The Return of Dexter
8 July 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After saving Debra from the Ice Truck Killer, Dexter feels frustrated for not having murdered any criminal for thirty-eight days. Further, Sergeant James Doakes suspects of him and is keeping Dexter under his surveillance. Dexter tries to kill an evil voodooist but his anxiety affects his feelings and he is unable to execute his intended victim. Meanwhile Debra returns to the police station apparently recovered but actually still traumatized with her affair with the serial-killer. Rita is pressed by her imprisoned husband Paul Bennett to seek the shoe he claims that he had lost in her house and he informs that the federal facility is too dangerous for his league. When the dangerous criminal Little Chino is released from the police station since the evidences of his murder would not be accepted by the justice, Dexter sees the chance to recover his old shape. Meanwhile, two treasure hunters find the spot where Dexter dumps the corpses of his victims while searching a galleon in a breach on the bottom of the sea.

"It's Alive!" another great episode of this show with the return of Dexter. The disturbed character demonstrates that is really addicted in killing and the Second Season begins showing Dexter desperate for his long abstinence. His sister Debra is also disturbed with her ordeal with Dexter's brother, the notorious Ice Truck Killer. And the unstable Rita now is affected by the revelation of the happening with Paul in the federal prison. The delicious Julie Benz partially naked is one of the best moments of this show. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Está Vivo!" ("It's Alive!")
