One of the best episodes

Author: Tim Bayliss from United Kingdom
20 October 2009

Well Dexter is known as a heart-wrenching series that can go in any direction, and yet again it's just completely twisted off on a new tangent proving this is the best show on US TV.

The last scene is shocking, but very well filmed with great acting proving this episode should be nominated for awards to be honest.

The ending was so unexpected - I never expected them to do that, frankly i'm disappointed - but at least now i'm full of anger, wanting to watch the rest of the season to see if and when Dexter catches that S.O.B

Great writing and another amazing episode.

Recharging the Batteries

Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Rita travels with the children to attend the wedding of a relative without Dexter that has 72 h to enjoy freedom and "recharge his batteries". Dexter plans to meet Officer Zoey Kruger, who gave a perfect narrative to the crime of her husband and daughter, simulating a break in and planting the blood of the drug dealer Darius Rae. Dexter seeks new evidence of the crime but he is threatened by Zoey. Detective Quinn calls off his relationship with the reporter Christine after the release of a picture of Agent Lundy in the front page of the newspaper. Lundy investigates the Murphy's Tavern where Trinity would probably attack again, and he stumbles with the serial-killer. Debra spends the night with Lundy and sleeps with him; when they are in the parking area of the hotel, they are shot by someone.

"Dex Takes a Holiday" is another engaging episode of Dexter, with a tense and surprising conclusion with Debra and Agent Lundy shot by someone. I am looking forward to see the next episode to see the fate of Debra and Lundy. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Dex Sai de Férias" ("Dex Takes Vacation")

Dexter takes a holiday, alright

Author: s k from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The show; not the character. THREE -- count 'em -- THREE stupid little office romances have taken over this show like crabgrass takes over an otherwise healthy lawn. Quinn and Hill. LaGuerta and Batista. Morgan and Briggs/Lundy. And the BIG question that jumps to the front of the line is: WHO CARES?!!! In the first season the show wasn't bogged down with all this soap opera filler crap. Now, it is. And that's one of main reasons this show has become -- boring. Maybe they can grab Bochco and he can turn this into a rock opera, like Cop Rock!!! Maybe not. But you get my point. (Or maybe not.) Thank goodness for Netflix and the ability to fast forward through a lot of this crap. Lithgow is one of the best big bads of all time, yet he's absolutely wasted in this cesspool of irrelevant inconsequential drivel.
