Storyline

Dexter's relationship with Miguel Prado reaches a new level when he not only identifies the next victim but tells Dexter that he will kill him. Dexter knows he should probably bring this to an end asap, but he's enjoying himself teaching Miguel the ropes. Debra spends the night with Anton, her confidential informant and learns from Joey Quinn that he's never been officially a CI. She tells Anton the good news but he then vanishes. Lt. Laguerta and her friend Ellen Wolf attend a police function together. Rita 's hormones are in full tilt and everyone around her is paying the price. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

During filming, Jimmy Smits accidentally picked up a real knife that had been left on set instead of a prop knife and stabbed stuntman Jeff Chase in the heart. Miraculously, Smits hit a small plastic cover that had been affixed to Chase, and Chase was badly bruised but otherwise uninjured. Chase later noted that they had done 10 takes of the scene--where his character was tied up and about to be killed Dexter-style by Smits' Miguel Prado--and Smits had only hit his mark with the prop knife in two of them.

The Butterfly Effect
31 January 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Miguel Prado pushes his friendship with Dexter to an unexpected situation when he shows the next potential victim, the former football player Billy Fleeter, and tells that he wants to kill the criminal. Billy has never gone pro and has become an enforcer of gamblers, using a baseball bat on the skull of the debtors. Dexter teaches the principle of his code to Miguel, observing the habits and behaviors of the victim without being noticed. George King tells that his foreman Mario Astorga is a violent man and Debra and Quinn seeks the gardener out. Meanwhile, Debra has one night stand with Anton and on the next morning she discovers that her lover has never been officially appointed by Quinn as a confidential informant. When Debra visits Anton, she does not find him at home and sees the trimmed trees. Miguel kills Billy and while Dexter is cleaning the evidences of the execution, he visits Ellen Wolf.

In this episode, Dexter has an inner fight with the teachings of Harry and his code. The consequences of his judgment will certainly be the subject of next episodes. My vote is eight.
