Quotes

Dexter Morgan: [Almost chanting in his thoughts] If my first stab at Freebo has gone as planned / Oscar Prado might still be alive, / Miguel wouldn't know who I was, / Teegan would have lived to ho another day, / and Deb wouldn't be chasing a Jane Doe. / And I wouldn't be watching the clock, / counting the minutes till darkness comes, / trying to get the jump on my friends in blue.

Is Dexter's Luck Running Out?
10 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the second episode of the third season of Dexter and it slightly improves over the season opener as we get more involved in the story. If Dexter's life was good in the first episode, I would call in stressful in this episode. Dexter's luck is seeming to be running out as evidenced in this episode. Once again, Jimmy Smits is back as the ADA and he is doing a good job playing the man who wants to bring his son's killer to justice.

In this episode, "Finding Freebo," Dexter wants to locate Freebo before the police or the District Attorney does. Debra is relying on street informants to his whereabouts. Dexter finally hunts down Freebo, but once again something goes wrong. Meanwhile, Rita is confirmed that she is pregnant and now they must decide on what to do.

Overall, this is a promising episode and I think it's nice to see how Dexter tries to overcome his trouble. The final scene is excellent and I wonder what will happen further down the road. I rate this episode 9/10.
