Storyline

With Debra recovering in the hospital, Dexter re-doubles his efforts to locate the Trinity Killer. Knowing that he is following the same pattern as his murders from 30 years ago, Dexter is sure he knows where he will strike next. Afterward, he follows the serial killer to his home and is shocked by what he finds. Dexter also has some explaining to do when Rita finds out that he never gave up his apartment and still keeps some of his possessions there. Sgt. Batista plants a news item about the suspected Vacation Murderer that bears fruit. Having told her superiors of her relationship with Batista, the Deputy Chief delivers some bad news to Laguerta.

During "Dex Takes a Holiday (#4.4), Frank Lundy is heard recording notes during his encounter with the Trinity killer. He quotes the physical description of the killer as being 200-220 Lbs. Later, in Dirty Harry (#4.5), Dexter is listening to the same tape recovered from the evidence room; the playback describes the Trinity killer as being 190-200 Lbs. See more »

Get rid of Rita
24 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I keep hoping that Dexter will find that Rita is an evil serial killer (as opposed to a less evil serial killer like Dexter) so he can "slice and dice" her. She is manipulative, selfish, self centered, unbelievably self-righteous, and completely controlling. I fast forward through most scenes with her because she is so irritating.

Are the writers really trying to portray the character as a good mother and devoted wife? If that is their intention then they can only be pandering to control-freak women who are obsessed with infecting every last detail of their husband's (or boyfriend's) life and thoughts.

Dexter's need to have Rita in his life is really creepy and nauseating.
