Storyline

Dexter is resting with his family in his boat not worried about the Trinity Killer that has completed his cycle of murders. Out of the blue, he is summoned by Miami Metro to analyze an arm that has been found in the stomach of an alligator. He discovers that it belonged to the illegal waitress and aspirant model Estrella Carazo that has vanished. After the investigation Sergeant Batista finds that the photographer Jonathan Farrow is the prime suspect, but he gets no search warrant to check Farrow's studio. Farrow jumps to the top of Dexter's list and he breaks in the studio during the night seeking evidences to connect Carazo with Farrow. Meanwhile, Debra moves to Dexter's apartment and becomes disappointed with her father after interviewing his former criminal informant Valerie Hodges, and she gives up to investigate the truth about Harry Morgan interviewing other CIs. Dexter destroys the file of his mother since some secrets should not be found out. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: [voice-over of inner monologue] There's a moment sailors call slack tide. When the tide is neither coming in nor going out, but perfectly still. It's a moment frozen in time. When all is calm and peaceful.
[Dexter's phone rings]
Dexter Morgan: The only downside to it is that it passes too quickly.

Wrongly Jumping to the Top of the List

Dexter is resting with his family in his boat not worried with the Trinity Killer that has completed his cycle of murders. Out of the blue, he is summed by Miami Metro to analyze an arm that has been found in the stomach of an alligator. He discovers that it belonged to the illegal waitress and aspirant model Estrella Carazo that has vanished. After the investigation Sergeant Batista finds that the photographer Jonathan Farrow is the prime suspect, but he gets no search warrant to check Farrow's studio. Farrow jumps to the top of Dexter's list and he breaks in the studio during the night seeking evidences to connect Carazo with Farrow.

Meanwhile Debra moves to Dexter's apartment and becomes disappointed with her father after interviewing his former criminal informant Valerie Hodges, and she gives up to investigate the truth about Harry Morgan interviewing other CIs. Dexter destroys the file of his mother since some secrets should not be found out.

"Slack Tide" is a good episode where Dexter commits an error in his assessment and I do not know how it will affect his behavior in the future. The Trinity Killer is spared again and I do not envision other reason but last the fourth season to the maximum. Rita is terribly annoying and I do not understand why Dexter needs such pain in the ass at home. The boring soap opera between Angel and La Guerta continues. Quinn is teasing with the wrong guy. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Maré Mansa"
