Storyline

Dexter investigates when the Ice Truck Killer strikes again, killing the prosthetic arm prostitute and leaving her body before a Christmas tree in Miami's Santa's Cottage. Sgt. Doakes continues to grow more suspicious about Dexter after catching him in a series of lies about his connection to the Ice Truck Killer. 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.

truly intense TV
8 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dexter is quickly becoming a must-see show. In the first season the writers and producers make sure the main plot is never out of focus, even if they deviate from time to time. By the last three or four episodes it's all just on the Ice Truck Killer - and his "other" personality, Rudy. This is the second to last episode of the first season, and it's mostly concerned with plot, but very strong and compelling ones as Dexter keeps looking for clues about the bloodbath and where he actually came from, and Debra is all excited (at first worried-excited then overjoyed) to hear that Rudy "needs to talk" with her about something and that they may go away for a weekend. But it's really all wrapped around the other plots - the stabbing of the officer, the lieutenant's firing, and the general tenor of unease as to the reemergence of the Ice Truck Killer with his "surprise" drop-off of body parts.

It's mostly based around 'when will it happen', as one knows Rudy will reveal himself finally to Debra, a real horrorshow waiting to happen. But it's the anticipation, and Dexter's own quest for the truth, that makes it so suspenseful and dramatic. It's actually one of the best episodes of the first season (not quite as edge-of-your-seat as the finale, but close, certainly in the last few minutes), and you get a sense of the impending tragedy that will befall at least some of the characters.
