Storyline

Life is good for Dexter. His relationship with Rita is going really well and he's thrilled when Cody asks him if he would come to his school on Dad's day. He's also disposing of certain individuals according to his father Harry's code of conduct. He chooses his next victim, a drug dealer known as Freebo but on the night in question finds that a stranger is in the house. Dexter is attacked and kills the man who turns out to be Oscar Prado, the younger brother of a highly respected Assistant District Attorney Miguel Prado. Dexter can't quite figure out what Oscar was doing in the house and is bothered by the fact that he has killed someone outside of Harry's code. Dexter's sister Debra is put in charge of the Prado case by newly promoted Sgt. Angel Batista but her big mouth gets her into trouble. She is also approached by an officer from Internal Affairs who have an interest in a new squad member, Joey Quinn, but she refuses to cooperate. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Dexter arrives at the scene of Teegan's murder, he is talking with Debra as they approach the body. Depending on the angle, the camera strap around Dexter's neck flips, sometimes showing "Nikon" and sometimes showing the side without "Nikon". In the same scene, newly promoted Sgt. Batista is wearing his gold shield showing that he is a Sgt. In a later scene, the Lt. is presenting him with the gold shield. See more »

Quotes

Dexter Morgan: [voiceover] Most normal people enjoy a sacred pact with society. Live a good life and society will take care of you. But if society drops the ball then someone else has to pick up the slack. That's where I come in.

Life Is Good
13 December 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

On the day of Harry's birthday, Dexter is questioning his code. But he decides to kill the drug dealer Freebo, who has killed two girls, to celebrate the date. When Dexter break in his house, he is attacked by a stranger and he stabs the man in the heart. On the next morning, he discovers that his victim is Oscar Prado, the younger brother of the Assistant District Attorney Miguel Prado. Meanwhile Sergeant-Detective Angel Batista, who has been just promoted, assigns Debra to lead the investigation. However, Debra discovers some dark secrets about Oscar and she tells them in loud voice in the district. Miguel and Lt. Maria Laguerta overhear her big mouth and she is kept away from the case. The Internal Affair is investigating the new team member, Detective Joey Quinn, and Debra refuses to cooperate with information. Dexter's relationship with Rita is perfect and he has a huge surprise in the end.

I finally started seeing the Third Season of this outstanding series on Blu-Ray, and this promising first episode indicates what will be another excellent season. Debra's big mouth gets her into trouble with Miguel Prado and Maria Laguerta. Dexter apparently committed a serious blunder, violating The Code of Harry and killing an innocent man. What is the past problem of Joey Quinn? And the unexpected conclusion, how will it affect Dexter? My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): Not Available (neither on DVD nor in Blu-Ray)
