Paranoid and Feeling Under Siege
9 August 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After three weeks of Agent Lundy's investigation of the Bay Harbor Butcher, Dexter is feeling paranoid and visits his N.A. sponsor Lila seeking support. The jealous and nervous Rita questions whether Lilia would be the suitable sponsor for Dexter and suggests him to break up with Lila while preparing her home for the visit of her estranged mother. Meanwhile, the housewife Alicia Barnes is executed with three shots by her husband Curtis and Sergeant Doakes recognizes him from the Special Operations. Masuka finds diatoms of eukaryotic algae in the corpse and invites marine biologists to help to locate the marina where the killer might have moored his boat and Dexter tries to destroy the evidences sabotaging the refrigerator. Pascal has a meltdown in the precinct and Captain Matthews reassigns the Machiavellian Maria back in charge of homicide. Agent Lundy suggests Debra to have a social appointment. Doakes goes to the Blue Wing Marina to meet Curtis Barnes in the "SS Fubar" and the former military asks him to stall the investigation.

"See-Through" is another engaging episode of Dexter. Now he is paranoid and felling under siege with the whole investigation of the Bay Harbor Butcher. When his attempt to destroy the corpses fails, Dexter feel insecure. It is funny to see the population supporting the vigilante serial-killer when they discover that he has just executed criminals. Rita's mother seems to be another problem to Dexter. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Transparente" ("Transparent")
