Storyline

The police think they have a break in the case when the Bay Harbor Butcher sends a 32 page manifesto to a local newspaper. Only thing is Dexter had a very specific purpose in doing what he did, as the police now go off into every direction imaginable. With Sgt. Doakes having set his sights on him yet again, Dexter realizes that he's going to have to play hardball to protect himself and so takes him head on. Rita comes to the end of her tether with her domineering mother. Lila sells a sculpture for a tidy sum and she and Dexter have a romantic dinner out. When Dexter tells her that he is going to a school event for Rita's son, she takes drastic action to get his attention. Written by garykmcd

Dexter Morgan: [in bed] You really know what you want, don't you?
Lila: I hope you don't mind. Some men do.
Dexter Morgan: No. I've always found instruction manuals... quite useful.
Lila: Okay, your turn. What do you want?
Dexter Morgan: I think that was it.
Lila: Hmm, come on. You must have some dark fantasies, unfulfilled urges.
Dexter Morgan: I'm pretty good at acting on those.
Lila: Really? Then fuck me like that.

Solving a Problem and Divided by Two Women
16 August 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter sends a messy manifesto to the Miami Herald to mislead the investigations of Lundy's team. With Sergeant Doakes on his tail, Dexter plots a Machiavellian scheme to get rid of the hassle. Gail punishes Cody for calling Dexter and Rita takes an attitude sending her back home. Debra dumps Gabriel and shows affection for Agent Lundy. Meanwhile Dexter sentimental life is divided between Lila that supports him in his addiction and Rita and her kids that give sense of family to him. Out of the blue, Lila decides to call the attention to her.

In this episode, Dexter frames the dangerous Doakes and this attitude will probably bring consequences in the next episodes. However the reckless attitude of Lila seems to indicate that the woman will be trouble for him. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Naquela Noite, Uma Floresta Cresceu" ("In That Night, a Forest Grew")
