Storyline

Using the GPS she stole from Dexter's car, Lila makes her way to the cabin where Dexter has Doakes locked up. Doakes tells Lila that Dexter is the Bay Harbor Butcher, but if he was hoping for a sympathetic ear, he won't get it from Lila; she still views Dexter as her "soul mate". Frank and Debra decide to go on an ice fishing holiday, but work gets in the way. Dexter and Rita reconcile, but when Lila threatens the children, Dexter decides he needs a permanent solution to that problem. Lila isn't quite ready to move on quietly. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

At the beginning of the episode, Dexter and Deb are discussing whether to report for duty. However, from the count of bottles on the table, they have consumed too much alcohol to be considered fit for duty, especially on such a high-profile and dangerous case. See more »

Dex monologue: Your going away with me alright - in a garbage bag.
22 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Lila kills Doakes, which solves Dex's problem. Not happy to see Doakes go, such a great character.

Dex is in quite a predicament at Lilah's place with Deb there, Lila could tell Deb he's the butcher, seeing his killing tool bag and not luggage on the floor. I mean she doesn't really have anything to lose there, it would be safer.

Love the taxi scene with Deb as she receives a call from Rita about the kids being taken. Taxi Driver: Honey could you make up your mind. Deb: Why do I have to make up my mind. Cab driver looks puzzled :)

Pretty somber ending. We see Doakes' funeral, no-one attends. His life's work and friendships are destroyed and his family has to live with it. You also even feel a little sorry for Lila, she only wanted Dex.
