Storyline

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 Anonymous

Goofs

When Dexter is talking about how embarrassed he is about thinking he was dealing with the master and "he lived in a double wide". The trailer shown in the exterior shots is a single wide trailer that looks old enough to have been built before double wides existed; which was sometime in the late 1960s or early 1970s. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: 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.

Dexter: Circle of Friends
29 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The seventh episode of Dexter is another good episode and is on par with the previous episode of tension and wanting more to happen. I liked this episode because many things happen here such as a return of an old character and such. All I can say is that I really liked this episode and the ongoing developments of the Ice Truck Killer.

This episode, "Circle of Friends," has a suspect that is believed to be the Ice Truck Killer being apprehended but Dexter isn't so optimistic if he is actually the killer. Meanwhile, Rita has to deal with her menacing soon-to-be-ex husband who just was let out of prison on parole.

Overall, this is a very good, tense episode. I really liked it because there were many things to pay attention to and you will most likely not get bored. There are a few surprising developments here to keep in mind as well. I rate this episode 9/10.
