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.

Dexter Morgan: [narrating] Today I wake up, kiss the wife-to-be, feed the stepkids-to-be, dress myself in the usual pants, shirt - pretense. But last night, it was no pretense. Miguel and I took a life. Together. And today, someone knows my truth. Shares my reality. I'm not alone.

It's Now Coming Together!
7 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the ninth episode of the third season of Dexter and after a relatively slow beginning to the season, everything is starting to come together. The pace is picked up and if anything, we learn more secrets. Especially those surrounding Miguel Prado, played fantastically by Jimmy Smits. This is more of an action-packed episode and judging from what I have seen, everything is more at stake.

In this episode, "About Last Night," Dexter finds out that Miguel killed on his own, the defense attorney Ellen Wolf which makes Dexter angry. Dexter decides to teach Miguel a lesson, but that comes up short once he realizes the true intentions of Miguel Prado. Meanwhile, Anton has been kidnapped by the Skinner and both Debra and Quinn begin to close on his location.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode with not a dull moment to be found. The ending is brilliant as we see the true emotions of Dexter and Miguel will realize that he has chosen the wrong guy to mess with. I cannot wait to see how all this will play out. I rate this episode 9/10.
