A Father and a Husband Like Dexter
7 August 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter visits Debra in the hospital where she is recovering. When Anton arrives, Debra tells the truth about Lundy to him and calls off their relationship. The police believes that Lundy and Debra were shot by the Vacation Murderer, but Dexter is sure that Trinity is the responsible for the crime. Rita receives a phone call from Dexter's landlord and she finds that Dexter has kept his apartment. Angel plants the information with Christine that Johnny Rose has syphilis and Nikki Wald guns down her partner, Maria discloses her relationship to her superiors and Angel is promoted and transferred to another precinct. Debra has a nervous breakdown. Dexter chases Trinity and makes an unexpected discovery.

"Dirty Harry" is another fantastic episode of Dexter. Rita is annoying when she discovers that Dexter has another apartment. The conclusion is absolutely unexpected. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Perseguidor Implacável" ("Implacable Persecutor")
