Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Lt. Maria LaGuerta (as Lauren Velez)


With Miguel Prado now out of the way, Dexter thinks all he has to worry about is his wedding. Life isn't so simple however. Ramon Prado, who had been acting as Miguel's bodyguard, is now out to get Dexter. So is the Skinner, though Dexter doesn't quite realize it until he's taken prisoner. Debra is told by Angel Batista that he has recommended her for her detective's shield. That is until he learns that she spent the night with Anton when everyone thought he was a confidential informant. Dexter learns that Rita has been married twice before, her first marriage when she was only 16 followed by a divorce six months later. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Rita was married in Ashley, Mi; a city near the center of the lower peninsula. Her divorce papers were filed in Gratiot county where Ashley Michigan is located. Her first husband was from a real city in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. His hometown is listed as Clarksburg, which is west of Marquette, MI. See more »


Rita's marriage certificate from her first marriage gives her Date of Birth as 04/19/1989, her first husband's Date of Birth as 07/25/1984, and the Date of Marriage as 08/16/1989. There's no way that Rita is currently 19 years old, and no state would marry a four-month-old and a five-year-old. Besides that, in voice over Dexter says that Rita was 16 years old when her first marriage took place, which means that her Date of Birth should have been 04/19/1973, and her husband's probably 07/25/1973 or something close to that.

Dexter Morgan: [voiceover] I know that look. I've had that look. He likes control. Needs it. So I'll take it away from him.
Dexter Morgan: [calmly] I killed Freebo. Sorry 'bout that.
Dexter Morgan: I tied him up, not unlike this. Stabbed him in the left carotid artery. Used his 16-Inch carbon steel bone saw to separate his limbs.

Lessons "DEXTER" Taught Me...
23 December 2008 | by (Arlington, VA.) – See all my reviews

If I have learned anything from watching this show for three incredible seasons, it's not to second-guess the writing team behind the dark brilliance of each and every episode. What a roller-coaster ride it's been, but never as twisted, bumpy or unpredictable as Season Three, with this story arc featuring the dynamite Jimmy Smits as the deceptively sociopathic DA Miguel Prado.

Watching him go mano-a-mano with Michael C. Hall was like sitting in on a guitar duel between B.B. King and the late, great Bo Diddley, and I am sorry it had to end as all good things must. But DEX fans have certainly been gifted with the way this season of shocks and surprises has left our 'hero' - as a newly christened 'family man' - which is really the biggest surprise of all.

Is it really possible for him to remain in light while his "dark passenger" continues to go along for the ride? And what does the future hold for our vigilante serial killer, whose moonlighting work sometimes has a pesky and frightening way of following him home?

I don't know how closely the books have been followed at this point, but I know I'm hooked as long as this show is on, and I can't wait to start reading them.

So long until Season Four, Mr. Morgan. We hardly knew ye at Season One...and we're only starting to scratch the surface even now.
