With both Lila and Debra staying at his apartment Morgan finds himself living with, in his own words, a cobra and a mongoose. Rita tells Dexter that he's no longer welcome to just drop in, even if it's just to see the kids. Having decided that the Bay Harbor Butcher has experience in law enforcement, Special Agent Lundy informs the local officers that all of their old cases will be re-examined. Dexter is on the defensive and Lundy almost catches him out over one of his cases. As Dexter helps Lila clean up her loft after the fire, he realizes that something is wrong with her story as to how the fire started. He also comes to realize how dangerous her obsessive behavior can be. Dexter has a close call when his mother's killer decides to pay him a visit so Dexter decides to do what he should have done the first time they met. Sgt. Doakes, suspended for assaulting Dexter, breaks into his apartment looking for evidence. Written by garykmcd

Excellent Episode!
21 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the eighth episode on the second season of Dexter and it's a very good, tense episode. This episode has many surprising elements and sometimes I was taken off guard on what happened. They still know how to roll out the surprises and this is a good set-up episode for what will happen as we are nearing the finale.

In this episode, "Morning Comes," Dexter is told that he is not allowed to see Rita and the kids again. Dexter finds out that Lila deliberately lied to him about her house being on fire and Lila and Debra are at odds with one another. Dexter has another encounter with one of his mother's killers. Finally, Doakes breaks into Dexter's house as he is searching for evidence.

Overall, this is an incredible episode that promises even better things ahead. This has the element of surprise and they are used effectively. The acting is still fantastic and I'm excited to see what happens next. I rate this episode 9/10.
