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.

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

Trivia

Dexter refers to finding the body within the hockey arena as "a real miracle on ice." Miracle on Ice is the nickname given to the 1980 Olympic hockey game between the United States and the Soviet Union. Team USSR was heavily favored to win but Team USA pulled off the astonishing victory and eventually went on to win the gold medal. See more »

Goofs

The scene set on Calle Ocho is plainly not there. There is no Mexican music nor Mexican stores ("Guadalupe") on Eighth Street. Moreover, the Mexican accents are completely out of place. See more »

Quotes

Rita Bennett: [the family are working in the garden] Thank you for doing this, Dexter. I moved here from Michigan with dreams of fruit trees in my garden.
Cody Bennett: But they keep dying.
Rita Bennett: I can't help it, I kill things.
Dexter Morgan: That must be awful. Fortunately, I have a green thumb. The key to happy citrus is a fertilizer. Bone meal works the best.

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.
