Storyline

Dexter, sent to investigate a blood soaked crime scene, is gripped by a suppressed memory of childhood trauma. Meanwhile, Rita is charged with assaulting Paul and could lose the children in a custody battle. When Dexter finds out, he decides to take action to remove Paul from his and Rita's lives, but his solution is only temporary. Debra has a falling out with Rudy because he is spending more time bonding with Dexter than with her. Debra is still too naive and neurotic to see Rudy for the person he really is. During an evening out with the rowdy coroner Vince Masuka, Angel spots a local prostitute with a prosthetic hand whose fingernail polish resembles one of the Ice Truck Killer victims. Angel's hunch about a possible connection leads him back to Rudy. Lt. Laguerta's feud with her superior, Captain Matthews, intensifies over their handling of the Ice Truck Killer case. Matthews is more concerned about bad publicity than in uncovering and following all the clues in the case. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Rita is meeting with her lawyer after being criminally charged. The lawyer mentions that Rita has a "deposition" in two days and urges her not to give him any more "ammunition." It is usually the defense that arranges depositions of witnesses as they are entitled to all the evidence possessed by the prosecution. A defendant would never be subjected to a deposition as they have the right to remain silent and cannot be compelled to provide evidence against themselves. See more »

Fixing One Problem
4 July 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter receives a jar with blood with the keys of room 103 of the Marina View Hotel inside. When Debra and Sergeant Doakes arrive in the crime scene, they get impressed with the bloodshed and calls back-up and forensics. Dexter recalls suppressed memories from his childhood and is incapable of staying in the room while Rudy uses Debra to get close to Dexter. Meanwhile Paul presses charge against Rita for being assaulted and she is summoned to the precinct first and later to court. Due to the risk of Rita losing the custody of the children to Paul, Dexter gets emotionally evolved and fixes the problem. When Angel finds a possible lead to the Ice Truck Killer with a prostitute, he consults Rudy about cases of acrotomophilia, i.e., people attracted to persons with an amputation. Lt. Laguerta faces Captain Matthews and tells the truth about the Ice Truck Killer to the press.

In this great episode, Dexter recalls a traumatic experience from his childhood when he lost his mother and certainly the motive for his dysfunctional behavior. Debra is completely blinded by her crush on Rudy and Dexter and she are giving ammunition for the next steps of the Ice Killer Truck. Dexter resolves the problem of Rita but exposes himself to Paul. Angel gets close to the Ice Truck Killer and lets see if he will survive to the attack. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Banhado em Sangue" ("Bathed on Blood")
