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.
Title (Brazil): "O Estrago que o Homem Faz" ("The Damage that the Man Does")
The episode evolves around Miguel asking for Dexter's help once again
to rid Miami from another Mal-doing thug, but with a twist- he wishes
to do the killing himself, under Dexter's guidance.
A fantastic episode. Well written, well directed. Jimmy Smits (Miguel) delivers his most convincing act to date. The episode bounces from tension, characters developing, shocking story developing and even humor breaks (by Ritta's pregnancy hormones) gently and with efficiency.
Next episodes will have to try hard to top this one, but considering the ending of the episode, the climax is just ahead.
This is the eighth episode of the third season of Dexter and it's one
tense, moving episode. This episode clearly defines the struggles that
Dexter is having with himself as he is sharing Harry's code for the
first time, perhaps to some dire consequences. We can clearly see the
relationship between Prado and Dexter at the highest point, but there
is something in this episode that stuff is going to going down really
In this episode, "The Damage a Man Can Do," Dexter and Miguel head out on their first kill together as partners. Rita's hormones are acting up and is taking it out on everyone. Debra and Anton are now together and Debra learns from Quinn that Anton was never a CI. Eventually, Anton goes missing and Miguel Prado is planning on paying his nemesis a visit.
Overall, this is a very great episode and is one of the best episodes this season. It seems like it's a gateway between the beginning of the season to the next three episodes. So like always, the end of the season is going to be a treat to watch. I rate this episode 9/10.
