Dexter finally finds a connection between him and the Ice Truck Killer over a past case involving Harry Morgan and a bloodbath crime scene back in 1973 involving Dexter's biological mother. Meanwhile, Lt. Maria Laguerta braces herself for dramatic changes in the department when the officious Captain Matthews maliciously makes her the scapegoat for the department's failure in the case to find the Ice Truck Killer, and he has her replaced. Rudy and Debra spend some quality time together in which he proposes marriage to the smitten detective. With Angel in the hospital recovering from the stabbing, his estranged wife pays a visit, while Rita decides to take her children, Astor ... Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: I've never had much use for the concept of Hell, but if Hell exists, I'm in it. The same images running through my head, over and over.
[He remembers horrific images]
Dexter Morgan: I was there. I saw my mother's death. A buried memory, forgotten all these years. They climbed inside me that day. And it's been with me ever since. My dark passenger.

Just Fantastic!
4 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The eleventh episode in this the first season of Dexter is just wonderful, very intense, and has keeps-you-on-end-of-your-seat pacing. Just as I have predicted, big things happened here and the episode ended with me biting on my nails eagerly awaiting the season finale. But as usual, there is no shortage of clever writing or witty, darkly-humored acting. The only thing I didn't like is how the episode had to end.

In this episode, "Truth Be Told," Sgt. Doakes begins to become a little suspicious of Dexter. Rudy and Debra are about to take their relationship to the next level. Rita takes her kids to visit Paul in jail. Lt. LaGuerta is demoted by Captain Matthews over the handling of Ice Truck Killer Case.

Overall, this is one hell-raising episode. The way this episode ended kind of makes me fearful of what happens next, especially the way Dexter was feeling by the end. But whatever happens, I'll be eagerly waiting. This is a great, powerful episode. I rate this episode 10/10.
