dexter going after a teenage murderer who was paroled, his sister Debra believes that "The Ice Truck Killer" is not the person they are going for, Rita has her car stolen by her ex-husband's criminal associate, and Sgt. Doakes is going after a drugpin the hard way.

Overall, this is an excellent episode with some very interesting moments. I liked how we learn more about Dexter. The action may have ceased, but not my level of interest. I rate this episode 9/10.
