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


After sharing his innermost secrets with Miguel Prado and allowing him to participate in a kill, Dexter is not pleased to learn that Miguel may have gone out on his own and killed someone. They had agreed at the outset that they would kill together so he decides to teach him a lesson. He soon realizes however that Miguel has been less than honest with him from the very beginning. The Skinner has kidnapped Debra's lover Anton and the police are now quite sure they know who he is. He proves to be an astute suspect and the one witness they do have won't say a word.

Feeling Something Real
31 January 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sylvia meets Rita and believes he is having an affair since he has not spent the night at home. When Dexter learns that Ellen Wolf is missing in the morning and Miguel went missing in the night, he connects the dots and finds her body in a open grave in the cemetery. Further, he finds that Miguel has lied to him from the beginning of their relationship and used him. Dexter lets the police find Ellen's body to have leverage with Miguel. Debra calls Anton along the day and she finally finds that her lover has been abducted by the Skinner. Debra and Quinn arrest George King but they are incapable to break him and Miguel tells that they do not have a case against King. However, they lure Mario Astorga and find the Skinner's hideout with the wounded Anton.

In this episode, Dexter admits that he should have followed Harry's code and he believes that Miguel has learned his lesson. The scheme plotted by Debra and Quinn works and they rescue Anton from the sadistic Skinner. My vote is nine.
