Debra and Angel identify the Ice Truck Killer as Neil Perry, a taxidermist with a history of mental illness and violence. After tracking down Perry to a sleazy motel, Debra and Angel arrest him where he gleefully confesses to the crimes. But when Dexter later meets Perry, something about his confession does not sit right with him. Lt. Laguerta sees the arrest of Perry as a way to further advance her political career, but feels betrayed when her superior, Captain Matthews takes the credit. Debra begins to have a meeting of minds with Rudy, the prosthetic manufacturer who works at the hospital, and asks him on a date. Meanwhile, Rita must try to adjust herself when Paul, her violent-tempered and recently paroled husband, shows up and throws his weight around by attempting to be compassionate to their children, Astor and Cody. Also, Dexter tries to cover up his past mistake when Jeremy Downs, one victim who Dexter allowed to escape, is arrested again for a murder charge. Written by

When Batista and Debra were discussing how serial killers were caught Batista said that Timothy McVeigh was caught because he was driving way too fast out of town, which was not the case. McVeigh's car was stopped on I-35 by Oklahoma Highway Patrol officer Charles Hanger because he was not displaying a license plate (he had a bill of sale which meant he was legal). When Officer Hanger approached the vehicle and made contact with McVeigh he noticed a bulge under his jacket and he acknowledged to the officer that he had a weapon. McVeigh was stopped because of the missing license plate, and was arrested because his conceal carry license was not valid in the state of Oklahoma. See more
The F.B.I. estimates that there are less than fifty serial killers active in the United States today. We don't get together at conventions, share trade secrets, or exchange Christmas cards. But sometimes I wonder what it's like for the others. The only sound I hear, the only sound in the entire world, is my heart beating.
