Storyline

Dexter apologizes to Rita and admits to her that Lila was one of the biggest mistakes of his life. Lila on the other hand isn't quite as ready to give him up and shows up at the station hinting that she may have a few things to share with Dexter's colleagues. Under constant FBI surveillance, Dexter can't get rid of his last victim's remains. With the evidence he's acquired at Dexter's apartment, Sgt. Doakes seeks the help of an old friend in confirming its value. When Dexter realizes his slides are missing, he thinks the jig is up but Lundy and his FBI colleagues don't quite have it right. Special Agent Lundy and Debra spend the night together. Written by garykmcd

Chico: Seriously, what's Lundy got, or is he just blowing smoke? Deb: Seriously, I don't know. But if he's got something, it ain't smoke. Lundy's too good to blow smoke.

Dex loses it when his slides are gone. When he goes into the police station, he cuffs his hands like he is handcuffed. Pretty crazy that he didn't do or say anything during that time. He had no doubts he was done.

Doakes doesn't tell Laguerta that he is pretty sure Dexter is the Butcher, so she isn't in danger, but you'd think Laguerta would have some clue of it being Dex, if it was someone in the department. Especially with him in charge of the evidence, putting Doakes in a bigger hole.

Doakes catches Dex, but doesn't fire his gun when Dex starts moving fast at him, like he would an unknown. He wants to bring him in, but could of knee capped him, like he said.

Laguerta is a cold hearted bitch, but when it comes to someone she cares about, it's quite the opposite. I really love the scenes between her and Lundy. He definitely puts her in her place, and in a respectful way.

Funny how much over acting these FBI agents and extras do without even having lines. Touching ties, facial reactions, over interest in something being said hehe.

Fantastic episode, intense from start to finish.
