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

Quotes

Dexter Morgan: It's strange to have a creation out there. A deeply mutated version of yourself, running loose and screwing everything up. I wonder if this is how parents feel.
