Storyline

It is now 38 days since Dexter saved his sister and executed the Ice Truck Killer. Since that time however, Sgt. Doakes has spent all of his free time following Dexter sure in his belief that something about him is wrong. Dexter very much wants to kill someone and when the opportunity finally arrives, finds that he is unable to follow through. His sister Debra, apparently recovered from her ordeal, returns to work but Lt. Laguerta isn't so sure. Rita is happy with her relationship with Dexter, but her husband keeps pressuring her to help him with his defense. The police discover Dexter's burial ground. Written by garykmcd

All of Dexter's strengths are demonstrated while new dynamics are added
10 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is probably the best episode yet of Dexter.

It's been 38 days since Dexter's last kill and he is in desperate need for a fix. Sgt. Doakes has been watching him like a hawk, so he has had to try blend in even more than before. How better to blend in than to join a bowling team with Angel! The opening narration mirroring the pilot episode was hilarious as the reality behind it was revealed.

Everything I love about Dexter was in this episode. The show took a different turn and many new dynamics were added to the mix. All of the characters stories are introduced and begin to take shape in this episode, with Dexter dealing with quite a number of conflicts in this episode alone.
