"Dexter" Dex, Lies, and Videotape (TV Episode 2007) - Plot Summary Poster

(TV Series)


Plot Summary

  • 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.

  • Thanks to an old reel of audio tape, Dexter learns more than he wanted to about his foster father and his biological mother. In fact, the more he learns about his foster father, the more he loses his old self - and becoming a different person is awkward and painful. The new Dexter finds himself in an unexpected love triangle with Rita and Lila. He also confronts a pale imitation of himself: the Bay Harbor Butcher now has a copycat, and Dexter must stop him or, as Agent Lundy promises, the FBI will be taking over the Butcher case completely. Meanwhile, Debra is jealous when Agent Lundy seems to be preferring Dexter to her, just as her father once did. Maria tries to convince Doakes to stop harassing Dexter.
