As Dexter and Rita come home, Debra jokes that she showed Astor Saw (2004) and Saw II (2005). Julie Benz, who plays Rita, starred in Saw V (2008) which was released a month before this episode aired. See more »


Anton had an area of skin approximately 4 to 5 inches long and several inches wide removed from his back and shoulder extending nearly to the middle of the top of his shoulder. Yet when he meets Rita he's wearing a wife beater t-shirt that lays directly over the site of his injury. Little or no dressing is visible, and he shrugs his shoulders with out even a twinge. This seems unlikely with the size and depth of the injury seen. See more »


Dexter Morgan: [Thinking to himself] Just what I ordered: feigned civility with a heaping side of betrayal. It's becoming more and more clear that I'm going to have to deal with Miguel... Option one: I kill him. But he's too high profile. A popular A.D.A. disappears. The manhunt would be endless. Everyone he knows would be scrutinized. And that includes me. He's also my best man. I'd be expected to grieve... Option two: get him the hell out of my life. But its not that simple. He taught me how to golf. I ...

While Dexter is thinking about what he can do with Miguel, the ADA blackmails Dexter using Debra's affair with a potential witness in a conflict of interests. Dexter decides to seek Ellen's ring that Miguel took as a trophy, luring the housemaid. When Barbara is assaulted by a man, Angel asks Dexter to secretly examine a key with the DNA of the aggressor. Dexter finds the identity of the guy but advises Angel that certain doors should remain closed. Lt. Laguerta arrests the bartender that called Ellen Wolf three times in the tragic night and the man discloses that he saw a SUV with halogen headlights leaving her house. Miguel tries to manipulate Maria, but Dexter interrupts them. Rita tells Sylvia that Miguel is having an affair with Lt. Maria Laguerta and she heads to her house and ends their marriage. Miguel Prado sells Dexter to the Skinner telling that he knows Freebo's hideout. Dexter decides that he shall kill Miguel, but he is kidnapped and thrown in the trunk of a car.

In this episode, the duel between Miguel and Dexter reaches a climax with the Dexter's abduction. Lt. Laguerta recalls the lead of a SUV with halogen headlights when Miguel leaves her place and she might associate the dots in the next episodes. My vote is nine.
