Storyline

In the aftermath of last season's chilling finale, Rita's death has left Dexter feeling responsible, possibly even...guilty. Unable to deal with the trauma, Dexter makes a drastic decision that will impact everyone around him. Quinn stirs up trouble at the station when he notes that Rita's murder, which is being pinned on the Trinity Killer, doesn't fit his normal murder profile. Things get even more heated when Quinn suggests to LaGuerta that they look at the husband: Dexter Morgan. Meanwhile, Quinn offers Debra much needed support, causing her to see Quinn in a new light.

Goofs

Although the events of this season take place right after the events of season 4, Desmond Harrington's character Quinn looks like he lost quite a few pounds. And also his haircut looks different. Also, Jennifer Carpenters character Debra Morgan's hair is longer. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Cop: Sir, did you call this in? Sir, what happened here?
Dexter Morgan: [narrating] I've watched 67 people die. And at the moment of truth, I looked into their eyes, and they knew, and I knew they got what they deserved. But what if that's not what happens? It you don't get what you deserve? If what you deserve is a white picket fence, and your kids all around, and a husband who loves you. What if the least you deserve is a real human being, and what you get is me?

Maybe the Most Dramatic and Emotional Episode
23 June 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dexter finds Harrison in a blood puddle and Rita dead in the bathtub and he calls the police. He feels responsible for her death and when the police officer arrives, he says that he did it. LaGuerta delivers the case to the FBI and despite the Trinity's modus operandi, Dexter becomes another suspect of the FBI and prime suspect of Quinn. Dexter feels alone and guilty, and decides to leave Miami and vanish. However after an incident, he meets Harry Morgan again , thinks more clearly and reevaluates his attitude.

"My Bad" is a great episode in the aftermath of Rita's death, with Dexter confused and disturbed. Maybe this is the most dramatic and emotional episode of this show. The talented Michael C. Hall is one of the best television actors and it is amazing that Hollywood has not discovered this magnificent actor for the big screen. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Meu Erro" ("My Mistake")
