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

Dexter says the mystery blood was "loaded with Coumadin and heparin," and Masuka explains, "One is an anticoagulant, the other is a preservative." Both are anticoagulants. Coumadin is an oral anticoagulant that works with the liver to decrease the clotting factors in a person's blood. Heparin is injected intravenously and is typically used in the short term. The ice truck killer would have had to give Coumadin to his victims for 3-4 days (while keeping them alive) for it to thin their blood but he could have given heparin just minutes before he killed them. As a former medical student Dexter would have known that. See more
The trifecta: weapon, ammo, and impaired judgement. Throw in a little domestic violence, and you have the perfect recipe for a family slaughter.
