Storyline

Having lied to Rita to cover up what he really did to her late husband, Dexter now finds himself attending Narcotics Anonymous classes. He finds the exercise quite difficult and is afraid everyone will see through him. Rita however makes it quite clear that their relationship is entirely dependent on his continued participation in NA. She doesn't react too well though when she sees Dexter's sponsor, the very attractive Lila. Sgt. Doakes follows Dexter to an NA meeting, but surprises him with his reaction. Meanwhile, Debra is assigned to the joint task force with the FBI but is having difficulty dealing with the people and the desperation to find their loved ones. She does however uncover a pattern to the murders. Dexter identifies a serial killer and decides he has to take action, despite the scrutiny of the police and the FBI. Written by garykmcd

Another darkly humorous installment in this excellent series
21 July 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"An Inconvenient Lie" is another first class episode of this excellent drama series. Rich with black-as-night humour, this installment introduces new elements while satisfactorily tying up others.

The beautiful Jaime ("Hustle") Murray makes her first appearance as the sexy and mysterious Lila, a lady who has trouble written all over her.

Michael C. Hall is always on top form and it's great to see his character returning to his old ways. It's a difficult task making a serial killer a sympathetic character but "Dexter" always has you rooting for him. There's a genuine sense of tension with this episode as the net starts to tighten on Dexter as his victims are all reclaimed from their deep resting place in the sea.

9 out of 10. One of the best drama series on the television today.
