The Butterfly Effect

8/10
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
31 January 2011

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")

Best episode of the season yet

9/10
Author: guy900 from Israel

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.

Another Great Episode!

9/10
Author: g-bodyl from United States
5 November 2014

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 soon.

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.
