Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Lt. Maria LaGuerta (as Lauren Velez)


Dexter sees an advantage when the police determine that there is a copycat killer on the loose. The bad news is that unless they can locate and stop him, the FBI will take over the Bay Harbor Butcher case completely. He also learns that he was videotaped cleaning his boat at the marina. Since learning that his mother was actually a police informant working for his stepfather, Dexter has been questioning his step-dad's motivation in taking him in. Rita's scheming mother suggests that Dexter's NA sponsor, Lila come to dinner. It all goes well but when Rita later learns that Lila accompanied Dexter on his recent road trip, she announces she never wants to see him again. Dexter and Lila find a new way to relieve Dexter's compulsive urges. Written by garykmcd

The New Dexter
15 August 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter is disturbed with the discovery that his mother and Harry had an affair. When a copycat of the Bay Harbor Killer attacks a former criminal, Agent Lundy promises that the FBI would assume the case if Miami Metro is not able to discover the vigilante. Further, Dexter is informed that there are security cameras in the Coral Cove Marina but the computer system needs an upgrade to watch the footages. Now Dexter needs to find a way to destroy the tape and find the vigilante to avoid the presence of the FBI in the investigation. Meanwhile the poisonous Gail invites Lila and Dexter to have dinner with Rita and her. When Rita discovers that Lila and Dexter had traveled and spent the night together, she breaks up with Dexter and throws him to the arms of Lila. Dexter presents formal charges against Doakes that is stalking him to Lieutenant Maria Laguerta. In the end, the new Dexter fixes all his problems.

"Dex, Lies and Videotape" is another great show of Dexter. Along the story, Dexter is pressed by uncomfortable situations while having an existential crisis, but Lila helps him to resolve the problems and he "makes her understand him" in a very sexy and erotic scene. The insecure Debra finds that Agent Lundy really likes her work. My vote is eight.
