Storyline

Dexter wakes up in his totaled car and quickly remembers: Benny Gomez. The guy he killed. The guy whose body parts he has not gotten rid of. The paramedics whisk him away against his will; but soon Dexter is out of the hospital (against the doctor's orders) and out looking for the body parts. They aren't in the car. They aren't at the crash site. He must have stashed them somewhere until he could find them later. Unfortunately, his lack of sleep has deprived him of a key memory. Where did he put the body parts? A vision of Harry tries to help him remember, but work pulls him away from his urgent search. The department is trying to catch the Vacation Killer, who has just struck a second time. Meanwhile, the Trinity Killer is still on the loose, and Lundy joins Debra as she interrogates her prime suspect. Written by J. Spurlin

Crazy Credits

As Dexter finally has a chance to drive back to the boxing arena in search of his victim ('s parts), he thinks to himself "The boxing arena is at the next off ramp but I have miles to go before I sleep." A reference to the poem "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost. The poem reads, "The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep." See more »

Where Are the Remains of Benny Gomes?
24 July 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter is rescued with a concussion, but worried with the remains of Benny Gomes in his car. The doctor wants to keep him in observation but he sneaks out of the hospital with Rita, and lies to her telling that it was a fender bender. He is worried since if the police find Benny's remains in his car he will be in serious trouble. Meanwhile Angel and Lt. Maria LaGuerta are having a love affair. Agent Frank Lundy seeks information about the crime scene of Lisa Bell with Dexter. Dexter finds his kill tools in the wrecked car but no remains in the trunk. Meanwhile another tourist is murdered by the so-called "vacation murder" case and Lt. LaGuerta assumes the case. Dexter unsuccessfully seeks whether the remains had been thrown out of the car but he can not recall what he did with Benny. Meanwhile, Lundy invites Debra to have dinner with him to discuss Lisa Bell case and she misunderstands the reason of the encounter. Dexter finds a lead of the possible killer of tourists tries to find where he had hidden Benny.

In this episode Dexter is desperate with his fragmented recollections due to the trauma of his car accident. Debra is visibly disturbed with the arrival of Lundy. The romance of Angel and LaGuerta is conflictive with their hierarchy in the police department. The Trinity Killer has found his next victim after a careful observation of her habits. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Que Será dos Restos?" ("What Will the Remains Be?")
