Dexter begins to have second thoughts about Lila's suitability as an NA sponsor and Rita encourages him to find someone else, preferably male. While the investigation into the Bay Harbor Butcher continues, Dexter hears that his forensic colleague Vince may have come up with a way to identify where the killer moored his boat. Dexter's attempt to destroy the evidence doesn't quite go as planned. Debra finally hooks up with the man she has been ogling at her gym. Dexter meets Rita's mom who is in town visiting. She tells Rita that there is no doubt in her mind that Dexter is hiding something. Written by garykmcd

Another Engaging Episode!
14 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fourth episode in the second season of Dexter and it's fantastic and about as engaging as ever. We really feel the tension mount and Dexter's insecurity rise as Agent Lundy and his team attempt to track down the Bay Harbor Butcher but of course whoever watches this show truly knows the identity of this Butcher. But that being said, this is a great episode with respectable story lines.

In this episode, "See-Through," Dexter begins to feel the pressure as Lundy is on his tail and Dexter desperately tries to destroy the evidence. He also believes Lila is not worth his time and Rita happens to agree. Her mother comes to town and believes Dexter is hiding something. Debra starts dating this guy who she met at the gym. LaGuerta is placed back in charge of Homicide after a meltdown by Pascal.

Overall, this is another great episode in one of the greatest crime shows of all time. Each episode keeps on getting more interesting and I'm rather curious to see if Dexter is going to change or still going to be this dark passenger. I rate this episode 9/10.
